[IC] E7-V2 75% Custom keyboard(Wait prototypes treatment )

E7-V2


















More pictures here :https://imgur.com/a/qsS79jO

Hello everyone Excluisve here

Two years ago we had our first 75% keyboard E7-V1 group buy. Since then we’ve received lots of PMs about next round of E7-V1. Finally we planned to reboot this series this March.

We had LED version for the E7-V1 and also said we might provide the name tag version in the future. Even the name tag is already a well known signature for E6-V2 and E6.5, it’s probably not appropriate to put name tag onto E7 series now as the market is full of various name tag keyboard designs recently. I wish this time will be a brand new design, so I just gave up using name tag again.

I really really love E7-V1, thus we kept the classic layout and clean design of E7-V1 on the new board. While redefining this keyboard to make it better suit my idea and meet keyboard enthusiastic’s pursue, we will name it E7-V2. And to us, E7-V2 will be the milestone.

[/b][/color]


The structure:

More


1. We will be using daughter board for the USB port, to resolve the problem of USB port moving up and down caused by gasket mount system.

2. Separate the RGB panel on the front to avoid light bleeding
3. There will be a 3mm silicon dampening foam put between the plate and the PCB. The dampening foam will have extension
parts on both front/back and left/right sides. With such extension parts on all sides, we could totally avoid the plate touching the case. In addition, it will be much easier to align the plate/foam/PCB into the top case, even you haven't built any gasket keyboard before.
4. PC middle frame is used to allow underglow to shine through sideway, and it's also the bottom support for the gasket.
5. The popular multi-color crown LOGO from E6.5 is back! If you look really carefully, the LOGO on E7-V2 consists of three parts, therefore, it has the ability to let underglow shine through so it can light up.

6. Instead of o-ring gasket mount used on E8.5 and E6.5, we will be using rubber gasket on E7-V2. The main benefit using rubber gasket combined with leaf spring plate this time, is to provide excellent flexibility when typing (you have to try to know if you like this or not, after all, it's all preference). But the downside of using rubber gasket is that we have to give up PC plate as it might not be suitable for this structure. In addition, we have to optimize and test the design of gasket mount on the arrow cluster with multiple iterations, all due to the principle that we stick to from beginning: original layout on slim bezel. We will do more testing to find a good balance on the trade-off, stay tuned!

It's definitely a challenge and difficult thing to never compromise on the design, as well as keep iterating and testing on details within the limited space that we give to this board. But I believe this will ultimately pay off, on the day when you receive this wonderful keyboard: E7-V2 :)

The E7-V1 is one of my favourite keyboard designs ever so seeing this pop up was very exciting! However I'm a bit torn because the design is a lot more "busy" than the V1, which I found so appealing because of how minimal it was. Tempting for sure, but not an insta-cop for me.

Looks so good
75% with a good layout are few and far between (at least compared to 65 and tkl)

I'm glad to see this coming back, I hope the colours stay true to these renders.

E7-V1 was one of my first groupbuys and to this day is still my favorite board that I own, so this is a no brainer for me.

Will the PCB for this be compatible with E7-V1? I know you said probably not on discord when I asked before but just wanted to see if you had any updates there (it's terribly hard to find a V1 pcb nowadays)

As much as I am interested in this board, doesn't it feel a little bit too pricey? Just comparing this from the v1 which was $350 and how it justifies the extra $85. Probably still gonna get it anyways

E8.5 needed another 45$ piece to make it it gasket mount. So now it's 395 or so vs this and now we're to rounding error difference.

Not to mention that this is a much more difficult kit to make than the v1. More parts, more machining...

Would have loved to see the 2 rightmost keys on the top to be close together without any blocker. In my mind it just makes sense for it to be Home & End. Home key on the left to go left most of the line, End key on the right to go to right most of the line.

Then the 2 keys along the right below it to be Page Up & Page Down.

Just my 2 cents.

That wouldnt work since this is actually a F13 layout. The F13 key lines up with the backspace, where as if they were combined together that would create an odd stagger. the 7 led blocker cut out two keys there, so thats where Home got cut out.

Or you could also just have the standard 12 F-keys, with the 1u blocker between the esc key and F1. IMO this looks great as is.

My favorite combo so far is the grey, but that burgundy accent on the bottom really throws it off for me.

I second this,  I think 2 colors on a board is just perfect.

Mine is going to have GMK ashes on it - which colorway do you guys think would work best with that?

I am hoping for unlimited GB, I am always missing out lately and this is my favorite styled keyboard (75% with exploded keys). I missed the 7V because of travel and moving, so really happy to see a similar styled keeb!

Group Buys are a bit different than ordering from somewhere where the keyboards are always in stock.  You have to have the manpower to QC the boards.  Sometimes these teams only consist of a couple of people.

Very classy implementation of backlighting. I'm a little iffy on how the inside of the logo on the back looks when it's using the same color as the north-side. Perhaps just making it polycarb with a light diffuser would help? It could make the whole thing look tacky, though. Aside from that, the board looks wonderful. Great key layout, lovely details and strikes a great balance between too minimal and too busy. I would love to see some exploded render to highlight the mounting system, but I'm absolutely interested in joining what will hopefully be an unlimited group buy.

Okay, I read quite a bit about Excluisve boards in my past months down the rabbit hole, and although I have a Primus on the way, I will definitely get this (if I can -> hoping for unlimited GB). Now I’m just excited for the color poll to close. Excellent work, man, really top notch!

So the video and renders show an ISO Enter, but without a split left shift :-/

PCB images show the soldered version as supporting ISO Enter and split shift, but unfortunately only an ANSI hotswap.

Can anyone confirm?

Solder PCB literally shows split left shift in the layout, of course its supported. The renders are just renders. Just no ISO hotswap, but thats never a thing anyway.

Really excited for this as I've decided to make this my first high-end purchase. 75% ANSI is my sweet spot for layouts.

Any estimates of the delivery? The Satisfaction75 was the other 75% board I am considering but I'm less of a fan of the knob/LCD positioning (ruins the aesthetic IMO) and the estimated delivery is Q3 2021.

TBH, I wouldn’t bet that this one comes much earlier. With GBs, setbacks are normal, QC is a challenge and we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, so... Just my 2 ct., but I would just expect the worst (arrival in about a year or so) and be positively surprised if it turns out to be earlier.

judging off the E8.5, I would be shocked if this board ships before the Sat75r2. CK is pretty good with their timelines usually.
