Any *backlit* clicky (or good tactile feedback) KB with UK, IT or US-ISO layout ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, first post here, just registered because this nice room.

Ok, I'm going to elaborate my questions...

#1 I need a backlit keyboard, mandatory.

#2 I need a keyboard with the ISO layout (I hate the US/ansi enter key), so UK (preferred), Italian (second choice), or US/ISO (still fine) layouts are OK for me.

#3 Volume integrated controls are welcome, but not mandatory

#4 I like a good tactile feedback, and I like both the click keys, and the feedback of the thinkpad keyboards.

#5 I'm a nitpicker about the input peripherals: e.g. just swapped the my Chicony built Thinkpad keyboard whit an NMB one (the alternate part number) because the former is too soft and has too little tactile feedback for my taste.

#6 in the past I used the MS/Razr Reclusa which was too big but whit more than acceptable feeling/build quality, now I'm using a sidewinder X6 and I think that is one of the biggest piece of crap I ever tried.


Now I want to switch to some good alternative.

Given the points above, is correct to say that my only options are the black widows on the clicky side and the logitech illuminated ones, on the scissors side ?

Has anyone tried both the illuminated (wireless/wired), they supposedly have the same feeling but reading a bit I found that probably this is not true, has anyone tried both of them ?



Tanks in advance for asking to one or more of my doubts

Indeed was exactly my question, I want a real keyboard, but I want it backlit, and with the ISO layout.

No backlit mechanical keyboards with an ISO enter to my knowledge. Lots with ISO, and several with backlighting, but those two don't seem to overlap.

The only backlit mechanicals I know of are the Razer Black Window Ultimate and the Deck Legend/82. Both will be US layout though, Legend doesn't have media keys unless you want to use autohotkey or equivalent to rebind some keys for that. (Also as a side note you can not bind the 'FN' key on the board to work as your switch key.)

The black widow non ultimate is available with the UK layout, as I mentioned on my first thread. The DL/82 is not tactile and I just see it with the small enter key winch is understandable given the small dimensions but this doesn't solve my problem of constantly hitting the "/" key instead of the ENTER one.

Probably I will go for the Razer Ultimate (tough I hate such idiotic font in its keycaps) with the BW UK layout, which I find the perfect layout even if no one uses/knows it in my country (and in other all countries Ireland excluded).

BTW thanks for your replies.

Being the only option I ordered the black widow, I really don't like many things like the glossy surface, the idiotic font and the lack of usb present on the ultimate (that doesn't have the UK layout).

Also the blue cherrys are not the my 1st choiche, I like a lot the clears and i prefer an orange or amber or yellow retroillumination over the usual withe or blue.

BTW if I will be satisfied about the rest I'll probably mod it swapping the leds and (if I can) the switches.
