Ducky Shining Info? - Page 113

post #1121 of 1497
Finally got my Shine. It's a lot heavier than I expected and the brown switches are a lot lighter than I thought they would be (not a bad thing though). I remember reading that you can change settings so the mail button opens up something different than Microsoft Outlook but I can't remember where to change it.

One of the things that bugged me is that a few of the keys have some scratches on the side and they are really noticeable with the light on. Other than that I love it so far.

the ducky shine was made with the same switches all around. Other duckys i know have had different switches under the spacebar. The guy was only saying its a different switch because the spacebar does feel heavier then the rest of the keys because of the proxy switches on the sides of the cherry switch.

Umm, my Cherry MX Red ducky shining uses a cherry mx black switch for the spacebar. Proof:

- Utilises a heavier Cherry MX switch for the spacebar to reduce "bottoming out"

Interesting! I just thought today about the lightness of the the red switch and thought this would be a problem for the heavier thumb (the way it rests on the bar) and see there, they put that into account. I like that.
Btw, the page just says "heavier switch", but not which one exactly. You checked it on your keyboard and it is black?

So how is the red switch Elvandar? Very light to press? Good for gaming and good enough for typing?


Edit:
So as I read on this forum, there are 3 retailers shipping world wide. TankGuys, Qtan and PChome. The site of the latter is in chinese, can't read it.

Is Qtan reliable? I guess hes in Asia, but according to him things are shipped from different locations.

TankGuys are U.S. based. Any idea how fast they ship to the old world? On their site, I see the ducky has a overclock.net logo on the space bar (Qtan has not). Anyone received the keyboard from them and can confirm that custom spacebar (I wouldn't want one)?

Any OCN-Ducky you buy from TankGuys, Shine or not, will have the additional OCN branding on the spacebar. If you don't want that you'll have to buy a Ducky somewhere else.

Thanks for the clarification.

When is that white backlit one going to be out? I have to admit that it does look beautiful! Also, which key switches will it be available in? I really want brown smile.gif Another thing I would wait for is PBT keycaps but it isn't a dealbreaker for me.

I just ordered the red light, red switch ducky from Qtan. Let's see how it works out.

Last I read the white version comes with clear switches, but can't say for sure.

I agree, white looks really nice, but reason why I personally prefer other colors is that white is very radiant and will illuminate the area below each button way to much and may be destractive when gaming in complete darkness. Red, in my opinion, is less striking. There is a reason why flight carriers use red light outside on deck at night, the short light waves aren't reflected very far, but work well within closer proximity. Blue, so I experienced, tends to light out the area much, while blue letters don't appear that sharp like red letters (or green).

In short, red is very noticeable when looked at, but is not very striking from the corner of your eyes and does not illuminate to much of the surrounding. Guess it's more function than style for me. biggrin.gif

Lightest switch I ever used, significantly lighter than my girlfriend's black mionix zibal 60. I think it's an absolute joy to type and game on. My only single complaint is that the spacebar sometimes squeaks but it only happens off and on and I don't think it bothers me enough to add any silicon grease to it

At least they don't use tuned silicon dome keys. So they can set a certain amount of resistance.
