The clear Cherry MX switches will never have the same searing hues as the raised LED type, but the KM780 still provides a nice glow. It's not surprising, but still slightly disappointing, that the profile and media keys remain stubbornly red.

The volume light is responsive and a clear indication of how loud things are. Assuming you've gone temporarily deaf and need a visual indicator for an aural state.

Just to give you an idea of how the software works and what you can expect to see, here is a rainbow-esque profile and how it appears on the KM780 itself.

The mouse supports plenty of colours too, although they aren't as richly saturated or as bright as we would like. Still if you've ever fancied a harlequin mouse, this is the product for you.

To be fair, I found the 10 additional keycaps are quite easy to remove without damaging them. All you have to do is use the provided cap puller located about an inch away in the same little box. Though I will admit to being perplexed for the first second or two pulling on them by hand.Quote
