Are we still expecting the early ship date, or have we gone back to the July 15th ship date?

What awful shipping method do you people pick with Fedex? My shipment left NJ 16 days ago. It's be puttering around Washington State for the last few days, including going from a local Fedex store 1 mile from me on Friday (the *scheduled* delivery day), sat for the weekend, and is not on route to the postal distribution center 25 miles south of me. Oh, and today is again the "scheduled" delivery day. I don't expect Amazon prime punctuality but I can get things shipped from China faster. I've driven across the US from coast to coast in less time.

So, regardless of what switch I put in the keyboard, the sockets for my x & w keys don't seem to be working correctly. Are there any easy solutions to this? I'm tired of working on this for multiple hours.

Yeah, I opened a ticket on the 16th. Still waiting on a reply, but I'm being patient. Edit: Got a reply on the 27th, and have shipped the board back out today. So if anyone is still patiently waiting on a reply, that's how long it took for mine.

It depends, if youre lucky and they end up with canceled orders from this batch it could be early but dont get your hopes up. Youd more than likely be waiting until about october. Edit: I see theyve opened preorders again for 3 months so it might actually be later than October

+1 to @Snapper's comment - is this unavailable because it is sold out or is it just not being offered?

Does this PCB work with the switches on the APT (XMIT?) keyboard with hall effect keys?

Hall effect switches and MX-type switches work using completely different principles, they are fundamentally not interchangeable.

Will Cherry MX Low-profile switches fit this frame, or are the stabilizers for the shift/enter/space/backspace keys too tall for LP switches? Will the pins (the metal parts on the bottom that connect to the PCB, I'm not sure what the precise term is) even fit into this frame?

Thanks for your suggestion! I'd like to see whether more brands go introduce LP switches into their product line in the coming years. I know Logitech recently came out with low profile keyboards, but they're both so pricey for what they are and I just don't like the overly stiff feel of the Romer GL switches.

LP also isn't compatible with most aftermarket keycaps
