    Backlit keyboards are a popular option among gamers and typists who need to see the keys easily in dark environments. Backlit keyboards use small, individual LED lights built right underneath each key that shine through the opaque lettering. For general use, these keyboards tend to be budget-friendly with a basic white or colored light. Gaming keyboards, however, can be more advanced and customizable with multi-colored LED lights tied together by a small processor. These lights allow for different layouts and setups based on the specific game and the player's individual needs. Some models can also change the backlit colors and intensity during gameplay for better immersion.
