Default Need new keycaps

Is it just me or did the product designers miss the mark with the keycaps on the new line of keyboards? Don't get me wrong, I love my K95 RGB, so much so I now own 2 (one for home and one for for work), BUT... The keycaps need to be improved to illuminate the the non-shifted markings. I really would love to see them implement something like the photo included. This would be a fantastic option. I just hate having to spend $70 per keyboard to fix the keycaps.

Am I alone in this desire for better illumination of the key markings??

I type on my keyboards all day long and need to see the keys and markings. If all I wanted was to show off the lights, I would go with the transparent keycaps, but I need to see the key markings, especially in lower light. I'm a decent typist, but still need to look down for symbols and punctuation from time to time.

The front printed option seems like a good compromise then:

I would agree that I feel the stock keycaps miss the mark as far as lighting and durability. Mine started to shine up almost immediately, and so less than 3 months into my purchase I've replaced them.
