Ducky Shine 7 RGB USB Mechanical Keyboard Cherry MX Brown Switches
The Ducky Shine 7 is truly a next gen mechanical gaming keyboard, featuring high quality Cherry MX switches. The latest update to the respected Shine series, this model has several noteworthy features. For instance, rather than manufacturing the top case from plastic or aluminium, Ducky have opted for a zinc alloy. This material not only creates a striking appearance but it’s harder than aluminium and helps reduce scratching. RGB LED back lighting as well as macro and multimedia function keys have been included.

FEATURING MECHANICAL CHERRY MX BROWN SWITCHES
This version of the Ducky Shine 7 uses Cherry MX Brown switches. Keyboards featuring Cherry MX Brown switches are an ideal compromise between gaming and typing applications. When depressed the keys have a slight resistance, which signals the switch is about to trigger. This makes the switching point easily recognisable, which makes typing noticeably faster and is particularly useful for multi-click actions.
FEATURES & FEATURES OF THE DUCKY SHINE 7 GAMING KEYBOARD
There are several premium features included with the Ducky Shine 7. Like the Ducky ONE and the Ducky Shine 6, the Shine 7 uses a powerful ARM-M3 microcontroller to control LED effects and store macros. It also has a USB N-Key rollover, which means that multiple buttons can be pressed simultaneously without “ghosting”. The rollover function can be reduced to six keys if desired.
The Ducky Shine 7 has rubberised feet for a secure fit. These prevent annoying slipping in heated gaming situations and give the keyboard a higher angle. The feet can be adjusted according to three different configurations depending on the user’s ergonomic preference.
DESIGN & HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS
The Shine 7’s design has been overhauled from its predecessor. It now has a look more associated with a traditional mechanical keyboard but its rounded corners give the Shine 7 a fresh, modern look. It’s most prominent new feature is a new cover made from a zinc alloy. This material is significantly harder than aluminium, which has the effect of reducing susceptibility to scratches or smears.
The frame and lid are made from a two-ply black PCB, which increases life expectancy and improves the signal stability of the keyboard. The keycaps are made of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and are constructed via a double-shot process. This makes them far more durable than standard keys.
STYLISH RGB LED BACKLIGHT
The Ducky Shine 7’s most striking feature is its RGB LED lighting. The keyboard also offers a total of nine different lighting modes with lighting effects and intensity being easily adjustable.
It is also possible to create custom LED routines for the keys. All settings and adjustments can be made via keystrokes, no need to use software. However, if you prefer a software interface RGB LED lighting can be configured via Razer’s Chroma Broadcast.
