  • I ordered Ducky One 3 Classic (full size) with mx silent red switches and it arrived to me in Abu Dhabi, UAE without any problems. Yes, I paid for the additional shipment and waited a little bit, but it was worth the wait. Until today I was using the Leopold (full size) with mx brown switches and it was quite good for my home office work, but this keyboard is better - more robust build, silent and equally satisfying for typing, with added bonus of RGB lighting. I was unsure about silent red switches, but they work well. It is definitely a more balanced and stable keyboard when sitting on the desk. I may buy another one for the office use, it is perfect. No gaming here.

  • Coming from a GMMK 1, I'm extremely happy. I swapped in Glorious Panda switches and wow what a difference versus my older keyboard. Same great feel, but the acoustics are a lot more subdued and pleasing. No more clacky keys during Zoom calls. Construction is great, no creaks or rattles and though the top plate is not metal, I don't really notice this in day to day use. No issues with key chatter on 1.07 Firmware. The improved latency in games is also noticeable. Lack of software vs the Ducky Shine 7 I had in the past is a little disappointing, but a quick glance at the manual had me setting my preferred backlight color. Speaking of which, compared to the PBT keycaps that came with my Ducky Shine 7, these keys do not have any backlight uniformity issues. So I'm glad they got that straightened out. Unfortunately, while the backlighting is very good on this keyboard, it fails to accurately display the color White. Instead it's an odd gradient of pink and bright blue light. I understand why this is, but the GMMK was able to display White better in this regard. Not a dealbreaker.

    Overall, I'm very happy with this keyboard. There aren't a whole lot of options for a quality, full sized (which I prefer for work, I'm a programmer), hot-swappable keyboard out there and I definitely consider this an upgrade over Ducky products of the past and my previous GMMK keyboard.

  • LOVE the pink ducky keycaps it ships with! love the keyboard overall but PBT keycaps's defective edges remain a sore point for me due to manufacturing limitation but you don't really see it unless you flip the keyboard over or pull out the key caps.
