If there is one thing that the Acrylux is, it's shiny. Piano Black has never been more ably demonstrated, so forgive any appearances of arms and things in the shots, because it's like attempting to take a photo of a mirror.

Straight away you can see that the Acrylux is a keyboard pure and simple. No screens, swathes of macro keys or scroll wheels here.

Whilst it isn't lacking any keys like some of the scissor-type keyboards, it is a little compressed around the cursor area. Thankfully we have full-size enter and backspace keys so there isn't an undue level of adjustment for those who touch-type.

Below the keys is a deep orange backing that makes a lovely change from the more universal black we see.

The design really is a great bit of thinking. Rather than bolting some USB ports on wherever possible, Enermax have integrated them into the 'stand' at the back of the keyboard, Very sleek indeed.

One of the most surprising things when plugging the Acrylux is that the only thing that lights, besides the standard 'lock' keys, is the Enermax logo in the top left. We were very much expecting the orange back-plane behind the keys to light too and we're disappointed it didn't.

Despite the obvious problems in photographing something that is this phenomenally shiny, the Acrylux is a visual stunner.

This is one of the few keyboards I would part from my beloved 3 year old £2.50 HP one for that I got from a charity shop and went back to using even though I had a Steelseries Shift.Quote

Thanks for the review, nice KB.

If you like full size KB with the laptop feel and the nice piano black then a good alternative is the Fujitsu KB Slim MF which has a nice blue led (to bad keys dont have led)


I'v been using this KB for over a year now and use it at home and at the office and it stays nice, just wipe it once a week and it looks like new.Quote
