I don't get what all the fuss is about, almost every company that uses RGB leds on anything claims "16.8M Color Lighting" But yet not of them is actually delivering that.

And now that corsair does it, its suddenly a big deal?

I know that the software still needs a lot of work. when the hype and price goes down ill buy it. Maybe by then there is a "fix".

If it's hardware limited, software cannot provide a solution.
But their software probably needs to be fixed anyways from the complaints I've heard.

It should be a big deal when any company does it, but it's especially a big deal when a company like Corsair does it. Why? Corsair is such a big player (and generally respected company) that they not only have a standard set for the quality of their products (including the advertisements and warranties on said products), but they influence the whole market. If it's okay for Corsair to do it and nobody gets upset, it's basically a free pass to other large-scale manufacturers in the same status (Logitech and Cooler Master are really the only other two I find fitting enough to be included for Mechanical Keyboards) to do the same thing, when it shouldn't become the norm for these companies.

I personally don't think the big deal is that there isn't 16 million colors (even though it seems like some in the thread are advocating for that) but rather they don't want companies that generally make fabulous products to fall into the norm of making claims that aren't true about their products.

Because Corsair wasn't one of them, now they're fading into the 'gaming' branch.

False advertisment, guady looking logos, PR mess... Come on now Corsair, why did you lie? Certainly you didn't think tech enthusiasts wouldn't figure it out?

I like the wording, call it enhancement. Nice touch lol.

I was just about to pull the trigger on one of these last weekend but was torn between the K70, the K95 and a Ducky Shine 3 DK9008 with MX cherry brown switches. I bought a K90 to replace a Filco just for the backlighting and ended up going back to the Filco because the K90 came with blue switches and I just couldn't get use to the blues coming from browns. But the main selling point that was pushing me towards the Corsairs was "Display controller driven fast and fluid 16.8M multicolor animation". That Ducky is looking like the winner now.

CalcProgrammer1 seems to be very well read on this type of subject, he made some more observations regarding the subject after the announcement.

In short, it seems to be possible to push that feature, however will stress the processor quite a bit to do so.

Guys
Do you feel like the light coming out of the side of the keycaps is annoying?




Especially that the keycaps reflect (show) some of it.
It feels like there is more light coming from outside of the keys than what's coming from inside the keycap...
