More or less is the same as refrigerators, if you live at the north pole you don't need them, if you live in Arizona they can be useful...

wait..what does quality of life have to do with backlit keyboards? Just saying if you need a mechanical over rubber domes, you are probably a good typer, which means no need for backlit and a need for nkro.

Just curious here, but why do you NEED nkro? Isnt 6kro sufficient enough for most?

Actually backlit keyboards are making my life WAY better, I'm not arguing about your preference, why you should about mine ?

I'm a good typer after 30 years of IT but I couldn't care less about being a proper touch typist, and no I don't NEED a mechanical keyboard as everyone else here.

I just prefer them over the average rubber domes, because, again, I think they can made my life better.

AFAIK you Americans are used to have the my exact approach to the automated gears.

Here they are considered, by most people, a tool meant to poor drivers and, while i personally don't agree, most of the Americans (please correct me if I'm wrong) doesn't even consider a car with manual gears.

Then why you should reverse your approach going from cars to keyboards ?

He's saying that some people absolutely require backlighting while others don't.

For example: some people prefer to use their computer in total darkness and thus they cannot see their keyboard. Not even their monitor provides enough light. Now sometimes we need to press keys with just our index finger such as an Function Key, or Print Screen, or some other key that's not easy to find while being on the Home Row. So that's where having backlighting can be very desirable. Yes, we can feel our way around the keyboard to find any key we want, but not everyone has all 104 keys memorized.

NKRO can be needed for people who sometimes press certain keys at the same time that result in blocked keys due to the matrix. So having NKRO guarantees that there are no blocked keys no matter how unique your game configuration is.

good point, my monitor generally has enough light, but I recognize other people have different needs as well.

I am a touch typist and I got the U9BLS and I love it. The backlight stays off 90% of the time but if I want to stand out at a LAN or just want to use my shiny things to attract ladies, I can crank them up

One one small thing to consider about the board when compared to the BWU is the placement of the USB and 3.5mm hubs. The BWU points out towards your mouse area and the xArmor points up towards your monitor. I prefer the xArmor for that reason.
