Ducky Shine 5 to Corsair K95 Platinum?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Having used 2 or 3 previous shine keyboards im not a fan of the recent shine 6. So ive been looking into different keyboards, and of course this corsair came up.

have any of you made the switch from ducky to corsair keyboards?

how is the build quality?

i have beeen mx browns on all my keyboards, would cherry mx speeds be any good?

what keys do the macro keys map to?

can i customize a button (not the side macro keys) to functions like calculator?

how well built are the stands?

how is the brightness compared to the ducky?

also, are floating keycaps any good? (like on the shine 6)

Build quality of corsair is fine, but if you want to take it apart expect pain.
MX Speeds are linear 1.2mm actuation (vs regular 2.0mm), so they will register quicker and wont have the bump like your browns do.
Macro keys do whatever you want, can be programmed to type a string of text or open a program
Yes, the whole keyboard is programmable
The stands on my K70 are strong, but I don't use them.
Can't comment on brightness, but it should be similar.
Floating keycaps feel the same, it's more about looks.
