I've wanted something by both of you for a while, this could finally be the one. Really interesting design (the the tray and gasket), following with interest!

Interesting. Still can't get my head around how the gasket would affect things when it's tray mount but interesting nonetheless. Gonna need more explanation on how this changes things.

I'm in the same boat there, I can see it having an acoustic effect perhaps but given there doesn't appear to bee any pressure on the gasket I'm not understanding how it could possibly effect the feel, would love clarification!

hii

The traditional tray has the plate/pcb assembly screwed directly to the case. The pcb is in contact with the housing unlike the top or sandwich mounted boards.
In the Unikorn, the pcb is not longer rests on or comes in contact with the case. The plate/pcb assembly is being supported by the rubber gasket similar to how a  sandwich board structure works.

Sam will post a typing video later too.

I am afraid not. The Unikorn case has tighter tolerance compared to the standard ones, it also requires some special cutouts to accommodate the gasket.

Thanks for the clarification, waiting for the video eagerly :) - I'm still unsure how the plate mount screws don't create a point of contact between the pcb and the base. Sounds more interesting the more you respond though!

I see.. makes sense. Any possibility of usb c or qmk instead ?

Is the idea that the tray-mount screws pull the plate down into the gasket?

Some photos I've seen have traditional tray mount standoffs (one difrectly in the middle of the plate), but the PVD sample pictured here only has them along the edges -- which will the final have?

EDIT: TBH I'm also disappointed by the inclusions of switch top openings and ISO support, both have caused annoying switch alignment issues for me in the past. Previous TGR boards didn't do switch top openings, why now?

Ah didn't see the extra column, you're right.

Would love to hear reasoning why a center standoff would feel any better than a standard tray mount. Seems very limiting to flex.
