Ducky Channel One 2 White LED Gaming Keyboard Brown Cherry MX (UK Layout)
The Ducky Channel One 2 White LED PBT radiates minimalist beauty along with a blend of new features and sought after design concepts that became popular with its predecessor, the Ducky One. As always Ducky has used reliable Cherry MX switches and combined them with PBT double-shot keys. These features are then packed into a slim, black and white case with a narrow and stylish frame – all rounded off by the addition of white LED background lighting.

MECHANICAL CHERRY MX BROWN SWITCHES
This Ducky One 2 White LED PBT employs Cherry MX Brown switches. Keyboards with Cherry MX Brown switches are a compromise between a pure gaming keyboard and the perfect keyboard for typing. When pressing a key, a small degree of resistance must first be overcome and this gives the user tactile feedback as to whether the key has activated or not. Since the two tightly packed actuation points are tactile and easy to feel, this not only makes speed typing markedly easier, it also makes multiple clicks in serial easy to perform.
DESIGN, AESTHETICS & MATERIALS
The key caps are made of polybutylene terephthalate, or PBT for short, and are produced using the double-shot process meaning they are significantly more durable thankeys manufactured with ABS. In this process, plastic is poured around a shaped piece of metal or plastic so as to allow the two components to be joined together. The bottom part of the keys is made from a transparent material to enable light to pass through, while the upper layer, with the exception of the desired cut-ouots, does not allow any light to shine through, so that the letters and special characters on the keyboard light up underneath the keys.
STYLISH LED BACKGROUND LIGHTING
The LEDs can be adjusted with four different effects including Breathing, Raindrop, Reactive and Wave. The full backlight mode illuminates all keys and with the LED zone customisation mode you can create your own lighting profiles. In addition to the LED modes, the intensity of the lighting and the speed of the effects can also be set quickly and easily.
FUNCTIONS & FEATURES OF THE DUCKY ONE 2 White LED GAMING KEYBOARD
The popular and highly sought after mechanical Cherry MX switches are virtually “indestructible” and, depending on the switch used, are ideal for an extensive array of game genres. Thanks to USB N-key rollover, any number of keys can be pressed simultaneously without causing “ghosting” or other delays. The 1.000 Hz report rate in conjunction with the current USB Type C connector, into which the removable cable is plugged, ensures that data is sent from the keyboard to the PC instantaneously. The other end of the cable uses a standard Type A connector.
The powerful ARM M3 micro-controller of the Ducky One controls and saves the selected LED effects. Additionally it optimises communication between the keyboard and PC while it also enables further functions as well as the use of macros and profiles. The Ducky employs a dual-layer PCB to increase the service life of the keyboard while improving the keys’ signal stability. For the keyboard to be adjusted to meet the ergonomic needs of the user, the Ducky One comes with feet that can be set three different ways: folded-in, as well as half-out and fully extended.
German made switches – Cherry MX switches can last over 50 million operations. The standard cross-shape allows you to replace keycaps easily.
3-level angle adjustment – Optimize your desired typing position by using the adjustable stage feet.
Detachable USB Type-C cable – The use of detachable USB Type-C cable is to provide convenience to users. We use USB HID with a high-frequency 1000Hz polling rate. That means that 1000 times a second, the keyboard is sending its input signal(s) to your PC, minimizing the delay when the keys are being pressed and signal is received by the computer.
USB N-Key Rollover (USB NKRO) and Dual-layer PCB – Under USB, this keyboard can handle any number of simultaneous key presses. You can use the keyboard confidently in all situations knowing that there will never be ghosting or key blocking issue. This also gives you longer life expectancy.
