    Hi,

    In the bottom keys, I mean space, alt, ctrl, arrows, etc... the light is a bit darker on my keyboard.
    I dont know if this is a problem like 1 row of leds not lighting up, or if this is normal.

    I took some pictures of my keyboard for your better understand, check it out:

    Thanks in advance.

    It is normal, it's the last row so it won't have one below "shooting" light upwards

    I received a replacement keyboard today, and both the ones I have now had are better illuminated than your pics show. The bottom keys are equally lit all around, Not by much over yours, but they do look different. Don't think it is something worth worrying about though :)

    Yours is a Windows 7 key... This is a Windows 8 key.
