Excellent Product - Yes, There is an OFF button!
on August 19, 2012
Excellent keyboard - Seems incredibly sturdy and the backlight works well with the large print. Nice to have a choice of red, blue, or purple. This is the ONLY keyboard I have seen (in this price range) that has a FULL SIZE backspace key. If you've ever tried using the one with the half size it can be annoying, especially when they place another key beside it which is typical.
**IMPORTANT NOTE - "Off" Button
The instructions are scant - not a big deal - but I've had this for several weeks and FINALLY just now figured out how to turn this thing off. It's the SAME BUTTON you use to switch LED colors - only you hold it down for about 3 seconds. I looked for this in the instructions and could not find it - although LEDs are long-life bulbs - I use my computer only a couple of hours a day, so I worried having it on for 22 extra hours per day would severely decrease the functional life of the keyboard. Problem solved - hold the color change button down until it turns off - same button turns it back on.
Finally - there are four rubber feet towards the front of the keyboard that do an awesome job of keeping it in place. The back has two small feet that you can flip up to raise the back of the keyboard. The palm rest that sits in front of the keyboard is not intended for removal - with some effort it might be removed (can't tell if it just snaps on or not) but it is a molded piece of plastic that runs around the entire top edge of the keyboard - if you removed it you would also be removing the part of the cover that encloses the media/shortcut keys at the very top of the keyboard - the row with the function keys (F1, F2 etc) would not be affected.
Overall a fantastic keyboard for the price - highly recommended!
