XD75 S Steel Case x1
AliExpress Standard Shipping
A simple design that's easy to modify both functionally and aesthetically. Little material used but very stiff and respectably heavy.
No case ping after building the keyboard. Even when hitting a key unreasonably hard, I'm getting no ping from the case whatsoever. However, the sound is not muted at all so consider some dampening if you want muted - definitely a foam between the PCB and plate, perhaps even plate pads.
It's worth checking that the case is level. Mine was slightly warped which resulted in about a millimetre of wobble. Twisting the whole case a little bit fixed this in about three seconds. Other than that, there's really nothing to complain about.
Because the plate is at the very top, the overall profile is relatively high. I don't recommend keycaps higher than OEM profile. 03 Jan 2022 08:15
