GG60-Pro is a minimalist mechanical keyboard kit, it is designed for the people who like portable and small keyboards, the wireless function quite fit for the people who like travel and work mobile, one charge can last over 2 months.

We hope more and more people can enjoy a premium custom mechanical keyboard. So we tried our best to make it an affordable custom keyboard kit, only $99 for the basic kit.


New Renders, Updated on July 19, 2019

Hi guys, we get the 3D print sample on July 5, we felt that both the right and left edge part could be narrower and it looked more concise and generous.

Any photos of the PCB?  Are the switches facing with the logo upside down or right side up?  Can the case accommodate other GH60 compatible PCBs?

Hi, thank you for your questions.

1. Sorry, so far no PCB photos, we just finished the PCB design, our partner is making the PCB sample for us, hopefully, we can get the PCB sample July 31, will keep you updated.
2. The switches facing the logo is upside down, which one do you prefer?
3. Honestly, we haven't tested it on other PCBs, but I think the case is hardly compatible with other 60% PCBs unless the PCBs have the same functions with GG60-Pro.

most people prefer the switches with the logo right-side up.  Upside down switches make contact with Cherry profile keycaps on a few rows.

I agree on the keycaps being right side up.
Aside from that, it looks like a nice premium entry board and I'm totally in for this.
This could be my travel board  :)

This fills what I consider a big gap in the market: portable, wireless & hotswap mechs. QMK support is the cherry on the top. Good job!

Having said that, 2 (hopefully constructive) criticisms:

- Why settle for Bluetooth 3 which is at least 2-3 generations old? Newer versions have less energy consumption and better/more stable links. Is it a price based decision?

- Less consequential, but at least one more color option would be appreciated. Itís a matter of personal taste, but my vote would go for silver or grey.

Cheers

Thank you for your comments! Constructive for sure!
We were told Bluetooth 3.0 is more stable, new version was reported lost connection sometimes, but we will test it on our own, will updated here.

Okay, will consider add one more color option if more people like silver or grey. We will discuss this with our cooperated factory.

Many thanks!

Really looking forward to this keyboard. Right now the only 60% hotswap bluetooth board I know of is the GK61S, and itís not that great. Having something with QMK would be a dream.

Any idea when the GB will begin?

We were planning to start the GB around Aug 20 to Sep 10. Will keep updated here when we have the final GB date.

Hi, GB time is still TBD, maybe the end of Aug 2019, we are hurrying up making the PCB, hopefully, we can release the PCB on Aug 24, then if everything goes smooth after testing, we will start the GB. Thank you for your patient! You will be kept updated as long as we got any progress.

Could you share me your keycaps? exciting to see:) (my email: chao@entergogo.com)

wow this looks too good to be true, I find the prices of kits to vary greatly, how do you guys get the price so low compared to other kits?

Thank you for your comments. Very good question!

Basically, we want to make the GG60-Pro a premium custom travel keyboard, of course, we can make it very expensive with complicated design and all trended functions. But we want to make it affordable to all mechanical keyboard enthusiasts. Here are examples of how we control the cost and make it affordable.

We make it a low profile case which is cheaper than a high profile case.
It has no back-lighting(RGB), as we thought the long battery charging circle is more important to a travel keyboard.

Another reason is we hope the GG60-Pro idea can come true, apparently, the low price is more competitive.
