  • best keyboard ive ever had. only downside is i used to have the k70 and it had something to put your wrist on. but other than that 10/10 with cherry mx brown

  • Love the looks of the keyboard. I got one with Cherry MX Silent switches for work. After reading comments about how mushy or non-mechanical these keys can feel I wasn't expecting a fantastic typing experience. However I was very surprised at how much I love silent switches. They feel great and I feel like I can type very well on them.

    I work in IT and was tired of using a crummy out of the box keyboard when I consistently use mechanical keyboards at home. Mainly Corsair. I have a K70 with Cherry MX Reds, another with Speeds and a K95 platinum with Browns. I love the silent switches so much, I had to order another to use at home. I am also waiting for another Horizon with brown switches, and i'm expecting just as good as an experience.

    After taking some time to figure out how to program the macros, which was weird at first and required some google fu. It now is easy to program for me.
    One issue I have is on the step when you select a key to program; if using a Fn key combo, it won't register the first time I try, i have to "Select a key" two to three times before the lights begin flashing faster indicating I can record a macro.

    Another issue I've had is to set the timing for the macro I'm recording. In the manual, it says what the key combo is to set the timing between keystrokes ie: .02 seconds, .1 seconds, etc. HOWEVER it does not mention anywhere when to input this setting. I finally found a forum post where the person stated you have to press the timing key before EACH keystroke. I can understand the need to have varying timing between keystrokes, however I should be able to set it once, and the entire macro will follow it. However it will not function very well when programming a macro that uses a SHIFT KEY or ALT KEY, etc. as only the ALT/SHIFT key in the sequence will have the short delay, the rest of the macro will follow your timing.
    Regardless of all that, I love the keyboard. It is a dream to use.

  • Note: I'm not really a mechanical keyboard expert, really just getting started in my keyboard collection. Some history: After about 25 years of using cheap rubber dome keyboards, I went mechanical via a Logitech Romer-G board. After about 1.5 years using that one, I got sick of the key feel. particularly the cheap laser ablated abs keycaps which always felt dirty and slimy even if I regularly washed them. I did some research and really wanted to try this double-shot PBT style keycaps, and figured I could use that as a reason to try some different switches as well. Sticking with the quiet / tactile theme, I went with the Ducky One 2 with the MX-brown switches. I can't really comment on durability or anything at this point but first impressions are definitely 5/5 for look and feel of the keyboard. The MX browns have noticeably better feel compared to the Romer-G's in my opinion regardless of what I'm doing (gaming or typing). I'll say they are "smoother" and "softer", which I think is partly due to the longer travel. The keycap texture is sooooo much better than the crappy "gamer" themed ABS keycaps I was using, which I'm pretty sure were coated with some kind of rubbery paint.

    Also who needs backlighting when your keycaps look as good as this???

    Anyway, I ended up getting another ducky one 2 for work so it won't be long before I'm seasoned on the board. I'll try to update my review after a few more months / years of use. A side note: The keycaps do create a bit more noise than my old work keyboard which was a cheap DELL rubber dome board, even with the MX brown switches. But they are still quiet enough to use in the office. Just FYI.

  • This keyboard is simply fantastic. Excellent build quality, there is little to no flex when pressing down hard on any parts of the keyboard. Keycaps feel great and durable, and with my Cherry MX Red switches this KB is great for both gaming and typing. The mix light blue, dark blue, and yellow keys with the purple body make this keyboard look amazing. It is a very hefty feeling keyboard and clearly something that is going to last me a while.

    I'm only knocking off a star because I feel like at this price point, LED backlighting should be included and would have made this keyboard look even better. The keycap lettering is somewhat luminescent, but it's still hard to type in low-light conditions if you haven't memorized where the keys are. That, and among the included yellow keycaps the larger ones (backspace, enter, and return) have some trouble fitting on and require a good bit of wiggling to get in.
