    Well they are in an I have just ordered one, so I hope they are decent keyboards. Seeing some reports saying the LED lighting is a bit naff but as I work in the dark most the time this should help to some degree seeing the keys

    they're great keyboards. got one on my main rig. its brilliant cos i sit in my darkened room most of the time, and i can see what i'm typing

    The keys have got a nice weighty feel to them, and the whole keyboard looks beautiful in the dark and light

    What are the keys like on them? soft, clicky, a nightmare to use?

    i guess i will find out soon enough when it arrives. I have one of those Logitech Internet Pro black keyboards, had it 6 months and the keys are dying on them, I expected better I got 5 years out of my MS Natural keyboard.

    I have beeen looking for a decent keyboard that I could see in darkness. I suffer from really bad headaches and have done for the last 14 years since I was a kid. So aslong as I can see the keys at times when playing and burning the midnight oil it will be doing its job. Due to the computer room getting the sun all day, the blinds are always shut during the weekends so the room is a dark room the majority of the time

    It would be perfect for you. The keys have just enough "click" to be ok, while being quite soft. The keyboard has 2 light settings (and off) so they are very easy to see in the dark. Especially as the actuall letters/numbers are clear so you can see them perfectly

    Thats good, now all I need to do is get the doctors to actually do something about the headaches, I get a headache on monday and it can last right through till the next monday, i go to sleep with the headaches and I wake up with them. Doc won't send me for a scan though, I know a few others who have the same problem, spoke to them and they gave me info about others who suffer it, seems 99% of the docs aint got a clue what it is apart from the fact that they tend to die off the older you get >.< not good news to say the least. Embarassing at work to when you are sitting in a pitch black office due to the headaches and having to explain to people why it is I am sitting in the dark.
