Ducky Shining Info? - Page 121

post #1201 of 1497
So when can we expect the tenkeyless model?
Also, red LEDs, green, white? What happened to using the standard blue?

More so, both the keycaps & casing are made of a thick PBT plastic which adds to the rigidity. The Deck Legend keyboards are also larger than Ducky keyboards, which makes it easier for them to absorb the sound of bottoming out.

The Deck Legend keyboards are built like German tanks from WW2, but they unfortunately have a high cost of entry ($20-50 more than the DK9008-S) as well as a complete lack of features.
The cable is permanently attached, you are forced to choose between USB & PS/2, as well as not having media keys, Key Swapping (E.G. Swapping the functions of CTRL & Alt or CTRL & Caps) nor Key-Locking (E.G. locking the windows keycap) not any of the other features found on a Ducky keyboard (like detachable cable)

More so, most folks do not enjoy the font of the Deck Legend so they will not purchase one.

Other than that, Deck uses a flat key profile instead of a sloped one. Which most folks find the sloped key profile better for typing, while some like the flat profile more for gaming.

That ruins the Deck, IMO. I have small hands and I thought a Flat profile would be good/equal for me compared to a Sloped: It's not. For Typing, and both FPSs and RTSs, I find the design awkward and noticeably distracting. Using L Shift to Crouch in shooters is a pain in the butt. Quality is second to none, though...real-nice key caps. Really, though, I don't see why anyone pick a Deck over a Shine.

So I scored an Overclock.net edition of the Ducky Shining for Christmas (exactly what I asked for, woohoo!); brown switches. My wife was really sneaky and simply replaced the keyboard on my system before I woke up, so when I sat down to use it, I was like whoa! Awesome!
This is my first mechanical keyboard, so I ran some typing speed tests immediately (well, after playing with the lighting options for a while haha). First try I only got 56 wpm with a few errors, but on only the 2nd try I was up to 78 wpm 0 errors, so things are looking good. Played some FPS games, and its performing perfect, I really love it. I think I'll be 100% used to it after only a couple of days.
I'm glad I got this version with mostly red keys, because they are so much crisper than the blue keys. (This is because strong blue light is a very short wavelength for the eye to focus on.) Although I think the white would look great too, and would be crisp also.
Some of the keys do have weaker LEDs-- the "6" "9" "S" "F10" "F11" and "F12" keys are all slightly dimmer, at all brightness levels. Removing the keys you can see how much dimmer they are... not sure if that bothers me yet, but I don't think it'll be an issue. No squeaks from the spacebar yet & the cord is plenty long.

That sucks. It shouldn't be like that. My Deck doesn't do that. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Or even any layout of the tenkeyless version? If the Ducky Shine TKL will have a good layout, I may just buy it, otherwise I will go hunting for a KBT Race.

Wooo, mine arrived today. Red LEDs, red switches. As soon as I get my tripod set up tonight, I will take some pics.

I was thinking of getting the red switches but I tried my friends keyboard with black switches and i found it softer than rubber dome keys. There are people complaining of blacks being too hard for prolong typing and makes it sore. I call bull*****.

Black switches with white backlight please:D

Everyone's fingers are different. Blacks are stiff, can't really argue with numbers - they require the most force of any Cherry switch to push down - but are they "too" stiff? Well, that's up to the individual.

I find that blacks are too stiff for me for typing and gaming. But, its all personal preference. I still like the 55g Topre over the 45g. Some people prefer stiffer switches.

Deck have way better caps that will outlast Ducky shine caps by a million years. Their led's are Way way better quality (cost about 1 dollar a piece - if you were to by them yourself), and you can actually get them replaced right here in the U.S. Deck is better quality, and they offer better service. Its just too bad their styling is funky, and that they don't offer a more traditional tenkeyless. Otherwise their boards are 10 times better than a Ducky.

I think the only places you can get a shining shipped to canada is:

qtan's store: http://www.vendio.com/stores/E-sports-Gaming-equipments/category?top_searchString=ducky+shine&searchString=ducky+shine

and

ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ducky-DK9008SHINE-BLE-Gaming-Keyboard-Black-Cherry-MX-Blue-Switches-/320809764508?pt=PCA_Mice_Trackballs&hash=item4ab1c0869c#ht_2624wt_1396
