Product information: Shine 4 Mechanical Keyboard Dual Blue / Red LED Brown Cherry MX Switch - UK Layout

Introducing Ducky's newest mechanical keyboard for 2014. This is an update to the venerable Shine series with a modern look. It incorporates all the usual Ducky functionality, such as USB Repeat Acceleration, N-Key Rollover, 1000hz polling, as well as all the great backlighting effects you've come to expect from Ducky. With the introduction of dual color LEDs, our backlighting effects are even more colorful than before. Ducky Shine 4 continue to use the familiar Cherry MX mechanical key switches for unrivaled reliability and consistency between key presses.

Features:
- Slim Modern Look -Ducky Shine 4 brings you a great mechanical keyboard with a modern understated look. A subtle hairline finish adds a bit of texture to the keyboard and complements the new look.
- Removable Feet - A solid feeling pair of rubber feet are installed for the user who prefer higher angles on their keyboard. They are easily removable with a twist for users who prefer typing on low incline keyboards.
- Ducky uses only genuine Cherry MX switches. Shine 4 is available in different switches to suit different preferences.
- Dual color LED technology - Dual color LEDs are packed into the familiar 3mm package. With Ducky's color mixing technology, you can create a wide variety of shades for stunning backlighting effects.
- Durable dual layer PCB design - Dual layer PCB is more durable and reliable than single sided PCB. This will give longer life expectancy as well as signal stability of the keyboard functions. Combined with a steel backplate, dual layer PCBs will give the user extra solid feel with each keystroke.
- Powered by ARM M3 MCU - Ducky Shine 4 is powered by an ARM M3 micro-controller. This powerful controller allows advanced functions as well as stunning backlighting effects.
- USB N-Key Rollover - Under USB, the Ducky Shine 4 can handle any number of simultaneous key presses. You can use the keyboard confidently in any situations knowing that there will never be ghosting or key blocking issue.
- 1000HZ Report Rate - Ducky Shine 4 uses the fastest rate available under the USB interface, and updates the keyboard's status to the computer every 1 millisecond. This minimize the delay from when the keys are pressed and signal received by your computer.
- USB Repeat Acceleration - Ducky brings adjustable repeat rate and repeat delay to USB keyboards. You can fine tune the repeat rate and repeat delay for gaming or your specific applications.

Backlighting Effects:
- 100% Full Backlight Mode - All the individual keys are backlit. This mode allows you to change the backlight's color and brightness to your preference.
- Breathing Mode - Keyboard's backlight rhythmically fade in and out creating a calm and tranquil backlighting effect.
- Color Cycling Mode - The backlight color will slowly cycle through the colors available with the dual color LEDs.
- Wave Mode - This is wave backlighting effect with a twist. Dual color LEDs gives this mode new life with plethora of colors highlighting the wave as it glides through the keyboard
- Snake Marquee Mode - Watch as the Snake snakes its way through the keyboard.
- Raindrop Mode - Each LED will randomly generate a color and fade out at a randomized interval.
- Reactive Mode - Ducky's innovative backlighting effect. Individual key lights up with every single key press with user adjustable color.
- Reactive Mode Advanced - Generates a randomized color with each keypress.
- Ripple Mode - A wave of light will rush out with each key press, like a water drop into a pond.
- Aurora Mode - Beams of light shoot out from the key and fly to the left and right then disappears

very good but overpriced

My mate owns one of these. It is a different path to corsair or razer, and I do like it. The keyboard has a sleek design and looks good, although the pony is strange, but hey, bronies will love it.....

The mechanical side are of course cherry so very good on that part, and they feel very good as well.

There is no software, just a piece of paper. It may not look as cool but it still works, however it can be a bit confusing.

Finally, for this price you can buy RGB etc, so if you are looking for colours this is not the keyboard for you as the colours are limited, but a very solid keyboard and solid choice!

Like it!

Lacking somehow

Purchased this just before Christmas very prompt service as usual.

Overall this feels and looks cheaper than the excellent Ducky Shine 3 it was intended to replace. It doesn't feel as well built or sturdy and infact looks like rather dull.

The LED's are quite good but other than that seems a step backward compared to the rather svelte Shine 3 which I have gone back to. On paper it may be technically superior to the Shine 3 but nothing you can feel (other than the dual led's).

In short bland and boring, think I'll try the Orion Spark which seems to have far more going on for roughly the same price and give the Shine 4 to a friend as a late Christmas present.
