I've never considered it before. However, my keyboard is quite shaded from the screen by the upper shelf, unless i drag it right to the edge, then I cant rest my wrists. The room light is behind me so again the keys are shaded (by my chunky self). I'd consider one of these, though i'm a bit of a tight wad so I think about £15-£20 is probably my limit.
but I won't be tempted by the illuminated one. I have been using one of these click here for the past 18 months or so, and it's far and away the best keyboard I've ever laid my hands on. It looks beautiful, works perfectly, and each charge lasts around a month. I'll change when I find anything better, but I have seen nothing that comes close so far.
FE - I meant thank you for stopping me! Deep down, I knew I was just being seduced by window dressing. The fact that it was as black as your hat here when I read the thread may have had something to do with it - I refused to put the light on at 1.30 and was peering at the keys.
Your keyboard looks lovely, but I couldn't justify the price, despite trying hard the first time you showed it to us.
