If you're referring to the Year of the Dragon model. It's a limited edition version that's essentially a Shine II Ten Keyless model with some special key caps, additional lighting modes, and some additional art on the keyboard housing.

That is where i"m taking the keyboard from, i realised it not 190 dolars but 164, so not extremly expensive. I think i"ll go with a mx blue white backlight model.

I have the shine 2, white led, brown switch and the purples keycaps.
overall I'm happy with it.
If you are looking for backlight, I think shine 2 is a pretty solid choice
(not as if there are alot of choices to begin with biggrin.gif).

The extra macro key are kinda useless to some, but you can always remap it to something else smile.gif

Also a large wrist rest will helps too, currently I'm using this

Great, but i"m sorry what do you mean purple keycaps? And i didn"t think it has any macro keyes. Does it? The most important thing to me is build quallity and endurance. Filco/ducky/das seem to be a lot better in that segment than most gaming brands.

I have a Ducky Shine with White LEDs. Do you still need someone to post a picture or are you fine?

I chose red switches because it's seemed like a good balance for typing(easy to press) and doesn't actuate or click which makes it good for gaming. In person, it looks fantastic. I use it on the lowest brightness. The highest brightness mode is so bright I can't read the keys they are so blinding. Even from across the room(at night), It felt like I had a hundred small lighthouses on my desk(at brightness, I turn it off at night). Opposed to other colors I think it is the classiest. When I first got it I'd make a lot of minor typos but after a week or so with it I type maybe 5-10wpm faster than on my former Logitech G110 cell-membrane keyboard with much less fatigue. I haven't gotten around to buying o-rings yet so I can't comment on that.

In all honestly, the deciding factor was that I got it for sale on the marketplace for roughly $100 in great condition, haha.

I'll post pictures in a moment...
