Clear: not clicky and have a tactile bump (heavier then the browns)
Reds: not clicky and linear (lighter than the blacks but these are rarely made anymore)
In my order of preference:

Blacks
Blues
Browns
Clear
Red

As has been said though, a backlit mechanical keyboard for <$100 does not exist. Unless you can find a really great deal on a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate, as that's the most likely one to be found with a discount.

The Mionix Z60 is coming out. It has backlighting. It's reported to have black switches. I would go for a BlackWidow if you really want backlighting (I find it pointless) since it has blue and backlighting.

Not for under $100 and new.
Cheapest mechanical with lighting is the Black Widow Ultimate and I think thats going for about $130-$140.

PS
I'm actually surprised to the vagueness of the responses and how many people actually read his criteria.

There's also an Xarmor rebrand from Qpad, doubtful either of those will be sub $100 though.

Blank keycaps > backlighting

$17 over budget, but you'll have to go over if you want backlit keys.

That's more like it.

If you can't afford $17 get a job.
