I've never understood the fuss over the red alerts... but that number row really ties the set together.

There are just some many keys and options available when you include the add-on kit and to me, that's what makes it worth the price and the wait. =)

Well then let me quote what was posted in this thread again..

Quote
They just started selling the ones with mismatched color frames here.  Find a proxy in Korea to see whether you can get one or not.  If not, I've read that us and DT "might be" included in the next group buy...  keep your fingers crossed.

the 356CL dark grey with Dolch and RGB has to be my favorite keyboard of all time.

that being said the ti Kmac is totally on that level. Put a dolch set and the new RGBs on it! I need a new background :p

Sold out within minutes (I think it was 2 minutes)
The organizer then re-run the group buy with the remaining 6 winkeyless titanium. Gone within 1 minute.

Tell me more about the 456?

The Red Alert looks absolutely awesome! So does the entire keyboard. It's very impressive. Hats off to a great project! This is the type of keyboard you buy someone as a gift and they keep forever.

Did you try them both? You must be a member of OTD.

I heard the designer of 356 series had put in a lot of thoughts in them. But it seems they are not obtainable and not many people have tried them. I even heard the new series is advised not to be traded outside the community. I guess it is probably why the series is not circulated.

No wonder I've never seen pictures of it ouside OTD or someone's claim to have one.  The 456 is just as difficult to obtain, I suppose.

Anyone knows the relationship between OTD and KBDMania?  Are people generally members of both forums?  Or you can only be on one or the other?  KBDMania seems to be much more open than OTD, based on what you guys said about the 456 exclusivity and the fact that a few US folks have the KMAC.

Nah, I don't think they hate each other (but I could be wrong on this one lol) and you can be member on both communities although OTD is more strict since they require you to activate your account via cellphone or something.  I've heard stories of "keyboard whisperers" or people that actually talk to their keyboards. :shocked:  I guess that's how obsessed some of them have become.  rip, you should be the first resident keyboard whisperer here. lol

I'm gonna start talking to mine. :bolt:

Haha that would be hilarious.  =D

Anyway, the KMAC continues to impress me.  it feels very quick and agile when I type. I'm used to the black switches and this one feels lighter (almost like reds but not quite). All in all, I really like it. There are a few quirks here and there. For example, the LED lights on the KMAC stay on all the time even when I turn off my computer!  I was told that there might be a firmware update to fix that.  I'll continue to post my impression of it here along with any other issue I may find. =)

Nice try. :fish:  But like I said before, once we start to have more and more of these imported keyboards trickle in, there's more chance of you seeing one of them pop up in Classifieds (either here or on DT).  I wouldn't be surprised at all if that happens. =)

Since this is KMAC related, thought you guys might enjoy some new pics of KMAC in different colors (borrowed from KBDMania, credit goes to 김재연):











My favorite is definitely the black/red one. =P

I heard that 456 is only exclusive to the members of OTD only.
