What is the difference between the shine ii and 2108s zero?

The 2108S doesn't have the same level of backlighting functionality as the Shine 2 and it doesn't have media keys IIRC.

It is essentially a ducky zero keyboard(~78-84$) but with backlighting. On a side note, if ducky shine 2 was an option, it will later be replaced by ducky shine 3. How 3 looks like no one knows yet. There's a pretty good chance that it should be displayed at computex 2 weeks from now since their poster deemed so.

Ok. So there's no ETA yet for the shine 3? If it is shown in computex two weeks from now, will it be available in the market right away?

They haven't mentioned it yet AFAIK so I wouldn't imagine it will be available for some time.

If it does get shown at Computex then I would imagine it would be a few weeks before it's available depending on where you live.

Ok. Do you think the shine 2 is a great keyboard anyway?

I haven't got one personally, but it's one of the most frequently bought and from what I recall, almost universally recommended by those who have them.

Found a retailer who sells ducky board , the ducky shine 2 is priced at 170 euros with a wireless headset as a gift , might as well save up for that!
