So would this be another redline group buy?

So would this be another redline group buy?

I wanted to run it and just use them as the manufacturer. Communication is extremely difficult. I asked if this was still possible and LifeZ asked me how many we would want. I replied to him in minutes and that was April 6th. No reply yet when I told him 30-50+ would be interested.

As far as appearance I'd be cool with the LZ-MX SE style, LZ-MX, or LZ-MX FE with some slight tweaks. I like my GON 75% and it is pretty ideal for me, but I do want something a little heavier and solid on my desk. The LZ-FE I built was amazing but I don't like 80% layout so I sold it. We'll see what happens but if LifeZ doesn't contact me back we can't proceed.

Maybe if more people tell him to get back with me he will see there is interest and we can make something happen.

I also kind of want to see what kind of work a local anodizing company can do here in Orlando. If they do good work I'd almost be interested in getting everything non anodized and do it all local. That way we can keep it cheap and if there are any scratches during shipping they can be fixed before anodizing, and then I'll make sure every individual keyboard is packed appropriately. That may not work for international though since it may be cheaper for those people to receive their packages directly from South Korea. Just an idea I had though.

Keep in mind GON's mx mini's are based on the PS2AVR board though.

Whoops, could've sworn it was a different PCB.  My LZ-MX Mini is native USB as far as I can tell, and a bunch of GON's boards that I've seen need the little extension module at the end for it to work over USB.

Because your PCB is MXminiU. You can connect direct to USB port.

Crap, didn't see the 75% part.  I'd still say the Gon route then.

I'm not sure if there are any other threads regarding this, but if there is still any interest in a LZ Mini MX 75%, then I'm definitely in.

It's a perfect in-between choice between the poker and TKL.

Maybe something changed recently but last I heard LZ was banned for scamming a lot of people out of keysets or something like that. Another 75% custom is being planned by Duck here: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=60293.0.

That is unfortunate to hear. I would still like to get one of their keyboards.

I checked out the Duck, and unfortunately its design leaves much to be desired, since it isn't as minimalist as the LZ-MX, and has a steep angle that I don't prefer.

That said, thanks for the link. I hope we can still somehow acquire/GB these keyboards.

Well, my understanding is that DrugER of Team Redline was running the DSA dolch group buy and a while after collecting all the payments he ran off. At this point it was too long after payment to file a case through Paypal. Supposedly he even moved house; the people who knew him IRL said they couldn't contact or find him.

In the meantime, SP started production of the sets before receiving payment (wat) so they sold them on their site to recoup the costs.

DrugER was also trading fake clacks and I think there was reason to believe that he was producing them.

LZ and GirlDC never did anything (to my knowledge), and were banned by association.
