Updates:

08/04 - Some boards have shipped out to Korean members. We are currently waiting on a new batch of PCBs as many did not pass QC. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we DO NOT want to ship out a bad product. We want to make sure everything is right. No one wants a broken keyboard! I will update everyone ASAP when we get the new shipment!

High $300's, Low $400's from what I was told. I'll admit, the prices they're placing are a bit out there. I think they're taking advantage of their popularity. Not that there's anything wrong with that, just a little disappointing since I'm sure we all wanted them at a reasonable price.  :(

It's definitely pretty high. When was the original GB? I joined the original Jane and paid...$420 I think for that one? But that was a year and a half ago.

Does the $530 price tag include the PCB?

$632 with shipping if that's the case, $662 if not; that's a lot of bones

$530 does not include the PCB. Entire kit (case + PCB) is $560 not including shipping.

EDIT: $530 DOES include PCB. An extra PCB is $30. Sorry about the confusion!

Also, regarding pricing - the factory that he originally had these made at have raised prices. Believe it or not, this price took some fighting for. In fact, in order to get the price to this point, we had to raise qty for each board to 50 each. That's 40 more than we were planning on doing. Sorry if this is too much for people, but it is what it is. We did what we could.

BMW is there an option to put priority ?

EG : If i won EM7, I will not enter for dolphin raffle and vice versa?

If you win both raffles and would not like one of the spots, just let me know afterwards and I will draw again for the next person. Make sense? (It's way easier on me so I don't have to go through the lists and remove people and whatnot)

I believe so, but I will double check to make sure 100%. If you don't see an edit/reply, please PM me.

Regarding some questions asked on the form:

Quote
What amount will the package be marked as? (Customs declaration)
This has not been decided yet.

Quote
Is there an option to remove the text Geekhack Edition?
As of now, no. Lin wants to distinguish these from previous models. Sorry.

Do these boards have any weights? I know previous designs did. Also, I saw some letters on the bottom of the EM.7 render, can we see some more pics of that (or hopefully the letters are removed  :p)?

Dolphin and EM7 do not have weights. I'm not sure about v2 as I don't have one (although I'm fairly sure they don't have a weight), but v1 definitely does not. However, this board is very heavy. My board has a brass top so it's extra heavy, but v1 is about 5-6 lbs. (Mine is about 8 pounds)

Also, all renders are available on IC thread.

Here's an EM.7 with weight, I guess it's V2 then.

I don't think that's a weight  it's just another piece of anodized aluminum.

No blue for Dolphin or EM7. Sorry :( The only blue option is a very dark Navy blue and it was decided against for champagne gold.
