You can buy ambient light kits from various places (eBay, Ikea), they're usually just LED strips in an acrylic tube that sticks to the back of the TV/monitor/furniture via little sticky pads like the ones that stick the Wii sensor on the TV (if you have a Wii). I have some on my TV for bias lighting but they're fun as a mood-enhancer too. Just google 'ambient lighting kit home tv' or something along those lines.
Really you should try it. Don't "waste" your money on the ultimate edition. The normal one for $80 is great. It is fun to type and game. Heavy as hell though.
After this I know I am going to be sticking with mechanical keys for life. I was over at my Grandparents house over Christmas and I was stuck using my Grandpa's Saitek Eclipse and Logitech G5, instead of my usual BlackWidow and DeathAdder. That was near torture.
I got really lucky with the Deathadder. I just picked it at random and it fits my usage perfectly. Same with the keyboard. Not quite sure about the build quality but for now it's great.
Yeah I've been looking for a new keyboard, and I'm not exactly liking the laptop-style spring keys on the lycosa, If I can scrap together some extra money after I upgrade my PC I think I might get one, thanks for the suggestion!
