I'm willing to overlook the font because the description says they are doubleshot keycaps but I think that embedding the delete on a 75% is a bad move.  I'd put the delete above the right arrow key, shift all the navigation (home/end/pgup/pgdown) one row up and make the scroll lock an embedded key.

Ask around before they put these in boxes ....... :/    I think the expectation is to have as little embedded functionality as possible in a 75%, 60% is a different story...

I put Del over the Home key on mine.  Where Scroll Lock is on the MK board is a special function key on the Octagon.  I don't remember if it would let me assign normal Scroll Lock to that switch or not, but that location makes more sense for Delete than the Pause/Break key.  I never, ever use Scroll Lock.  :p

Any update on this?  Also, what size space bar and right shift is that?  Trying to see how easy it will be to put keysets on this.  Thanks!

From a glance I'd guess:
Spacebar = 6.25x
Right shift = 1.75x (Cherry 1800 style short shift)

Thanks

The legends look similar to those on the Royal Kludge RC930 RGB.

I know there's a ? in the spec sheet, but do you know if these keyboards will be Mac compatible?

Probably, but as for specific Mac functions (i.e. Command, Option, Return, etc), doubtful.

It would give it away.

Underside pictures of current samples would definitely give it away...hehe

Just a small update; the "Delete" key will now be on the top right of the board where the "Pause/Break" is now. The "P/B" is now a function layer and the "Delete" is the primary/normal layer.

Keyboards have begun production, there was a bit of work with odds and ends. We expect these later this month or early November.

No DIP switch, and no manual as of yet.
