K100 - extra keys

Hi, I just bought K100 OPT keyboard and after few short investigation and usage could not stop wondering... I won't speak about opt keys, they are perfect (if they work as they should, but that is probably just first revision build issue), but what about the extra keys? Why the **** someone thought it is a good idea to throw away old, many years proved design and replaced it with this unreliable, feeling ****ty, clicky bull****? Profile key often double clicks (not really, but from sound and feeling perspective), mute button works only on right side and all media buttons feel like child toy for 1$ **** - these are probably the worst as if you don't press them perfectly, they simply don't register the press! My old K95 (now second one) got 100000* better extra keys, they felt sturdy, reliable, I never had to press them again because they didn't register the click, but this K100 crap must come from some non-experienced student designer which had to show he actually did some work and changed something comparing to old, perfectly functional design. Stop this **** please! If something works, don't touch it! This killed the keyboard for me, returning it (tried 2 pieces, both same crappy extra keys so (probably) not a build issue).

 

If you create K101 with old extra buttons but new opt key, I will buy it, but otherwise this is a huge step back because becoming angry every time I have to press any extra button on this 300$ keyboard (it costs that much in my country) is not worth the money, it wouldn't be worth a half of it!

 

Sorry for my tone, but I really hate if some "could be great" product is killed by someone's stupid idea to make it different for no real reason, just to show he did something. I just expect from other to work as I do and in the world full of **** products when there appears something what seems to be an exception I am really angry when on the end is not...

Maybe you have a fault with your k100.. mine is in no way like this. my profile key works every single time. instantly. i suggest you open a ticket or return it to the shop you got it from and ask for a exchange.

 

My profile key also works every single time, but when I press it it makes double click noise and some weird clank sound. Profile key is my least problem, it at least works, but the mute button is tough on left side and I have to press it on the right side or maybe in the middle exactly, but if I press it more on left side, nothing happens, it does not move at all. And the media keys still sucks so...:)
