I like buying fancy shiz and all but I don't understand how this aluminium case is almost as much as the keyboard itself.
Compare it to the CTRL High-Profile and it starts adding up:
The case is just the expensive part of the build.
- CTRL HP - $250
- CTRL HP Barebones - $200 (ergo, switches + caps are worth $50 -- makes sense)
- CTRL HP Case - $145 (or "Barebones" without a PCB and diffuser, worth $45 and $10, respectively)
Well thanks for the breakdown my fren, still blows my mind you would think the pcb would be the most pricey but hey what do I know (:
The solid cnc aluminum cases are what makes these keyboards expensive, and sturdy/well made. If the ALT or CNTRL came in plastic cases they would probably be $90 for an ALT and $130 for a CNTRL. I just purchased an e-white 60% Aluminium case (smaller than both CNTRL and ALT) and it was $150 for the case alone, nothing else.
