    Any ideas on a good reliable fully backlit gaming keyboard

    Hey guys im looking for a new keyboard. I curently have a cheap £20 one and looking for a durable and sturdy Keyboard/Gaming keyboard. Im looking to spend up to around £60. It does have to look aesthetically great and so im looking for a keyboard which is fully backlit in BLUE (keys and behind the keys) like the keyboard in this video : youtube.com/wat…xWY

    Thanks for your help!

    Can pick colour on the strike 3, any shade of blue as long as you have patience to narrow it down!

    I think you'll struggle to find what you're after. Features like backlighting and gaming design are subject to fashion and I wouldn't be surprised if manufacturers are operating on the assumption that what looks good now will look garish and vulgar five years down the line and designing hardware to match that assumption (it's not very eco friendly or good business sense to design stuff for durability if 95% of buyers will buy something new it in five years).

    You best bet is probably to see if you can get someone to sell you a second hand Deck keyboard, they were at it before it became fashionable so they should be better built that most. They never had much of a UK presence though, and I don't remember whether the backlighting went between the keys, so it may not be much of an option.
