The Euro price is fixed price, it won't change.
Scroll lock... I didn't even think about it to be honest. It's a fairly useless key for 99% I would guess. If you really need windowed one there is blank keys for you to use.

Yes, it is not as cheap as many were hoping to be sure. It's an unfortunate side effect of having so many different keys. I tried hard to make it be extremely flexible, and as all encompassing as possible while attempting to keep the costs semi-sane.

I will probably order a complete set with the German language pack and fall back on ANSI if it doesn't reach MOQ.

I was only wondering because I think it'd be cool to have a full windowed set... But yeah, blanks work too.

Ouch, $176.42 for a full usable set for a TKL or 104 key keyboard plus shipping, $226.88 plus shipping if you want everything to have legends.  I like the alpha colors, but there's no way I can justify $119+shipping for a set of alphas.

Good luck hitting the MOQs.  It seems like there's just too much of trying to please everyone and too little focus on creating one cohesive set, but still I wish you good luck in hitting those numbers.

wow to actually get complette 104 set you need to pay $168? but then the alpha base set is missing all the language packs because I see 13 blank keys...

So $168 + language pack $49 + 10-15 bucks shipping= total $230-235 for a proper 104 full set?

Ivan I wish you GL with the GB dude, I'm sure you will find some people willing to spend $200+ for a set, but where you going to find 300-400 people to reach the MOQ? I think I already know how this one will end.

i agree.  as much as i'd love to get in this GB, i can't justify spending over 150 dollars on a set right now.  there's a lot of extra stuff in here that i would never use.

If the language is listed, it is whole and not missing anything, though a few languages won't have a few of the usual 3rd legend Alt Gr characters on a few keys due to availability.

I know the cost is a shock to many. Depending on how orders are looking we may end up needing restructuring some of the sets, or cutting down on some things to reduce the cost to make MOQ so we can get something produced. For now, I presented the sets as were discussed during the IC phase.

wow so many useless doubles just to make one set. I will have to come into some money to participate.....who do I know that is close to death and need to get in their will.....

Why are there keys in the alpha set that only have numbers on them? Just scrap them and reduce the set price, and all those blanks too so prices can be more reasonable. I counted 23 keys that could easily be eliminated from the alpha set and not be missed. Also what uses R2 and R3 arrows?

PS: I hate GMK MOQs

The generic numbers and blanks are there for those whose language layout is not offered. Blanks will come in useful on certain other keyboards too. Besides the numbers only numrow is sexy in any case. The second cursors are 'gamer' keys, you can put them on WASD/ESDF.
If anything the first things that would be cut is all the slight variations of the numrow keys, like dropping all those different 3rd legend versions... that would almost reduce the language kits by half right there.

I'd like to get to an affordable set before adding on "sexy", but that is just me.

Really nice work... as good as it gets for MX keycaps.  SP has nothing comparable imo.  Good job adding the 0 with the line through it, math symbols, nav cluster symbols etc.. You really thought of everything.

And, honestly, with an MOQ of 400, you really need to aim for more affordable than adding on extraneous caps that a handful of people might use or find sexy.  Like I said earlier, this really is coming off as a set that's trying to make everyone happy, but at the expense of cost, which, in the grand scale of things, will make it harder to meet the MOQ.

I'm also confused why you're forced to buy the NAV pack in order to get an Esc key, especially since it's a pack full of stuff that I guarantee you most people will not use.

Agreed. A re-shuffling is definitely looking like more of a requirement.

I'm curious how many people from all these different languages showed interest in the language packs. Maybe if this ran for 2-6 months it could hit MOQ after getting more exposure, but a month is probably a stretch unless deskthority and a ton of eccentrics that want tons of random weird keys come through.

This group buy really needs to be plastered all over deskthority, reddit, [H]ardocp, overclockers.net, Korean forums, and any other countries keyboard forums to get the percentages of people willing to drop this much on a set.

It should be called the "1%" set because that is who can afford it, and how many people will use the obscure keys  :))

What is the next tier of pricing at GMK? 800 or 1000 right? Lets go for that.

It's kinda sad that this set turned out to be this expensive. I was really looking forward to this groupbuy, but I just cant get myself to drop 120+ euro on a single keyset. If there was an option to get a normal ansi set for my 60% keyboard for under 90euro, I would be in for sure.

Maybe we should do a poll and see how many people with other languages are going to be buying? Seems like the language packs are the thing blowing out the cost the most.

EDIT: For example. Buying the alpha and US language pack means I will have 62 spare keys laying around for a standard ANSI. I know we're trying to help out a bunch of different languages but that seems excessive. Maybe roll all the languages into one pack and make the base set US/UK? Mods I don't have as much of a problem paying for spares as they're still caps I'll be able to use, the spare alphas are essentially worthless to me.

DOUBLE EDIT: I suck at math in the morning.

It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Agreed. I'm still in regardless, the price just means I'll probably only be buying alphas + language pack now.

At first, I thought these were all WoB doubleshots. Upon closer examination, it looks like the alphas are white on gray doubleshots.
