After waiting 4 weeks for this sexy lil keyboard, and paying an insane amount of money i'm a bit worried. Yes it looks amazing, and it types like a laptop which aint bad, but am I the only one who's eluminx keyboard emmits a high pitch constant squel from inside the far left part of the keyboard?

Its not loud, but you can hear it over the pc and its the sort of pitch that gives you a headache. 1 thing to note, when my pc goes into standby the sound stops, yet as soon as I move my mouse to come out of it the noise begins. Any suggestions, I.E can you fool the keyboard into thinking its in standby or does any1 think i should delve inside it. Cheers ppl.

I would give customer services a bell, I'm sure they will clarify this, I am pretty sure it wouldn't be released with a high pitched noise, must be faulty

i read a review on that keyboard a while back.. and once i got to the end and found out it was $100+, i said "no one's ever going to buy that!" guess i was wrong. :p

the sound probably stops when they comp goes in standby because it cuts power to the keyboard. but... then why can you press a key to wake it up? eh, i have no idea then.. nevermind, sorry. :huh:

Thanks alot, the sound definately kicks in whenever it illuminates the keys, because in standby they dont light up. Bugga bugga bugga, its like some sick joke. You have the sexiest keyboard in the world yet you don't want to use it because it gives you headaches. doh!

But for $100 I shall continue to bear the pain, my missus would kill me if I didnt use it :)

Ok i got feedback from Rodney at 3dgameman who has conducted a review on the keyboard and he says
If you put your ear on the keyboard, yes a VERY low high pitch noise.
so it seems to be unwanted feature:confused:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
