I sent them an email asking them about my order, and it got shipped out the same day as I got a reply to that email. Don't know if that had anything to do with my order getting shipped, but yes, the amount of delays has been absurd.

I can understand this part

Fine enough, shit like this can happen when you're going to between two languages and your business partner is China.
>hiccup
This must be something really embarrassing now

I'm just looking forward to customs ripping me a new one.

Corsair keyboards are shit (see this >>56602501
), stay away from them.
WASD is a step up. The custom keycaps are shit and overpriced, don't get them unless you absolutely need/want some custom design.
Their build quality is supposedly not that amazing either.

You can get a switch tester to test out different switches.

On that note, what kind of wood is that?

I'm not sure if your camera is just a piece of shit or if that's actually composite.

Also, good choice of switches. Gateron blacks are very nice.

>>56584438
>come with the best keycaps you can get
Eh. They're quite decent and the profile is nice, but 1mm PBT is hardly "the best"

Pop a cap and check the switch and the keycaps.

And post a picture of the label on the back.

The HHKB already comes with PBT caps.

Unless you want to gut a novatouch for the stems, there's no PBT caps available that would fit the HHKB that are of any higher quality than the stock ones (1mm).

Weakest tactility, once you start typing on them at any decent pace they'll start feeling like reds with dirt stuck in the middle.

dye-subbed keycaps don't really fade

And that picture of yours isn't a dyesub, it's a doubleshot.

well, if you're interested despite what will probably be really high shipping costs, drop me an email and I'll find out how much the shipping would run you at.

>If the keys go down when I press them and make the letter I typed then I don't give a shit how thick the plastic is or whatever technique was used to put the letter on it, because neither of those things affect the quality of the switch or how well they were attached to the PCB
Then you're in the wrong thread anon.

The case is flimsy, the bottom row is beyond non-standard (though the PCB would allow for a standard configuration) and the metal plate is also thin as shit, giving the whole thing some flex and the spacebar rattles like all hell.

Don't get me wrong, it's not a terrible keyboard that will break down on you in no time or something of the sort, but you can do better than this thing for the money. Every other keyboard I own has better build quality than this thing, and one of those is a 50 bucks chinkboard.

I've got gateron blacks and some PBT caps (except for the bottom row) on it now, and it's quite a decent typing experience, but I'd still not recommend it unless you absolutely want the layout and you're willing to spend a stupid amount of money on compatible keycaps.

>>56159541
Qisan Magicforce, I picked it up on Aliexpress for 50 bucks.

>>56159569
Quickfire Rapid if you want cherry switches, various chinkboards if you don't mind chink knockoff switches.
