Windows 7: Suggestions for keyboard with backlights

Suggestions for keyboard with backlights

Hi all,

I have a Logitech G110 keyboard, and while it is backlit the colours are limited to several "dark" hues (dark blue, purple, red). Plus I don't use that column of programmable keys on the lefthand side so it's kinda overkill - and the extra width makes things in my sniper's perch quite cramped so I'd like to get a more regular sized keyboard.

Can't find many alternatives though. While I like the looks of the Tron Razer keyboard - the lights are much brighter - it seems to only light up in that light blue colour. Can anyone suggest another keyboard with backlit keys? Main thing I'm looking for is how bright the lighting is.

There are tons of keyboard out there. Me my self are using a razer lycosa. Everything comes down to persoanl pereference. Do you want a mechanical keyboard if so what kind of switches. My recommendation is to go to an actual store and ask them for a look at theyr stock and maybe even get a feel of how the buttons work and how they sound.
