Not at this time.

We are looking to correct the keycap sets so they are our branded ones and available in black on black or white on black and PBT.

So good news/bad news for mac users looking at the 9008g2 board. A few months back I bought on ebay a tiger edition because I missed out on the OCN 9008s and didn't realize the USB NKRO would be a problem on OS X. I decided to try using a usb to ps/2 adapter then connect that to a ps/2 to usb adapter. And the result is it works!

From what I can tell so far all the normal keys work just fine. The media and shortcut keys don't quite work however. None of the shortcut keys above the numkeys work from what I can figure out so far. The media shortcut keys work a bit oddly. The F1-4 which should be mute, volume low, volume high and play/pause don't do anything. The F5-7 are the weird ones they're marked as stop, back, forward. However on OS X stop is mute, back is play AND back, forward works as forward. Not a big deal for me as I don't really use those.

I'm testing this on a macbook pro running snow leopard and I'll test it on a hackintosh with leopard later tonight. So just a note to any mac users that might be interested in the g2, this will work with the adapters but won't be NKRO. Also I'm using just a simple USB to PS/2 adapter then for the PS/2 to USB I'm using something like this and not just a simple passive adapter:


I don't have a linux install currently so no clue compatibility with that. Oh and one last thing, the function key mode thing to switch the windows key mapping for mac works also.

Will order when this gets sorted out! That's the only thing stopping me right now... I want a sexy black-on-black branded PBT board with browns

Don't really wanna buy a second set of caps just to get black on black.

I thought I saw a $140 edition that came with a wrist rest a few days ago.

This has got me so intrigued that a similar kb caught my eye (here). So how does a Ducky differ from an Ione Xarmor?

Edit: I really despise the blue backlighting. A soft white would be so much more elegant. I already have plenty of blue in my case.

These should come with a wrist wrest as well. Send TankGuys a PM to confirm.

He may have just left them out of the pictures (as he didn't show any extra keycaps or key puller either. SO I think that's just the case.)

iOne's boards (like Xarmor, Qpad, & Razer; which are all made by them) are lower quality than the Ducky Keyboards we have sold.

They have higher defect rates, and the designs are slightly different as well. The sound of a U9BL-S (MX Brown) vs a DK9008 PBT (MX Brown) is slightly higher in pitch.
The keycaps also have a rubber coating on them that wears off quickly.

Well, I do not think, by default, we'll be offering a black on black keyboard right now.

As for when the Keycaps will come it, it might be the next shipment but I have no way to confirm that at the moment as we still have to figure out what went wrong and such.

Absolutely love typing on this thing. One minor issue though.

The caps lock key gets stuck if it is pressed where the plastic piece is (led shining through). If I press slightly above, it will not easily become stuck.

I believe I know why because the plastic piece seems to be a little more flush and get stuck onto the cherry key itself compared to the other keys with the plastic pieces (f9, scroll lock, num lock).

How should I go about this? I purchased the one bundle deal with the PBT caps and the wrist pad. I really hope I do not have to send the entire keyboard back just for one bad key.
