Defective Corsair K90 - Take it to NCIX or to Corsair?
 
Asking anyone for input, does not have to be Linus.

So I bought my Corsair K90 and I still have the box and everything it came with. Still have my receipt as well. Here's my problem. I believe that every single key on this keyboard is individually backlit. I just noticed that my "Ctrl" and "/" (on the number pad) keys are not lit at all.

I bought this keyboard on January 6th, 2012, so it's been 24 days. I really really don't want to pay anymore for this keyboard to ship it to Corsair. I mean, it's a $150 keyboard... I feel like I've paid enough for it. :sad:

I even re-watched the LinusTechTips Corsair K90 unboxing, and that keyboard had every single key lit.

Check the NCIX page, it'll say whether the item is under NCIX's 30-day or one-year return policies, or if it's warranted by the manufacturer only.

NCIX's policy is 30 days in store on this item. Take it back.

Thanks guys. I have a feeling that the employee will say that this is normal and that the light can't reach every button.. And then I'll be explaining to the employee that they're all individually backlit.... Just maybe... :P

Even if it wasn't individually lit every key should be lit up.

Yeah, I do a lot of research on computer parts before I buy them, so I'm 100% sure.

Vengeance® K90 Performance MMO Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Quote:

Professional grade brushed aluminum chassis with laser etched, backlit keys

The rugged aluminum chassis provides increased durability and stability compared those that are primarily plastic. The stiff suspension chassis and the laser etched keys are made for durability so they won't degrade over time. And the K90 has over 90 LEDs that provide outstanding illumination even in dim light.

90 LEDs does not equal each key is lit..

Dude, "over 90 LEDs" can mean 500.

Shows that there is an LED under the key, so I'd imagine that all the keys would be the same.

Shows all keys lit unlike mine.
