50 dollars for shipping to Germany? O.O
If you're talking about the shipping & handling fees in the invoice, I'm pretty sure that the PayPal fees are bundled into it.
Just paid my invoice.

Haha, sorry for not noticing sooner!

Yes, Feng says that they are still available for the GB, just that a revised version with a smaller gap is unlikely.

TBH, I don't see the problem anyway. This will match my red hammer case very nicely. If only it was Alps. :P

My only concern with this layout is on the far right side, some of those keys kinda stick out a bit because of the contour profiles. So for a keyset I would have to use the number keys (unless there are some other keys that match the row that I am forgetting about) or just have it stick out a bit, would this be that noticeable when using the board? Or use a flat profile, haven't tried one yet though.

But otherwise, looks like an incredible board.

I just can't get comfortable with any of these layouts. Even if I pick the one with 3x1.25u on the left side of space and a normal 6.25u space bar, I still need to find a short right shift and 1.5u caps for the right side...

For any kit I want to put on this board.

Which means it won't be my go-to-board.

Which means it's really expensive for a "sideboard"...

Which doesn't help me, since I already own most of the keysets I want. Getting those kits now is not going to be easy.

You could use RGB/CMYW/CMYK kits to fill in the modifiers and the shift key.

V2_A is my favorite layout but that lip and bottom led position...  Guess I'm going V1_A.  Now the only question is Aluminum or carbon.

I kind of wished that the 'space-fn' bar was more aligned with the actual Spacebar :(..
Even though it's centered with the keyboard, it seems kind of odd that it is 'off-set' with respect to the actual Spacebar. Seems it would look a little nicer and also function a little better.

@feng I'm guessing this is already finalized and won't be moved? Are there also more pictures of the V2 from the front, so we could see how the FN bar relates to a 7U Spacebar?

From the IC thread in reference for centering the fn "That sounds a really good idea. Unfortunaly the producer said we're not able to change the location of the FN key. It's not easy to do. However he said it doesn't affect the efficiency of using the key even though it's not aligned with the spacebar." https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=61714.0  Looking at the pcb I can see why.

Now for my own question.  Does anyone know what the square LEDs from @1:20 in the demo video http://goo.gl/5SJYGN are or how to acquire them?

I know this question will show how new I am, but:

Should I get PCB or Plate mount switches for this?

From looking at the PCB, it should support both plate mounted and PCB mounted switches. The only difference is that PCB mounted switches have two plastic "pins" on the bottom.
Some PCBs don't support PCB mounted switches, then you just have to clip off the two plastic "pins" and you're set. :)

Either would work. Plate might be a slightly more hassle-free since you won't have to battle tight-fitting legs every time you want to swap switches, but it's pretty trivial at best, I'd say.

I'm glad that the GB is finally here!! It's such a beauty feng!

But man, why no ISO support :'( this makes me sad and I think I have to skip this GB.
I thought the v1 version was able to support an ISO layout(?).

Yep. Too bad.

Did some digging. Here is what I found: http://www.enjoyclick.org/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=10316&extra=page%3D3. Given those pictures, it seems like we're looking at the grey case in this thread.

That wrist rest with cut-out for the Fn key is pretty great.

Also, some more pics with the differences between v1 and v2 here.
