Looks like it is already launched in the Chinese store at zfrontier, any idea when this will launch on the English version of zfrontier or other places are you launching with?

Oh damn...it says limited to 59 pieces on their preview post as well.. https://www.zfrontier.com/post/detail/5954

Did they change their minds about making it international?

guys calm down!! nothing to worry about I don't think. if not mistaken Orange TKL and Timeless both launched with limited runs in the Chinese market before going live world wide. If I am not mistaken they where limited to like 50/25 last time. This makes since if I am right that they have a limited run then do the full group buy.

You are right. GB will be launched on zFrontier's international site in two days or so. I hope so :)

hmm, by reading the descriptions I assume those early buyers on the chinese site get a free numpad?

Does anyone know if any of the PCBs used will be hot swappable?

Will definitely get a pad to match my pizza80, it's good to see you back Senter!


A numpad without the logo would be appreciated

Thanks Simon. It was CNY and I was in a car accident. now I'm back  :D

I'm not satisfied with the current numpad design. Without a logo, do you think 4 top macro keys look good?

Sir, will the pcb support hot-swapping switches? Thank you very much.

no the keyboard won't be hot swap but requiring soldering skills.

Would it be possible to install those hot swapping sockets on the pcb?

it would depend. The type of hot swap socket used on a K-Type etc.. wouldn't work. There are some cheaper less secure versions that might work just depends on the pin holes on the PCB. it really be hard to say. I would just assume they wouldn't because most people I heard that use those types of sockets solder then in once installed for added security. Which kinda defeats the entire purpose of a shotswap socket in my opinion.

There are some photos of the Orange TKL PCB in this review: https://www.ptt.cc/bbs/Key_Mou_Pad/M.1513424671.A.913.html

Don't know how relevant it is for the 75's PCB though

Thanks! just feel that disordering is a lot of work. Would love to have a hot-swappable option....

Lookin' really good!   How heavy will the Orange75 be?

IDK. We didn't make brass Orange 75 prototype. The estimated weight is 4kg but don't count me on this. The density of brass alloy is about 3 times as 6063 aluminum.
