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.
The PBT dye-sub keycaps are made with durable PBT plastic. The legend is printed with a dye-sublimation process that dyes the color of the plastic which will never wear out.
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.

Very pleased with this board and MK's service. After a long search for my first mech, I took some advice from local mech communities and went with this Ducky One. I won't go into all the details, because if you're hear, you've probably whittled down your decisions.
Pros: PBT keycaps feel excellent and solid. Very solid. I've noted some very minor dye problems where some legends appear a bit fuzzy, but I've got to be staring at it to really see it. The board is hefty and solid, even though it's plastic. Excellent to have micro USB connector for easy detachment. I love love love the minimal extra keys (vol up/down, mute, calculator). I use the 10 keypad primarily for finances, so having a quick calculator key is awesome.
Cons: I really don't have many. As noted above, some of the keycaps aren't perfect. For being an entry-level mech board, I don't see this as an issue. You have to really inspect it to see the differences in keys. I do wish the blue keycaps were a bit brighter, as the photos above can be just a tad misleading. Not a major issue though.
Really love this board as my first entry back into mechs after a decade or so without. This most likely won't be my last mech, but I am extremely satisfied.
MK shipping was nice. Keyboard was adequately packed to protect it. Shipping wasn't phenomenally fast, but it was good. Overall, very pleased. Will most likely shop with MK again.
Nice keyboard! The caps feel great and I feel that ducky makes great high quality products.
The switches feel great, gotta love cherry mx!
