Thats why I ordered another qfr instead of an xt even though I like the XT better, I didn't want to have to deal with selling an overly custom qfr and get pennies for it. ( as i'm out of stock cases and didn't want to have to deal with sanding and painting up another XT )

when I get my qfr in tomorrow, i'll just throw the stock caps and case on my other and sell it off for $50 or so, either that sell my Mionix, it retails for $150 and I can try to sell it for $80 or so.

I sent my Ducky Shine II DK9008 back to Ducky for RMA at the end of June. I have a confirmation from UPS that it was delivered on July 2, 2013. I got confirmation in September from their tech, Wei Chao, that they did have my keyboard and he would email me an update shortly, but since then I have been able to get no response from anyone. It has now been 5 months since they received it and I can get no word from them as to what is going on, or about getting my keyboard back or getting a replacement, they just won't return my emails.

Do you guys have any suggestions? I'm getting ticked because it was a $150 keyboard, then I paid another $20 to ship it to CA for the RMA and now I can't get any response.
Stuff like this is why im scared as hell of buying anything not from alienware. Alienware doesn't jerk people around and screw with them like this, I got used to it, and people ask me "why do you buy that overpriced crap"
One reason is because of this post here, i dont want my stuff to be left in limbo.

dude sorry for this, i would be insanely pissed off. Stuff like this makes me worried as hell that if anything happens to my ducky i'd be short out of luck.

purple top
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Only cons are there is a tiny bit of rust(I stopped the rust though) and a bit of black powder coat left on a non visible section of the backplate and the white top isn't 100% perfect as in you can visibly see tiny sandpaper lines when looking at it closer than say 5 inches + I didn't sand the inside corners of the top due to fears of removing paint.

the purple top is just awesome looking though

Man i love those blank keycaps on purple

the purpe....
My reacting everytime i see that keyboard.


Would you be at all upset if i copied this scheme if i wanted to customize my buckling spring? This looks so damn cool and i love purple and those keycaps. that is so damn cool. If there was ever a favorite keyboard ever made for me, its that purple one, thats so awsome.

Go for it, although I don't know if there are blank white bs keycaps. I know they just came out with white caps no clue if they have blanks.

I might 100% remove the rust from the plate today and sell it with a stock top to remove all the cons and put it on eBay.

Ah, HPE, for some reason I thought it was a backlit QFR (QFR Pro is it called?).

Sorry, not my cup of tea.

Though I do like the purple case and caps!

QFR Pro? tongue.gif

The Quick Fire Pro is fullsize, the nearest would be the Quick Fire TK which is TKL size with the arrows and home cluster as a layer in the numpad.

I'd be all over that if it were still stock blues. Love both the white on white and the white on purple, but I'm somewhat wary of the heavier switches. I know blacks were too heavy for me based on switch testers, so I'd be worried about greens too.

i've been wondering about trying to find a qf pro and stuffing it in a xt case... should be doable.

I'm looking to get 104 classic keyboard from this site and was wondering if i could get the keycaps/buttons in full grey?

Standard keycaps nothing special, just in all grey. I will be able to purchase in a 2 weeks or so and was wondering if this was possible, with the same price tag.

Pearl body, grey keycaps is what I'd like

Would this be the correct page for that? http://pckeyboard.com/page/KBDCFG/KBDCFG

Sorry if this seems obvious, I just want to make sure i get the right product.
Also what is the difference between B/S USB and QT USB?

Place the standard pearl keyboard you want in the basket. Then add a customization fee and request all gray keys.

http://pckeyboard.com/page/Classic/ http://pckeyboard.com/page/KBDCFG/CUSTOM

Unicomp uses two different switch technologies in our products. The buckling spring (B/S) technology provides excellent tactile and acoustic feedback to the user and is the preferred technology used by high speed, high volume typists. Our Quiet Touch (QT) keyboards use a rubber dome (R/D) switch technology that provides an alternative solution for those occasions where the loud acoustic feedback of a buckling spring keyboard might be a distraction to other nearby people in an office or home environment.

The buckling spring “Model M” keyboard, invented by IBM in the 80’s; popularized by Lexmark in the early 90’s; and manufactured by Unicomp for the past 17 years is regaining its status as one of the best keyboards in the market.

Your fingers will feel the difference with a buckling spring keyboard. Your typing accuracy will improve. The buckling spring key switch is design to record your keystroke at the precise instant that you feel the tactile change.

Standard rubberdome keyboards record the keystroke well after the tactile change is felt by your fingers. If you miss characters as you type and you know you pressed the key, that’s why. If you’ve tried to enter a shifted character but it came out lower case, that’s why. In fact most rubberdome keyboards require you to press the key all the way to the bottom. To compensate, many rubberdome users end up pounding the keys as they type. Ouch!

With the instantaneous nature of the buckling spring, your fingers can stop before the key hits bottom. Yes, the force required to press a buckling spring is a little higher than a rubberdome, but the low force over-travel period designed into the buckling spring allows your fingers to comfortably decelerate before hitting the key bottom. Ahhh!

While we specialize in making buckling spring keyboards, we do offer most all of our models with a rubberdome (R/D) keyswitch for users who want the other benefits our products offer. Those include the robust design, integrated mouse devices, customized layouts and colors, and custom microcode. We call our rubberdome keyboards Quiet Touch(QT).

Best regards,

Customer Service
