Jeremie Fidel, my buddy and a fellow gamer, indulges us with a short review with an awesome mechanical keyboard from Ducky.
Hello again, I’m back with another review now it’s about the Ducky DK1087 Mechanical Keyboard, and this is my very first MECH keyboard. At first glance it looks like your ordinary keyboard but it isn’t. I have owned a couple of gaming keyboards but this one tops them all---here’s why.
Pretty much standard it comes with the keyboard itself and the USB wire, no fancy plastic covering just the box and keyboard.
As you can see the ducky dk1087 is compact as it has no numpad but there is an alternative for that. I only use the number pad for playing “DOTA” Defence of the Ancient, “HON” Hereos of Newearth and “LOL” League of Legends, but with the new hot key programs I can bind the skills in the letters---who needs a numpad? Compact and slick design; I love the mono black color, it looks very bad ass.
I play a lot of games mostly RPG’s, a few racing games and FPS but mostly RPG’s specifically Diablo 3. The clicking sound really got to me not in a bad way but I loved how it felt and when I heard the clicking sound, it's like music to my ears. This is easily superior to my previous keyboard. The responsiveness of the Ducky is very good; one click on my number 2 button for a simple dash, and my character goes dashing unlike my previous one it takes about 2 to 3 sometimes 4 clicks. The instantaneous response is essential for an RPG gamer like me.
As I stated for a gamer like me I don’t need the numpad but if that is really a necessity you can always buy its big brother. Ducky Shine.
For my very first “MECH” I really must say it is a bang for the buck for only 40$, the design is pretty standard. But the clicking sound is what really got to me, I love the sound it makes in every word I type and the instantaneous skills I can make while gaming. It’s like im in the game with every step.
And you can bring it whenever you're in a gaming competition like Counter Strike or DOTA; it's not that heavy, a compact mechanical keyboard you can put almost anywhere.
- Clicking Sound
- You can carry it when you're on the go
- Clicking sound (if you don't like the noise)
- Really, what's not to like?
