think i bought mine ducky shine 2 around 150+ cant remb already. but last for 5 years... i think really worth the price tag and its a norm price for high end KB.
My only problem with my Ducky 4 Keyboard is that I can't justify buying a new one until it's broken

which of the 8 u own? quite curious
2 Filcos full 108 key, Blue, Brown (side printed keys) - all developed issues on some keys after a while, one of them i re-soldered a switch but the overall feel and typing experience is the best

108 key Rosewill , Red - no issues to date also quite well made.

Cherry Classic Line G81-1800 , Black - retro I recall it being well made but black is too stiff for me

Razer Black Widow Expert (2010), Blue i think? - One of the cheapest Cherry MX based keyboards at the time the only issue was the damn macro keys on the left, made centering your hands difficult if you are used to regular keyboards

Royal Kludge RG-987, some Red clone - worst in terms of construction but I was going for cheapest keyboard I could find only $40. I believe it had bad key wobble wasn't nice for typing at all.

Keycool 84 key with Bluetooth , Gateron Red - don't really like that gateron switch compared to Cherry MX, the keyboard is decently solid not as good as Filco or Durgod. High quality keycaps but a bit sharp at the edges

Durgod K310 - Red silent - Liking this keyboard a lot so far!

Anyone has experience with logitech mech keyboard keycaps?
My G413 LEFT CTRL keycap legs broke (bought 2yrs ago).
Asked Ban Leong (distro) but they don't have replacements.
Anyone knows where to get one?

On a side note, some of my buttons are also double chattering. Is this a common thing for Romer-G/Logitech keyboards?

didnt know theres this thread..

i realized ducky keyboard quite durable as compared to logitech ones.

recently i bought one Logitech G810,but the keycaps underneath quite easy to break, and stuck inside the hole lol. had to buy new ducky one to replace.
thats what i experienced before A and W keycaps broke for my logitech .

All 4 legs of the key cap were left in the holes for me. 3 removed via Blu-Tac; last one I had to use a needle to dig it out. Switched the Right CTRL over for interim use.

Logitech mice are good. Apparently their KB can't live up to the same name.

Nice collection. How does Durgod red silent compared to Filco brown? Does it feel more like topre keys?
It's really a different feel. Some people don't like the squishy-ness at the end. MX Brown and Red have this nice crisp feeling throughout the entire stroke, the abrupt bottom out and then that immediate push back for the return of the stroke. Everything is dulled out on the MX Red Silent. For me the benefit is the quietness, it's my top priority

I’m using Leopold FC900r, love it since bought, it has no RGB lighting and only basic key LED, the typing and response are great, and it uses double shot PBT caps.

Best is if you can head down to the store and experience yourself of others like Filco and Ducky, you will then know better what you want as typing is personal experience.
