Mechanical Keyboards Makes Dreams Come True
« on: Mon, 12 January 2015, 18:56:54 »
Here's my keyboard. 
87041-0

Most of you probably see something like this:
87043-1

I see this:
87045-2

I don't hate non-black color schemes on keycaps but, to me, a red WASD on an otherwise monochrome keycap set is not in itself a good color scheme.

I've been searching for black WASD keycaps for my Ducky Shine for over a month, to no avail.  Then I stumbled upon Mechanical Keyboards' "Name it. We'll do our best to get it. (v2.0)" thread.  With little expectation of success, I asked about black Ducky Shine WASD keycaps.  Mechanical Keyboards quickly responded.  Not only was Mechanical Keyboards able to get me a set of black WASD keycaps for the Ducky Shine, they got them to me in three days.  Thanks, Justin!  From Mechanical Keyboards' willingness to handle a custom request; to the communication; to the ease of completing the transaction, in spite of having to use a workaround; dealing with Mechanical Keyboards was pleasant and every step of the process was simple and painless.


I look forward to doing business with Mechanical Keyboards again.



Now my keyboard is one sexy beast.

Also: props to GeekHack for bringing vendors and buyers together.

Nice to hear the good feedback :)

MK.com is an active GH vendor - interaction with the community provides so many benefits on both sides!

By the way, what happened to your original black WASD?  Both of my Ducky Shines with black keycaps had black WASD, and red WADS included as an optional mod.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís 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

Thats good to hear! How did your keyboard come with only red wasd? Either way, both looked just fine in my opinion!

My keyboard only had red WASD keycaps because I bought it used.

True MK are a group that delivers on what they promise compared to most other retailers.

Always keep coming back to them since they do provide all the gear that matters when you're a Keyboard Addict  :thumb: .
