Hello all!

We need some feedback with regards to single color LED's. Personally, I love orange, but if you had to choose...

I thought about this, but ended up not being able to choose from the available options.

I already have a CODE with white LEDs (using it atm), and it's great.  For that reason I'd probably get a different colour, were I shopping for a new keyboard with LEDs.

However orange is subjective.  I've got a keyboard with allegedly yellow LEDs that are clearly orange.  So would orange therefore look yellow?  Too much ambiguity.

If I were to buy a new keyboard with single colour LEDs, I'd probably choose blue.  And not only because I kinda regret getting green LEDs in a Ducky keyboard a few years back when I could have waited a month and gone with blue.  Blue is not one of the options.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

No worries, I have set up a poll on r/mk.

A vote has been submitted there.

I must admit to having been tempted by True Yellow, but I'm still sore about not getting a blue one those years ago, so I voted accordingly ;D
