Why...? The battery would run out in weeks if it had lighting. It lasts a year because it doesn't have all those extra features like backlights and touchscreens.
Its so nice in the hands it works perfectly in pitch black. Its one of the most ergonomic remotes I've ever used.
Automatic LED backlight would not drain battery that much.
I agree the backlight on the keyboard is a must... that why i am using Logitech K810 keyboard.
But I dont agree on backlight on remote, becouse your "fingers are learned" of button positions in a few hours of use.
Anyway I am happy with it and actually I dont miss backlight at all, maybe already prefer that.
You have to know, that backlight missing was one of the key factor I havent bought this device before and I am sorry to my self for delay in buying it.
