  • I am not thrilled with this keyboard. I bought it in June 2021. The response time is not always great. The number keys sometimes lag, but the number pad doesn't suffer the same issue. I created a second profile for use with a macbook, and the macros lag just enough even with the shortest speed setting that I make mistakes while waiting for Home or End key presses to respond. I am much happier with the Durgod Taurus over this one.

  • I'll make it straight to the point. I came from a Corsair K70 LUX with Cherry MX Brown switches. I've enjoyed that keyboard for a good 4-5 years and decided to just switch things up for a change.

    What I wanted in my new keyboard was primarily a change of the switches (to Cherry MX Light Red in particular; for the quietness). Man, do I love how quiet they sound and feel, a personally really nice change from the Cherry MX Browns. On this topic of feeling, Ducky One's Horizon keyboard is truly amazing to the touch. The double-shot keycaps truly feel different and superior to the regular, plasticky ABS keycaps (a real noticeable difference in the texture). Added with the PBT build of each keycap, the durability can be felt with each keystroke, grease and oil really don't build up (so far) which is a nice change compared to the ABS keycaps from my K70 LUX. To put it simply, I love this keyboard simply it's a nice change for me that I was looking for.

    If you're like me, I researched into custom keyboards and didn't want to go through the detailed process of building one myself (and also on a budget). I did not want RGB or back-lit lighting to achieve a minimalistic look. The color palette of this keyboard is also beautiful, especially the orange keycaps complimenting the navy and dark blue ones. The keyboard's got a strong build and high-quality keycaps that make the user experience a joy.

    I now use this keyboard for gaming, typing, and video/photo-editing. The quality of the price is clear to me as it should for those interested in this one.

  • Outstanding keyboard. I was looking for something reliable build quality with full size keyb, that had Cherry Clears. Am not disappointed, but blown away! Clears are the best switches, and I love how Ducky gives you a bunch of extras like easy to use volume keys, extra key caps, and built in cable routing. The caps feel great too, this is definitely the tactility that you want in a more quiet environment. I have been using this keyb for 3 weeks and it's something wonderful, highly recommend for gaming.

  • I wish I had read the review about the keys being hard to read. The blue on blue is very hard to see and this keyboard does not have any lights. I like it otherwise but for the price I am regretting getting this color scheme.

  • The keyboard works great. Unfortunately the keys, being a blue on a dark blue, if you are in a dim room, it makes it very hard to see which key you're pressing. Thankfully I can type without looking, but there are sometimes where I need to find a special key and I have to look and strain my eyes because it's too dark in my room. If your room is dark, probably go for a keyset that has more contrast between keys.

  • I bought this keyboard to replace/be a secondary keyboard for my razer blackwidow. I'm typing on it right now, and it's not bad, however it feels kind of weird to me just because it's a new keyboard, and I kind of still prefer my blackwidow keyboard. That being said, that's just my personal preference, this keyboard is of good quality.

    It's a very nice color scheme, with gold, blue, and black: absolutely stunning, which is why I bought it over any other keyboard. Plus, you can switch up your keys with the 10 or so extra key caps they give you. There's no backlight, but I never used it on my blackwidow anyway, since the light was extremely distracting and didn't look that great. I'd rather just have nice, beautiful, and minimalist key cap color palette, which is exactly what this keyboard provides. Of course, it has laser etched keycaps with double PPT, and it also has cherry switches, which is an industry standard. The USB is also small, compared to my blackwidow, which the cable was just humongous. Overall, I'm satisfied, but my blackwidow is just as good, so don't buy new mechanical keyboards if you old one is still fine! My old keyboard is five years old, so I thought an upgrade was needed, but even with all the wear and tear, the keyboard is still fine, so I guess I'll switch the keyboards up every once in awhile. Plus, the price point of $100 is very hard to beat with the nice quality this keyboard provides, so I'd recommend it overall.

  • One of my top two boards, I have bought several, and usually have to surrender them to family members.
    Great quality, weight is perfect, key spacing is perfect.
    Typing on one now, w/ MX Blues. MX Browns was stolen by wife, buying another for an employee as a welcome gift.

    If you are looking for, or have never bought, this is your first mechanical keyboard -- it is beautiful and fits great at work or home. Go with the MX Browns, b/c if they are not the ones for you, a friend or family will thank you forever for passing it on.

  • This is my first modern-day mechanical keyboard, and overall quite satisfied with the Ducky One quality. My main complaint is regarding the legibility of the green letters/numbers on the blue keys; in daylight it is adequate, but in lower-light conditions - as Cameron also noted - it's harder to read those keys due to low contrast between the colors. The orange symbols on the black keys are easier to read with higher contrast. Therefore I may be replacing the blue keycaps for some with better legibility in the future (fyi the photos are rather misleading).

    Also, I ordered this with MX Brown switches, and expected "no click" per the Cherry MX website description and "they don't make much sound" from Tom's Guide review, but in reality they're a bit louder than cheaper common keyboards. It's not a deal breaker for me, because I'm using this at home, but if I get a keyboard for open office use at work, then i'll get quieter switches like MX Reds or Silent Reds.

  • Being that this is my first mechanical keyboard, I am pretty happy with the look and feel of it.
    Build quality feels very sturdy, but I was a little annoyed that I needed to pull several keys to clean up plastic flash on the edges, as some of them had much more flash than I would have expected. 2000 wet sand paper solved this problem.

  • I want to start off by saying the customer support, specifically from Krysten Lucas, was phenomenal. I ordered the Ducky One 2 Horizon with Cherry MX Blue switches all the way to Canada and it came in 3 days! At first it came missing my free bonus and it seemed they were all out, so I sent an email and Krysten not only was able to call the factory for me and find another MK Coaster but also shipped it to me for free with 2 additional exclusive free bonus' and she made a customer for life out of me. I appreciate the company and everything it provided me with and it will loyally get my business from now on.

    Personally I use keyboards quite often due to my current studies (Computer Engineering) and am almost always either typing or studying- either way using a keyboard. I've had about 3 years of experience using mechanical keyboards and the Ducky One 2 Horizon is by far my favourite so far! I look forward to keeping this thing in good condition and using it for as long as I can.

    Thank you and regards,

  • best keyboard ive ever had. only downside is i used to have the k70 and it had something to put your wrist on. but other than that 10/10 with cherry mx brown

  • Love the looks of the keyboard. I got one with Cherry MX Silent switches for work. After reading comments about how mushy or non-mechanical these keys can feel I wasn't expecting a fantastic typing experience. However I was very surprised at how much I love silent switches. They feel great and I feel like I can type very well on them.

    I work in IT and was tired of using a crummy out of the box keyboard when I consistently use mechanical keyboards at home. Mainly Corsair. I have a K70 with Cherry MX Reds, another with Speeds and a K95 platinum with Browns. I love the silent switches so much, I had to order another to use at home. I am also waiting for another Horizon with brown switches, and i'm expecting just as good as an experience.

    After taking some time to figure out how to program the macros, which was weird at first and required some google fu. It now is easy to program for me.
    One issue I have is on the step when you select a key to program; if using a Fn key combo, it won't register the first time I try, i have to "Select a key" two to three times before the lights begin flashing faster indicating I can record a macro.

    Another issue I've had is to set the timing for the macro I'm recording. In the manual, it says what the key combo is to set the timing between keystrokes ie: .02 seconds, .1 seconds, etc. HOWEVER it does not mention anywhere when to input this setting. I finally found a forum post where the person stated you have to press the timing key before EACH keystroke. I can understand the need to have varying timing between keystrokes, however I should be able to set it once, and the entire macro will follow it. However it will not function very well when programming a macro that uses a SHIFT KEY or ALT KEY, etc. as only the ALT/SHIFT key in the sequence will have the short delay, the rest of the macro will follow your timing.
    Regardless of all that, I love the keyboard. It is a dream to use.

  • Note: I'm not really a mechanical keyboard expert, really just getting started in my keyboard collection. Some history: After about 25 years of using cheap rubber dome keyboards, I went mechanical via a Logitech Romer-G board. After about 1.5 years using that one, I got sick of the key feel. particularly the cheap laser ablated abs keycaps which always felt dirty and slimy even if I regularly washed them. I did some research and really wanted to try this double-shot PBT style keycaps, and figured I could use that as a reason to try some different switches as well. Sticking with the quiet / tactile theme, I went with the Ducky One 2 with the MX-brown switches. I can't really comment on durability or anything at this point but first impressions are definitely 5/5 for look and feel of the keyboard. The MX browns have noticeably better feel compared to the Romer-G's in my opinion regardless of what I'm doing (gaming or typing). I'll say they are "smoother" and "softer", which I think is partly due to the longer travel. The keycap texture is sooooo much better than the crappy "gamer" themed ABS keycaps I was using, which I'm pretty sure were coated with some kind of rubbery paint.

    Also who needs backlighting when your keycaps look as good as this???

    Anyway, I ended up getting another ducky one 2 for work so it won't be long before I'm seasoned on the board. I'll try to update my review after a few more months / years of use. A side note: The keycaps do create a bit more noise than my old work keyboard which was a cheap DELL rubber dome board, even with the MX brown switches. But they are still quiet enough to use in the office. Just FYI.

  • This keyboard is simply fantastic. Excellent build quality, there is little to no flex when pressing down hard on any parts of the keyboard. Keycaps feel great and durable, and with my Cherry MX Red switches this KB is great for both gaming and typing. The mix light blue, dark blue, and yellow keys with the purple body make this keyboard look amazing. It is a very hefty feeling keyboard and clearly something that is going to last me a while.

    I'm only knocking off a star because I feel like at this price point, LED backlighting should be included and would have made this keyboard look even better. The keycap lettering is somewhat luminescent, but it's still hard to type in low-light conditions if you haven't memorized where the keys are. That, and among the included yellow keycaps the larger ones (backspace, enter, and return) have some trouble fitting on and require a good bit of wiggling to get in.
