Anyone using these "Illuminated" keyboards?
These look cool! I've been looking at them and think this one together with a black LCD and Black Logitech cordless mouse and 5.1 speakers would be a hella cool desk area!
Anyone used these yet? How do they work? Do the keys have a nice feel? I'm generally picky about my keyboards so I'm a little shy of spending $100 on this without someones endorsment!!!
What do you guys think?

Yeh if it wasn't a laptop keyboard layout I'de get one. But laptop keyboards suck and so does this I'm afraid.

no experience with them and i must agree they are not my cup of tea and i could think of a lot i could do with $100
how about buying some of that neon string and jazzing up your standard keyboard?

yeah reminds me of a laptop keyboard, but it does look really cool. I hate laptop keyboards, I loved the old keyboards thjat made the big "click" when you pushed it down

i had to use one of those older ones when i bust my regualr soft-touch one. the satisfying clunk and the novelty of having to whack the keys soon worse off when i got down to writing an essay

Tuxy I have the exact same altec lansing speakers!!
As for the keyboard, I agree, if the layout wasn't so crammed I'd like it more.

I don't like the feel of laptop keyboards and I wouldn't spend $100 on a laptop keyboard.

I may just be thinking out loud, but I'd prefer if just the characters (letters, numbers, symbols, etc) were lit, and not the entire key. Sorta like a car's spedometer. This one here has too much light for my tastes.
Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.
