The Meletrix Zoom65 is one of the best custom keyboards to get if you want good value for money. But if you don’t fancy the keycaps and switches that are bundled with it, consider the Zoom665 Essential Edition. You can configure almost every part of the keyboard, and it will be available for pre-order here in Malaysia tomorrow.
Malaysian pre-orders of the Zoom65 Essential Edition is handled by none other than Rebult Keyboards. Pre-orders of the keyboard will open on 8 April tomorrow at 8PM with a RM675 starting price. The value proposition isn’t quite as good as the regular Zoom65 – given that you’re not getting keycaps and switches – but it’s still decent.
Just like the standard model, the Zoom65 Essential Edition uses a gasket mounting system with a full aluminium body, rotary encoder, polycarbonate plate, and of course, a hotswap PCB. Interestingly, this PCB also supports Bluetooth 5.0 with VIA compatibility.
Yes, the Zoom65 Essential Edition is a wireless custom keyboard, and a 2,300mAh battery is bundled with it too. Also packaged together with this keyboard are Wuque Studio’s stabilisers, a carrying case, and a coiled USB-C cable.
You can pre-order the Meletrix Zoom65 Essential Edition tomorrow on 8 April at 8PM through Rebult Keyboards’ official website; pre-orders will close on 21 April. Deliveries are expected to begin sometime in June or July 2022.
