For anyone interested in a more in-depth review, Barnacules Nerdgasm put out a pretty thorough video of the Kineses Freestyle Edge gaming keyboard a little while back. This Pro version seems to be the same board just pre-configured. Check it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=1415s&v=TconD669TjI

I might actually check the balance on my credit card for this.
it seems like different height of tent between  VIP3 Pro Kit and  V3 Pro Kit. right?

EDIT: nvm, i found it on the site, it does require the respective tenting for palms and without. so i need both the VIP3 pro kit and the V3 pro kit if i want to be able to tent with or without the wrist wrests?

Usually people prefer one tenting configuration or the other. If you would like to have the option to tent both with and without palm supports then, yes, you would need to purchase both the V3 Pro and VIP3 Pro since the "v-lifters" have different mounting points.
if only the switches are hot swap-able...

If you want different switches, check out the Kinesis Freestyle Edge. It's basically the same thing but you can pick brown blue and red Cherry MX switches i believe. PLus it has blue LEDs to light your keys if you're in to that sorta thing. I love mine.

The main reason is that I want to easily replace the switches easily without having to desolder the switches from the board (which is very taxing). Anyway, thanks for your input. It's nice to know there is other option :)
These guys make great keyboards. I have an Advantage that is still going strong after 10 years. Speaking of which, I would love to see an Advantage drop.
Add-on prices in the picture captions don't match the descriptions / checkout, e.g. $28 for the VIP3 pro kit in the captions, vs $35 elsewhere. Would be nice if the lower price were the correct price.

Agreed, was about to order but would like to hear an answer on this first.
Why no Halo switch option? I thought this was a place for keyboard enthusiasts. :)

Halo switches aren't exactly quiet, and this board is marketed as a quiet board, just my guess
Are those 3.5u spacebars? Looks like a good deal overall, but you'll literally never be able to put replacement keycaps on it.

The white purple set is bought from Massdrop: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/tai-hao-triple-play-abs-doubleshot-keycap-sets?utm_source=linkshare&referer=4GC2TL You can get the rest on Aliexpress and or wasdkeyboard; Searching on AliExpress for keyword like Taihao will give you a bunch of option.

Thank you!
I have the tenting kit (used on my ergodox) and I can't recommend it enough; if you're going for this keyboard, get the tenting kit.

The VIP3 pro kit.
The VIP3 Pro kit comes with the palm pads, whereas the V3 Pro kit does not (they're both tenting options). I recommend getting the VIP3 Pro kit because the pal pads make using the KB soooo much more comfortable. Just be aware, the tenting hardware in the VIP3 Pro requires you use the palm pads so you can't change your mind .
It's just so ugly that I feel like it needs to be cheaper.

Ugh just bought this on another site a week ago. Good keyboard if you need split/ergo, but I'd recommend getting the tenting kit
Very interested. anybody have a reason to the contrary?

And it has blue LED lighting for the keys.
Both the Freestyle Edge and Pro are 100% programmable and use the same SmartSet Programming Engine. The Pro has the 8 hotkeys pre-configured but you can assign any key action or macro to any of the 95 full-size keys.
Excuse me but wtf

I love ergo boards and I would really like so see something like an Ergodox EZ on Massdrop. But this one...? This one is just... freak?

Fair enough. I was jkin anyways. It's a bit weirder than other ergo boards. And yessssss, we need Massdrop to drop an Ergodox!
