Best light up keyboard?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
What is the best light up keyboard around? I'm looking for a build like Apple's keyboards http://grab.by/b5QY I HATE Apple, but i love the build of their keyboard. It's also the same build as a HP Touchpad Keyboard.

Maybe something like the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard?

I was looking at that also, this one:

But it looks like it has hollow keys, I'm using a HP VooDooDNA (aka Razer Lycosa) and the keys wiggle and feel cheap.

The best? Probably the Deck Legend or Deck 82. Or Optimus Maximus. Or XArmor U9BL / U9BL-S (discontinued) or Ducky Shine (coming to the US soon).

The funny way the keycaps work on the optimus maximus make it not very nice to type on from my understanding. The application profiles I imagine are nice, but is it really a keyboard at that point?

I have one of those logitech illuminated boards, it has some pretty nice scissor switches. If you're used to heavy switches you might press them way to hard and leave your joins sore. I did that for a little while comping from my Razer Lycosa, but the Lycosa has funny feeling keys even among other rubber dome boards. That illuminated board is probably one of the better non mechs out there, but for the price you could get a mech. One nice thing is that I think the key caps feel pretty durable, I don't get the impression that they'll just rub off. It's 80 dolllars for a non mech, so the maybe the keys are dye subs or double shots? I'd check but I dunno how it handles keys being removed.

Ducky Shine, or Deck Legend

MAYBE Black Widow Ultimate Stealth (people say it has build quality issues. Apparently the Stealth fixes the 6KRO though)
MAYBE Corsair K90 if you don't mind having some rubber dome keys (I won't be buying one because of that though)
