Pros: Easy to use, cheap, good gaming keyboard
This keyboard is a follow up to the successful Saitek Eclipse I keyboard, neither of which are available anymore which is a shame as this is such a good keyboard. I used to own one of these KB's a while back but it broke and I tried the Saitek Eclipse Litetouch, but didnt like that at all due to it having half sized or laptop style keys on it. I searched for ages and managed to pick up this keyboard on ebay, thankfully it was in great condition.
The SE2 is as simple a keyboard as youll ever find, includes the usual full QWERTY layout, a small light control dial in the top right corner to control the level of brightness when the keys are set to illuminate. It also includes volume up/down button, pause/play/stop button, mute/light on.off button, fast forward/rewind button.
You can choose between blue, red or pink to illumnate the keys, i prefer the pink colour as this is the brightest colour in my opinion and easiest to use at night. All the keys are easily recognizable in a dark room when illuminated and gaming /typing is easy.
One problem I had with this keyboard, albeit probably my fault, is that I like to move my KB around alot on the desk and one day whilst pulling it down using the up/down arrows one of the keys broke, so I swapped it for the least used key on my KB, which was the .DEL button from my numpad. But it works as good as new since swapping, so not really a con but be weary that the keys can snap away when pulling on them.
All in All a great keyboard, cheap, good quality build, easy to use at night. 5/5
