Good morning GeekHack!

With the recent amount of Korean keyboards popping up on GH, I've decided that I will spend a lot of money getting a couple if I can.

Shoot me a PM or leave a message below. There's rare goodies in it for you including CCs.

Wouldn't it be more beneficial for everybody to finish or abandon PHANTOM, and start a second round for an even more kick ass keyboard :P.

I'm sure we have everything we need on this board to make a really good project.

yah, even if you have someone who can forward, it's quite difficult to actually get an order in

to all the brilliant friends who have left us, and all the students who climb on their shoulders.

I think he is saying even koreans have a hard time getting a custom keyboard.

And it pays off, doesn't it. =P  Congrats on scoring a few of the keyboards yourself.  You must have a lot of patience.

Thanks for the feedback so far everyone.  We all have to start somewhere, so if deciphering is the first step, then so be it =)  I'm looking to network here and find the right people, and if it's patience...then I guess I'll have to learn it

I think someone should start a GB and see how much interest there actually is in a Korean board and go from there.

Also, I'm sorry if it's off topic, but what's so special about them?

I'd kill for one that is like 356mini winkeyless +numpad, which I don't know what it is called. Those have unique layout which is not available otherwise.

acrylic > nothing :)

anyway, dan, even with a proxy it's hard to find custom boards for sale as they rarely pop up.

That's what I'm worried about. Even some Korean guys can't get any Korean custom keyboards. Like the gorgeous 456 series.

em...... Though i`m korean, it`s so hard get custom like 356mini , 356cl.
kbdmania and otd`s custom keyboards are get by !!time attack!! when GB is starts.
it`s end in 1 minute tops.(amount 50~150 sets)

if you want get them, new producion is easy than already being produced , used ones.
but otd didnt second production.
Hopefully kbdmania will do Secondary production.

Just Directly conversation with otd, kbdmania forums Operators.
they will answer about that.

Thanks for reading my inexperienced English.

So why do they limit runs so hard?  Is the point to make them hard to get?  That's just selfish.
