I say get an extension. I've used USB extension for various things and never had a problem with them.

4 feet is short.

The ducky has this USB type plug: http://images.hardwarezone.com/upload/files/2011/07/e82d9fa5a8.jpg

What is it called exactly? And if I get one of these, but USB 2.0, will it be compatible, since ducky has a 1.1 cord?

As others said, just get an extension. It's not a big deal, it won't cause any problems

That's a mini-USB connection and USB standards are backwards compatible, so a 2.0 cord works with a 1.1 connection.

ya, just get a mele/female usb extension and you will be just fine. You can get them on amazon VERY cheap. Just make sure you dont end up with a total length of over 15-16 ft. After that the signal cant make it that far without a powered USB hub. I have several 6ft extensions from amazon that I have used for extending a HD video recording device, microphone, keyboard, and plenty of other things. never had any issue.

The only backlit mechanical keyboards with stock PBT keys on the market are Deck, which are very high quality ones. You'll be better off getting one of those than getting a ducky shining and putting aftermarket PBT keycaps on it, also, because all the aftermarket PBT keycaps are not translucent or meant to be used with backlighting

Decks? I thought that Ducky was the only backlit keyboard, nobody seems to know about Decks.

How good is Deck in quality comparison against Ducky Shine?
