A fitting successor for the G2 Pro PBT.

I just wish they'd offer the keycaps separately...

Thick keycaps:

It would just be nice for a TKL version like what Awful said though I'm still interested. I like the color of the green on white caps a lot! I kind of want to try white switches...

Interesting, if they have alternate layouts, will they have the proper key caps to fit? Or perhaps these key caps are a different uniform profile??

TKL's must sell very poorly in Asia to not offer them.

I heard the Dyesubs were a PITA for Ducky so it's odd to not go with a smaller layout.

Look how thick those PBT caps are.
Considering PBT keycaps are 50-70 bucks, this looks like a steal!
I'm kind of curious why they bothered with back lighting.

I'll definitely consider this if they have a TKL edition.

I'm not that familiar with Ducky but I'm guessing the difference between the premier series and the shine series is the PBT (premier) and back lighting + abs caps (shine)?

Ducky "Premier" keyboards
« Reply #11 on: Fri, 03 January 2014, 16:51:06 »
Man, Ducky sure is pushing a lot of new keyboards in a short amount of time!  :eek: First the tuhaojin, and now Premier!

From my understanding, the premier line of keyboards have no extra "settings" printed on the keycaps. Just beautiful clean, Thick PBT Dyesubs! Apparently the keyboards can switch between Qwerty, Dvorak and Colemak without tweaking OS-related keyboard settings.


Ducky Premier DK9008P
● Switches: Cherry MX Brown / Blue / Red / Green / White(Milk)
● Dye-Sublimated PBT keycaps ( 熱昇華 PBT 鍵帽 )
● Grey Case / Green-White keycaps, Blue-Grey keycaps
● Function LED Color: Blue
● Languages: US / Chinese / UK / Nordic / Korean
● DIP switch alternative layouts: Dvorak / Colemak
● USB Repeat Acceleration
● LED Backlit keys: ESC / WASD
● Made in Taiwan

Blue/Gray keycaps: (Different from 9008G2Pro, doesn't have extra LED function settings printed/Circular LED holes in keycap)





CCnG keycaps:

It looks like there may be a TKL. Look at the picture with the keycap puller and the little manual you will see that the manual is for the DK9008 (08 as in 108 keys) and for the DK9087 (87 as in 87 keys, aka TKL). They normally use this to show different keyboard models. So there is hope gents!

and what does the fn key on the premier do?

assuming it does the exact same thing except the fn layer isn't printed  on the caps?

Damn you!  That is a link back to this thread.

I just spent the last 5 minutes reading this thread down to your post, clicking the link and starting all over again.

So what makes this a "premier" keyboard?  It is only Colemac, green keycaps, and a couple of extra switches.

Or is "Premier" just marketing hype?

Also, wouldn't you need an alternative keycap set if you wanted to switch to Colemac?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Haha. Sorry rowdy, I had originally posted the same topic under geekhack media and it got merged to this thread. :P

I think "premier" is just the series of this keyboard. No flashy LEDs -- just a plain, good looking keyboard with thick dye-sub PBT. I think ducky was just testing the waters with the 9008G2Pro series :)

i think premier is for 'premier typist keyboard'.

just look at the features it has.

shine = gamer, bling

zero = budget

zero shine = budget gamer

premier = typist, keyboard enthusiast.

Perhaps I don't understand this question correctly. People certainly use Dvorak and Colemak instead of qwerty. Does that justify special dip switches? Maybe not, but it's a neat feature that probably wasn't too hard to add and will make some people quite happy.

You can, but it's certainly useful to be able to do it on the keyboard itself… no fiddling with settings if you plug into a new computer.

Using dvorak, but I just use OS to change layout. I think a DIP switch for colemark is more useful than dvorak.

Unless you type a lot, as a programmer, I find Red or Clear makes no differences. Some ppl might prefer Red to Clear. All are just personal pref

AFAIK, they are not lubed. I think that has more to do with the varying tension on the contact leaf. The black slider is more slippery than the clear sliders on blue/green. I think both together contribute to the varied clickiness of the switch.

I think Matias did the layout implementation the best - there is a button on top of the (Dvorak RD) keyboard if you want to hot swap layouts.

If not for the cherry stabs, I'd say this is a better deal than the filco.

How can we talk about what a good deal it is when we don't know how much it costs? (Or do we?)

Well, considering it looks almost EXACTLY like the G2, we can expect similar prices. I got mine with greens for $144,

INPAD (a Taiwan distributor/partner) has Ducky Premier listed for 3090NTD for blue, brown, red and 3590NTD for green switches. No sign of whites yet, but I would imagine them to be the same price (or similar) to green.

I wonder why they can't do blue/white, blue/grey looks meh in my opinion.

Though they should really just sell the keycaps separately.
