White Case Quickfire TK Availability?
« on: Sun, 02 February 2014, 02:30:01 »
So I finally stumbled upon the white body Quickfire TKs, and I'm love. The hybrid keypad/arrowpad layout, the white case, the white backplate, the white LEDs, everything. But it looks like the only version in stock anywhere anymore is the brown switch version, and I don't like browns. Are the red switch (what I want) or the blue switch gone for good? Was this a special edition, never to be seen again?  :'(



I was thinking of getting a regular TK red and painting the case myself, but it looks like that comes with red LEDs, so that's a no go. And the white LED/backplate model has browns.

Update: One other thing. Are there any other boards with this kind of layout (combined tenkey/arrows)? Is there even a name for it?

If you're still looking for this board, I may have a solution for you.

I was looking for this particular keyboard about 6 months back and had absolutely no luck. However, I was visiting China at the time and noticed they had stock there.

If you really want one with red switches, you can find a Chinese Taobao proxy (qtan or zchuer) and have them ship this to you:

Best of luck!

That's a GREAT idea Merloobi! I've sent him an email to see what he can do.
