Ducky Shining Info? - Page 92

post #911 of 1497
My Ducky 9008 shine just got here today from Tiger Imports and they sent the browns as i asked so i'll have to say they did a great job in customer service ! ,as i ordered blues then sent an email few hours later stating i wanted browns, from order to my house 3 days . and im typing this on it now ! is a very smexy board ! i'm loving the features i just used the switches on the back to shut off the windows key as i hit this all the time in BF3, I see that the num and caps lock keys are red on mine ive seen them in green in other pics . I dig the the calculator button as i use the alot . and that the cap and num lock keys themselves are lighted in red easy to tell that these functions are selected this way instead of lil lights on top of the num pad, this might seem like a small thing but to me it adds to the over all thaught that went into this board . I Really like that it came with a ps/2 adapter since i game it frees up a usb slot for a joystick or any thing else you wanna plug in .
So my initial impression of this is i am a Very very Happy camper !!!..smile.gif.... so now its time for a lil BF3 to see how it works there , im expecting good things rolleyes.gif , heres a link from geek hack that tells the functions of this board .

I'm hoping Tank Guys release a set of key caps that show the OCN logos that Lite Up for the Shine thumb.gif

You guys keep crediting geekhack for that review, but it's a repost from hardware.com.sg from back in August (as credited at the bottom). The board is likely a prerelease. Also bear in mind that the price estimate is in SGD.

Yes, the DK9008-S, DK9008-G2 Pro, DK1008, DK1087, DK9000, & DK9008 all work on Mac's just fine.

 

The DK9008-G2 & DK9000-G2 will not work on Mac's unless you use a workaround with Adapters.

The ones currently on the TankGuys website are not. The DK9008-S when stocked, is the Shine model, which will be backlit.

That board, as well as the one that was sent to me, were pre-releases. They didn't even come in the newer DK9008-S box but instead were marked as DK9008-G2's.

 

There are a few minute difference from the prerelease models to the normal models that will hit the street. Most relating to PCB Revision number. Nothing anyone should worry about.

Hey Tater Tot,

I think the new ones are tickling in then this Box i just got is Marked DK9008 Shining with a cool pic of the board on it, it came with the nice velvet wrap, 4 extra orange key's wasd with puller and a ps/2 adapter . The lighting is amazing on this . the weight of the board lets you know its solidly made and the brown keys i got are very cool too im really enjoying typing on this biggrin.gif very glad this is what i went with . not to mention the blue lighting goes with the 200 mm blue fan in my box and the blue on my g9x laser mouse thumb.gif

STOP! I'm trying to wait until Christmas for my Shine but you're making it so hard not to jump on one! biggrin.gif

Edit:
Dont think anybody's mentioned it yet, tiger imports has a twitter and the post coupon codes on it. They're currently running 5% off your order with

tiger5

This is also not helping the fact that I want to buy this board.

So gentlemen, I am typing this message from my first new mechanical keyboard, the Ducky Shine with Cherry MX Brown switches! I had ordered this a few days ago from TigerImports which was linked above since I couldn't find it within myself to wait for the OCN version.

As a person new to mechanical keyboards, I've found that I've fallen in love with the joys of typing on a mechanical. Typing feels really natural on this and I did not find the transition from traditional dome-based 'boards to this difficult at all. It's a pleasure to use and enjoy. The keyboard itself feels very sturdy and of solid construction materials. My previous keyboard was a Logitech G11.

I could not be any happier. For those on the fence, I hope my input has helped! Good luck! I'll post photos if there's demand.
