    The keys aren't really backlit.

    Maybe I'm just not easily impressed - but this keyboard seems like a completely average piece of equipment to me. I give it a downgrade for deceptive advertising though. I bought it thinking the actual characters on the keys were backlit - little glowing letters and symbols. They do not. What is "backlit" is just the base of the keyboard - which actually makes the characters on the keys harder to see if you should ever like to glance down at them. Otherwise, what it is is a bunch of poorly marked black keys suspended in a silly light-up base. And even the light-up base is pretty underwhelming.
    It functions otherwise as any plain old keyboard. *yawn* I returned mine. If the characters had REALLY been backlit - THAT would have been cool and improved functionality. As it is, it's an overpriced bauble for those who just are awestruck by most anything.
