  • My first mechanical keyboard. No big complaints. Feels nice and sturdy. The frame does appear to have a slight bow upwards from the middle, but it doesn't really affect typing or the way it sits on my desk - it lays perfectly flat and secure. I have since also bought a Royal Kludge RK96 to use at work, and the frame for that has a slight bow downwards from the middle, though again, doesn't seem to affect anything, so I'm guessing that's just a thing that happens with plastic frame keyboards. Back to my Ducky, there is a small chip/scuff on the lower left corner, and the CTRL key in that corner had some scuffing and flaking in the lower left corner of it, so I'm guessing this was dropped or scraped against something at some point. It doesn't affect the functionality and is pretty minor as far as damage goes, but seems like the kind of thing that would make something "B Stock" or a similar designation. Haven't messed around with modding too much besides immediately replacing the Cherry Blacks I ordered it with (the only option available for immediate shipping at the time I think) with Kailh Box V2 Browns I ordered with it, which I like, but think need some lubing despite being factory lubed. The only other gripe is also minor, which is that the legends aren't consistently shine-through - small sections of some of the legends are darker than the rest. But again, a small issue and not something that makes me regret getting this. I wish Ducky made a 96% or 1800 layout - something between this and a full size that still includes a numpad - but I don't reeaally need one for my home PC so I was fine with this. Overall happy with this keyboard.

  • Very happy. Two months of use with the Ducky One 3 TKL.
    This is my second mechanical keyboard. I wanted something TKL and while I was happy with my CoolerMaster MasterKey Pro, the Ducky One 3 is leaps ahead in terms of build quality. The board is heavier, slightly more rigid than the CoolerMaster which is fairly rigid itself.
    I thought my old board was good(except for being a fullsize for FPS gaming) but the Ducky is much better build-wise.
    One area that is lacking is the user manual. Even after finding it online, which had its quarks with the Ducky website, but do-able; I couldn't get the Windows Key disable function to work. Turns out, you have to disable each Windows key(left and right) separately.
    There is some nice RGB customization, but I just set it to a single color and left it. It would be perfect if there was some software for the TKL, but I believe it is only available for the fullsize Ducky One 3.
    Haven't had any issues other than the learning curve.
    In the end, I would buy this board again knowing its faults.

  • Great keyboard. Terrible documentation. I bought the Ducky One 3 RGB TKL to replace my Ducky Shine 7 to reclaim some desk space and I love the keyboard. I thought the Ducky Shine 7 documentation was bad. This is worse. It refers to key combinations for programming macros that they don't document. (e.g. Recording Time Option). I just wanted to change my CapsLock to something else and reading the documentation left me scratching my head. Sometimes it even refers to the wrong key combination to start the macro recording (it lists the Shine shortcuts) so this is not a translation problem it is a "don't care about documentation" problem. It is not a big deal since otherwise the keyboard is fantastic with the Cherry Brown keys and since I knew the Shine 7 stuff I was able to program that one key to my liking.
