Hi, im buying a saitek black wired eclipse keyboard wi a reb backlight from newegg. It says that it is a slim keyboard, and i just want to know if anybody who has this keyboard can tell me what the difference is between slim and standard.

I have it.

It's not great. It looks cool, it gets the job done.
It's not the best keyboard on the planet.

I wouldn't buy it again....

I kept reading things about the paint coming off of the keys...

That alone kept me from buying it.

I have two G15's and they own.

Highly programmable for any application on the LCD screen and the lighting is perfect!
