Funny thing is:
At first, I thought them too expensive so considered getting a Ducky Zero. Found out that they aren't really of the same quality (to be expected as they are about 1/3 cheaper) so I decided to go for the Quickfire XT as it is decent, but lacks the backlight. Then when I had money the board appeared to be out of stock literally everywhere, took months. Then it came back in stock, instead of € 69 costing € 89 being the same price as Ducky Zero. Then I thought like, ah whatever, might as well spend some more and get a decent board then. tongue.gif

And what do you know?
Ducky Shine 3 being sold no more, at least not where I live. So only Shine 4 and Legend are available. But.... non with Mx Brown.

I really start to feel like someone doesn't want me to buy my first Mech board.

Got a Strafe RGB, my first Corsair board too:

















Still playing around with the board and the software (I underestimated the scope of CUE) but there are definitely a few things I like about the board, and some not so much. One thing I really like is the lighting effect here- better than the K70 RGB, and thanks to what looks like a different controller (I need to open this up to confirm) it seems to have no problems handling the entire 16 million color depth.

The Ducky Shine would be a good choice. My only problem with my Quickfire XT is the spacebar. Almost no one sells spacebars that fit it. Just something to keep in mind if you consider it.

That poor MJ2 has been sitting on the shelf alone for quite some time (no one bothered with it since people here are more inclined to go for one of the more gaming-orientated brands i.e. Logitech and Razer), so I decided to pull the trigger since there's a likelihood that the Ducky will almost be as expensive as this particular MJ2 when current exchange rates and shipping are factored in.

To put it in perspective, I bought the MJ2 for 60 MYR (a week's worth of lunch) less than it's current price. Also, no regrets about it, absolutely loved it.

Oh my sympathies. Yea in that case I probably wouldn't risk buying online. But hey, you ended up with a great board in the end! thumb.gif

I really like the Shine 5. Nice specs.
Any idea when to expect it? And I haven't seen a reported price yet, will most likely be out of my range I guess. Dual double-layer pcb, PBT double-shot keycaps.

Might as well just grab the XTi indeed. I'm not intended to switch keycaps anyway. Maybe later (probably biggrin.gif)

Did you read my previous post? Sorry if you didn't. But I posted what I needed in the keyboard and a few of these things were: Mx brown and below $ 160.

Actually looks pretty nice. But I must resist.
Is that a steel/aluminum plate, holding the switches?

How are the switches to you, different then regular? Corsairs names them mx silent, right?
Also, I have to ask. Do you game on it? How are mx brown's for you? biggrin.gif

Yeah some people told me already. It's hard. The XT is a decent board, still can't find the OEM of the XTi (but is probably solid to), and is a lot cheaper then the Ducky. Will wait a bit until the Shine 5. Or at least until I know when they come and what the pricing is.

Looks and feels like a steel plate (metal for sure, but not sure if aluminum or steel). Build quality is pretty good overall, not the best. This one is with the MX Brown switches, not the MX Silent. I do a lot of typing and gaming and have used the MX Browns before so I am fine with it for most things. I will say that I end up bottoming out these switches during frantic action games though biggrin.gif

I'm set on browns to.
Maybe I will use WASD o-rings. I have 6 red and blue rings here from the Sampler Kit. Can try if it will be comfy on the browns.

The only qualm I have with my Corsair board so far is I've seemingly lost the ability to use the media controls between software updates (keyboard software and firmware). Same status between Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Hmm. Thats weird.

Looks like I am sticking with my first choice, Ducky or CM.

Yeah the four extra keys on the CM shouldn't sway you from buying it, if nothing else you have four spots for artisans. biggrin.gif

Don't get me wrong. The buttons work as normal (they're remapped function keys). I also haven't started to troubleshoot it either. It could be a simple fix for all I know, but I haven't used my PC enough lately to remember/think about it. I'm so used to using the pop up in Windows, anyhow.
