Hi lads,

I'm buying a new board tomorrow. I considered many, but the Ducky boards seem to win in quality and features.

I'm undecided between the ducky shine 5 or the ducky one, both with cherry blues.

What are your thoughts? Is the shine 5 with the extra cash, does it offer any differences other than the rgb?

Shine 5 has RGB and a different case. I'm personally not a fan of the coloured translucent case found on the ONE, but it's personal preference.
I'm also not partial to the colored translucent case option, but Ducky does make a regular solid black case version of the One as well, which I ordered a few days ago from OCUK:

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/ducky-one-tkl-mechanical-keyboard-blue-led-blue-cherry-mx-switch-kb-198-dk.html

I have an older Ducky Shine 2 108-key board, and figured I'd like to add a TKL to the collection.

For 98uk, CaseKing may be the better option to order a Ducky from, in Germany.
They are the parent company of OCUK, and also show a good stock of Ducky boards:

https://www.caseking.de/search?sSearch=ducky

UK, German layout available as well, at these suppliers.

From my experience with the Shine 2 board, I am a committed Ducky buyer.
The Shine 2 has worked flawlessly, and still looks new.

I went with the Ducky One, rather than the Shine 5, but not only for the cost savings.
I didn't want the rgb lighting, just the regular led, blue in this case.

The Ducky One is still made in Taiwan, as is the Shine 5, not in China as were the cheaper boards.
With Cherry MX switches, and double-shot ABS keycaps, plus the new slimmer case, I believe the Ducky One is a very good value.

Very good info thanks, i had only looked in uk assuming i couldn't get British layout from a German company.

If case king do UK layout, they sound ideal! Otherwise i was going to go amazon.co.uk

Edit: where did you see UK layout on CaseKing?

Sorry about that, I should have worded it better.

I didn't know which layout you wanted, but I see that I mentioned that "UK, German layout available as well, at these suppliers."
I should have said UK layout from OCUK, and German layout from CaseKing.
Apparently, the Ducky boards sold at OCUK are UK layout, unless otherwise specified.
(In spite of the photos, which are always of ANSI layout boards.)

As for CaseKing, afaik, they are selling the German ISO layout Ducky boards, but I don't know if they have UK layout available there.
I have not purchased from CaseKing, only OCUK.

So for a UK layout, you may have to purchase from OCUK, or Amazon UK, whichever works best for you. Unless CaseKing sells the UK layout as well.

Cool, thanks for the clarification. I think as you say CaseKing only do German layout, which I cannot use for the life of me. I have a German layout Logitech keyboard, but set to UK mode and it's such a nightmare trying to find the special chars tongue.gif

I think i'll order the Shine 5 from Amazon UK, it's only a tenner for shipping abroad which isn't half bad. Also, the cost difference between the Shine 5 and the Ducky One isn't so much.

Thanks!

Excellent!thumb.gif

The Shine 5 should be a great board.
Not much of a price difference, and you've got a good shipping rate with Amazon UK.
I've not used a German layout, lol. Fortunately the UK layout is currently in good supply.

I'm looking forward to receiving mine this week, and I bet you are too.smile.gif

I just ordered a light grey one for my work HHKB (white) and a red, green and orange one for my home HHKB(dark grey). I've been waiting for this drop for quite a while.

2 dark grey for me, good surprise to see it happens, it will be even better than the first ones (a bit refined) thumb.gif

Nice! I've got some Gat blacks to toss in mine until my RS78 ships. How was the desoldering?

Congrats on the KOTM win over on GH as well. thumb.gif
