my ducky shine II came in, and here are some pictures of the box along with the keyboard. note it came with WASD red keycaps and i changed it.

front of the box


back of the box




the keyboard itself



i definitely feel a difference going from blue to brown switches. i miss the tactile feel of the blue switches but i did want a quieter mechanical keyboard so it all works out~

I got my Ducky Shine 2 biggrin.gif typing on it right now actually. I have it hooked up to my mac laptop and the only LED that works is the CapsLock button when I press it. I'm assuming this is because these keyboards are not compatible with mac's? The LEDs should work once I get my Windows rig up and running right?

Coming from a first time keyboard purchaser (seriously this is the first keyboard I have ever bought besides the one built into my laptops) and first time mechanical keyboard user, these are my first impressions:
1) loud... hands down it makes noise where as I'm used to zero noise when typing (Mac chiklet style keyboards). I even got the MX Brown switches which are supposed to be quieter but its still quite noisy. I don't have a problem with this but for anyone who has never typed on or laid eyes on a mechanical keyboard you should know this going in... it will make noise bottom line. I knew that going in though and its completely fine for me.. I kinda like it biggrin.gif

2) Amazing. Best keyboard I've ever typed on.

3) This thing feels rock solid. Ducky obviously makes quality stuff and I was a little concerned about that considering these are imported from Taiwan. It does not feel light and plasticy but instead it feels heavy and solid. I was skeptical but I am VERY glad I decided to get one.

4) The only LED I can see is the CapsLock one because I'm using this keyboard on a mac right now but that one looks pretty good. Looking forward to lighting up the whole thing when my windows rig is done.

Thats pretty much all I have to say right now (opened the box 30 minutes ago).

Here's some pictures!

EDIT: Okay its been another 30 minutes and I figured out how to turn on the LEDs. Haha I thought the FN key was bottom left so I was accidentally clicking CTRL instead of FN when I originally tried to turn on the LEDs. Works now and it looks awesome biggrin.gif

Here's a picture with the LEDs on! biggrin.gif

And a picture of my rig ATM with the new Ducky

and last but not least NEWEGG BOXES!! biggrin.gif there's an ASUS motherboard and an i5 3570k in that top box biggrin.gif

Haha sorry for posting 100 pictures but pictures are worth 1000 words biggrin.gif

^ Those boxes do contain awesome indeed biggrin.gif Congrats!

The keyboard is sexy. I'll probably look into a while LED Shine in the future as well, even though my rev.1 blue LED is still working flawlessly. I just need the white LED for a future case build project that will start at around next summer when I have some free time. Already had a white LED mouse (Sensei RAW, don't even use it though tongue.gif).
