Nice keyboard and it's features, but does this keyboard has a led illumination? so you can see the keys in the darkness...

Keytronic had the different pressure levels 15 years ago, so hardly a new feature.
Can't say I'm keen on the look of these keyboards either and the ones on display at Computex didn't impress in terms of quality, but things might've changed since then.

And yes, the keys are backlit

Oh and - Aivia, an integrated acronymic word, is derived from its key features – advanced, intuitive, and versatile interface archetype. :rolleyes:

Gamers can press up to 20 simultaneous buttons without the “ghosting” effect.
I guess that would require your hands and your feet.... :laugh:

Or pressing two keys per digit on hand :laugh:
I actually strafe+peek+crouch+run+forward+scope with a shift so yeah I press a few keys at once with a single finger ^^ This is actually the most important feature of a keyboard for me.

Looking forward to this keyboard if the price is reasonable enough.
