It has been over a year since we last covered Ducky keyboards, and by gosh that is a few months too many. The company has been expanding their product portfolio since, getting into not only mice but gaming chairs and other peripherals to meet the demands of the ever-growing gaming PC market of 2019. This does not mean their keyboard division has gone unattended either, with many new keyboards shown off at Computex earlier this year. The new One 2 SF was among them, and thanks to Ducky, we have one right here to examine in more detail.
The One 2 SF from Ducky is a small form factor keyboard. Indeed, the "SF" in the name stands for "Sixty Five", which tells us that this is a 65% form factor keyboard. There is no standard for the 65% form factor with manufacturers choosing to go with a key layout that they believe works best, or is requested by users. Indeed, when it comes to compact keyboards such as the Ducky One 2 SF ergonomics is key in giving end users a typing experience in which they don't move their fingers much and have a mouse closer and in line with their shoulder's width, but with enough dedicated keys to make that compromise feel worthwhile. We will go over how functional the One 2 SF is and more in this review that begins with a look at the specifications below.
