    Would Razer consider illuminating Shift/Fn Keys in future versions? The white markings for "*, -, +, ., :, <, >", for example, are barely legible, except for younger eyes perhaps.

    The problem currently is the light placement in relation to the switch. The switch gets in the way of producing light on the bottom of the keys. I believe logitech has to custom build a switch from the ground up in a different shape, just to illuminate the bottom of the keys. And people seemed to not like the feel of the new switch, so probably better to just stick with what is good and proven. Maybe one day razer will figure out how to figure out a different placement or something to fully illuminate every symbol, but currently they would most likely have to reinvent their own switch, and i dont think it would be worth the R&D to do that.
  3. Its been brought up on some older threads, but some people said if you turn the backlit brightness all the up it helps, but personally I find it too bright so I just memorize where the "hidden" keys are :)
