Late 2019 maybe. It's going to be amazing, so it requires a lot of work.

Hmm...not sure if I should wait on the chance that the Fjell Pro will be released this year, or pull the trigger on the Classic.

Also, that new Wilba designed PCB up on the website looks nice.

It does look super nice! I didn't think I could be more excited for this round but here I am.

It looks like there will be a Wilba PCB available with the Fjell.  Seems like it will only be like 65 for the PCB. Could have probably just opted in for that vs the zeal60, even though it is a super nice PCB.

I can’t wait for more details on the Wilba PCB. Looks like it has relief cut outs for extra flex.

Yeah I could have, I've just heard such good things about the Zeal and the RGB is implemented so damn nicely.

Would love a Wilba designed PCB solely for the quality & aesthetics, but ultimately I'm going to have to opt for a DZ60 because I need a concrete layer of navigation keys. Really wish this layout would become more standardized, IMO it's the best 60% layout:

Still might pick up the Fjell one as a backup.

There's no color change when you click from dark to light in the colors on the website LeandreN. Same with magenta. Is the dark just a black? And what is the light?

Can you not do this with the wilba/zeal60 pcb?

As far as I know, the DZ60 is the only 60% PCB that supports this layout. I've never seen another 60% PCB that supports the standard 4x1U arrow cluster but then again, my research is relatively limited.

Some cards gets declined until they contacted their bank.

It's because of a large transaction outside the US, it seems. Fraud protection.

Ooh found this notification in my inbox today just as the keyboard I was test-driving was failing. Very intrigued!! Lots of questions:

- This would be my first build. Any thoughts on whether it's a good or bad idea to "learn" on the Fjell?

- Would I only need to get switches and caps in addition to the keyboard kit?

- Do you also have a real-world image of the Ultramarine Blue? Is it more turquoise or blue, like this Klippe? https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=92848.msg2621825#msg2621825

Those ultramarines have nothing to do with each other. It's just bad color naming from my side. It will be closer to the render.

You need switches, keycaps and stabilisers.

I think you can learn on a fjell its a tray mount, so pretty standard to build.

Good cheaper ones are GMK Screw In Stabilziers, the best are Zeal Stabilizers. Just google and you will find them.
