The Saitek Eclipse III keyboard is one of the best keyboards I have ever owned. The keyboard features a touch panel at the top of they keyboard which controls the volume, backlit colors, media player, and the brightness of the keyboard. The keyboard also features two-stage height adjustment and a removable wrist rest for personal comfort. The keyboard also features a headphone or speaker port and microphone port for convenience and ease of use. There are also Windows shortcut keys on the left and right sides of the keyboard which open some commong windows programs such as Windows Media player and the calculator. Another distinguishable feature is that the keys are very quiet and are laser etched so they will not wear over time. The keyboard is USB plug and play but it does require some drivers for the touch panel and shortcut keys to work correctly.
Overall I rate this keyboard a 4/5 for its ease of use and beauty.
