Ducky Shining Info? - Page 101

post #1001 of 1497
Why is the Numlock key, Capslock key, etc. backlight green in the picture given above, while the retail versions are back-light red? I like green more, can I get the version with green back-light Numlock and Capslock keys or am I out of luck?

When is this keyboard coming to the US?

Tater mentioned that it should be coming soon to TankGuys. Would the starting price be at 140$? and is there anyway to get a lower shipping cost to Canada? At the moment, it is about 20-25$ in shipping which is quite hefty.

Sweet, Qtan just said that my board would have the red LEDs instead of the blue ones.

Well that's good to know, it sounds more like a slight design flaw due to how those two keys are laid out, although some boards might have full brightness there... It doesn't bother me too much, it is just that I paid a good amount of $ for the keyboard and if pretty much everyone else had equal brightness across all the keys, I would want my full money's worth.

It mostly just has to do with how the LEDs are laid out in relation to the switches themselves. When you pop the keys off you might notice that the characters on the number keys and the commands on the numpad are also fainter, simply because the switch itself blocks a portion of the light. Ditto with the numpad plus sign and enter key, the switch physically blocks a portion of the light. Personally, it doesn't bother me in the least, but I can certainly see how it might bother some. There may very well be a way to hack something in order to have the LED fully light the key... the upside being, you only need to do so for keys with a secondary function, the downside being that I have no idea how one would do that since you have a very limited amount of real estate to work with and it's still a lot of keys.


On an unrelated note, I received mine from TigerImports today, and Cherry browns were the perfect call. It's a bit of an adjustment coming from my previous keyboard (a ****ty backup rubber dome keyboard), but I enjoy typing on it, I love the clicky feedback. Definitely requires more force, but I guess I have more manly fingers, and don't see it as an obstacle at all. Definitely happy with this as my first (well, first since an old Dell years and years ago) mechanical. I'll take it through some gaming tomorrow to see how it holds up, but so far so good on the typing. Only complaint is the price point (but I'm warming to that a bit) and the Engrish instructions (but I figured most of them out). Also the little duck guy on the space bar is a cheerful little exception to my normal hatred of branding.

Also, I like that they included a dust tray. I've seen what can come out of a keyboard. Ew.

Technically, they're regarded as tactile, non-clicky. The sound you hear is from the key bottoming and topping out. And Brown has a very light touch (part of the reason they're called "ergonomic" I think). I would think they would be a little lighter than your old rubber dome. If you want to feel a heavy switch, try Black or Clear or BS.

Can anyone tell me what the repeat rate thing even does? I have it on 1x and I don't know the difference between that and anything higher. Is it the frequenzy in hz? It definitely doesn't repeat a key I press so I'm kind of at a loss on what it does. The box just says for intense gaming, you can increase it or something.
