That sounds terrible.

I guess I'm lucky: silver silver silver only thing I'm ever interested in. Goes for all (aluminum housed) keyboards. Blue with Dasher (or dancer? Whichever) is tempting, admittedly, but I didn't buy that set anyway so doesn't much matter.

It's okay, it happens to me too, I just kinda sugarcoated the stress and process in picking colors. E8-V1 and the MIRA were even more stressful, had me actually agonizing over choices/options for a bit.

I've gotten better! But yeah, I'm glad I'm not the only one Slash Emporor! Collecting has never been a super healthy thing in my lift, addiction is a really accurate term, but it's healthier than drinking or smoking or anything! I am, actually, getting out of collecting Playing Cards and shifting to Keyboards because it is way more manageable financially for me.

I am thinking I will keep the one I end up liking more and sell the other

Personally, this board, more than any other coming my way, has me pondering all the different configurations possible. That is my idea of fun. So two Exents...? More fun? Or a cry for help? According to "rustywok" logic, if one Exent is a very good thing, surely two must be a very, very, very good thing.

Looks like that taoboa listing doesn't end until April although Google translate may be wrong.  Hopefully it's already in production and we don't have to wait until then before it starts.

To the people who purchased the EXENT Premium Kit, would you like to add $60 for bonus keys?

1800, HHKB, Moogle, Winkeyless, and other adapter keys will be included.

Tempting. Do you have any actual photos of the keys yet? I might have missed it, but all I've seen are renders and a photo of only the ESC key.

Am interested, but could you provide a chart or render of which keys will be included (including row profile as well, I think that would make it easier for people to decide!)  :thumb:

Depending on how extensive/comprehensive the kit is I most likely would/will be, Sheraton - if you manage to get a list/mockup of the keys included I'm sure others would be too, I'd be very curious to see exactly what'd be able to be included in for $60. Considering the "base" set was fairly cheap I sure would not mind dishing out a little bit of extra cash for the sake of flexibility!

Is it possible to upgrade if we didn't buy premium originally? The lack of support of other layouts was a deal-breaker for me. I'm not really interested in the other premium stuff, just want the full keycap set.

We have a lot of extras made due to the large MOQ. The boards are already in production already. Don't worry.

Awesome!  You the man.  :thumb:

I think it may have been asked, but what's the possibility of getting an aluminum base when you have the extras?  I'm not 100% sure if I want one, but I've really been thinking about it.

I'm in the same situation.  Would love to pick up a keyset with extras, as I didn't order the original set for the same reason.  Thanks!
