Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 62

post #611 of 931
I have a white LED with brown switches, I find that the brightness is too bright in anything but the first setting. Are other colors less harsh to the eyes? Maybe the blue or yellow? Anyone with experience owning or seeing 2 different LED colors side by side?

While I don't have a white to compare it to, I can extrapolate the results.

I kinda wanted white, but figured it was two bright.

Mine is yellow back lit, although I use it on the lowest setting, I could tolerate the 2nd lowest and maybe the 3rd if the room was a little brighter.

So I would think you could tolerate yellow, green or even red better, although they can still get pretty intense, just not as harsh as blue or white.

Hopefully that helps in your decision, if it is acceptable on 1 and you like the colour then keep it, cause they are all bright at higher levels, which is needed in bright rooms.

If you find the lowest level to be even slightly uncomfortable, then I would get a different colour.

I was thinking about getting a cherry red switch ducky, but I'm not quite sure how I will like it coming from these blue switches.

I have a Ducky Shine 2 with Pink/Purple LEDs and blue switches and my wife as the Corsair K90 with Reds. From the little bit I've used her board since I've gotten my Ducky I can tell they're lighter and the linear feelings rather noticeable to me. I'd have to try using it some more but at this moment I'm more inclined to stick with blues and look into exploring browns and greens than I am to want reds or blacks.

I have the blue LED with brown switches and on the lowest setting is bright enough for me as well - even when the room is bright.

The 2nd lowest setting is already a bit too harsh imo and for the brightest setting (5/5) you definitely need sunglasses

I'm really considering the brown switches over the blue as I don't know if I like the clicky feel to them, I don't mind applying a little pressure. Do you use the ghosting by chance where the key lights up when you hit it, instead of having them always on? My current keyboard only has off/on, and WASD gaming mode so I rarely look at the keyboard anyway. I really like the look of the Ducky Shine 2 over other keyboards.

Exactly like my experience with red LEDs. I usually turn it to the brightest setting when I get flashbanged in games to make the effect more realistic.thumb.gif

I own the purple/pink leds and I always have them on the brightest setting regardless of how bright it is in my room already. I guess I just like being blinded by this beautiful keyboard. smile.gif
post #620 of 931
I just noticed something odd with my shine 2. When the leds are on the brightest setting it makes high pitched sound similiar to the sound many MX518 mouse make. Is this usual or is my keyboard unigue? It is not that loud as I have to rest my head on the keyboard to hear it. Don't ask how I discovered this. biggrin.gif
