  • Blue / Red LED Primary LEDs: Blue / Red
  • Blue / Red LED Control LEDs: Blue / Red
Ducky Mini is a reduced sized 60% keyboard design that encompass all the functionality of a full-sized keyboard. In addition, Ducky Mini includes mouse functionality that allows you keep your hands on the keyboard while you operate your computer. Ducky keyboards use only genuine German made Cherry mechanical key switches with unrivaled reliability and consistency. Dual color LEDs allows you to mix the two colors together for the exact shade you prefer, as well as displaying many eye-catching backlighting effects.

�Ducky Advisor� is another Ducky innovation that uses the LED backlight to visually guide the user through setting up special functions and customization of the keyboard. There are multiple customization options, such as multiple modes for ESC, Backspace, and Caps Lock. Multiple modes for Caps Lock includes setting the key as Ctrl or Fn key for those users that do not need a Caps Lock key functionality. Most importantly, Ducky Mini allows you to customize the location and number of Fn keys you want.

  • I rushed out and got this about a year ago. It's my primary home keyboard (it doesn't fit in the standard 60% travel case because of its bevel-- that's not a complaint). The Cherry MX Blue switches feel like they do on any other keyboard (I've got a POK3R and an aging Das Keyboard)-- another reviewer, I think, had a defect. No complaints here.

    Where this keyboard really shines (pun intended) is overall quality. This comes with a stylish wire, very metal sturdy case, and prettier keycaps that I've seen on other boards. Also, true to Ducky's style, the lighting changes based on which key options are available when the Fn key is pushed in, and there are a bunch of different color modes.

    It's worth noting that this has neither an arrow mode (like the KB Paradise boards) or a programming layer (like the Pok3r), so playing games that require the arrow keys are pretty much out of the question. That said, I love this board. Highly recommended for nighttime coding or general-purpose typing.

  • I'm a big fan of Ducky keyboards. I'm typing on a One right now, and I have an MK Disco at work. But I have to say, putting the LEDs below the stem makes them incompatible with pretty much every backlight-compatible keycap set I've ever come across. And putting the USB connection on the side instead of the back makes the PCB incompatible with any other case. The keycap issue is a substantial compromise because the stock caps aren't very good. And there's no advantage over a 60% board from Vortex or KBParadise that would be worth the sacrifice. The thick bezel is also an acquired taste. And the case doesn't have adjustable feet. All in all, not a great showing for an otherwise excellent manufacturer.

  • Keep in mind that this is my first ever mechanical keyboard. I've also felt and typed with other mechanical keyboards just very little (CM STORM something).

    I'll start with the bad. The left half of the keyboard buttons feel slightly easier to push and the right half much harder, it breaks the flow of typing pretty damn badly.

    The space bar is hard to push as well.

    The left shift switch makes a shifty noise when barely touched and a standard keyboard sound when pushed kinda like a blue mx switch.
    The right side shift and Enter button have the same issue and so does the Backspace key.

    The typing flow is ruined by the shift and backspace buttons where I sometimes miss actuating the backspace cap because of getting used to the left half of the keeyboard feel and pressure ammount I need to actuate those.

    Feels cheap and imbalanced. The feel is all over the place. I have to push harder when typing so I get that into my system and ensure that I don't miss other button actuations.

    Would consider the Vortex Pok3r.

    Pretty dissapointed, I've seen videos of this keyboard being typed and and those sound as they should. Mine is all over the place.

    I can't recommend it at this price unless you are able to feel the one you want to purchase before you actually buy it.

    50$ for shipping GG WP

    Otherwise a damn good build quality and form factor. The lighting is also nice. Although the blue color will always blow away the red one, combinations are useless as you can only get a pink hue and then if you go more you'll end up with blue. Red looks so underpowered on this board.

    Will try to change the caps.

  • I bought one of these with browns for work because my wrists were hurting reaching for ctrl, alt, and the arrow keys all day. Figured the function layer would help. It sure did!

    I liked the keyboard so much that when I built a new computer at home I decided to get another. This time I got reds for gaming. I am in love with the reds, so smooth. I'd actually trade my browns in a second, I guess I found my switch.

    If you're considering a Ducky Mini, I highly recommend it. 10/10

  • Recently got one of these, and I love it! The backlights are very bright, the customization options are great, but I was kind of hoping for a "ripple" profile option, like other Ducky boards. The fn key options are great as well, for those used to other bottom row layouts. My only complaint is about the Caps Lock backlighting mechanic, where the backlight is completely off when Caps Lock is off, and on when Caps Lock is on, which leaves a hole in the backlighting for 99% of the time.

  • This is my first mechanical keyboard, and I absolutely love it, so take this review from the perspective of a first time mechanical keyboard owner.

    The cherry MX Greens are NOT extremely hard to press as many make them out to be. Coming from membrane keyboards, the force seems roughly equivalent, but the typing experience is far superior. Every keystroke registers perfectly, which is a big deal because the Logitech K480 that I was previously using was very picky about where certain keys had to be pressed to register a click.

    The keyboard is loud, which makes it extremely satisfying to use, but I would not recommend it for an office space because it would drive coworkers crazy. The lighting is vibrant and beautiful.

    The keyboard will take some learning because it is a 60% keyboard, but it still offers nearly all of the functionality of a full keyboard. This is hardly a knock against it for me though because the instructions that come with the keyboard are extremely clear about how to use it, and how to set it up to achieve different functionality. I thoroughly enjoy getting the opportunity to learn this keyboard because I will be using it for many years to come.

    Overall, the keyboard is high quality, the experience is enjoyable, it is highly customizable, lighting effects are well done, and I will be using it for years to come. Thanks Ducky and thanks MechanicalKeyboards.com for providing awesome products and awesome service. Highly recommend this keyboard with the green switches if you like "clicky" switches and have heavy hands when you type.

  • Functions very much as intended. I really love the feel of the cherry mx red switches in this keyboard. The build quality is amazing and the various lighting effects are also amazing. It's also really helpful that you can switch out keys to do different functions, in my case Caps Lock became a second Fn. Overall the keyboard was well planned out and it's amazing, I'd recommend this keyboard to anyone who's looking for more space in their office or gaming space to have more mouse room.

  • I've had mine for about a week now. This is my fourth keyboard with blues, my first 60% keyboard, and my first Ducky product. Overall, I'm really impressed with the product.

    I did notice a very different feel compared to my other Cherry Blue keyboards. The space bar and backspace felt very different at first. I pulled the space bar off and noticed that there is a completely different stabilizer underneath it. It makes it significantly more maintenance friendly, but at the cost of a little bit harder press required.

    Pros: Very strong build, great lighting features, and I'm able to do everything I could do with a ten keyless with ease.
    Cons: The stabilizer "issue", USB out the side is a little awkward, and there isn't a GUI version of Ducky Adviser. I fumbled a little bit customizing my keys.

    I wouldn't consider any of my cons to be deal breakers and I'm sure the keys will loosen up after they get broken in a little more.

  • Before I start knocking this keyboard. I must say the build quality is amazing on this keyboard. However, I noticed that the cherry mx blue switches are not as crisp as every other cherry mx blue keyboard I've had. They seem to be getting stuck and feel sticky when I press each key down. I'm not sure if this is just a problem only I've encountered but it is very annoying. It's a very expensive keyboard and I'm shocked to see that the switches have this problem. If this is just a defect I would definitely try to get a replacement.
