I don't think there are any in that price range.There are only a few back lit mechanical keyboards out there.Deck legend but you would have to jump up in price.

Here is a red backlit mechanical but its a collectors edition.

Thanks guys. I like Dragon Age but i think that collectors edition is taking it too far. I can extend my budget for the Deck Legend, I just wanted to see if there were any cheaper alternatives.

I've only seen the Black Widow as the only backlit mechanical keyboard. Unless there are some that are like $150+, which I wouldn't even care to look at.

Have seen that red backlighting on a Sidewinder X6, and I'd avoid it. It looks as if your the keyboard is going to bleed. Much of a shiny red light, like a stop lamb. If you don't mind the Razer's build quality (which somehow ends up to be iffy), you can get the regular Black Widow with blue backlightning. It's a good keyboard. If not, then I'd move up to a solid Deck Legend.

Keep your eye out on OCN's Ducky Shine, because the initial release will actually be red LED's.

Oh why... believe me, I tried to adjust myself more than once on the Sidewinder X6 I tried. Turned the light level up, down, again. Repeat. Doesn't work. Personally, red backlightning just takes away my eyes.
