It will save you 10 euro. The special service request costs you 15 :twisted:

:o No worries :oops:

Green light for uneven orders from KBC - That means go nuts and have all your friends and family buy one until the end of March. We can ignore the MOQ "steps" for this order and order with any amount. Go Go!

Red are linear while blue are clicky, I haven't a red mx board but I have a black linear one and I prefer the blues for typing, but it's mostly a personal choice. Read around, watch the videos / reviews and chose :)

Unfortunately, none of that can substitute for actually testing a board with red switches. Before I bought a Filco with blues I watched tons of videos on youtube and dug myself through an equal amount of reviews/topics across the net. The experience was totally different from what I expected....

Reds feel like linear Browns. Because that's what they are. So in gaming I don't see a lot of difference and in typing they are OK, just more boring than Bobby Brown. And THAT'S pretty boring.

Well, let's say very "surprising". Took me an hour or so to appreciate the difference in tactility in comparison with the browns. All in all I prefer the browns due to their lightness, though. (the blues are almost like excercise to me....)

ok, i'm shure that I want this keyboard... But now I'm unsure about getting it with reds, starting to want the blues...
Do you think that the Red Switches will get standard like the blue, or is it another oneoff like last time?
Because if the Reds is a oneoff I ofcourse want the reds, but if that not is the case I'm going blues.

What do you guys think?

Well, the reds are not uncommon in Asia. However, in the west it's a total different story as you certainly know... Considering this I don't think that this is likely.

I got a red one, just to test them out, but if I don't like them I'll consider getting a MX clear board and swapping them out.

Also the guys behind the Poker went for a new name, so instead of KBC Poker it is now VorTex Poker X.

Sweet, would you know if this is the same version as the one Geekhackers will get? The font kinda sucks, I might have to put my Futura Filco keys on it.

Also what's the deal with the 7 key?

It says KBC, so you don't need to type the number seven ever again...

I don't even like typing that number anyway.

Yeah, the other numbers are much better. They featured the number 7 on Sesame Street once, it was the worst episode ever, even worse than the one where they didn't show Katy Perry. The makers of Sesame Street are evil.

I could live with the 7 (barely). But the & is outrageous.

At the risk of insulting ducks everywhere the "Web" key is the one that makes this keyboard less leet.
