Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 13

post #121 of 931
The Ducky Shine 2 will be visually similar to the Shine 1, with the only difference being the LED features. The LED modes include the usual low, mid and high brightness, plus the pulsating feature, but also includes a few more modes that make it stand out. It features a 'marquee' mode in which a trail of light will perform a zig zag pattern all the way down the keyboard with a massive light explosion at the end. There's also a 'spark' mode in which keys will only illuminate while pressed. Lastly it has a selection feature in which you choose which keys are illuminated. This way you can just light up WASD, Space, And ESC, or make a design, or whatever you want. I believe it will also save the design for the next time you apply that mode. Full list of specs here:

It will be available in late August/early September. No official date. It'll be available in blue, white, red, green, pink, and yellow LED colours. My guess is the price be somewhere in the $150-$180 range.

Will there be clearance sales on gen 1 shines? Or will gen 2 shines be sitting above gen 1 price wise?

They should replace the old ones like the 9008G2 did the original 9008?

台灣部分,上市可能要再等兩星期,首批會先以中刻為主,​4種軸配上6種LED,約有24種版本可以挑選,至於英​刻量會比較少,要等實際出貨才能確定了。至於價格方面,​要等到上市才會確定了。由於還沒貨,所以如果有喜愛的版​本,可以先請店家保留,或跟店家做預購,不然可能貨一到​店家就被買走了 smile.gif
My very limited chinese:
2 Week ETA is for Taiwan.

Something about 4 switches 6 LED colours so 24 models to choose from. Stock for English keys will be lower.

They expect to run out of stock quick and suggest you preorder.

If only I knew where to pre-order from frown.gif

Also somewhat relevant, there was an awesome post on Ducky's Facebook page about them making backlight compatible keycaps. There's no release date at the time but man, they sure look beautiful drool.gif
