As such, the shipment was pulled, and we are not sure when the English Keycap Version of this keyboard will be available again.
We do have around 20 of the English + Chinese Brown Switch Blue LED Shines currently in stock (my personal favorite), and expect to receive 75 English only Brown Switch Green LED Shines and 5 English + Japanese Brown Switch Blue LED Shines in mid-December.
We apologize for the inconvenience. "
I didn't know Ducky had strict standards?

that's only for browns and the estimated next shipment arrival is January 10th. Which was great becasue that was my Christmas present mad.gif

post #1115 of 1497
I'm looking to replace this keyboard I currently have and was interested in picking up a mech board

I wanted a red led backlit one and came across this one, which also happens to be the overclock net version


http://www.tankguys.com/ducky-shine-keyboard-mx-overclock-net-edition-blue-abs.html

Im not completely sure on the difference of boards yet - this one has "Cherry MX Blue"??

Is this the only site to pick up this board and any comments regarding it? Thanks

AFAIK it's the only store in the US that sells Ducky boards. There are some Asian based sites that sell them and ship internationally, like PCHome and qtan's store.

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.

It does not use different switches for the spacebar or any other key. If you bought blue switches that is exactly what you have. The space and other large keys have a single cherry switch in the center with proxy switches on the sides that are hooked up to a stabilizer bar.

Maybe your doesn't, but Ducky is definitely known for having different switches under the space bar and sometimes for the enter. My 1087 with blacks had grays under the space bar and enter key.
