May I know what's the advantage of having an EU proxy vs. shipping directly from me to EU joiners?
From EU buyers standpoint itís much easier to get EU proxy to handle importing all units (incl. declaring them and paying import taxes). Then all EU buyers can receive their units without any extra hustle because shipping would be inside of EU.

All in all it just offloads all import bureaucracy to the proxy, which saves tons of time to all EU buyers.

Looks great. Could there be an option for a 2U backspace plate? I like HHKB but could never adapt to the placement of backspace.

Looks beautiful with lights! What PCB are you using in the prototype?

Looking good. Wouldnít mind being my first 60. Canít wait for some engraving designs and/or brand badge improvement. Have you tried shifting the back mark to the left to balance the USB port? Possibly scaling it down too for more framing effect near the top and bottom of the case(?)

It looks pretty in the renders but from the prototype photos I think the front and side bezels are too large for my design tastes

Im so hyped for this. Def Interedted for this. I assume the HTE PCB from 1Up would also work with this?

Not a huge fan of the new weight design, but :shrug:

Also, 20-25 slots are going to go REALLY quick :grimacing:

Rev 2 renders look perfect man, I am all over this. Been on the lookout for a PC board for a while.

Like some other posters have mentioned, 20-25 spaces is really tight. Please consider upping the amount of units, especially if your target price point is met I think this will be a very popular product and a lot of people could end up missing out and being disappointed.

R1 finished a couple months ago. He upped the amount to 40 units.

Love the design. We need more board designs built around using readily available pcbs
