post #841 of 1986
almost sounds like the pcb delaminated a bit. I'm sorry but I strongly suggest a return. up to you if you want to give them a chance to deliver a working deck or try to source one out elsewhere. what kind of switches and led's did you want?

Well this one has brown switches and red leds, I made a ticket with RMA but waiting for a response. Not sure if I just want to refund or have them just send me a new one. Guess it depends if they have any in stock right now.

So I'm looking to get another mechanical keyboard with red switches and I've decided on Ducky. But before I fire away I just wanted to confirm what the difference between these two units are.

http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=553

vs.

http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=217

From what I can gather the only difference is that the DK9087G2 Pro is non-backlit while the Shine 3 is of course backlit. Ultimately I do not care for LED back lights too much since I plan on replacing the key-caps with PBT ones, and as far as I'm aware there are not any PBT key-caps that allow light to pass through from LED's? So if only the only difference is the LED's then that would explain the difference in price for otherwise the same board?

Thanks in advance guys!

That is indeed the only real difference If you plan to swap the keys with pbt caps, why not pick up a ducky premier?

Warning: ncix rant (Click to show)
I purchased a ds3 from them when they were still new and waited for a month for them to update the status before I finally started a ruckus. I asked them what the problem was and they said they couldn't send anything to my address. bewildered, I just asked to cancel the order and refund my payment, which took another week to complete. I will never do business with them again after that.

edit: nice gregaroon!

Thanks! I am very excited! If I do see any Ducky keyboards there, I will do my best to take some pictures and post them here. Otherwise, for other pictures of Pax East, I think I will post them on the Pax East Discussion thread I made, link in my sig.

The Shine 3 has a 1000Hz polling rate, which I don't think the G2 Pro has (not that you may care). I could be wrong about that though. The Shine 3 is better compatible with a Mac then the G2 Pro from what I've heard. Maybe it's been fixed. The Shine 3 has NKRO automatically enabled whereas the G2 Pro has a DIP switch to turn it on or off. The Shine 3 has USB acceleration and I'm not sure if the G2 Pro does.

I have the Shine 3 Yellow Edition and the PBT keycaps do sort of allow light to pass through, so it's possible there are keycaps that allow it.

Do you guys find that you type faster or slower on mx blues and should i be trying to type faster or just more precise? Finding Blues to require alot more effort to type on.
post #850 of 1986
I typically type faster on blues since I have audible feedback to indicate a successful key press, but switches are different for everyone and very subjective.
