Next to the command keys, and above the number pad, we find four lock LEDs and the AUKEY name and logo. The lock LEDs signify if the Number Lock, Scroll Lock, Caps Lock, or the Windows lockout key is active, as they are backlit with blue lights. To activate the Windows lock, you simply hold the Function key, and press with Windows key to the left of the space bar.

The arrow keys are where you can adjust the lighting effects. Once an effect is selected for usage, using the left and right arrows allows you to lower or increase the speed of some of the lighting modes action. Using the up and down arrows, you can also adjust the brightness of the LEDs in four levels.

Extending the feet below the keyboard, now looking at the right end of the KM-G3, we see that all of the keys are now angled towards the user. This also makes it much easier to lift and move the keyboard, as when it is flat on the desk, the frame is not that easy to get a grip on.

Under the KM-G3 we find two rubber feet along the front edge of the keyboard to offer grip. At the rear of the keyboard, just behind the extendable feet, there is a thin plastic edge that gives the back of the keyboard its footing, but it is not rubberized to add extra grip. There are a product sticker and a quality control sticker, but we see that the serial number is found only on the packaging.

The flip out feet are wide and lock solidly into their extended position. Along the edge that will rest on the desk, there is a thin rubber strip, adding grip that we lacked with these feet collapsed into the keyboard.

As for the cable that connects the KM-G3 to the PC, it stems from the center of the back edge, runs just over three foot in length, and after passing through a Ferrite choke, the rubberized cable terminated in a gold-plated USB 2.0 connection.
