Torn between two keyboards

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Alright guys im torn between two mech keyboards that im just going to buy :/
its the mionix zibal 60 and the ducky shine 2
idk why but my instinct tell me to go ducky since they make quality productst but then i find its "presentation" lacking for its price. example the accesories its come, the box itself, no braids on the wires; do you really think its worth it?

whilst the zibal 60 has great presentation with it braided wire, good accesories that comes with it, great box. It just makes you feel that you bought something with that amout of money. Thing is i heard some negative feedback about the quality of keyboard :/

can you guys enlighten me to choosing which one?


i have other brands on my list like the das,deck,filco,max keyboard but those arent available in my country frown.gif

I would never get a bad quality product only because it comes in a great box with lots of accessories.

Very good point... which is why I would go with the Ducky Shine 2. I love Ducky keyboards, and they are high quality boards. I have recommended the Ducky Shine/ Ducky YOTD to several people on this forum, and many of them have chosen to go with Ducky.

surely agree with you! just that i was confused about it :/
so would you mean to say that shine 2 is a far superior product than a zibal 60?

I have a ducky 1087 w/blues and it's fantastic. I don't get the obsession over a box and a bunch of accessories you'll likely never use. Go with the better quality product.

What accessories are they even offering in this shiny box with pretty pictures that's catching your attention ?

According to newegg in the list of product features for the mionix board it include "Rage Proof Durability"

Lol !

I would say so, yes...

I am awaiting a confirmation for my pre-order of a Ducky YOTD that I am trying to buy. Now a YOTD isn't a Shine 2, but they're similar products and I'm sure both are equally high quality.

Isn't the Zibal 60 made by Costar? It's basically a WASD/Meka G1 with green backlighting. The only problem was the keycaps fade but you can get replacement keycaps from mionix for free that won't fade.

Yes, in that case go with the Shine. Great board, I'm sure you'll be happy with it.
