Replacing Backlit Keyboard on Acer Aspire F15 F5-573-57R7

Aug 20, 2018
My Acer F5-573-57R7 has a backlit keyboard (broken). The cheapest replacement I could find is "without backlit", but it does say it's specifically for the F5-573-57R7 model (among others). Do you think it will still work without the "backlit"?

Note: I understand that you can't get a backlit to work in a non-backlit model. I'm wondering about putting a non-backlit KB into a backlit model to save $15. ;)
