[GB] Chiwi60 kit w/ brass plate [under glow][Non-floating 7 deg]: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=93969.0
Chiwi60 is a 60% keyboard kit made by Doyu Studio from Taiwan.
The groupbuy started on February. It encountered some general issues that most keyboard kits GB will face as well, and causing the delay.
White cases were damaged when shipping on the way to Taiwan. They were all sent back to factory for reprogressing.
As a friend of Senin from Doyu Studio, I supported a set. Here's the review.
↓紙盒包裝，上面貼了張印有Doyu Studio logo的貼紙。
The kit was packed by a box, with a Doyu Studio sticker on it.
The brass plate was on top of everything. It was a pity that there's no anti-collision material inside.
All parts of the kit. There were some theme cards.
↓首先看一下電路板。使用的是之前開過團購的Do60 PCB，有黑色及白色的，我選了消光黑色來配合黑殼。USB C的介面，多達20顆的底燈，及最大的特點：兼容超多配置。
Take a look at the PCB first. Do60 PCB was also a group buy item before. I chose matte black instead of white to match my black case.
USB C interface, 20 SMD RGB leds, and muti-layouts support.
Nicely done black anodized aluminum case. Smooth surface, but I forgot to wipe it before taking photos. The chamfer looks comfortable as well.
The plate is mounted to top case. Not like other keyboard kits, there are some screw points on left and right sides as well to help stablize the keyboard.
Sandblasted polycarbonate bottom plate helps diffuse the light from RGB leds. Chiwi name on the brass weight was cute, like an emote.
The brass plate wasn't that good as other parts. Apart from the surface finish, there are too many openings for supporting muti-layouts of PCB.
I am glad that it's a brass plate. It truly won't be stable if it's an aluminum plate.
Highlighted the brass weight and theme cards. Some drawings help buyers build the keyboard as well.
↓我選用Outemu的Sky switches和GMK衛星軸。除了賞心悅目之外，Sky switches是仿製ergo clears的打感，喜歡強段落手感的朋友可以考慮這個軸。
I used Outemu Sky switches and GMK stablilizers. Besides the nice looking color, Sky switches imitate the feeling of ergo clears. Not a bad choice if you fancy strong tactile feelings.
Mounted the plate to top case, and installed the pc bottom plate. Done!
Some photos without keycaps installing. Looks nice!
Nicely done with the USB port opening!
↓之前團購剛拿到的DSA Ice Cream Round2，別問我為什麼照片突然變成1:1的XD。
DSA Ice Cream Round2. Don't ask me why photos were resized to 1:1 haha.
Put in novelty keys in number row. So many colors that they look like reference of SP colors.
↓DSA Ice Cream的左右區分別為紫色及粉紅色，跟一般以往一整套的色系不太一樣，更加繽紛。
DSA Ice Cream contains purple keys on the left side and pink keys on the right side. Looks more colorful.
Time to play some light!
You can see RGB animations from the side. There will be more reflections if your tables reflect.
In conclusion, brass plates and srew points of four side really help improve the potential bad typing feeling caused by many openings of plate.
It's truly surprisingly good. With the price it offered, it's a very high CP custom keyboard kit.
Thanks for watching.
