    Azio Levetron L70 LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard - just bought one. The brightness is a little dim, and letters are not too bright, but adequate.

    The main issue is that the keyboard is full of lights, with indicator lights, but there are no indicator lights for the numlock and caps lock.

    UPDATE: Just contacted Azio customer service and the lights were simply malfunctioning. I am exchanging the keyboard for a functional one. B'H.

                I recommend Marvo k400 gaming keyboard plus you can get 3 in 1 pack with keyboard mouse and mouse pad. For pretty cheap.

The matte finish feels so good to the fingers and the wrist rest is amazing! The volume nob is super helpful. Comes with a number pad and function keys. Would definitely recommend.
