Keyboard Lighting

The lighting for the keyboard is controlled via a combination of the Fn key and the first F keys. With each key cycling through a few positions of red, green or blue you can mix them to get whichever shade you like. They're all represented well and, although the lighting isn't as consistent as we might like on the subtler shades, you're unlikely to be disappointed.

Without direct LED lighting the keyboard doesn't shine as brightly as many we've looked at, and there appears to be a slight issue with the lighting beneath the C key on our review sample. With yellow it looks green and, as you can see above, with the purple it's blue-er than the rest. From the side the lighting is disappointingly dull, although it's still bright enough from your typing position.

Nice find guys and great write up Bryan, while I've been in the market for a new setup for quite some time I've bitten the bullet already and gone Mech just waiting for UK stock to come in and I'll be a happy camper.

The CM Keyboard is pretty slick for a membrane TBH, not to sure on the mouse though.Quote

Too much. Around £50 IIRC. For that you can get a proper mech board and mouse. Sure you lose all of the lights and so on but it doesn't matter. I still have a membrane board on one of my PCs and it's like sticking my fingers in a pot of mushy peas.Quote
