keyboard died all together.....
Waiting for massdrop to do another drop on this, hopefully based on the Ducky Shine 5 :)) #countmein
The LED to the NumLk key on my board died.

are you using the keyboard on a Mac by any chance? I thought that's what happened to mine (along with the Scroll Lock button), but it turns out it just never turns on when booted into OS X (even when using lighting effects that supposedly applies to all keys). Booted into Windows and they both lit up :)

I have a PC with Windows 10. Rebooting did the trick. Thanks!
If anyone has a laser engraved edition they'd like to sell, I'm looking to buy. Skype name is fluxercry. I'm in Canada.
I have two of thesee for sale with blank keycaps my skype is j3avons if you are interested. i am in the UK
No news from massdrop on what is happening even after a few mails to support an waiting a week
I was able to get mine on the bazaar sale and I could not be happier. It's the first keyboard with Clear switches I've ever used and I am a fan!
The keyboard finally arrived at my house today in the UK.
Although I'm not used to the layout due to using a crappy Darkwraith keyboard for so long, I got to admit that this keyboard feels great to type on and the keycaps look superb.
The wait was long, but it was definitely worth it. Now I can finally praise the sun to my heart's content with my followers.
The keyboard did take far longer to ship than my expectation, or anyone's expectations really. On the bright side, at least it's now here.
I hope you enjoy your new keyboard when it arrives brave warrior, cause so far it's been magnificent to me.
Edit: Damn, that's quite unlucky. Oh well, you'll get it soon enough.
This keyboard is GODLY
Just got done fixing my keyboard the fact that the space bar was not the same, or greater switch weighting as the letter keys really did not work well with I just put a cherry grey switch in the brown spacebars place and man is it much better . Very happy with the drop thanks.
I ended up putting White Vortex PBT caps on this keyboard and moving the Blank Blue/Gray to another keyboard. The LED effects are just too awesome on this Shine 4, not to see them in my opinion. I first put black PBT caps but I really like the brightness with the white caps. If anyone is interested in this setup, drop me an e-mail and we can work something out. I have one extra. happyhoundsmichigan@gmail.com

Well I'm out, so there will be another keyboard with Blanks going spare.
Thanks for processing my refund pretty quickly today Massdrop. Wish I hadn't had to wait a whole month though. Also wish I hadn't bought the Vortex PBT keycap set to go with this :(
They arrived pretty promptly lol

What were wrong with the Vortex Caps? I'm considering buying them for this keyboard!
Pierserine
He wasn't saying that there was anything wrong with the Vortex Caps, not at all.
The problem is that he originally bought them for this specific keyboard, which still hasn't arrived to the UK after an entire month of shipping and thus had no choice but to get a refund.
Hey Massdrop would you like to communicate with us over the shipping issue? its has been a month since the last update on tracking so where is it? If I can get stuff shipped from China in 2 days then how can you be taking so long and not updating us? It is actually starting to sound like you have lost the keyboards or something. Please reply to one of us so that we know what is going on.
An entire month and yet still no update on tracking. I honestly wasn't expecting this to take this long to ship, judging purely from the previous drops I've been involved with.
I really hope the keyboard arrives soon, otherwise communicating with my fellow sun praisers will eventually become tiresome with this hopeless Darkwraith keyboard.

So after requesting a refund on the keyboard (30 days have passed) I got this reply from Massdrop:
"There have been reported delays with packages due to the Royal Mail strikes in the UK. Due to this, packages have been redirected back to sender (Massdrop) and we will be dispatching shipments via UPS, for more reliable delivery of your package. We're sorry for the delay and I would like to know if you would like me to re-dispatch your keyboard."
It sounds like rubbish to me... The last Royal Mail strike I remember was around May time I think... the tracking info told me DHL was going to hand it over to Yodel for final delivery in the UK... nothing to do with Royal Mail.
Also, the tracking info still hasn't updated saying "Returned to Sender"... It's still in Seacaucus!
man... can't believe this showed up on bazaar.... i just recently purchased a ducky shine 4 Fire 69 edition... but i'd rather have this... oh well...
I still find the choice of using the lighter switch for the spacebar questionable.
If anyone is interested in purchasing my drop feel free to contact me at KernalsEgg@Gmail.com. I went for the blank key caps. There's nothing wrong with it as far as I can tell (I have plugged it in and tested it), I'm just not a fan of the keys. if you're worried about the cost of shipping for whatever reason I live in Australia. Unlike some people have reported, it arrived undamaged.
Any chance we'll see this drop again, since 871 people have requested it?
Still sat here in the UK looking at my tracking info saying the keyboard is in NJ :(
DHL won't do anything unless the sender contacts them, Massdrop won't contact DHL on individual shipments... but there are a number of us still waiting?
If I still have nothing by 30 days from shipping they'll refund or resend the package. I just want the keyboard.
Breadbin
Yeah also in the UK an still waiting if I knew it would be this slow would of just paid the extra to get it from a normal vendor
SmokeyOne
It's ridiculous at this point... I was fully aware the drop was going to take a while, but didn't account for an extra month delivery time.
Might have to go for a refund on this if it's not here next week
Still waiting for mine to leave NJ to come to the UK. I've contacted both Massdrop and DHL and had standard responses. Hopefully something changes soon and it actually leaves the States.

It took me over 2 months to get mine ,and I live in Canada.It will probably take a long time for you t get it.
Caffine
How much did you end up paying after customs n taxes?
The Led was too cool on the Shine 4 to leave the gray blue keys on it. They look better on my RapidI with the white backplate, it looks cool. I put black pbt caps on the Shine 4....lools cool some the LED effects are distracting lol

I have also NOT received the red WASD caps. Other than that, love the keyboard. The backlight with no backlight caps is puzzling, but as someone who didn't care about lighting, mostly just the board itself, it's not an issue for me.
Is anyone else finding these clear switches fatiguing to type on? My first time typing on them and I'm struggling to like them as they're just too hard to depress.
Jimstah87
Wierdly I'm finding these more fatiguing than the MX Blacks I came from before this, which are rated slightly heavier (60cN v 55cN for the Clears).
Maybe it's the sharp increase in force required at the bump, but so far I say I actually prefer my Blacks. Hopefully I warm to these.
email me at happyhoundsrehab@gmail.com if you're interested in purchasing this keyboard. I have one extra NIB
$32 CAD duty fee in Canada. A bit higher than I was expecting but I'm glad it's finally here.
Mined arrived today. Am I the only one who don't get the 4 red WASD keycaps as in the picture on the description page? Is is normal?
Khiin55
I did not receive them either.
Khiin55
I didn't get the 4 WASD keycaps either, thought it was included for all ducky shine 4's.
Mine arrived yesterday and i love it! Its my first mechanical keyboard and feels great, and I'm also surprised at how fingerprint resistant the brushed plastic is. Clears are awesome, and browns for modifier keys are really good. Overall, very happy with it!
Yep got mine today, .... wow does it suck :/
the keycaps are utterly terrible... as is the lighting....
my first and most definitely LAST Mechanical keyboard i'll spend any cash on,,,,,, caps seriously NEED to be doubleshot, not engraved..... this is trash to me in every way :/
Mine arrived a few days ago. Ducky has been and probably always will be the best keyboard manufacturer, but a couple of the choices the community made for this custom one just puzzle me. I have probably a dozen keyboards with one weight on the letters and another spring weight on the mods and other keys, just like this one...but you always put the LOWER weight springs in the center because that's where you want to avoid fatigue, and having stronger springs on the other keys makes them less likely to be pressed by mistake. The weighting is just ass-backwards on this design. And the other thing is, why in the world would someone use PBT's that are not backlit on a backlit keyboard? So far Vortex is the only brand that makes aftermarket backlit PBTs (Deck also has a backlit PBT on their Hassium but they aren't available as keycaps alone.) I just don't understand the logic of ruining the backlighting by dampening it with non-backlit keycaps. It's not as if Ducky's ABS caps are inferior - in fact, other than the German company that made the Galaxy-Class PBT set (sorry my mind draws a blank on their name) no one makes higher quality ABS keycaps than Ducky. Not once have I ever noticed any shine or wear on ANY Ducky ABS keycap I've ever had, so can someone maybe nicely explain to me this weird desire to put non-backlit keycaps on a backlit keyboard?

Why do u complain about things that were clear for everyone before the drop ended ? Why did u buy this keyboard, if you don't like the things that make it special ?
Sorry, but I don't get it.
Btw: Mine arrived today and so far i like it. The only thing that bothers me is the fact, that i can see the stamps through the some of the keycaps.
Jalucian
Regarding the spring weight, some think that the center keys are normally hit with fingers with more strength (index and middle finger), and the outer keys depressed by pinkie, ring finger should be easier to press as those fingers have less strength.
About the caps, well I switched them out for the granite, ;P dont really care about the LEDs.
Just recieved mine and it isn't being recognized by either of my computers. Sent them an email and hopefully they'll send around that firmware update some people have been talking about
