FAQS

Why use an LED keyboard?

A backlighted keyboard is great for low light conditions where you’ll be able to type freely without needing a huge amount of artificial light. It makes it great for typing after dark and it’s great for gamers who are able to quickly identify keys.

What is better: wired or wireless?

There is always a temptation to go wireless but often it doesn’t make sense. Unless you need to freely move your keyboard around it is better to have a wired option. This will mean no battery issues and a quicker response time.

What’s the difference between RGB, LED and backlit keyboards?

An LED keyboard and a backlit keyboard are the same thing as all backlit keyboards will be powered by LED. An RGB keyboard is slightly different as this is an LED keyboard but one where you can generate custom colors for a lot more individuality.
