Blue/Red LED Back Lighting
Many gamers often play in a darkened room for less distraction and better screen visibility and while that may be the ideal gaming environment, it can make the keyboard difficult to see. The KG400 uses backlit keys and these can be set to either blue or red at the touch of a button and a centrally located dial can be used to adjust the brightness of the keys to make them easy on the eyes.
Unlike a lot of other similar keyboards, the LED lighting is not overly bright and in a well lit room it is just noticeable however the lighting really excels in a darkened room.
The keys have a soft action and the space-bar has two thumb shaped indents on it for comfort.
Media Control Keys
Often lacking on inexpensive keyboards are dedicated keys to control Windows media player from the keyboard but the K400G has six keys dedicated to media functions including a Windows Lock key which disables the Windows Start key to ensure your gaming experience isn’t interrupted should the key be accidentally pressed while gaming.
Thanks to its utility software, most of the keys on the K400G are programmable. Standard keys can be reassigned as can the multimedia keys and even macro key presses can be defined and stored in three user defined profiles giving 15 macros in total.
