I just bough the Steelseries Apex 100 and will be promptly returning it. There is no way to turn off the backlight. And the backlight is not only overly bright, but it also flickers once every second or two.
All I want is a reasonable quality keyboard, that doesn't scream I'm 10 years old. Thought I finally found one. Why doesn't anybody make one. There seem to be some cordless keyboards similar to what I want, but I want corded.
I'm half tempted to pull the keyboard apart and remove the diodes.
