Midnight gaming has finally become a little easier. Both products we tested tonight properly demonstrate their advertised uses, and meet the requirements we set out.
As previously mentioned, the Zippy EL-610 is tiny and unsuitable for anyone with large fingers or who are visually impaired. Another one of the EL-610's noticeable faults is its keys weak responses. The sole uses I see for this product are: as a mobile external keyboard for a laptop or small form factor computer, or for someone who really needs a helpful light at night whilst typing. Although the EL-610 has a brighter backlight than the eluminX, we do not understand the need for such a strong illumination.
On the other hand, we have Auravision's eluminX - a sleek and beautifully crafted keyboard. It makes a perfect desktop keyboard replacement, and includes the benefit of a strong backlight and very responsive keys; perfect for gaming during the night or day.
The EL-610 runs for around $35 USD while the eluminX will set you back a hefty, but worthwhile, $69 USD. While the price for the EL-610 is considerably lower than that of the eluminX, it is still a hefty cost for a standard keyboard. Auravision's set price of their eluminX isn't exactly a small setback either, but it is definitely passable and will more than pay off in the long run; a true 24/7 keyboard for all purposes.
