Can't wait to build this one.  I am generally not a fan of the 60%, but this looks amazing.

Got a standard ansi black with stainless trim, stainless steel plate, white ansi pcb with an extra aluminum plate and hotswap PCB.  I really, really liked all the polycarb colors and it was causing OCD.  Maybe if there is a next time. 

I look forward to a day hopefully between January through May.

Rip forgot to specify if ANSI or ISO

The soldered (default) PCB should support it, no?

I hope its ANSI lol

I just checked the product page, it supports both layouts.

Fairly sure its either a ISO or ANSI PCB. Only noticed this when I was going to buy an extra PCB to store

PCB supports either, you are looking at/thinking about the plate, which will only support one or the other

Koobaczech, any way I can use Paypal? I've tried my own card + my brothers now and both just fails. Tried using Apple Pay and Google Pay, same thing. There's for sure money on the card and I called the bank and there's no limit (only if you withdraw cash).

Link PayPal to Google play. It's how I did it.

Yeah I woke up 50 minutes late thinking I'd burnt my chance but seems surprisingly calm. 😅 Guess that's what happens when there's no Discord or Reddit marketing.

I actually didn't get a captcha check on checkout nor a phone number confirmation, just the initial password protection (which indeed was super useful).

Hi, Had a strange one, I ordered the SE edition and got an email confirmation., however I then received a txt from my bank to say the transaction to say the payment has been declined so not sure if my orders going to get cancelled or not, is there anyway I can check the order to make sure its ok, I did receive a confirmation of the order so not sure?

Your order probably didn't go through. Shopify doesn't detect problems.

Hey friends! Finally caught up with everything :] Orders are at around 250, lots of extras! Thank you everyone whos joined so far, been wonderful! Lets talk about some things!

I wanted to get this board out to 150-300 people

I wanted it to go to those who want it as well. I've said that many times in my Interest Check. Its why I captcha'd the cart and password protected the site

As this board was marketed to the 1%, only the 1% have joined :cool:

I think that were all used to the same typical GB's that feature the same designs, get botted and run for seconds. This buy was definitely not that, and I built it up like that as well from the start. Back in the day, the keyboard group buys that I was around used to run for months, and while most people would attribute it to something like there being less people in the community, I'd like to think that its because the designs were more unique back then and not appealed to the masses. I said it many times in my IC that I expected the buy to be relaxed and not frantic haha!

I'm more than appreciative that everyone had a chance to join, pick out things comfortably, and enjoy a relaxed well put together drop. MOQ+ was hit in a day, and I'm giving the rest a chance to join before locking it up!

In the following days I will work on a Discord as well! :]

HOWEVER, GB will be locked by MONDAY, and I will work on organizing and placing orders with the appropriate manus shortly after!

Thanks all,
Koob

He killed bots buying for people while they were at work, etc.  I am surprised it is still open as well, but it is fall in the middle of a pandemic. I wish I had enough money to have purchased two now.  I am starting to think I may have preferred that polycarbonate.  I technically like a few colors only of a product, but I really liked all of them on this buy.  They were all well chosen.

lol this has nothing to do with bots. Nobody botted this release. The product sat forever. The reason it was easy to cop is because there is good supply to demand.

Same. Great board, and props to pearlboards for the good run. Not needing to stop bots is a GOOD thing for everyone. Supply and demand meeting 1:1 is hard to do and very good.

Morning friends!! Thanks as always for everything! Just small announcement, catching up on order changes and addons. But,

Will close the GB tonight, extras and all!

That gives me a good amount of time to export everything and send it over to the manus on time so that this gets started!

Friends, no cancellations after tonight! Simply post here that you would be liking to sell your spot or just resell it after it comes! If you give up a spot, I can edit it all in Shopify and fix kits, shipping, whatever. This will just make it easier for all of us If I don't need to be hand editing any excel sheets.

Back to work! -Koobs

Hey Rex! While I have no idea, I can only assume that any normal cable used by us enthusiasts should be fine. The hub is low consumption, there are only 12 RGB leds on the pcb, and no top leds. So not bad overall :eek:

Man, I was soo ready to join this. But I just can't stand behind the insane 130$ shipping and the thought of the taxes and import fees in my country... I just can't justify 1300$ at this point... Big sad..
I'm really jealous of all you other guys getting to join in on this amazing keyboard! Thank you Koob for this keyboard and good luck with the groupbuy!!!

Hey fellas, just a quick heads up. All GB money is sitting in Shopify right now. Payout was scheduled for Friday, but Shopify halted it for a review. I had to upload the following

Photo ID - Front
Government-issued ID (e.g. passport or driver's license)
Photo ID - Back
Back of Government-issued ID (e.g. passport or driver's license)
Proof of address
Utility bill (e.g. water, electricity, or gas bill from the past 3 months), lease agreement (dated) or property insurance (dated)
Proof of business association
Business license, business registration documents (with company number) or business tax filing record
Image of inventory
Image of inventory at your store
Proof of Inventory
Dated invoices from supplier outlining quantities or dated manufacturing agreement
Social media links (related to your business)
Add them in the comment box or attach a document that includes the links

Fingers crossed that the review goes well!

And the sooner the better please Jraybo

I am assuming a few of these things won't be possible. I know there have been other people who have ran into this issue with GB funds before, hopefully everything gets worked out in a timely manner.
