post #941 of 2423
Sorry if this has already been posted, as I tried to look back within the last 10 pages but couldn't find anything. What exactly is the difference between the G2 and whatever version boards that were just in stock were (I'll just assume they were G1). I've ordered a dk9008 G1 with blue switches, and it's going to be shipped out as soon as the paypal payment goes through. But all this G2 talk has got me a little confused.

G2's are a new revision of the board. They offer NKRO over USB (G1's offer NKRO over PS/2 and 6+4KRO over USB.)

The G2's also use a dual layer PCB instead of a single layer (though this doesn't really make much of a difference.

They are both solid boards; but G2's are newer and just a tad better so we're getting them this time.

G2's were not available at the original time of order either.

Question: Will my G1 (which I love BTW) be able to roll over 5 keys on my left hand if I just use the USB?

Example: W+D+CAPLOCK+CTRL+SPACE

Well:
Shift, CTRL, Alt, & Windows are all modifiers so they can be used with any 6 keys at once.

So you could do WSADQE+Shift,CTRL,Alt,Window (if you use all 10 fingers.)

I haven't been keeping up with this thread, but are you saying that the G2 will have partial or full NKRO over USB? I thought that it was not possible to have full NKRO over USB.

Before hand, no it wasn't.
This is full NKRO over USB.

Some other companies have done it as well, Microsoft's Sidewinder x4 could do 26KRO over used (6+4KRO was the previous limit.)

Noppoo Choc Mini 84 can do full NKRO over USB. So can our Duck DK9008-G2's

E-mail admin directly, as previously instructed. As I said, he specifically told me he'd clear the return and refund.

post #950 of 2423
Hello there, here is visitor from Slovakia.
Last half year, I was deciding over internet, which keyboard to buy, cause I was unhappy with keyboards last years and I've found out that mechanical keyboards exist. I've been searching for quality mechanical keyboard but in our country, there is option only for 2 of them: Steelseries 7G (or 6Gv2) and razer blackwidow.
From what I read, I found out, that lighter switches are better for me, as I have very sensitive fingers. But both of these keyboards have black switches.

I was dissapointed, that there is no mechanical keyboard on the market with lighter switches, with good quality, every has some flaws, so I was very happy, when I've found this thread. Very good news indeed and excellent work. I am thinking about buying the one, even despite the fact, shipping will be quite high.

I have question tho, so what are those PBT keycaps? Sorry, if someone asked before, but this thread has already 100 pages, I don't have time to read it all. Are those any better, than common ones? Why versions without wrist rest doesn't have them too?

Well and another question, is there a chance, that the keyboard can contain cherry RED switches? I think those are really great for gaming for ppl with sensitive touch. Unfortunately, there is only one full-set keyboard with those switches and it is already out of stock (I think it is from cherry company)

And what about backlit LED lightning. Do you plan something like that in future? With that, I think those keyboards would be just perfect, best in world, as there isn't very much backlit mechanical keyboards, that have good quality backlit system (Xarmor has not very good backlit, and poor quality keycaps). If you guys plans something like backlit, there is one thing I would like to advice... please, with RED color. Red color is pretty best for backliting, cause it is not so agressive in darkness, and there is so little keyboards with that color. :-(

So I think perfect keyboard for gaming would be: cherry reds, red backliting, quality caps, wristrest... but browns are good too.

Many thanks.
