Ligisys KB801BK; don't set your expectations too high. 03/25/2005
I purchased this keyboard because I needed a mini-keyboard and wanted one that was illuminated for work at night. I chose this particular keyboard for it's width because I also have a trackball in the keyboard drawer on the desk where this keyboard was placed and room is at a premium.
Most of the keys are full sized which is also a plus. I do like the LEDs, as opposed to EL lighting becuase the space beside the keys is not as bright as the keys themselves (except if you are at an angle where you can see the LEDs between the keys). The LEDs are bright and they are not all the same brightness but I don't find that to be a problem. While I wouldn't consider it the perfect keyboard it does the things I need it to do and it didn't cost as much as other models. I have considered purchasing a second one for a different computer.
Of the things that I dislike about it, none are showstoppers but you should consider them before making your purchase. As you might expect, the high-gloss finish shows fingerprints. The LEDs above the keypad are green, not blue. The keypad doesn't light up with the rest of the keys. It's supposed to flash when your cell phone rings. I have not experienced that even with the phone sitting on top of the keys but it does flash whenever my wife shuts off her hair dryer plus at other random times. And lastly, I miss the volume control buttons that my other keyboard had (personal preference).
