Default Keyboard Keys Installed Upside Down on new K68

I just bought a new Corsair K68 on sale today and wonder:

Why are all of the bracket, colon/semicolon, equals/plus and other keys upside down?

Is it just the K68 that's this way or is it all Corsair Keyboards? I have never in my life seen a keyboard with those keys installed upside down before.

It's a Corsair thing. The LEDs are mounted high, so they want the main keystroke to be on top to illuminate it.

It's the dumbest, most moronic, ridiculous thing I've ever seen.

Took the keyboard back, got a refund and bought a Cooler Master. Shame too. I liked the action of the Corsair better, just can't deal with an incompetent layout of upside down keys.

Once you get past the initial adjustment, it really only matters if you are hunting and pecking for keys. Hard to see which is top/bottom with your fingers over it. Regardless, there are several brands that set their keyboards up this way for lighting purposes, so do mind your step.
