Yeah I would definitely consider using transparent acrylic. I haven't seen that anywhere though. I guess I'll poke around on GH later, but if anyone knows of anything that's in stock somewhere NOW that would be awesome. Want to order and have it in time for Christmas so I have something to work on while at the in laws over the holidays smile.gif

(inb4 paranoia) also the decks seem nice, but the font is weird lol
also would it be too hard to change all the switches on the mionix to blues? or is it because i tried the MX blacks which i believe were on a bad keyboard? its the asus one im talking about, the one below:

No one has a switch-try for the MX-Clears that you can buy.

MX-Clears are more tactile and stiffer MX-Browns essentially. They have a more defined bump but require more force to actuate. The Panda switch is a Clear Slider with a Black spring so they're even stiffer. 

It's a nice mod, but I find 55cN switches to be my comfort zone. 

 

As for the Asus keyboard, it's an iOne made product. Again, based off the U9 design. The keycaps don't feel great but the feel of the MX-Blacks shouldn't be that different. 

 

MX-Clears require less force than MX-Blacks though. 

 

As for modding a Zibal 60 to Blues, wouldn't be that hard. Just time consuming. On the other hand, you'd put the same work in but it would cost less to mod an existing MX-Blue keyboard to a green LED. 

Modding a new LED type in would require some extra leg-work in figuring out the electrical properties so you don't mess anything up. 

 

As long as you're good with soldering, putting new switches on a keyboard isn't too bad.

Nice! I was thinking of getting the exact one on black Friday. I should have jumped on it as it was only 64.00 dollars. sad-smiley-002.gif

Bought a K60 today.

Like it so far.

If I wanted to buy different coloured keys for it, where would I go and what would I need to look for?

I'm not too knowledgeable on keyboards.

and im not good :/ i'll just buy the BWU or the mionix or the ducky. but im thinking that i dont need backlight so much, so i might just buy a wasd.

AHA! great news, apparently i can select which keys should have backlight on the ducky. guess i'm buying one! i will miss macros tho sad-smiley-002.gif

Coming from a first time keyboard purchaser (seriously this is the first keyboard I have ever bought besides the one built into my laptops) and first time mechanical keyboard user, these are my first impressions:
1) loud... hands down it makes noise where as I'm used to zero noise when typing (Mac chiklet style keyboards). I even got the MX Brown switches which are supposed to be quieter but its still quite noisy. I don't have a problem with this but for anyone who has never typed on or laid eyes on a mechanical keyboard you should know this going in... it will make noise bottom line. I knew that going in though and its completely fine for me.. I kinda like it biggrin.gif
2) Amazing. Best keyboard I've ever typed on.
3) This thing feels rock solid. Ducky obviously makes quality stuff and I was a little concerned about that considering these are imported from Taiwan. It does not feel light and plasticy but instead it feels heavy and solid. I was skeptical but I am VERY glad I decided to get one.
4) The only LED I can see is the CapsLock one because I'm using this keyboard on a mac right now but that one looks pretty good. Looking forward to lighting up the whole thing when my windows rig is done.
Thats pretty much all I have to say right now (opened the box 30 minutes ago).
Here's some pictures!

EDIT: Okay its been another 30 minutes and I figured out how to turn on the LEDs. Haha I thought the FN key was bottom left so I was accidentally clicking CTRL instead of FN when I originally tried to turn on the LEDs. Works now and it looks awesome biggrin.gif
Here's a picture with the LEDs on! biggrin.gif
2ai0x9x.jpg
And a picture of my rig ATM with the new Ducky
2qk2sdh.jpg
and last but not least NEWEGG BOXES!! biggrin.gif there's an ASUS motherboard and an i5 3570k in that top box biggrin.gif
2wg4niq.jpg
Haha sorry for posting 100 pictures but pictures are worth 1000 words biggrin.gif

the backlight is like the same color+brightness as the mac's keyboard, and from user experience it is a very nice amount of backlight. now on to checking the wallet process biggrin.gif

btw, thank god i can modify the backlit keys. that would be helpful. also, does anyone here know if i can bind other things to the keys above the numpad? or is it just whats the preferred software? i dont want int. explorer or windows media player opening :/
