Anyone interested in the Lightsaver or Duck V2 with the raiser?

The Lightsaver weighs approximately 4.7 lbs.  The box and accessories it comes with is an additional 4.6 lbs.

The cost is around $275.

This includes the case, plate, pcb, and accessories.



What are you doing to us Sherry! Absolutely beautiful. Depending on time frames I'll probably be in.
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

great looking board, if the keyboard weights 4.7lbs how can the accessories weigh additional 4.6lbs? what sort of accessories are those?  BTW did the guy came out with programming software for it?

Does "accessories" include LEDs and everything so I just need the switches to get a working keyboard?

What sort of accessories? And does it allow any deviation in the layout, mainly 1800 shift and extra key?

The only problem I have with it is the layout. Because Duck0113 wants to keep things simple, and use a tray style case design, there is a limitation to what can be done with the layout. There is no spacing of separation between the alphanumeric section and the numpad section, or the function row. While it doesn't seem like this would be a problem, your fingers will fumble, because they naturally look for this spacing they are used to, for reference. While I think the case is beautiful, I can't get past the layout limitation.

I don't see it as a limitation, but a feature. It allows a smaller keyboard while still maintaining most keys. Perhaps you're correct in that it will pose a problem, but I'm sure that can be overcome with experience and use.

Is it tray-style? Look at the 2nd-to-last picture. Also, in the last picture you can see a PCB & plate installed in the top half. Seems like a classic 2piece+plate to me, with the plate inside the top half (like most LZ cases).

I do agree with the layout though. Lovely board and great price, just not a fan of the layout.

Personally, I think the layout is the best part. Along with the excessive LEDs, this is a must buy for me. Also $275 seems like a very reasonable price for what's included.

Consider me in, I've been wanting this layout for ages. If it can support 1.75 shift and 00 and 0 keys on the numpad it would be even better.

Did I miss something or is your site supposed to be down? When I visit I get a shopify down for maintenance page, I checked yesterday (or possibly the day before that) and got the same thing. I did a quick search/skim around here and couldn't see anything mentioning it.

I think i would actually get one in silver at one point

I know from the his site (which is out-of-stock at the moment), that kits offer 1800 and regular shifts, and winkeyless or winkey

I'd go for winkeyless and regular shift i think..not sure

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll go tell duck how appreciative you guys are!

The accessories does not include LED.  Most of the items that are included is to piece together everything.

There are 2 LEDs to each side on the bottom, and those are included.

Anyone interested in the Lightsaver or Duck V2 with the raiser?

The Lightsaver weighs approximately 4.7 lbs.  The box and accessories it comes with is an additional 4.6 lbs.

The cost is around $275.

This includes the case, plate, pcb, and accessories.

Dear Sir,

Would be interested in joining this.

Smartie, I thought that everyone was in love with LZ gear  ;D .  It just leaves more to appreciate the other keyboards that are available to us now.

Definitely will buy this Duck when Sherryton gives the go ahead and also want a 75% MX-mini W: PCB + Plate + Case by sprit.  Good times are ahead of us here.

True, the more metal the bigger the cash outlay.

What I also like is the different keyboard layouts that have caught my interest.  No longer interested in the plain old TKL or 104 key layout.  At least Sherryton's new Duck keyboard is different but extremely usable.

Besides, we're dealing with Sherryton hence all is good  :thumb: .

This is from the Saver family series.

The picture posted by Sherry with the TKL + Tenkey PCB, that is Saver(TKL keyboard) + T-Saver (Tenkeys Numpad)

What Sherry is offering now is the Light Saver, what I'm waiting for is the Mini Saver (60%) and Light Saver Limited(If it is TKL)
