Ducky Shining Info? - Page 135

post #1341 of 1497
Probably answered already but, with the shine can you use the ps/2 adapter for the rollover and still have the LEDs on? if not how many key roll over does this keyboard have and what exactly does the key roll over do? I know it has something to do with the amount of keys that can be pressed at one time.

I got a Ducky Shine with brown cherry mx keys a couple weeks ago. It is my first mechanical keyboard and I love it. I am curious about all the switches now that I have the brown. Now that Tiger Imports is restocked, I want to get another Ducky Shine to see what the other keys feel like. I found a Razer keyboard at a store which have the blue cherry mx keys and felt that and I really like the click feel to it. So I've checked out blue cherry mx keys and really liked it and want to get one but I haven't felt red or black cherry. I do play a lot of games which includes DCS A-10C, Battlefield 3, Skyrim, etc...So I don't know what key type to get next.

Should I get the blue cherry mx that I really, really like? Or should I test out the black or red cherry mx type? I've read that blue cherry mx isn't the best for shooters. I like tactile feedback and from what I understand the red or black cherry mx's don't have that. Suggestions? Blue, red or black next?
Meh.

If you want tactile feedback, I recommend trying a Deck Legend with cherry mx clears:

They are kind of pricey, but their build quality definitely makes it worth it.

I don't have my board yet, but I can answer question #2. As for #1, if there is an adjustment, it will probably be in the switches on the back of the board. I think I've read somewhere what they do, but can't remember the exact settings. I know there's one for example to disable the windows key.

The larger buttons have stabilizers on them to distribute the key onto the switch, so that's why they are more prone to squeaking and feel different. It may need some lube, especially if it squeaks.

Bigger keys just feel more stiff i guess, and dont make any sound like the other keys when bottomed down. I dont have any sqeak noise though. Just like you said...feel diffenrent. And the 4 switches at the back of the keyboard dont change the lightning, just caps/alt/control/win key functions.

1) My Blue LED Ducky Shine with Cherry MX Reds has the numlock, scroll lock, and caps lock and 1x key with a Blue LED instead of red or green. I ordered from Qtan and it said that I got a limited edition blue, so this might be why. Also my Blue LEDs look blueish purple but I think its because of the limited edition. 2) Same for me. 3)///????\\\\\\|||||| I don't know

Um, I ordered from qtan on the very first group buy back in october, ducky shining with cherry mx red and my num/caps/scroll/etc are red LED, so I doubt the blue LED are "limited"

I just got mine and can confirm in the latest batch from Tiger, that my board is all blue LEDs. Also my | and \ button works just fine.

The LEDs still work with the PS/2 Adapter. With the PS/2 it becomes NKey rollover, and its 6key roll over with USB.

To add to that, all the functions work with the PS/2 adapter. You would think it doesn't, but all the lights function with the media keys and shortcut keys.
