In-stock hotswap options
« on: Mon, 10 February 2020, 13:02:01 »
Hey guys, super beginner into the custom keyboard world and want to start my first build using a hotswap pcb. The only thing holding me back from pulling the trigger on a build is that it seems like almost all of the hotswap 60-65% options are almost always sold out whenever I look on kbdfans and similar sites. Does anybody have any recommendations on readily available hotswappable pcbs 60/65/TKL sizes? Looking for just the PCB or entire keyboard kit in the ~200 range. Thanks!

Would the HS60 be compatible with something like say a TOFU case?

Hey - Yea it is - just might need some insulation tape over the standoffs so stop shorting (it's like that on most metal cases)

Well, I got the GMMK TKL, which is a decent board imo. Got it primarily for the hot-swap switch feature, to try out new switches on.
Other than that you've got the massdrop ctrl, alt on amazon, the cheapo $60 kits, the tofu on kbdfans, lots of options.
Durgod Hades - Box Jade
Durgod Taurus (white) - MX White (Milk)
Drop ALT (high profile) - Halo Clear (soon to be Zealio)
