Curse you Scythe, for a second I thought it had Cherry clears.

As it is, it seems to be nothing more than a plain old keyboard with backlighting?

I like the layout, since i use arrow keys for games. I hate keyboards that have that section crammed together... Also for the price of $32, it's really affordable. Hell, even i might think about it. I just wonder what kind of multimedia keys are available. I need them badly.

Looks like a plain rubber dome keyboard. Actually this looks like the OCZ Alchemy Elixer Keyboard i used to use, it has similar key caps which where not the greatest to type on.
