Product information: Eclipse 2 Illuminated Keyboard - Blue/Red/Purple

Man lives in the flourescent-lit world of what he believes to be…reality…but there is, unseen by most, an after-hours world…a place that is just as real, but not as brightly lit or well-ventilated…a dark side. It can be found in my parents’ basement during one of my twice-weekly LAN parties. Just brush aside those Taco Bell wrappers, plug your PC into the network switch, and make yourself at home. Hope you brought a Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard, because I can’t concentrate with the lights on. Like a crucifix brandished at an advancing horde of vampires, its backlit, laser-etched keys keep the forces of darkness at bay. Choose from berserker red, royal purple, and – my personal favorite – Merlin blue backlighting, and adjust it with the dimmer mechanism. The Saitek Eclipse II isn’t just about the light show, either. With a sturdy, weighted base and a great tactile feel, your fingertips shall wanderest through the realms of gloom in comfort fit for a suzerain. And beware, impudent multimedia files: here there be hotkeys! The dark side is always there…waiting for us to enter…waiting for the Saitek Eclipse II. Until my next LAN party, try to enjoy the daylight.

Very Nice Keyboard

Bought this for the lights and very good reviews, so here I am writing another one.
Orderd on saturday, came on sunday with the Roccat Kone V2 and togther the two light up my desk like a disco.
The keyboard is SO MUCH SMOOTHER than my last one and the wrist rest is perfect, not to high and not to low, so my wrist no longer cramp and get sore from the desk corners.
Dunno what else I can say that others haven't.
Soft, gentle and easy to type keys.
All the lights work perfectly fine and the dimmer switch is perfect.
Only down side is there are no macro keys, but I can't put that down since its not designed for them.
So 5/5
Good quality keyboard from Saitek.

Saitek FTW

I bought the Saitek eclipse keyboard, when they were re-released back in 2005 with the 'eclipse' motif.

This keyboard has seen the rise and fall of my Counter Strike days, was around when I rolled my first character in World of Warcraft and even performed steadily when I began playing the latest instalments of Call of Duty and Need for Speed.

Truly an awesome keyboard, so reliable and well made. I'm typing on it now.

The only clue to its age is a barely noticeable fade effect on the "E" of the eclipse motif above the arrow keys.

Truly an awesome company, awesome keyboard and I'd be willing to hedge my bets that the latest build quality of these keyboards will serve their buyers just as well as mine has served me.

Saitec Eclipse 2

here i sit in the dark writing this review. this is an awesome keyboard. typing feels sooo nice that i just want to find something to type, infact that also plays a role in me writing this review now. click sound is not loud or not silent, just perfect. when i sawe everyone playing and typing in the dark with this keyboard i thought they were crazy. why would u want to do that? well now i totally understand. it looks amazing and i can say the brightest color is red,blue,purple respectively change between colours is very fast. although when u open up the computer it lights up as blue, this can be changed immediately with 1 touch to the button.

overclockers service was brilliant. ordered with dpd before 12 next day delivery, received at 11:59 (lol)

Overall 5 stars for amazing service+product.

quality keyboard

Just got it to day and it works a treat
keys feel very nice dont make too much noise while typing
really digging the colours you can switch between

only niggle was that the media keys didnt work with itunes stairght out the box but that was resolved by going to the saitek support section on the website and they have a solution at the ready take to minuets to configure and itunes now works with the media keys

Worth the money

Ordered yesterday at 3pm, got it this morning bright and early.

Very nice to use, decently weighted and feels like it could last many years.

For the price you seriously cannot go wrong, their is much more expensive keyboards which cannot hold a candle to this.

One wicked keyboard

Had this keyboard for 3 years and have had not one problem yet!

Feet give two height adjustments. They have not broken and the wrist rest after being snapped off a few times quite hard still hasn't broken.. of course being plastic it has a limit but after 3 years of use it's pretty good.
The keys respond the same as when it first got plugged in new and it has had quite a lot of use since, especially the space bar which is still perfect!

USB connection lead could be another foot or two longer but the length it has is adequate.

Even though it has three LED colours, when the PC gets shut off and KB powered down, the colour always starts at the first in the three, by default mines always blue which is probably the safest colour anyway, it works for me!

The keys design means light comes through the character so you see the keys clearly in the dark and also the print dosen't get worn off through use.

I would replace my Eclipse II with another without any hesitation!
