I haven't used a CM board, but the Ducky's I've had have all been Taiwan-made, excellent quality keyboards.

I just purchased a UK-layout, Ducky TKL from OCUK.
It isn't RGB though, but I'm happy with the blue leds on this one.
My other Ducky Shine board is the full key layout, it was nice to get a TKL this time, much more compact, but still has the arrow keys.

Received my Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire on Tuesday after my Steelseries 6gv2 caused me some trouble. First it had a lot of issues with typing o and c by itself, which I could fix but then all of a sudden the n and c Keycaps kinda broke off. And what should I say. The K70 is amazing. Still getting used to it, but I love everything about it so far. biggrin.gifwubsmiley.gif My 6gv2 will probably wander off to one of my friends for spare parts/keycaps.

Ducky One LED with MX Reds. The keycaps (which are made in Taiwan) cost like $25.

Nice!

Do the keys block off the led lighting?

They do, but it depends on my mood if I feel like it I'll switch back to the stock keys.

Yeah, it's hard to find a decent led-friendly keyset, other than the stock Ducky keys that are often out of stock at retailers.

There are some alternatives out of China, but I haven't seen any that compare to the Ducky keys.

As for regular non-translucent keys, tons out there, your custom keyset does look good.

First of all you can use rubber o-rings to quiet down regular Cherry MX switches. But this will only make the down stroke quieter, not the upstroke. Blue and Green switches will retain their click too.

Then there are switches that are build to be quieter with damping on both the down- and upstroke. Like the Cherry MX Silent(Which is also available on the Strafe) and Matias(Alps) Quiet Click and Quiet Linear switches.

This keyboard was quieter than I thought, so going to get another one for work.

Really love the fact its not too over blown with media switches and other stuff I don't tend to use.

Thanks. I don't really see the point of trying to gun for something by GMK and so on since postage from EU/USA alone will cost like a bomb. I was thinking of importing Dolch-like keycaps from Aliexpress, but when the shop I went to had those, I got them along with the One.

Just a little hijacking to show you the layout I've got from MaxKeyboards two months ago. Simple ninja ABS keycaps, swiss layout. This is a potatoe pic (don't have any useful camera for that) but these shades of blue and white are nice on the soft gray matter of the CMStorm TKL v2...

Hey guys, does anyone know if there are any significant changes between the Ducky One and Ducky Shine 5, other than the RGB?

I was going to buy the Shine 5, but had to go abroad for a bit and now starting to wonder if perhaps the One is better value.

I'm moving from an original Filco Majestouch and i'm worried that the Ducky One may be of a lower quality
