[GB] H1 Switches - Sales Beginning Tomorrow
« on: Tue, 21 April 2020, 15:10:06 »
Latest Update:
Hey everyone, it's time to start getting excited!  :D

Update 6/26

Production of the second batch is now complete! HHHH expects to receive them sometime next week, and they should be shipped out to vendors very soon! We expect the sales to begin in mid-July. Thanks everyone for your patience!

Hi all, after a lengthy interest check, we've finally come to the point of group buy!

These will be sold as an instock item from Novelkeys, MyKeyboard, iLumKB, DailyClack, ApexKeyboards and letsgetit.io (HHHH's website).
ApexKeyboards sold their switches as a preorder, and those switches are en route to them now for fulfillment. They will also have some extra units that will be sold soon as a Canada only sale. Join their discord for updates on that: https://discord.gg/ZkTtnb3

Novelkeys, MyKeyboard, iLumKB and DailyClack will be opening up their websites tomorrow, April 22nd, for orders. These switches are sold as first come, first serve. Please keep an eye out for incoming communications from your regional vendor, which is where the official times for these sales will be announced.

Letsgetit.io (HHHH's store) will open sometime this weekend, and I will make a post here when that happens.

Take a look at the original interest check for more info.

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=104578.0

I've condensed the basic information about the switch below.

Top: Polycarbonate
Bottom: Polyamide (which is essentially nylon)
Stem: POM
Spring: 78g
Vendors: Novelkeys, MyKeyboard, iLumKB, DailyClack, letsgetit.io (HHHH's store for Korea and neighboring nations) and ApexKeyboards
Estimated price: About $6.00 (could be more in some regions with import tax etc)

Thanks, I was wondering if there was a change. Couldn't find anything on the IC thread other than a possibility of it being removed.

It took around 3 hours to sell out on Novelkeys. Pretty easy to scoop as long as you set an alarm.

Time was announced via update newsletter email early in the morning, just an hour and a half before the switch went on sale. The only time I'm awake at those hours is when I pulled an all-nighter.

Not that I'm complaining. I saved money and that's never bad. :-)

Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming support of these switches, we could not have imagined they would sell so fast.

Will these become an "in stock" item or is this a one shot?
It is likely that HHHH will produce more, but I can't and shouldn't speak on his behalf. It is a big possibility though  :D

Still waiting on dailyclack. Feelsbad :(
I'm awaiting news for DC right now, and I'll post here when times for their sale is posted. They haven't actually received their switches yet, so they might have their sale in a few more days.
