I wish Ducky Shine keyboards where available in my country.

But, I see that this particular keyboard is available for $146 in the US, witch is a bit unfair, when compared to the European prices.

I really don't get the whole mechanical keyboard pricing. Some of them are good and cheap, others are good and expensive. Does really brand and shape matter that much?

I still use a Logitech Illuminated keyboard, which btw. is awezumz.

Great lighting features but apart from that I don't see why you wouldn't just pick up the K90 which is much reasonably priced and features the all-powerful volume scroller (which I couldn't live without now).

Like anything I think it's to do with volume. Those Cherry switches aren't cheap, and so if you are a low-volume manufacturer then you can't get the same wholesale prices, so the price goes up.

It's also dependant upon other features. This particular keyboard has n-key rollover. You can hold down the whole keyboard and every key registers. That's an expensive thing to implement.

So combine the two and you have a wildly differing price structure. Although equally there is some "brand pricing" as there is everywhere else. An Alienware isn't worth what they charge, a Vuitton bag doesn't cost more to make than a M&S one, the list is endless. Some manu's just choose to charge more.

The 6-key/n-key rollover dipswitch is there for Mac compatibility, since the OSX (AFAIK) can handle 6 no problem, but gets confused with n-key rollover. In case that was one of the seemingly pointless options

You could try tigerimports, even with shipping from overseas it's still about the normal price (not sure about duty/vat though)
