As you can see near the bottom of the Shine 2 page, this is the same case for the Shine 2. Could possibly be a deal breaker for me as I was hoping to get Brown Switches and Blue LEDs. Waited 2 months for this KB too frown.gif

I really doubt that they will limit the LED colour to switch type.

I see you have a WASD keycap puller, do you also have WASD keycaps? I only ask because I'm wondering how good the quality of the keycaps is before I buy. thumb.gif

I sure do, it came with the key cap set that you see there.

The keycap puller is better quality than the filco ones - They keys themselves feel the same to type on, but i found that they actually fit more securely to the switch themselves than the filco ninja keycaps that were on the board at stock.

They keys in terms of thickness do feel very similar - to be honest they probably use the same/similar supplier for their keys(?).

Ah ok, can't wait to finally order my mechanical keyboard and keys, the only annoying thing is it costs ~£35 to ship a set of 88 keys from WASD to the UK. mad.gif

Yeah, I wasn't sure, should have guessed really as the WASD site is in the background of the last pic. thumb.gif

Shipping was $10 from the US to the uk and then I had to pay £16.95 customs charges including an £8 royal mail handling fee! Not the cheapest but there we go!

So an extra £25 on top of the $47 for the keys + shipping?

Identical mold for the WASDkeyboards key caps and the Filco keys per Ripster.

Sure hope not. Although it is believable based on the pictures at the bottom of the Shine 2 page, and they did the same with the Year of the Dragon Edition.
