Can anyone recommend a good mechanical keyboard that lights up?

I'm looking for a mechanical keyboard that has a light up keyboard. I want one that's affordable and reliable. Also, I need one in which the keys won't fade away after a year or two.

Thanks

I'm guessing you don't care about the switches?

You like it or you don't, but i hate people saying it's 'an acquired taste." That's just a cop out. - bookwormbabe29 on beer.

Corsair K70 is a great choice as well. A few months ago I got one with blue switches, and I'm loving it.

@mgsfreak1688

Okay, do more research before you buy. There are switches, each different one feels different when you type. You need to first figure out which ones feel best to you.

K70 if you just don't need extra keys. K95 if you want those extra keys for MMORPG. They are available in different colours so just pick the colour you like.

I would recommend Ducky Shine 3 with the switch of your choice.
