I’ve always wanted a backlit keyboard but never got around to getting one until now. Very easy to setup, just plug the braided cord that came with it into your computer. A card was enclosed with the keyboard that shows you how to change the colors/breathing. You can have one color or a rainbow of colors, or even dim all the lights completely, lots of options to choose from.

Review: Elizabeth Mae Miranda
For an under $20 backlit keyboard that tries to market to gamers, I personally think it’s quite good. Obviously it’s no K95 Corsair and that’s the point. It’s a very low budget option for people that want a backlit keyboard.
I wish there was an option to give 4.99 stars because my only request is pretty silly but might improve the looks: the Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock indicator led lights should match the color choice of the rest of the backlit keys. Right now they only stay as blue, no matter what color you choose for the backlight.
3. Azio Levetron L70 LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard
The AZiO L70 gaming keyboard comes with the right features to enhance your gaming experience. Blue backlight to increase keyboard visibility in dark environments, Multi-Key Rollover to ensure multiple keys register correctly when gaming, and a volume knob for quick volume adjustment.
Review: Nicholas C.
This keyboard does it all for me. It looks really cool first off. I use this in an office setting and I really like it. It looks cool but subtle. The key rebound is average but nothing that hampers normal typing. It is nice and quiet for the most part, which is nice. The wrist rest is a great feature for those of us who have to type a lot. I just got the keyboard so I cannot attest to its durability, but everything works right out of the box.
4. Rii RM400 104 Key LED Backlit Gaming Mouse and Keyboard
This Rii RM400 rainbow backlit gaming keyboard and mouse combo, comes fully prepared for all your gaming and everyday needs! With a 3 preset level gaming mouse that has 3 different DPI functions 1000, 1600 and 2000 DPI so you can adjust and easily scroll or find that head you we’re hunting!
The wired keyboard comes with mechanical switch feeling key’s and a 7 color rainbow back light to help you play at night. It’s plug and play so it’s compatible with almost every device you can think of, as long as your device has a USB port or a USB convertor.
5. Azio Vision Backlit USB Keyboard
The AZiO Vision keyboard features extra large print keys to reduce eyestrain and promote productivity. To further promote visibility, this keyboard features 5 backlight colors including Red, Pink, Blue, Cyan, and Chartreuse. The backlight brightness is easily adjustable by simply turning the brightness wheel.
Productivity is further simplified with dedicated internet and multimedia hotkeys. Enhanced visibility, colorful backlights and built-in hotkeys, the Vision keyboard is a keyboard people of all ages will love. To Troubleshoot: 1. Unplug the USB Transceiver. 2. On the keyboard, press and hold L.SHIFT and ESC. The Blue LEDs should start flashing. 3. Insert the USB Transceiver into the computer.
Excellent keyboard – Seems incredibly sturdy and the backlight works well with the large print. Nice to have a choice of red, blue, or purple. This is the ONLY keyboard I have seen (in this price range) that has a FULL SIZE backspace key. If you’ve ever tried using the one with the half size it can be annoying, especially when they place another key beside it which is typical.
6. Arteck HB030B Portable Wireless Bluetooth Backlit Keyboard
Elegant blue LED backlight with 2 adjustable brightness level, 7 different colors(deep blue, soft blue, bright green, soft green, red, purple, cyan) making typing that much more enjoyable and awesome to look at. Backlight will auto turn off when idle to conserve power for when it is most needed.

Any Bluetooth supported devices such as tablet, smartphone can easily paired and gain quick access to common functions, such as volume level, playback control, copy paste text, and more.
I’m a designer who uses a Wacom Cintiq pen display. I always struggled with where to put my keyboard so I could access it for quick keys and shortcuts in programs like Photoshop or Sketchbook Pro. This keyboard fits perfectly in-between the stand legs and is so easy to access while drawing now.

This a great little keyboard. I love traveling with it because it is small and light. I have it connected to my iPhone 6 Plus, iPad and my work computer and it is great. I like that I can switch from working on my work laptop to my iphone or ipad to send an imessage or email to family.
It has a great battery life. The only thing that I would like different is where the on-off switch is located. For some reason, it is very easy to on the keyboard while it is in my backpack or shoulder bag.
8. Logitech Illuminated Ultrathin Keyboard K740
Whether you’re typing a late night email or hitting the project list before dawn, K740 keyboard has you covered. Bright illuminated keys and an ultra-comfortable design make typing fluid, quiet and easy around the clock.
Review: Warren H. Chang, Jr.
A straightforward, elegantly-designed, rectangular and wired keyboard with backlit keys so you can see what the computer buttons are that you want to depress when you’re typing in a darkened room. I decided I wanted a wired keyboard — since wireless keyboards are more fragile in comparison, and, wireless keyboards that have backlit keys will drain their rechargeable or removable batteries much too quickly.
Thus, I settled for a wired one that’s, “low maintenance.” And if you’re looking for a keyboard with multiple colors and wild housing designs to appeal to the eyes and minds of gamers from ages 10 to 17, this isn’t the keyboard for you.
9. Azio Large Print Tri-Color Backlit Wired Keyboard
The KB505U backlight provides a great solution for those who need that extra help seeing the keyboard in low light. The large print makes the letters easily identifiable and the keyboard backlight can also be cycled through 3 different colors to fit your mood or preference. Shortcut keys make it a breeze to navigate your favorite programs.
AZIO’s KB505U is a great way to spruce up your home or office while adding much-needed functionality and readability. To troubleshoot : 1. Unplug the USB Transceiver. 2. On the keyboard, press and hold L.SHIFT and ESC. The Blue LEDs should start flashing. 3. Insert the USB Transceiver into the computer.
Excellent keyboard – Seems incredibly sturdy and the backlight works well with the large print. Nice to have a choice of red, blue, or purple.

10. Logitech K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard

Review: W. Oliver
I have a love/hate relationship with this keyboard. I love the way the keys feel, that it’s quiet, that it has backlit capability, that it’s wireless.
What I hate about the keyboard is that it is unrepairable. I own 3 of these keyboards. Two I use at home and I’d bought a third to use in the office.
About 6 months ago I started having problems with the spacebar sticking on one of the keyboards. Then other keys began to stick or would not depress down and make contact. I tried vacuuming the keyboard and used compressed air to make sure there was nothing under the keys.
