Just confirming I was able to connect even 20 meters apart from the computer (using a pc plate in my case). Took my laptop for a meeting earlier today in another building and restarted the laptop, auto-connected to BIOI G60 BLE. Dang, that was amazing.

Also, using Bluetooth has practically no lag at all. The VIA configurator was awesome too, IMO every customized keyboard should adopt the VIA software.

Hey, I submitted a form but haven't paid the invoice yet, and I would like to change my mind for some of the options on the board. Would it be possible to delete my current choices so I can submit a new form? Thanks.

Say one was to use this PCB in another case, would you be able to charge it with the main USB connector on the PCB, or does charging the battery only work when plugged into the other connector that is attached to the daughterboard? Or perhaps both connectors on the PCB charge the battery?

Any connector should charge the battery

Scott, correct me if I am wrong.

This PCB priced @ $42 is a steal.

Yes, the battery is charged by the USB port of the PCB, there is a Li-Po battery charging management chip on board. It can be used on other case but you have to find your way to install battery.

Yes, but it would only work if you source your own plate that supports split spacebar, furthermore you would be limited to the tray mount option. But it's possible!  :thumb:

This will be a good keyboard to actually see the difference between top and tray mount, granted everything else is kept the same. I'm looking forward to it.

Works with tray mount, if you need a top mounted plate, I can provide a custom plate in carbon fiber or PC

I should not get this plate though, correct? This will be my first 60%, I'm sure it's obvious to experienced builders, but the pic made it look like the plate is for case mount only and I'll need a DZ60 plate to use the pcb in my grid as a traymount?

If you're planning to tray mount your own PCB then you may use whichever universal GH60 compatible plate you want. The plates on offer in this GB are specifically for mounting to the top half of the case. Tray mount means that your PCB is secured to the bottom half of the case on threaded standoff posts.

Good. I hate making choices (especially when I don't have something in mind I'm trying to match) and this it my first real custom, but I love the lines of the G80 series and this thing is just adorable

I still can't decide between NCR grey and Everest white (beige) but I'm leaning toward NCR because I have OG beige boards, but no industrial grey ones

Haha, yes the g60 is tough in choices, Black CF looks dope with so many choices. So all safe there.

Yeah the g80 series is just a clean classic design. I really look forward to the g60! Talk about a perfect first custom choice ;)

Everest White is WHITE and not beige, so if it can help you make a choice, go with the NCR White, which should be a more toned down white/grey to match the old "beige"

Anybody know if this PCB would work?
https://kbdfans.cn/collections/60/products/dz60rgb-hot-swap-custom-keyboard-pcb

The layout works with the universal plate option, but I don't know if the kalih hotswaps sockets could interfere with the hight tolerance between the PCB and the traymounts. But your properly OK. I think OP mentioned he would change traymounts screw to m2.5 to have a little more space in there for HS PCBs.

Let's see when OP comes back from CNY, hopefully he can explain it more in detail  ^-^
