Too bad this isn't a kit, since it's almost like a cheaper k-type.
Whats the point of buying here when it's already on amazon...

Wait 3 months to save 6 whole dollars!
Stagione
Got damn! I'm practically losing money not buying this!
Anyone know if this board supports custom firmware or QMK support?
Can you disable windows key?
mmmike
Yes, i have one purchased from amazon. you can disable windows key with Fn+f12

Thanks - I just ordered from amazon since it's only $10 more and I can get it now instead of January 2018 :o
Mine is on the way from the last drop. I am so looking forward to this keyboard!!
Is it true that this is considered like the "budget" k-type or is it all hype?

Just compare the K-Type specs and you'll be able to answer this.
K-Type is programmable, swappable switches, synchronous RGB on keys and back plate, detachable USB-C, and comes with the Halo switch if you oped for it.
I assume it's considered a budget version based on looks and the frame lighting, but it depends on what you wanted out of the board. If the features listed aren't important then yes, this would definitely serve as a budget K-Type aesthetically.

Its a waste becz you can buy it on ebay aliexpress amazon for like 6 dollars more with rgb effects. and you dont have to wait 3 month
Looks great, but I'm bummed that zealio switch isn't offered. I'm waiting for my I:C whitefox with halo-clone from KS and MD Vortex Race 3 with cherry brown. All I need now is a 65%-tkl board with zealio.
The budget k-type is back!

well a 60% is basically standard minus the F row and numpad, so you just need like alphas and base mods for the current Legacy DSA. actually cheaper than TKL!
BlueCrowned
It depends on some 60s layout. I have a friend that has a weird custom where one of the shift keys has an odd shape and also double space bars. But I’m happy with my TKL, Preonic, and Infinity Ergodox and my upcoming numpad so I’m set. Dressing them all is costly. So there’s only special keycaps sets where I’ll go full blown if they ever come out again....
"This is one of the most requested options from the TKL Mechanical Keyboards poll created by a community member"
Uh, it doesn't even seem to be on the list
If you let Taekeyboards(youtube) review this board I assure you you will get more sales.
What is the difference between the Ganss GS and GK keyboards?
For Canadians, you can get it in mx red switches on Amazon for $150 CAD shipped within a day. Massdrop is around $154 CAD shipped in Oct.
For Americans, mx brown version is $10 more on Amazon to get it within a week
If it only had a detachable cable.... ):
Why is it 109.99 when it doesn't have individual lighting and a non-removable usb cable? Even thought it looks sleek imo it should be about 60-80 bucks .
kds_OW
lol there's literally a drop right now for a 60% *PCB* that's more expensive than this entire board. (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/zealpc-r2-zeal60-rgb-led-pcb)
Genuinely curious if there's an available TLK with backlighting and RGB underlighting for $60-$80. (Because I'd buy it)
If you do care about the usb cable, from the pictures it's not soldered on, it should be trivial to swap if the case is easy to open.
Is USB detachable?

Well... that's gonna be a deal breaker for me.
MillerReid
Totally understand. What's worse is that the cable is white so it stands out.... But still love the board :p
just out of interest in general. Can you convert an ANSI keyboard with a bit of soldering to an ISO, or more specifically is it possible with this one?
Rikidere
I am not really too sure but I do not think it's possible for this board. For custom boards it is possible of course depends on pcb and plate
Rikidere
You would have to get really lucky, both with the construction of the board, and with your rework. Basically, I think when you write "a bit of soldering", you mean "re-position one or more keys to match ISO". You will have to be lucky that nothing else is in the way, and you will have to probably cut some pins and use some wires to make the electrical connections. Even in that case, you are going to have one or more keys that are mounted using different mechanics than all the other keys. Those keys are very probably going to feel different and possibly be at the wrong height.
I give it a low chance of success. However, it is an interesting question.
is this only available on white keycaps and housing? cant we change to black keycaps?
imbasaurus
This only came out with white keycaps. I believe the top plate did come out in several colors but it seems like the drop is for the default colors
imbasaurus
Only in white keycaps/silver housing this time. We are working closely with Ganss on getting more keycap/case options for future drops!
Is it possible to turn the lights off or is this an always on gay pride edition?

You can turn it off and there are modes. It can be a single color, 2 colors, 3, or some effects
LFP221
gay edition is best edition

Your efforts are still appreciated, haha
I using one of this atm, the case properbly frosted -> you won't see the invidual LED -> beautiful underglow. The invidual switched LED is only Icy blue while the underglow is fully RGB. No programing or detachable cable though

nope they are not
bipolarbear528
Thanks guys. I think I'll just mod the keyboard I already have then.
is it programmable ?
adrianmak
Afaik, no.
If you want this board now, it is the same price on mechanicalkeyboards.com however only browns, blues, and blacks in stock.
Is this compatible with OSX?
Katfa
Yes
This is beautiful. :o
The back light is just Ice blue. The underglow is RGB.
I am using this board right now and it's still one of my favorite boards. Excellent for the price!

Unfortunately no. But it's not really expected out of a TKL. Not many tkls can be programmed compared to 65%s and smaller.
Qade
I figured as much, but just wanted to ask. :-) Thanks!
k-type on a budget
dawd
The pictures and descriptions do seem quite the same... :)
Why no white key LED option?
wastelander
Perhaps next time! we'll def let Ganss know :D
Is this the GK-87 Pro or a different version? If so, what are the differences?
iNcontroL
It's the same^^
Lemme make sure I got this right. The backlighting for the keys is just a medium blue, locked in. And the underglow is just a rotating rainbow that can't be set?
Checking because it looks really cool. But I don't need a blue accented rainbow on my desk.
