One ugly keyboard :x
Few questions before I commit.
1) Does the Aviator connect with a USB or PS2 cable?.
2)There seems to be no difference between the price of a ten-keyless, or full size. Is that correct?.
3) The Fender Amp jewels are usually configurable. Are they blue for this drop?.
4) Lastly, the option for painted stems adds no additional cost at checkout. Is this correct?. Thanks

Last question. Is there no choice of font for the keys?. Their site offers four types.

Unfortunately for this drop we are not offering any other fonts.
Hey guys, we spoke to Datamancer and they said they will actually be able to ship out earlier than expected on this drop.

I have adjusted the fulfillment time accordingly.
Exciting news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.

We have some good news to share with everyone. Our vendor has reached out to provide us with an update on the status of production. Production is moving along very well, and the vendor is confident that they will be able to easily ship before the estimated ship date of 10/12.

Expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 9/14 or sooner if something comes up.
Great news group! We placed the order for the The Aviator Keyboard shortly after the drop ended.

Our vendor will be preparing it for shipment.

The moment we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you all with updated information.

Expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 8/19 or sooner if something comes up.
plz I need this in my life
That looks so awesome!
I think the biggest detractor for me on this keyboard is the lack of proper stabilized keys; instead of a full shift or enter key you just get a little nub. At this price point I feel that there's no reason why they can't have a wire stab like the spacebar.
Guys, keep in mind the market for the keyboard and the fact that DM is a small company. Some of the audience is people who can afford expensive things and want to show that fact, thus allowing markup. It is an expensive keyboard to make (from what I've seen and read) and needs a price tag that allows a profit.
I'm a Node.JS guru living in SoMa, but in my off time I enjoy doing some PC Gaming and discussing ethics in Gaming journalism, online. For that won't accept anything less than the best mechanical keyboard.

It definitely had a hefty cost with its MSRP of $725, but every time I sit down in my Aeron (bought new, natch) to play the Star Citizen Dogfighting Module or write my daily anti-SJW activism tweets on my overclocked, 144hz, 4K monitor, and I lay my fingers on these premium Cherry MX Blues and feel their click (more satisfying than any other keyboard on the market), I am content.

Someone would have to blow more than my sarcasm meter to get me to spend $500+ on a keyboard. j/k LOL :)

Very detailed and helpful review indeed, I'd very much like to know more about your OC'd 4K 144hz monitor please.
pay me $574.98 and i'll mail you an old typewriter and do something useful with the rest of the money
These switch options are not for the retro-minded enthusiasts, but for weakly toddlers and fans of laptop keyboards! Wher' da clears, da greens? Flexibility should be entangled with a price tag like that.
I see a lot of nerdy shit on here, honestly I can't complain, I'm a huge nerd myself.

However, this gruesome keyboard really takes the cake. Does it come with a collection of fedoras to wear whilst using it?
Hmmm. Gorgeous keyboard, or it would be, were it not for the blue on the Cherry switches.

Regarding comment 9 on page 1 Datamancer might even paint it pink if you ask nice.
