Finally arrived a few days back, I got the black case option with Gateron Clears. The keys are a pleasant surprise, very nice to type on. And of course, the space bar has an unorthodox spacing, but I have a set of Costar stabilizers on the way to replace the current one. Connection wise, no problems connecting to a Surface Pro 2. Overall a really sturdy keyboard, would recommend!
If you're curious, the keycaps I'm using are currently for sale on MD as well, under the 'Blank PBT Keycaps' drop.

Where did you get your Costar stabilizers from? I can't seem to find them available anywhere.

I got them from WASD Keyboards, in their Keyboard Parts section.

You'd need to purchase the stabilizer inserts, stabilizer spring and the plate mounted stabilizer clips.

thx! So the cherry mx stabilizer spring is the correct length? http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/keyboard-parts/cherry-mx-stabilizer-spring-for-spacebar.html Guess I'm a bit confused by the use of the 'cherry' in the name.

To quote WASD "They are Costar-style stabilizers. The term “Costar stabilizers” was made up by the community as they were the first company to not use the OEM Cherry stabilizers and there really isn’t an official name for them. Many companies use this style now. FWIW, the ones we have are from Costar."

Can you comment on the quality of the keycaps? They look really nice, and I can't see any imperfections in the picture.

They are amazing! They came in very clean and organized, I don't recall any loose shavings on my keys yeah.
And of course, the PBT goodness.
