    Ducky Shine 3 or Corsair K70?

    I'm looking at getting a mechanical keyboard sometime next week and my options are the Ducky Shine 3 or the Corsair K70.

    I like the aesthetics of the K70 and the media keys but I've heard they have issues with the LED's fading.

    I also like the DS3's simple look and I've heard that they are real high quality.

    What would be the better/more reliable KB?

    (and for the plebs who don't know much about the keyboards. Don't comment which ever one you think looks best...)
    Oh hai der.

    Ducky Shine 3.

    I wanted to make a pun with it.

    But decided to save your life.

    You're welcome.

    To be honest man, they're both good quality. The thing I like about the K70 is how easy it is to clean it, but the Ducky is such a fucking solid keyboard. You'll never be able to chose definitively unless you had them side by side.

    That is what I was thinking. I'm going to try my friends K70 sometime next week then head to the store with the Duckys and try those.
    Oh hai der.
