Deluxe Backlit Keyboard
You can type in the dark without making a mistake using this Deluxe Backlit Keyboard from Monoprice!
This keyboard features blue LED lighting for each key. The light illuminates the letters as well as the edges of each key. The illumination can be turned on and off using a key where the Scroll Lock key normally goes (this keyboard does not have a Scroll Lock key). The USB cable is about 58" long.
The keyboard wobbled as I typed when I first got it. Very annoying. The body of the keyboard must not be straight because after removing the left and center front rubber feet, the keyboard was balanced and no longer wobbled. I re-positioned the rubber feet I removed a bit further back so the bottom of the keyboard does not touch my desk and now it's rock solid.
PROS: Illuminated keyboard functions well and looks cool
CONS: Keys are a bit mushy and have a rubbery feel
Wobbled until I remedied the problem myself
No frills of any kind
No way to change the angle of the keyboard
I would absolutely purchase this keyboard again.
PROS: Nice backlight, pleasant blue color. Smooth operation.
CONS: Sometimes my "N" key sticks down - Not an issue, just something I noticed.
PROS: easy to see the keys in darkened room
CONS: It would have been nice if it automatically lit up when you turn on the computer
I wish someone made keyboards in white, off-white or light gray for seniors who have trouble seeing black keyboards.
PROS: Chiclet style keyboard keeps keyboard cleaner
Back light can be turned on or off
CONS: None that I've noticed.
— Keyboard is an odd small/mid-size form factor, larger than the laptops I've used but smaller than any keyboard that wasn't explicitly marketed as "small form factor." It was maybe a little too big for my 4-foot tall child, and maybe a little too small for me as a 6'4" adult.
— Keys are depress and return softly in volume (quiet in operation) but also in force (little kinetic response to indicate the key has returned to an 'up' position). It's not a mechanical switch keyboard, obviously, but the keys are a little squishier than what I'm used to.
PROS: — LED is bright enough for clear legibility of keys, even after I accidentally put a 100W bulb in the light fixture above my computer.
CONS: — Backlight defaults to off whenever the computer powers down completely.
PROS: Very good inexpensive backlit with interchangeable keys keyboard.
CONS: The keyboard arrived with two keys off and one stuck that I had to cut pieces of plastic with a box cutter to finally get it unstuck.
Keys are mushy. Hard to make contact. Space bar needs a hammer to "make it space".........
PROS: Nice blue light.
CONS: Cramped, mushy feel to keys.
No volume up/down or mute. Deal-breaker right there.........
PROS: Really like the led lighting.
CONS: Not built to last.
CONS: The number row of keys don't work.
PROS: Good feedback from keys, easy to get up and running with USB
CONS: backlight function does not work
