Yep, that had me scratching my head, how can a BWU 2013 be cheaper than a K70? In my neck of the woods, a BWU 2013 cost just 5-8USD less than a Topre Type Heaven.....needless to say, we know which would be a better buy. Heck, the BWU 2013 cost more than a Ducky Shine 3, about as much as a DECK Hassium.......totally not worth the price. I don't see how a BWU 2013 could cost less than a K70.....

@xmentaWhat do yu mean by "try to find common keyboards (not like Ducky Shine)?". I don't get this.....your friend has something against Ducky? Or, is it hard to come by in your neck of the woods?

Yeah, Ducky make outstanding keyboards, hence my confusion at OP's reticence. I myself have seven Ducky keyboards.....I've come across posts by people who had the Razer BW/BWU/BWTE, but they made the jump to a Ducky and never looked back. Now, I've yet to come across someone who had done the opposite.....wink.gif

Have they improved much from the original ducky shine? I am not that big of a fan of the one I currently have, doesn't have that proper solid/premium feel (filco's/das appear better, no backlight but I am okay with that).
