None of them have 16.8 mill colors. They have more then 512 for sure but not 16.8 mill.

One of them does mention 16.8 million colours. They're not "bending the truth" as well, are they ?

Do you have any evidence to support the claim that none of Corsair's competitors have a mechanical keyboard with 16.8m color backlighting?

No and Yes; I used to have the competitor product (I think the one he is thinking of) and let's just say the animations were smooth as hell - I returned it due to bad quality key switches (they started squeaking).

Although they may not have had 16.8 million colors, they definately had a bloody lot more colors than the corsair rgb series have..

Corsair aren't even trying to add more colors to the keyboard now.. They have just given up?

With Logitechs software youll never find out because they sont let you set the speed of lighting so its hard to detect.

http://forums.logitech.com/t5/Logite...0/td-p/1365340

Users mention of lack of colors. But not many people got a G910 and even less care about 16.8 mill colors.

And of LOOK Razer didnt put a 16.8 mill badge on it.
http://www..com/chroma

I wonder why not.... DAmn this is a real puzzle.

Oh and look at this
http://www..com/gaming-keyb...ckwidow-chroma

First slide 16.8 mill static

Fourth slide look at that wording.

Lastly anyone heard anything from Razer or Logitech bashing Corsair?? NO? I wonder why maybe its because they know their products dont have 16.8 mill either or the three companies are best of friends.

Yeah, where do you think that nice technical explanation about the limitations of the LED controller came from?

The colors are technically there: You can set static lighting to 16.8m colors (reasonably, I'm not actually able/willing to test it). The problem is that the implementation is visually unappealing (flicker) when using lighting effects due to the limitations of the LED controller in the keyboard.

Yeah; sorry I was in a rush, I was meaning have they given up with the smoother animations (it literally looks like there is less than 512 colors with the flickering)

You ran it through some converter. It works fine if you dont mess with it and your CUE and firmware are both updates.

Below is a good video of the RGB light flickering issue. To be honest, it's pretty absurd when other manufactures have had no problems like this.
