Default Keyboard Stickers (Glow in the dark) - 02-23-2010, 06:49 AM

Hi all, I have been wanting to illuminate my dell mini 10v's keyboard and do not like the usb lights. I have found several sites that do glow-in-the-dark stickers and some that do flourescent ones also.

Has anyone here used said stickers?

MyGlowKeys
FunKeyBoards
LatKey

And lastly one of the sites can make custom orders, I forget which one. Would anyone be interested in a bulk custom order OSX keyboard layout set, if it is reasonable?

If any of this is posted wrongly, please do not delete I will edit it out.

I just got the MyGlowKeys ones a few days ago. At first I was somewhat annoyed by the feeling of the sticker on the keys, because 1. the sticker is sleek and has a more slippery feeling and 2. you can feel where the sticker starts on the key. They're also glossy, so they contrast with the flat black keys and don't look that appealing.

However, I'm used to the feel now. I think the function is worth the sacrifice in looks and feel. It's definitely easier to see the keys in the dark now, not to the extent like LED lights of course, but a noticeable improvement.

If you use the mini in the dark even a little bit, I would recommend it.

Yes, please add a review to here. I am going to buy a few sets from each and add them to my numerous keyboards and do a review of each of them.
