Default Illuminated Keyboards

was thinking about getting an illuminated keyboard since i always play at night was just wondering which one is worth the buck, been doing some research and the one keyboard that always seems to be positive is Saitek Eclipse http://techgage.com/article/saitek_e...nated_keyboardbut thats kinda expensive am looking for something decent but still in the $20-$30 range

if you guys/ladies have some suggestions that would be great

That keyboard is the one I'd recommend. I like it, personally.

If you've got the cash, I would get this:
http://www.razerzone.com/Products/Ga...ming-Keyboard/
That's pretty intense, lol.

I just froogled for the Saitek, and it's only $50 here:

And there's a decent $30 one here:

that Razer Tarantula is sicckkk, i want it

and this one:
is bad. I've read up on it and the buttons are made very cheap. Like you have to hit the space bar in the middle, no where else, to get it to work.

and its 17.99 on newegg

Only Razer has gaming keyboards on the market capable of 1000Hz or 1 ms response time. A standard keyboard has a native 8 ms delay between the keystroke and the key’s reaction.
like anyone could tell lol? i highly doubt you can feel the difference.

Yeah, but it's just an insane keyboard overall.

The macro keys look useful, although I probably wouldn't end up using them. And that headphone jack would be really nice to have.

It would be sweet to work for them, and like design the layout for hardcore gamers. "Hey boss, I gotta go play some CS now to test out the new layout..."

I own that keyboard actually. IT FREAKIN ROCKS!!!!! No joke, it's the best keyboard I've ever had. The pressure to press the keys is absolutely perfect, you can change the lighting of the LEDs under the keys, it's got media buttons, it's an AWESOME keyboard. I love mine to death. =D
