any one try the nature whites can compare to browns?
post #1802 of 1979
Can't compare a rather heavy linear switch to a light tactile switch.
Browns are just reds with a tactile bump (that makes it much better to type on and also good to game on, as you won't accidentally press the keys by resting fingers lightly on the keys, unless you're heavy handed). Nature Whites feel more like "miniature linear greys" when they're new, than MX blacks. They feel heavier than the worn in MX blacks on the ducky shine fire 69 (17 nickels to depress fully on nature white, 16 nickels on MX blacks). And I always wanted to try a linear grey keyboard now I have the next best thing.

Nature Whites are significantly better than *REDS*, though. When I had a MX Red K70, I would always accidentally depress keys when I didn't want to and that was a serious problem, which is why I switched to MX Browns to solve that.

I'd prefer a MX Brown RGB to a nature white RGB if that was the only keyboard available for day to day usage, but it's just fine to game on. MX Clears would be better to type on overall for a daily keyboard but no MX clear RGB's exist.

That being said, Linear Greys barely depress down at all even with 16 nickels stacked. Barely.

4 of my Ducky Shine ANSI k-boards are bought here: https://www.google.se/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjU9pqR2o3KAhUJ9HIKHYpDBsgQFgg9MAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fmechanicalkeyboards.com%2F&usg=AFQjCNGyHMEQYRYUd3K4x4ztjLQ9SQ5VrQ




As I'm livin in sweden we use the ISO/Nordic layout k-boards but it is a hell to find good lookin ISO/Nordic keycaps sets.

So I bought my first ANSI k-board from Mechanicalkeyboards.com 2014, a Ducky Shine 3 Cherry MX Red with white LEDs.



Not a Ducky Shine 5 but my Ducky RGB Year Of The Goat, Cherry MX Black bought (pre-order) from Mechaincalkeyboards.com.



The board has not the Shine 4/5 case, it has the Ducky One case.

I've decided to get myself a Ducky KB but am a bit undecided on which one to go for. The Shine 5 being the latest model seems tempting but I am not into the RGB lightning (lightning in general is something that has no priority whatsoever to me but I also don't mind if the KB comes with it), so I kind of not want to pay the extra in comparison to other ducky offerings.

I am currently torn in between the Legend and the One.
The Legend is on sale. I could get it for 20 Euro extra in comparison to the One and the aluminum plate looks slick.
The One on the other side seems to be the only one that carries ABS double shot keycaps (excluding the Shine 5) which sound like a great solution to minimize wear - then again how much of an improvement in comparison to the default Ducky ones are they actually in day to day use?

Would be great if you could help me in making the decision.

You can buy the abs doubleshot keycaps directly. You don't have to buy the One just because it comes with them.

Are we talkin ANSI or ISO layout?


The ISO layout is a hell to find good lookin keycaps sets to, if you gonna change the keycaps, have some Ducky Shine 2/3 boards with the ISO/Nordic layout.

I also have some Ducky ANSI boards, Shine 3/4 but I don't like the "Bigfoot" case on the Shine 4/5 boards.


You can turn off the LEDs if you don't want to use it, on my Ducky Year Of The Goat RGB (only in white Ducky One case) board I can use one single color (FN + F9) or use the RGB LED (FN + F10), so it must be the same on the Shine 5 RGB boards.
