Saitek Announces Eclipse III Gaming Keyboard

When it comes to PC gaming, your peripherals can be just as important as the components inside your case. I’ve actually been using the Saitek Eclipse keyboards (the original, and II version since it came out), and they’re great. So naturally, I was excited to hear that they have announced a third version of their popular keyboard.

So what sort of features are we looking at for this new model? The color-changeable backlit keys are back, along with a two-stage height adjustment and removable wrist rest. This time around they’ve added in a touch-sensitive control panel, which sounds awesome. If it’s anything like the touch-sensitive controls I had on my old HP laptop, it’s definitely going to be a nice addition. They’ve also added in pass through headphone and mic ports, which will make things easier on gamers without such ports on the front of their cases. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability, but we’ll let you know when we find out.
