I'm going to be getting my first mechanical keyboard soon and currently it's a toss up between the Shine 3 and the Corsair K70.
I love the look of both of these boards but the K70 currently has me won over to Corsair's side because of that sexy volume roller and dedicated media keys. However, I've read that the keys on the K70 aren't quite standard and it can be difficult/impossible to replace keys such as the spacebar and some of the modifiers with custom keys. To my knowledge, Ducky's offering doesn't have that issue.
Any K70 owners able to shed some light on the situation?
I have a QuickFire TK, which has the same dimensions for the bottom row modifiers. There's only one FULL keycap set I know of that fits the K70 and other nonstandard boards like it.
If you wanted to replace the modifiers with white or black it wouldn't be hard to find individual keycaps to replace the nonstandard ones, but if you end up buying a keycap set with specialized colors finding individual keycaps to match the rest of the modifiers would be impossible/expensive.
