PRODUCT PICTORIAL & FEATURES (cont'd)
Observing the slim design, some of the keys like the Control, Alt and
Windows keys were reduced. The laser printed lettering on the key caps
is a little bigger than on your standard key board to allow the user to
see the key labeling when the illumination is operating.
The keys are a little more flush to the keyboard surface and have the
look, feel and sound of a laptop. Key pressing was crisp and precise with
no sponge feel.
Following it's thin label, the keyboard measures in at a maximum thickness
of 7/8". Now that is pretty thin seeing that is has a considerable
amount of electronics inside.
The back of the keyboard is pretty well flush to keep the profile low.
But there is one thing that I need to point out.
As you can see, there is no way you can adjust the keyboard angle for
comfort. Thin or standard design, I would like this keyboard to have some
way to adjust its angle. This could easily be incorporated into the next
design or version and would add a little more value to the board. This
is a premium board with a premium price. It should contain all the bells
*Editor's Addition* I was told by Eluminx that anyone buying this
board will receive rubber feet for height adjustment. The new revision
will include built in height adjustment.
Ok, at about this time I bet you are tapping your toe and looking at
your watch anticipating when I am actually going to bring the main defining
feature, the illumination, to this review. Well, wait no more.
