Ducky Shine 5 is the first model that comes with the ABS double shot backlit keycaps. ABS double shot keycaps are built by two different colours of plastic combined. The keycap surface and the character will not be worn out. The LED lights can emit the light through the keycaps just like any other ABS backlit keycaps.
Double-shot key caps are designed and engineered in a way to try and give the user the best feel and experience, therefore Ducky can and at the same time decorate it with special patterns to achieve the best look and usability all at once.
Ducky are using this new technique "The 2 Double-layer PCB" to improve the backlight and colour choice. Ducky puts all SMD RGB LED on the second Double-layer PCB. This leads to the result of the Cherry RGB switches which therefore improve the brightness with a better outcome.
Ducky Shine 5 carries the goods and the legacy from the Shine 4’s shape, design and the modern looks. Hairline finish texture is used on the cover to enhance and emphasis a better quality and premium feel.
Ducky uses only genuine Cherry MX switches. Shine 5 is available in different switches to suit different preferences.
Ducky Shine 5 is powered by an ARM M3 micro-controller. This powerful controller allows advanced functions as well as the stunning backlighting effects.
The Shine 5 has a 100% full backlight mode. All the individual keys are backlit one by one. This mode allows you to change the backlight's colour and brightness to your personal preference.
The Shine 5 also has a rhythmically fade in and out creating a calm and tranquil backlighting effect. Colour Cycling Mode
