Here is my issue:
I've had my Ducky Shine 2 for a few weeks now and lately I've had an issue where only certain LEDs light up. the F2, F6, F9, F12, Pause, Tab, W, R, Y, I P, ], Del, PgDn, 7 (keypad), 9 (keypad), and left Win key are lit up, but no other ones. If I unplug the keyboard and plug it back in, they all work as they should, but after a few minutes, only these keys will light up and all the rest of them go dark and don't respond when I try to change the LED setting.

Does anyone know what the issue could be? Everything else on the keyboard works great, but the LED issue is happening more and more and is starting to make me mad. I really don't feel like RMAing it back to Taiwan, so any suggestions would be great.

Thanks.
I just checked your other post as well.
I'm stumped, that is really a strange issue.
However, you may not have to send the board back to Taiwan.

Thanks for the info. I emailed MechanicalKeyboards last night, so now I'm just waiting to hear back from them. I'll let you know what they say.

So I heard back from MechanicalKeyboards.com and they do handle all RMAs for Ducky in the United States, so if you need to have an RMA, just go to their site, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page and they will get the process started for you.

Thanks for verifying that. It's good to have a US-based warranty depot for the Ducky boards.
Now you'll be able to get your board fixed or replaced under warranty through them. Let us know how it goes, and when you have a fully functioning Ducky board!thumb.gif

Hello guys. I'm going to buy my first mechanical keyboard and I'm torn between Ducky Zero and Ducky Shine 2.

Ducky Zero = $75
Ducky Shine 2 = $150

You see, I can buy 2 Zero instead of Shine 2. What bugging me is I'm really not confident to buy a $150 keyboard but the Shine 2 green LEDs are so tempting! There's also CM Storm Quickfire TK for $100 but I don't want the layout of the numpad and I'm not a fan of white LED.

So what do you guys think?

I will say this, if you don’t want a TKL board, don’t go for the TK. I thought I would like the smaller form factor and still having all the keys, but I found that I spent a LOT of time toggling the NumLock and it drove me crazy. Ultimately, I had the board for 7 days before I decided to get rid of it. As I ordered it from Newegg, and they have a 15% restocking fee, plus I would have had to pay the shipping back to them, I would have lost about $25 (1/3 of the price) to return it, so I posted on OCN and ended up trading it for a CM Storm Quickfire Pro with MX Browns, which I now have at work and absolutely love.

I actually ended up getting a Ducky Shine 2 with MX Blues and orange backlighting for home, which I absolutely love! Sadly, I’m having to RMA it due to an LED issue, but from what I’ve found talking on here with people, that is not a common problem at all (actually, I haven’t been able to find another user who has had an LED issue).

While I would certainly suggest the Shine 2, it is a really great keyboard, if you need 2, I would go with the Zero, like you said, you can get 2 of those for the price of 1 Shine 2. However, if you only need one, and you can afford the Shine 2, you will not be disappointed with it.

^ I don't need 2 keyboards, I'm just saying that I payed double for a LED backlit which is expensive. Thanks for your opinions about the CM TK, now its really out of my list. I also want to buy an SSD for my laptop that's why I'm hesitating to spend $150 for a keyboard. If the budget persist then I'm gonna buy it both at the same time. But if I will go with the Zero, ($75 + $125 SSD) I can buy both for $200 but without the LEDs I'm thinking that it'll not be so special at all. Will post again here if I make my purchase. Thanks!

If they release a black aluminum one I'm definitely getting one. Other than that, not really seeing much that's making me want to upgrade from the DK9087... Although I wanted one with blue LEDs so I guess now's the time to get another one.

Looks like a specialty product, very limited stock at tiger imports, nothing on Amazon. What's the purpose of a keyboard that blinks by itself or does a "snake"? Looks cheesy.
