Safisha: Retro Mechanical Keyboard Edishen

8BitDo have launched a retro NES-themed mechanical keyboard, the The 87-key board retails at USD 100 kule amazon and the best part is the absence of LED backlighting. This keyboard is retro-tech pron in its full glory.


Mkuu how is not having LED back lighting a good thing?

I find it distracting and borderline annoying. The brightness from monitors is enough, I have a LED monitor rated for 500nits and even at medium brightness I can still use the keyboard in the dark.

For me it is the opposite. I have two laptops, one with backlight and the other without. Issa struggle using the one without backlight especially in low light conditions.m
