It's surprising how many people are complaining about this issue.

You have switch chatter. Try setting polling rate to 125Hz (little switch behind your keyboard). I believe it's setting number 1....

Thanks for the update and I do wish you the best of luck in coming up with innovative way to solve the issue. Personally, I don't think it's really necessary to have 16.8M colors. The nature of the...

Have you tried looking at it from a different angle? I think what you're seeing is light bleeding through a little opening on the switch right above the scattering lens.

When I was cleaning mine I...

Thank you.

Been trying to explain this, even used pictures, but it just doesn't get through to some. You've explained it better than I have.

Before you attack someone I think you should do your own research and read again what I typed. I never said that the USB is incapable of sending 24-bit data. I simply said that protocol used by K70...

This is flat out incorrect. The USB protocol allows for 3 bits per color. It is simply physically not possible. 8 bits per color channel is needed to allow even full 24-bit static color range.

Short answer is NO. If you turned off light on all keys except one, even that one key will only be able to show one of the 512 colors present in the color palette. This is not a limitation of the...

Love the analogy. LoL.

I never understood why they would have an NDA on a keyboard firmware/utility software. NDA make sense in cases where company wants to protect IP or wants to ensure that the...

Key press repeat is what I am referring to when I say chatter. I used Switch Hitter to test it with different thresholds and different polling rates on keyboard and at 125Hz it's somewhat OK, but the...

I wouldn't hold my breath for fix any time soon. Update would be nice, but they are walking on very thin ice with any update they give, thus silence treatment. They can't say they fixed the issue and...

I'll test higher thresholds when I get home. From what I saw in the log while this was happening, it occurs in 5ms-8ms range. I didn't see a single chatter above these values.

Perhaps this is yet...
