Looking forward to the release.
Get one and use it at work, then make everyone jealous haha

I thought about it. THis rubber dome here is not satisfying me.

One additional question about Duky Shiny - as far as I understand and can see from the pictures it's sort of "flat" keyboard.

Deck Legend seems to be a "flat" keyboard as well.

They both use MX switches (even clears on both in some flavors) - So if the ducky shiny keys eventually wear through I can just get the Deck Legend keys (that use sublimated negative printing and thus should not wear through) for replacement ? Well other than the large Return key ofc and backspace.

Deck Keycaps are special for their boards, and will not fit correctly on a Ducky keyboard. (or any of the other brands that use the same keycap types/profiles.)

The Ducky Shine is like all other models from them, and sloped slightly.

Clear or Brown. I had same keyboard and am now using non-illuminated Filco Majestouch2 with browns and am loving it after 3 weeks of use. Don't miss the illumination at all (thought I would).

Do miss the thinness of the Logitech and built in wristrest. But I am using a Filco wristrest and its nice being "stepped" and I've adjusted to it.

From a chiclet-type keyboard like that I would recommend swapping to browns or blues - it will probably be the least difficult to get used to. Blues are clicky and loud, browns are quieter but still have a clicky feel. They are both fairly light key switches though. If you feel like you're going to be "bottoming out" (which from my experience happens when you're coming from a rubber dome and you're a fast and efficient typer) you might want to go to a heavier switch like a clear.

We can make tons of suggestions though and everyone will have a different piece of input for you. The short version is that all switches are different and you'll need to try them yourself to decide.

As a government worker, I have to use these crappy issued dell keyboards, which are probably rubberdomes. I don't press very hard and i don't think i am "bottoming out". Is "bottoming out" bad for the keyboard? or just inefficient?

From reading some post I think I will either be buying brown or clear switches. Wish there was a store in Hawaii where I could test out keyboards T.T

exactly what daha said. I hate those rubber dome keyboards they issue. Also, for transitioning from rubber dome to mechanical, I went to blues only because I didn't know any better. If you are a heavy typer I would recommend blacks or clears like tator likes to suggest. If you type rather lightly, browns for sure, as they are a gaming switch, and I assume you are doing some gaming.

Bottoming out is not bad for the keyboard, just inefficient like you said. On rubber domes, you have no choice but to bottom out since the rubber dome actually presses down on the actuator. You can come within like a milimeter of bottoming out rubber domes and still actuate it, but you'd have to have some surgical precision-like fingers to type like that.
