Thank you for this thread! I didn't know which mechanical keyboard I wanted. I was looking at the Massdrop CTRL, but I decided to purchase a Ducky Shine 7 with Cherry MX Brown switches.
Awesome! I looked at the CTRL but man, thats another 100 bucks on a keyboard. As tempting as it was I just went with the Ducky One 2. Curious though, did you get yours at Mechanical Keyboards? If so was yours in stock? Mine won't be in stock until the 31st then it will ship to me I guess. From what I've seen on YT and read, Ducky's build quality is superior to Corsair and HyperX keyboards so it should last a long time.
I also got a mechanical wireless 10 key pad from Amazon which should be here this week.
Yeah, I got mine on Mechanical Keyboards. It was on pre-order status and estimated they would get their next shipment sometime late February. It does suck we have to wait a while.
Yea it does suck. Mine said when I placed my order January 31st and I never got anything so I emailed and apparently that date is not set in stone so honestly who knows when I'll actually get my Ducky.
I read quite a few reviews that the Ducky Shine 7 had some issues with bleeding from the sides of the keycaps and was wondering if that was something that has since been addressed. Can any Shine 7 owners chime in?
I have a semi-TKL (Quickfire TK) and truth be told, I wish that I had a full TKL and a seperate numpad as after having used on on the left, I prefer it so much better. I think most of us tend to use our mouse to navigate excel and stuff, so if you use it on the left you never have to lift a hand. Saves a ton of mistakes and typing errors. I think you made the right choice on the separate pad.
You might try it on the left and see if you like it. There's a chance you may never want to go back though.
