Hmm, I will wait for WASD Code then...
...or you could pay $59 for a GMMK whereby you can customize it with w/e switch and keycap you want. What's the benefit for this one that excels over that?

As far as the GMMK, I guess that mainly depends on how you have it set up. My GMMK is quiet, but I use modded switches (Gateron yellows, with heavy springs, lubed and quieted with aquarium sealant). Keycaps are PBT doubleshot. On the stabs I agree. I just ordered some genuine cherry stabs to hit this board. I can't speak to a comparison with the Varmilo. Sounds like a nice board, but I do find the GMMK a nicely built solid board.

Yeah, it's the stabs that undermine the GMMK. Cherry stabs can help it. Some people use foam to dampen the interior of the GMMK to make it sound less hollow. Sounds like an interesting idea. I've used a VA87, and it's close to my ideal of a mechanical keyboard. It uses normal materials like ABS plastic, but uses them well. The stabilizers are a cut above, and the board doesn't sound hollow. So, out of the box, it's better in those respects than many off-the-shelf keyboards. Varmilo-profile keys are also very good, close to what Leopold keyboards use. Varmilo uses SS2 profile, which is very similar to Cherry [but perhaps slightly taller on one of the rows]. This is a very ergonomic profile for me. I put a set from Varmilo's "Summer Trilogy" on the VA87, and it felt milky smooth. So out-of-the-box, with Varmilo, you get great stabs, solid feel, and SS2-profile PBT dye-sub keycaps. The LEDs are positioned correctly for Cherry-profile keycaps, which work and feel great. And they seem to be using quality MX switches, too.
Am I the only one who didn't receive this yet since the first drop? It's been about a month since the shipping started, but mine is still in Avenel, US.

It's a shame this isn't offered in Clears or it would be an instant buy for me.
Is it possible to completely switch off the LED lights?

Yes
Anyone knows where to buy Varmillo black PBT keycaps ?
solwind
Check out aliexpress. There's plenty of front printed PBT keycaps for around $30.
Does anyone who grabbed this last time feel kind enough to write a review? Curious to see how this holds up.

I've got a Va 108, the build quality is fine, backlighting is ok but very basic ( fine for me as im not a stickler). The keycaps and case themselves feel really, really good. Comes with a very basic USB a to USB mini B connector. ( not USB C ) The layout and way the keys are angled feel great when the keyboard is both down and standing up on the two rear foldable plastic feet. But I think when its upright its slightly to sharp of a angle to use for long periods at a time. Has some nice but simple functions to change Blacklight strength and lock windows key for gaming and what not. My only gripe is that there is audible PING when bottoming out certain keys this may bother some greatly and it is even more noticeable when the keyboard is not flat on the desk. Otherall its a great keyboard with some great build quality and I love typing on it. I have not regretted getting it. Its still my daily driver as of now as the keycaps feel great.  I have the Varmilo VA108M Panda Keyboard with blue switches

I own the VA87MR and it's been a good keyboard for me. Thicc and heavy steal backplate with good keycaps. It's my daily for 2 or 3 years now and I haven't had any problems with it so far.
Anyone with a Mac can confirm it works flawlessly, please? :)

Thanks. Does it have some kind of mode switch to remap Alt / Command or do you use Karabiner?

These is the manual http://i.imgur.com/nNyrDBj.jpg
Does anyone know if this has a Micro or USB-C connector?
Yoshimii
I believe it's usb-c.
Yoshimii
If it is the same as the other VA87ms, then it's mini-B.
I understand there's mac support for this, but has anyone been able to find the corresponding mac keycaps for this board?
Cuvelia
varmilo sells them on their site. Its nearly same price as this drop to just order kayboard there...
ETA when this will be available again? What is the starting price?
eldoink

thanks for posting, i was wondering. glad i saw it before ordering!
I just got a notification that mine has shipped!😊👍 Is it wishful thinking that I'll get it in time for Christmas?
That white on black is beautiful. How many more requests till this drop is available?
macmiles
It just finished about two weeks ago
In case of the MX Black switch, is it the new one?
Can we get a picture with the backlight?

It's more blue-ish than I thought it would be, but still. It's pretty darn cool.
(Edited)
In my experience, Varmilo boards come with really satisfying stabs.
Erak606
yup
Hello, does it come with cable, if so which one / type ?
Max_Pecas
Mine came with a 1 meter ish USB a to MIni usb B connector
ISO Esp option and I'm sold, please.
It says blue LED, can we get a picture of the keyboard with the light on? Thanks.
Maxyusc
https://goo.gl/images/AVeHau This could be the same color.
Hi! Can this be shipped to Mexico? Thanks.
Can this be shipped to Mexico? Cheers!
It would be nice to see an actual picture of the backlighting instead of it just being mentioned. Also, are most keebs NOT supportive of Macs?
spraynardKrug
Why not?
What does Dye-subbed PBT keycaps and Laser-engraved side printing mean? Isn't this a contradiction? Also what does PBT keycaps and ABS mean, it should be either PBT or ABS, shouldn't it?
Gabe433
Yes, this needs to be clarified.
Gabe433
abs case pbt keycaps :)
I would be interested if ISO layout would be supported along with more Cherry switches (for me MX Clear).
Some questions regarding this keyboard:
  • USB-type?
  • mac support?
Thanks!
Urameshi
mini usb yes mac
XiK
Could you elaborate on Mac support, please? :) Does everything work? Thanks!
