    Would you like some keys to go with your RGB lightshow?

    I want the opposite of this, I'd like only the letter to illuminate. Still waiting for the affordable OLED keyboard I guess..

    I have a 2013 Razer keyboard which, aside from the firmware being permanently broken, is pretty much perfect in terms of backlighting. Green lit keys through just the letter and a tiny bit of light around the edge of each key, making it easy to define the border peripherally. Unfortunately, this keyboard has been a catastrophe from a firmware perspective and Razer dealt with it poorly. It spent most of its life in a box until the USB side was improved (i.e. they fixed their side to accommodate shoddy programming) to at least make it recognised as a HID on boot reliably. It still malfunctions probably one in every eight times to the point where I've bought a USB hub with switches on to make resetting it easier. £120 keyboard. I WILL get my money's worth. We're almost at a point where I might consider buying a replacement, if only because the keys are obnoxiously loud.

    Razer is also on my no-buy list. It's a long list.

    These are the Elgato Streamdecks. They do not have OLED keys, the displays are LCD. https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Catego...t=&pageSize=12

    Too much bleed, just looks messy.

    I don't want a lightshow, I want something that works flawlessly... is there no options for use gamers anymore to get something actual mundane looking but state of the art... I don't want to get distracted by a lightshow or light polution.

    That's just the exaggerated look they've gone with for the promotional material, I have the Alloy Elite 1, and it was the same for that, but in real life they're no where near as bright as the photos make them out to be.

    Re: HyperX Alloy Elite 2 mechanical gaming keyboard launched

    Can't say I need another mechanical keyboard but I'd love to be able to get my hands on a set of pudding keycaps with a UK layout. All the ones I've seen elsewhere with the ISO-UK layout still come with the wrong '3' key - with the # symobol rather than £.

    If you want state of the art, check out Wooting's keyboards. The Wooting Two Lekker edition is sold out now but hopefully they'll be producing more keyboards with Lekker switches once the initial run is done.
