Keysonic Illuminated Keyboard ACK-5000HL
Keysonic have a good range of input devices to choose from: from the smart to the shape able. When I was asked to look at the Keysonic Illumiated Keyboard I thought this was a perfect chance to see what they offered.
After reviewing the excellent Saitek Eclipse II and generally being pretty keen on backlit keyboards I wanted to see how the Keysonic matched up.
Still, I was a little disappointed with the "for XP" logo on the front...I would damn-well hope it supported XP as its successor has been out for some time and XP itself is almost 6 years old!
Inside the packaging is sufficient for a keyboard, they dont usually need too much molly-coddling on their way to you.
Keyboards don't usually have much in the box with them and the Keysonic is no exception. With a CD for drivers if you don't have a net connection (how are you reading this review then, ey?? - Ed) and a quick manual to show you what to plug in where the only thing I thought was lacking was perhaps a wrist rest.
