I have a few suggestions for the next revision. The "perfectstroke" key system is nice. It has nice feedback, and personally I like it better than the mushy membrane switches used in other keyboards. I usually type in a dim room at night, and found black keyboards hard to see. But now with the lighted keys of this keyboard, the problem was resolved. The only suggestion I would like to make, is that some of the keys are not evenly lit. Most of the one character keys are bright(I use highest brightness all the time).
But some keys are not evenly lit. Especially the keys with large words on them, like the keys "Enter, Shift, Ctrl, Page Up/Down, Num Lock". They look dim in comparison with the other keys, even when using high brightness. I suggest putting another LED under these keys to make it look brighter and more uniform. Even though this would add cost to the keyboard, it shouldn't be much. I would gladly pay more to have an evenly lit, and nicer looking keyboard.
I also do not like that the Function Keys are not lit. You can't see the F1-F12 writing in the dark, only the orange symbols are lit. Please in next revision, make F1-F12 lit. The keys "Print Screen, Pause" are also not lit. Only the orange symbols.
Other than that, this is a nice keyboard. The key blocking is not a problem for me, and I type pretty fast, and haven't noticed any drop-outs. So people worrying about key blocking can stop worrying and just go buy and try this keyboard! I also want to say that I paired this keyboard up with the MX400 mouse. Nice combo!

Illuminated keyboard is what Logitech should make. It's especially important for gamers and programmers who, as we now, are gaming and coding most in the night.
