No chance rose gold will be re-considered as an option? I really like the Exent, but I'm not sold on the silver option (it looks a bit dull and industrial in the picture, imho).

I agree about the picture of the silver board, but I'm guessing it's because four of the five pictures are edited versions of the original, where the color has been altered.  I think the black is the original, and the other four are edited.  Maybe starting with black makes all of the other colors a little less vibrant?

I don't know, but I'm guessing silver will be closer to what we typically see in "silver" on other boards.

They are meant to be a little more matte/dull than the conventional silver anodise we see.

I was banking on rose gold for the EXENT, myself, since it was initially going to have that option and I committed to Hydro Blue instead of Rose Gold when I submitted my M65-A form (back when it was still a raffle instead of an open GB). Figured I'd get my rose gold fix with the EXENT to make up for it.

Oh no! Guess it's too late to edit your M65-A order? That really sucks.

I don't want to give up the Hydro Blue. I initially did want to put in for two M65-As because I really wanted Hydro Blue and Rose Gold, but since it was back the the slots were limited and it was a raffle, it'd be real lousy of me to do that, so I picked just Hydro Blue for my submission. After the GB opened up to everyone, I decided to just keep it at 1 M65-A and get two EXENTs (black+rose gold), since I like the EXENT's design better and the sheer amount of collaboration on it made it worth getting two boards for me.

I'm really interested in getting into this group buy, however as this would be my first custom keyboard GB if I commit, I have the following questions:

  • If I order this keyboard with certain switches, say the MOD M which isn't that well known yet, how easy would it be to change them to something else if I don't like them or they break? Is it just a matter of desoldering them and soldering in different switches?
  • Regarding the bottom case type options, do they affect the underside lighting at all? Or can I only get underside lighting if I choose the sandblasted poly-carbonate option over the aluminum ones?
  • Also what's the difference between the standard and screw-in stabilizers and which ones should I get?

Light does not shine through aluminum and I'm not sure whether I will like the poly bottom, so I ordered both.

  • Should be that simple, yep. If you're paranoid (like me) you might want to pick up and extra PCB with your order. I've heard nothing but good things about MOD switches though (aside from them not being as smooth as Zealios), so I wouldn't be too worried about them failing on you unless you get a dud.
  • I think MaNiFeX has you covered on this question.
  • Screw-in stabilizers are rock solid, but sometimes a little flexibility is actually good for stabilizers. From what I've read the preference is usually:

    Lubed, clipped, and otherwise modded stabilizers > screw-in stabilizers > standard stabilizers with nothing done to them.

So the Exent is an aluminum keyboard, right? Excepting the polycarb base-plate thing. Is it machined aluminum?

Just resubmitted my order, decided on grey instead of black.

Any chance we can get a teaser of the PCB, or more of the keycaps?  :-*

Yeah, they're premium, some of the best cards you can get for your money.

So what is everyone's thoughts on stabalizers? Standard or screw in? And will the 8 and 12 feet be swappable? I assume they screw into the bottom housing?

Going screw-in since I've experienced standard stabs coming loose from the PCB when I'm removing a particularly stubborn keycap. Not common, and not that big of a deal, but hey might as well go for something that is going to stay put.

... Now in for black, blue, and pink. Please no one talk me into getting grey... Just realized though that Round 6 Space Cadet would look really really good on grey.

What's wrong with talking you into grey haha? It looks fantastic. I might be able to talk you out of it though if you can't resist the thought of it paired with Round 6: the grey of Round 6 Space Cadet keys might be just enough of a shade off compared to the grey board that it will clash a bit. If I wasn't going for grey I would go black. Color preference is purely personal tastes, but this is how the board colors fall in my book:

Black = Grey > Silver = Blue > Pink

I can't see myself ever going with the blue, but it looks very nice. Would definitely be a strong option for anyone looking for something a little more different. And pink just isn't my thing.

All top/bottom case and the feet are CNC milled.
It's going to be expensive to have a mold made for casting, with such low quantity.
I think... Hehe

Hi there, we can't possibly offer all the keys in the supported layouts. The price of GMK keys are no secret, this is the best we can offer.

Btw bro, I couldn't find your order form submission in the google sheet. Do you mind filling the form again? Thank you =)


Edit: EXENT does support 1u 1u 1u 7u 1u 1u 1u 1u 1u 1u or 1.25u 1.25u 1.25u 6.25u 1u 1u 1u 1u 1u 1u for the bottom row too. I will update the supported layouts later.

Good thing there are tons of keyset options out there. Originative Carbon black looks pretty similar.

Because I'm already buying the black, blue, and pink lol. If I can sell a few boards I might jump on grey too. I was also never into colorful boards until I put GMK Skeletor on an electric blue LZ-RV. Once you get that one magical combo it's all over. For me it's probably gonna be GMK Laser with the pink Exent.

Oh, that's a shame. I will definitely participate if any of your future XXX board comes with a keyset.
All the best my bro  :thumb:

Good thing there are tons of keyset options out there. Originative Carbon black looks pretty similar.

... Now in for black, blue, and pink. Please no one talk me into getting grey... Just realized though that Round 6 Space Cadet would look really really good on grey.

What's wrong with talking you into grey haha? It looks fantastic. I might be able to talk you out of it though if you can't resist the thought of it paired with Round 6: the grey of Round 6 Space Cadet keys might be just enough of a shade off compared to the grey board that it will clash a bit. If I wasn't going for grey I would go black. Color preference is purely personal tastes, but this is how the board colors fall in my book:

Black = Grey > Silver = Blue > Pink

I can't see myself ever going with the blue, but it looks very nice. Would definitely be a strong option for anyone looking for something a little more different. And pink just isn't my thing.

Because I'm already buying the black, blue, and pink lol. If I can sell a few boards I might jump on grey too. I was also never into colorful boards until I put GMK Skeletor on an electric blue LZ-RV. Once you get that one magical combo it's all over. For me it's probably gonna be GMK Laser with the pink Exent.
You are the best! I would love a pink board with GMK Laser, but my wife said I am too old for that :(

The black does look really nice, but almost all my boards are black. Maybe that's just because it always looks good haha. :-\

Well I am in GMK Soware and waiting on SA Oblivion, those would probably look good with silver or grey.

Same problem here.  I was thinking about getting grey or maybe silver but in the end I went back to the old favorite.  I have a couple other ideas that would look the best with black so that helped my choice.

I'm probably going to use this board at work and I'm not brave enough for pink in public. I'd take a pink TGR-910 though ;).

Not GMK though! Red accents are super tasteful too.

You are the best! I would love a pink board with GMK Laser, but my wife said I am too old for that :(

Reminds me of when I was a sugar daddy of a 20 year old stripper.  Everyone told me I was too old for that.  I refused to believe it.  She was super cute, made me feel young, we listened to the same music, and we had a lot of fun.  Then after a couple months, I realized, I was indeed too old for all that.  $30 on a pound of jelly beans, $70 of Lush bath supplies, $200 on some lingerie, late night calls to get a ride from a club across town...  What was I thinking?

Of course, I had a ton of fun, but it could never last...  So yeah, take warning.  If you want to have some fun for a few months as dude in your 30s, feel free.  Your pink laser lady might just not last much longer than that!

I know the payment deadline isn't until 28 Feb, but when should we expect to be invoiced?  I'd rather pay sooner than later.

Anybody?

I just want to make sure my order was received and I didn't somehow miss the invoice.

I think invoicing after the submissions end will make sure it's more organized and allows people to make any changes to their order.
What would be more helpful is if we had a Google Sheet showing us our orders and options. :)

So the Exent is an aluminum keyboard, right? Excepting the polycarb base-plate thing. Is it machined aluminum?
yes
yes

Okay good. Wanted to make sure it wasn't cast. Def gonna join now.
All top/bottom case and the feet are CNC milled.
It's going to be expensive to have a mold made for casting, with such low quantity.
I think... Hehe

Hm interesting argument. I wouldn't buy it if it were cast anyway.
