What did you use prior to your keyboard and what do you think about the brown switches? Browns, reds, and clears are the only switches I have yet to try and I'm set on getting Browns with a Ducky Shine(ing) though only if it comes as a tenkeyless model.

My previous keyboards were the Logitech G15 and a Saitek something-or-other. They were fine for normal boards, but the Ducky feels so precise.

I haven't tried any other switches, but so far I'm very satisfied with the browns.

So I've had my Shinning (blues) for a few weeks and the funny thing is that I don't know what to do with my Ducky OCN 9008-G2 (browns). Like everyone else mx browns were my first choice when getting my first mechanical k/b but now, I don't know if it's just a new novelty thing or that I"m just genuinely really enjoying the blues over browns. Even when gaming the various games that I do; BF3, Skyrim, L4D2, Batman: AC and Basiton I still like the way the blues feel. I was always under the impression that browns were better for gaming because of the actuation point difference between the two. Anyway, don't mind my rambling. Long story short I really, really like my new Shinning and quite possibly will do a freebie sometime in the near future with my other Ducky so be on the look out. Sorry for being a bit off topic.

Common misconception. Probably from the OCN Mechanical Keyboard Guide.

I bought a Ducky shine with green led and red switches. I hate my keyboard the shine replaced which is the steel series shift. The ducky shine with red switches is very amazing feeling. I have been using the ducky shine since Friday and iam still getting used to not trying to bottom out the keys. I love the look of the green leds i do not see any dimmer than the rest. The plastic the keys are made out of sort of has a grip to it which is very nice feeling. I have only played SWTOR with the keyboard but, so far this keyboard is way more responsive and less fatiguing than my other one. I am so, gladi made the move to a mechanical keyboard.

Anyone know how to reassign the keys above the number pad? I'd like to reassign which programs they open, or even assign them to do other things.

I know it's been asked before (a lot) but do we have a confident estimate on when the white LED's will arrive?

When we say January or February are we looking at LATE January and early February or are we looking at anytime in January and anytime in February?

just received my Green ducky shine with red switches. Simply amazing quality compared to my previous keyboards. I have only ever had a cheapo logitech keyboard that I used for 5+ years, then I purchased a Luxeed keyboard. What a disappointment that was. Cheap rubber dome, terrible construction, you could hear the plastic squeaking when you pressed hard, the keys would get stuck all the time (even the first week I had it), it was over priced (100+ dollars), tenkeyless (that I thought I wouldn't mind but it turned out I really like tenkey) and it would make my computer hang for 15 seconds on post (I know its a bios issue, but other keyboards didn't make it hang). So I have been using a 5 dollar discount bin keyboard for the last few months with a terrible key layout. The backspace was a small key and the pipe/backslash key was to the left of the backspace, making the enter button 2 rows high.

I absolutely am loving the shine though. I know its going to take some getting use to, but its already so smooth and much easier to type with. On top of that, it looks fantastic. The LEDs get WAY brighter then I imagined, I loved the dipswitch options and the simple layout.

I think there is one on pchome http://global.pchome.com.tw/DCAH0X-A60300250
it looks like white with black switches. I would try and get that verified though, since I don't know Chinese

Edit: Nvm, it says its not yet on sale. Sorry
