i replaced my old keyboard (german layout) with an us keyboard. It works fine but the backlight seems to be misfit a litte. Is it possible that they using different kinds of backlights?

Misfit how, please describe how it is being different? –  MrDaniel Jul 18 '12 at 21:17
i dont really know if it is different but i think so, because the backlight is irregular. –  YeppThat'sMe Jul 19 '12 at 8:48
I don't believe the backlighting differs on a per language basis. May be it's different manufacturing process because the US keyboard is newer than the German one? –  Michael Nordmeyer Jul 19 '12 at 20:08
