The Ducky OEM "Disco" from Mechanical Keyboards Inc features cutting edge RGB LED functionality in a sleek, classic Tenkeyless layout. Released in late December 2015, this is cutting edge. The RGB LEDs are fully hardware programmable so you don't have to install bloatware / annoying software on your machine to program the lights. Mechanical Keyboards Inc partnered with Ducky on the Disco so we could build the ultimate RGB TKL keyboard. We took our favorite TKL case (Shine 3), designed a custom dual-layer PCB to utilize the incredible RGB lighting functionality of a Shine 5, and combined them with super-sharp ABS keycap legends for superior readability. Keyboards, quite simply, don't get much prettier than this. The Disco is available with the new Blue, Brown, Red, and Black KBT switches.

The MX-Cherry Blues on my Pok3r felt great and I feel like the Blues on the Disco are pretty comparable, but definitely have a lighter actuation force than the Cherry switches and seem to be a little more "Clicky" than the Cherry's. I have found myself missing the PBT keycaps from my Pok3r (Non-LED version came with PBT) and I will be switching out the default ABS keycaps on the Disco shortly as they feel somewhat cheap to me.
RGB on this keyboard is AWESOME, but I wish they had a few more pre-programmed modes right out the box. Hope that's just a firmware thing and will be added to in the future (fingers crossed).
Overall I really like the keyboard as it fixes some of those annoyances I had with the Pok3r. If you're on the fence about the Disco or just can't make up your mind, go for it. It's a great keyboard. You won't regret it.
The build quality is excellent. The frame is sturdy as heck, with no flex. The KBT (Greetech) switches are very similar to MX Browns, but I like them even more. They have a more noticeable actuation bump than the Cherry and they are smooth as heck.
Lighting modes are limited, but perfect for basic needs. Don't expect Corsair-like ability to run stuff like Pac-Man and Snake. The lighting is uniform and looks great.
A great keyboard made by Ducky.
UPDATE - Less than a month into using this keyboard, I've noticed a defect with the LEDs. When no color is assigned to a set of seven keys (i.e. they're off), they still have a dim red glow visible. I'm keeping the rating at five stars, which it truly deserves, but if I see this issue occurring with anybody else, I'm bumping it down a notch. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Get this keyboard if you need a no BS RGB LED TKL mechanical keyboard.
A software update would make this a wonderful keyboard.
