The white on black Astra Series Xlprint Mac Backlit Keyboard (US) from LogicKeyboard offers five selectable light levels, making it suitable for use in any lighting environment. With one wire for the USB hub and a separate one for the keyboard, it is suitable for editing systems that use USB KVM extenders and installations that require data security.
The keyboard makes controlling Xlprint software a lot simpler and faster. It is ideal for post-production facilities, professional video editing houses, and anyone else who requires all the custom key commands to be readily accessible from a dedicated, clearly labeled, color-coded keyboard. This keyboard also offers a suitable way to learn the Xlprint key commands.
The Xlprint dedicated keyboard also features all the regular letter, number, and symbol labeling that you will find on a conventional keyboard. Without the need of any software, it is easy to set up and use. The keyboard offers soft touch keystrokes for added comfort.

Recommendation: DO NOT PURCHASE. I had such high hopes for this keyboard, backlighting, DaVinci Resolve keys, perfect for learning the app and color grading in a darkened room, nice key travel. That was in July. By September the poor design and low quality of the keyboard became obvious in four ways: 1. Two of the keys came off, and would not stay on due to the fact that one of the brittle plastic clip molded to the key that attaches to the switch broke. Wrong material for molding keys, the plastic is too brittle. 2. The paint started coming off some of the keys. 3. The key spacing matches a Windows keyboard, not a Mac keyboard, the spacing of the Command and Space relative to the keys on the row above it are the wrong place for a true Mac keyboard, so if you are a touch typist and go between this and a standard Mac keyboard (like I do switching between desktop Mac and MacBook) you find yourself hitting the wrong keys when you do command shortcuts due to the difference in spacing. 4. Sometimes the caps lock does not work properly, I have to unplug and reconnect the keyboard for it to work properly sometimes. Sadly, this is past the return window, and while I put in a warranty repair request, I’m unhappy, as I don’t think a new keyboard can resolve these problems, as they are design and material choices, not simply a defective one-off.

Not the slim body of the recent Logic edit keyboards but in a good way

Arrived promptly and in good shape. Lighted keyboard is very handy. Very pleased.

I love the Astra keyboards. Great way to learn the shortcuts and also, because they’re illuminated, a great way way to see your keyboard in a dark edit room.

My first was the LogicKB 14, used it to death. This unit with its update DRS17 rocks, feels responsive and tight. Really a must for a Blackmagic user!

It does help me some of the shortcuts and I love that it’s backlit. Some labeled shortcuts don’t match up but that can be expected since these apps are always getting updates. Keys feel nice and I like that you can adjust the brightness of the backlight. Overall I’m happy with it.

I’ve had this for two months and the keys are falling off. Not a quality build.

In essence it is a cheap keyboard with poor quality print on the keys that charges the price of high end gaming keyboard. It’s sad that anything with the tag of film gets so overpriced. But you know… no other options…
