Ducky is a relatively new brand to the South African market, but they have certainly made a big splash in the pool of peripherals. We were fortunate enough to get our hands on one fo the flagship mechanical keyboards from Ducky, the Shine 7, and we now know why they have made the impact they have.
The design of the Ducky is exemplary of their idea behind their keyboards; simplicity
The keycaps themselves are made of double-shot PBT, making them comfortable on your fingertips, while remaining responsive to any presses you make. One of the toughest parts about a new keyboard can be getting used to new keycaps - due to their material, pattern, contouring, etc - but the Ducky Shine 7 was relatively easy to get comfortable with
The ergonomics on the keyboard itself are fantastic as well, thanks to the "boat" shape design on the keyboard itself
The elevated bottom keys were actually helpful in relieving plenty of stress in my pinky finger, and I was actually able to use the V key in games that required it, which was, to say, amazing
My only criticism of the Ducky Shine 7 is the lack of multimedia controls. I really feel that, while you can mute and adjust the volume, a keyboard in this day and age, needs to include multimedia functionality
Overall, though, I loved the Ducky Shine 7 for its sturdy build quality, excellent ergonomics, fantastic keycap construction, and comfortability, and the ingenuity of the dual peg system to elevate the keyboard to the user's specific need
Loves games with deep character development and a rich storyline. Also, shooty-shooties. Loathes microtransactions. Likes to use sarcasm and metaphors.
