  • I bought this unit with MX Green switches just about a year ago from MK. I came from a 25 year old Northgate Omni 101 with ALPS keys, and the Cherry MX Green switches in this Ducky are pretty close to that old legend. I type and work, no gaming. The footprint is great for a full-sized keyboard. The three media buttons calculator button is a great use of space above the numeric pad. The build is solid. The lighting is consistent and pleasant. The micro-USB connector on the keyboard is a bit of a squeeze but I never unplug it from the keyboard (I unplug it from the PC often. see below).

    I really want to love this keyboard, but it has some issues. The location of the "FN" key for controlling illumination schemes means there is only one Windows-oriented key to the right of the spacebar. I use it as a right-mouse-click function but there was no "menu" keycap provided. It's therefore a "Windows" key that I know does a right mouse click; that's a minor nit.

    More critically, about half of the time on a system reboot the keyboard goes dark and non-responsive as Windows comes up. I must unplug the keyboard from the PC and plug it back in again, sometimes more than once. Supposedly there is a firmware update to resolve this. However

    The firmware update downloads as a .zip file, which unzips to a .rar file, which unzips to a .ex file. I had to Google what to do with the .ex file to get it to finally reveal a .exe file. When I run the executable, it shows splash screen that is nonresponsive, so after all that I am unable to update the firmware.

    Lastly, every week or so the arrow keys become nonresponsive. I have not found a consistent cause, nor a consistent solution except for rebooting the PC. I've tried toggling scroll lock with no effect and sometimes the arrows start working again on their own. But most of the time, when the arrows stop responding, I must reboot.

  • Have this Ducky One in the full-size with numeric keypad, blue LEDs, and Cherry MX Green switches; one of few keyboards that come with that switch and a keypad.

    Love it, but it does have quirks. No enabled/disabled light on the Caps Lock key itself, which seems like an oversight, since the key has the clear plastic area to show the light. Instead it is shown above the keypad, which is not visible from every angle. The mini-USB connector that connects the main cable can take a lot of stress for such a small connector and may break over time. Ducky would do well to revise this with a beefier USB-C.

    Still, recommend this keyboard to many, especially since it features such a breadth of available switches and for a decent price.

  • Absolutely wonderful, so far (hype is legit). Except for the Enter key actually being tandem red switches. And I decidedly do not like their levity one bit. Had me real worried I'd find even more reds too. but the few others visually checked ARE black (and the rest FEEL like blacks). Phew! And now I am eminently glad I decided against the TKL. I'll be using that blessedly black-switch Enter over there. A lot. See, I am a VERY firm typist. Buckle-springs since gradeschool; can't unlearn that force. (oh, if only there were linear MX greens lol).

    Still, a great board. Absolute night and day difference in overall quality against "gaming" mechanical knock-offs (*coughTteSportsPoseidonZcough*).

    OH! And for others also with motherboard bereft of native Type-C port, fear not for the included USB cable is Type-C to Type-A. =D

    By the way, ORANGE is a possibility to receive of the included bonus 10 key caps. That's what mine are. Unfortunately though, they are not backlit.

    MechanicalKeyboards: THANK YOU for helping us fight back against the abomination called rubber-domes (and at reasonable cost). Really appreciated! I certainly will be a repeat customer. No more knock-offs for me. One and done there lol.
