hey, took some more pictures of my keyboard, still trying to get a good one. It looks kind of silly if you use it on the same machine with the board, I have it set on my laptop instead.
there are two versions, one with the lights all the way down, and one with the lights all the way up. (the dim one is better, IMO)

In retrospect, I think my 1980's IBM old-school keyboard has a better feel, but I am very happy with my purchase overall (saving up to buy the full-size *someday* for use at home). the IBM makes a nice "ka-chink" when it's pressed and released, while the deck has a more linear feel (and is much quieter), like a commodore keyboard. but, the deck is USB, which means it only works on newer computers, and the IBM is either AT or PS2 (depending on which cord you use), which means it won't work on my laptop, which has neither. but the deck looks _so_ cool.
By far, the best feature is having the plug light up. If you've ever tried to fumble around in the dark behind your case to get something plugged in, this will take care of it. wonderful blue light makes everything easy!
also, in the pictures, the color looks washed-out. in reality, it is a much richer, deeper, blue (and green)
