There's probably a couple floating around unbuilt.  I know my annoyance with the usb cable shaving/soldering and indecisiveness in choosing switches for the build has my J-pad sleeping in its box unsoldered.

Looking forward to hiney's potential aftermarket PCB.  I'm letting my gf use the JER-A06 to game with, so I figure it's only a matter of time until the board gets to drink a cup of coffee.

I'm about to buy a KBD 8x mk ii when the next GB comes up, but this is seriously competing for attention with it.

There's no competition. The J80 is a much superior board.

Hard to tell how will grey or gark grey will look and are the whites new e-whites or R1?

This is a gorgeous keyboard.

Can you tell me what shade is this keyboard from the first round:

(Attachment Link)

I think it is the non-dark gray?

i think it is NCR

If I understand correctly, the NCR is being developed for a future use, but not this round?  I wonder how the dark grey/white combo would look.

NCR was in R1, not this round. you can find what OP said "For Round 2 there're 3 colors to choose from: electrophoresis white, black (anodized), dark gray (anodized). Due to cost, electrophoresis white will be slightly more expensive. This group will no longer provide J PAD or provide J80 NCR color matching, because the author is trying to do some new process J80 NCR color matching which takes some time."

I have the silver one from the original Chinese GB, but still tempted to get the white one. This board is fantastic to type on!

@OP: Could you spare some time and update the progress on the Jer Mini GB? It's been white a while since the last update.

Very nice case design. Looks great in WKL with indicator lights.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

must be linear as this is plate-less board. Do not use tactile switch.

You can use tactile switches if you want. There is nothing wrong with it, just that people usually prefer tactiles with stiffer plates.

Hi MajorKoos,

I saw that you built a JER-A06 with Zilents. I am considering a similar build. Can you tell me, how did it work out?

It's Very subjective, but ...
It's my #2 favorite keyboard to type on.
#1 is a Norbaforce with BKE ultra lights & SP SA profile caps.
#3 is a Mira SE with an ALU plate and Healios.
#4 is a LZ MP with a PC half plate and Sakurios (the PC half plate feels similar to the JER-A06 and works well with the linear switches).

The caveat is that I used V1 Zilents.
I'm not a fan of V2 Zilents, so if I personally were to build another I'd choose Healios/Rosélios/Sakurios.
Or better yet, 62g V1 Zilents if I could find them.

Common concensus used to be the exact opposite, funnily enough. As if to say, it comes down to Preference™

I thought I had accounted for all of my keyboard purchases this year, but the J80 is making me rethink that...

It would probably be best to close this IC or show that the GB order period has already concluded.

Too bad the GB wasn't linked in the IC. I'm sure many people missed out, including myself.

Well that really sucks, I was looking forward to this. I really wish it was a rule on GH to a) comment, updates the first post and close the thread once the IC had finished, and then do the same with GB threads. Post-GB conversation (once the pay in round had finished) should be a new sub forum.

Nothing sucks now than opening a GB thread, seeing a really cool design then find out it closed 6 months ago
