            It's a matter of taste of course. However some RGB-enabled products are quite annoying - for example my RAM kit requires a Windows utility to turn off the lights. It has to stay resident and uses a kernel driver, which in the past had some security issues. Same with my GPU, you can't just set it to "off forever" like my motherboard RGB for example. For me personally it's not a problem since all parts are in a sound-dampening case so I can't really see any of the light show going on inside.

                It's nice to be able to control LEDs from Linux. I don't really fancy them nor mind them, it's just something to play around :-)

                Unfortunately my Gigabyte / AORUS Board needs the acpi_enforce_resources=lax kernel parameter to control my RAM-Lights, which is apparently quite unsafe - and I'm not sure if there can be a better solution in the future that is not unsafe :-(

                  It's useful being able to turn RGB stuff off for products that ship with it for some reason. My case doesn't have a window so no need for internal lights to be on.

                  That said, my last MB shipped with a 30cm addressable LED strip that can be wired up to sit outside the case as a kind of desk light but unfortunately is stuck displaying just one red light and won't respond to requests.

                    Like a lot of the people here, I don't really care for RGB products, but when I bought my keyboard the RGB models were cheaper so I have one. I'm hoping that in the long run that OpenRGB will have notification features like the software the Das Keyboard Q models have or that they'll be able to use the lights as a way of showing temperature ranges or be able to incorporate other utilitarian uses into it.
