Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 32

post #311 of 931
Got my Ducky Shine 2 (green LED, cherry red ) from mechanicalkeyboards.com today. Ordered it monday night...very fast shipping.

This is my first mechanical keyboard since 7th grade typing class 20+ years ago.

I really like the feel. I wasnt sure about which cherry switch to get, but decided on the reds. I play alot of SC2 and so I figured I would get the reds as they are supposedly good for gaming.

The keyboard is extremely solid. The keys and the board itself have a good matte texture that looks good and should minimize fingerprint grime. Backlight quality is very good. The brightest setting is blinding...I am using the 2nd lowest level.

I am going to need a wrist-rest. I have used a keyboard with a built-in wrist wrest for several years, and its not comfortable to type without one for me.

I am very happy with the keyboard. I may have to get another one with different switches just to compare. Maybe the brown switches with white LED....

10/10

Yep, I had to fix an LED on mine (it wasn't soldered properly). The top cover is secured with 4 plastic clips on the top/bottom sides. You have to get something like a plastic iPod repair tool (so it doesn't mark the plastic) in the gap and gently lift it up until each clip pops. Go slow and easy, those plastic clips will break with too much force (as will the cover!).

That's silly. If you're not sure if you have money to spend, then maybe don't?? rolleyes.gif

This Ducky is a pretty solid keyboard though. I'm digging it.

Can anyone recommend me a wrist rest or post pics of your Ducky with the wrist rest. I just placed my order for another Ducky and I may just add their wrist rests to my order, I like that it's really raised. I cant find anything online that's similar to it.

I got the Ducky wrist rest in the mail today.

Not sure if I will be keeping it.

1) Its very hard. It feels like a piece of wood wrapped in leather
2) The bottom is slippery...it doesnt grip my desk at all (unlike the Ducky Shine2 keyboard that has very grippy rubber feet on it).

I might try one of those cheap 3M gel wrist rests to compare. I have a gel wrist rest for my mousepad and like how its nice and soft.

But I will give the Shiny wrist rest a week or 2 and see if I get used to it.

That sucks. Did you get it from Tigerimports?

Anyone know what other retailers are selling them?
