lol, I've ordered Ducky 1, 4 days ago. Well this will be difficult for my psychic, but it's life... you need to resign with what you have, even if something better is next door, or you'll get mad.
Anyways, I've waited more than enough, so I simply cannot wait another 2 months, I think Ducky 1 is good too.

From those specs I've read, does it mean, that it now stores brightness level in memory?

I've posted this many times without any replies. I would really appreciate if someone in San Jose Bay Area with a mech keyboard with brown switches (Ducky preferably) would let me try their keyboard for literally 1 min so I can get the feel for the keys. I tried a keyboard with brown switches (don't remember the name, Nighthawk maybe ) and I didn't really like it. I can't decide which switch to order. I have a Blackwidow and while I enjoy the clickiness, it is almost too loud for me. I wonder if Duckies blues are a lil quieter or if the browns have a better feeling than on the board that I tested at the store. I was told before that all the switches will probably feel the same regardless of the board manufacturer. Is this true?

I doubt it, it's not a bug, they just don't include memory in the keyboard. Most mechanical keyboards do not store their back light level in them.

I'm looking at the specs and nothing makes me believe they included onboard memory this time. It seems like the Ducky 1 in almost every way.

I just started shopping for mechanical keyboards myself and after an inordinate amount of time ended up deciding on a Ducky Shine...only to discover a new version is right around the corner. wackosmiley.gif

Believe me, every day I spend using my mushy, sticky keyed old Logitech is agony but I figure that I've waiting this long, why not hold out for the new version and take advantage of the massdrop. My hope is also that it will let Ducky know they should take the US market for mechanical keyboards seriously! It's not just a niche for programmers and professional typists anymore. thumb.gif

I have suffered enough, and every other day is longer than lifetime. So Ducky 1 is my only way... ;-)

Well guess who lives in the Bay Area and has a Shine w/MX browns? Me!

-_- I just got my Shine in March and now they release a v2 with (maybe) memory after 6 months? Ahhh, scumbag technology. Making you think you have the best only to discover something better is coming soon.
