    This is kind of interesting in general (although I don't specifically like mini keyboards at all I like the full layout).

    My current keyboard is a ducky and I absolutely love it - best keyboard I've ever owned and 2nd place isn't close. My previous keyboard that I liked well enough was a HyperX model which wasn't amazing but I preferred it to Corsair/Razer models I had tried

    If they expand this lineup and partnership this could be a very good set of boards

    Personally, I think 75% is the sweet spot in terms of the size. This is just way too small.

    Ducky makes a quality keyboard. I've had my Shine 3 since 2013 and it get's daily abuse from me for work duty. Only thing I've ever done is to pull the key caps, soak them in warm dish soap water, rinse, dry, and put back on. Keyboard looks and types like it's new.

    The size is just perfect, since i went to the 60%, i can't see myself go back to the full one...
    I like Ducky Channel a lot it is one of the best keyboard brand (but their mouse are crap)...
    But why did they go to Hyper X switch???
    It's one of the few maker who have access to the FULL cherry MX range of switch (and some exclusive too).

    :( it seem to be only in ANSI, not in ISO.

    60% boards are great for portability or limited space setups but I always find myself coming back to my TKL and 75% boards.

    That said this feels pretty meh. I'd rather drop a bit less cash on a more generic 60% and just customize the crap out of it myself.

    perfect size for gaming, i went to 60 % a few months ago, i cant see my self gaming on another sized keyboard now, gives you so much more space on your desk, way easier to tilt your keyboard, more comfort.
