60% Cases are back and in stock @ PEXON!
« on: Fri, 17 October 2014, 09:17:28 »
Hi guys and girls, we are happy to announce that the popular cast aluminium cases, as well as CNC machined Silver cases are available for pre-order. The black cast aluminium case is incredible value for money, I've been using one for 3 or so months now and I have zero faults with it. The weight, typing feel are epic.

We are expecting these to be delivered in 2 weeks and all orders will be sent out as soon as they come in, plenty of time to get an early Christmas present in!

Available from here:- http://pexon-pcs.myshopify.com/products/60-aluminium-case

I highly recommend this case! It is cheap and make your keyboard more heavy and study and you can really feel the quality! My Poker II(signature) have it and I just love it!

They truly are amazing cases for the money, thats for sure. Still got my V60 in (yes they fit!) and I move  my board around every single day in and out the workshop.

I will take a look for you man. I have the black one, which has the same layout for screws, I have mine in a V60 mini with 3 screws and as I said, I am constantly using my V60 throughout the day and have had zero issues with it

Hello pexon, gotta say the CNC'd one looks very good.

Are there more pictures of that one? I mostly see pictures of the cast one.

Also, do non-EU buys get VAT excluded?

Will try and get some more pics of the silver case.

All prices are the same, no matter where you buy from

Just waiting on Vortex now bro  :thumb:

Cool, I was not aware that Vortex were the ones making these. :)
If its anything like the ones before, it should be great.

Just a few questions that aren't too important, but I'm curious to know about either way:

1. What type of aluminum is it?
2. Is the board flat, or is that rectangle part at the bottom non-removable? Just wondering about the tilting options.
3. Do you design these and have vortex make them, or do vortex handle that? I notice they're different from the ones MechKeyboards sells

I will get back to you with that info. Not seen the ones that MK sell, but I will do some research  :thumb:

A few questions:
  • Do you know if the CNC case is/will be available in any other color than plain silver?
  • On your website, the pre-order form is only for one generic type of case--can't select black or silver (the CNC silver or color version would be the one I'd be interested in).
  • And the third small question is, for shipping purposes, is it considered to be an "extra large item"?  So 21.50 to the U.S. or could it be custom-calculated?
Thanks!

Hey man.

This batch will only consist of the silver and black cases. We are constantly looking out for new products so we may be able to get more colours in soon, I get a lot of questions about gun metal, green, blue etc, we will let you guys know as soon as we can source them.

The preorder for the black one is here:- http://pexon-pcs.myshopify.com/products/60-aluminium-case
The preorder for the silver one is here:- http://pexon-pcs.myshopify.com/products/60-silver-cnc-aluminium-case

Shipping, it is cosidered a large item, so postage to RoW (Excluding EU) is 12.00 GBP for DHL Global Mail and 14.50 GBP for Royal Mail T&S.

If there is anything else you need, just let me know man  :thumb:

Ah, the case is not higher than up to the plate, so you would really need a plate or the PCB would be quite exposed.

The plate sits lovely and flush with the case, if you have a PCB mounted Poker X or something, it would be exposed yea

Thanks for the clarification, and I'll keep an eye on your updates on future color options--even if they will take a while to obtain.

If it's not too much work, can you take a photo of the silver one with an assembled PCB/keyboard on it? Just so I can have a better idea of how it looks :thumb:
