Excerpt from review: "...Unlike the Tarantula, Lycosa is fully backlit, although the brightness of the backlighting could be a bit more intense and the stencils in the keys (which allow light through) could be a bit bigger. In the dark they seem a bit 'muddled' to get the maximum effect from. The light button in the TouchPanel has three settings. The first is off while the second setting lights up the WASD keys. The third lights up the whole keyboard. We did like the idea of the second setting, but in actual usage we found we just left it at the third setting mostly, so I don't know how much use you will actually get out of that..."
