So I've done a little more research, and to my understanding, any Cherry MX compatible key caps will work on the Cherry MX Browns of the Ducky? If so, does this seem like a descent place to get some coloured caps?

Different keycap positions on the board have different profiles. Those look to me like they are all the same key. Plus they are blank do you want that? Also didn't you win a shine? With backlighting? If so it has special keys for the leds to shine through.
Either way heres where I bought mine, they come in various colors.

Got the Azio board, and it's way too huge, been thinking of getting a CM Quickfire Rapid..... but them Noppoo Choc Mini's are exactly what I want! Anywhere you can buy them new in the US or relatively painless ship to the US?

*edit* NM, just got a black Noppoo with blacks on ebay for 89 bucks or so shipped!

I think my brand new keyboard fetish is good for now.

Tried blues on the choc mini, realized after a while they weren't for me. Sold it and just ordered a new one with browns from Qtan. Right now typing on my Leopold w/clears. So once the new board shows up I will decide between clears and browns for my main board.

Typing on the WASD I gave my wife made me want to get a TKL w/browns.

Anyways just wanted to say curse you guys for getting me hooked on these things. biggrin.gif

Just so you know pcb mounted mx blues feel entirely different than plate mounted mx blues. I can't stand plate mounted blues but I really do enjoy the G80 3000 with mx blues. So I wouldn't necessarily write off mx blues just yet. wink.gif

Looks like an excellent place to order a set of caps from, and price is not all that bad considering. Spending $50 on top of my board might have been a bit much, but since I don't have to pay for the board itself, not so bad. I'm thinking white caps, but still using the lavender WASD and two red caps that come with the OCN Ducky boards. Maybe get 4 more lavender for the arrow keys. Also, I don't believe it was a Ducky Shine that I have won, just a Ducky 1008, Ducky's lower end board.

EDIT - just noticed I can't get purple/lavender caps from WASDkeyboards.com, though I know I have seen them somewhere else when I searching today...

Uh oh, I hope there isn't a big difference between the browns on my WASD and the ones on the new Choc mini. The blues felt a little "rickity" and unstable besides the click. It just wasn't a solid keystroke feeling. I hope thats not the case with the brown switches.

Plate mounted browns are plate mounted browns. Every board that I have used with plate mounted mx browns felt the same to me and that includes the noppoo choc mini.

Plate mounted blues to me fell like an alps switch with the sudden change in force needed to pass that bump. Thats something that I didn't notice with pcb mounted switches. Thats just personal opinion though.
