Max Keyboard Group Buy Thread #9

Recommended Posts

Group buy #8 is over and I must've gotten like 10 messages over the past week for a new group buy, so here it is. Be aware guys that the Nighthawk X8 is OOS until sometime in October, but put your name down and hopefully you'll be one of the first to get the new stock. Again, it's 20% for either the Nighthawk X8/X9 or Durandal G1N/G1NL if we can get 10. Yes, they ship to different addresses, yes they ship worldwide, and yes international warranty is covered. You will have to be able to ship it back to them at your own expense. Also, per previous experiences with the other group buy, the 20% off will cover ANYTHING you buy on the site, so if you add custom LEDs, keycaps and stuff, it will all be 20% off. Full details / restrictions on this at the Max Keyboard website. Max Keyboard Group Buy 20% Discount! | Max Keyboard Blog

please add me to the list - btw, do you recommend the o-rings - i've used a coolermaster quickfire pro cherry browns and noticed a distinct "ringing" - like the springs and or metal backplate are resonating - with the key stroke - would like to avoid this with the x8... gmilton11

Please add me! Contacted them and the X8 should be back in stock around October 20th-ish. The guy that emailed me back also let me know there is a "waiting list" and I was added to it. So if you want in on one when they're back in stock, better email them!

The O-Rings just dampen the sound a bit when the keys are bottomed out. They also feel slightly softer as well. Personally, I find that it doesn't make that much of a difference whether you have O-Rings or not, but it doesn't cost all that much to try it.

Add me please! I'm 90% sure I'm going to get this board' date=' only other board in mind is the ducky shine II :P[/quote'] The Ducky Shine II has cherry stabilizers whereas the Nighthawk has Costar stabilizers which are much better feeling... That is how I chose the Nighthawk over the Ducky Shine.

OP updated. Everyone added to list. @Logikal it took them months to sell out last time.
Ok hah. The "sold out since I was away from my computer" comment made me think it was minutes. Sounds good. Looking forward to the purchase and thank you for organizing this!

Ok OP updated. It looks like the list hit 10 again, so I'll send off a message to Max Keyboard for some codes. Not sure if they'll do preorders on X8's, but I'll be sure to ask since it seems like most of you guys want a X8. Update - Alright guys, I got all the codes. For those of you looking for a X8, Max Keyboard will accept pre-orders if you send them an e-mail. Send me a PM if you're on the list. If not, I have a few extra codes for you latecomers as well. Just send me a PM and I'll see what I can do.

Thank you Sam I'll be emailing them tomorrow. Trying to decide if I want to have the WASD keys with a white back light instead of the blue the rest of the keyboard will be in... Any opinion / thoughts?
That should look pretty sick. I'm always a fan of white LEDs. You should send a request to Max Keyboard to get a mock up. They'll send one out and you can post it up here. :)
