Hi all,

The MOQ has been met for the Pink RosÚlios (Silent Linear) and will be open on ZealPC on February 1. The GB will be open from February 1 - 14, 2019 and production will start February 15. The link to the GB is here: https://zealpc.net/products/roselios.

The samples have already been made and are on the way to Zeal. He will be providing pictures of two of the sample had had made (189C and 1765C).

I've been in contact with Zeal regarding running a limited buy for a recolored Healio. He has agreed to run a limited GB on his website for an alternative color if I was able to gather enough interest for 20,000 switches (MOQ). Currently, we're at 18,355 and almost to 20,000! Zeal had indicated once we hit 20k, he can start the GB on his website as soon as February 1.

We have narrowed down the colors to 189C and 1765C and he should be getting samples of these:




The price for a switch will be at Zeal's GB pricing which is $0.9/switch and the minimum order of switches you can purchase are 70 switches given the high MOQ. Switches are currently $1.2/switch on Zeal's website, so this GB is slightly cheaper.

The way this GB will work is similar to a GMK buy where payment will be accepted as of February 1 (if we start then) to speed things up and then we will decide on a color. As seen above, we're looking for a more milky pink, but will narrow it down to one after we receive the samples.

Please complete the following if you're interested:

Would've been so nice if this was for tealios or zealios. Just not a big fan of silent switches. GLW IC though! Looks very promising.

Orange color is pretty much the only reason I didn't buy Healios. Pink is my fav, so I'm in on this for sure. Would also love the hottest, most neon pink possible. That TKL above is gorgeous.

Once we reach MOQ, Zeal will have the GB started on his website and I will narrow down the colours to 2-3. He'll have samples sent to me and then we will decide on a colour and then move forward to production. He said we can start the GB as soon as February 1 if we reach 20k. I think this way will speed things up similar to a GMK groupbuy where we will do colour matching after payment.

...the minimum order of switches you can purchase are 70 switches given the high MOQ....

Out of curiosity, since I am still relatively new to this hobby compared to many who have been here for multiple years on, I was curious as to why there often does not seem to be an option that allows for you to buy a 'sample pack' of these switches instead of having to sink into the wallet to buy 70/90/110. The reason I am saying this, is that I and I'm sure a relative minority of the community are switch collectors who would love to have one of these for our collections, though don't see the justification in buying that many when I/we in reality only need maybe 1 or 2.

To the possible responses this conversation may garner:

1. Why don't you just buy them, take a couple, and then re-sell them on r/mm? -
While this is a completely valid option, the idea of growing my switch collection rather than my boards at the moment is because I'm in classes and not trying to spend *that* much money. Additionally, there is hassle with this option including listing, shipping, and hoping that someone purchases them. Albeit probably a safe route, I'm not sure I want to take the risk in sitting on switches I don't need out of collection's interest.

2. It's a pain for them to ship out orders of 10 where as 70/90/110 are easier to deal with from stock?
This is often a very valid point that gets brought up in regards to these switches. However, many sites including Zeal, Novelkeys, and KBDFans allow you to purchase switches they currently have in stock in quantities of 10, and several others have allowed me to purchase quantities of 10 in groupbuys (Linjar, YOK Red Pandas, GSUS Pandas, etc). If the one doing the purchasing is willing to pay the price, and hell maybe even a couple cents more a switch for a 'tester' option, as well as shipping, I see no reason why this shouldn't be offered more so than it is.

3. Why don't you just buy them off of r/mm?
This is typically what I/others have to resort to if they can't/don't want to meet this minimum order amount, especially if they are relatively high such as with the FEI Matcha Linears (MOQ was around 200/person I think)

4. Why don't you wait until they are on mechbox?
US Shipping  :-[ .

I don't mean to drum up any controversy here by any means, I was simply wondering why GBs are done in this fashion, when it could and probably does exclude a couple of orders from being placed from individuals who would have no other easy means of doing such. I love zeal, and I'd gladly support them all the way down if I had the money to go in for 110. That being said, I simply can't afford to/don't think its reasonable given my rationale for wanting to purchase.

I'm talking about specifically for this group buy how the minimum order quantity for individuals is 70 where as I/other switch collectors only need 10. The nature of the switch collection only dictates I need maybe 1-2 but I am willing to buy 10 since that seems to be the accepted minimum for the sites selling stock switches I listed in my previous responses (Zeal / Novelkeys / KBDFans). Additionally, since this is a limited drop, it's unlikely that Zeal will put these into the switch tester, and if they do, I would hate to have to buy an entire tester over ($40 shipped) for a singular switch.

I already have their other stuff by buying testers just like that :D! (For the record I do like the Healios, but I am much more a fan of the 78 g Zilents)

The main reason why it's a minimum order of 70 is because we're trying to meet a MOQ of 20,000 switches. If I leave it open ended to allow someone to only purchase a minimum of 10, it will be more difficult to meet the MOQ given this is a limited drop for a custom colour.
