I am thinking about picking this up today. It's on sale. What are the opinions of users here?

Nevermind. I've changed my mind. I'll probably get the Logitech illuminated keyboard instead.

I bought one from someone here for $35. For that price, I quite like it. It feels different than my old kb, but that's not a bad thing. I wish it had other backlight colors, but the red is not obtrusive at all. This is a decent board overall, but nothing spectacular. Definitely worth $35, but not much more than that.

The red lighting was one thing I liked about it, thought it would match my rig pretty good. Seems most illuminated keyboards have blue light. The Logitech kb has received really good reviews, whereas that MS one was kind of hit and miss.
