P.S. How do you get discount codes for TankGuys?


I'll see about getting a recording done possibly Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. Right now, I'm sorting a bunch of things out and I have to record the OCN Podcast this afternoon so there may be a small delay and I appoligize for that, but I'll see what I can do.

 

I do remind you, that my only camera on hand is my digital camera which will only take grainy video, and my webcam (Microsoft Lifecam Cinema HD) so I'll be recording with it, video shouldn't be bad but it may be have a slight tan/yellow tint to it, depending on if I can a recording done in the afternoon where I have better natural light coming in. Apposed to the lights of my house.

Browns are great too because when im gaming I dont even notice the tactile bump, it is only noticable while typing and thats exactly how it should be:thumb:

It depends. But I don't use many keys when gaming... Most of the time I only use Shift, WASD and space. In rarer cases I also use F and the number keys to switch weapons, but as I said - in rare cases, and if I use this, I use them rare as well.
Noise when gaming isn't a big concern to me because I game with headphones on, so I rarely hear anything that is outside the game, unless that is a really loud noise.

I just bought a Shine (blues) from tankguys about 20 minutes ago for my typing needs though and I am curious for the first hand difference in sound compared to my G2 browns.

Well the problem is that I don't really game as most people who are looking for gaming keyboards - I use very few keys. I have to type a lot because I have a blog and I'm programming, so comfortable typing experience is very important to me - I use 10 times more keys when doing that.

When will you get the keyboard with blues? If you type a lot, it would be nice if you would compare the two in typing experience and in noise levels.

Thank you, I want to see how it looks like. The only thing that I'm afraid of is fatiguing color that would cause eye strain. Well and of course if the color looks good. For example, I like SideWinder's red but I don't really like G15's orange.

Red looks nice but I'm still going to wait for the white LED version. I modded a Razer Deathadder for white LED's. I'm certainly not opening that damn thing up again to change the colors haha. tongue.gif

I'm looking forward to the red lighting. Currently have the orange G15 and it always felt like it was a washed out red. My computer has a red light on the front so it should look pretty cool.

Just as an FYI, the board I have has blue back lighting, since it's a pre-production sample. I'll see if I can get someone with a red board to shoot a video as well.

I can say for certain the the red LEDs are fairly intense and should satisfy those who like red LEDs on their equipment.

Thanks.

Speaking of the red LEDs, do you think that they could cause extra eye-strain?

Based on the red LED's on my DK9008, I wouldn't say so. Obviously it depends on the lighting conditions of the room, as well as how bright you have the board.

 

With the lowest setting, the blue LEDs on my shine provide more than enough illumination to see the keys mid-day even.

Well say in a completely dark room with the lowest setting.

As for the blue, well it's a "cold" color, while red is a "warm" color, to speak in school terms.

I just ordered 2 filcos (one blue one brown) just to try them both out and see which switches I preferred. Anyhow I was going to return these and pick up a ducky shine since they are around the same price but have more features. So my questions are as follows

1) How is the ducky shine in comparison to the filco majestouch in terms of quality? (ie is it as heavy / strong / keycaps don't fall off)

2) Do the back feet of the ducky have rubber pads on them like the flico, or are they just plastic feet (I can't stand plastic feet as they slide around too much)

3) I was reading that they are going to be releasing a white LED backlit version of the ducky, is this true? If so when is the ETA of their availability?

Thanks to all in advance!
