Backlit Keyboard

I'm looking around for backlit keyboards, but I don't want anything too expensive. It would also be nice to have multimedia keys if possible. Also, if there's any good mice as well. I'd just like to look around because I'm thinking about changing mine. I don't have too much to spend so good deals would be nice.

How much are you looking to spend? Do you want a Mechanical keyboard, or a membrane keyboard?

Not exactly sure on a price, but I'm definitely not spending over 100 on a keyboard. I just find that ridiculous. As for the membrane or mechanical. Not entirely sure. I want something quiet when I type.

Newegg.com - Logitech 920-000914 Black 106 Normal Keys USB Wired Ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard

This is what you need then. I have one, and it was great. Not as good as my mechanical keyboard, but one of the best membrane keyboards I've felt. Different levels of brightness, plenty of multimedia keys and very quiet. A good price too.

Yeah, I've seen that. I was looking for more options and opinions though. Right now I have a wireless Logitech set that I like, but I'd like something better. I might switch this wireless over to my old computer for watching movies and what not.

Something better and you start getting dangerously close to $100. For the features and the even, clean illumination it is a damn good keyboard for the money. I have got one, that is why I recommended it.

Not too sure I like the backspace key though. Never got the feel of the small ones and the delete key.

I had to look and see if there was something different about it lol.......I never even noticed it! My new keyboard has the small Del key and a larger backspace key though.
