Unfortunately, it only deserves 2 stars because the paint quality is terrible. - Macro recording key combination ( [Fn Ctrl] for three seconds ) keeps disappearing. The light doesn't shine through some of the keys and in kind of random spots on the keys though so that part is true, but its not enough for me to dock a point over. - If you change the position of the function [Fn] key, it seems to mess everything up.
