Great Keyboard - 04/28/13 01:14 PM

Hey guys, I haven't posted in a while, but this one is worth it. First let me say I have no affiliation with NewEgg or Azio, this is straight from the heart.

If you have vision problems or work in a dark environment, this is absolutely the best keyboard I’ve found . http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823839013 , $30 with free shipping.
It has over sized letters on the keys, back lighted in blue, red, or violet LED color. The blue I don’t like, not enough contrast against the black keys. I don’t understand why other makers of illuminated keyboards don’t get this.
It’s the “while supplies last” part in the description that scared me, so I bought a second one just in case.
So many great ideas have come and gone in the past, this may be another get it while the getting is good situation.

Don't worry about getting them, you can buy them on Amazon with free shipping. I looked into them when I bought my last illuminated ones but ended up with with a Logitech. Good to know this one is good also.

Hey Ana, as someone who is facing cataract surgury, I'm definately open to suggestions. Please tell me more. If there's a better way, I'm all for it.

Mine is likely no better than this one, I just bought a Logitech illuminated keyboard. I type at night and have low lighting so the illuminated is a must for me. I got mine from Best Buy but it was only at the store and not online.

I've had a Logitech K800 illuminated keyboard for almost 2 years now and it's the best keyboard I've ever had! The light is soft, but crisp at the same time. I love it... my cataracts are getting close to needing surgery too, Albert. That large print looks great!

I even love the tactile feel of the keystrokes on this keyboard. I can use mine wired or wireless - great keyboard!

Ohhhh! Just what I needed. I have a keyboard in a pull-out drawer on my roll-top desk. It's very dark in there, so I put a compact keyboard on the desk surface that I use when I need to be concise about numbers, etc. Lighted is something I never thought about. Soooo thanks to you guys, I also ordered mine from Amazon with the free shipping. Can hardly wait for it to arrive and free up the space on my desk. bravo

That's interesting. Thanks for sharing Albert!

All the best for your eyes and an upcoming cataract surgery to Albert and Draclvr!

Ana: how about our migraine? Doesn't it give you a headache looking onto the illuminated keys for a longer time?

I don't really look at my illuminated keys for long periods since I type by touch. It's just nice to be able to see them in the dark when you need to. I will always have an illuminated keyboard from now on!

I just glance at it when needed Evelyne and it's just enough light to see the keys but not enough to hurt your eyes.

It also does not light up until you wave your hands over it. If you aren't typing the light goes off.

Ana: sounds great. Now I have to look whether I can get that magical thingy (waving hand and so..) also in Switzerland. Thank you sweetie!

It is magical, Gimli, and one of my favorite things about this keyboard!
