Does the black version come with the black PVD logo and weight or do those need to be ordered separately?

So I watched the stream and saw a lot of people saying they are buy two different colors. Are yall really out here getting two of these boards?

I got 2. x: I purchased gray and ewhite.

We are in the exact same boat. Added a gray to my e-white order after seeing the protos.  ;)

No, All colors come with SS by default and PVD is only available as an extra.

I just placed my order and I can't wait!

I had my friend photoshop the GMK Pulse keycaps onto an e-white one (that's what I ordered).

you should order both like everyone else lol.

Looks like it's going to be close to $1k per keyboard with the PVD plate upgrades (plus keycaps and other stuff).

Also, if there is anyone from the production side of things who knows a bit about materials engineering and is checking this thread, I'd like to echo the question from HorrorStorm and hmmmwhatsthis about the long-term durability of the thin PCB strips being used as a mounting method. I'd hate to be a proud owner of this board a few years from now when those strips finally snap from repeated stress, leaving me with a ~$500 paperweight.
Custom and proprietary parts is something I hate in this hobby. I don't get it why anyone would like to have 500$ case made completely unusable when 40$ PCB fails inside the keyboard.

Designers in this hobby should invest more in designing compatible parts.

i'm new to this hobby. currently using a GK64 board with a 2Kg alu body i got on aliexpress. this is exactly what prevents me from getting a fancy KB.

you should order both like everyone else lol.

Looks like it's going to be close to $1k per keyboard with the PVD plate upgrades (plus keycaps and other stuff).

it'll be a lot more than that. because so many proprietary parts are involved, you *should* order spares now. my shopping cart (pre tax and shipping) is $600 already for 1 board. and i'm not even adding the PVD weight that i really want.

There isn't an email, its a Google form on the product page from what I can see:
https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/7v-keyboard-polycarbonate-plate_2009/

The big bold text at the top of the product description is the link to the Google form where you enter your order number and colour choice.

At the very least you should purchase a spare PCB. Prepare for the worst down the line. Also helpful if you want to rotate switch configurations more easily. You may want to add a plate as well (you would use that spare PCB in combo with the plate. You could also just mount direct to PCB - no plate build, but your call)

Yes. Grey and black (+PVD blackout kit with logo and weight) for me. I would probably just get one if Dawn and Evolv ran unlimited GBs, but they're both doing raffles and since I can't guarantee getting any of them, I just ordered two V7s. If I get the Dawn and/or Evolv, I'll probably flip one of the 7Vs (unless I like it too much).

I took everyone's suggestions and I changed m order to:

1x e-white with aluminum plate
1x extra PCB plate
1x polycarbonate plate
1x PVB logo
1x PVB Weight

Unfortunately I can't seem to get all the SA Pulse key caps I need for this keyboard so I decided to join the black lotus group buy.

Here's a rendering of what it'll look like!

I am not in this particular GB, but i've been in multiple GB's via Novelkeys and have had no issues updating my address. They have a ticketing system and you can select 'change shipping address' and they'll update it for ya. If you're going to buy it, don't let a potential change of address impact your decision, this is a beautiful board.

Thank you for the info. I'm planning to get the black but will wait to see what Taeha got and how it looks and sounds (if it is not identical to gasp's build).

I feel so stuck. I love the Grey, White, and Blue. I can't choose which. First world problems. For keycaps I'm planning on getting the Deku keycap set. The Ishtar keycap set. The Kat Explosion keycap set. Along with the Sparta keycap set. When the GB come around.

My first journey in this hobby and I'm diving in HARD. I already following some keyboard IC I'm looking to get when they open up the GB.

It doesn't matter too much but if you have a choice then I'd get the 5 pin PCB mount as that will make mounting them straight easier. Especially if you're going to go plate-less.

I suspect the darker grey is the accurate one since the GMK Oblivion keys look pretty accurate.

Nathan probably has harsh/bright lights in his room for streaming.
