Re: [IC] NR65 - the first 65% by Fox Lab (logo removed)
« Reply #350 on: Wed, 28 August 2019, 11:44:15 »
I was planning on getting an e-yellow Polaris, but prefer 65% boards, so this may change my mind.

Personally, I like the final column, from top to bottom, to be Home, End, Page Up, Page Down, and the right arrow key.  So, apart from not liking the logo in the upper right, it also prevents me from having the layout I prefer.  Meaning that I would prefer an extra key as opposed to a logo I don't care for.

I don't expect things to be changed for my preferences, but you asked for opinions and responses, and this is just what I feel personally.

I don't mind the logo on the back, however.  And I'm interested in what other e-colors will be available.

Polaris is a great board. Kevin and Ai have good taste. I may get a Polaris as well.

TBH I didn't like the NR logo. Fox lab is not just me tho and my partner insisted on the logo. I'm glad he admits he's wrong now.

E-black, E-white, E-red will all be available like before. You already know how E-yellow looks. Here are two other colors I prototyped before.

I really like these colors, I hope the teal is available!

Thanks for taking the feedback in stride and offering a number of options. It looks like I'm in the minority here but I'll probably end up going with the Kanji with the winkey.

Also, are you still considering POM as a material option?

Personally; i'd go the opposite (if); Black case with white logo.

Ofc, if there are changes in terms of colour (e.G. Pink will be added ;) ) i will go with pink + black logo :D

I'm still super interested in learning more about the newer stuff I've never seen before in keyboards; G10 case and Pattern Welded steel weight, are you having protos made for these so we can sort of estimate what they would look like/sound/feel if they were to happen?

The factory told me that G10 is too difficult to work with with their machines. I insisted to order a prototype. Let's see how would it turns out.
I also ordered a pattern-welded steel weight. The patterns on the sample material are not very good. The supplier can offer more options only if we have a bulk purchase. The prototyping is more for verifying this option. I don't think many people will choose this weight but I really want to offer it at least once.

How does the titanium plate compare in firmness / sound to aluminum / brass? Also since you are considering a POM case, please consider POM plates as well - I really dig my singa with a POM plate.. unique sound and a soft flexy bottom out.

Titanium is well known for its great elasticity and toughness. Can't commit to the sound due to the subjectivity of it.
Polycarb plates will be available. POM plates are very similar to PC plate according to my experiences.

At the end of the day, the logo is just a logo. It may make mundane objects seem sophisticated and alluring, but it doesn't change what the keyboard is. I wouldn't even add a logo there if I knew it can cause so many conflicting viewpoints.


WK and WKL options for 3 different tops sound fantastic. I think these are great options, and you've gone above and beyond expectations. I see some people are (still) complaining about logo issues. Honestly I feel hypebeasts have taken over much of the hobby, and their lust for "aesthetics" is ruining the main purpose of ICs.

About color options - in the past you've offered MAO white. Is that possible here? Or is the process too difficult? I have it on my Leaf 80's plate, and I really love the matte white effect. I think it would be really great as an accent.

As for the board itself, I own a Leaf 80, and it's my favorite board. The brand may not be as hyped as other brands, but their build quality is just as good. I have no doubt in the quality of Fox Labs, and I'm very excited for this GB. I definitely want one aluminum with the gray/black(unless MAO white is available) and one polycarb. The price point is amazing, and Fox Labs has a history of solid manufacturing and delivery. I'd encourage anyone to buy into this.

Thanks. MAO white is not difficult to deal with. It's just a matter of interest. I count your comment as a vote.

Thin POM parts (e.g. top case) have serious warping issues. It's a matter of the material but many people will regard it as a quality issue. I prefer not to provide it this time.

If everything goes right, GB will start in this month. We're waiting for the prototypes, nothing else.
I won't the GB with just the renders and deal with uncertainties after I collected your money.
I wouldn't hesitate to start GB after I can make sure all the finishes, materials, and processing will work.
Right now we're trying to solve several G10 milling issues. We need to use the correct end mills and proper configurations (rpm, feed rate) for this material. Otherwise, there are flaking and other issues.

This :

logo is absolutely fine imo, I rather waiting for reply for the ISO plate support. Because PCB does support ISO but no plate? what plate should I use then or ISO only plateless?

Getting custom plates cut after the fact is not difficult at all, if the designer is willing to share plate files, or at least the stock dimensions.

I honestly have no clue where I can get custom plates done :P So I rather have it directly from the "vendor" / designer. do you have any suggestions?

There's a number of options available, depending on your budget and location in the world. Would advise creating another topic/post about this question, and fielding answers separately outside of this thread. Lasergist, Laserboost, Big Blue Saw, etc. I find that if enough people are interested in a custom plate, better to run a side group order to get quantities up for lower cost.
