65% is probably the most populous segment at the moment - off the top of my head, a list of 65s that recently fulfilled or are due to fulfil soon: QK65 (two rounds), Zoom65 (two rounds and a V2), Jris65 (two rounds), Choice65, Cub65, Neo65, and Mode Envoy.

I appreciate that this uses more premium materials but you might struggle with making MOQ on this given that there are a lot of 65s out there you'd compete with and that I don't personally see a "gimmick" or niche for this to fulfil that's not already been fulfilled several times.

I don't want to discourage you or be overly critical but I think you'd either want to target an even lower price point or come up with something new to bring the market in order for this to succeed properly.

I like the big copper weight. My arbitrary evaluation of the price is that it's decent. But it is very competitive out there. There may not be a ton of people who like copper as much as me.

Design-wise, IMO, it is very interesting. Unfortunately, there is already a board that has a very similar design, in the 60% format, the Leviatan.
The price is very good, but I believe that is due to the fact that we are considering 700 MOQ, which I tend to agree with previous comments, is very difficult to achieve nowadays. 65% segment is full of good choices. Even with a good price, I believe the majority of folks that enjoy this design already move forward with Leviatan (I know it is a 60%, but still).
My recommendation is for you to explore other paths with a lower MOQ.
On my geek side, I would like to see more info about the PCB, if it uses a USB daughterboard, etc.
Good luck with the IC.

At a glance, there will be similarities, but the side and design are different as you can see in these two pictures.
And the interior design is also very different, not at all like Leviatan. keyboard design aspect is very limited, most of the keyboards are almost the same, you can find that point across many keyboards currently on the market
https://imgur.com/a/XdYfEMm
To optimize the cost, people will usually reduce its weight, but for me I really like using a heavy keyboard so I tried to optimize and push the weight of the keyboard to the maximum and still have can keep prices stable.
I can make this keyboard for a better price with only 2 piece design (including weights and case) and 1 mounting like oring mount.
But I wanted a really high quality product so I added another of my favorite mounts, the top mount. However that will lead to the cost will have to be a bit higher because at that time I have to design 3 pieces. (Top-bot-case)
That's what I can't say about the price compared to other cheap keyboards.
But to make a cheap keyboard universal to everyone but its quality is not good, that is not the purpose of my keyboard design.
Outside of looks, I'm very focused on the feel of typing, previous projects like RE65 I had to do 7-8 proto and lasted it for 2 years to be able to open the first GB. I really want my keyboards to achieve the best typing experience for consumers.

The only similarity to leviathan is the case resting on a big weight as a base and exposed on the side. I think the Luna from Percent studio and such were the first I've ever seen do it this way and it does look quite good. Leviatan and this also may look very similar because of the silver and copper weight. Though I think both boards look a little too simple so it's not a surprise they are similar. I prefer leviathan PCB mount though.

IDK I feel like the bigass copper weight, a top mount at this price which only akko has done so far it seems, along with the gummy dual mount seems compelling enough to me to take it over a qk or a jris

Please add split LShift on solder. ISO kinda sucks without having the full layout.

Echoing the request for split left shift support, ideally on both PCBs but solder especially. Not sure of the point of ISO return cluster support without NUBS?

I explained this on my Discord. Because I work with Manu, Eloquent's ex product manager, and got confirmation from him. But after he left Eloquent and there was no handover of work, there is now a bit of a misunderstanding.
For the EU Vendor it will be Keygem

Please reconsider the US vendor for this GB. They are backed up and their fulfillment is very slow. A lot of people have raised concern about their slow fulfillment and overall engagement in their server and yours. Unlike re65 this is going to move in high quantity therefore it is best to choose other vendors who are more competent to handle this kind GB. Novelkeys, divinikeys, knc keys. As long as the vendors are not backed up like vala.

Love the keyboard and am planning to join the group buy. Any chance you could provide the weight of the polycarbonate body, SS and Aluminium weights. Thinking of bringing the keyboard around study and travel so am concerned about the final build weight. Thinking of either getting PC case + aluminium or PC case + SS.

If you aim to be compact and easy to carry, go with aluminum weight.
But if you want better sound then go with SS or Copper weight

I'm quite interested on this board, but just a small doubt that worries me: Why is there no GB post for this IC under "Group Buys and Preorders" subforum?

Because I didn't create it on the "Group Buys and Preorders" forum, all my previous GB are like that. I find that posting in multiple places will dilute the information.

Because I didn't create it on the "Group Buys and Preorders" forum, all my previous GB are like that. I find that posting in multiple places will dilute the information.

I can understand that reason, but reading what Group Buy Rules and Guidelines (Updated 2023-09-11) (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=115197.0) states, every IC must have its corresponding GB post in order to be reviewed and approved by GH's moderation team.

It's just my opinion, but don't you think that in order to avoid any kind of suspicion about possible frauds or exit scams (I am not saying that this GB will be that) and in terms of transparency and best practices, would't it be a good idea to publish a GB post under "Group Buys and Preorders" forum for this keyboard? Then you can also post there all the updates during manufacturing phase till the delivery to vendors...

As I said before, that's just my opinion and maybe I'm wrong and this IC is the normal way of doing things for a GB...but for sure that from my side I would be calmer and safer in joining this GB...

The aluminium weight is the same material as the case, but it is just coloured in a copper look?
