Backlit Keyboard Tech Feedback Request

Backlit Keyboard Feedback

I'm in the market for a new WIRED keyboard, and I'm considering a backlit (AKA illuminated) keyboard. I've never seen one. Note: there is IMO at least two subsets of wired keyboards, (1) standard, & (2) gaming type; I'm interested only in the standard type.

Also some models give you a choice of different color illuminations--clueless as to whether that could ever be handy to have.

I've done the usual uTube stuff. Is anyone using one? I'd be particularly interested in the negatives/annoyances that you've found in using one. I must admit that part of my interest in one is whether ot wou;d redice tje typos.

I used to use one of those wired mini keyboards (No number pad) that had illuminated keys. They were a kinda soft blue, in colour.

I found it damned useful and I was sad when it died. Can't remember what killed it, sadly. I can only vaguely touch-type and one wrong hit results in a whole string of them. :( So, I have to glance at the keys, during typing. As I prefer to sit in subdued light, that keyboard was a godsend. If I ever find another one, I'd certainly get one, if it wasn't too expensive. I think the last one cost me a fiver. A4 Tech, if memory serves.

I love backlit keyboards. Like Katzy, I was sad when my last one died. I must invest in another one day. Sooooooo convenient!
