The legend spacing for each key is highly inconsistent. For example, the letter Q vs the letter U.

The U and the number 6 is about to fall off the edge of that keycap.

It really depends on the batch. Some people will receive their set with legends perfectly aligned (and centered) while others might have some issues.
That's up to the manufacturer who's doing the QC. And well you can't expect all-over dye-sub to be perfect.
Customers are free to contact the vendors if the issue is too blatant though.

That’s still our latest estimate. zF is supposed to have the sets to us by the end of the month. If that changes, we will make an update on the page.

Dear all,

I have not followed the GB very carefully, my bad, but I joined.

Can I ask why the pictures of the samples are currently not available?

I would like to re-see them because I have just seen a supposed real KAM Wraith picture and it looks very different (too much blue tone with a very "sad" rainbows) from renders and from the samples that I have seen some time ago and I am worried about the real look of this set.

Cheers

Hey, my Imgur account got banned.

You can still find those over the internet though:



Note that the temperature of the pic is definitely too warm.

Thank you very much for re-sharing these pictures, it is really appreciated. They look definitively different from the other pictures I saw.

set came in today. Looks great and excited to try them out as my first KAM set.

I would say it is not quite as blue as the renders or samples seem. But that could be my monitor or the light i am in.

They’re a *little* lighter than I was expecting. My homing bars are all haloed, which I’m not thrilled about, but other than that, really happy with the set.

Squee! I got my extras (I'm in UK) from NovelKeys! Very pleased!
I have an international set, minus the UK "2", "3" and "¬" keys (which I'm using), if anyone needs them.

My first ever keyboard is pictured below my current one:)

I almost got one those extas from novel keys, but they didn't have any of the space bar novelty sets available, and i just had to have that as part of the set, so I had to pass. I hope theres another round one day. I'd actually prefer a white version..

  I had a Timex-Sinclair 1500 with the rubber chicklets when I was a kid.  (still have it, but it hasn't been turned on since 1988)  I arrived at geekhack too late for this group buy, tho.

Oh, nice!
That's like a hybrid ZX-81/Spectrum, it seems! I sold all my Spectrum hardware a couple of years ago. I'd've kept hold of the Spectrum itself, but it was weird and glitchy and the keyboard wasn't working properly any more, so I eBayed it (all worth surprisingly much money!).

Candykeys said they'd make extras available after the main group buy ships, and I should subscribe to their mailing list to get notified.
It seems NovelKeys extras are sold out already (apart from international kit).

Ah, if anyone wants the international kit, I have all of it except 3 UK keys (2, 3, ¬), free to a good home (just pay postage), DM me or whatever.

It seems like Keyreative is ghosting everyone while they figure their new process out, so I’m not sure what info you’d like from biip. “I reached out to find out what was going on and they haven’t responded” would be what’s happening with others.

Hi all,

I saw some pictures of the very lucky customers that have already got their own sets: all the pictures look very different from the sample ones (much more bluish/greenish than the sample grey), I think that the differences cannot be explained only by means of different pictures lights.

Are there some problems during the production of actual sets?

Is there a shipping timeline for EU customers and/or a timeline for new updates?

Regards

My actual set isn’t nearly as saturated as the “actual sets” pic you posted.

https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/mnu4wj/new_caps_day_kam_wraith_on_cajal/

It is definitely bluer than the sample pic you posted, but I feel like what I got matched my expectations.

Your picture is "better" than others, but it seems still much more bluish than the sample pictures, thus, for me, it is still desirable to clarify if something happens during the production of actual sets. I hope that the GB runner and/or the producer can clarify soon the reason for such differences (and giving a shipping timeline for EU customers).

By the way, the picture I posted is not mine, it is only a side-by-side comparison of the pictures afore posted.

My best regards.

The final color is the same as the one approved during the sampling phase (You can find the colors samples pics above, but as mentioned the temperature is slightly too warm).
My desire was to offer a cold gray, as the renders showed.

I reached Zfrontier (who's acting as middle-man between the manufactory and me) and got some info:
All kits are ready to ship. Zfrontier will proceed to the shipping of all the packages as soon as possible.
Candykeys should have more news (than me) in the upcoming days.

Dear biip, I am very happy to hear that also EU customers will have soon our sets, good news finally. By the way, all the pictures I saw of US sets are far from your samples pictures and I have doubts that the differences are due to only warm lights. Let us see what will get.

Indeed, it's also due to white balance.
The pics (randomly found on Twitter) are definitely heterogeneous though.

Thank you again biip. I hope that the actual set is much more like the last 2 pictures that are much close to your sample (the grey-greenish seems to be closer to renders than bluish pictures).
