I got the first version of the Saitek Eclipse a couple years back. It did what it had to perfectly and without a hitch. I also liked how there were no superfluous keys. I didn't need any macro keys of multimedia. However, after a couple months of extensive use, the paint on the keys began to wear down. Soon, the WASD keys were not even legible. The newer versions supposedly fixed this problem. I have not purchased another Saitek keyboard so I do not know.
104 key keyboard with blue LED backlighting, a thin flat design, comfortable adjustable wrist rest and angle adjustment feet. Includes a nine button programmable pad (9 Blue LED backlit buttons) with two shift keys for up to 27 button commands. Saitek's smart technology software is included and adds 27 programmable macro functions.
