Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 46

post #451 of 931
Hey all after reading a lot about all the different kinds of mechanical keyboards, I am really liking the DS2. I have never tried typing on a mechanical keyboard, but after all my reading I think the brown keys would be best. So, should I buy from MechanicalKeyboards.com or TigerImports.net?

AFAIK, they're the same company. Even when you checkout at Mechanicalkeyboards.com you're paying to Tiger Import's Paypal account. That being said though, I think MKs.com offers flat $9.00 shipping while Tiger Imports doesn't.

It's worth the coin in my opinion. The build quality is top notch. It's significantly heavier than any other keyboard I've ever picked up. I got the tenkeyless because I have never had a num pad (been on laptops my whole life) and haven't regretted it at all. As for the LEDs being too bright for 8+ hours a day, you can adjust the brightness and even turn them off if they did start to bother you.

I would recommend this keyboard to anyone.

I just recently discovered the DS2's, does anyone know when they restock on mechanicalkeyboards.com and/or tigerimports.com? I really want one of those blue LED backlit TKL keyboards with browns. :x Not sure if I can justify spending that much money though, I keep telling myself I'm going to stop spending. ~o~

Ordering one next month for a Christmas gift to myself. Going to try and get the MX cherry browns with White LED, hopefully they stay in stock. Thanks guys.

Atm I'm keyboardless using my old membrane keyboard because I had to RMA my Quickfire Rapid... I'm pretty sad right now.

I am glad I ordered when I did. I got one of the last of the blue LED with brown keys I think. Sorry!

IT WAS YOU! I'm just kidding, it's perfectly fine, totally is making me think more carefully about this purchase. :\ I'm considering selling my current mech keyboard so that I feel a little less bad about myself in case I do decide to go for the LEDs- ahem, I mean brown switches. I am currently using red switches and have been pining after more clicky switches. I do have an unhealthy obsession with blue LEDs on technology though; I own the Steelseries Siberia v2 Frost Blue headset and its pulsing LED's are delightful.
