available on amazon: I highly doubt it, they really only carry some filco keyboards and the razer boards
German layout: no idea

I'm so tempted, those red LEDS are awesome. I'm going to be gaming and typing, should I be safe and go for brown?

Also, I've heard so many great things about Filco, is the quality REALLY that much better on them?

http://www.amazon.com/Filco-Majestouch-2-Keyboard-FKBN104M-EB2/dp/B004VKUSG6

is $150, any opinions on if i should jump on that or get a red shine?

Thanks

Brown is a good choice for typing and gaming, I've tried almost all of them and prefer the MX Brown for those task you mentioned. Red switches are nice also, but I like the tactile feel of the Browns for Starcraft 2 much better.

The quality of the Filco is really that much better, having both when I received my Shine I could instantly tell the differences.

However the Ducky Shine is a great keyboard. So whatever your choice may be, I can assure that you will be happy.

How are the keys like? As in paint durability, does it come off easily/at all?

I am interested in the red backlit duck but would like to know that the keycaps paint doesn't come off easily like my current Mionix Zibal frown.gif

Also, quick question what is PBT and ABS?

I see they are finally up on tankguys. What happened to the white led backlight and what happened to clear switches?

White LED's are coming next year, (January 2012 from what I understand). I'll be waiting because I don't like the red.

Well, I finally got mine.

I really genuinely regret getting browns. They are too light. I should have gone with blues.

The keyboard looks great, I do not jest when I say it's the prettiest keyboard I've ever owned by far. As I've said before, sad I got browns. The lack of resistance means I don't feel that tactile "bump" you get with blues, which is severely disappointing for me. I mean, there's a slight one, but it's so small that it's far too easy to bottom out, thus making my typing loud as any volume improvements you'd have over blues are lost with that bottoming out clack.

The keyboard also uses different switches for the enter and space bar keys. Not too big a deal, they actually feel a quite nice and solid.

The construction of this thing is beastly. I'm pretty sure this could withstand even some of my worst rage face days.

Overall I'd give the keyboard a solid 8/10. Those two points I knocked off? Pure personal preference. I really regret not getting blues, but if browns are you thing? I don't think you could do much better than this. Ducky makes a fine keyboard.

On that note, I plan to order one with blue switches, but since I bought my keyboard from an individual and not a retailer, can't return it.

If anyone is interested I'll part with it for relatively cheap.

edit:

It should be noted, that most people won't have as much of a 'THESE ARE TOO SOFT' problem as me, seeing as I have gargantuan basketball palming hands that could crush a goat's skull.
