    Their main Tt eSports page describes it as having "obsessional backlight"...

    These guys are starting to rival Razer for painful marketing.

    I wonder if the customization software (aka "Innovative customization GUI" :laugh:) is as well written as the marketing bullets.

    At least they put the arrow keys in the right location. :rolleyes:

    Looks really promising. Sidewinder X6 has over 90 macros, but still. This has some really l33t features that Sidewinder lacks.

    I like the color themes on it. Back light as in just under the keys? so the letters and numbers don't light then? hmm. I love my cyborg but am tempted to get this. I like the media and lighting keys separate tho. Easily to find and use that way IMO. Wonder what the $$ will be on this.
