Hello, can anyone share me the software download link please, thanks.
This keyboard arrived about a month earlier than the estimated ship date so props to Massdrop for that. :)
nadnerB
When did you receive it? Was it for the last drop?
glsse
It was from the last drop, I ordered it on August 17th and it arrived October 3nd. And the estimated ship date was Novmember 3rd.
what is the space size for this?
pakji
4.75 so it will be quite hard to replace.
I wish NiZ/Plum did ISO layout...
As always, you can get this on taobao for rougly the same price (saving about $10 on the rgb model). You don't need to wait half a year for this.

Actually he was asking for a link, and to get the link it really is literally enter atom66 in Taobao.
Wtf? Ching Chong? that hella racist dude.
Very disappointed in the layout on this board. 1u backspace just is not usable at all unless it's right above the Enter key.

Maybe this will help
  • Reprogrammable layout and macro recording

There is literally a 2u backspace that I'm assuming they have as a POS style 2u cap. It looks like it's included.
What would be more tactile, this kb, Nano75 35g or Nano75 45g ?
CreatorJSA
the 45
If the model does not have rgb, how long does it take to charge once?
$89.00 for electro-capacitive programmable keyboard with dampened MX-compatible sliders and thick PBT keycaps. That's insane. Giving HHKB makeover to get something similar would end up in spending ~$600.
I don't like the layout so I'll skip it but definetly interested in the same thing but regular 61 key version or collaboration with Vortex and making Pok3r with these switches. That would've been killer.

Afaik all of the models have them. I'm currently using the 75 and it has them and it is amazing!

There's a minute difference in feel that if you can tell the difference then you can tell which one you like better. Topre has a very VERY distinct feel that others really replicate, but don't quite match. But once you get into different sliders, domes, and springs, then really the only thing you're choosing from the start is your beginning experience, and the case's manufacturer. Some would pay extra for it.
I've done a lot of topre/electro capacitve considering. Though I think I'll pass on any option until I am able to afford an hhkb 2 pro type-s jp in beige, then I think I'm going to be fine without them.
is there any information on the battery? i would like to know what the average battery life is between charges with or without leds on
Wondering if this is BT4.0...
Also, the wireless picture looks like the keys are darker... is that just the lighting or are the keys less washed out grey on the different version for some reason?
TaeKeyboards on YouTube posted a very comprehensive review of this board earlier today: https://youtu.be/-1vwM_PBqck
He touches on default layers, software, keycap sizing, bluetooth, backlighting, build quality and internals, and, of course, the switches.
Any word on what bluetooth version is supported or what latencies over bluetooth are like with this? I've been scanning over this (and the official Plum page, and reddit) and can't see to find it, unless I've just overlooked it somehow.
I do love my Plum Nano 75, it's my main travel keyboard for when I need to do any serious typing on my Surface Pro. Dropping the F keys would be a nice portability gain.
Please offer the full-size version on here! I have been waiting for months for it to drop and will be in on day one once it hits.
This layout is so strange

I have the Nano 75 (with 45g domes) and I use it with my iPad every day. It is a good little keyboard to be sure, but I always wished Plum would come out with a normal 61-key version of it. Looks like we got this instead, which is very disappointing. The standard 61-key layout is a proven layout with a far larger potential customer base than a bizarre layout like this. I guess I will just have to stick with my Nano 75s.
now in need of cash for keebs o.O
Any details on the Bluetooth version's battery - capacity in mAh and estimated battery life?
How does the up arrow / shift key work? Does it act as the up arrow when pressed quickly and the shift key when held?

in progress!

I like your idea better. Activate shift when it's held and make it an up arrow when tapped. Having to use a modifier key to get an up arrow would be a killer for me. Make them all use a modifier or none of them. It's just too award to require a modifier for just one direction... not that I use the arrow keys much anyway. As @Makami mentioned, some people like to do IJKL as their arrows. I do that and I don't even have a compact keyboard. It's just so much more efficient to not have to move my hand to the arrow keys to move the cursor around. When I do use the dedicated arrow keys, I'd be screaming bloody murder if I kept getting reminded to hit the modifier key on moving up when I'd press and nothing happened.
what's the purpose of the backspace keycap in the pic with all of what's included ?

Supposedly the Varmilo and leopolds come out of the same factory. But I suspect that's not entirely accurate. I have the old FC660M (made in China) in mx clears and it is reasonably well built. No major twist or warp at least. But only other varmilo I have is the numpad which feels that little bit flimsy. But yeah, sample size of 1. So grain of salt and all.
The new FC660m are made in Taiwan now so I would hope they're better. The sound dampening mat is also included now, so that saves some effort too. It's slightly echoy without it. Might be worth the effort to find one to try since it seems to sastify all your wants.
Deadsea
You're totally right, it was a sample size of 1, funny today I see a VA87M is on Drop for a really good price, lol.
dumb question- Bluetooth version can still be used over USB?
desdinova
yes
Does anybody know if the PCB is compatible with any other cases?
Username931235324
I do own a Plum, not this one, and a Noppoo, which seems to be a sibling of Plum. They're both different than other (Cherry) pcbs, no srews to secure to the bottom of the case. Without the upper part of the case the pcb would simply fall out of the case, the upper part secures the pcb. Most cases for 60% mks, i'm aware off, are only 1 part cases with screws needed to secure the pcb. Of course, i don't know all cases given!
I have this board and LOVE it (yes, even with 35g). Only complaints: The 4.75u spacebar is weird and limits keycap options. If this board were a standard 60% it would be _perfect_. Otherwise awesome.
Ugh, that crooked Enter keycap... : (
orcinus
asking creative team for a quick fix - good catch
The description says it ships with extra springs. The manufacturers site has the option of 10g or 20g springs... it'd be nice if the product description could be updated to say what size those are.

i can look into this
H2Whoah
the springs come in 10g and 20g, about 20 pcs each.
Man this loadout was soooo close to being desirable for work. I really wish this was 65%.
very nonstandard bottom row throws me off quite a bit.
How programmable is this? Are there any limitations with changing any of the bottom row keys?
Any reviews on how this might turn out with a dome swap? How smooth will they feel after the collapse?
I do love this layout, but 35g is too light for me.

I now have the Plum87 w/ the optional springs installed and Jessica GMK Plum keycaps sitting next to the HHKB. The Plum represents itself very well, the action is slightly lighter, but not by much. The springs give the Plum a solid boost from 35g, but still just a bit shy of the HHKB's 45g. The Plum actually has a lower pitch thunk and is a bit quieter than the HHKB. The HHKB has a bit of that higher pitched clack that you get with Cherry switches.
Now that I finally have an HHKB Pro 2 on my desk, I'm still very impressed with the quality of the Plum keyboards and their EC switches. .. especially for the price.
mrvco
Thanks for the update! That is definitely good to know.
Groundhog Day,
35g domes just don't want to grow up to become 45g or 55g ... domes. Some folks just don't seem to listen, people have expressed their interest in other domes countless times.
Edit: To be more specific, not asking to remove 35g, just for adding options for heavier domes!

The response was fine up until the last passive aggressive part :P

Agreed :)
