Would this be a good keyboard for someone that uses a keyboard at night but doesn't game?

The person that I'm considering buying it for just needs her keyboard lit at nights so she can see without turning on the lights. She doesn't need colored lights...just white.

I can get this one for 84.00 with my 30% off code but wondered if there are better options out there as she certainly isn't a gamer.

Thanks.

Mechanical keyboards are higher end and have a much better tactile feel to them with the mechanical switches then membrane based keyboards which is why the are so much more expensive. As to whether it is a good fit or not, that depends on what type of keyboard she is used to.

Any lighted keyboard will get the job done if she is currently using a standard fair membrane keyboard. They are cheap stuff and can be had for under $30. Mechanical keyboards will go for upwards of $100 depending on the type of mechanical switches used and the options. They are more for gamers, but a lot of computer people like myself use them as well since we like the feel a lot better and we tend to be more picky.

Thanks so much. That just may do the trick plus the price and reviews seem very good.

Thanks. Just looking at the Logitech G610 made me want one too. The person needing the lighted keyboard is using just your basic keyboard that comes with desktops...nothing special. I think the more expensive one would be very nice but I may just look at the one listed above at Walmart/Amazon.

Thanks again for explaining.
