Review of the Ducky One 3 Daybreak SF Mechanical Gaming Keyboard: Not Much Flak, But Some Clicks And Clacks

The words you are reading were typed in a tasteful effective manner.

With all the terminology for fruit-flavored switches, the fancy colors, and the hordes of aficionados who swear by them, mechanical keyboards are a mystery to me. Although I’m still unsure about what exactly fresh fruit has to do with anything, I’m starting to see why people nice these keyboards so much.

All I’ve ever used are budget keyboards. the type of wired, vintage keyboard seen in several retail stores, offices, and educational institutions. I’ve tried a few generic gaming keyboards in the past, but every time I used one to write or play games, I ended up going back to a tried-and-true design. Since starting full-time work in traditional word-writing, I’ve never really given the keyboard I use any thought.

The Ducky One 3 Daybreak SF has a striking blue design, subdued grey keycaps, and a yellow accent that all combine to create a stylish look. I must admit, I was attracted in by the design’s slight Vault-Tec vibe. How is the keyboard itself, though? Allow me to put out some clickety-clackety words to explain why this keyboard is so enjoyable to use as I am completely ignorant of the ins and outs of mechanical keyboard construction.

First off, these mechanical keyboards are clicky in a fantastic way, in case you still don’t get the point. Truth be said, the many switches they employ—Cherry Brown, Cherry Red, etc.—are responsible for how clicky it is. You can choose a keyboard feel that is ideal for you by adjusting the noise, resistance, and travel distance. For me? Because I assumed Cherry Brown would work for me, I chose it, and lo and behold, I adore it. I gain strength from the pleasurable clicks I make as I write this review.

It also comes with a few extra accessories, such as tools to remove keycaps so you can easily clean the keyboard or change the keycap designs completely. Even a few alternative keycaps are provided in the box in case you prefer a more pronounced yellow accent over a variety of blues and greys.

There isn’t much software to fiddle with, and the keyboard is simple to connect to and start using. You can update it, which is quick and simple to accomplish, but other than that, you’re ready to go. It offers several features, such as controls for RGB backlighting, which may be switched between a few settings or turned off entirely. This is a little more complicated, and I’m still not sure how to handle it specifically, but if you take the time to look for a helpful person online who can explain it to you, it’s not too difficult to comprehend and set to the mode you prefer.

Initially, the periphery also seemed to be quite small, which makes sense given that it is smaller. It took me a few days to adjust from my boring old-fashioned non-click keyboard to this one because it is precisely a 65 percent-sized keyboard, but I now value its small size. It’s orderly and tidy, and it turns out that I didn’t need a numeric keypad nearly as frequently as I had thought.
Although there are certain details I haven’t looked into, such as the concave, angled keycaps, I don’t know much about these technological advancements or have any point of comparison. I can only say that the Ducky One 3 Daybreak SF is a joy to use and that I’m eager to explore the world of mechanical keyboards with what seems to be the right place to begin. From this point on, I’ll also keep on clicking and clacking while I work. Excellent.
