The Ducky One is designed with a narrower bezel compared to the previous Ducky keyboards, the thinnest bezel that we ever made. We tried to reduce the overall size without affecting the overall design of the keyboard. The keyboard looks much better with a modern, simple and minimalistic design.
The Ducky One with new designed that provided two-stage feet and it is different from the traditional monolithic feet. Users are able to change the angle for keyboard with the choice of three (feet folded, small feet and big feet).
Unlike the original Ducky mini-USB cable, Ducky One provides a cable that is more commonly used; the Micro USB data cable. Cable and keyboard can be separated.
ABS double shot keycaps are built by two different colors of plastic combined. The keycap surface and the character will not be worn out.
Double-shot keycaps are designed and engineered in a way to give the users the best feel and experience we can and at the same time decorated with special patterns to achieve the best look and usability all at once.
Under USB, the Ducky One can handle any number of simultaneous key presses. You can use the keyboard confidently in any situations knowing that there will never be ghosting or key blocking issue.
The Ducky One uses the fastest rate available under the USB interface, and updates the keyboard's status to the computer every 1 millisecond. This minimize the delay from when the keys are pressed and signal received by your computer.
Ducky brings adjustable repeat rate and repeat delay to USB keyboards. You can fine tune the repeat rate and repeat delay for gaming or your specific applications.
Note: USB Repeat Acceleration may work differently in different applications. Please use a suitable setting accordingly.

This is a keyboard I will never retire from using. The photos on the website don't portray it as well as when viewing it in person. Very sturdy, crisp keystroke sounds, decent packaging. The provided keycap puller is not the best in my opinion, as it is too wide to pull keys with ease. The keycap puller that came with the Filco I previously bought is of a much better design, with two metal wire loops instead of a plastic bracket. Lots of fancy lighting options, more than I'll ever need. The right shift key, if you press it on the rightmost side feels sticky, but when you press it on the center it feels normal. If Filco was backlit and had dedicated media keys, I'd purchase the Filco. But for the price you're paying and the features included, this is hands down an amazing keyboard. It literally makes you want to be productive from hearing all the delicious clicks and clacks.
This keyboard is EVERYthing I was looking for in a keyboard. Simplicity was the first thing, all the features are already in the keyboard with no clunky software to install. The lighting is gorgeously clean and refined, with many levels of brightness. To top it all off, this keyboard has macro keys with 6 different settings. It is perfect for me!! I've been using this daily for 6 months now, the keys have become more responsive with more use. Blue switches are tactile and a pleasure to type on. For the price, this is a superb quality product. If you're looking for a simple keyboard, this is it.
I ordered the Ducky One w/ MX Blues as my first mechanical keyboard about six months ago. Having owned and used many other mechanical keyboards since then, I can attest to the fact that the Ducky One is one of the best built keyboards out there. The thin bezel and overall minimalist design also makes it the most attractive keyboard in my growing collection.
It's hard to overstate how solid this board is all-around. For example, the stock doubleshot ABS keycaps on the Ducky One are easily the best stock keycaps that I've encountered. The caps are fairly thick and satisfying to type on, and the top-oriented legends are fully illuminated by the backlighting (something that is surprisingly rare for backlit keycaps). Another minor detail that makes a huge difference are the key stabilizers on the larger keys. Though Cherry MX stabilizers have a reputation for being "mushy", the MX stabilizers on the Ducky One are consistent with the non-stabilized keys and feel great.
I only have a couple of very minor complaints. The most noticeable issue is that unless you're sitting fully upright and close to the board, the indicator LEDs for Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, etc. are often hidden from view behind the top row of the numpad keycaps. When I first received the board I was also confused by the Caps Lock keycap, as it has a small circular lens/window for a separate in-key Caps Lock indicator, but there is no LED installed underneath it. Not a big deal once I realized it wasn't a manufacturing error.
I own the version of this board with blue LEDs, but my brother recently purchased the white LED version. Though the blue LEDs certainly don't look bad, I much prefer the cleaner and brighter look of the white LEDs. Regardless, you absolutely can't go wrong with the Ducky One.
This site and the ducky website should take better pictures of this product. I took the chance and bought this model for my girlfriend. Wow, what a great keyboard. A quality, sturdy design, feels rock solid. The lighting is perfect. I will order another for me. Highly recommended!!! Mechanical keyboard dot com also great, fast processing and delivery. Many thanks
