Ducky G2 PRO: Are These MX Clears?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have an opportunity to buy a Ducky G2 Pro keyboard, but the seller has not listed which MX color it is. He didn't know what I was talking about when I asked him about it. Since he just sells second hand products, I'm not really all that surprised. I only have one picture, but will soon be getting more later today. What color switch do you guys think this is? It looks clear to me, but I'm not really sure.

I wasn't aware Cherry MX Clears existed..
I think they look like they are MX Blacks



Cherry MX Clears look like they are frosted, not infact clear:

Oh wow, clears look white. The lighting in the picture really messes with the color. I'm starting to think they're black now too.

Take a better pic dude. The flash reflecting of that makes it looks like anything but clear.
APU what?

I also think the flash distorts the colour too much.. Blacks are pretty common 'gaming' keyboard keys though, and with the red WADS caps, I'd guess they're black smile.gif

Also, this review says that the G2 Pro lacks back lighting, but your picture shows an LED above the switch.

Maybe it's a second revision?

Glad we could help! Sounds like a nice keyboard.
