Is Microsoft Ergonomic 7000 keyboard backlit?

Does anyone know if the Microsoft Ergonomic 7000 keyboard is backlit?

I've seen several old reviews (2-3) that say it is backlit but provide no further information. The current microsoft website, newegg, and amazon technical specs do not mention backlighting.

I just called Microsoft Presales by phone and they didn't know either.

  1. Looking at the picture I would say no http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/p/natural-ergonomic-desktop-7000/WTA-00001#details
    Older reviews can be older versions of the keyboard.
  2. I highly doubt it, being more of a productivity keyboard they don't need the gimmick gaming features that we 'need to have'.

    That being said, I love my backlit keyboard. I turn off the lights just to appreciate it.

    Both of these articles say the keyboard is back lit. One is from 2007, and one from March of 2011. The keyboard doesn't look back lit and most manufacturers don't miss on including features built into their product.

    But who knows? :pt1cable:
