Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 65

post #641 of 931
I just recently made a new account to reply to this. In November I picked up the Deathstalker by Razer... I know... It wasn't until two weeks into owning it I decided to return it for the Black Widow Ultimate.

Honestly, how the hell does Razer get away with marketing a Blue MX switch as a gaming switch. Well, I used that for awhile and around the end of December I began looking at threads here about Mechanical keyboards and pulled the trigger on a Ducky Shine 2 with the Red switches and white LEDs (along with the Ducky wrist-pad).

First off, it was a b*tch to find the exact one in stock! If, your eyeing one down just wait for it to come in like I did! It's worth it, even if it takes a week or two.

Now, I've looked at many reviews, whether here or youtube. NONE of the pictures do it justice! This is what I couldn't find from reviews:

1) The finish of the keyboard is more of matte type, it's not coated rubber, but it has that great feel and look. And, no it does not get dirty! All of you who own one know what I'm talking about but no one discusses it once they buy it for other users. Or, we just forget! It's just plain awesome in person.

2) The Blue MX switch clack... I personally hated it for gaming on my Blackwidow. The keys, even for my red switch, have a very pronounced sound on my Ducky that you couldn't catch from youtube videos. I really don't know why people complain looking for something even louder that doesn't perform as well compared to black/red or a brown if you really want that "feel".

I just got my Shine2 and it looks like the leds are not working? Is there some trick to get them on because fn+f10 does not do anything. The led turns on for caps/scroll lock when i put them on and that's it...

On my Ducky it's Fn + F9... but mines just a G2 Pro. Are you trying from within Windows? Mine don't work in the BIOS.

I had to plug mine in a few times and reboot to get Win7 to see it properly. I might have had to do it for the back lighting as well I can't rememb er though. I know hitting FN+F10 cycles through the various modes.

as someone who never learned how to type correctly, i found the reds to be too easy to make typos on so i returned it. just got my shine ii with browns and blue leds, and i'm finding it's MUCH better to type on. i wonder if the blues would help my typing speed/accuracy even more...

I have been using blues for about a month now and haven't tried browns yet. This is what I understand based on feedback from others on here that have worked with both.
Blues from what I understand are slightly stiffer than browns and have a more noticeable tactile response. There is also a distinct click sound at actuation before you get to the clack of bottoming the keys out. If you learn to type lightly enough you just get the click and avoid the clack all together. I'm still trying to get there personally.
