I really don't see the selective lit area as useful...if you play the game long enough...you're used to the keys used.

I have a Saitek Eclipse II....... NCIX.com - Buy Saitek Eclipse 2 Keyboard Silver Black 104 Key W/ Purple Red Blue Key Illumination - PK02U In Canada.
and an older Logitech G15. I like the Saitek more. It has 3 different backlight colors and it's brighter then the G15.

i guess there isnt a keyboard that lights up each keys individually

the cyborg looks so back in the future like...and i dun like the looks of it

perhaps the lycosa is my best bet
would it be possible to do a mod on a lycosa to make all the keys light up red?

Highly unlikely, and for a $100 approx. keyboard, it would be a expensive mistake. If anything, just get a saitek that already can light up red.

The Lycosa is coming out with a red and a green version in the near future, your just going to have to wait a little bit for them to arrive (I'm waiting)

Well I know that they did in fact make them... so why they arn't releasing them as of yet... waiting for the blue ones to sell...? Maybe they did decide that it wasn't worth the money to release them... not sure. I am sending them an e-mail to see though (will update if they respond)

my freind had the G11 and the G15
i had the opportunity to try them out

for me i dun really like clicky keyboards it didnt really appeal to me
and the macro keys are too far off to regular hand positions to be able to do anything in games

but these critisms apply to most high end keyboards today lol

i really like the LCD screen on them though

I have the G15 rev2 (orange LEDs). Easily the best keyboard I've used. I haven't used any Saitek or Razer keyboards, however this G15 is great to type on. Eventually it comes down to personal choice. If you can, go out and try typing for a bit on each one and get a feel for them, then get the one you like. What feels good for one person won't for another :)
