Ducky has landed!


Hurry - stock is FLYING! Apologies if orders take more than ten minutes to process, they're just coming in too quickly. If your order is successfully placed there's nothing to worry about though :)

Sorry, can't buy Ducky till 2024.
If you are going to be bringing in non-conventional keyboard brands though I wish you'd bring in some Bloody or IKBC. Or find where those Roccat Vulcans are hiding.

I pulled the trigger! When I saw that black keyboard with side printed caps I instantly fell in love. She is sitting on my desk now... :love:

Thanks so much @RebelTech for bringing these in! They are fantastic!

Turns out I don't mind the hog. I thought it was going to be a hideously big thing looking like it escaped out of Okami or a Miyazaki movie which is why I was going to hold out for the Dragon but I reckon I can live with that hog afterall.

I do however have one downside to my order, although not major since it only pertain to the extra key caps. The extra space bar is year of the dog and not year of the pig as advertised on the store page & the extra set of key caps come with NumPad enter key for a full size keyboard which I literally cannot make use of, and the arrow keys that come with are a lower profile design to the rest of the key caps & having those different heights isn't a great thing and makes me leave them in the packaging rather than making use of them.

I put my extra keycaps on my Corsair. :p

Dude, ask them about the spacebar if you would rather have year of the pig? I'm sure they will be able to sort it out for you...

It's not that it really bothers me all that much, just that I wasn't expecting the year of the dog, was keen to see the lighting effect through the pattern of the pig/hog. But this is first world problems and I don't want to complain about something that really isn't an issue unless I make it one xD Will see though, also because I did quick google searches on the meanings of the years and initial feeling I got from reading leaned towards dog over pig.

I see you grabbed the white keyboard - the white ones come with YotD while the black ones with YotP (Ducky has manufacturing shortages):

Free Bonus10 "Living Coral" Color Keycaps
Year Of The Dog Spacebar
Key-cap Puller

However, the YotP spacebar will be sent to you once Ducky is able to send them to us :)

The numpad Enter is for the full size keyboard, but it is a standard key set for the entire Ducky range and hence included. I'm not sure about the lower height, I will have to check on that for you.

Edit - if you're talking about the arrow keys being smaller and having a decline when compared to the rest of the keys on the keyboard, that is normal. The keys the keyboard comes with are like that too :)

I was actually looking for this in my emails and couldn't find it xD I didn't even realize that it was indeed what I had purchased and so thank you for clarifying that, as well as an apology from my side for not checking my own order before posting and saying that I did not get what was advertised. That is a fault on my side and I should not have done such.

The extra spacebar would be absolutely extra xD, and do not expect that from you as a company, especially since I did not check my own order. Although it would be a fine addition to my would be collection xD

I thought as much with the extra set of key caps being a standardized set from Ducky themselves, not an issue at all either. I will acquire another keyboard at some point to make use of them. The height point, when I pulled off the escape key to replace it I just put them side by side and gauged by eye and they seemed to a little lower profile.

As for the typing experience so far as I am obviously using the board now, the switches have a little more resistance to them probably due to the doubleshot PBT and took a little adjusting as the full size feels a little easier to press and actuate, the mini has a different audio to it being a little quieter than the full size and I am loving every. single. key press. Seriously, the resistance or whatever it is that makes it feels just that much smoother/cushioned to the press is a welcomed experience.

Getting used to using function for Delete and arrow keys, as well as the overall size will take a bit more getting used to, but man am I enjoying this so far.

The lighting is strong and vivid which I am super pleased about. Next thing is to learn how to make your own lighting profile and maybe switch a few keys around.

Thank you for bringing in a great product at a good price! And who can forget the now 2 year warranty🤤
