Hi, can we get an update about the switch? I understand that shipping delays are sometimes inevitable, but lapses in communication should not be. At least let us know what is going on, and when we should expect the switches?

Hi, I apologize for the delayed shipment. We were waiting on one more shipment to come in to complete packing MD's order yesterday afternoon. It will be packed and shipped out today (Tuesday) to Massdrop.
Zeal
Thanks for the update!
(Edited)
So the V2 bump starts right at the top, which is a big departure from V1 and does not compare to Holy Panda at all. To be honest I feel like I got scammed.

Are they satisfying enough to daily drive? And does the tactility fade? Im content with my v1s but if the v2s are better.... I might have to do some makeovers
diyl
I think they are very satisfying, I will be using them daily. They are similar to, but better feeling than box royals, with a longer rounded bump that starts at the very top, and actuation right after the bump. There's barely any wobble from the stem, and the key doesn't move at all until you apply enough pressure to get past the bump, so they don't feel spongey at all.
justed emailedd MS. They say it's now going to be December 20th. Def last time i ever use massdrop. They f up every time.
Arithmetics
Really?! So why don’t they come here and tell all of us rather than keep us hanging?! That’s pretty crappy customer service.
Arithmetics
Yeah, agreed. A full week with no update whatsoever is terrible. There was no advantage in purchasing from MD. Actually a disadvantage. I was going to get the Creamy switches from MD but went with KPRepublic instead as it was cheaper and they shipped significantly sooner.
Hey now, can a brother get an update here? This drop was supposed to ship two days ago and I have received no information at all in regards to it.
Any news on when this will be shipped?
this actually going to ship dec 4th? if so , hype hype hype

Perfect! Holy Sheißios it is.
so I received my zilents 67g in July, I was wondering if they were v2. I bought zilents 67g. Unfortunately these aren't as snappy compared to my v1 zealio 65g. Does anyone know if the switch feel between a zealio 65g and zilent 65g are the same? I am thinking of getting another set of zilent 65g; or maybe I'll just move the spring(s) over to the switch?
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 you already have V1, I;d buy yours!

Already sold! You can try /r/mechmarket
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?

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?

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.
