I ended up grabbing the True fox bare bones kit. I'm glad this happened to be the one that caught my eye because it's a freakin great deal. $135! Makes up for the huge L on the keycap drop.
whats the bare bones kit ?
i got one assembled with mx clear
Nice! I had to go with an assembled kit. Not the switches I really wanted....but still glad I finally got a Whitefox.
No switches/leds/keycaps or USB included. The only thing I'm not crazy about is I have to go with the truefox layout, but hopefully it's something I can get used to
What layout and switches?
Truefox with Gatreon Blues.
Never used Gatreon switches so little concerned there but willing to try it.
Gateron switches are in many people's opinion the best Cherry clone. And when it comes to blues I actually prefer Gateron over Cherry. They're awesome
I read good things. Many echo what you say.
Either way we are both lucky today. Given that the next drop may not be for some time only 153 got Whitefox boards today.
I had to pull into a parking lot and get the drop on my phone cause traffic was bad.
Enjoy your build!
what do you guys think about truefox layout? which is the one i got.
I'm hesitant about it, will definitely take some time to get used to.
I think I will make some backspace mistakes for a bit.
Aria would probably have been my first choice. but I see no reason the Truefox won't work.
On the photo comparison i do not see much of a difference..
For me the backspace issue will be the biggest headache. On the Truefox the backspace is in a non standard location, one row down. On the Aria the backspace is in the normal top row.
one or the other is fine, but I work at multiple stations in a given day or at computers they do not allow remote log in. So I will be using normal keyboards then go back to using a non standard layout.
i wonder if the true fox comes with the fox keycap :d
They do. Or rather they were in the actual drops so no reason to think different for these.
. One thing that i was wondering ..where do i find the fox logo i saw in a picture
cant find it anywhere and since i now bought one i kinda want that logo as my desktop image :d cheesy i know but hey..
No idea. Not sure they released that graphic into the wild.
If yours comes with that little card, you could probably scan it and have edit it to be background-worthy! I agree it is a cool little graphic
if you do get it please do that for me , would be much apr. :d
I live in sweden will it take much longer for me to get it than you living in US?
Probably yeah, I live like one state away from their warehouse so once it ships I'll probably have it within 2 days (fingers crossed). I can scan it for you, but I'm not really that great at photo editing lol.
Wow.. why dont you just go there and pick it up ? :d
well i dont even have a scanner so :/
Haha if I didn't work so much I would! But yeah if you don't have a scanner I can totally scan it for you :)
Maybe send a message to matt3o directly through his site?
thank you i will try that!
