Potentially expensive. See:
Basically, if you want a complete ANSI 104-key kit, you need to buy multiple boards.
You need this G81 and harvest the keys (the switches are junk so the rest of the board is useless)
However, the right shift, entire bottom row keys, Numpad 0 and +, and Capslock won't fit the Ducky.
So then you buy this G80-8113-2 for right shift, bottom row keys, and the numpad keys. Capslock still won't fit. However, it has Cherry MX Brown or Clear switches, so nice opportunity to try them.
To top it off, you don't have windowed lock keys on the lock keys or some of the F-keys.
So ~$90+ later you have a decent set of double shot caps with a ton of spare/duplicate caps, along with a useless MY board and a decent board with Clears/Browns. You could potentially sell off the G80 and the extra caps for some money. Or you can join the Geekhack group buy and get a set of double shots for ~$50. Granted, they're worse than the Cherry set in terms of thickness and looks (Signature Plastic's font is ugly IMO), but it's quite a bit cheaper.Edited by B757 - 4/3/11 at 1:05pm
