So I'm pretty new to the mechanical keeb community, however I'm in love with this design. How much assembly knowledge will be needed to put it together?

soldering, screwdriver, and learning how to use QMK is probably all you need to know.

No real need to understand QMK as the PCB is supported by VIA, a user friendly UI to remap keys, change lighting and knob controls.

sounds pretty simple. I've never soldered anything keyboard related, but it cant imagine its extremely complicated. thanks!

definitely not. unless youre soldering SMD leds or trying to desolder a pro-micro, both of which you won't be doing for this keyboard.

I love it and probably going to be in for this one because I wanted a 75% for long time and satisfaction looks like a perfect candidate for my first 75% board. Despite the quality issues the prototype looks fantastic, the only thing that bothers me is function row. Those gaps without blockers kinda ruin the overall look.

The final version, as far as I understand it, will have blockers in the Fn row.

Gaps without blockers? The function keys are grouped into sets of 4, each with blockers between if that’s what you were referring to. The sample that he got from the factory that didn’t meet his standards has them as it’s close to the final design. The only ones without were the early prototypes

A few Satisfaction75 related updates:

  • The new prototype order is well underway, it should arrive in the next couple weeks
  • My fully built Satisfaction75 will be at the Boston Keyboard Meetup, next Saturday, 4/13. Come check it out if you're in the area! More details are on reddit.
  • Jae from TopClack will be doing a build stream with a Satisfaction75 prototype next weekend, Sunday April 14th at 3pm EST

Is it a safe assumption that the GB is more likely to run on May?

Given the sheer number of GMK sets this month, and for estimated prototyping times, May GB for Satisfaction75 is a safe bet at this point.

Happy to allow people's wallets to recover :)

Hey guys,

I just wanted to officially write down some information that has been made public:

The prototypes are almost done and should ship to me by next week, the factory has matched the desired color, but the finishes still need to be evaluated for quality.

There will be a build stream done of one of the prototypes.

The current plan is to offer more than 50 slots, the actual number has not been revealed.

There will be 4 color options, if these prototypes turn out well: Deep Ocean Blue, Pirate Black, Stormy Grey, and Cloud White. These were the top 4 choices in the IC! (Well, purple was before white, but I think white fits the theme better)

While there are plans for custom knobs, they aren't ready yet and likely won't be ready in time for the group buy. The knobs will not delay this group buy, so there will probably be a future group buy for the custom knobs.


I hope to be able to show everyone more once the prototypes arrive!

Mentioned planned colors here, hasn't confirmed 100% yet, likely just waiting on what the factory can do.

Hey guys, I’ll be building the E-White Satisfaction75 on stream later today!

Holy Pandas, Carbon Fibre plate, rotary encoders and a fancy knob ;)

Thanks again to Upas for sending me the board

Come hang out and see the board (plus a brutal60 build) at 8pm UK, 3pm east coast, noon west coast on Top Clack:

So, just asking because I'm new here what if I miss the group buys? Will there be a way for me to still get this keyboard?

Probably on r/mm after the GB at a bit of a markup.  Someone will ultimately sell theirs...

The knobs are sourced as premade knobs, I will be offering a few options.

The new prototype should arrive this week :) If it passes my QC, I'll start to release more information and Group buy details.

The weight design is REALLY cool, I promise!

Just getting into the hobby and this looks like it ticks every box I would want from a keyboard. Absolutely love the layout and spacing, and the additional features of the rotary encoder will push me into 100% joining the GB. +1 for the e-white

Also, apologies if this is a bad question but I'm unfamiliar with media controls on custom boards. Will media controls and other knob functionality work with any OS (Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, etc) ?

Is there any way to get a more low profile rotary encoder knob made? I love the look of the original rendered one with the soft curves, it fits the board really well. The tall brass one sticks out a bit too much for me. Probably too expensive, but one made of out resin/plastic would look really nice. Love the progress so far!

He has mentioned in the past that he may explore options for alternative knobs after the GB, but that he didn't want to hold up the GB for the knob.

How easy is it to utilize the rotary encoder?  For example, if I wanted it to be volume, how much work is that? On Windows.

It's no work at all.

5 encoder modes will be supported by default:
Volume
Scrolling
Media (Scrubbing and Play/Pause)
Brightness
Backlight

3 custom modes will be easily configurable in VIA.
