Anyone interested in PLU ML-87 group buys?
« on: Wed, 30 March 2011, 08:55:16 »
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Update]

So the first batch is almost sold out, looks like people really like the WHITESSSS haha.

I will be starting a new thread for the second batch, this time the estimated quantity will be enough for every one.

BTW, I still have one Black PLU ML-87 with brown switches left, I know the color might not be appealing too much, however, it uses POM keycaps, for people here are group buying PBT keycaps for like 50 dollars inc. shipping, you guys know that you will love POMs haha.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

so plu ml-87 is fairly cheap for a small keyboard, and it has media keys and other stuff on it with nkro i think. you guys are already familiar with.

on Taobao it's like a little bit less than 60 usd, excluding shipping.

So I was wondering if you guys are interested in a group buy of this cheap mech keybaord, with the quantity being large enough, I think I can pull this off for slightly more expensive then 60 usd, in your hand ( including shipping from china)

I know I am a new comer to this forum, thus I am willing to make transaction through ebay or paypal or whatever that will protect u and me

let me know how this sound


comes in black or white, cherry black/blue/brown

black


white

I like mine (white with blues) quite a bit.  Might be interested in another at that price point (white with blues).

Just want to point out that it is not NKRO. It is 6 keys conflict-free under USB and 9 keys conflict-free under PS2. There are also optimizations of the Key conflict for the gaming.

@OP - I've got a guy in Hong Kong who can source these from the manufacturer. Would you be willing to work this out together?

Hi there, so I will be ordering 3 white ml-87 cherry blue mx, with maybe one set red keycap and one set blue keycap.

these are ofcourse not only for me, so I will maybe keep one, or if there are three persons wants it, I can let go mine.

they will arrive here in us next weekend, so you will probably get it real quick.

if you guys are interested, I am willing to go through the official procedure of geekhack forum for a group buy.

since this time there are only 3 kbs, I will just do a probona thing here and will basically let go at a little bit more than 60 dollars: price of the keyboard+shipping to ne + shipping to you. so i think the final price should run around 70 dollars or less.

let me know how this sound

Great keyboard to type with, not so nice to game with.
On top of 2KRO, it "ghosts" when you hold "w", "shift", "a" or "d", and hit the "space bar"... it also registers a number.  "1" or "2", I forget, I have both set for weapon scroll.  
Very frustrating during a fire fight, when you suddenly whip out your secondary weapon.  :twitch: :biggrin:
