And... it's the same price as the RF 87U (all 45s). No surprise there.

Yo Geekhack biatches, it's finally here  :o .

Can't believe my eyes that they've finally released it, although ONLY for US, Canada and Mexico deliveries.  Still have to wait for the rest of the world dispersion of these babies.

Nice to see a company holding to it's own words about supplying it's product for this year   :thumb: .

ordered. i tried applying the Survey10 coupon with no joy. I'll be contacting CM about this directly.

Expect a review immediately. In the name pf keyboard science I don't car one bit about the warranty: this thing is getting pit under a microscope, inside and out.

You'd be surprised. When the keyboard first came to light, I said that it'll probably cost as much as a Realforce or HHKB (for obvious and good reason), and many said otherwise, and that it will be in the $150 range, which I highly doubted. Oh well, at least it's here now. Looks great and I'm really tempted, but I'll wait until 55g.

What happened to the simultaneous world-wide release?

It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

I just used their messaging service from within their customer service site to inquire about the 10% coupon code Survey10.

I also mentioned something strange about my transaction: when I went to "apply" the coupon code, during my purchase last night, it didn't accept or reject it... instead, it just completed the transaction without the coupon code. I did this from my iPad mini though: I don't know if Safari is the culprit here or not.


Cheers,

K


PS: I placed the order last night (12Aug about 10:00 pm EST) and as of right now (13Aug 2:46 pm EST) cmstore usa is showing an order status of "awaiting fulfillment."

Hi everyone,

Just to clarify - this was a mistake on our e-commerce end and was not supposed to go live. There is no product currently available and we are truly sorry for this mistake. This was a simple 'fat finger' of prepping the product information and unfortunately it did not go as intended.

As our way of appreciating those that jumped at this offer:
For those that wish to keep their orders that are already placed, we will give them priority service, free shipping, and a free gift (CM Storm backpack) for the inconvenience.

If you wish to cancel your order, you will receive a full refund.

The choice is yours. We're sorry for the inconvenience but this was truly a mistake. While we understand that it does affect our customer, we understand the reason for this incident was not malicious in any way.

Interesting: I was wondering what happened to my order. I just checked it and when I click through the status it says, "Unfortunately this product is no longer for sale so it cannot be reordered." Now I know why. ^^^.

Glad I got my order in though: free shipping sounds cool. Not too sure about a "cloud of boobs" backpack though.  :p

Novatouch sure felt like 55g to me. I tried it side by side with a Hi Pro which was 45g and it was heavier.

Yeah, I just got a refund via PayPal notice.  Gave CM a call, and got dumped into voicemail.  Some people get compensated for the inconvenience and others just get kicked to the kerb?  Hmmm.

Cm do have pretty good customer relations.  We've had a couple of CM reps lurking around GH for a while - excellent community interaction!
