Just finished assembling my Aria WhiteFox - it arrived yesterday, and after testing to make sure that the stabilizers didn't stick, I put it together. Overall, I'm pretty impressed. It's a hefty keyboard and the PBT keycaps are nice. The LED illumination is a bit uneven on the keys when I turn it up, so I've been using the lowest setting (which looks nice). It's also convenient to have arrow keys when compared to the 60% board that I've been using.
I used some tactile clear Gaterons that I've had lying around waiting for a build - nice switches, although I'm not sure that I like them better than Matias Quiet Clicks or vintage Cream ALPS (still, a lot more tactile than browns).
The kit was very well put together - everything came in neat little boxes. The Infinity Ergodox (R2) just came as a bunch of plastic bags crammed into a cardboard box, which was functional if not as aesthetically pleasing. Either Matt30 or Input Club spent a lot of time designing the packaging.
Overall, I'm happy I got this one (although I have way too many keyboards).
where did you buy it? i couldn't find on the whtiefox website
You can only buy it here on Massdrop via a group buy (they make each batch custom to order). Massdrop has run 2 group buys (or "drops") - the last one was in mid-July (that's when I ordered mine).
It's likely that it will go on sale again once all of the keyboards from the last batch have been delivered. I don't think anyone knows exactly when that will be, though.
Last time i heard it is planned for 1Q 2017
Matt3o replied yesterday to question I asked him on his blog regarding when the next drop would be and he said they were working on some updates to the board for the next drop and he was hopeful that it would still occur in Q1 of 2017.
