Looking for back-lit keyboard options...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Unlike the other thread, I don't really care for how quiet it is. I've looked at mechanical keyboards, but now I want to see if there are any cheap, decent offerings for non-mechanical keyboards. Price range for non-mechanical is 100 bucks or under. It must allow blue led back light for all keys. It must be WIRED. It'd be best if there was some way for me to clean the inside of it. I prefer for it to have a few macro keys. I've looked on Newegg, and the top-rated keyboards don't allow Shift and Space and W, etc etc and it is very annoying. If I can't find a good keyboard I might get no new keyboard, or the Duck Shine II.

Thanks in advance!

I would go a little higher and get a Sidewinder x6. Its the best non-mechanical i've ever used.

I'm currently using a G110 from Logitech. Works pretty well and is under the $100 price point.

I LOVE my Logitech G510, and I can set the keys as any color. smile.gif I got mine for $80 I think. Also the G keys are nice when you need a quick macro.

Problem here is, if I go any higher, I might as well get Ducky II.

If only the new quickfire rapid mechanical had led options instead of just red then you could have mechanical and backlighting for under 100 lol.

I'm pretty sure the Roccat isku has blue back light and is about 85 dollars. You could check that one out.
