Thank you for the video on these! I enjoyed it. Are these switches better than buckling springs?

They really are improving these a lot. I don't like a lot of new boards, but I've been watching these the last year or so and it keeps getting harder to not grab one.

Me too! There's a lot to like about them. It's not a question if I'll get one but when.

HOT DAMN...

Want the Clicky 104 version. Bet these will first appear on MassDrop. If MD supplies it, THIS may be the First decent new keyboard available for purchase this year.

Before the Ellipse F77 shows itself ;) .

For anyone looking to buy one but having difficulty buying through their awful website, contact macy@ace-pad-tech.com; she will handle it for you.

I am tempted with the new TKL in matte black but if they are still working on it i am tempted to wait for a v4 , the sound is MUCH better but its not quite there yet, its about 90% done IMO. It has the look of the NeXT keyboards about it and i like that , was in a group buy for em but as Mµ had to sort family stuff it never arrived :(. So this may fill my simple matte black needs :P. Its like a little black dress for keyboard nerds :D

Let us hope they don't adopt NeXT keyboards' endlessness. :mrgreen:

Let's say the website isn't "westerner friendly" right now :P
Any word on ISO layouts?
