You could've just gotten a Ducky One with that style of keycaps as stock

Ducky keyboards have programmable media keys. By default you have volume controls, but since I don't use the numpad I set the rest of them there

Its for the programmable macros, rebind-able media keys, and 5 function layers
>>61295792
It just opens up the default calculator program. Since the keyboard is programmable I rebound those four keys into media keys. The volume controls are on my mouse

I have a Ducky one and I bought it specifically for the minimalistic case. I went for the one with dye-sub PBT keycaps, and as far as keyboards go its great. It has a steel plate which helps give the plastic case a lot of stability making it hard to flex, and the keycaps are very thicc at 1.5 mm. There are plenty of other software features since the keyboard is mostly programmable, but there is no dedicated software to help you program it. It kinda sucks that Ducky raised the prices on all their keyboards by 10 bucks since they were so popular, but I think its still worth it.

I have the dye-sub version, and for that budget you did good. If you pre-ordered it before it shipped then it would've been $99.

If you want something minimalistic then go for a cooler master pro or a ducky one. Both keyboards are programmable so you can change the layout however you want. I think the ducky has two more programming layers then the coolermaster keyboard, while the cooler master pro has a whole bunch of software for it. Other then the keycaps everything else is the same.

not fully programmable, and there is no software to help with the already limited programming

Mine is one of the first gen ones and the chink clones use white, which actually matches them very well.

Ducky One was my third mech keyboard, and I would absolutly recommend it. I'd skip the backlight and get the one with dye-sub PBT keycaps.

They are releasing a version with doubleshot PBT instead of ABS in about a couple months. I would have waited for that, but otherwise Ducky is a very good brand. Just out of curiosity how much did you pay for it. Is microcenter competitive with online stores

Not him, but I do have a full size Ducky One with PBT keycaps. The keyboard is sold. The thing that surprised my the most was how heavy it is. The steel plate is solid and would only flex if I really applied a lot of force to it. I've dropped the keyboard a couple times and there are no cracks and it works just fine. Its got nkro over USB and if you OS doesn't support it for some reason then you can switch to 6kro with the dip switches on the back. The other dip switches change the position of the FN key on the bottom row. They keyboard isn't fully programmable, but it does comes with rebindable media keys, macros, as well as three function layers. The manual does a terrible job at explaining how to program them so I'd suggest to look up some of the several guides on youtube and reddit. Personally I set some of the media on my numpad on layer two. I though in order to execute theses macros I had to hold FN + the macro key I set. Turns out tho you don't and all what you need to do is just press the button the macro was set too. It tripped me up when I was entering numbers into excel and I was pausing, skipping, or rewinding my songs. It also has mouse emulation, which the only use I found for it is in 1 game where you needed precise mouse control, which was easy thanks to the finer control of a keyboard. As for the PBT keycaps they feel nicer and softer to the touch and after spending some time with them I can never go back to ABS. Since they are dye-subbed it means the legends are burned into the keycap becoming a permanent part of it and as such will never wear off. This also means that you can't feel the legends which makes them even smoother. Plus PBT is much more resistant to wear and will never yellow like those old keyboards, unlike ABS. Now there are some things I don't like, such as the lack of software as programming everything has to be done manually. Also the manual is terrible.

I'd say they're a solid 8/10. There aren't that many keyboards with a steel plate, thick PBT dye-sub keycaps, and macro programmability all for around 100 bucks. I also like the minimalist look that they have, except for the shine 6, that looks like trash

Well I prefer a more minimalist look of something like a Ducky One. The nice thing about ducky is that the media keys are programmable so I moved them all to the numpad on layer 2

Ducky One with PBT keycaps. I picked it mainly because it don't look like gaymer trash and has volume controls. The macros are fun to use as well
