Glad to see that V2s are already shipping! I thought that the original shipping date wasn't until December, but now I can get started on my next build. ^_^

If its any consolation, I did contact someone over at https://zealpc.net/pages/contact-us and received a response back almost instantly from a very nice guy named Henry. I asked when their drop was going to be closing on their own site, and he stated
" We don't have a fixed closing date per se, but do plan on placing a bulk order with our manufacturer around mid October in order to secure a time slot for production. "
I just got an update from MD about the issue.

Props to them for acknowledging the issue and owning up! I can appreciate that very much. It is good to see that they didn't just ship out V1s and claim that they were V2, or require for the original shipment to be returned before we could be sent the V2s.
Is it weird that I just got a tracking number for this drop even though its not supposed to ship until December??

This was a salty drop.. charging more then from the supplier...

You're a bit confused friend, I paid $106.99 WITHOUT my $20 discount. So the mark up over Zeal's site is like $7 for 110. switches. As I explained though, I want DHL shipping, which is $30 via Zeal but only $8.50 via Massdrop.
steveowashere
Alright got it mixed up. Still just frustrating with the markup instead of the "drop".. I will let the itch go away and look forward to a smooth zilent type.. :)
What's the benefit of buying these here rather than from zelapc? Including shipping to Australia it's cheaper from zeal and I can choose the amount in batches of 10s. I don't get why this is even on massdrop?
linnes
For USA, it's $7.50 cheaper for 110.
Massdrop: 86.99 + 3.75 shipping vs ZealPC: 82.50 + 15.00 shipping
Does it work on my Corsair K70 RGB?
ZhenHong
You'll need to desolderer the swtiches, but yes it'll work.
What's the best method for breaking off the PCB mount guide pins? Also, the lack of a 90 key option may kill this for me.

Flush cutters all the way - plus you can use it for your Gunpla!
Keth
flush cutters for sure, I just want to add that you should watch a video. Like most things keyboard related its super simple
Did the estimated ship date change? I could have sworn it was November 12...
zzzaacchh
yea i saw November when the drop was posted.

Man, they delayed it before the drop even closed...
What does it mean to "have a V2", exactly?
Load 3 more comments
Ah I see. It'd be nice to get it in writing, rather than having it so poorly worded that there's some wiggle room.
Cointoss
Zealpc.net will have the group buy announcement on their site soon, so they will probably have better info regarding the changes.
@Zeal , I've noticed that people recommend lubing the Zilents, on that premise, would V2 not need lube?

Will this buy or the V2 purchase from your site ship faster?
diyl
Both will ship around the same time.
Zilents 65g or 67g?
Load 1 more comment
lol what does that mean?
PartialFrontal
IIRC the bump is the same on all of them, it's only the spring weight that is the difference. I have a tester with all 4 and those two feel like they have more tactility to them despite having the same leaf. Bear in mind these are V1 so that could change with the new version.
Any plans on releasing a pom housing version to compete with holy pandas and the upcoming cream switches?
:clap: IF :clap: YOU :clap: DONT :clap: CLICK :clap: I DONT :clap: WANT :clap: YOUR :clap: SWITCH :clap:
Can someone enlighten me with these switches. I Am familiar with Cherry's but not Zealios etc.
I am a fan of Browns, and I like clears as well but is there a happy medium between the 2 with one of these switch types? Also if they're all tacticle what are Zilents like?

Your easiest medium would be to go for the mod L or M switches https://www.originativeco.com/products/mod-switch
The zilent has like 90% of the tactility and feels slightly "mushy" at the bottom out due to the rubber. This is the compromise for the design that brings you the more silent aspect.
diyl
interesting, thanks!
Hey @Zeal, are there any pictures of the new stem mould?
Xp3r10n
I have an early sample version, but would prefer to wait for final version before snapping macro shots. I'll consider uploading it on my site if needed. I can say it is much bigger than the v1 Zealios.
You can buy a 90 pack of Zealios switches off of KBD fans for around the same price and without the wait I'm assuming...

sukebe
That's true, except that ones sold in KBDfans are V1 Zealios (not saying that it's bad, just different)
Can @Zeal confirm if V2 Zealios is different from R11 available from zealpc.net ?
Load 20 more comments
Are these the same as the R11's offered on your website? If not, where is the huge cost difference coming from?
Keth
It's not the same, we're clearing out our remaining R11 switches. A V2 listing will be posted soon.
The price differences comes down to shipping and delivery speed. If you want more flexibility in switch options and quantities, you could wait for our buy to go live.
For someone whose world is entirely composed of cherry brown switches, should I be looking at the 62g zealio switches or something heavier?
Load 4 more comments
All I want in life is an MX Clear RGB, and these Zelios 76g look close. But I've heard bad things about their QC.
Battery
Can't say I have used Cherry Brown, but I am typing these on Kailh brown and I really like these switches. I have a switch tester for Zealios. They are different switches. 62g is very light. I just ordered the 67g myself right now, but I would say feeling wise the 65g is closer to Kailh Browns. Again, MX brown might be different again.
I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question, but hopefully someone can help me out.
Can you use these switches on a hotswap PCB?

You'll need to remove these 2 plastic prongs to make them compatible with the CTRL or ALT keyboards!

Wow. That picture helped me immensely. I'm going to pick some up and just snip those little legs off for my board. I really appreciate it!
So where's the price drop, I don't see it anywhere.
zzzaacchh
Ahhhhh, thank you.
This does not seem like a discount? I can order zilents right now from Zeal's website -- 110 count for something like 10 dollars less than this drop?! C'mon guys.

The V2 switches are supposed to be more tactile, so a more noticeable bump when pressed. I think that's the only difference.
Whale of a deal! I could get 4 sets of switches for the prices of these.....
So, I notice that zilents are 76.99+shipping.
On zeal's website, the switch is $.90 which would be $63+shipping.
Am I getting this wrong?

These are a newer, more tactile version. They're not out yet.
Supermitsuba
Zeals website has a 4.5% charge and then $15 shipping in the US. I just did the math and 70 zilents are 1 dollar cheaper here.
Not much but these are also two different products, zeals website is the V1's
70 xealios saves like $10 tho here
Is the V2 from this drop the same as R11 Group Buy from ZealPC?

Knxwledge
I'm guessing the V2 design is technically R12 (redesigned as stated on this drop), considering the R11 switches stated they'd ship in June. However, it's all speculation until we hear from Zeal about these. I'm guessing he'll post something about it either here, or on Reddit. I'm sure someone has pinged him at this point.
I'm curious myself. I'm sitting on R11 Zilents unused for a long-gestating project, and if they redesigned the stems for more tactility I'd probably want to snag the redesigned V2 (R12) anyway.
EELAmbiense
The V2 is a newer version, supposedly more tactile, they should be opening the GB on zealpc.net soon, but they said it has a similar fulfillment time frame as this drop.
witch one is the most tactile?

They did. Box Royals are fantastic; have a board of those and a board of R9 78g. Prefer the Royals. But with R12, who knows.
Koatl
Same here, have BOX Royals as well so this latest Group Buy for added 'Tactility' caught my attention and wallet.
Are these compatible with the ALT keyboard?
vrapan
yes
+ $25 in customs/import fees. awesome. i'm done with massdrop.
ronmacdon
What does that have to do with Massdrop? lmao
Posted 7th July with DHL, still not arrived (UK)...
Coming from Cherry MX Red Silents, has anyone experienced the Zilents? Obviously the MX Red Silents are linear, so curious how the tactile Zilents might feel? Anyone gone from one to the other?
atomicus
They feel closest to Topres actually for me. They're very tactile, but still smooth.
atomicus
Using MX Silent Red occasionally with Topres and just moved to BOX Navies. I think my fingers are developing alien muscles. Jokes apart, even I would want to try out the Zilents but don't have any hot-swappable switches offering boards right now.
Even with massdrops $3.75 shipping, it is still cheaper for me to purchase from ZealPC with his $15 one day shipping. For 110x switches: ZealPC $101.21 Massdrop $104.81, out the door. That being said, if I commit at $56.99 on Massdrop it will cost only $97 for 110x switches... However I would probably still pay $4 extra to Zeal for one day shipping and the better feeling of buying from the man himself. Anyone looking for the best deal though, should absolutely commit at $56.99 on here, assuming your shipping is not higher than $5.
wowremy
Came to confirm this as well. I did the math on my own too and wasn't thinking that there was too much incentive to go MD versus ZealPC. Thanks for the confirmation. Cheers!
I'll just leave this here: https://www.1upkeyboards.com/shop/switches/zealio-switch-packs/
spend an extra $2 get them this lifetime.
mechman
Better yet: https://kbdfans.cn/collections/zealios-switches/products/zealio-swtich-tactile
Spend $4.50 less than the commit price, use KBDFans easily find-able coupon code to get a further $2 off and shipping is free.
So sad I guess these cant be used on gk64 :(
Alcacer
I believe these should fit just fine on a gk64.
Alcacer
Yes, you can. Buy a pair of flush cutters.
