Actually the switches themselves have no issues.

What most users have issues with is the printing wearing off, or the LEDs becoming uneven for the backlit ones.

Which has issues? The Leopold or Ducky?

Never really understood backlit keyboards, it just doesn't make sense (but then again, i never owned one, quite a fanboy of the non-chiclet Lenovo Thinkpad keyboards). Sure, you can see where the keys are, but you can't see what's printed on the keys?

They can be handy if there's not a lot of light where your computer is. On a laptop they're invaluable but on a desktop... Lamp.

NICE, are those both the same headphones though? (My powers are failing me, I don't know what they are...)
The top is Ultrasone HFI-2200 (aluminum plates) and HFI-580's

Cannot say specifically. Its a property of the design more than brand. Each key has it's own LED, and their brightness reduces over time, by varying amounts.

Wait, so each key on the ducky is illuminated?

If you go for the backlit ones, yes. There's an LED underneath each key.

Ok, if I got one, it would have no back-light, I have my lights on whenever I type...

I'm using one with no back light. If you can touch-type, there's no need for any light anyways.

Me!

 

No, seriously, heh. Basically for two reasons.. 1) there's all kinda crap that enters my keyboard (and therefore requiring the ability to be able to clean it now and then), and I do once in a blue moon treat the keyboard with a nice drink, and 2) I've had some "multimedia" and fancy looking keyboards, my preference now goes out to the boring and simple higher quality ones.

Just chiming in to say that I'm yet again finding myself incredibly impressed with my WASD keyboard. November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and the challenge is to write a 50,000 word novel, or 50,000 words of a novel, in the month of November. A mechanical keyboard is proving to be absolutely brilliant for sitting down at the computer and typing for hours. I love it. My speed has improved, I think my accuracy has improved, and I feel better with my writing in general. If you're on the edge of deciding to get a keyboard, I'd highly recommend it.
