Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 55

post #541 of 931
I'm thinking about possibly getting a ducky shine II soonish, and I was thinking about getting the yellow-backlit one with cherry mx blues. However, it seems like almost nobody else is getting the yellow-backlit one, is it just an unpopular color or is there something bad about it? Does anybody have a yellow-backlit one?

Gear mentioned in this thread:

I think it's just an unpopular color. I doubt there's anything wrong with it. Don't take my word for it, but I'd imagine yellow could be a bit hard on the eyes, being so bright and all. If that's what floats your boat though, go for it. I love my Shine II.

I took a chance on it and love it. (Yellow back-light)

It's nice to buck the trend of the blue LEDs. I have some yellow LEDs on the way to swap the ones out of my Deathadder and possibly the power switch on my tower.

They are very easy on the eyes, I just use them on the lowest setting, it's just enough to make the letters illuminate without looking "lit-up".
Yellow and possibly green are your two best colours to reduce eyestrain IMO.

It's kind of a warm yellow that has a bit of a vintage vibe to it, looks great in real life. It's not a bling or "flashy" colour, on the other hand you might not tire of it as quickly as some of the more bold colours.

Believe me, I know what you are going through, I had to have blue LEDs (because it's easy to coordinate) and ordered the yellow pretty much by mistake. I realized my error shortly after and decided to let it slide. Glad I did.

Thanks! I think that settles it then, yellow LEDs it'll be biggrin.gif

I wanted something unique looking, but I was worrying that yellow might be garish and straining. I'm going to be using the keyboard for a long time, so I want something I won't get tired of. Yellow is too cool of a color to pass up thumb.gif

Considering buying this keyboard. I had a few questions that maybe you guys can help me with.

Currently, the brown switch, white LED, and fullsize (with tenkey) combination is out of stock everywhere I've checked. Is there a way to know when it'll be back in stock? I might come around for a different LED but a few of the brown switch + fullsize combinations are out of stock anyways.

Secondly, is there the possibility of the price dropping at all within the next few months? (Not make or break for me, I just have time to spare)

Thank you for your time.

browns and whites imo would be the closest to blues without the sounds, i've tried red and they feel very nice, what ive found is that blues are terrible for double tapping, so when playing sc2 where you have to double tap your control groups for the camera to go to that position, its a massive difference from my friends red switches, blues are good for typing but when you whaling on ur keys, not so good.

here's a guide to the key switches http://www.overclock.net/t/491752/mechanical-keyboard-guide

its very good i wish i had read that before buying my keyboard, it explains how each switch works along with .gifs that illustrate how each keystroke works
but my advice go out to a local store and ask if u can try them out thumb.gif because they all feel different and what it come down to is personal preference.

one more thing all mechanical keyboards are noisy to some extent tongue.gif

Edit: once their back in stock (unless you don't NEED led's then you could go with the original OCN ducky's for $90.00 right now)
