[GB] KBDFANS ODIN MECHANICAL KEYBOARD
« on: Wed, 18 August 2021, 03:16:44 »
KBDfans ODIN MECHANICAL KEYBOARD Kit
Group buy date: From Aug 15st to Sep 15th, 2021


ODIN Sound Test
Coming Soon




Introduction
Designed by KBDfans Wei, the inspiration of the design is from the Stora Hammars I image stone which considers being Odin's cult symbol.
    Speak of Odin, who associates with wisdom, healing, death, royalty, the gallows,  knowledge, war,
battle, victory, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet, and projects him as the husband of the goddess Frigg.
    From KBDfans's point of view, the Odin means everything we wanted in a set of a keyboard with 100% layout!.
    Are you getting sick of the tiny layouts? Let's meet the Odin!

Yeah this bums me out. The keyboard looks pretty good and KBDFans has a good history, but give me your money and I will tell you later when I will send you the stuff I paid for does send chills down my spine
A pessimist will tell you the cup is half empty. An optimist will tell you the cup is half full. An engineer will tell you it's exactly twice the size it needs to be.

Meh, I'd rather not have a date instead of some made up fairy tale date that a vendor has zero intentions of hitting anyways.

Dates in the MK scene are just a meme at this point. I can't think of a single thing in the last 2 years that has actually delivered in the ETA given by a vendor.

On top of that, I'm sure the ETA will change drastically depending on them selling 50 units compared to 1000 units.

I donít think an order of magnitude expected wait time is too much to ask ó are we on the order of months or years.

Iím not their target audience, but KBDFans is big enough where I would expect at least some attempt at predictability.

My experience with kbdfans GBs has been pretty good. Joined the D45 gb in March and it was delivered in early July. Was the same with the Epoch board, was about a 4 months wait period. There was no info from kbdfans in the interim about progress or delivery date - just shipping notification when it was ready to ship - which am fine with when it comes to a known retailer like kbdfans as I've been shopping from them since they first came on scene. GBs from forum posters I would be much more leery about.
