[GB] Pearl 40% - LIVE until December 1st at www.pearlboards.com

Can't decide which of the 2 I should get: dark blue, cyan, black and grey. Which would best match keysets like Nautilus, Yuri and Laser? All look so good. And will the polycarbonate plates be bundled to save on shipping?

Cyan, imo, would look amazimg with all three of those sets. I went with silver, but may change to cyan. Still conflicted. Cyan looks sick, but silver with the rgb strip. Hmm.

I think dark blue might go better with Yuri and Nautilus.

Btw, is the rgb underglow pre-soldered?

I'm in the same boat, I'm tempted by a pearl just because it looks so nice, but 40% just doesn't seem like the right thing for me. I even think i could do a like 50% without a number row, but losing standard keys in the main layout would screw with me.

I'd buy the **** out of a 60% tho. The real question is... any plans for 65% :D.
Understood! And it all depends on how well Pearl does. If its received well, id love to make something truly unique in the 60+ range :]

I won't steer you the wrong way on colors, but yes, the poly diffuser is bundled!

Yes it is, you only need to program a key to toggle it for RGB to work.

I am still hesitating with getting this 40% pearl.. Iím quite afraid I will not like 40%, but I do love the look of this board. Maybe I will wait for 60% pearl (even more with all the nice 60% gb soon with ca66 and m0110!!)
Thank you fox, I'm glad you like the look :) A 40% board, especially a very unique one is gamble if you've never used one. I don't disagree with your hesitation, and while id love to get this out to as many people as I can, my first concern is that you know what you are getting yourself into.

Try a 40 out one day, get a cheap one off mech market and see if its for you! If you love the form factor, Im sure one will find its way to you.

And yea, so many cool 60%'s are available right now! Pretty cool that the market is growing outside of the normal ebay, kbdfans, and standard aluminum square cases. I'm still wanting a Noxary X60 myself, but ill make my dream 60 if Pearl runs well :]

Thanks for you answer Kooba!! Indeed I should try a 40% one day. Moving from full to 60% was really a revolution for me, I love 60 (or around 60%) layout, think they are super efficient for what I am doing (mainly code). I am quite afraid that the 40% push it a little too far, especially for code, which would make things less efficient.

And I totally agree with you Amnesia, the thing which bother me the most is loosing the classical layout on the other ray. a 60% without top raw (number) and a split space bar would do very nice. But with this layout I am quite not sure. Even more than this make the fitting of keyset complicated. I have a Budapest SA and Dasher SA on the end which need a keyboard, but I am afraid that they will not fit :( !

I remember feeling the same way! My first 60's were very hard to get used to, and then i moved down more and it was harder still. In my case, i don't use my 40's to program. They are more for leisurely use! I cant go below TKL for actual software development. I even use the PAUSE button sometimes to see what my terminal scripts are doing. But when I get home, if its bigger than 40% on my desk I don't like it :p

As for the keyset, any ANSI keyset will work. You can take the keys off your 60%'s and cover a Pearl perfectly. Budapest, Dasher, they both work fine. The layout Pearl uses was made specifically for allowing coverage from normal keysets :] The keyset compatibility on a 40% was actually my first checkmark when creating this project.

Being on mac, I enjoyed instantaneously the 60% layout more than tkl or full since I mever used the f keys or page up/down, pause and so on. So the pomer layout was perfect, with caps lock remap to layer acces, and arrow on wasd, I love it. So yeah, 40% could be more for leisure when you donít really need the full efficiency.

On the keyset side, I need to recheck then, I thought it was tricky with some key but if you say so, this get a problem off  :cool:

As it seems the PCB doesn't have a button or something else to reset the controller.
So will the PCB be bricked when flashed with misconfigured QMK and e.g. no configured RESET Key?

Wow you are all set! I've got another buddy who also has SA Godspeed ready for his Pearl, its exciting. What switches were you thinking of? Thanks for joining :thumb:

These pcb's can always be put into bootloader mode if you hold down a certain key while powering on the PCB. I wouldn't bank on it getting bricked, and jetpack should have more on that info in the near future :]

I like 1 personally.

Also i need suggestions on what color aluminum plate to get. I'm getting a purple pearl, but can't decide between a purple, cyan, or green ALU plate. Thoughts?
Getting brass plate as well.

I really enjoy the original design for the weight but I would probably lean more towards #2 if you did indeed change the font. I like either font though so it doesn't matter too much to me  :D

A green plate would look sick. Red looks pretty sweet too. Id say it all depends on what keyset will go on it. For my Purple Pearl, the red plate and SA Miami combo looks killer when the plate shines through!

Will in-switch LEDs and RGB leds work together without brightness issues? I'm asking cause I've just assembled UK78 and in-switch LEDs are so dim and setting RGB brightness to max just turns in-switch LEDs off. Ultimately, I guess, it killed the PCB on UK78, so it's bricked right now.

Dang, i can't believe that actually happened. I just tested out a board, full top leds and all the rgb on. Its not bad. If you put the RGB all the way up, id say the top leds shine maybe 6/10 on a brightness scale. Its a nice bright, nothing crazy. But putting the RGB down a bit only slightly dims it, while making the top leds substantially brighter. That seems like a good tradeoff point! I'll make a video of it sometime soon :]

Hopefully the numbers are pretty up-to-date and one of us got it. Best of luck to both of us I guess!

Some people have made multiple orders, some people have bought only stickers, plates and PCBS. You can just see what the current orders are at on the form and try to join in at that number. GL.

from a design perspective, IMO the number should go bottom right just cause it has the most negative space because of the angle of the font and the size of the first letters.

But I think these look good too.

Option to not have a number? :)
Ahhh probably not xD

thanks for clearing that up! I had another questions, how would I be able to get additional parts such as a 2nd PCB since the mechkeys page just covers the kit and not extra parts with PayPal? Is the only option for extra parts to go through your shopify store with a credit card? cheers
Cheers my friend! You can always pm me anything that you need and i can invoice you with an alternate PayPal account ;]

I need a 60% of this in my life, two even. Please consider doing a 60% version!
I definitely will try and work on one if Pearl 40% runs well :D

Went with Cyan and brass. I was about to order an additional plate and PCB, but with the $60+ shipping, I decided to drop those.

Can't wait! :)

I am in the same boat. This pearl design look just amazing, but I cannot resolve to use 40%. But if this go to 60%, I will be the first one to buy!!!

Woot! Hey, if you order them, I will cancel the extra shipping and bundle them with your current order! I'll pm you about it

Hey buddy, I don't have a black pearl, only gray. I can link some of those pics if you would like and try to photoshop it darker?!

I know it's too early to say, but would this be the only round for the 40%?  Or is round 2 in the future?

I am in this GB, but just wondering if this will be a limited run.

Like others have said, other form factor such as 60%, 65% would be awesome!   :thumb:

Am also buying a pearl 40, but I agree, having a matching pearl 60 would be pretty sweet   :p

Hey! Thanks for joining in :] And you know, more rounds would be dictated by you guys and by the quality of this GB. If everything works out but everyone hates Pearl, then no more R2. If it becomes a very popular board with necessary changes and the market isn't saturated by 40%'s, then I can see a R2 happening with more accurate prices and timelines. I'm not in this to make a profit, and I just want to be able to fulfill! Which is why more rounds would for certain be dictated by you guys, and are not planned as of right now!

You are all being too nice! I appreciate the interest in a Pearl 60/65% even when there are so many cool boards already out there in those form factors. Bare with me, lets see how well I can handle this GB, and if things don't go to **** we can all work on the next board together! :thumb:

I would pass up any larger keyboard pairing for this and vote to have a "side car" 13 key numpad
