[GB] HolyOOPS Aluminum RGB Keyset (invoicing)
« on: Thu, 15 October 2015, 14:37:12 »
I got the idea of aluminum RGB keyset about 2 years ago but things didn't work out back then due to high costs on production and the lack of confidence on selling such high priced keycaps.

I've been working with HolyOOPS for about over a year now and the idea of making aluminum RGB keyset started coming back to me when I knew they can manage to maintain the costs on producing such keycaps at a relatively low level. Not to mention the reputation of high quality products they're known for. So I talked to them about three months ago and asked they to make some samples for me which turned out pretty satisfying. After several modifications on the original samples during the past months, now we're finally ready to push it to the market.

Specs:
Cherry profile
1.5mm thickness
Top printed and blank versions will be available.
1.25 set includes: 2x 1.25 Control, 2x 1.25 Alt, 1x 2.25 Shift, 1x 2.75 Shift, 2x 1.25 Windows, 1x 1.25 Menu.
1.5 set includes: 2x 1.5 Control, 2x 1.5 Alt, 1x 2.25 Shift, 1x 2.75 Shift.


113848-0113850-1113852-2113854-3113856-4113858-5113860-6113862-7113864-8113866-9113868-10113870-11113872-12113874-13113876-14113878-15113880-16113882-17


Deadline: November 30th. I'll stop taking orders on November 30th and invoices will be sent out right after. The production lead time is about 20-30 days. Hopefully I can start shipping before Christmas.

Pricing:

GB Prices will be even lowered when we have certain amount of orders. e.g. 200 pcs.

1.25 keyset (9 keys included, retail price $89.50)
GB price $80
$75 @200pcs
$70 @300pcs.

1.5 keyset  (6 keys included, retail price $64.50)
GB price $55
$50 @200pcs


Shipping:

US – USPS First Class ($3)
US – USPS Priority ($6+)
International – USPS First Class ($12+) (shipping to Canada costs about $3 less)
International – USPS Priority ($35+)

There might be additional charges on shipping if your order contains more than 1 set.


How to order:

Paypal only. I'll be sending out invoices after the group buy ends. The invoices will include 4.4%+$0.30 Paypal fees.


ORDER HERE


Current order counts:

1.25 Keyset - 19
1.5 Keyset - 21

Nice GB Feng  :thumb:

Are you offering these to the chinese community as well or do we have to meet 300 orders on Geekhack alone to reach the best price tier?

This group buy is exclusive on GH. So we have to have enough orders on GH to reach lower price tiers.

Thanks for the fast reply.

Well, I guess it will be pretty hard to reach lower price tiers then.

I doubt many people will invest this much money into a mod set, when they can almost get a GMK set for the same price. But I don't wanna be negative - let's see how it goes  :thumb:

How long is the anodization supposed to hold up?
I would like very much a grey version, I imagine to use it with a blank, white set. So nice.... At least in the hot of the summer.
And... you know about that small 1.25 shift that iso uses.... How many orders could you need for that?

Since when, stating a fact is being negative?. Do not apologize for it.

Mechanical keyboard stuff is already overpriced, even in its more "standard" form, these caps are very nice, but of course they are in the upper side of the luxury stuff for keyboards. What you wrote is totally true, and you choose GMK as a reference, which is already top of the line, I really hope for those interested in these sets that they reach MoQ, but some of us simple cannot justify these prices.

these look quite pretty, and i'm thinking of ordering a printed set.

in case anyone else was looking for some pics to help visualize how these would look on a board, i found dangwang's pics of niqmods.  note that niqmods weren't alu.  they were painted abs caps and are probably quite a bit more glossy, but you can still sort of get an idea of how these alu mods will look. :)

feng, do you guys happen to have any overall board photos with these alu mods?

Nice work, but need to be sure about the profile.

Is it exactly "Cherry" or is it OEM? i.e. Ducky height or Filco height?

The anodization is supposed to hold up for at least 3-4 years, as long as it's not used right under the sunshine.
If this group buy goes well, we'll considering providing more options including 1.25 shift in the future.

Will take some overall board pictures real soon.

It's Cherry profile, which is the same profile as GMK's keycaps.

Ikr, I was hoping to hit the lowest price so I can jump in, since these beautiful caps are quite pricey.

I've always wondered about these aluminum keys, does the weight effect the switch at all? I know aluminum isn't exactly heavy, but it has to be heavier than plastics.

It does affect the switch a little bit, just not as obvious as zinc and titanium.

Aw such a shame there's no 1.25 LShift key available.

This has already spoiled the Vortex RGB Mods for me, don't forget the ISO crowd :(

1.5 blank and printed RGB set and 1.25 printed RGB set will be shipped out this week. Unfortunately they don't have anymore 1.25 blank set so I'll have to refund those who ordered this item.
