Welcome to my humble abode! Very nice collection I might add.

The G2Pro PBT boards are fantastic to say the least! redface.gif

Especially the Dye-Sub'd PBT. Those keycaps are denser than the PBTs on my Limited Edition. Same thickness, they're just heavier and have a very good finish. I love them, they add a particularly favorable uniqueness to the typing experience; both tactile and audible. Here is pic of one of the G2 Pro with my Shine 2. Also, a Shine 2 Magenta and Shine 2 TKL Blue I gifted a while back.

I haven't had the time to try the "regular" pbt caps yet but I'm really liking the dyesubs for sure. The blank black PBT Ducky caps I got feel a lot rougher and just don't have the same nice feel as the original caps. Will have to invest in some additional sets off Geekhack GB's to get a bit more variation going rolleyes.gif

You are in wink.gif 10th spot for that lovely #790. I don't think you could have made a better choice for your first keyboard! thumb.gif

Dumb question to ask in a pro ducky thread whistle.gif. But... I'm looking to get my first Mech keyboard, and i need a few questions answers if you guys/gals don't mind thumb.gif

I'm debating on whether to get a ducky shine 3 or the k70... Now why should I get a ducky shine 3, and why do you prefer it over the k70( Build quality, aesthetics, etc) I'm currently using a dell multimedia keyboard from 2006 redface.gif. I mainly play MMO's ( no macros) along with pretty basic computer usage besides light-gaming. Do you guys think I'd prefer Brown, Red, or black switches for my uses?

What's a good website to order ducky shine 3 from (USA based)?

Also, I'd love to become a member here... I'm confused.

Thanks guys thumb.gif

Why hello and welcome! It seems that the k70 only comes in red switches, but I may be wrong. Red switches are linear, so there is no feedback until you bottom out. This is good for gaming where you are holding down buttons for a period of time, so you are bottoming out most of the time. For typing though, I personally enjoy the feedback that either brown switches or blue switches give you, because you do not need to bottom out to know that you actuated the key, and you can type faster because of this. I personally do not like black switches because I feel as if my hands will get tired after using them for a while. They are basically "stiffer", or harder to actuate reds. Since the k70 only comes with one switch type, and a limited amount of color choices, (I think just red and blue), I would recommend the Ducky Shine 3, because of its superb lighting features, and the wide variety of switches and LED colors. If you think the k70 is what you are looking for, then by all means go for it. The Ducky lets you get the perfect keyboard for you by offering a variety of switches, colors, and lighting modes.
If you want a Ducky Shine 3, check out Mechanicalkeyboards.com, or Tiger Imports.

Game on and make wins my friends.

Ducky Shine 3. Period!

I have the Corsair K70. smile.gif I don't use it! The best pro of the K70 is that it is more available to consumers, since it is made by Corsair, it will be likely that you can find one at your local PC store. Ducky's are harder to come by, you're going to almost have to buy it online!

However, although the Ducky may cost a bit more or be harder to get, it is 100x better to have. Not only is the build quality better, the features and aesthetics to me are on a whole new level that Corsair can't match with because their product is aimed at the main consumers. Ducky's are aimed towards enthusiasts.

I also do not like Cherry MX Reds. This is a personal choice and this shouldn't be used to start a switch war saying why Reds are better than so and so switch or why so and so switch is better than Reds. Please don't start a war here. smile.gif Anyway, like Gregaroon said, K70's only come in Reds so your options are limited with going that route. Ducky's have all different kinds of switches so you can choose the one that you like. Also, you don't need a Shine 3 if you don't want to spend that much money on it. A G2Pro or Shine 2 is enough for anyone, just a lot of us keyboard enthusiasts like to have a lot of keyboards for no real reason. smile.gif

Here is why I prefer Cherry MX Blue:
I prefer this switch over the other switches because of 3 things, the sound (clicky click), tactile feel, and the activation force. The activation force is high enough to be able to weed out most accidental taps and low enough to be comfortable. The sound is music to my ears, it's like Beethoven or Mozart or Bach for me. The tactile feel, I know when the spring hits and the tap registers, but I still bottom out. There's nothing more satisfying to me than the key hitting the bottom of the board. It's just relaxing and it feels perfect!

I have the original K70 with MX Reds. They now make it with MX Browns and Blues as well. I also own a Ducky board with MX Red.

The K70 is a great board in all respects. Two things that I found lacking. The ergonomic layout on the K70 wasn't as preferable as the Ducky layout and the keycaps aren't as nice. The finish isn't as good as Ducky's ABS keycaps and the font size is small; as a side I don't like the font style on the keycaps. Aesthetically, it's a great looking board with the aluminum plate. But, I find a simplistic pleasure in the Ducky that is equally yet differently satisfying. My Ducky YOTS board wins hands down though, the aluminum top on the YOTS is da bomb.

If you can afford it, I'd recommend a YOTS in MX Browns soon to be arriving at www.mechanicalkeyboards.com If backlighting isn't a necessity then give the G2 Pro Dye-Sublimated MX Browns with light grey and white keycaps a whirl. That board will not disappoint.
