    I own a K70 LUX and never got used to the double function keys being "upside down". It's so weird having to press shift in order to hit the "lower symbol" on the keycap.
    Reason they did is though, is because the LEDS are located on the "upper side" of the keys, which means the upper symbol on the keycap is illuminated much more than the lower symbol, effectively making them appear primary and secondary respectively. It would've been a more proper solution if they had cherry design the LEDS to be on the "lower side" of the keys though.

    I know Corsair has huge marketing clout, but this is a non issue. A blind person could tell the differences. From fonts, to key layout, to chassis design, not at all the same. And that's only on the ~1/3 of the Corsair keyboard shown. Likely more differences on the other 2/3 if it were shown.
