  • First mechanical keyboard. Like Jimmy said, it took about a week to get used to but these are the switches for me. I didn't want clicky but the browns seemed too soft. I miss old typewriters and I do more typing than gaming. The only difficult part is switching back to a Mac keyboard and transitioning between soft and tiny keys vs stiff and longer travel. The LEDs are awesome. I wish the marquee mode would go all the way down the keyboard but I'm nitpicking.

  • Pros: Solidly built and has lots of features. Has Clear switches, which are relatively hard to find.
    Cons: Clear switches take a little getting used to, although that's not Ducky's fault. Give yourself about a week before you decide if you like it or not, especially if you're used to lighter switches.

    Overall I would definitely recommend the Ducky Shine II, although the Clear switches on this particular model may not be for everyone.

  • I looked high and low for a white LED back lit keyboard, so glad I found this one. its great, loves the lights and the black switches. the switches aren't too loud either which I was worried about. This is my first mechanical keyboard and I love everything about it.

  • I ordered a Ducky Shine II with white LEDs the moment they went online because I knew that I would love it. I work in a typing-intensive job and I need a keyboard that makes typing enjoyable. The Ducky Shine II with Cherry MX Blue switches is definitely a typist's keyboard if there every was one.

    I purchased this particular keyboard for two primary reasons. First because of the responsiveness of the Cherry Blue switches while typing documents and second, for the white LEDs. I work in a professional atmosphere and while I have blue LEDs on my keyboard at home, white LEDs are, in my opinion at least, more professional for the office. This keyboard allows me to have the best switches for typists while still have the illuminated keys that I love so much.

    The secondary reasons I purchased a Ducky keyboard are these; first I love the Ducky logo way too much, second, I love the Ducky brand name. (It's fun to say "Ducky.") Third, it's awesome to use my mechanical keyboard as a conversation piece.

    My keyboard arrived with an ill fitting switch. Fortunately, it's on the Z-key so I almost never notice it. Also, I have not made any effort to fix the switch or oil the switch, so I do not hold the switch against the keyboard.

    One thing you have to be wary of on these types of keyboards is that the letters on the keycaps tend to wear out quickly. I think it has to do something with the ABS plastic that the keycaps are made of. For example, the black plastic is wearing off the space bar right where my thumb hits it. If you play computer games with your keyboard, it's very likely that the paint will rub off on the keys you hit the most.

    Not withstanding my complaint, I would still recommend this keyboard to everyone and anyone, especially those who do a lot of typing. Although, on further thought, I would not recommend ANY keyboard, regardless of brand, that has Cherry MX Blue switches in it to a person who will be typing or gaming at times where other people in the house are sleeping. While I don't think the clicks of the switches are annoying while people are awake, the clicking is definitely loud enough to annoy people who are trying to sleep.

    One final thing I would like to point out. This is not what I would classify as a gaming keyboard. Obviously you can use it for gaming, but there are no macro keys and there are no USB ports on the side of the keyboard. I like to think of this keyboard as a general use board. If you are the type that needs a keyboard with dedicated gaming features, you should pick a different board than any of the Ducky Shine models.

    Overall, I would give the Ducky Shine II with White LEDs and Cherry MX Blue switches a five star ranking.

  • This keyboard makes me happy. It's clicky and responsive and you should buy it.
