  • I'm new to the mechanical keyboards circle. One of my friends who is very much into mechanical keyboards recommended me into mechs and guided me to get a Ducky keyboard as my first ever mech to try. So, after doing a little bit of research into what mechanical keyboards are about, I ordered this one on MK.com, waited a little less than 20 days for it to arrive by mail, unboxed it, and I think I'm in love. Bottom line is, it's so good, it's now my main daily driver that beats all other membrane keyboards I have ever touched. It even beats membrane keyboards I've tried that are more expensive than this.

    Prior to ever owning a mechanical keyboard myself, I was actually quite narrow-minded about mechanical keyboards. I used a Logitech membrane keyboard for everything: coding, writing, studying, &c; and I never knew anything better. But that soon changed when I got my first mechanical keyboard, this one, which I will just summarize into simple points.

    First, the weight and sturdiness. As someone who has never owned a mechanical keyboard, this thing is very, very heavy. For a smaller TKL keyboard like this one, much of it made out of plastic, you wouldn't expect it to be very heavy. And it's the strong and unique kind of heavy. It feels as if the whole thing were made of metal and the ground were a giant magnet. Well, technically, gravity acts like a magnet according to the science books, but it's only with this keyboard that you'll truly grasp the sheer weight on your hands when you carry it. Another plus is that the keyboard is so sturdy and strong that there is no flex at all when you try to bend it. My last membrane keyboard flexed a little too much, and this mechanical keyboard has just put that membrane to shame.

    Secondly, the LEDs. If you are buying a mechanical keyboard, I would say definitely spend a few extra bucks on the LEDs. Not only are there slightly more features in the models with LEDs (at least for Ducky's), but having LED backlighting just looks so sick on your workspace. I have it on at 100% backlighting and I frequently use my keyboard computer in a room bereft of the ceiling light. It looks gorgeous. I love it.

    Thirdly, the switches. I ordered the variant with the Cherry MX blue switches, and I have to say that this thing is loud af. My mom and I actually have rooms right by each other and I was absolutely afraid that it would bother her sleeping at night, but that proves not to be a problem in my case. These switches are tactile, clicky, and extremely responsive. It's perfect for someone who writes a lot of texts and chats a lot with friends, like me.

    Fourthly, the features. I looked into the manual and I was overwhelmed by the sheer customisability and options available at my disposal, e.g., macros, custom zone-based backlighting with varying brightnesses, and SIX profiles. Wow. That's more than I will ever need. :p

    Fifthly, NKRO. I am so impressed by NKRO, a feature I literally did not know matter to me. See, it was so awesome to see all the digits from 0-9 appear at once when I press all of them with 10 fingers simultaneously. It was also awesome to see 2-3 letters repeating in rapid-fire sequence when I hold down many keys simultaneously. It's this time that I found out that the keyboard on my laptop was lacking this essential feature. I found it only had a max of 4KRO on specific places and sometimes only 1KRO or 2KRO, if that's a thing. There's also even ghosting on my laptop's keyboard. Wow. That has NEVER happened with this new mechanical keyboard I have.

    Sixthly, I love the size. TKL's dimensions make the keyboard so much cuter and more adorable than the full-sized version of the same model. I guess this boils down to opinion, but I think it looks really cool, sleek, and cute on my desk, without the numpad. For the times I need the numpad (e.g., when doing numerical calculations on Mathematica), I will use my Ducky Pocket on my left-hand side.

    Seventhly, is that USB type C? That's so awesome. :D

    Lastly, I'm impressed by my average typing speed on this keyboard. 107 words per minute. Hmm. So awesome.

    The only downside I can think of is that I've had slight issues using this with my Windows 10 laptop, but I shouldn't think that this is a problem with the keyboard itself. See, if I plug in the keyboard while my laptop is on, Windows 10 fails to recognize the device as a usable keyboard due to some kind of "bad descriptor from device" error. As a result, the keyboard doesn't even respond or work at all. If I do try to reboot or shutdown from the start menu with the keyboard still plugged in the entire way through, that still doesn't work. The only workaround I know of is to do a really hard power down of the computer by holding the power button for 5 seconds, all the while with the keyboard still plugged in the whole way through. I guess this forces the BIOS to initialize and Windows to give a fresh start to all the peripherals. I don't know, but it's kind of annoying to have to do this when I just wanna unplug the keyboard for a bit from my laptop. However, the keyboard works perfectly without any flaws or hiccups on a Windows 7 desktop machine. So, I am willing to guess it's all about the OS.
