Howdy, hope everyone is staying safe during these times and staying indoors!
Here are some more pictures of the board in non-studio lighting. I've spoken to the vendor about alps compatibility and because it is not as popular as MX, they've decided to keep the PCB MX for now. Additionally, sourcing keycaps for different layouts that the PCB supports would be tough. I'm inquiring more about the badge for the HHKB top so please hold tight until then.
I've attached a reference the vendor sent me for color options -
If you have any questions, please let me know! Thanks for reading.
Please ask them to consider a HHKB top without a badge. It really ruins the symmetry.
but that badge is what make this board different from Modern m0110 ran on GH. or alf x scott G60
Just to clarify the one you are holding in non studio light is the ewhite?
Awesome. Also thanks for having the heads up to put a second pcb option in.
I'm assuming this is going to be manufactured in China? I know there are a lot of GBs going on and am just a bit concerned if a August delivery estimate is legitimate or enthusiastically hopeful.
Considering there is a worldwide pandemic going on, be prepared for a delay.
Yeah, I am thinking the same thing unfortunately.
Thats pretty much true of any groupbuy at this point. Time or money. You will be able to get these on the second hand market with markup and they will ship in 3 days or you can wait and get it at this price. The beauty of Drop is at least they won't ghost you on a groupbuy and take your money like what can happen when individuals run groupbuys.
I understand, but it doesn’t hurt to ask for another option. Many people seem torn about the badge as well.
Those colours are CONSIDERABLY different than the ones in the photoset. I'm confused about the two-tone colors shown in the above samples -- are those meant to be the top/bottom of the board with different lighting, or will the top and bottom of the board actually have a different colored finish?
Is there a way to get the keycaps set for hhkb layout too? I don't know for others but i got a hard time to find available hhkb keycaps for MX switches, especially for some keys like Control, back slash and delete. Thx!
Not actually that hard to find sets with those keys. Most custom keysets have them. If the standard kits don’t have everything you need, might need to get an additional set usually called “extended” or “exotic” mods. There are bunch of in stock caps (outside of drop) that have them as well, like epbt doubleshots and maxkey sets. The biggest problem I find is having 1.5u Cmd/OS keys if you want the correct legends on a mac.
Thank you so much! I found the epbt spectrum set on kbdfans and love it a lot. Will wait until it is for sale.
Badge will be removed for the shipped version to members.
Great! So it will be completely smooth, no square cutout at all?
Yes similar to the modern M0110
Is there any chance this gets extended another couple of days? *cries in weird pay schedule*
I would if I could, but unfortunately can't modify dates as they're already in our system. I'll be more mindful about running stuff in conjunction with pay schedules in the future!
Thanks for the reply, maybe there will be extras, or I just get to save my money. Maybe next time.
