5.0 out of 5 stars Why Pay More!, 26 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perixx PX-1000 UK, Backlit Gaming Keyboard - USB - Red/Blue/Purple Illuminated Keys - Full Size Layout - Windows & Desktop Lock Keys - 40s/60s/80s Fast Input Selection - Piano Black -UK Layout (Accessory)
OK, first of let me tell you about the good points of this gaming style keyboard by Perixx:

THE GOOD
1. The price is unbelievable for a light up keyboard (EDIT it was 17 quid at the time).
2. 3 levels of red (EDIT the only colour choice at the time) back-lit illumination.
3. The keys are nice and responsive, and not to noisy.
4. Full-size keyboard with UK layout and a few useful hotkeys.

THE BAD
1. When the illumination is off the characters are very faint and hard to make out.
2. The illuminated characters are only fully visible when viewed directly from above.
3. The Perixx logo doesn't light up.

To sum up, this is an excellent gaming keyboard for those on a budget. The images used are somewhat misleading, like the logo not being illuminated and the num lock, caps lock and scroll lock indicators being a little different than pictured, but otherwise this is a solid purchase.

***UPDATE***
The keyboard is still going strong, and when I first got it, this was the cheapest back-lit keyboard on Amazon... but now there are cheaper ones than this since Perixx up-ed the price.
