  • 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.
