Next-Level DIY, Now Better Than Ever

This fourth-generation of the Zeal60 RGB LED PCB supplies brilliant lighting with tons of modes for your next DIY keyboard project. Outfitted with a fresh new aesthetic, it supports ANSI, ISO, HHKB, Winkey and Winkeyless layouts—so it has you covered for virtually any type of board. All of the RGB LEDs, diodes, resistors, and controllers have been pre-soldered, so all you have to do is solder in the switches.

Hey, actually by experience I meant the building experience in general. PCBs like the Dz60 or similar that offer a lot of compatibility tend to have a lot of holes in them, which is why when you actually solder switches you have to be very careful about alignment. But unless you are very anal (I am, lol) most people dont gaf, and would prefer to save in an already expensive hobby. As far as hot swap goes, I'll be honest Im not keen. I used to love the idea of it, and was very excited for my ctrl to arrive, but after actually using it, I can safely say the hot swap is not for me. That goes for both built in hot swap capabilities, and modded (holtites, kailh hot swaps, etc). I say this because most holtites just aren't that good (loose and wobbly) and unless you solder the holtites in (which kinda defeats the purpose of hot swap in the first place, which is to partly avoid soldering) its loose af, and you always risk ripping out the entire holtites when changing switches. Some vintage switches include the popular vint blacks, hirose, nixdorf, invyr pandas (Holy pandas), etc etc. There are pcbs and plates that support alps, I use alps switches in my boards mainly actually. Built with a hasu pcb and a brass plate in the tofu case from kbdfans. The hot swap is definitely convenient if you like trying between the easily available cherry mx, gateron, and kailh switches, but I guess for me I much prefer the flexibility and option soldering provides. And tbh it scared the shit out of me having to rip my switches out of the hot swap. (and I don't like any scratching from the switch puller on my expensive switches lol)

Hey thanks for the reply. I'm not sure way qualifies as vintage with switches, other than things like buckling springs, foam / rubber dome, alps etc... But I don't think most of those types work with modern pcbs anyway because of pin layout, but I'm sure there are some out there. I would think a KB resto would make more sense in that case anyway, but each to their own. I'm not sure why you couldn't use used modern switches with a hot swap socket unless you really blow it on desoldering and leave crap on the pins. I've used them, and they have worked fine with both the little insert style, and the actual Kaihl socket. I would agree that when using vintage switches hot swap might not be wanted because you could bend a pin if not careful. You mentioned that the experience is better with this pcb, and I'm all ears. Other than aesthetics, what is actually a better experience? The software for programming? That's what I was going to hear. All n all, I think boards are moving to hot swap because people like them for obvious reasons. With more variety of switches coming out, it's a bummer to not have the hot swap ability when you want to try something new. I personally think underglow, hot swap, and led backlit are becoming standard. I am however a weirdo who likes to play with new switches... A lot... Anyways, thanks fit the response, I'm not entirely convinced it's worth it, but I'll keep am open mind. https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/3YveikhuQS2HfTf2iqwU_2341448202538390.jpg
