The worst thing is I had perfectly good shift-w-space working keyboard, but I had a space bar problem, so they've replaced my keyboard with a new one, which not only has aforementioned key combination blocked but space bar i broken again! This is an expensive keyboard and from 2 units i had my hands on 2 are broken. This ain't right....

So my question has to be is there a way to differentiate between the different production runs? I wonder if it would be possible to locate an "old run" version so I can get what I want. I just bought a K340 and it has a problem with w+d+space.
I have never bought gaming keyboards as in general they are bulky, gimmicky and many have a real juvenile look to them. I have encountered this problem with wired keyboards in the past. I just don't understand why any keyboard manufacturer would limit the audience their product could appeal to.
They had to realise that casual gamers would find either of these products appealing!
To Logitech *Please in future ALWAYS make your keyboards regardless of their main target audience gaming compatible. Further more hurry up and get out a wireless gaming keyboard that works with your unifying technology which is fantastic.*

Yep - I really like the keyboard...light presses...so it doesn't wake up my wife...good illumination...but the same issues everyone else has...I cant press "w shift and hit the spacebar"...I didnt think this would effect me...but then I got Modern warefare 2 as a gift and i kept dying as I run to a helicopter and jump....it go so annoying I was like what the hell this is impossible....until I discovered this.
Ok this is ridiculous that this can be a factor since I "upgraded" from a stock keyboard that has no problems.
So now to find another backlit low profile keyboard without "keyblocking as this will be going back to the store....

We have 21 century. We have 2,4 ghz wireless connection. And you tell me that you just cant make standard keyboards that would be capable of recognizing more than 4 buttons pressed at once ? Are you kidding me ?
Ok if so then tell me when for Chris sake i will get illuminated WIRELESS gaming keyboard ?

Death man, sorry, but I feel your statement warrants a correction:
"And you tell me that you just cant make standard keyboards that would be capable of recognizing more than 2 buttons pressed at once ?"
Note that I changed your 4 to 2 as this is the number of simultaneous key presses these keyboards can take
4 would have been great!
Though I must say that my K800 doesn't sport this issue. If I'm following this forum well, then only the newest K800 models sport the issue. The wired variant is worse though. Much worse...

I just rebuilt my computer and received this keyboard as an Xmas present to compliment my new desktop. Little did I know about this issue and I am not very happy about it to say the least. I replaced a cheap Dell keyboard that could perform this function and I just tested my Logitech Illuminated keyboard on a COD game and low and behold, I have this same W-Shift-Spacebar issue.
Logitech, really???? What are my options?

I'd like to add to this issue, which may be of some use for Polish customers looking for information (or any people that could use "i-alt-e" sequences for that matter). I'm professional writer so the keyboard is absolutely key device (ha, ha!) in my setup. I've been using the keyboard for a few days, and apparently it has some serious problems with registering alt+i+e at once, which very often happens when writing typical Polish words like "się", "cię", etc., especially if you type fast. Every now and then you will get only "si / ci" and the last letter is just ignored.
I've been tracking this using freeware keystroke state monitor (http://www.digitalgenesis.com/software/keyscan.htm
Shift+Space+W doesn't work for me either.
I'd like to add that I'm using Logitech peripherals for years (10+) and never, ever had such an issue before. Also my previous, much cheaper FlatX keyboards didn't suffer this problem.

I bought yesterday this illuminated keyboard and i cant believe its not possible to use w, shift, space together.
i wrote the customer support, but i can read here it will not help.
is it right? i cant fix this prob? so i have to change and use my old keyboard.
50€ and this easy combination does not work, its a bad joke...

Oooohh so that's the problem.. I was playing wow and I got so confused at first when I kept dying without having used Icebound Fortitude even though I knew I used it. But of course it was bound to Shift+5 and obviously I was moving with the W button. This really blows. I like JUST got this keyboard.
