After TX series with full aluminum housing and some layouts with PC housing, we are excited to tap into the acrylic world with our new keyboard series! Code name: EO. Fun fact: it is kin25's nickname in real life.
The first of (hopefully) many more to come in this series is the TKL layout which (almost) everyone loves.
Featuring the aluminum top and acrylic bottom, each kit will include top and bottom housing, aluminum plate, suo PCB (new version!), TX cable and TX bag.
The two major changes for suo PCB are 20 RGB LED effects and USB-C (for all layout).
Plates will be available in different material as well:
- Acrylic plate: 5mm (recommended for Holy Panda since those are not cherry standard switches)
- Brass, aluminum and stainless steel: 1.5mm (Alu can also be a suitable choice for Holy Panda)
- FR4: 1.6mm
Six colors are expected to be offered: Black, grey, silver, gold, red and white. Acrylic top may or may not happen we do not know yet.
Sandwich mount style.
Besides, there will also be clear acrylic model which is called Crystal version!
Expected international pricing for both versions: $200/kit + shipping from Korea.
- Aluminum top
- Plate: aluminum/acrylic/stainless steel
- suo PCB (new version) (USB-C) - non-hotswappable
- Acrylic weight
- TX cable
- TX bag
Other options that will cost extra:
- Exchange to brass plate: $20
- Extra brass plate: $50
- Exchange to brass weight: $50
- Extra PCB (+$TBD)
Tentative preorder schedule is on February 16th.
A few questions:
1. Will the brass weight be pvd coated, or sandblasted and then clear coated?
2. What will the acrylic 5mm plate look like? Will it be frosted or clear?
3. Do you have any estimate of the weight of the board with and without the brass weight?
Thanks! I’m seriously considering this.
Would be great if a crystal top is offered too! Having tops in other colors kinda mismatch the case. Just my opinion!
@Husam: The page has not been up yet.
I am unable to find the EU version being sold on https://mykeyboard.eu/ . I’m in the UK and its currently 16th 22:11, on this website it says all the GB are sold out (only in a few minutes). Have they just not updated the EU version until its actually 17th
Why not offer a Crystal top?
