Currently own the Ducky One and think of buying the Shine 5.

Could someone give me some idea on how flat it becomes when feet got removed - from screenshots it looks like a more steep angle than the Ones.

The angles on the back and side of the Shine 5 make it look taller than it really is. It comes pretty close to flat with the feet off, here is a photo:

Great - thank's a lot for the picture!

Is there any estimate on when to expect a shine 6 - not that I can think of a reason to do so but it seemed the time span in between the last ones (not sure when the shine 3 was release but at least the shine 4 and 5 seemed to be a year apart only)? Just don't want to pull the trigger if a new version might be launched the coming months.

Also does anyone have experience with the Nature White switches? I kind a prefer the MX Black's more distinct resistance but can type faster on MX Reds (basically offset by higher error rates) - the Nature White seems to be the smart way to go for me.

Not sure of a release date, but here is some info on the Shine 6. The keycaps should finally be double-shot PBT, but it will also be coming with software now. Personally not a fan of software customization, just more stuff to slow your pc down, but if you want what I assume will be a deeper level of customization, then its a nice addition. Also comes with an aluminum housing this time around, so seems like there will be a bit of a price bump too.

Hopefully Ducky will sell a doubleshot PBT keycap set separately so I can upgrade my Shine 5, not really interested in the fact that they added software.

Ducky ONEs should be good? I have one coming in sometimes soon. I got it on a deal with MX red for around 50 USD.

I have no previous experience with mech keyboard and I like really light keys. So I figured MX red is the one I prefer.

Ducky One is a great choice and for 50 bucks a steal (German default price is 130,- €) - MX Red should serve you well if you prefer linear, light switches.

I planning to buy a Ducky one (non backlit light version) and after that I will mod led RGB tri-color 4pin. But I dont know its PCB does support led RGB or not?

Regular Cherry MX switches have a black housing that holds a 3mm led and has only two pin slots. The RGB switches in most mech keybaords are switches with clear housings and an RGB SMD LED mounted on the PCB underneath. Even if you did get 4 pin RGB leds mounted with custom switches or something, you would still have to find a way to wire them up and control the three different colors. You would also have to replace all the keykaps with ones that can let the light through if you want the letters to light up and not just light behind the keys. Basically, if you want backlights, buy a keyboard with backlights.

Just got it in today & it is all working perfectly. I am loving it so far, I was a little worried that it uses KBtalking switches instead of Cherry switches but after some typing I am happy to report the KBT Browns feel almost identical to Cherry Browns, maybe even a little better. thumb.gif

Anyways I came across this thread when researching what new KB I was gonna get & it definitely pointed me in the direction of Ducky KBs. The question I have now is can I join the club seeing as my KB while not branded Ducky is manufactured by Ducky (it even came with the Ducky space bar installed out of the box)?

Color me confused, but why didn't you get a Ducky One TKL RBG?

Then again, other than the feet and one being TKL and the other not, I have no idea what is the difference between a RGB One and a Shine.
