Purp on rose gold half plate. Then literally right before it ended... got another pcb and rose gold full plate.... cc on fire.

Nice. I picked up a similar setup. Full rose gold plate and black half plate. I got scared to commit to just purple and gold

Just curious if the PCB will fit Mill-Max sockets? (Mill-max 0305-2-15-80-47-80-10-0)

It seems that Zeal is famous for its USB cable. Just wondering if we will be able to getting one in our kit? :)

This would be amazing, as I dont have any other usb-c boards (nor a cable, haha.)

Well, getting a cable shouldn't be that hard. And it doesn't seem that necessary, because people dropping 600 to 700 $ for a board (plus taxes possibly), would mostly buy a matching USB cable or sleeve it themselves.

Agree.  The purple looked awesome in renders, but it just wasn't a "safe" bet. 
I am bit surprised the silver generated that much comparable interest, however, silver (like black) goes very well with many key sets.
Now, if Purple ends up looking anything like the renders, it would be a rare gem among these.
(I went with black, bc it was safe  :thumb: )

Anyways, any updates or sample pics going on? Can't wait for these :D

There should be a few extras after the gb has shipped.  No guarantees of course.

Just curious if the PCB will fit Mill-Max sockets? (Mill-max 0305-2-15-80-47-80-10-0)
Curious about it as well! Is it possible that we get a spec for the holes on the PCB?

It's the same size hole as any other PCB I've made, and probably any other PCB anyone has ever made, i.e. standard Cherry spec. I know other PCBs I've made work with holtites and mill-max sockets.

I am scared that I will have nothing to look forward to after big daddy Xeno comes in the mail. Literally can not wait for the next update. I want to see how the Rose Gold came out so badly!

Current ETA is end of May.  Zeal will be attending Keycon so shipping will start at some point shortly after pending everything staying on track.

Sorry for slow updates, both Zeal and myself have been quite busy.
