Shoddy software seems to be a hallmark from "high-end" keyboard manufacturers. My Logitech mechanical keyboard, just a little over 1 year old, crapped out (or at least the left control key did). I replaced it with a Corsair K70 RGB MK2. Fancy-schmancy back-lighting to trigger the most well-medicated epileptics. According to the Corsair iCue application, you can program any key to do anything: type text, invoke macros, run programs, and so on.

I tried to program a keypress to type the password I use at work. It's not hard, all simple ASCII.

You can not get there from here. I complained to customer service, who referred me to a YouTube video from a gaming community reviewer.

On the plus side, the back-lighting works okay. I've got it set to a simple pale blue that makes it easier for me to type.
