Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 9

post #81 of 931
As you say, different strokes for different folks. You're correct in that there is no keyboard that fulfills every single purpose out there (frankly that'd be awesome and sick all the while), all of them have niggling issues here or there. To me, Deck's aesthetics kill it even if it were $50 cheaper, (that's just me). But mechanically they are pretty awesome. I personally paid about $160 altogether for PBT keycaps + a Das keyboard. Depending on how we value things, I'm pretty sure it'd come out near the same price wise. No one is stopping you from picking the deck, but at $190 and it looking how it is, I guess it's a tad polarizing, which might be why people haven't really reviewed it

I totally understand. I also appreciate your feedback. I didn't mean to de-rail the conversation from the Ducky Shine 2. I quite like it, otherwise I wouldn't have made it to this thread. I'm just a bit skeptical about the ABS keycaps. I actually owned a Das and keys started getting shiny after just a couple of weeks of use. Although I loved the Das, I ended up returning it because I didn't believe that a keyboard for that much money should start getting shiny keys so quickly. I mean, my rubber dome keyboard has ABS keycaps and didn't develop shine that quickly. I wonder if it were premature or something that happens so quickly on all ABS keycaps, including the Ducky Shine.

Could be. I'm not doubting it's quality since I've never used it and have heard nothing but great things about it's build and quality, but I'm just speaking about the way it looks.

If someone who didn't know anything about mechanical keyboards had it placed in front of them next to other boards like the Razer black widow and the Ducky shine and asked to pick out the best one, they wouldn't pick the Deck Legend, even though it may be the best one. It just isn't very pleasing to the eyes.

Still, a company that uses cherry clears deserves all the accolades it can get, since really no other companies do.

I have nothing against the Deck Legend other than I don't find it to be very easy on the eyes. I'd spend my life writing the next great American novel on it, but I wouldn't want to have a one-night stand with it during an intense and passionate session of Diablo III.

I was in a similar situation. I bought the Rosewill brown switch when it was on sale for my gf. Then found out about the DS2 the next day so I ended up returning that Rosewill. So a month from now, I'll give her my current Shine and I get the new one biggrin.gif

Are there any Ducky Shine's with cherry blues or browns and blue LED backlighting available anywhere? Everywhere I look it's out of stock. There's Year of the Dragon but I don't want a TKL board.

If I had the cash, that'd be the first KB I would but. Ugh. Broke-ness.

Imagine saving up and actually having the cash, but the board you have saved for is out of stock because a newer model is coming out but nobody knows when that newer model is coming out.

Basically hurry up and wait for me. mad.gif

I hope so. I had heard anywhere from mid August to late September. Was hoping early August, but it appears it will be late September.
