I don't think it's any other programs or functions that can adjust the brightness on the keyboard than FN + F4. =/

Congratz with your new notebook and Welcome to the ROG gamers community :D The way it's meant to be played!

So what do you think of the new notebook? Is it a huge difference than what you used to play on before?
how is the benchmark and such ? :)

EDIT: What is your opinion of pros and cons of this beast?

i'll do some benchmarks in a few. the problem is the fact that only the bottom keys are bright they get dimmer the farther up the notebook i look.

Hmm... it sounds like either something is wrong with the lights in the keyboard or it can be because you bought it with the purple light.

I don't want to confirm anything about that, so perhaps other G75 users with normal/or colored backlight could step inn and tell if they have the same issue.

Thats weird :S

It looks like it's normal with white color from the shift-button row and three rows up. And the Esc/Ctrl row is purple :S

I don't think it should be like that :p

Yeah - the Windows key jumps out at ya, but that's about it. I'd get on the phone with Xotic PC and see if they can make it right.

Naah - just invite 'em to your home. Tell 'em to bring more purple film and they can sleep on the couch... ;>{)>

Perhaps there are physical obstructions that prevent the insertion of film under the keys towards the top of the keyboard. If you really don't like the effect, I'd suggest you try to work something out with xoticPC to remove the film. The ATK Fn hotkey is the only way to adjust backlighting brightness.

still does not explain why the rest of the keyboard is so damn dim. i kinda plan on that BrodyBoy.

Asus keyboard backlighting is kind of uneven anyway....the little "glow" strip goes around the periphery, and sometimes has another branch that runs through the middle of the keyboard (not usually). Here, you can see how the power feed comes into a keyboard at one edge and "T's" out to either side, forming a circle around the edge. Keys close to the strip get brighter lighting....those in the middle appear dimmer.

One explanation could be that the added film (installed by Xotic) filters the dimly-lit middle enough to almost block the light there completely.

the film is only on the very bottom of my keyboard. like i can barly see the esc key lit up.

Well good news kinda.... im Rmaing to Xoticpc for a fix. Roland S. has never seen it before and i've been told down right to rma to them.
The Good news it will only be gone 5-6 days and i don't have to pay for the shipping. And all of xotic has been nice even the main guy i chat with for all my concerns Hutsady who has been nice enough to put up with me for 7 months while waitin for the g75 to be released lol.
