Running a Ducky One TKL RGB with Cherry MX Blacks.  Two non-standard keycaps, the Esc has been replaced with a Project Key Ghost Servant and the space bar is the Ducky Year of the Monkey one.

Two reasons, I am at work currently and my desk is a complete shitshow of rubbish and PII.  Maybe when that is sorted :)

How is it at work? I m thinking of getting a second ducky for the office(developer here) but don't really know how they would feel about the noise. It's gonna be either brown or clear switches.

I assume only about 1% of people who like MX browns actually like MX browns. The other 99% simply have not tried a decent switch ever.

I genuinely know someone who likes mx browns lol, he uses vintage mx browns with a dab of 3203. They're reasonably smooth for cherry switches, and they sound pretty nice, and the dude likes the very light tactility.

Righto, did some cleanup.  Have a night pic, day pic and a closeup of the Ghost Servant at night.

Not a fan of the lighting color? But it looks great, especially that artisan, getting tempted to get one of these.

Yeah I know it a bit of an unusual taste, but I have my mouse and mobo set to match it.  Gives the room a purple/lilac glow at night when the screen is off :)

Got my first mechanical keyboard a short time ago, and it feels so nice to type with, being budget oriented I bought a Blackweb (Walmart brand) one since the Corsair I had been looking at was to expensive.
It's not rgb, but does have colored back lighting with three brightness levels and a handful of lighting modes.
I had to google more info about it (after I already bought it) and learned that it has Outemu Blue key switches that I assume are budget versions of Cherry MX blue's.
I know there are probably better options, but compared to thrift store oem ps2 rubber dome keyboards i'm used to, this thing is amazing.


I can't seem to avoid making myself seem like I have the equivalent intellect of half a brick.

So I just pre ordered my Zealios V2 67 Grams, is it necessary to lube the switches?

Zeal springs are known to not be great, they often have spring crunch and ping. I would at least lube the springs. But lubing the switch will further improve sound and smoothness at a slight decrease of tactility. I would use GPL 205GO if you want smoothness and better sound at quite a bit of tactility loss, 3203 for the least amount of tactility loss, and 3204 is a good compromise.

I kinda wanna try modding my MK750 to use non-Cherry switches, when I'm able to do that.

Could anyone recommend me a nice looking artisan keycap for the escape key?

Just placed a preorder on the ducky one 2 min pure white. Would like to have a keycap matching the white/cyan colors. I wanted a specter, but the matching colors already sold out.

Those are on the shelf with the dry water.

There are a few good ones, I think the more subtle ones look quite nice.

Here's my Input Club Kira. I like it a lot, so I bought two. One for my office and one for the house.

This way I don't need to keep adjusting for button layouts.

Both are setup as Jade switches for letter & navy for everything else.
