Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 78

post #771 of 931
Do you know if Ducky have any multi led color ones ie. u can change the color of the led to a diff color rather than having just one static color? Like their Shine 2 model? I know most of them only have 1 led color

Also, aren't other mechanical keyboards from Corsair, Das, Filco, etc have pretty good quality too? So why Ducky?

Like is it just the lighting effect that you guys are raving about it on OCN forums?

I liked the build quality and rave reviews, and the shine II has the memory so you don't lose the backlight settings after shutting down. Oh, I was also convinced when it turned out to be the official OCN choice for the custom keyboard order, and it has white LEDs.

Gotta say, I'm soooo chuffed with mine, it's really nice. I can't compare with other keyboards since I've never owned any other mechanicals so other ones might be just as good.

I purchased a Vortex Limited with aluminum casing after getting my white LED Ducky Shine 2, I got them both in Red switches. The Vortex only came in green or orange so I soldered white LEDs. And, I have to say I prefer the Ducky. I did an o-ring mod on both of them but the Ducky just feels better. I guess it's the steel deck on the Ducky and how the switches are mounted versus straight to the PCB.

They're stiffer than the rest of the board and it throws me off. I can't find my key puller or I would pop them off and see what the deal is.

Overall, I like the illumination of the Ducky but in terms of feel and CLACKITY-CLACK, I think I prefer the CM Storm. It's looser and noisier. More satisfying to pound. I wish I could combine the two.

The Ducky and some other brands used the Cherry branded style for Space bar, Shift, etc. The Cooler master Quickfire (Rapid, TK, Pro) use the CSI style for the Space bar and Shift keys. If you pop them opened, you will see the differences. The only keyboard from Cooler master that uses the Cherry style for space bar is the Storm Trigger. I tried both the Storm Trigger and Quickfire Pro and I couldn't stand the Space bar on the Storm trigger cause of the Cherry style whic is not as responsive as the CSI style. So I returned the Storm Trigger and right now I'm using the Quickfire Pro.

The only thing that will keep me from buying a Ducky Shine 2 is the Cherry style space bar + shift. I have no idea why it's not as responsive as the other style.

Whats everyone's favorite switch? I was going to get the red but now I'm thinking of getting the blue.

I've been thinking of getting this keyboard, the blue key switches caught my attention, because the blue back light looked amazing.

Personally I'm mixed. I like the reds for gaming and blues for typing. I don't know why. I have the orbweaver and it has blues and its just fine for gaming, but on the keyboard trying the blackwidow, it felt a bit less responsive sometimes when you start mashing the keys because of the double-travel (travel to the actuation point, and than there is the bump for the actual activation).
The only issue I have with the blues is when I'm trying a lot, its really loud if you compare it to a "conventional" keyboard.

I just ordered two, brown (because they are more similar to the blue) and red. I'm going to try both to type and game, and the one I decide not to keep I'm giving to my brother.

If you write more than mashing the keyboard in a game, and don't mind a bit of a loudy keyboard, get the blues. They feel great for typing and in general.
