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.

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