I like it minus the orange. It seems like Logitech's philosophy is function over form and that's good for me. The keyboard I have now you can't see the letters on the keys without the backlight on. Trouble is I hate the backlight and wish I could leave it off. What about this keyboard?

Can that ugly orange strip be removed? Or possibly pried off if not?

The backlight can be completely turned off. I actually leave the lights on the lowest brightness.

Apparently it can be removed, but the keyboard has to be disassembled.

One of the mod happy folks at overclock.net did just that.

It does void the warranty because one of the screws is hidden under the sticker.

Nice to know thanks! If I decide to get one down the road (Probably get a Mechanical Razer keyboard instead) that's the first thing I'd do with the keyboard! Warranty isn't too big a deal as Logitech is normally good on quality!
