Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 67

post #661 of 931
sorry to ask such a vague question, but what make the Ducky II keyboard so good? I see everyone loves them, but why? I currently have a logitech G15, and am looking at upgrading my keyboard.

Many brands boast about low response times for their keyboards. From what ive seen Ducky is not mentioning response time in their product info. Surely Ducky keyboards have the same low response times as certain other keyboards though?

Yup, all Ducky Shine 2's have detachable cords. The side that attaches to the keyboard is micro USB, I believe.Not too sure about response time, but from my experience, it's quick enough. Not sure what to compare it tooooo.... but other keyboards are highly aimed at gamers and try to lure them in with those stats.

It's very high quality. Everything just feels solid and is one of the nicer LED mechanical keyboards out there. Also, I believe there's only a few LED mechanical keyboards out there, and Ducky seems to have most of the wanted features with the exception of a few like USB/audio pass throughs... Other than that, it's beautiful due to its simple design and I can't remember what else made me want one... xD

Simply put, mechanical keyboards are just nicer to type on. Every key takes the exact same amount of force to actuate and it actuates at exactly the same position in the keypress every time.

Unlike standard rubber dome keyboards (G15 included), they don't wear out either (in any reasonable amount of time). Mine took about a week or so to wear in, but it feels the exact same as it did once that period was over.

If you haven't tried a mechanical keyboard, I'd head to Best Buy or your local store that might have some on display and give one a try. Best Buy usually has the Razer keyboards on display. The Razer Blackwidow Ultimate has Cherry Blue switches (very clicky) and the Blackwidow Ultimate Stealth has Cherry Brown switches (you can feel the actuation, but it isn't exceptionally loud).

They have the exact ducky I want. Is it a safe place to buy and is shipping expensive to usa?

edit: never mind it only has the chinese key option. :/

I was able to choose English on the drop down. Shipping is only $10 to the US.

As for a safe place to buy... Kip was the one that suggested it! Hopefully he can weigh in here.

MechanicalKeyboards.com/TigerImports.com will have a restock soon. Should be very soon...
post #669 of 931
I regret getting mine with blue leds, definitely not as clear as white leds but still beautiful. But the keyboard is absolutely beautiful. Do blue leds really damage your eyes?

Also is it just me or is the backlighting uneven on the lowest brightness setting for the keys Q, Pause, PgUp and PgDn?

Why would you think that?
