Saitek Eclipse Lite Touch keyboard any good?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
NCIX has them on sale for $35, regular price is $150.

It's wireless, LED backlit, has a built in trackball and comes with an LCD touchscreen.

I'm thinking it would be handy for my media PC in the living room and at this price (I paid $100 for my Logitech K800 and it doesn't have half the features).


Does anyone have any experience with this?

theyre decent, all the keycaps will fade off fast on you though. i think the cyborg v2 or whatever is a better bargain keyboard from saitek personally (ive used both)

If it's of any consolation, I own a Saitek Eclipse II for a backup computer and it has served me well for being a rubberdome. Saitek has great support too. Being a rough typer and being very used to mechanicals, I broke the space bar clear off the keyboard. I called Saitek's support department and they sent me a space bar replacement (as well as the piece needed to hold it in place) less than a week later.

Did you buy it? I'm thinking of getting one too but all I see is nothing but bad reviews. The wrist rest looks rather uncomfortable as well, and the material looks cheap and gimmicky..

It's online purchase as well, but if you really don't like it there's no returning it..
