Yup quite a hardcore fail on that one.

Yeah, the BlackWidows are a waste of money when you can afford a Das Model S, a Filco Majestouch, a Ducky, etc.

You're welcome! I consider it a real privilege to be a part of this!

Weird. Maybe it's a brand new version of the Das Model S.

I'm honestly impressed! I admit that when I tried my Lycosa for a short time that one day, the whole experience left me wishing that I had been typing like this ever since I started typing like 15 years ago even though I've never had a mechanical keyboard before.

That's cool that she prefers the Ducky, but what do you prefer?

I bit the bullet and ordered the Ducky 9008 (Cherry Blue) black on black keyboard + extra set of blank keys and another set of black on black. =) oh and add in a limited edition hello kitty mousepad+ Ducky's wrist rest for AU$228 inclusive of shipping which is approx US$244.

Kinda excited but i received an email from them saying that my order would be delayed due to credit card issues, hope it'll be settled soon, money has been deducted from my credit thou... =)

Just for the record, the Brown has the same spring as the Blues, it's just that the design of the clicker mechanism in the Blue switch means that more force has to be applied to actuate the switch. There's a 5g difference between the two, it's pretty subtle.

They're ok if you have strong fingers. They have quite a substantive feel to them, and the linear travel is quite nice when you get used to them. They are quite stiff though, and I found them tiring to type on for extended periods of time. I found buckling springs to be much easier to type on, even though buckling springs have a higher force rating.

So, things were getting quiet over the few days. Was excited since the keyboard left taiwan on Monday and time couldn't have pass slower. but anyways, as they advertised, my item was delivered on time within 4 days. Actually it reached Australia yesterday and was delivered this morning. =)

So! here comes Santa Claus as my girlfriend calls it. =)

PS: Forgive the lousy photo quality. It was taken using my mobile phone. =)





























and the Hello Kitty mouse pad is my girlfriends. =) other than that, one new happy Ducky Owner. =) but best of all, what does all of that cost? Less than USD240 in total inclusive of shipping from Taiwan. =) anyways, if anyone needs help ordering from them, feel free to drop me a message. all you need is Paypal. =)

It does ship to 105 countries. Link: http://global.pchome.com.tw/
