I know, right?   I had no idea the green or blue would look so amazing.

looks like general factory dirt to me

I hope so.  The board looks awesome.  I forgot how nice it is.

Did you get dark blue or blue?

I got blue  and I'm concerned mine might be more cyan than blue

I think that there are a lot of people do not know, or understand WHAT REALLY HAPPEN to this GroupBuy:
Quote
jhoang have to stay in hospital, and can not answer everybody here about his GroupBuy, can not pay any money until now. I just help everybody to sort your order out, then we keep waiting for jhoang

I already make a sheet that update what I'm doing now. You can check it here; https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14lYDVr2Y6TSb7o_OJVbKxBEAn1Ct7PbE8NZRSLaID6Y/


Q&A.

Q: why I'm here?
A: I take control of logistic of this GroupBuy. Can not sit on all that keyboards for a long long time, so I sort it, then take some picture to you.

Q: what i do?
A: I sort all order in GroupBuy base on the sheet that jhoang public to all of us. I never receive any money from jhoang for this GB, both sorting fee (i'm happy to do it for free) and assembly fee.

Q: what i need?
A: I want to show to all of you that GB is still running, with tons of trouble, for a long time. jhoang do not cheat on you, but he have problems now.

Q: when your order will be ship?
A: i can not answer this question. Shipping fee is high, and I can not cover. Some people willing to pay money to me to ship their order. I do not know about the others.

Q: when your keyboard be assemby?
A: jhoang do not give any information about who want to assem, and who already paid for that service. I still can assem your keyboard, but you have to pay me for that.

I paid (E11) but paid late and your list is showing that I never did.  I can still get my money back via PayPal protection.  I can then forward that entire sum to you Kuang... Is that the best way of going about this?


EDIT: also sent you an email with the details.

i'm contact with DHL, to find best price for all of us. Will let you know first.

Sorry but I think you have to wait.

I check all the email and updating it to my sheet, will reply to you soon.

I see someone already cancel their keyboard, may I sell it to take money for shipping?

I am confused by the above statements.  Are these all directed at me?  Let's take this conversation over to email, but I am just making sure that you're not selling the keyboard that I already PAID FOR.  Thanks!

I have some concerns about the pcb.  I heard there have been issues reported with the ones sent out to vietnamese orders.  Can you confirm if they are ok or are we going to be facing issues with them?

nothing specifically, but I heard it from two different people.  Only reason I am bringing it up, if it was just from one person I wouldn't have bothered.

no PCB problem on my end so far. only the backlight/RGB setting gets reset each time you unplug keyboard or sleep/shut down the pc. also when you plug it into a linux machine it will always have Num Lock on by default, whereas Windows machines remember that you turned it off

That is actually a problem.

Kuang, do you have any way of dealing with whoever at Exclusive did the firmware for this board?

well i probably overstated it. what i meant is that only the lights are always on when the board returns from an inactive state. brightness setting and RGB color don't get reset to default like my previous post might have implied

saved:

- side RGB color
- switch LED mode (standard, breathing, glow when keypresses are detected)
- switch LED brightness level

not saved:

- LED/RGB status if off (always on when initialized)
- Num Lock status on a Linux machine (always on when initialized))

It seems like even the "logistics" guy (kuwang) has dropped the ball on us. I've emailed him with my address, weeks ago - still no reply, nor do I see any changes to the spreadsheet. I'm guessing it's the same for many of you as well.

Extremely concerning. I chose not to file a dispute with Paypal, because I wanted to put my faith into this GB at least once. It seems like I was wrong about that.

Yeah, my hope is he is trying to do engraving still.  I know he has my board in his possession and I've agreed to pay shipping again directly to him, so that is the only possible hold up at this point.

He told me he had engraved mine already. Dunno if that's true or not, never saw a pic of it engraved. No replies to me by e-mail since 10/17.

With the boards already made, I'm confident that we will eventually see them. Unless he decides to try and resell them in Vietnam. However, I'm unsure on how long it will take for us to receive the boards. It could be much longer than we expect. Kinda ironic how most of us joined this GB since it had a crazy 1 month turn around time...

i know for sure that you guys will receive your boards sooner or later.. when i came to pick up my board from kuang i also learned that he works in logistics, hence his willingness to take over this groupbuy. however, his work also requires him to travel for days at a time (he showed me his Asus phone and says the reason he has it is so he can carry 3 or 4 extra batteries with him to wilderness areas where he might not have access to sockets for charging, let alone stable internet). i'm sure that is the reason he previously commented "i cannot commit full time to this GB at the moment"

Thats understandable, considering that lots of us have different circumstances. Just seeing that pic of my board getting prepped for shipping got me antsy,

Thanks for clarifying

That's still not an excuse to not post an update here, though. If he does indeed carry extra batteries, he should have access to the internet at SOME point during his travels - at least 2 minutes of his time is sufficient to post a quick update here. Especially when a lot of people's money is at stake.
