[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 1052

post #10511 of 36843
So I received my Ducky DK9008G2 Pro Limited Edition PBT with Cherry MX Greens and I'm happy to say I absolutely love the keyboard. The stiffness of the green switch make it feel unbelievably solid. I'd like to emphasize that this keyboard is made to bottom out because you won't be able to appreciate the stiffness of green switch itself until you're near the bottom of the switch. For example, I tried putting O-rings on the Greens and I had a really hard time distinguishing the feel with my old Cherry MX blue Ducky DK9008 with O-rings and PBT keycaps (near the top of the switch and just past the actuation point, the greens and blues feel very similar). Also, the sound of bottoming out with the PBT keycaps is softened by the stiffer springs and actually sounds very pleasant and I'd say they are surprisingly somewhat quieter than my blues. I tested the green switches with ABS keycaps and the click had a significantly higher pitched sound than with the PBT. Not that there's anything wrong with a higher pitched click but the PBT's definitely give it a more pleasant sound, trust me. I'm actually scared these are going to replace my blues frown.gif I love my blues too...

The build quality on these newer Ducky's are superb! There is no flex on the upper part of the case like the older models of DK9008 from Ducky and the overall quality just feels like a tank. Anyhow, enough of my blabbering! Here are some pictures!

A closer pic of the lettering on the PBT keycaps


The switch itself. There are blue LED's for the WASD keycaps, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, and Num Lock




PBT keycaps:


The dip switches that mess with shortcuts and what not. The 4th switch allows for USB full NKRO! Absolutely loving this spec!


Unfortunately no rubber on these stands but not a deal breaker.


The horridly ugly orange backlit compatible keycaps that come with the keyboard.

I'm still scraping together some $$$ to get my Christmas present... for myself.
Currently using, now get ready, this one if harsh... rubber domes ;_;

Honestly you only really start to appreciate mechanical switches once you're forced to use this mushy keys.

Man, it feels good to be among my kind. I had an opportunity to get my hands on a razer black widow a couple years back, and have been biding my time since. Last month my g15 crapped out after years of absolute abuse, and my excuse was found. As of this month, I am the proud owner of a razer black widow ultimate stealth sans backlit keys. My God, mechanical keys are all the difference.

No way, I was eligible when I "joined" the "club", it's just that the current situation doesn't allow me to invest in a keyboard.
And it pissed me off that duckies are 60$ overseas while the shipping to my 3rd world country costs just as much, meaning 120$ :/
Wouldn't mind spending some time in the states for black friday/cyber monday deals.
