[GB] 75SQ (Acrylic 75% keyboard) [Schedule updated.]
« on: Tue, 25 April 2017, 02:56:05 »
Hi, I'm back with 75% version of SQ

Looks like CPSQ but 75% and no steel plate this time.
I think Acrylic is best option of this :)

There are two types of case one is normal bezel type and the other is VIKI type
Here is the pics,

More pics,

Required:
L3 PCB: $50
CASE  : $60
PLATE : $15
SHIPPING : $30
= $155 shipped

Order example:
Required : PCB + SQ Acrylic case(Bezel or VIKI) + Acrylic plate(A, B, C)
Optional : Assembly (I will take 10 maximun for assembly, I would not send invoice the order after 10)
Shipping : 30$

Time line:
Order close : ~ 15 May
Produce      : ~ 15 July
Shipping     : 15 July ~   ( shipping will be in oder of invoiced)
Shipping     : 15 Aug ~

Sincere sorry for all.
I had spent almost a month with tough work....
I would like to ask your understanding for a month delay.
I have a personal plan in September. So the 30 Aug is the deadline to shipping all.
Sorry again for delay and I will update as soon as I get the PCB factory out.
Thanks.


Sincere sorry for all.
I've been though another tough month.
I'm sorry to beg your understanding for another month delay.

I canceled personal trip to Europe on September as well because of killing workload.
So this GB is my 1'st priority now following my living job.
I'm ordering the PCB now and I'll update the progress every week or 10 days from now.

It seems bad luck to run this GB.
I really appreciate your patience.

Thanks.



18ht Oct. 2017
Apologize for huge delay for this GB.
It was definately not a good time to start GB.

First, I will receive produced SMTed PCB in mid next week. I asked my friend to receive. I will post the pictures.
Second, I would been US for business trim until 29 Oct.
Third, I will have time enough to handle this GB since I get back to Korea after this business trip.
I am not the heavy maker nor a scammer and this GB was mostly want you to try my layout of this PCB.

I can not say nothing about your nervous waiting but beg a month patience.
I promise all keyboards shpped in November.


Order Form:
https://goo.gl/forms/t7lLnAgznbEVpbPo1

Serendipity will help me in US for smooth process of this GB.
Thanks Serendipity .

Oh boy! Any chance to see what layouts are possible?

I only care because of wanting an ISO enter. Long left shift is fine by me. If it supports ISO enter than I'm selling my KBD75.

Is there any extra cost involved if I would like a "custom" layout? Let's say ISO with Detached F-row?

Looks to me as Bezel has, well, a bezel around the keys, while the other have the "plate" as the topmost layer ("floating keys").

And you do realize that changing the led orientation means redesigning the PCB?

I believe last GB outside of assembled orders completed in a little under 2 months (excluding extras).

Hopefully smooth sailing on this one too!

I think LED on north side makes GMK unusable (an feel a line touching the led) unless you sad it to the bare minimum, on the south side there is a similar problem but it is much less sanding. (using 2x3x4 led)

Looks nice!
May we please get a picture of the underside of the keyboard showing the whole thing?
If I wanted a 1.25 1.25 1.25 6.25 1 1 1 1 1 1 bottom row layout, I assume I would have to go with the "D. Custom" option on the form?

The two prototypes went to two other members on gh, I can ask them for more photos if needed.

Outside of this picture, the sides are curved in and the rest is as you can imagine, simple.

No the Custom layout I believe applies to the case itself, the PCB can fit that layout already

Thanks, I was looking for a picture showing the entire keyboard foot. How is it attached to the bottom of the case? Can it be swapped for a pair of screw-in feet?
The custom option is located in section "2. Acrylic plates". Despite the PCB supporting many layouts, the plate could render some unusable.

Upon checking, I might be wrong about the custom layout (you might need to put in a special request as it is the plate that needs changing, And yes on the screw-in feet, previously you could add duck feet (aluminum long feet)

No it's the height VIKI has no bezel, the switches are completely visible, BEZEL just has a bezel so that you don't see the top of the switches

Yeah, the bezel just means the case is visible and I think (not sure) that there's one more plate so the "bezeled" case is high profile but VIKI are floating keys.

Hey leeku, is it possible to do split backspace that is also compatible with normal one?

It would look bad and not firm to switch. so I make it separately.
If you want 1u x2 for back space bar, describe at D.custom plate on the form

Yeah, I don't quite like Noppo Choc Mini and the only reason I chose non-detached was because in one photo, I saw the Page Up and Page Down button on the top row. And I need Page Up/Down. But I suppose your PCB is highly configurable, so I could have them even in detached.

Can I still change? I will have to look at the photos a few times.

This is the layer holding FN key I am using currently.
I'm addicted with this.
It looks little odd but it is worthy to try :)

PgUp/Dn is accessible only left hand. I'm using H/W macro with blue keys. It is quite good for memorize with initial character. like H to "hello world!" Y to "yap!!" like this..

 not individual key lighting, i meant the ability to change the in switch led brightness of ALL the keys. Right now they are either on or off but you cant dim them, so its either bright or nothing at all.

could you link the newest version of jigon here too please?

Hi Leeku. Is it possible to have 1.5/1/1.5 bottom row with split spacebar?

Edit; I've estimated what I could with pictures of the PCB and it looks like key spacing would be off with 1.5/1/1.5 alternate layout and split space; 2.5/1.5/2.25 spacebar seems possible, but 2.5 is too uncommon and creates other issues with spacing. If you'd like to confirm anything, it would be appreciated.

There are lots of group buys running now, especially those made by GMK. Look under Group Buy and you probably can still sign up for one. Otherwise, you can buy it from Classifieds ..

Just checked in with him, PCB traces are done, but will need SMT/IC parts soldered on by the factory.
Should be a week, cases will be ordered as well (takes very little time in comparison).

Hey guys, this is going to be my 1st build. Just a few questions I have that could maybe be answered. Pretty much just not sure how the case LED's work. Are they coming already assembled or do I have to buy some and solder then in? If thats the case, I'm not too sure where to solder them.  :confused:
The only other question is if the kit comes with stabs or not? Thanks!~  ;D

The RGB underlighting should come presoldered. If you want per-switch LEDs you will have to solder those by yourself. I don't remember for stabs.

Wait, are you certain about this?  I specifically asked Lee this question and was ensured each switch had it's own LED.  This was one of my reasons for purchasing this keyboard...

Perhaps he meant each switch can have an LED soldered. I own a different keyboard that uses this pcb and there aren't any special presoldered per switch LEDs. The Zeal60 is pretty unique in having that. On other keyboards you have to thread the led through the switch so there isn't a way to solder the LED on before you have the switch in.

Each switch can have an LED soldered in but they typically do not come pre-soldered. RGB LEDs for underglow come pre-soldered though.

Wow.  I don't know how to feel about that now.  That was a lot of money to spend for something I thought was the perfect match.  I haven't soldered anything in 20 years and wouldn't even know where to begin to do this procedure.  Truly disappointed now.

Did you put the assembly service on your request? It was an option on the order form for $90.

If you ordered it fully assembled then you'll have your LEDs soldered. When I was talking about RGB coming presoldered and LEDS not coming soldered I was talking about for people who didn't order assembly.

I am worried mainly because I actually paid for the assembly services as well. While I understand that assembly takes time, I'd like some assurance, I guess. I don't know, more communication maybe. There's too many news of GB gone bad in GH and that made me nervous. Hope this is not the case. By August, we would have passed the 90 days window that Paypal gives.

There's always a risk.  You can go ahead and avail yourself of paypal to get communication and assurances, and pull out if you don't trust that, but beyond that, you pay your money, you take your chances.

You also have 180 days with Paypal, not 90.

I think there is a little worry, but then again leeku is pretty well known in the community, and has run GB's before. This doesn't mean it's guaranteed that you will get what he promised, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for a month and a half delay. Hopefully it comes sooner rather than latter

FWIW, I was also pretty antsy back in the CPSQ GB back in 2016 and desperately wanted updates. So I just emailed Leeku for updates on his gmail address and he was pretty prompt.

First post still says Aug 15th, but deadline would be Aug 30th, so I assume that's the window in which boards are going to be shipped. Any chance we can get a confirmation on what the status of the order looks like? I think only the PCB's were supposed to be missing right?

looks like the schedule has been updated - and we're looking at getting weekly updates from Leeku.  I am guessing we won't be getting these shipped out by 30th of August if pcb's are only being ordered now, but I am still looking forward to this GB :D

Sincere sorry for all.
I've been though another tough month.
I'm sorry to beg your understanding for another month delay.

I canceled personal trip to Europe on September as well because of killing workload.
So this GB is my 1'st priority now following my living job.
I'm ordering the PCB now and I'll update the progress every week or 10 days from now.

It seems bad luck to run this GB.
I really appreciate your patience.

Thanks.

From the OP if people are just checking newer posts for updates.

given the original timeline of this GB a ~2 month delay is still pretty quick as far as keyboard groupbuys go. Hopefully everyone can understand that and be patient waiting for this board   :)

Leeku I hope you get some personal time in the future and thanks for devoting your already limited spare time to this :thumb:

He updated saying end of September so after that I will ask again. There is delays but understandable a buyer basically backed out making factory smt void but MOQ is being filled with another buy I believe.

I am worried mainly because I actually paid for the assembly services as well. While I understand that assembly takes time, I'd like some assurance, I guess. I don't know, more communication maybe. There's too many news of GB gone bad in GH and that made me nervous. Hope this is not the case. By August, we would have passed the 90 days window that Paypal gives.

There's always a risk.  You can go ahead and avail yourself of paypal to get communication and assurances, and pull out if you don't trust that, but beyond that, you pay your money, you take your chances.

You also have 180 days with Paypal, not 90.

from https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/archive-policies-full

Quote
We’re increasing the time for buyers to file a merchandise dispute (Item Not Received and Significantly Not as Described) from 45 days to 180 days.   All references in the User Agreement to “Opening a Dispute within 45 days” have been updated to reflect “Opening a Dispute within 180 days.” The Sections these changes appear include the Introduction, 3.15, 13.2 and 13.5.

So you have a little time before you have to make a decision.
I’m probably alone in this, as it seems other people are not voicing out. But I’d like to remind that by Nov, we would have reached the 180 day window given by PayPal. I think I’ll email Leeku today and give him till Oct 31, by then I will request for a refund coz I think 6 months is more than enough time to see result in a GB. I really like to have a 75SQ, but I don’t think I can wait any longer. Besides, it’s a great excuse to save money, lol

Edit: nooooo... I just checked. I made payments on 28 April and so the 180 day window is until 28 Oct - in just a couple of weeks. I really need to consider that options.

So, I emailed Leeku and he told me he will aim for 2nd week of Nov to ship out the parts and for assembled keyboards, it will be maybe end of Nov. He’s currently on work assignment in the US, so it is kinda difficult decisions to make honestly. Do you wait longer or do you ask for refund. And I also think it is better for him to drop a line or two here in GH, so there’s this.

Yeah, it's a bit concerning how long this has taken. I feel like Leeku's got a pretty good reputation within the community so it's unfortunate that this GB has been botched so much from a timing perspective, especially now that there is so much competition with things like KBD75 etc- but I wanted to see what all the fuss was about with Leeku boards.

I'll probably stay in because I believe in the process but I can't help but feel a bit disappointed overall.

Sure, timing is bad. But bad timing can be explained through communication in this thread. Spending a minute a week to update us should be something a GB leader should do, that's my opinion. Surely one can do that even through a mobile phone while in line for lunch?

Yeah, I mean I guess I should've stated that too. But to be honest it seems like 1% of people running group buys in the keyboard community are good with communication.

I work in R&D and while delays suck, as long as they're rather proactively communicated the negative perception of the delay is often mitigated because of that.

My suspicion is people usually don't like communicating in geekhack group buys because the reality is they dragged their feet or forgot to do something etc and communicating is "admitting" that, so they figure the better gamble is to try and fix it and brush it under the rug. Not saying that's the case here- just speaking in general.

I feel like anyone who has been involved with groupbuys here knows that these delays are almost expected. Leeku has a solid enough reputation that I'm pretty confident it will eventually be done and shipped. If you are the type of consumer who demands good service then in general, you shouldn't participate in these groupbuys. You are only fooling yourself and you're only going to get mad and complicate your life trying to get a refund or get someone to take your order.

@lac29, you probably did not hear about some of the more solid GB leaders here in GH - solid records for many rounds.. and then one mega group buy - he just disappeared. Even GON himself has dubious records.

From past experience I'd suggest getting a refund. This sounds the same as the reasons we were given for another group buy that took six months and no items were produced. Don't let it go past the 180 day window and just get your money back.

You could also ask to be reinvoiced which extends the period if you really are worried about your money but don’t care about time as much.

Apologize for huge delay for this GB.
It was definately not a good time to start GB.

First, I will receive produced SMTed PCB in mid next week. I asked my friend to receive. I will post the pictures.
Second, I would been US for business trim until 29 Oct.
Third, I will have time enough to handle this GB since I get back to Korea after this business trip.
I am not the heavy maker nor a scammer and this GB was mostly want you to try my layout of this PCB.

I can not say nothing about your nervous waiting but beg a month patience.
I promise all keyboards shpped in November.

Really depends on when during the GB you paid.  And if you're serious about disputing, you should try as soon as possible.  Sometimes they've done things past their period.

Still stoked for this!
