Well that is a bummer I missed this drop... Thanks for letting me know it has already ended... I thought it was going to be released on or around 3/10 and then end shortly there after for shipping by 4/22. But if anyone has any good suggestions on where to buy a ErgoDox pcb board that supports LED's please let me know it would be greatly appreciated...
I guess it was a good thing that I bought those brown switches recently after all.
Anyhow thanks again everyone and I look forward to any suggestions on where to get the pcb boards.

Falbatech sells ErgoDox components, but they're based in Poland so it's probably not an economical option if you live in the states. I think there was also a US based store that was manufacturing ErgoDox PCBs too, but I don't remember who that was and I haven't checked since the ErgoDox Infinity was launched. Also, you might be able to order an ErgoDok EZ. I think they recently shipped to backers, so I would expect them to start retail sales soon if thy haven't already. I don't really know much about their project beyond that, though.
Of course, all these options are for the original ErgoDox, not the Infinity version. As far as I know, the only people manufacturing the ED Infinity is Massdrop. I also know that the production for the last drop consumed the world supply of the LCDs that are built into each half, so it would be difficult to self-manufacture unless the LCD supplier increased capacity since last time.
Your best bet to get this keyboard is probably going to be to wait for the next drop. Sucks, I know, but it's worth the wait.

I've got a Falbatech ErgoDox plate, and I'm pretty disappointed. There were large aluminum burrs all over the place, the key switch cut-outs weren't well aligned, and the finishing process appears to be to hand a powered wire wheel brush to an angry, untrained intern.
After some work with deburring tools and needle files, it's usable, but it's not worth the cost + shipping, IMO.

"...was manufacturing the ErgoDox PCBs..." Maybe this one: https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=537
(No, I don't have a set. I'm waiting for the next drop.)

Ah, yes. That was it. They don't appear to carry cases though...
Not that it really matters. IMO, the ErgoDox Infinity is what everyone who wants an ErgoDox kit should get.
