Will preface everything I say about this by saying I was not in the GB from the start and didn't follow everything about this except skimming over the thread a few days ago:

Just got mine, initial impressions are I am impressed. Color matching between top and bottom don't seem too bad for me. Minor scratch by the USB port and on the plate but other than that it seems great. Going to get it built today and will get some nice pictures tomorrow when I get my desk cleaned up :P

How do I program this thing, and how do I turn on the backlight? I'm assuming it has backlight support based on the resistors?

What does the PCB look like?

If the PCB supports QMK, then you need to program RGB_TOG onto a key for underglow (RGB on the underside of the PCB) or BL_TOGG for per-switch backlighting.

https://docs.qmk.fm/#/keycodes
I am basically worthless when it comes to programming keyboards. I see there is the noxary 268 pcb on qmk configurator but there is no noxary 260 pcb (which is what this is). I'll get it figured out soon I guess lol



ok I got it reprogrammed in qmk. dont need any help with that actually.  :p
pics tomorrow

So mine is all built and programmed now. Very happy with it :)







It just has stock retooled mx blacks because this is my gaming keyboard




Things I like:
Very low profile, it is impressive how small this board is especially given that it isn't a tray mount
Seams between top and bottom are very small and line up great
Finish is very smooth (noticeably nicer than 360c, mira, lz gh v2, etc)
Heavy (4lbs built)

Things that could be improved:
Plate is pretty snug inside of the top half of the case, have to push down on it somewhat hard to get it to go all the way into the top
Plate switch holes were on the slightly snug side, not too hard to press switches into though (might just be a preference thing)
Little scratches here and there (One scratch on back side of case, shown in 2nd pic. Scratch on plate by the noxary logo. Scratch on brass plate on bottom of board, shown in 4th pic.)
Resistors maybe could be tweaked:
I think the resistors could be changed to allow for better backlighting. Right now my LEDs are incredibly dim even at the highest setting, dimmer than how bright these LEDs were on the lowest possible setting on the 1UP 60 PCB they were on before.

When I have more time I will try to swap them out for something else.

Gorgeous! Looks fantastic.

Good that you were also able to program it accordingly

The resistors sure do look like they need a change -- the backlighting is incredibly dim!

If it weren't for chokkans youtube channel I would be completely lost in terms of building the QMK environment. Once that is set up its all pretty easy though thankfully.  :)

Great review. Thanks for posting with pics. A shame about those scratches but great to hear that the finish is high quality.

How is the color matching between top and bottom?

It is pretty good imo. Obviously not perfect, but a lot better than I was expecting. Most of the time there is a shadow that goes down the front or side edge of the case that makes it impossible to tell anyway.

There is a color tone difference on mine, with the top half leaning more towards a reddish hue and the bottom half with a more yellow hue I would say. You can kinda tell in the 2nd pic, ultimately it is what it is. I will say when the case was on it's way to me I had considered that I could either find a place to reanodize it or have it cerakoted, but after having it in front of me I have 0 interest in doing so now. Maybe some cases are worse than mine as far as color matching but mine is acceptable.

Thanks for such in depth.

On the improvement side, it's worth noting that only the top and bottom pieces were made new at this great manufacturer. The weights and plates were made by a pretty crap place. The small scratch on the back of the case is interesting, I'll pass it onto my rep but not sure what happened there.

Regarding the resistors, good to know. I think this is the first keyboard from me in a while I've seen with full backlighting lol

aside of the weird black smudges and circles on my weight, quite happy. built with lubed red pandas.

Ah that is interesting to know. The weight and plate aren't bad per se, it's just that the plate is probably ever so slightly too large where it slots in.

Honestly there could be a chance that scratch on the back came from the original owner, it just seems like it might be under the ano since it didn't take any color off the board.

I'll try to order some resistors and see what works best, any suggestions?


Still though, very happy with the board, it's going to get a lot of use, that is for sure!  ;D

So the caps lock LED is comparatively a lot brighter than the rest of the board. I will investigate this, maybe just a setting I could change in QMK instead of swapping resistors.

Bad phone pic makes rest of the board seem brighter than it really is but:

I received the board today and wanted to clarify some things. I tried digging through the post history (briefly) but didn't find anything.

1) Was there a reason/justification for why all the weights seem to be 01 out of 20?
2) Were there supposed to be bumpons included in the packaging?

2) there is, some are on top of the foam, others are inside the package.

Everything else turn out good?  :)

It's 1 out of 20 because there are 20 60Rs and the one you have is 1 of them. c:

Ah, I see the bumpons now (you even circled it!). Did you send out a form or something asking everyone if they were okay with all the weights saying 1/20? I honestly could've filled it out and forgotten or missed it, I just wanted to ask so I know why, is all.

I think everything else turned out good, I haven't tested the pcb yet but physically I see no flaws/dents/anodizing errors. :)

It's been one long ride through X60 and X60R. Looks like the wait paid off.







Finish and quality is 11/10. I see that people aren't taking kindly to how tight the plate is in the top piece, but the result is a very well-aligned board.

All the scratches, dings and marks are in the bottom of the weight. I'm still pondering what to do about that, but there's no hurry. The board itself is gorgeous.

As a blue gray case, mine lost the colour matching lottery; the bottom piece is more blue and the top is more gray. Doesn't bother me though; I just think of it as giving the board personality :))

Runs on stock Tealios for now, newly restocked as of yesterday and in my hands as of today. With how good they feel (this is my home board, so there are no noise concerns), my other boards will be the first to get the lube treatment.

Finally finished building my X60R today and I just so happened to receive Red Riot today as well so I figured I may as well try it on for a little while.

216040-0

Loving this board so far very solid feeling and I must say the Reset switch on top has to be one of the most genius things I've ever seen on a keyboard and is a god send considering X60R has 10 screws holding it together.

Concerning my anodization the Silver came out great and both halves match together perfectly, probably one of the benefits of picking a safe color like Silver.

Overall I must say that I am quite happy with this board and hope Xondat keeps up with this quality with his future projects. 10/10

Yeah the reset switch is pretty cool. I've always preferred a physical switch over one hidden inside a layer, so this one is great. And only need to remove the caps lock key.

Finally finished building my X60R today and I just so happened to receive Red Riot today as well so I figured I may as well try it on for a little while.

(Attachment Link)

Loving this board so far very solid feeling and I must say the Reset switch on top has to be one of the most genius things I've ever seen on a keyboard and is a god send considering X60R has 10 screws holding it together.

Concerning my anodization the Silver came out great and both halves match together perfectly, probably one of the benefits of picking a safe color like Silver.

Overall I must say that I am quite happy with this board and hope Xondat keeps up with this quality with his future projects. 10/10

It's been one long ride through X60 and X60R. Looks like the wait paid off.

Finish and quality is 11/10. I see that people aren't taking kindly to how tight the plate is in the top piece, but the result is a very well-aligned board.

All the scratches, dings and marks are in the bottom of the weight. I'm still pondering what to do about that, but there's no hurry. The board itself is gorgeous.

As a blue gray case, mine lost the colour matching lottery; the bottom piece is more blue and the top is more gray. Doesn't bother me though; I just think of it as giving the board personality :))

Runs on stock Tealios for now, newly restocked as of yesterday and in my hands as of today. With how good they feel (this is my home board, so there are no noise concerns), my other boards will be the first to get the lube treatment.

holy **** those are... not even close

They are reasonably close in colour. What you see after Photoshop is not what you get irl. :)) I wanted to emphasize the blue.

A few years ago, I would have been really irked to see something like this. Somewhere along the line, I learned to accept that life has inevitable imperfections, and more often than not, it costs way more in terms of money, time, well-being and relations to correct the imperfection than it's worth. If I was still that person, I'd still be bent over at my station right now resoldering the left shift key, which is rotated a few degrees clockwise unless I "tweak" it for photos. If I was still that person, I wouldn't be modding my dream truck right now and would instead be trying to throw money into the water to get into another one (which, in 2019, regardless of make, would be prone to just as many problems), just because it has a few "issues" that require a bit of time and effort to correct.

Plus, what would have been my X60 was utterly destroyed and unusable in that state. Aside from the colour, the quality on the X60 R is impeccable. I'll gladly take it.

that's QC not factory my dude, don't take this one off yourself

you saw that and decided it was up to your standard to ship out

you could have gotten it and went to the anodizer and said "hey these are two different colors when they are supposed to match"

If you read xondat's posts on the 14th and 15th of February you would see that he tried to see if the factory could fix the issues that he had seen. It's not really on him that this was within their tolerances, but hey don't have to read a thread to call someone out, eh?

I take it that this "jessica" is some breed of shill, and being labelled as such is supposed to hurt my feelings?  :blank:

You're smart, so try this one; it's called reading comprehension. I've already clarified previously that the difference between top and bottom is minimal irl, but I took the opportunity to draw out the blue when I was working on my photos afterwards, because I liked the vibrant look. Look at the other Blue Gray boards in this buy and you'll realize that the colour is far more subdued.

It's not a requisite that you "allow [your]self to think" that the top and bottom are identical. I never made that claim, either. Were you part of the R buy?

Looks clean - the mismatch could be considered a bit unfortunate, but if it doesn't bother the customer, then it's all good :thumb:

Love those RGBW mods with OG Beige, a great classic combo! And the Cherry Enter is.... well, the cherry on top :raughs:

There are 200 extra sets and the manufacturer told me they didn't have budget to fix the existing ones but ok

Keycaps are very different from keyboards

and further to the point people have been tape tricking gmk caps for years and nobody has rioted about it cause the fix is piss easy

i am short the three thousand dollars it would take to get the molds up to the standard you're looking for since i already forfeited my share of the profit (about $700) to actually have the sets made

to get the keycaps fully replaced it would cost about 10x that, to reanodize/refinish a keyboard it costs about $100

considering xondat's openness with his profits on his gbs i am fairly sure he has that kicking around

when it comes to that last question, at least red riot came out the right color and yolch is negligibly close. it's also worth noting that less that, i'm not aware of any complaints about red riot/yolch

if you wanna continue this piece of discourse please PM me, i didn't intend to threadcrap nearly as hard as i've ended up doing.

while all of that was genuinely funny to read, i'm glad exanile is happy. your shots also show just how nice the spacing tolerances are between the caps and the top piece. the isometric shot also shows how nicely the leftmost column of keycaps' bottoms align meet the height of the top piece.
