  • I love the hell out of the keyboard, but the keys have already started to wear off with regular typing after a few months.

  • The MK2016 keyboard is built on the Ducky Premier. The keyboard is solidly built and comes with a 2-year warranty.

    The Ducky PBT keycaps are the highlight of this keyboard and are absolutely amazing. They are very thick, and they make your typing experience an absolute delight.

    It is slightly elevated with flip-up plastic feet. It has rubber feet on the bottom of the keyboard to keep it from sliding. It would be nice if the flip-up feet would provide a bit more elevation, but that is minor.

    I am not a huge fan of the light blue/grey color combination (and would like to see a version of the keyboard with the more "classic" black keys with white legends). I appreciate that Mechanical Keyboards went with standard legends on the keycaps (a number of keyboards I have looked at on the site from other vendors divert from the standard labeling and/or positioning of the legends).

    The NUM LOCK, CAPS LOCK, and SCROLL LOCK keys are illuminated using LEDs under the keycaps (rather than positioning somewhat blinding LED lights between the numeric keypad and the multimedia keys like the Ducky One keyboards use). Since my eyes are very sensitive to LEDs, this is a welcome change. As these keycaps are not designed to be illuminated, I would like to see MK either replace them with ones designed to be illuminated or re-design them slightly to provide a small "dot" on the keycap to light up when the keycap is enabled.

    In conclusion, the MK2016 is a high quality keyboard top-to-bottom with amazing, thick PBT Ducky keycaps that give a top-notch typing experience. I just purchased a second one for my laptop. You will not be disappointed.

  • Just buy it.

  • Keys feel fantastic to type on and the blue/grey keycaps look beautiful.

    There are LEDs only on the WASD, Esc, Caps, Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and F1-F8 keys, all of which can be disabled if you want. My one complaint about the board is that the LEDs not very visible behind the solid grey WASD keys, but I didn't buy this board for the LEDs, so I usually keep them turned off. I suppose it is nice to have though if you ever get custom caps that you want to show off. The LEDs show up better through the lighter blue key caps.

    It doesn't show up in the images, but mine came with Ducky keycaps for the Win keys, as well as an extra bag with the blank Win keys, white F, J and Esc keycaps, and a keycap puller.

    Shipping was crazy fast for being free. I ordered on Thursday morning and got my package on Saturday afternoon.

    This is a great keyboard for a great price and I highly recommend it!

  • This is my first Mech, however, I have used friends' boards in the past and this one is superior in every way (in my opinion).

    The keycaps, to begin with, are very thick and great to type on. The brown switches offer a nice experience, however, if I must nit-pick, they are a bit rough but that may work itself out with time or I may apply some lube.

    I did add red o-rings as a courtesy to those sitting near me as I was bottoming out a lot which caused my typing to be a bit loud.

    The board is very clean looking with no extra flair. This board is Mechanical Keyboard brand, however the keycaps do have the Ducky logo on the Win keys as well as having "9008P" on the underside label which is the model number of the Ducky Premiere, on which this board is based, and although I have not opened it up, I would not be surprised if the PCB is Ducky branded as well.

    Overall, this is a fantastic board at a very nice entry-level price. If you are a first-time buyer and are unsure, you will not be disappointed.

  • Like another review on this keyboard said, it's a nice, simple looking keyboard that's not as gaudy with LEDs as others like the Ducky Shine 5. Coming from brown switches, the blue switches offer a much more tactile, crisp 'click' that browns lack. There is no programmable macro function on this board, but you can use Autohotkey to remap the 4 media keys in the top right if you want.
