    It is consistant - the number keys don't have backlit symbols either, only the primary function is lit. So, the keys themselves are lit, but the what's printed on them isn't. There are other examples of keys having things printed on them that are not lit, so that does still seem to follow a theme to me.

    No, they really don't. I'm using the keyboard to type this right now - and I can press the media keys, turn the volume key and mess with them right now as I type this - they don't feel cheap. The keyboard I used prior to this was the Blackwidow Chroma V2, certainly not a cheap keyboard. I've also used numerous other Razer keyboards along the way and I've tried other brands through the years. I've been gaming on a PC since the late 80's, Let's just say I've had a lot of experience to draw on and I've felt cheap keyboards and comparatively, this just isn't one of them. The media keys don't feel cheap to me at all. Though, I'd love to hear your experience and hear how much use you've gotten out of the new Huntsman Elite and how long you've used it for.

    The logo is on the wrist rest, and I just can't see how they could illuminate that and still keep it functional and comfortable. There is not a logo at the bottom of they keyboard.

    Yes, I know. But I meant "RGB-illuminated-Logo". Now it really look less-symbolic, at least on my view, and look more like 40 bucks no-name mechanical keyboard.

    *I just realized RAZER Goliathus Chroma also has no RGB-illuminated-Logo:eek_:

    Yes, he is picky, but when somebody ask $200 for a keyboard you have every right to be picky :)

    Initial thoughts after using this keyboard for a few days:
    • It just seems faster. Not sure if this is placebo or not... But it literally seems faster. The time it takes for me to hear/feel the tactile response and see the key pop up on screen seems to be shorter than the time it takes for a regular keyboard (BlackWidow, Blade 15 keyboard, MacBook Pro keyboard, standard office keyboard). Anybody else getting this?
    • I still prefer the old style wrist rest. This wrist rest doesn't have an angle to it. It's still pretty good though.
    • Volume knob is sooooo satisfying. Embedded fidget spinner??
    • It's pretty satisfying to type on. Compared to the lack of key travel on the MacBook Pro's butterfly switches, these Razer Purple switches honestly feel SO much better. Compared to Razer Greens, I don't feel like I'll be thrown out the window for typing so loud. More like thrown out the door.
    • Kinda wish something more innovative was down with the media keys. At the same time, anything different would scream GAMER.
    • As usual, glorious Chroma.
    This keyboard is definitely replacing my main keyboard (BlackWidow TE Chroma V2). I won't be using this in any office environment though. That role will be for the now secondary BlackWidow TE Chroma V2.

    Congratulations Razer on yet another amazing product.
    (On a side note... Dave 2D mentioned how there could be support for modules that replace the wrist rest... Like wireless charging... Would be really exciting if developer support opened up for this.)
