This entire thread was 'rolled back', so here it is again.

Name anything related to Mechanical Keyboards (boards, caps, frames, etc.) that you want (be specific) and can't currently get for any reason, and we'll do our best to get it.  

Manufacturer contact information is greatly appreciated and will greatly increase our ability to get what you're looking for.

non-Deck mx Clear keyboards for a realistic price (deck listed on your site for ~270 with "savings" of ~70 for a final price of 199 which is ~10 more than http://www.deckkeyboards.com).  Granted Deck is sold out... still...

Not to bash this thread, but the wrist rests are coming with the KMAC.  Both KMAC and wrist rests are on a boat being shipped here via sea right now :)

Try checking out on Deck's site. We're cheaper after shipping.

Also, our margin on these keyboards is a touch over zero in case you're wondering. that's why all the other 3rd parties like datacal list them much higher. They want to make a profit. We want a bigger catalog.

As soon as another co makes cherry clear boards, we'll pick em up :)

I think the blacks on the M1 are real Cherry switches, but the reds are fakes...the sheer weirdness of which only serves to make it more interesting to me.

There's an even cheaper, related keyboard, the Newmen GM-10 (http://www.newmen.com.cn/product/product.asp?id=639) (contact info (http://www.newmentech.com/contact.asp)), with house-made (and apparently linear[!]) blue switches. I think there's a ViewSonic-branded version out there, too, but so far, all the ads I've seen for that one have had their text embedded in pictures, making it inaccessible to translation...so I don't really know much about that one. And all of them share some, but not all, design elements with the Rapoo V7 (http://geekhack.org/showwiki.php?title=Island:20619), which uses fake yellow switches. Kind of makes me wonder how all the manufacturing/design connections work there...

Vortex aluminum TKL case. I read that you were trying to set up something with them. I don't want to purchase Vortex's whole keyboard, I don't have 250$ to spend right now. They must be able to make these for a pretty reasonable price, though. You're getting dye-subbed PBT caps, which go for around 80$ in a group buy (always thought this was kind of expensive, I might have mis-read something), 87 switches, which at their cheapest go for around 50-60$ new, along with the PCB and such, costing 10-20$ for them. Meaning that the board without the case should cost them around 140-160$, and the case alone would sell for 100$ or so, incredible because these kind of things normally sell for 180-200$. From what I've read and researched, there hasn't been any acutal aluminum cases for TKL keyboards, at least on english forums, that have been mass-produced in a group buy. Puting them in your online store would take it to the next level, I'm sure they would sell out before you can even restock if it worked out... So reserve one for me. ;)

Yeah, it's tough to do the math with some of Vortex's line and make sense of it.  The aluminum cases will be well over $100, but should still be less than the $180 - $200 you're seeing elsewhere.  LTD Pure's (w/ aluminum case) will be $199, so it's actually a really good value considering how much the cases will be by themselves.

Edit: I'm going to start a new thread about the Vortex Line and continue with the details in it.

Another idea for something that shouldn't be too much overhead:

WASD sells little plastic bags filled with an excellent lubricant for stabilizers.  He sells them with the "barebones" keyboards.  One little bag can lube a bunch of keyboards.  Perhaps this is something that can go in the accessories section?  The lube he uses is superior to what EK is using.

Great idea.  Checking on it now.

Of the places you can find them in the US online, I know we're the cheapest once shipping is factored in (including Deck's own site).  There is NO margin in Deck keyboards, and it's mostly their fault for listing on their own site for $70 less than 'MSRP'.  Apparently, even the manufacturer doesn't adhere to the 'Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price' (not even close).  Sorry, but unless we're trying to just get rid of them all at a loss, our prices won't be going down on them anytime soon.

It's a high quality keyboard with unique high-quality caps and some hard to find switches (Cherry Clears).  Decks should carry a premium price tag, but they still don't sell that well even at the barely-above-cost prices they're listed at currently. I'd say most of the blame falls on the form factor and the font-type.  That and your typical modern customer isn't willing to fork over $200+ on a keyboard unless the words 'Topre' or 'Aluminum' are involved in some way.

We were very close to getting some Green MX boards made, but it didn't work out.  I'll keep working on it though.  I think clear is out of production, but white is now available - or the exact opposite.  I tend to mix these two up.  My mind seems to lump clear and white into the same category.

We just got the Ducky TKL rests in BUT they'll still be a little big for a Vortex - much better than full size though.

utron is the only one I know of. I don't know of any ANSI ones at all. I'm no topre expect, though.

I mean EDIUS/GRASS VALLEY keyboard uses topre switches, but I don't think they sell their keyboards direct.

CCnG was actually the second run. The first was done by korean group and had icky legends (IMO, some people like them).

there are plenty of things out there you just have to network and camp the classifieds.

The legends with the very long arrow on the Enter key is a little strange to me.  I'll keep an eye out.  this is my second favorite look.  My first is Red Alert, which I acquired from three different people in classifieds at great expense.

I'm looking for the Leopold TKL White Keyboard [FC700R] with Cherry MX Blue switches. It seems like there aren't many websites that carry them/have them in stock. The ones that do have them in stock don't ship to the US. It'd be awesome if you guys could start carrying the Leopold keyboards.

Heh, well I don't have fluorescent lights, but no.  The brightness of the green is enhanced by the camera flash in that photo.  It's just a high-contrast color to go with the black case.  I would also like to see it with the bright orange, the white, and the cherry blossom, but I'm not about to pay for all that!

AFAIK, whites (aka "milks") are basically a different color of MX Green. Same actuation force. Although I don't know anyone who has done a side by side comparison yet, there is a lot of debate whether the stem of a mx white is different than that of a green.

I did a side-by-side comparison and posted pictures ages ago. Here's a link to the photos on my photobucket account. I knew buying a full set of whites and a full set of greens was a good idea. Whites feel and actuate almost exactly the same (maybe 5g different at MOST), but are much quieter. They look very similar.

I just bought one from them.  Their website currently says "lots in stock".  Took about three or four business days from the UK to California.

Using PayPal's exchange rate on Nov 24, the total for a £100.00 GBP purchase totaled $189.24 USD.  Not cheap,

FYI, Keyboardco stocks their Amazon store directly from China.  Thus the two inventories are separate, and Amazon sold out of popular items in a day or three after the last shipment arrived.

Keep an eye on the Classifieds.  I bought my first Filco MJ Tactile (Brown) that way, and was totally satisfied with the purchase.

Good luck!

Don't count on it anytime soon in the US (from 'another' e-tailer that is).

Keyboard Co controls US Filco inventory from their office in Europe and 'fills' orders via Amazon in the US. Inventory is shipped directly from Taiwan to Amazon. There is no real US distributor of Filco, but Filcos are distributed In the US by a 3rd party fulfillment proxy. Confused yet?

We've tried. It wasn't possible at the time, but I'm optimistic common / business sense will eventually prevail at Diatec. It's just a matter of when.

Re: Grey Ducky

I'd love to get some in.  I'll check.

Also,

Now that Matias is developing the Quiet Tactile and Clicky switches can you communicate to Ducky that it would be nice to have a 9087 level board with these switches?  Currently there are no high quality tenkeyless Alps keyboards - especially with PBT - on the market.  These new switches also take LED's on every switch unlike the ones Ducky uses.

If that is not possible would how about 1087XM / 1008XM "barebones" kits - basically what they sell now except no switches are included - these can be sourced from Matias or older boards.

I don't know what Ducky's current stance is on Alps - but they've already got most of the tooling there - it would be a shame to discontinue it with the new Matias switches.

Agreed on all points.

I'm pretty sure Ducky quit developing the ALPS boards completely. I haven't tried to order any recently because we still have dozens in stock that we got in about a year ago (they don't sell well - hence the discontinuation by Ducky).  No one really 'trusts' ALPS switches - customers want Cherry (and Topre if they can afford it).  Hopefully Matias will be the exception but it will likely take time.

I'll run the idea by Ducky and see what they think.

Barbones kits also sound cool, but it's a slim chance.  I've run the idea by them before and it wasn't well received.

We're always trying to negotiate to get what few MX Green, Grey, White, Clear, etc. keyboards exist.  Typically, the 10 - 20 that we are able to get are the ONLY inventory a given manufacturer has.

Re: Hard to look through 100 keyboards

I'm working on developing a ton of new features for the site - one of which will address this (part of why I haven't been on GH in forever - also Facebook seems to be the 'goto' update venue lately - I feel like a traitor, sorry)

We simply lack the manpower required to do everything we want to do - e.g. further develop site features, add content, add keyboards, add accessories, etc. etc.

This being said, I would like to reach out to the Geekhack community for help.  I'm going to start a new thread and see if anyone's interested.

I'd like to see double shot key sets that I can order on the spot, rather than spending many months dealing with group buys.  SP sells black/white sets these days, but a few color choices would be swell.

I've been harassing them for a while, and still zero response.  More than likely a language issue or limited supply.

As far as White LED Vortex - they haven't shown any Pure / Poker stock lately.  I think Chinese New Year slowed everything down quite a bit.  It does look like just about every brand we carry is bringing something new for Q2, so we should have a lot more to offer then.

I will look into these Phantom PCBs as I saw them mentioned elsewhere as well.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but only CM can ship mx green boards. Thus you may see Clear and White in North America, but not green. but hey, wouldn't be the first time I was happily mistaken.

If you are interested in importing something very special and impossible to find anywhere (except Australia - very expensive shipping) - I'd suggest contacting Leopold (Korea.)

Over a year ago they released the FC700R - a successor to the FC200R.  While EliteKeyboards owns the distribution rights for Leopold products perhaps Leopold has gotten tired of EK not selling this new board and losing market share to competitors.  They might make an exception that will allow you to only carry the FC700R;  Perhaps, allowing you to carry it as long as EK doesn't put in an order.

In particular I would like a FC700R w/ Black switches, White or Gray case, and Blank keycaps.

EliteKeyboards: if you are reading this - it's nothing personal.  Some of us just want to buy this keyboard - that's it.  There is an old saying: Crap or get off the pot.

Keyword 'Allegedly'. I've heard nothing about this.  Would be great if Mr Sklavos posted his sources.

I can also assure you that Cherry would most certainly not 'come after' MechanicalKeyboards.com for selling Ducky's with Green MX switches.  There is absolutely zero legal basis for this.  The only reason you don't see more Green MX boards from Ducky (and us) is because supply is low and the switches are very expensive.

Another huge reason this is far-fetched: Cherry is selling their switches to Costar - not CoolerMaster. Costar can assure exclusivity to CM - instead of other brands they manufacture (e.g. Filco) - all they want, but they have no control over Ducky's ODMs (only Cherry does).  There are too many parties involved to limit distribution geographically - unless you have some very serious organization / collaboration among all parties -- HAHAHA (sorry...was that out loud?)

Smells like "journalistic" hyperbole to me.

No worries.  I've learned every thread gets derailed at some point.  The good thing about this one is that it usually finds a way to get back on track.

I would be interested read more about this either way if you have the links.  I'm not saying it's not possible to at least a small extent, but to orchestrate such an agreement with global enforcement would be difficult indeed, and the inter-party agreements between supplier, manufacturers, and name brands (not to mention distributors) sounds next to impossible.

A good example of something similar and much less complicated that could not be pulled off: Logitech's first Mechanical G710+.  Distribution was supposed to be limited to 2 - 3 big box e-tailers (and is still 'exclusive' till today - why we don't have it - we buy legitimately only), yet there were 20+ 3rd party sellers on Amazon the day of release.  Looks like Amazon is already selling way below what my cost would have been anyway, so I'm not so disappointed anymore - lol.

The 2nd article states "Cooler Master has an exclusive contract to manufacture devices based on the green CHERRY Switch", so they very well could have something negotiated.  Still, CM doesn't actually manufacture anything, and Costar seemed happy to make Green MX boards for anyone with $$$ at Computex.  Also, Ducky obviously got their hands on at least 10,000 Green MX switches, so I wonder what / who exactly is 'exclusive' with what / who / where.  Very muddled.  It's good to know we can count on these CES reports for details!

"Cooler Master may not have a booth at CES 2013", but I "was awed by the layout of their showcase".

Either way, I'm going to keep trying to get more Green MX (as per your requests!) from every vendor I can until someone tells me otherwise.  We do sell / distribute for CM, so I'm sure they'll let me know if they need to. ;)

Shaker,

I thought you might find this post by the CM rep here interesting with regards to MX Greens:

Hi there,

We have discussed with Cherry on putting more emphasis on Green, and due to their limited production, we will most likely be the exclusive distributor in the US. There are obviously some vendors who still have access to limited quantities but not to the scale we are aiming to bring. Also, our established channels in the US give us added exposure. 

An example of our efforts to educate the general public on Green switches:
http://techreport.com/review/24461/a-first-look-at-cherry-mx-green-key-switches

We are extremely focused on building out the mechanical keyboard community with education. ...[shortened]

Yeah, that makes total sense.

It's the 'Buy every last Green switch in existence' form of 'exclusive'.  There aren't any contracts in place.  The legal fees involved in creating such a complex contract given the number of parties involved would cost five times more than the switches themselves, so it would be impractical to begin with.

This is sort of what I figured when I read the first claim.

Using this definition,  Logitech had an 'exclusive' with Brown switches for a month and half last year (still feeling this one by the way...).  When are more Brown MX Blue LED Shines coming in ?!?!?

I'm also surprised to see the lack of light bleed.  Although, I actually don't mind bleed that much (not sure why).

As esoo pointed out, it could just be on the lowest setting.  Either way I'm really excited about these. 

My only real critique would be a more toned down pink (less 'hot') on the Pink and White Shines.  Basically like the Vortex's without the paint scuffs lol

A bit pricey if you're planning on buying in bulk, but they have them.

Any chance you'll offer quantity discounts? $1.75 per switch is a bit steep.  :eek: Or, am I missing something there too. LOL!

As soon as we can get any real quantity on the switches, we will absolutely be offering qty discounts.  Right now, we're actually having to shut down some of the $1.75 / switch listings b/c the switches are worth more to us in terms of repair materials.  Supply is just so short.  We have to beg suppliers for 10 or 20 for RMAs. If we could only buy stock in Cherry.... :D

Also, I think WASD may have some switches available.

Still no word.  Also, if they're under a pound (I'm not sure on if they're 15oz packed or just over 16oz), it's only $5 to ship.  Not sure if $14 is easier to swallow ;)

All Ducky Shines that we don't currently have in stock are completely out with Ducky.  We have been given no run date on when more might be made.  I know it they do it won't be for months. :(  There could be a nice shiny light at the end of this otherwise depressing tunnel, so don't get too down.

I have no idea why the Brown Rapid has been OOS for a while.  I'm checking on that now.

OK, what about orings?

I think WASD is too ex and have heard of orings going for a fraction of the price at industrial supply places if you know how to order. But the Amazon listings just disorient me - so many things at low prices but I don't know which o-rings are the right ones.

I'm sure most of us have multiple keyboards and can easily take 200-500 in one bag. I certainly could. Prefer blue or red rings since these are harder to find

Just want to ask if you wouldn't mind extrapolating on the bolded sentence: is it a hint at something?  I know the PBT full-sized Duckies are coming, and they will (all?) have some purple LEDs, but 1) full size, and 2) not fully backlit!  I'm dreaming of a purple TKL Shine with Browns =/.

Yeah, it should be changed to Clears, because Ducky states they are Clear on their Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ducky-Keyboard/117547488320354
(find the post from February 8 down their page)

To be precise, in the Taiwanese version, the literal translation is "After sublimation upcoming Ducky keyboard Cherry axis will depend various different versions, including a black shaft, tea-axis, green axis, red axis, green axis, gray axis (a type silent), white shaft (two-stage silent), a total of seven kinds of versions, the most complete!"  (using Google Translate)

And the English version states:

" Ducky Dye-Sublimated PBT Keyboard with Cherry Black, Brown, Blue, Red, Green, Grey(Linear), White(Clear) switches."

If you wanted to team up for an order, maybe we could see if somebody in Oz (rowdy, maybe?) would forward some for us?  Not sure what the exchange rate and shipping costs would be, but I would gladly pay upwards of $65-70 USD (shipped) for one, $60 each for two.  I have no experience requesting something like that, though.

Not a faux pas.  It looks like we may get some in from Ducky though!  It will probably be a month out, but I managed to talk my way into some. :)

Another request: recently released Ducky thick PBT keysets.  I know they are possible to get separately, as Ducky Nordic said a few blank sets might be coming in, according to their most recent posts on DT (though I'm not interested in blank).  White/beige PBT set would be so nice for my second keyboard!

Don't thank me too early.  Ducky has been highly unresponsive to the follow up emails I've been sending about these cap sets.  "I will send you stock tomorrow" has turned into a 3 week period of silence...

2x ErgoDox PCB?
ErgoDox key set?
If you were to offer diy kits like edox and gh60 (both are open source, you can have pcbs run) that would be amazing.

Yeah, I found them unusually high as well.  I think in addition to the back lighting, it's a quantity issue.  They don't make many so the incremental cost per unit is higher (similar to Limited Editions often costing more than their features would normally dictate).

OK, this is just an off-the-wall request, but...

I just came across an HHKB keyboard stand (http://item.rakuten.co.jp/pfudirect/10000039/) on their web site. I think this could be used for all compact keyboards. It's $40, but it is made of steel.

Greetings,

A suggestion, there is not much white backlight keyboard available, yet it seems like rainbow keycaps only work with white backlight. Would it be appropriate to add more white backlight keyboards to the inventory? I know the ducky year of the snake is coming in, but it's quite a price tag not everyone who bought the rainbow keycap can justify. I know the nighthawk x9 is white backlight. at some  website for reviewing tech stuff people have been doing bunch of group buys for 20% off 150 MSRP, PLUS I just missed their memorial and July 4th sale for 20% off too on their site, which also includes the one and only DIY LED for their nighthawks and durandals (unless you DIY...which I don't), so I am never getting them again since I missed these and don't want to wait up and althought they are identical to the qpad k95 it's not like qpad keyboards are known to be good anyways. obviously the quality is not on par, so I would rather just get my pink ducky with white LED(amazingly they have been around for months on mk.com and still available...what's up with people's taste o.o)

But if there are more choices that woudl be great, especially TKL keyboards with cherry red and white backlight. because I bought both TKL and full rainbow keycaps from you guys.

I honestly have no idea how and where people have used those keycool keycaps. I don't think keycool keyboards are on par with ducky at all so I am not interested in them, but I am assuming keycool rainbow keycaps should fit other keyboards? At least the regular keys fit..
]I really wish there is not so much unexpected factor..sigh. I have a bunch of keyboards and none of them can use the rainbow keycapsss

http://matias.ca/miniquietpro/pc/

I WANT THIS SO BAD!!! THEY EASILY OWNS THE FULL SIZE COUNTERPART:

http://www.matias.ca/quietpro/pc/

quoting the only difference in their description besides tab key on numpad:

"Compact for comfort & travel.
There are several advantages that come with a compact keyboard...

More free space on your desk.
Using your mouse is more comfortable — because you don't have to move your hand so far.
Easy to pack for trips.
If you loathe your laptop's built-in keyboard, the Mini Quiet Pro is narrow enough to fit in your laptop bag."



NOW, i can get the full size if I don't mind the size, which I don't for everything like mousepad and keyboards IF they are not pricier. they are 125 bucks as an addon on my soon to be tigerimport big order . their msrp on the website is 150 bucks  + 10 shipping. the mini's msrp is 130 bucks, but it's free shipping ATM:


"US layout — Pre-order for delivery in July & get FREE shipping
    (March production fully pre-sold)"

as TKL keyboards are so popular with people,. ,I see no reason not to stock these. But Matias is running on short of stock themselves, so I don't see mk.com having them earlier. Either way, if you do, I'd love to see the price somewhere 110, or I'd just not bother with it and go ahead and get the full size...but if I cannot get a quote for that pricing for the mini quite pro for PC, i'd just get my quite pro soon.

Cheers

Is there any word on when the Ducky Zero DK2108 with MX Browns will be in stock? http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=262&r=974

Thanks for your help!

edit: Ducky's page for the DK2108 comes up as a 404, however here is the DK2108L page (http://www.duckychannel.com.tw/en/ZERO_DK2108L.html). what's the difference between the two models?

Yeah, that makes total sense.

It's the 'Buy every last Green switch in existence' form of 'exclusive'.  There aren't any contracts in place.  The legal fees involved in creating such a complex contract given the number of parties involved would cost five times more than the switches themselves, so it would be impractical to begin with.

This is sort of what I figured when I read the first claim.

Using this definition,  Logitech had an 'exclusive' with Brown switches for a month and half last year (still feeling this one by the way...).  When are more Brown MX Blue LED Shines coming in ?!?!?


Just ran across this post on Cherry's Facebook and it reminded me of this.

[attach=1]

Did CM ever claim this directly, or was it just 'reported' by some random YouTubers / Bloggers?  Not cool if the former.

I believe it comes from this thread:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1348258/mx-cherry-green

The quote is taken from Dustin Skavakos:

"It's an amusing moment when a vendor catches you off guard with a product you think you already know about, but that's exactly what happened with CoolerMaster's new Cherry MX Green based keyboards. I thought the rep was talking about the lighting, but the switches themselves are actually a somewhat rarefied Green model different from the existing ones, and CoolerMaster has exclusive distribution rights in the States."

I've not seen CM reps claim this directly.  They said the following here:

http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=39814.msg788542#msg788542
"We are always looking at offering new switch types, but the only problem is our distributors already dislike us for so many SKU offerings :) We have to keep it within reason, and if the market demand is there, we wouldn't be opposed to it.  Fow now, we'll be putting a lot of effort into green switches and educating them to the masses."

Thanks for pointing that out, but I'm thinking that was just typical blogger/reporter/writer 'fluff', because clearly they don't have exclusive distribution rights either.

If CM wanted to do something really different they should go with those transparent switch tops or even make the switch tops match the plate color etc.

Working on this now.  It's on the works.  It's usually a week between each Vortex email, so no telling when I'll have anything concrete on this.

So someone please reply to my inquiry about why I was shipped a brown keycool 87 instead of the promised red  please. Whatever the reason I just want to get the partial refund Caleb promised to me. I don't care what mistake was made it exhaust me to go back and forth the contradicting explanations doing me no good. Still I would prefer a Red shipped to me and then a label provided to ship back this brown one. I don't like browns for gaming, and i mainly game than type.

According to ShakeR you shouldn't expect any special treatment because you post on the internet.

I'll pm you.

Perhaps they are all covered up with the Shine 3's coming in.

1 business day is the absolute longest you should have to wait between responses to your emails.  We are closed Saturday and Sunday, so if you email us at 6pm on Friday, please consider this when your response comes in Monday.

Shipping 300 Shine 3s in 2 days could perhaps delay responses by a few hours, but not by days.  This is not how we conduct business.  Start emailing me (joel@mechanicalkeyboards.com) if you are having problems getting PROMPT, DETAILED responses from our support staff. They all report to me.

Also to clarify on SpamRay's comment: If you have exhausted our standard channels of customer support (email, contact form, phone) and haven't received a reasonably timely, helpful response; feel free to make us - and the general public - aware of the issue through whatever venue you choose. I would do the same. Forums, however, are typically the slowest, least checked item for myself and the rest of our team, so posting here usually has little effect on the service you receive.

Call them.  Josh took care of my mis-shipment on the spot.  They did send me a $150 keyboard in place of the $50 one I ordered though  ^-^

They advanced shipped the correct one and emailed me a shipping label to send the wrong one back.

I don't have the time to read through the whole thread, so hopefully this hasn't been brought up before.

I would LOVE to see somebody stock some acrylic TKL cases. They can't be that difficult to get produced. Sell a couple "standard" cases with black top and bottom plate, with clear body plates, and then have a few color options for top and bottom plates to purchase separately? I imagine it'd be feasible to keep cost relatively low on those.

I'm pretty sure other colors are not manufactured regularly, but perhaps by special commission from whoever makes the things. Something like matching RGB modifiers at least would be cool. But a whole range of colors would be even better!

An exceedingly long shot, but I'm also looking for a 104-key Realforce board with 30g (across the board) switches. These seem much sought-after (to judge by GH), but are virtually impossible to find in ANSI layout in the US—though there has definitely has been at least one production run of them in the past few years.

It seems to be sort of like Amazon or even eBay: each seller has ratings you can look at and decide if you trust them, and on top of that there's some Aliexpress protection.

I propose transparent acrylic wrist rests for TKL and perhaps full-sized keyboards.  Something like what Ducky Nordic has been demonstrating.  Not too wide, but comfortably wide, with a curvature or some slanting along the front.  I believe there's merit for an easily-to-clean wrist rest that goes with any keyboard in terms of color and style.  I like my leather Ducky wrist rest, but that "leather" shows wear and dust/dirt quite easily, while being difficult to clean.

(http://www.ducky-nordic.com/ftk/dnwrf1.jpg)

I'd make it taller: it needs to be the same height as an average FilcoDucky keyboard front case height and with some slant at the front if possible, a bit of a trapezoidal wedge along the top.  Doesn't need to have any logos etched onto it or be as wide.

Basically something like this, but made of acrylic (though wood would be cool too, just not as universally matching)

I'm also interested in that yellow edition. Very tempted to go through with that NCIX pre-order. Has there been any news when that is supposed to be available?

Yes, we'll have the Yellow on Yellow Ducky Shine 3s  -- Likely well before NCIX so pre-order from them at your own risk ;)

Any plans on getting them in other switch varieties besides the common four? And different color LEDs and/or different colored key caps?

I noticed NCIX is offering a "MX Milk" version.

I propose transparent acrylic wrist rests for TKL and perhaps full-sized keyboards.  Something like what Ducky Nordic has been demonstrating.  Not too wide, but comfortably wide, with a curvature or some slanting along the front.  I believe there's merit for an easily-to-clean wrist rest that goes with any keyboard in terms of color and style.  I like my leather Ducky wrist rest, but that "leather" shows wear and dust/dirt quite easily, while being difficult to clean.

Show Image
(http://www.ducky-nordic.com/ftk/dnwrf1.jpg)


I'd make it taller: it needs to be the same height as an average FilcoDucky keyboard front case height and with some slant at the front if possible, a bit of a trapezoidal wedge along the top.  Doesn't need to have any logos etched onto it or be as wide.

Basically something like this, but made of acrylic (though wood would be cool too, just not as universally matching)

Open switch steel plate
PCB

Plastic / Aluminum case [gut out a QFR/filco]
stabilizer/insert/wire [wasd]
lubes /springs  [originative]

I have an idea for stabilizers that I think would be nice.

Cherry and Costar stabilizers without wires

Wires for both in all sizes up to and including 10u.

Basically it would be nice to be able to just add how many switches worth of stabs you want and then have separate listings for just wires.

Another one that might be nice would be an option for keyboards that have standard cap sizes with no caps.  I know a lot of people here have multiple sets of caps that aren't being used and this idea would possibly save some people a touch of cash.  Also more options for boards with MX clears would always be nice.

I saw these show up recently...like...today. But they are just doubleshot PBT 104 key sets made by vortex...currently 'out of stock', hoping that just means being received and put in the system.
Haha, I just added these a few hours ago. You don't even give us the chance to get them in!
We're expecting to receive them early next week along with some Race IIs.

Excellent!  That price though  :eek:  A lot higher than previous Vortex doubleshots and dye subs.
Unfortunately, whenever Vortex increases our price, we must increase your price. Also keep in mind our prices include domestic shipping.

If the previous doubleshot PBT sets were like $33-ish at group buy price before shipping, it's amazing that these are twice the price.  Domestic shipping is $5.25 in a small priority mail box, so still maybe $65-66 per set before fees and shipping.

$33?! Man, WE should have gotten in on the group buy! :eek:
I guess Vortex is needing to pay some bills.

Yeah, feng sell those others for ~$45 plus shipping I think on his ebay store now.

But these caps have a different (much better if you ask me) font so I'm guessing new tooling. And they use more color, so I guess that costs a little more.

They are now $69 shipped.
Vortex continues to raise our prices on products. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do about that.
Hopefully it's just a matter of their production costs increasing.

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=27108&cPath=1498
We are getting them in. I don't yet have an ETA, but we placed an order for them last month and had to remind Ducky about our order. I'm sure they'll be in by the end of the month.  :thumb:

I think I'm in love.

I notice the Matias switches in boxes of 110 are out-of-stock.  Are these due back imminently?  It's not cost-effective to get to 110 switches by buying the 90 and bags of 5 you have in stock.

Anything with MX clears. Had to pick up a TKL CODE from WASD with them for my wife, and I'd like one of my own (but don't give a **** about backlighting). And some full size Filco cases. Am I the only one who uses a numpad or what?

No... I MUST have a numpad. My other MUST is a calculator key.
We're getting more 60% cases in this month, then TKLs. I'll ask about fullsize.

As for clear MX boards... I wish we had some. Shoot, I'd probably be typing on one now!

On Ducky's FB page, they show a set of yellow PBT dye-sub keycaps.  Will you contact Ducky and see they have other colors available to sell and have them on your site?
Yes, we will be receiving the PBT yellow dye-subs. I do not have a date at the moment though.
When I asked about them a few months back, it was only going to be yellow. We will have to wait and see if they will release additional colors.

Thanks for replying, I see you have clear switches in stock which is cool, but I'm not comfortable enough to do a full swap on my Majestouch 2 Ninja (plate mount). Would you consider adding switch replacement to your list of services? $20-25 would be awesome and I'd be happy to ship my Filco to you and buy a set of clears (once I test them out on the wife's CODE keyboard).

Just ordered your last green 60% Tex case. I need it because the stock Poker II case is too angled and my wrists are hurting from typing on it. The case will allow me to get the height down and the angle flat, which I think will help my wrists a great deal.

I am absolutely in love with the feel of the stock caps on my Poker II. I ordered some low profile DSA's but even though they were PBT, they were too thin so they just felt horrible to type on compared to the stock Poker II caps.

Could you please make some nice low profile, short and super thick PBT caps? I think I'd prefer clear caps, but I'd seriously buy whatever was available if the caps were short, thick and low profile.

Thanks for keeping mechanicalkeyboards.com so great.

Qtan's Vendio site has other low profile 60 percent cases.

But, I don't know what the quality differences are.

I believe because the 'free shipping' is built into the price. I suggest shooting them an email inquiry seeing if they can do some combining to save on those.

Leopolds are nice, certainly. We don't currently have any plans to carry due to their exclusivity with another company. Sorry :(, but hey, we got Ducky's exclusively...that should count for something...especially with what's coming down the pike (mini, legend, Shine 4, etc.)

Perhaps you can make a case with Leopold Korea that EK isn't selling the FC750R - they've chosen the KUL brand instead.  On quite a few Leopold products I see out of stock but no note on when restock will occur.  Not sure if the recent Novatouch ticked them off and they are adios on anything labeled Leopold.

That being said, I've been extremely happy with both of my Topre TypeHeaven's - would love to buy a MK.COM branded limited edition 55g version if you were to carry it.   EK has no plans on importing the 104U 55g unfortunately...

I would be very interested in purchasing an aluminum TKL case (maybe the Vortex ones? Although I am rather apprehensive about them because I heard there are issues with their fit).

I have been looking high and low and short of buying from:

1) gonskeyboardworks.com (which isn't good if you don't want the open switch look or a full aluminum case)
2) classifieds (not reliable for obvious reasons)

there is nowhere to buy any type of custom aluminum TKL board. The only group buy I can think of that is currently open is maybe Sprit's, but that aluminum case is just a tray for a TKL board, not so much a real "case" per se.


tl;dr:
[/size]Please stock aluminum cases. (If possible, popular custom Korean ones such as KMAC2 - these are not being sold anywhere else at all so almost all sales of this in the US and countries outside of Korea in general would have to be through mk.com if stocked).

Thanks  ;D

It is actually still legal to import ivory into the US.  It is TONS of red tape but it can be done.  What it boils down to is there are areas in Africa where elephants are groosly overpopulated, so their government will allow hunters to take limited numbers of them with the meat going to local villages and the hunter being able to keep the tusks with all the proper paperwork to bring to the states.

Will the V60 MTS's be the same price as the regular V60's?

Also wondering if you guys are really getting these new aluminum TEX TKL cases, and if so can you say about how much they will cost?

The standard ducky profile is OEM. DCS is Signature Plastic's profile that mimics the Cherry profile but isn't exactly Cherry profile.

 You would think the prices would be cheaper with the 'mx compatible' switches but I guess not.

We wish they would be cheaper too, but so far my Kailh Switched Sample that Keycool sent has not disappointed me in the least. Any time something new comes out, naysayers abound. I have faith in this new switch unlike most...

You can say that. Keycool has such a large catalog that in order to try to carry everything they have available for those interested here in the states, we purchased them here and there. Add to that the vehement angst against the Kailh MX-Compatible switch...but mostly it was due to the overall performance of the last keycool run...we like keycool as a brand and we trust that they know what they are doing with these switches and I will tell you why:

They have been in business a long time.

They could sell only keyboards with Cherry MX and not be able to sell them due to the Chinese Cherry Switch shortage, or...

They can sell them using a switch type that is readily available and continue to sell keyboards.

Simply put, use Cherry Switches = No keyboard sales

Use Kailh Switches = Sell as many as they can...sounds like a good business plan to me, despite the naysayers.

And believe me, Cherry MX switches have their problems too...

I sincerely hope the V60 MTS gets hit hard with never ending demand.  The market place really needs more high quality Alps keyboards; I hope the competition is watching.

I think it is awesome that KBP has acquired and will be using the Matias Alps Switch. Very cool indeed!  :thumb:

Dark grey PBT dye subs for the FC660C. Basically the same caps that ship with new ones to replace the pad printed ones that came with the old ones.

Just the keycap, not the board.

V60 arrival date keeps slipping.  How confident are you on the latest estimate? (August 6th as earliest)

Waited around for one of these for quite a while now, starting to wonder if I wouldn't be better served buying a Poker II and taking the effort to swap the switches with Greens or Whites (or maybe tactile grey?)  Just want a 60% keyboard with keys that push back!

The delay is due to quality checks. I'd prefer them test the boards before shipment rather than assuming they all work 100%... which has them leaving Aug 4. Hopefully you feel the same way.
If they leave Aug 4, they should be here next week. But I've extended the ETA into the following week just in case something else arises (Customs, FedEx, etc) and it gets pushes back a day or two.

The keyboards should be handed to FedEx Monday, Aug 4th with us receiving them later next week. Should something go wrong or be delayed, please give us until the 13th.

How will these work if the LED's are under the switch as opposed to on top? Thinking of using them on the KBP V60 which has the LED's on the bottom of the switch :/

Ya, I would expect so.  I have tested Ducky Shine keycaps on a keyboard with LEDs on the front of the switch.  In that case the stem is translucent as well, so it did work reasonably well.  Since the stem on these ones are black, I really don't know how much light you will be able to get to the POM piece...

and the Filco High Profile 104 US (http://www.diatec.co.jp/shop/det.php?prod_c=1476) keycap set.

So, this might seem kind of an odd request, but if I'm seeing it right, you only carry the clear in PCB mount. Which means that if you want PCB mount something else, an overachieving hobbyist would have to buy x-number of desired keyswitches, and x-number of clear PCB-mount, and swap sliders and potentially springs, at roughly double the cost.

How complicated would it be to get a bunch of PCB-mount lower housings, empty? Or maybe broaden your PCB mount selection a bit ... Two projects coming up that I'm thinking of is a 10-key in reds, and a 60% in either blue or green switches.

That's unfortunate to hear. Is there a reason why? The PCB design is freely available on komar's blog (http://blog.komar.be/projects/gh60-programmable-keyboard/) so I was under the impression that it would be fairly painless to have it produced by a PCB manufacturer.

The final design hasn't been made available online yet, that's an older revision with a couple of problems on it. Basically the GB has stalled and komar isn't releasing the final revision online until the GB has been completed.

It's been about a year since I last heard it mentioned, but I just wanted to see how the GH60 plans are coming along. I'd really love to be able to purchase a PCB and a plate since I wasn't able to get in on the group buy.
Better off getting a GON NerD60, the GH60 won't likely be available any time soon.

That's unfortunate to hear. Is there a reason why? The PCB design is freely available on komar's blog (http://blog.komar.be/projects/gh60-programmable-keyboard/) so I was under the impression that it would be fairly painless to have it produced by a PCB manufacturer.

Gotcha, thanks. Maybe it's time for a [CTRLALT 60 version of the NerD60 PCB then. Unfortunately it looks like most of the 60% plate group buys are either over or stalled right now and I can't seem to find a relatively inexpensive option.

IMSTO or GON will be your best bet for  plates.

Not quite yet. Once it gets a little closer to the ETA we will make it available for preorder. We'd prefer not to hold your money for 2 months if it does indeed take until mid-Oct to arrive.

"Somewhat soon" can be quite deceiving.

Next month, Ducky will begin producing keycaps. At this time, I'm unsure what will be available.

2-6 weeks for production, it could easily be Jan-Feb before we receive more.

So I guess compared to receiving them in 2017, Jan/Feb is somewhat soon.

Eh, it's to be expected. It's a brand new keyboard from a relatively new company. They want to iron out the small details/defects prior to shipping them to distributors. They're confident though that there should be no more delays in production.

This entire thread was 'rolled back', so here it is again.

Name anything related to Mechanical Keyboards (boards, caps, frames, etc.) that you want (be specific) and can't currently get for any reason, and we'll do our best to get it. 

Manufacturer contact information is greatly appreciated and will greatly increase our ability to get what you're looking for.

Cooler Master is the Manufacturer.
I talked to CM support but I think they got confused and thought I meant the main keyboard pcb instead of just this small part, because they wouldn't help me at all and lost a customer for life.
The part is a mini-usb pcb for a quick fire ultimate, seen in the image below: "CMS-001 USB"

Yeah, I was going to get just the clicky version at first, but then decided to get the quiet click version also for work.

Did you notice any stabilizer rattle (like on the spacebar)?

I thought about doing that, but I'm going to be ordering about 200 switches for 3 60% boards. That's a lot of cutting. :) If a restock is right around the corner I don't mind waiting a little bit.

The current problem is that apparently Topre and PFU do not make PBT spacebars for their keyboards (Realforce 87u/104u and HHKB Pro 2, respectively). All the other keycaps on these boards are made of PBT, but the spacebars are ABS. I am hoping that someone might be persuaded to make PBT spacebars for these keyboards.

So, if I wanted to bend the rules a bit, could it be done?

Namely, I destroyed a side of my ergodox, but the right hand works for sure. So I should only need one board ... and want to buy a bunch of switches so was thinking of combining the order ... for the, uh, shipping savings.

Anyway, is there a means to add / pay for one board? Also it might be a week before I order because of budgeting concerns but it would be useful to know if there's a process for such things.

We are only receiving a limited supply of White MX keyboards. Dissenting opinions abound in the world of Cherry MX switches, and our goal is to carry as many flavors of them as possible to suit the growing population of tastes out there. White Cherry MX is no exception. We are sorry that it may not be preferred by all, but there are those who specifically desire this switch type. We are increasingly apologetic when it comes to Clear MX switches as these are highly sought after across the board. At the end of the day, we carry what we can as Ducky produces what they can with the switch types they have available to send us here outside the Asian market. Not the answer many would like to hear, but it is all that we have regarding our ability to carry various switch types. Thank you. Super guy.  :thumb:

I guess I'll ask here, but any chance you get the two-tone Vortex PBT keycaps back in stock?

It looks like the green, pink, and orange are in stock, but the blue and red have been OOS for a while.

Any idea if you will get any of the blue and red sets? TY

If they were ordered days apart, there's a high probability they were already shipped... separately. However, I can't be certain without knowing your name, order number, etc. Feel free to PM or email me.

You tease.
Is there anything that differentiates it from a standard KUL-ES 87?  Or have they just applied some new moniker to their keyboards?

Edit: Now that I've seen the larger picture, looks like new case+caps color, is it exclusive to blues and browns at the moment?

Correct, just different colors.

As of right now, all I know for sure is gray keycaps. The pictures kind of make the case appear to be dark gray, but it could be black. I won't know for sure until they arrive (12/23 as of now). Only blue/brown ATM with others probably to follow.

I actually like that board. It wouldn't be my next buy, but it's pretty slick with the LED "halo" glow. Also, with the LEDs off, the caps look blank.

Only problem is that the glow around the caps is really inconsistent, and actually looks pretty shoddy in person IMO. The board itself is nice though.

I would pay handsomely for a 4.5 unit spacebar. Lots of 60% keyboards such as the Pure Pro, Filco Minila etc use them but it's impossible to find keycaps for them anywhere. PBT would be best but even ABS would be amazing. I want to build a custom board with this layout: http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/layouts/0266e105db6c8fadcfb6a181413618fc but there is nowhere that sells 4.5 unit spacebars. Perhaps vortex could be persuaded to do a group buy of them?

2 unit left shifts would be nice too, could maybe include them in the group buy.

Solid idea. It needs help with MOQ, and I have no doubt you'll sell out of them on MK. So many Cherry white/beige sets out there that need extra keys.

Can we also get a good cherry switch GB going soon, with most common, and some uncommon? This would be great to go along with the stabs and stuff.

Since we are already a Cherry Corporation business partner, we try our best stock all they currently produce, so if something is out of stock on our website, it will be restocked eventually. We have no plans to do GB's for Cherry MX switches. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Im sure I read it somewhere but I cant recall what the verdict was; do you need any sort of plate spacers to be able to use a custom plate with those Tex cases? I'm really debating picking one up for either my Filco or Phantom but both have stainless plates which lack the curled lip on the top and bottom found on the OEM Filco plate.

Some of us have quotes from GMK for sets and know what they really cost and I do realize you guys have to make profit and all to justify the investment.

You could sell doubleshot 104 key ANSI sets all day for $100 and make bank. I've considered doing this myself since I have some extra money but don't want to take on the risk.

The costs only really start going up when you add keys on like most sets here do which is why I asked this question.

It was a question based on the recent numbers I had for laser printing which is only 11 euros cheaper to do per set than Double Shots.

If we were to start carrying GMK doubleshots as a regular thing, how many would actually buy them day in and day out? What would you think would be a good neutral color scheme that would sell well and still not step on any GB toes...?

Ha, you beat me to it.  I was going to suggest this too for people who missed out on Ivan's group buy.  I'm sure it would garner a lot of interest since it's such an attractive set and compliments most keyboards very well.  It would be great to have such a reliable vendor such as yourself carrying this, instead of gambling your money away and ordering from Originative.

We had a PO for them, but Vortex advised that all SKUs would be changed to Poker 3s. Our rep said that if we still wanted Poker 2s, we'd have to place a special order for them and they'd start that production after the Poker 3s are caught up.

+1 for Tex aluminum case. Always looking for nice aluminum cases and it would be sweet to see more higher-quality keyboard cases made of metal. I am glad to hear that you guys decided to continue selling them. On your website it's hard to tell if an item is no longer going to be in stock or it is, just waiting for ETA.

I'm also looking for a Shine 3 TKL Brown switch w/ Blue leds. But nobody has it for sale. :( I'm willing to pay a premium just to have it back in the store.

All of them are 'compatible,' however they will not feature the same function-printing as the keys serve to do different things (i.e. Fn + Frow keys have functions in the Shine 3 and Shine 4 that will not be the same as the Legend)

Please compare the two photos below to see the legend changes in key functions between the Ducky Legend and Shine 3:

Are you going to carry Tai Hao PBT doubleshots, and is there an ETA?
Yes. Just placed order Friday. Should be a few weeks.

Do you happen to know if they are planning on making a silver one?
I sure hope so.

Any noticeable differences between the linked caps and these new ones that you'll be getting in?
The ones you linked were for the Shine 2. The new keycaps will be the same color, just for a Shine 3 and Shine 4.

Can you tell me which of these Shine caps would be most compatible for a Ducky Legend?

Ahh interesting. I didn't realize they switched the multimedia keys above the number pad like that. I don't actually really use those 4 multimedia keys above the numberpad so that shouldn't be an issue. I'm curious to see how one of those Shine grey sets look on the Ducky Legend with silver case. I suppose I'll see which of them match up best for the F row once I get my Legend in :) Thanks for the reply!

I will ask in this thread instead of starting a new one - any idea if/when you'll be restocking the aluminum TKL cases in dark gray or black?  The dark gray will likely be my last purchase for my Phantom board.

Should have looked around a little bit... https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=64583.0 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=64583.0)

Also, someone above me mentioned a uTKL plate.  This might be an awesome idea to go along with the Phantom PCBs that you carry.  I can imagine a lot of people being interested in buying the two together, as well as the Teensy!  It could be a one stop shop!  Just a thought!

Ergo clears came from swapping a blue/brown/red spring into a clear. The 62g is the Korean weighting that resembles those springs, only they are measured at fully bottomed out. Whereas Cherry measures to actuation.

I've seen people use anything from 55-68g springs in ergo clears. I think its mainly preference. The most common, I believe, are 62g though.

Not much for us to comment on regarding the suggestions mentioned. We are not the manufacturer (Cherry) and unfortunately we have little say so in what Cherry Corp does with their switches. If Cherry makes it, we do our best to carry it when available.

Even assuming MK.com has the capital to invest in 750,000 custom switches, I doubt they'd be willing to take that risk.  You want them to pour maybe half a million dollars into a switch order for a sub-niche product?  That's ballsy.

Cherry's offer is intended for manufacturers who would most likely use their switches in full keyboards for retail sale.  Since they'd be buying switches for their product anyway, they have an option for further customization at the right volume.

Are all the Leopold boards you are sourcing from China or South Korea?

Why are you importing more Tex?  I got the impression those didn't sell very well?

Good question...will get back to you about this soon...

Tex didn't sell very well because we were out of stock. While they were in stock, sold like hot cakes...

Guys, Ducky has these new Citi Themed spacebars that they're going to sell soon (I'm sure you've seen them).  I'd like the pack with the NYC skyline.  I know that you're an authorized retailer of their products, will you be stocking these and if so, can I place a preorder for a set?

Was hoping you would get some in silver or light grey, but if not I will probably get the dark grey.

I'm speaking of the TKL cases by the way.

Of course...and of course...

I know you probably wont be able to tell until you get them in, but I'm hoping that the KBParadise V80 MTS will fit in these cases also.

Mass drop just had some keycool gradient and rainbow caps with side print option I'm not sure if the drop is still active or not but its worth a shot.

Will you be allowing pre-orders for the TEX TKL cases?

I know I've said this a few times, but I'm hoping that you get some light grey, or silver versions this time.

These colors sound good. My current build is holding out for one of these TEX cases. I'm debating between current black and grey colors but if silver were offered that would be my choice.

Any chance you guys are looking at the Royal Kludge brand? Here is a link. (http://www.rkgaming.com/)

In particular I'm interested in the standard RK930-87 w/ Electro-Cap switches and POM keycaps in 45g and 55g.

They also carry this version in backlit RGB, and in 104 size formats.

Business arguments for:
- The EC switches shouldn't have any chattering issues associated with something like Cherry.
- The switches are compatible with Cherry MX keycaps.
- The EC switches themselves are sourced from Noppoo and have been in production for two years now so all the early bugs should be worked out.
- No Mini/Micro USB port issues because the cable is hardwired.
- Unlike Topre, these use Costar/Wire stabilizers so if the stabilizers squeak it should be easily remedied by the end-user with lube.
- Closest competitor is the Coolermaster Novatouch which lacks 55g option, LED's, numberpad, and programmable RGB backlighting.
- Even the standard 930-87 version has higher quality thick POM vs. the NovaTouch's thin ABS.
- Price is around 50% of the NovaTouch so you can stock twice as many!  ;D
- Topre no longer sells full size 104 keyboards with 55g weighting, but RK does!

MK.com,

In regards to the following item:

Cherry MX Keycap Set - Shine 3 White ABS (Ducky)
SKU: S9C4-L108-USALW

Will these have the same shine-through effect as the stock keycaps, as in will the legends be lit up by the LED?

Thanks for the reply

Hey there, I couldn't help but notice that you recently got a couple Leopold FC660M models in stock:

Does this mean you are starting to distribute Leopold keyboards in general? Any chance of you getting the FC750R (in navy or black w/ MX blues) anytime soon? (And I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in the FC660C as well.)
