Introduction

Mechanical keyboards are a well known premium product in the peripherals market as they normally feature greater performance, endurance and a better build quality over their rubber-domed cousins. They are popular with most of the pro gamers and typing enthusiasts, with many keyboard related forums all over the internet (Deskthority, Geekhack etc.). Typically mechanical keyboards demand a higher price tag over the other varieties of switches (discounting Razer’s Blade and Mad Catz’ STRIKE 7 keyboard), as they feature the core component – Cherry MX switches. With four main flavours, all offering a different experience, it’s not a surprise that more and more companies are jumping on-board the mechanical bandwagon.

Ducky are a well known mechanical keyboard brand who are notorious for their superior build quality and fancy lighting effects. Today, Ducky UK have provided us with the latest mech keyboard ¬†from their Shine product line – the Shine 3 TKL (DK9087), with orange backlighting and Cherry MX brown switches. This Ten KeyLess (TKL) keyboard is a 80% version of the Shine 3 DK9008, which means there is no num pad. The keyboard still has the majority of the features of the full size board, just in a much more compact form. In the past we’ve had a look at the Shine 2, so it will be interesting to see how it compares. The full specifications of the keyboards are:

  • Cherry MX Switchs.
  • Full LED backlight
  • 7 level of brightness
  • 2 User customisable back light profiles
  • Backlight Modes: Breathing, Wave Marquee. Snake Marquee, Reactive, Ripple
  • Dual layer PCB for extra durability
  • Multimedia Keys.

  • Dual Layer PCB.
  • UV coated Laser printed ABS Keycaps.
  • N-Key Rollover via USB.
  • Replacement WASD Keys.

As usual, let’s take a look at the keyboard.
