2 out of 5 eggsLights work....

Pros: Both Blue and Orange LED lighting methods work just fine,All the buttons work, Number Pad and Left side of keyboard are like most keyboards.

Cons: All the buttons are incredibly crowded, response on the keys is somewhat decent at best, Key placement is irregular on the middle-right of the keyboard, don't get it if you're used to regular keyboards, Only get if you need to type at night and can spare some patience for mashing in the keys just to make it type properly.

Other Thoughts: 4/10 would return but I only need it for night time typing and I'm too cheap to get a decent keyboard.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent enough

Pros: Evenly lit LED's. Looks good in the dark or in the light. Keys feel nice to press. Isn't extremely light/cheap feeling. Hot keys work with Windows 8.1 with no issues.

Cons: Ok, I consider this a good keyboard for most people. But for me.... I find myself wanting to bash it into the wall because of the compact key layout. Its frustrating hitting the home key when you want to backspace. Or hitting end when you need arrow over to the right. Or hitting \ when you meant ALT. hitting PG down instead of enter.

Granted this is not a legit con as I could clearly see the pictures before buying. I am just calling it a con because of how much it frustrates me that I keep missing keys lol...

Other Thoughts: the fact that it has LED's and is overall a decent product doesn't negate the fact that I wish I had gotten something a little more familiar feeling. Im not going to return on it on the basis that I have buyers remorse though. I'll get used to it.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, functional, as advertised

Pros: Large print, two colors of backlight from a more subtle glowing blue to higher contrast orange. Relatively solid tactile feel to the keys.

Cons: Not really cons just minor points of contention: the keys do feel different as another reviewer pointed out, but not necessarily in a bad way. I'm just used to thinkpad keyboards which are the best imho. The keys do give a decent but not overly loud click and feedback but the action is smooth. Also, the light button switches from blue to orange with one click, but to turn off the backlight entirely you must hold it down for a few seconds, just a minor quirk nothing to dock an egg off for.

Other Thoughts: As long as it turns out to be durable this is a good solution for nighttime cybersurfers or gamers who want a basic easy to use backlit keyboard that wont break the bank.

5 out of 5 eggsgood idea

Pros: bright backlit keys, orange light has good contrast that makes the keys easy to read. slightly bigger than a laptop keyboard (with 10-key), plug and play

Cons: it doesn't do dishes

Other Thoughts: i bought this for my fiance, who has macular degeneration from diabetes. her low-light vision is horrible, and she had to use a big desk lamp to type. I set this up for her using the orange LED setting, and she can easily type in pitch blackness. excellent product for those with bad eyes!

4 out of 5 eggsLarge print LED Keyboard

Pros: The keyboard is fine, it is especially nice for use in a darkened room. The large print is great for older eyes like mine. We got it because our new laptop doesn't have an iluminated keyboard.

Cons: The only con I can think of is that keys feel as if they are from an older generation, that is, while they have a tatical feel that you have typed a letter, the keys seem to have more travel than most keyboards nowdays.
