I received an e-mail on 1/8/2019 that my order of a pcb and plate was shipped, so they started the shipping process.

Got my 1800s yesterday and the colors look really good. Thanks again, and thanks for the special brass plate (it's going on the purple one).

Currently typing on the cocaine white one with lubed v2 zilents and 67g progressive springs. For fun I also put 125g springs in the Code (Fn) and Scroll lock keys.
As a side note, Tokyo Nights modifiers work pretty well with violet tendencies alphas.

Does the finish change the sound or feel of the board at all?

Could somebody tell me if this is the correct orientation for the RGB's to be installed?  The white part goes on the top left part with the line?

That's a hell of a first build! It looks great.

I was about to ask here if a cable was included, and found the answer. Just got my kit and really like the screwless build!

But I find the set extremely lacking. It lacks SKIIDATA. Can't wait for that GB to start, to complete this build.

The worst part about this build is lubing the switches. And this needs a lot of them. Oh man.

Sounds like a driver issue maybe? Also are you using PS2 cause found PS2 is extremely hit and miss with windows 10 and MSI motherboards.

Will full kits be available? (just got into this hobby recently and missed out on the first round(s))
Not to mention the render with SKIIDATA *insert Fry meme - Shut up and Take my money!*

Just got a chance to build this board up over the past week. I added some weights and lined the case with neoprene sheets which take away the "hollow" sound while typing. The board is very solid and lovely to type on now.

Is there any update about further pcb, plates and/or kits production? Thanks.

Actually yes! There will be some restocks next week! PCBs will be back in stock as well as Unpainted black cases, a few left over painted cases from V1.9, some plates, and a new product all together! Also, coming in a few weeks will be the release of the R3 painted cases. All new colors, some old colors making a comeback and a completely new finish as well.

Great news.

I'm curious about something - how well does the TKC 1800 work without a plate, have you tried it? Would you recommend it? Thanks

The original G80-1800 was plateless, so it will perfrom similarly. I haven't typed on one without the plate though, so not sure on feel.

If you join our Discord you'll get full update details. Its much easier this way for me to keep everyone in the loop.

We restocked PCBs. I have to get an inventory on the plates on Monday. We are waiting on diffusers for unpainted cases. Most everything with the exception of painted cases will be in stock by mid week next week.

Gonna kick it off right after we launch the new website! And shortly after we will release R3. I didn't originally plan on it taking this long, however. I may add some consolation prizes for that reason.
