Does the product have inconsistent backlighting and therefore aesthetically displeasing, yes, an issue 'for me'. I assumed when I posted what 'i' thought it would be taken as my thoughts.
Anyhoo, I'm getting use to it actually, the keys are less annoying to me and the sounds doesnt bother me too much anymore. There is still an issue 'for me', and thats double tapping keys. I may just have to adjust how I play UT3. Marks are more obvious and increasing.

Changing your main input device for your PC is always going to be something big, especially if it's your first experience with certain aspects of the new product you're using.

I wasn't too sure about the keyboard myself in the beginning, but it takes time to get used to these things. It's like buying a new car. It'll take some time before muscle memory reprograms itself and you learn the specific nuances of the new motor.

After all, how loud something is can be very difficult to pin down if you have nothing to compare it to. And, yes, if the Blues are too loud for you, then that's an issue for you. I realize the discussion was regarding how light and noisy the keys are, that's why I mentioned I didn't think they were loud as compared to the blues. As I mentioned, the issues he was having weren't just his opinion, since I shared some of them. Possible faulty backlighting was not an issue for me when I considered this keyboard. Just having it (or not) was an issue though since I was looking for a keyboard with backlighting. You're trying to state that people's opinions are not issues, but I think it's just semantics. For example, using a keyboard under less than ideal lighting conditions makes backlighting an issue for me. I'm not saying it's a defect.
Trying to be quiet on a keyboard just slows down your typing. I'd rather pay attention to what I'm typing than how I'm typing. I agree that the finish is a little strange. If you check my review, I do mention that I was getting fingerprints on the keys within five minutes of using it. I wonder how they will wear? As for the key positions, it felt as though they were slightly further apart than I was used to. The shape of the key caps was square and seemed slightly small. I didn't measure them but I found I had to stretch my fingers apart a little more than I have had to with other keyboards. I notice the key caps on the BW are rectangular, which may be the difference I am feeling. I like the backlighting on the K90, but it's a little harsh at the bottom front where the spacebar is. You can actually see the LEDs under the spacebar. Overall though, I did like the backlighting. I like how it reflects off the aluminum.
I'm just saying an "issue" doesn't have to be a fault. For example, I as I mentioned, I have an issue with backlighting and was specifically looking for a keyboard to address that issue. "issue" doesn't mean "defect". More like "problem", so saying I have an issue with something is the same as saying I have a problem with it. That doesn't mean it has to be a defect although it could be used that way as well (as in "that keyboard has issues with the backlights", but as I mentioned that's semantics). Saying I have an issue with something that is not defective is perfectly acceptable.
I believe he was using the word issue as in "A misgiving, objection, or complaint: had issues with the plan to change the curriculum."
As I said, semantics.

I still think that such things should be stated as personal preference and in the context of the original conversation, the term issue was being used as if to say that certain opinions were faults of the keyboard as opposed to just opinions on it.

At the end of the day, I guess it's like you say and we're just arguing around any point that may or may not even exist at this point so I think we can end this with a "meh" and a thumb.gif. Probably a tongue.gif too.

Pile up some coins on the key until it actuates - how many coins (and of what variety) does it take? It should take 45g of weight to actuate, so if it's less than that then something may be wrong with the keyboard.

I tried three £1 coins and three 1 pennies - At which point it actuates. Though does differ slightly on different keys. Some take three £1 coins and five 1 pennies.
