Can anyone recommend an illuminated keyboard?

Saitek Eclipse.

Now this was a great suggestion! I really like the Saitek Eclipse I and II but I couldn't find any of them new. I don't want a used one from some neckbeard that Cheeto fingered them all up though.

However I found the newer version; the Mad Catz V.5 Keyboard:

This is my new front runner. Does anyone have anything negative to say about it?

I don't like mechanical keyboards because I don't like the clicky sound.

There's multiple types - some of which actually make less noise than rubber dome keyboards as they don't click at all and with O-rings you won't even get the "bottoming out" sound of the plastic key impacting the plastic keyboard frame.
I will attest that my rubber dome Logitech G15 (first gen) keyboard was loud as hell.

In a shocking turn of events I ended up going with the Logitech G105. I'm typing on it now and it's pretty sweet. I read some reviews about the Mad Catz V.5 and there were too many complaints of the characters on the keys wearing off and that the keys squeaked after a while. Those are deal breakers in my book.

I apologize for taking so long to make my decision and post it. I just hope nobody lost too much sleep dealing with the agony of not know what keyboard I would choose. Well rest easy now my friends and thank you for your suggestions.
