While there really isn't anything too impressive with this keyboard it still deserves some time in the lime-light. The keyboard isn't a full-sized unit and the 89-key layout lacks a number pad, but it is not meant to be a full keyboard replacement. I'm sure that you won't want to give up your Saitek Eclipse II keyboard for this one, but if you do - well done.
It's impressive to see how thin and transparent this keyboard is. It's a very unique look that is has the main electronics and controller located on the left side. This left side also features a "Caps Lock" LED that we'll see on the next page as we take a closer look at this unit.
