Very nice.

I think I've decided on a Ducky Shine II with Browns and white or red LEDS.

Well when they are back in stock.

After much reading and hating on my Razer Black Widow I pulled the trigger on a Ducky Shine with MX Red's.

MUCH better than the Black Widow and its MX Blues for me. Quiter and much more predictable activation.

However the left shift, win, and alt keys have a scraping sound when depressing them and the win key sometimes gets stuck. The space bar when pressed from the left side and center also sounds/feels this way but on the right side its fine. Every other key on the keyboard is perfect. When I pull off the key caps the switch itself feels fine but I put the key cap back on and its scraping and sticky again.

Anyone have any ideas or a fix I could do? After dropping $170 CAD (plus $17 over the border) I would hate to have to return it.

I always wanted a mechanical kb ever since I saw one and am about to buy one but I can't decide between blue's or browns, I game a lot and type a lot, these are the two I'm looking at: http://www.tankguys.com/mechnical-keyboards/cherry-mx-blue-switches/ducky-keyboard-mx-overclock-net-edition-blue-abs-2.html
http://www.tankguys.com/mechnical-keyboards/cherry-mx-brown-switches/ducky-keyboard-mx-overclock-net-edition-brown-abs-1.html
which one should I pick I'm so conflicted lol?
Edit: ordered the mx browns one, hopefully the right choice biggrin.gif

Take the caps off and press the switches down, do the switches also scrape?

It probably needs some lube. if you have a silicon grease or nonconducting lube, that would probably help. Or o-rings may help too.

As it says in my original post. Taking the key caps off the switches themselves feel fine. They do not scrape and pop back properly.

Did not see that part *headdesk*.

I was going to suggest sanding the edge of the caps down slightly but I'm not convinced that would remedy the windows key getting stuck.

What edges? Looking around the key caps nothing touches the outside of the key.

Seems to me the stem of the key cap could be rubbing inside the switch. But there is not a lot of material there to sand down.

Fixing it involves bending wire.


A little overkill. Easier to just RMA.
