PLU ML-87 POM



N-KRO via P/S 2 and 6-KRO via USB
Comes in Black, Blue or Brown Switches
POM(Delrin) keycaps
PLU-key for Media functions (similar to Steelseries-key)
Ugly as SIN branding...

Review:
http://article.pchome.net/content-1218318.html

It can be bought from PLU's taobao shop
Link : http://store.taobao.com/shop/view_shop-716fe148b760e8495865237c0c85df9f.htm

For $50 before agent fee/shipping is not too bad...

However it looks like you can simply pluck out the branding, so it isn't that bad. Translation of their sales spiel in progress...

They also have the full keyboards... http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=3365295055

DAAAMN.  Ok someone do a group buy of these in cherry blues and I'll be in for 1.

By the way, my favorite part is the windows key with a big slash through it.

87 with "tea axis" probably brown:

87 with "blue axis" looks like cherry blue:

Now that is what I call competitive pricing.
EUR 33 for a tenkeyless with MX switches?
I guess I might buy one.

Hate the logo, and I'm not a big fan of the case.

But at a price like that who am I to complain?

If anyone can find some direct contact information. Please inquire about a group order!

The site says they are backordered (at least the 87 version), and won't have stock till earlier next month. Not sure whether "next month" refers to Nov or Dec. o.O

That pricing is more what I would want from  China.

I keep seeing "Plucky" when I see  that name.  Like I "PLU Key" your "Ducky".



The 104 looks interesting, but it's more money-- near Rosewill costs-- although I am liking the 'Media shift' in lieu of the menu key nobody ever uses.  I wish it would go one step further to 'Macro Shift' (a few stock media keys plus programmable macros on the letters

I occasionally use the menu key, thank you very much :tongue: Pretty much only when my mouse is charging and I'm navigating via keyboard though.

I still don't think I can handle typing on something with a big swooshy Rosewill logo on it... there is no way I'm even touching a keyboard that says Poo on it.

I emailed Obook, got response, shipped to me in california with all taxes and fees, it is $92.75 USD via "EMS Shipping",  $82.70 via "airmail" (paid through paypal).

According to Obook it "will be stocked in mid november"

Pretty good price IMHO, beats the crap outta elitekeyboards prices.  Of course return policy / keyboard quality / NKRO / Chinese manual / No warrenty or support makes up for this difference.

Then again keycap quality may be better :)

Well, it sure looks like these keycaps will wear better than filcos.  My experience with the POM keycaps on the Ricercar SPOS is that they stay really new looking for a long time.

Saving 5% on commission should be like $2.50 off the total bill correct? since total price is $50 usd..

Anyhow I don't think I can justify this cause I already have a filco tenkeyless, and it would proabably take over 1 month to get here.. :(

The QC of the keycaps looks kinda bad to me...
Some keys look sunken it like unicomp black keycaps

But if u can get it @ USD$50 after shipping from a MO, it will be worth the price.

That is the point
but POM is hard to handle
even Cherry can't make POM keycaps as good as PBT
