I’ve always been wondering – what’s the purpose of opting for a much more expensive keyboard when there are other lower-priced ones, yet they’re in the same family of keyboards? The answer is not only because of the aesthetics, but also for comfort. Comfort leads to a more pleasurable typing, and for me who uses the keyboard every minute, it leads to less frustration. This is the Ducky One with PBT Dye-Sub keycaps, also known as the DKON1508 – which is a full-sized Ducky One mechanical keyboard, but this time instead of using ABS doubleshot keycaps, Ducky opted included PBT Dye-Sub keycaps by default. The name is a mouthful, so let’s just call it the DKON1508. In many cases, the DKON1508 will be exactly the same as the Ducky One TKL, which we reviewed here.
The DKON1508 comes with a rather interesting twist to the big logo printed at the front – with a black and silver Ducky Channel logo and a black coloured “ONE”, san-serif. Opening up the box reveals the same as the Ducky One TKL – a user manual (you’re gonna need this!), a warranty guide, a micro USB cable, a plastic cover for the DKON1508, and the DKON1508 itself.
