Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard ReviewPosted on 2007-07-18 12:51:32 by Thomas De Maesschalck
The most prominent feature is of course the most frivolous: the dimmer-controlled, multi-color back-lighting. The colors are a manly blue, a macho red and nice, frilly pink. Okay, I know it's supposed to be purple, but trust me...it's more pink than purple. I mean really, would Obi-Wan Kenobi carry a pink light saber? At least the lady gamers will have something to go with a Power Puff Girls case mod. Frivolous or not, the lighting looks cool and it actually comes in handy in low light settings such as LAN parties. And the back-light combined with the laser-etched keys is much more aesthetically pleasing than the pale blue of many lighted keyboards.
