But I'll say I do like PCB mounted cherry stablizers more than plate mounted cherry stablizers.

never had cherry stabs (mine im modding has costar, was thinking about mod the stabs too), but they look they work just better, especially when removing keys for cleaning, and also no more that metallic noise that feels like theres some loose screw, personal ofc...

This so much - I know this is only driving me crazy and doesn't affect the boards' performance (and can be limited by the use of grease) but the rattle is something I don't miss at using the Shine 3.

do you think it's possible to replace my costar with cherry stabilizers without making any physical mod to the metallic plate (i have a qpad mk80)

I don't really have a preference between Costar and Cherry. I own 10 keyboards and most use Costar. I prefer Cherry for keycap switching, but otherwise I have no major complaint about either one. They feel pretty much the same to me.

I don't usually hear the metallic sound from Costar stabs, it's usually the metal plate that pings.

Hello there.

Just wondering if someone could help me out. I just bought this ducky
From what I have heard, ducky is a really good/popular brand for mech keyboards; however this model is not in the reccomended list on this thread (though the ducky shine 3 is. Whats the difference exactly besides price and some software-side lighting gimicks?)
Just need to know if there is any reason I should back out on this purchase. I believe I have untill monday to cancel it if needed.

EDIT: OH! I guess I should mention that this is my first mechanical keyboard and I have little to no experience with them.
I tried a few (very very few...) in a local computer store and I preffered the blues over the brown, red and razor switches. I have a feeling I may have liked green a tad more, but I don't feel its worth the extra 30~$ for a stab in the dark, just incase they have too much actuation resistance.

that ducky is fine, there is nothing bad about it. people just prefer the lighting features the ds3 has.
