I was surprised that there was a signifigant improvement in typing skills. On my old keyboard I was only averaging about 76wpm with a 4% error. With this keyboard my WPM averaged 93 and my error rate dropped down to 1%.
I am not going to lie, these are a bit noisy, especially on a wooden keyboard tray. But I think that's a fair tradeoff for the increased accuracy and speed when typing.
Gameplay this keyboard is amazing. I don't have to worry about not hitting a key or hitting the wrong key. Each key has that satisfying click that I ensures I hit fire when I meant to hit fire.
The only negative, but not worthy of loosing a star, is that plugged into my motherboard the keyboard still glows even while the computer is off. That's because the USB ports on my computer are charging ports and remain on while the computer is off.
I did a lot of filtering/research for my new mechanical and had a few requirements:
- Brown Switches
- Non-TKL (Ten Key Less)
- Back lighting
- A logical layout of the body
- All keys must be their regular/normal size and layout.
I wasn't overall picky about the stabilizers, although Costar would be a nice bonus for whatever I picked.
The Ducky Shine (especially the Shine II) definitely met all the requirements and was what I originally wanted to get, but it was completely sold out at the time and I needed a new keyboard (old one was broken, I was running on some free board). I highly recommend the Ducky to anyone who is looking for a keyboard, and my roommate bought one a couple days back, but the Durandal has been great too.
When I got the Durandal on amazon it was about 60% of its current price at the time of this review, and if you can find it in the low 100s it's an absolute steal.
I had considered the CM Storm Trigger CM Storm Trigger - Fully Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Brown CHERRY MX Switches (SGK-6000-GKCM1-US), but I couldn't get over the break in the bezel along the bottom. If that's not an issue then that is also a great keyboard.
Deck makes some awesome boards also, but they will cost quite a bit more than the Durandal or the Ducky.
The Durandal feels great, it's highly responsive, and has NKRO over USB.
I have just a few minor complaints:
- The spacebar is loud/feels springy in a weird way.
- The backlight on the spacebar is only in the center, giving it a weird cylon-eye thing going.
- The status lights (numlock, etc) are little shield things that look a little weird.
- While the backlighting on the F-keys looks fine, the subtext below the keys is much more faded since the LED is focused on the key label.
- The software feels/looks like something from 1999. It seems useless.
If you want a mechanical keyboard with brown switches, the Durandal is a perfect choice. Definitely check out the Ducky boards also. Either way you won't be disappointed.
Just wanted to throw a quick update. I was having an issue where my P key was sometimes double typing and it was annoying to no end. I emailed Tesoro support and got a response the same day:
"The "P" double or triple chattering issue. This is the switch contact point issue.
Remove the keycap, push the switch stem down and use a dust blower to blow it inside.
Rubbing alcohol can be use, maybe 1 or 2 drops will do, and then blow dry it."
Their tip seemed to fix the problem. If you want to remove the key I suggest using a tool like this one: WASD Keyboards Wire Keycap Puller Tool
There is one quirk, though, that is a bit tiresome, and that is the repeat which is, well, quirky. Sometimes when I touch a key, it immediately starts repeating. I say quirky because this is inconsistent. Most of the time the repeat function is fine, but occasionally it just takes off. More than once, I have had the Ctrl+Z (undo) key combination wipe out masses of text by running dozens of undo's in a second or two. I have adjusted the keyboard repeat delay and repeat speed to go slower, but only time will tell if this resolves the problem or not. Other than the keyboard repeat (maybe the keyboard is just mad at me for tapping on it???) I very much like this board - particularly the backlit keys.

If you want a Cherry MX Brown like me, this was some years ago the only choice as Razer only used the other Cherry Keys.Read more
