A Keyboard does not age like technology like CPU and ram. newer releases will only be marginally better. a quality keyboard should last 3-4 builds easily............

I have my Ducky Shine for I lost count how many years and it still looks and works like it's brand new. The double shot keycaps feel very nice to type on and doesn't collect finger oils that make the keycaps shiny.
These things are built like tanks!
Yea, I work 8-12 hrs on the computer so I figured I'd treat myself ;)

In the end I went ahead and bought a Ducky One2 https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07BDN ... UTF8&psc=1

Probably more than i wanted to spend on a keyboard, hopefully I should be able to end up close to even when I sell the Logitech Craft I have
totally worth the extra 60 over a k68 corsair for the calculator button launcher as a mechanical button..........

Ah you got the white LED version, if it were RGB I was about to suggest you get some pudding keycaps to let that light shine through.

Got these on my Ducky one 2 mini : https://www.amazon.ca/HyperX-Pudding-Ke ... B087QTR4CT

Did you buy it from NCIX or Direct Canada? I remember finding that deal here on RFD. Solid purchase, never regretted it.

I personally use Hangouts and I like it for one on one chats and it does SMS too.

Our company just switched to Microsoft Teams from WebEx.

There are a lot of features in Microsoft Teams, but it can be a bit confusing between conversations and group chats with specific topics. Hate the fact that you can't close off conversations.

I prefer WebEx Meetings for sharing screens and WebEx Teams is not bad for chat. But Microsoft Teams integrates with Outlook

Zoom is terrible.

Then you are talking about people use it for gaming only. If you use it for work no one would really have those noise cancelling headset or use discord. That would be a big problem then. Also its very disturbing to other people you share space with.

Well these are literally meant for gamers hence the NAME has "Gaming" in them. Go get yourself a cheap membrane keyboard for work. If you need something for work/gaming an don't want multiple keyboards then this is obviously not for you, don't know why people are hating so much.

I don't really use these keys so that wasn't a factor. The k68 'water/dust proofing' is what made me skip it. The reviews I've looked at complained the silicon made the keys feel different. It's going to be my first mechanical keyboard and I was ok spending a bit more for it. Mind you most of the k68's I could find were either red leds (I didn't want any colour, just a white backlight) and the cheapest RGB one I could see with a quick search was this one https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... anguage=en and it's only $30 cheaper

My Cooler Master Quickfire is starting to break. Pressing the E key will sometimes result in ee and T does absolutely nothing when I'm gaming. Any suggestions on a replacement? Looking for something that is tactile and not clicky like my Cherry Blue. It's too loud lol.

So you are saying only gamers can buy a gaming keyboard? only basketball players can buy basketball shoes? only baseball players can buy baseball jacket? Why would I want to type on a cheap membrane keyboard if I know I will be typing on it a lot every day? I'm not hating on this keyboard its just the fact that its not for everybody and you shouldn't have to make the lame excuses such as "noise cancelling headphones" to justify buying it.

Cherry Brown.
The Reds are quite but require less force so you'll get noise as they bottom out quicker.
And due to how low the actuation pressure is it will take some time to learn how to type/rest your fingers on the keycaps.

On the other side, I have a few Aukey charges that have been going none stop for 2 years without a single issue.

Every brand can produce a dude. Aukey is pretty darn solid.

Glad I bought this, using it now. At $45 it's a great backup board / fulltime budget board. Metal chassis, blue switches, rgb keys and an led strip on the front that looks really good.
