(Sorry for thread Hijack) I'm seriously considering buying that board. But whats the difference between this and the Shine II besides the numpad. Does it happen to have a removable USB cable.

Edit---

Screw it im sold. Buying it.

I need a new keyboard and want to go with a mechanical one. I want the Ducky Shine II, but damn I hate waiting for things frown.gif

If you don't want to wait then get a Filco/ WASD.

Custom coloured keycaps beats backlit keys every time.

I'm looking at the Gigabyte Aivia Osmium keyboard actually in my impatience. I really do want one with back lighting, and Cherry Red switches, without too many knobs and bobbles on it. That Gigabyte has 5 extra macro buttons and some scroll wheels, so it isn't too far from a standard keyboard. That one just scares me though, because without the wrist rest (which I hate those things), the front of it doesn't look very comfortable frown.gif

It's removable and you could buy a good one separately.

So far I haven't seen any wrist rests that are any good, too many of them use those annoying clips to attach to the board that break really easily.

if you want a better wrist rest, look at the Logitech K90, the wrist rest is very securely connected (see the first page for the unboxing video) and if you dont mind cherry MX brown switches, look into the CM Storm Trigger, i was looking into these as well and i like the Storm trigger the best (its wrist rest seems solid as well)
