Haven't seen that particular keyboard before but I have a Corsair K90 and it's been a wonderful keyboard for me, worth taking a look at.

Another good quality keyboard would be the Deck Legend Ice, haven't used one myself but you can really only find people saying good things about Deck keyboards. They're a little pricier than most but the quality is usually better and it's USA made. I believe ComputerEd has one of these so maybe he'll chime in.

I assume you want mechanical as well? Your post doesn't specify, just going off of what you linked.

^ I got mine for $60, but sold to a friend for the same amount. It's hit or miss for Quality issues, but if you get a good one, man, it's a great keyboard.

I purchased a razer kb before. The color was dim and it seemed cheaply made. I am looking at mechanical type keyboards.

You want it bright you say? Mine is so bright at the highest setting that I use the lowest setting. I have the Cherry black version but they have browns, reds, and blues too.

If you are willing to spend the money the best quality mechanical keyboard I have found with backlighting is the Deck Legend.

Deck Keyboards


You can choose from two different shades of blue.

I've used blackwindow for 4-5 months and really enjoyed the 'feeling' before giving it to my sis.

Very nice keyboard,it is a bit expensive though. Not saying I wouldn't do it but I would really like to spend less then 200.00 dollars.

The ultimate is not like the rest of their crappy keyboards. The keys are bright enough where I leave it on at night by the foot of my bed so that I can see where I am going at 2 am in the morning when I need a pop tart :lol: . I am not kidding either, it really does light up my room. You have different modes too, so you can choose the amount of lighting that suits you best. It is also very heavy, and the USB pass through is great. I think the best part is the cherry mx blue switches. It is nice and clicky with enough of macro keys to keep you happy. Plus you can grab them for less than 100 bucks which is a steal for a back lit mechanical keyboard with blue switches.

There are the ducky shine boards in heaps of colours and even a new scheme with black keyboard with white keys and the same ol' backlighting and cherry mech keys of choice
