Duck German RGB TKL keyboard convert to UK.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
If I was to purchase a German Ducky TKL MX Red RGB keyboard from Germany then fit UK keycaps all should be well? I presume that the Ducky keyboard would be ISO? The problem is I need an rgb tkl keyboard with mx reds and over here in the UK there is lack of them. Only one I can see with a standard key layout is the Asus Claymore but I am not keen on the casing and Corsairs do not have a standard bottom row key layout.

German and UK ISO are the same as far as keycap size goes but some alpha keys are in different positions which I'm not sure if you can re-program the Ducky or not (never had one myself)

I remember a while ago I purchased a Filco Ninja from the keyboard company and at the time they had no UK stock, so they supplied me with a French version but just swapped the caps to UK ISO. ISO key boards are supposed to have the same size caps no matter what European county they are from so I would have thought that just swapping the caps to UK as windows determines the set language?.

I can confirm that this is how it would work. Did it actually the other way around.

Since the One TKL was released in EU ISO DE version only lately, I imported the (ISO UK) version from GB some time ago and replaced the UK keys by a set of German QWERTZ ISO DE ones.
