I pre-ordered a Shine 3, YOTS didn't seem worth it since the only difference was the aluminum frame and Mandarin symbols above the cursor. I did look at a K95 as well but the Shine 3 gives you so many more options. Obviously, the aesthetics on the K95 and macro keys are tempting. But, the lighting and switch options win out with the Shine 3.

Im kind of in that dilemma as well. Want the YOTS edition but a normal Shine 3 or K95 is quite a bit cheaper.
Any suggestions? Do you guys think its worth it?

I'm still deciding whether to order... the Yots or the normal version and above are undecided between red and brown switches

Buy this to see which switch you like:

And then decide whether it's worth $70 extra for aluminum.

I wonder if it wouldn't be too hard to install your own aluminum front panel? I should look into that.

Look at this review of the ducky zero he shows how easy it is to take off the front plate, I am going to try to make a metal front plate for one of my keyboards.

This sampler kit is a great idea. I would have skipped the MX black keyboard if I had tested; MX Brown is closest to that old IBM feel. I'm still debating buying O-rings for one or more of my keyboards. Maybe buy one set and use it just for the typing-key subset.

As far as aluminum goes, there is no functional advantage to it. It's only for looks. It's for the special machine you built in a Lian Li case that stayed (or will stay) a favorite long past Ivy, Haswell, whatever ... And it is absolutely unique. Yes you can program an EDM machine to carve a top shell out of aluminum, titanium, wood veneers ... but there's only one Year of the Snake edition,

Aside from the long-term collector's view, you might also consider "rewarding" Ducky for producing an artisan product!

Finally, look at the future of computing. Maybe we'll be using touch screens, but I doubt it. We're far more likely to have iimited hand gesturing like the Xbox Kinect. However, there's a problem adding another device to most desktops, and so this means the product is going to have to attach, either to the monitor or to the keyboard. A Ducky keyboard can be designed "tenkeyless" and have sufficient physical real estate to hold one or two cameras plus a gyroscope, maybe sensors to detect metal finger rings for a 3D input.

All this can be helped by your keyboard selection today, and your decision to help make Ducky a more prosperous company. smile.gif
