Ducky Shine 3 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Review

Quack Quack ?!



Ducky are a well-known brand in the now saturated mechanical keyboard market, but despite only arriving to UK shores early last year, Ducky have gone on to become one of CCL’s most popular keyboard brands and with new models released this year, and even newer models expected in the next month they are showing no signs of slowing down.

Today I am going to be looking at the latest model, the full size Ducky Shine 3, which is the 3rd iteration of their flagship keyboard and comes packed with lots of interesting features.
