PRODUCT PICTORIAL & FEATURES
This particular keyboard retails for about US$99 plus shipping. Check
out there list of online retailers HERE.
Some people may think that this is a little steep for a keyboard. But,
with the amount of EL technology included, the price is quite reasonable.
The product box contains the actual keyboard and a installation manual.
While pulling the keyboard out of its box, I noted that the keyboard had
a little bit of heft to it and it was quite rigid.
Before I received the product, I was thinking that the keys on the key
board would be made out of a one piece membrane of soft plastic. But as
you see above, I was surprised to see that each key was separate and not
connected in any way.
Being a slim keyboard, the direct competitors of Eluminx didn't include
a numeric keypad and for what reason, I have no clue. I was glad that
Eluminx kept this feature because when I'm setting up my gaming controls,
I like having the numeric keypad for programming in-game functions and
special features. The three inches doesn't make a whole lot of difference.
Above the keypad you can see the standard Caps, Num and Scroll Lock indicator
