Why not just import it from PChome? I did it came in like 4 days. I PM'd the CM rep here and asked him to give an update. A couple people have been posting that CM reps stated its only blues for now in the US.

He hadn't been on for 5 days so hopefully he logs on and fills us in. I ordered the Blue switch version last night off of superbiiz for $78 shipped. Too good of a deal couldn't pass it up.

If I'm not mistaken the keycaps on the PCHome version have Chinese character radicals on them, which I don't find desirable even as someone who types Chinese, lol. It would take an extra $40-$50 to replace the keycaps, bringing the pricepoint to around $150, at which point I'd rather just wait for US release. Also at issue is the warranty. Normally if something goes wrong you can contact CM on their site and they'll send you a new one if something is wrong with the product. However, seeing that these aren't sold in the US yet, they would have nothing to replace it with. I'm not even sure CM's warranty covers products purchased overseas, a brief Google search suggests it doesn't, though I could be wrong.

Yes the chinese characters are not my favorite. But i had planned on changing the caps regardless so I wasn't bothered by it.

Warranty is an issue and I am just crossing my fingers that it won't be needed.

Unlike you I don't have a lot of money to thrown around for keyboards (I've seen how many you've bought in your posts at GH, haha). I want to get the best for the money I want to spend (~$80-$100). Also, I don't want Chinese characters on my keys.

Carter's response a few posts up is encouraging. Looking forward to the news... thumb.gif

Honestly I don't have money to throw around. I've been selling some other pc hardware to fund this new obsession. But I understand what you are saying, I have bought a number of them recently but I keep selling them off to try something else. Anyways good luck on your search.

Sorry I didn't mean to come off like that. I know the feeling, and I've done it with other hobbies for sure. Thanks for the tips, and I appreciate your knowledge/reviews. They help a lot!

No worries man. I'm new at this myself. Got my first mech in October. I've been hooked ever since trying to find the right switch. Caps that feel the best etc. I finally realized I like multiple switches. And its nice to switch up and get a different feel.

But I'm loving typing on this filco with Browns and pbt caps. These caps really give it a different feel.

As previously mentioned, for the Retail rapid edition we went with blue switches.
We have otw, both reds and brown boards but they will be sold exclusively through our CM Storm until we gain enough traction to prove it smart to bring in all swtich types. Its very difficult for retailers/etailers to have the so many of the same products with just different switch types. Please bare with us, and I will check the forecast to give you an exact date on when these two board should be available tomorrow when I return to the office.

Europe? Any date?

I will check with our EU team. I handle all of the gaming products for N.A region only. I can only specifically speak for US/Can layouts/dates
