Their factory and offices are shut down right now due to the coronavirus.
They are right now, but that doesn't inhibit an IC. Just delays any potential GB.

Fair enough, color alone has been enough difference in the past. Spring weight is a good point.

This community is odd.
It certainly can be odd. But it is also such an amazing ocmmunity!

Re: [IC] Durock Silent Linear Switches

I got a few of these from primekb. They aren't bad, though I'm not necessarily sure I see the need for a GB and all the hassle involved with that when they are already available there for only a bit more. Couple of differences between these switches and PrimeKbs Silent Alpaca switches - 67g spring ...

Re: [IC] Durock Silent Linear Switches

Small Update So these are the same switch as PrimeKb's upcoming Silent alpaca switches. They are 62g variants with a different colouring. PrimeKB's listing shows a price of $0.65 USD per switch. Which are quite tight margins based on a 20,000 pcs MOQ. I should be able to lower the expected price to ...

Just to clarify: So, "Durock" == "Lee" in that link about the "Stealios" controversy ?
And Durock has always been the only brand/manufacturer of the T1 switch?
That is how I read it, yes.

Just to keep everyone up to date. The current plan in case we do not reach 96,000 switches is too order 48,000 switches and fulfil as many orders as we can in the order that orders were made. The remaining orders will be given the option to cancel for a full refund or to keep their place in the queu...

I have asked my distributor this, however I think that if there is a price drop it may only be at 96,000 (twice MOQ).
