Xarmor U9Plus Black now available at Newegg

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Don't know if anyone noticed this, but it looks pretty cheap in comparison to what I've previously seen it priced for unless it's a different model of the same board.

iOne/Qumax/Qtronix/Scorpius/Xarmor has more brand names than keyboards!

And FIRE that Website Designer!

I emailed them before I ordered my u9bl-s asking about their website and my concern about them being around in the future to support the keyboard. They emailed me back and said their company is fine and will still be around for the forseable future. They said they just aren't selling direct anymore and will be acting only as manufacturer and product support and not a retailer anymore.

If you're comparing this to the $130 U9BL (Blue) and $135 U9BL-S (Brown), then this model differs of course by use of Blacks and also not having LED backlights.

I don't think it uses MX blacks. I heard no plans for that when I was helping them. Black is just the color of the casing/keycaps.

I think it's a U9BL with no backlighting is all.

This is what I think as well.

Btw Phae, thanks for the cert to buy the U9BL I love mine <3

oh and I am curious as to why it's called the "+" when it appears to have less than the normal u9bl ?

Ah, I mistakenly took the OP mention of "Black" to mean the switch type. Yeah, looks like it's the non-backlit version of the U9BL. This other forum group buy also seems to imply the same.

Because they're planning a whole line-up.

U9 (basic)
U9PLUS (extra features)
U9BL (extra features + backlighting)
U9GBL (extra features + backlighting + macro keys)
U9W (wireless)

All other models but the U9PLUS and U9BL will be, to my knowledge, based on the U9BL-S; and the U9BL and U9PLUS have -S versions to mean they have MX browns and some fixes.
