So far I have two options in mind, the Ducky Shine II DK9008S2
and the CM Storm Trigger
The CM have a great price, so I tempted to just go for it.
What do you think ? Is the CM good bargain ?
I would go the Ducky Shine II over the CM Storm Trigger as a preference as I've heard nothing wrong with the Trigger I'm aware of. I had the same choice just recently looking for browns and decided in the end to go with Logitech G710+
over the Ducky. For me it boiled down to a few extra features I personally liked with the G710+ and Logitech's indisputable confidence in customer support for my decision.
It's built as solid as a tank as any good mechanical keyboard. Cherry MX Brown switches with O-rings for a little extra noise dampening. I feel it's one of the quietest mechanical keyboards without having to put O-rings on yourself. I purchased mine on release day and it's working like a charm and I'm a bit heavy typist so it's taking a beating and it feels great.Benchmark Reviews
It has that gamer touch with orange macro border that might not be for some people and honestly it's the only drawback if any with this keyboard. I paired mine with an awesome mouse that matches the keyboard with the Steel Series Sensei Fnatic
mouse to bring it all together.
It's also the first keyboard I've seen on the market to come out with the new Windows 8 sqaure windows logo on the windows key.
