Ok. Is there a Felco variety that is backlit?

Not yet. Again, that's the main reason I wound up choosing a Ducky is because I felt it was a quality board that had available backlighting. If you don't need the leds, then certainly a Filco is a great quality board, as are some other brands.
Sometimes I wish I didn't want the lighting, as that would expand my options to include such boards as the Filcos, etc.
So you should carefully decide if you really need a backlit board, or not!

Ah, but is there news that Filco will be going with the backlit route? I definitely need a keyboard with a led backlight smile.gif

Not that I am aware of.
They do have some cool options like different colored keyboard plates, and key caps:

Edit:
One of the advantages of a non-backlit board is the availability of custom replacement key caps, if you're into that. The choices are endless.
With a key like Ducky's Shine boards have, the back lighting only works properly with their replacement keys, which are limited and hard to obtain.

As for NKRO, this explains it better than I can:

I don't need the ability to press multiple keys simultaneously, but some do.

Thanks. Regarding the #KRO, what instance does one need the NKRO spec?
post #66 of 73
I think 6KRO would be enough for anyone, but having NKRO is a nice assurance that no combination will get blocked. Moreover, it's somewhat indicative of the quality of the circuitry. If they give each key its own circuit, they aren't looking to skimp in that regard, at least.

Ok. So theoretically, there is no time that you need more than 6KRO?

Well, for a typical FPS, at least, you're going to be (simultaneously) using no more than two directional keys, the space bar, shift, and maybe control. I wouldn't worry about it; think about all the times you've had trouble with keyboards not reading your input: probably none. My laptop has an exceptionally badly designed matrix (I can't use the '2' key when I'm holding the space bar), but other than that, I've never had troubles even with the cheapest membrane keyboard. 6KRO is good, NKRO is probably overkill, but it's a nice sentiment.

I love my ducky YOTD reds . Just need a OCN key cap. I needed the back light key as I game mostly in dark/ surf OCN . Also if you don't know what keys to get look at wasdkeyboards and they have a sample pack of all switchs and rubber washer for the keys . Good luck with the hunting .

What is the difference between the Duck YOTD and 9087S2?
