This was my mech and it's an absolute steal at this price. I got mine with blues and while that combo is a bit noisy, it's one of the most pleasurable typing experiences in existence. I paid $20 more than the price shown here and would happily pay that much again.
If you're on the fence, get this board.
Mech Keyboard Newb... how does the 6 port DIP switch work?
NextGen62
Essentially, different combinations of switch positions changes where modifier keys are. It's shipped the way windows computers usually work, so if, for example, you want it to be laid out like a mac keyboard (where the OS key is next to the space bar) you can adjust the DIPs. There's a manual that comes with the board that explains how to do it.
I bought one of these with the last drop. It seems compatible with all my pok3r accessories and the screws look like they would fit a pok3r after market case. I haven't tried, but everything appears to be in the same place. Really like this keyboard.
Treponim
Yes, V60 plate can fit in Poker style after market case.
the anne pro is terrible imo but I think it will be better than this. I would just get a readily available pok3r if I were you.

I bought one of these and it's actually awesome. It's no where near as base customizable as a pok3r, but it is nearly half price. i leave mine at work and reprogrammed the keys from the desktop to do all the things my pok3r does while leaving it comfortably at home.
Treponim
Ahhh I see! Well, I was just basing my opinion on the specs. I just thought that with the ABS caps and the plastic construction and all, it would inevitably be worse than the poker. Well, glad to hear your opinion. Thanks!
Will these be shipped to the uk?
Is there no escape key?
Shalakazaam
There are bindings on the front of the ~ key, that is used as escape.
SpencerHendren
Yes, `~ without ESC is printed on the front of the key, that's why I'm asking. On the 1 key, the 1 is actually printed on there along with its other functions.
the keyboard failed after two months and it was never solved, nor with its firmware ... a disappointment
Advice needed: This or Anne Pro as my first board, guys?

Like where? In Canada BTW
BattlePants
Any site with decent customer service. Amazon for example would be a good choice.
Do the qc issues with the matias boards carry over to these
Would love to see an ADDON option for a set of just caps so I could have both top printed and side printed.
Please attached wire if it is not wireless...
jedi5diah
A removable wire makes it so much easier to transport, which is a sellig point of 60% kb’s.
BattlePants
I think he meant that the pictures should show the cable connected, not an actual cable attached to the keyboard that you can't remove.
BUT if it was wireless, the title and description would've said so. If there is no word "wireless" anywhere, then it's not wireless.
I'm not a fan of Cherry mx-type switches, but within this general category, I like Gateron yellows, which for me are just the right weight, and their operation is smooth with no trace of grittiness.
This keyboard is really at a fantastic price, but I think I'm leaning more towards just getting an LED version of the board from MechanicalKeyboards.com although if the keyboard came with front printed keycaps I would consider it. My goal is still to have a backlit keyboard with laser etched front printed keycaps, which I think would look awesome, and I haven't seen it done before.
fuck these DIP switch setups, just spend a day contributing a profile to something like QMK and expose the MCU loader
how awesome would this be if I could just program it.
refactorized
They have the full programmable version of the V60 called V60 Type R : https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/v60_type_r
okidna
Nice, thanks!
though why even have two versions, I don't imagine programability adds a significant cost, maybe a very slightly more expensive mcu that does usb boot loading, but I would even be happy with exposed/exposable headers for programming over a serial connection.
Just feels senseless to me that any remotely customizable keyboard not offer some option for custom firmware .
Any chance of a PBT option in the future? The V60 layout is just perfect after you get used to it.
Does anyone know what font they use for the keycaps?
Berzerka
I was wondering this myself. It would have been nice if they had listed it in the specs.
this, or tada68 for my first mech?

isn't this a standard 60%?
BlueCrowned
Smaller.
This is a great little keyboard, but unfortunate timing because of the tada 68. Unless this is reverse psychology. In that case, well played MD, well played.

You can get a pretty good tester from mgsickler at https://www.novelkeys.xyz/product/25-slot-switch-tester/ just pick your switches. He also has Alps testers.
If you like clicky switches check out kailh box switch white, pale blue, Navy and Jade. You may be surprised.
yanfali
Interesting. I've never actually tried out their box switches. I'll see if I can get my hands on some.
For Discussion sake and curiosity.
Any opinions on why this over Anne Pro?

Ponoj
Fairly standard case. Anne Pro won't work with an metal case at all because of the bluetooth.
Ponoj
Nothing too big. I believe the options for switches are wider for the KBP v60, and the font looks far better. Other than that, none.
Anyway to get this in ISO?
BubblesInc
ISO version , please contact http://www.keyboardco.com/
I'm a VIM user. Is it possible to map Escape to other key such as Caps Lock?

I believe so.
Is the included cable USB to Mini USB-B? I'm wanting to buy a 5 meter cable to use with my setup where my desktop is far away. Would there be any complications using a longer cable?

Five meters! Are you using a big-screen TV as your monitor?
SamPittman
Around 2 meters away from my frame of reference I have a 34" AOC 3440x1440p monitor. I ended up getting a 4 meter cable since I need around 3 meters to connect to my PC, the excess helps prevent cable-pulling.
Hi! Does the Keyboard available in spanish layout?
Vitol
wonder if it's avaliable in french too (AZERTY...)
This or Pok3r?

for my money I prefer my V60 over my pok3r. I also prefer Gat switches over Cherry. I find Gat Blacks to be so smooth! and way nicer then cherry.. blacks.
Also cost wise the pok3r will run you 129-130 dollars.. with metal case... the v60 will run ya 75bucks... so there that to think about also.
Xyzac
The KBP v60 provides similar or same performance to the Pok3r for a cheaper price. The primary reason to choose the Pok3r would be for backlighting. So if its not important to you, get the KBP v60.
Aw man, I wanted the matias one to drop
Defenestration
I have the Matias Quite Linear from a previous drop and the keys feel rubber dome-ish. Go with the quiet clicks when they appear again.
oakromulo
I wanted the quiet clicks anyways, I like the tactile
Is this programmable I want a second keyboard that is set to be cyrlilic characters

Keep in mind the diy kits are extremely over priced. That is if I remember correctly.
Bkey
Depends. Tada68 dropped on massdrop for 99usd a month ago. Included an aluminum case and plate. Switches and keycaps were extra. Definitely entry level custom though and more expensive than a v60.
I want a white one :c
Hey guys. Got the wrong switch and already paid. Any chance I can send the 1 dollar and change my order?
Pomme123
You can edit your order in the transactions page. You're not charged for the drop until it is over, the payment is only pending right now
flobear
Just fixed it. Thanks mate. Your a champion.
The recent New Poker 2 drop was a lot better. 79$ for selection of MX switches, PBT keycaps instead of ABS, 3 programmable layers and all that for only 5$ more. No MX Clear/Zealios = still waiting for another Pok3r drop.
killyou
Yea I picked that one up but keycaps shouldn't be a factor your going to switch those out soon enough anyway.
Really this isn't a bad board maybe not the top 1% but top 10% is good enough for a first keeb.
anyone from Australia interested in this? contact me
