Deck LED-Backlit Keyboard

ThinkGeek Gadgets

Adjustable illumination!

Take a nice long look at the only LED backlit keyboard with every character on every key individually lit, not just the frame and gaps in between. Deck's lights are rated at 200,000 hours of life. That's pushing 22 years if the Deck is never turned off. The LEDs can be easily adjusted to one of seven brightness levels to reach the desired level of illumination.

This thing looks great and is built to last. Deck keyboards are constructed with 50-million cycle switches and gold cross point key switches. (Putting it into perspective, the keyboard you are using right now is most likely using 1 million cycle switches and no gold). It is built to operate smoothly in environments from minus 40°C to plus 70°C. So you're safe in both Antarctica and Death Valley. You never know, you know?

Available in four colors, Fire (red), Ice (blue), ToXic (green), and Gold (yellow). See additional images to check 'em out!
