Ducky Realforce Taiwan Edition
« on: Thu, 03 December 2015, 17:12:09 »

I'm not really sure what this is or if it is new. But I couldn't find any talk about it.


I couldn't quite tell from the weak translation how the 30 and 45 weights work into it and how they are arranged.

I am fairly sure it is coming in uniform 30g and 45g, both silenced.  :)

LOL yeah I was thinking the same, now I have to write my comment again.  :P

Though I am also curious as to how we can acquire it, typically whatever edition Topre only sells within that specific country.

I wonder if we can get massdrop to talk to them.

Pretty sure it's just like this except all white keycaps.  :P

This is the previous Ducky special edition, which is 45g uniform (non-silent).

I didn't know this existed. I missed it.

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.

In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Ooh, looks nice.

I might be missing something, but where does Ducky come into this? It seems like every component is a Realforce part, except maybe the caps, but BoW doesn't scream "Ducky" to me.  :P

I think Ducky was acting as a distributor and they must have thought that the product needed the Ducky name to perform in the Taiwanese market

Or maybe Ducky is lending their manufacturing plant to Topre?

I'm probably a dummy for wanting 30g topre as my first Topre board, but I really want this. I have used Gateron Clears and enjoyed them, despite a puff of air from a can of PC duster gas literally being enough to depress them.

The model number ends in S....maybe that is a clue? Definitely not worth the price unless its silenced. Would like to know more before spending so much.

I'm guessing the "S" at the end of the model number denotes that it's silenced.

Well, I mentioned it in my interview with Topre. They told me they were going to release a "stormtrooper" version (and vice versa), distributed by Ducky. I guess this is it (and a future White case+black keycaps?)

Edit:

"Stormtrooper (Black on White & White on Black) Realforces will be distributed by Ducky in the future. They will be 30g uniform.

Totally happy to see the word "future" here, since that storm trooper look is so boss, and the weight I wanted to try out of this collaboration was the 30g model, so this is fantastic. I'll just wait it out for my first Topre and Ducky board all in one!

Yea, i'm interested in trying the 30g, but i'm not a fan of the black body white caps.
I like the stormtrooper one though.

and i dont like full size keyboards that much.

What's with Ducky and just offering full size boards?

Give up on the Ducky Mini and bring back the Shine in TKL already

Where's the Ducky rep at to answer our questions? :(

They featured us on the video where they showed the making of the Tuhaojin keyboard, but we haven't seen any official reps from Ducky on here.
the best keyboard is the one in front of you

I love that video, he's just randomly typing nonsense while staring at the geekhack homepage.

Seems they are both silent versions.
"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

I am so tempted to pick up one of these.
30g silenced seems interesting.
Need to find somewhere in Hong Kong/Asia to purchase one of these.

I can get the Leopold Realforce 104UB-KB45S (XF140S) locally in Hong Kong for a whopping 3000HKD, which equivalent to ~387USD.

Same retailer (Keyboard Hell) also has the 10th anniversary 55g 87Us for 3000HKD.

Hey man, no problem.

Got a saw? CUT OFF THE TEN KEY!  >:D

Nah, I know that's impractical (and not sure how hard it'd be to mod a capacitative board). I actually really like full-size boards. I'm of the unfortunate position (and unpopular) at the moment where TKL vs full-size is like "go big or go home" for me. If I wanted a layout similar to TKL, I'd go 75%, though I know that some people have issues with the lack of a gap in the arrow keys.

Also, the aesthetics of a "slab of keys" isn't everyone's cup of tea.
