I read on another Forum that the Power required for the LED Lighting overloads the ability of the USB to provide the required Power. Is that True? There really are a lot of LEDs on the Keyboard.

Since we do not drive the LEDs at full power the current level stays below the USB limit, therefore this shouldn't be a problem for full power ports (note that there are certain cases where some laptops have USB ports that only put out 100mA - it will not work on these type of ports; this is a rare issue).

Wow, that was fast. Thanks for the info. I am a DeskTop person. I am just so sick and tired of keys rubbing off. I have 2 fairly expensive keyboards with no lettering (Logictech G15 and a Enermax).. They're pretty but the paint rubs off. I had to put clear scotch tape on the Enermax to try and stop the wearing.

Your Deck looks to be just what I need.
