Saitek II Backlit Keyboard
If you're in the market for a new keyboard, the Saitek II Backlit Keyboard makes a chic choice. You have a selection of backlighting colors (purple, red, and blue) which are adjustable by a dimmer. Both the laser-etched key characters and keypad illuminate, making the board useful whatever your lighting circumstances (especially if you're a night owl like me). There are media keys for volume control, play/pause, and skip tracks, angle adjustment and extendable wrist rest (for fatigue free experiences), and the ever-friendly 104 key layout.
It's a great keyboard and light-show all in one, and what suprised me the most is that the colors didn't bother me or cause my eyes to tire. In fact, they're rather useful (especially if you're sharing the bedroom with a special someone who gets irritated with your late-night Internet carousing).
