A couple important notes for this round: 1) The PCBA has underglow RGB LEDs presoldered. We just don't have updated images for the page. 2) The images of the case colors are not the most accurate, as it's often difficult to capture colors accurately under studio lighting. The PHOTOS tab has plenty of user-submitted photos showing the various case colors in real life settings. Please view those photos to help you get an idea of what the colors look like in person.

June 24 Update: I wanted to give everyone a quick update on the Preonic orders. There has been a delay in delivery of a couple components that are required to create the PCBA. We are expecting this to delay the expected ship date of the Preonic by around a month. The new ship date from our warehouse will be August 15th instead of earlier mentioned July 15th. We are working closely with the manufacturer to improve on the ship date, and are hopeful that we can move this up as we make progress. We’ll keep the community updated in this thread. July 23rd Update: Asked the vendor for an update today and they said they're running a few days behind. We've built some buffer into our schedule, so for now August 15th is still the ship date that we're working towards. I'll update again in about a week to see whether the manufacturer has caught up, is on track, or has fallen further behind. July 28th Update: Asked the vendor for another update, and they've pushed their "Ready" date back yet again. Originally it was end of July then it was August 4th (which we still felt okay with the August 15th ship date), but now we're hearing August 10th. So assuming August 10th is the correct date, we won't be hitting the August 15th ship date, (it typically takes 10-15 days to get from the factory in China, board a plane, land in the USA, clear customs, get trucked to our warehouse, and then be counted/shelved and ready to ship out). So, best guess right now is August 20-25th range, and we'll get more clarity around August 5th about how things are lining up. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but want to keep you guys up to date with the latest happenings.

Is there an easy way to change the "ship to" address? Or is it necessary to contact customer service?

It's a groupbuy....so it could get delayed indefinitely. This is how groupbuys work. Its not a product thats is in stock. They take your money and the go and get it produced. Unfortunately sometimes things happen that can extend the eta or even cancel the production. Like a worldwide pandemic for instance.

I can confirm that you will indeed receive an email notification when your order ships.

Yes, you will receive an email and tracking number. That being said it may not show you anything. 50% of the time the tracking number shows my orders sitting at one location up until it gets dropped at my door.

I accidentally changed the driver outside of dfu mode so I just had to uninstall the keyboard driver to fix it. Essentially there's two drivers if I understand correctly.

reddit.com/r/mechmarket there are always people who get excited, buy and sell (almost like new ones) because they decide either ortholinear isn't for them/that they like planck more than preonic or they want something else.
