The keyboard is really heavy, the only bad thing its the cable (is too short). anything else its fine

That's the nature of quality mechanical keyboards. You could kill a troll by bashing them on the head with one. biggrin.gif

I hear ya, audio and USB would be nice but in my case it was not needed with hubs available etc. So I decided not to make it a factor in my buying decision.
In reality I don't think I want anything tethered to the keyboard because I have a hub so close. Also the headphone jack in the keyboard is not an ideal location anyways. (My tower is on the left with a jack, wire comes out of left side of headset and is 12' long.)

For a compact or business machine, audio and 1 or 2 USB jacks would be nice if you don't want the clutter or have no access to front panel audio.

So I got my Ducky Shine II Green LED Brown MX Switches Tenkeyless keyboard. I only got to use it for a little bit.

The thing seems to be quality work. The Green backlight is nice.

The button placement and spacial ability around the WASD keys seems a bit weird. It seemed like I couldn't quite reach the T Key easily. The FN Key seems to be in a weird place. I miss my horizontal vertically placed enter key that I'd sometimes use with my right hand thumb while using the mouse.

I seem to bottom out way too much when typing, I'll have to get used to using a brown switch mechanical keyboard, I'm too used to membrane keyboards.

I had the original with blue LED's and brown switches and upgraded for the sole fact that the new version remembers the LED status after reboot. I went with red LED's and blue switches. It's good but I just ordered another shine, this time like my old one with blue LED's and brown switches.

Haven't read the entire thread but it should be noted that the optional palm rest is really great. It is the best palm rest I have ever used on a keyboard.
Meh.

The brown switch/white LED combos restocked at Tiger and MK a few hours ago for those interested.

I got my Ducky Shine II for the holidays, and I'm wondering if there's a way I can change the email button to open up whatever I want, instead of my email. Specifically, since it lacks (for some bloody reason) a media button, I'd like it to open foobar2000. Any suggestions on how to do this?

I've tried keytweak and it didn't work. I tried putting foobar in the directory of Outlook (which I don't use) and playing with renaming things, and that didn't work.

It's really weird that this keyboard has pause/play, stop, skip forward, skip backward, but not "open up the program that these affect".

Otherwise, my purple Ducky is the most perfect thing I've ever typed on.

Tried remap with sharpkeys? Or maybe microsoft keyboard layout creator?
