    What a bargain! But that UK layout... 🤢🤮

    Been looking for a backlit keyboard. Can the colour of this be set to one colour, eg. white, and just leave it at that?

    Also, is there a quick way to turn off the lights for when you're going to bed or whatever?

    Not into gaming, just sometimes work a bit late and too lazy to get up and turn on the light! 🙄

    Yes to both questions.

    No and yes I think

    Unless this is a different model to the one that I have (and it looks the same to me) you can set it one colour only.

    Edit: My model number is in fact different but I only have the keyboard. I'm not sure if this keyboard+mouse is the same keyboard as mine but it certainly looks the same.

    Double-Edit: This video states the same model number as on Amazon and switches to one colour mode.

    Thanks OP - 18 minutes into the week and I've already bought something I don't particularly need or want....

    Delivered today, tidy bit of kit for the price. Impressive delivery time as I ordered on Monday without Prime.

    I didn't really need this, so I ordered it anyway! :D Be grand for back up at that price.

    Thanks OP!

    Having used it for a few days;

    Although it has the "big return key" from the UK layout, the symbols on the keys are US :)

    All in all great value for a play with a mechanical keyboard

    The big return key is not a problem with UK keyboards, it's the tiny left Shift key, that's the problem.

    I bought this also to replace my Corsair mechanical keyboard, which has developed key chatter on a few keys, e.g. the letters C, K and L intermittently type double. Definitely great value for a mechanical keyboard.

    The keys are much noisier than the Corsair due to the tactile feedback switches (Corsair had Cherry Red keys) and it's not possible to type quietly. This doesn't bother me, but can imagine this being an issue typing in the same room as someone else resting or watching TV.

    While there are various lighting pattern cycles, the key colours are fixed as shown in the listing. Basically, there is no option to change the keys to a single colour. However, you can turn them off by holding down FN+Down until they fade out. Unlike the video linked above, FN+F9 has a musical note symbol and launches the default music player (e.g. Windows Groove Music). There is no wrist rest either.

    The keys show both the American and UK symbols, however, only the US layout symbols light up. E.g. the '3' key has a lit '#'. The '£' is not visible in the dark.
