Logitech Illuminated Keyboard

I like Logitech products, I love my MX1000 mouse and I love the keys layout my keyboard had. Which actually turned out to be a problem when I started looking around for a keyboard to replace my current, classical old, keyboard. The thing is, Logitech made some keyboards with a specific layout I grew used to for the past years I’ve been typing on it. Especially when scripting, you get used to the Tab placement, the strangely sized Enter as well as the size and placement of Shift and other keys. This was a bit of a problem as most keyboards out there, including those from Logitech, didn’t have this same layout, which bothered me. Even more so when I wanted an illuminated keyboard.

But suddenly, Logitech listened to my prayers :D and offers an awesome board, simply called, Illuminated Keyboard. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it in the retail stores! It was exactly what I was looking for! The layout was perfect, the illumination just awesome, with controllable illum. levels. The function keys work perfectly in combination with the FN key, which is a great concept and I love it. And typing on it is just flawless! Quiet and precise. It has a cord though, so if you prefer cordless peripherals, this might be a dealbreaker for you, but still, give it a try at a store or somewhere, you’ll see what I mean by “perfect”. Another good feature, which is a standard, is the USB port. I used to have a PS/2 keyboard and since there is a bug in Vista’s x64 version of the PS/2 driver, I had issues typing when my CPU hit a certain peak point, which happens quite often when test rendering and such, so I’m really happy to get rid of this annoyance.

Simply put, this is the best keyboard I’ve ever used and I’m very happy Logitech addressed my wishes to 100%! If you like Logitech keyboards and are looking for a high-tech illuminated replacement, this is your best bet!
