This keyboard requires (and comes with) a separate power adapter in order to power key backlighting, LCD and powered USB hub. Without it, it still works as a basic keyboard without backlighting, LCD and unpowered USB hub. It's disappointing that they didn't find a way to power it via USB (even if using an additional USB cable), the power adapter it comes with is really crappy. Note that it is possible to mod it so that it is powered via Molex directly by the PSU to avoid using the crappy power adapter it comes with. This gives an additional benefit of keyboard drawing zero power when the computer is off. See More
