What's the GB time limit?

Definitely grabbing a set of BoW and WoB. Can grab both sets for cheaper than what the base kit of GMK Minimal goes for on /r/mm.

Any idea on what the black on the WoB looks like? Is it a black or more like a dark grey (a la Katakana)?

I wish we had a better idea of what both would look like. ePBT BoW vs Minimal vs Stormtrooper, etc

Still going in for both though.

If they ship in time before this GB closes, the 'classic black' keycaps from the candybar sets should be a good indicator. They're supposed to be the same coloring as these, and are also from infinikey.

I guess it was an error, since WoB is now 47 more expensive on Candykeys.

Replace an error with an even bigger error, nice. Unless this is the correct pricing, in which case I have no words...

170 is like 190$
70$ higher than US vendor, does that include shipping, tax?

This must an error.

On The Key Company website WoB Apple is listed as $120. That is roughly 107. And I am guessing VAT and some revenue for CandyKeys has to be added which puts it in the ballpark of ~135 for me. Coming from Europe, I will be better off buying from The Key Company itself if the price stays like that.

Consider that in EU also the shipping costs should be much lower to be delivered from GMK's factory..

You are absolutely right, but I meant 1U R3 CTRL. I know it is VERY non standard, but it's what I use :) (I have a Lily58)

I'll probably grab this anyways!

What's with the weird x glyph on the escape key on the apple set? there's an actual escape glyph on apple keyboards (and in their UI):

If that's not an option, why not go with the "esc" text as on katakana and as on any current apple keyboard?

How similar is this to GMK Minimal in color and quality? I know Minimal uses WS1 white which is very pleasant to the eyes. I am really interested to try PBT since I always hear it's so superior to ABS in both feel and sound (no shine is nice).

PBT colors are much less saturated, which makes it easy to spot the color differences, even between black and white. Also a little glossy feel to it due to material property.
But it resist yellowing, and shine much better than ABS, which makes it long lasting compare to typical GMK sets.

Thanks for the answer, makes sense that there will be some visible differences because of the material. Might still grab a kit before the GB is over just to have a plain WoB, it fits pretty much anything after all.

Very happy, I also was on pbt katakana and those came out a lot more grey than black. These are incredibly close to being black. In certain lighting it's not exactly black but for the most part its real nice.

Oh yeah, I should post some pics. This is the Apple WOB kit.







I'd say the reverse dye-sub job is pretty great, the black holds up well even with a lamp shining directly on it and the legends seem really sharp. No obvious alignment issues to me, but that's also not something I'm very good at detecting. Good texture, but I think I prefer the texture of my EPBT Extended 2048 set, which feels silkier I guess. Overall, I find it superior to the EPBT set because it doesn't have any of the warping issues or stabilizer issues I had with that set.

My one complaint with the set is that the homing bars are not very pronounced at all. I believe that is something they are planning on adjusting, though, and they still work, so I can live with it. Overall, big thumbs up.

Received boths sets in Canada and very impressed with the packaging! Definitely makes the GMK packaging look cheap in comparison. The dye sub quality is fantastic and only complaint I would have would be echoing that the homing bars aren't pronounced enough.
