The Hope75 keyboard kit is a premium gasket-mounted keyboard kit. It is designed to be screwless with a unique internal locking plus an external locking fixing method.
Both the PCB and the plate have been designed with many flexes cuts to ensure a soft typing feel and premium typing sound experience.
The rear weight of the Hope75 keyboard is fixed in a through-screw way. We adopted the magnetic footpad to cover-up the screws to avoid the incongruity of extra screw holes. It makes the surface of the keyboard look tidy and clean and easier to disassemble the kit.

- What is a group buy? Group Buys are a method of sale similar to a pre-order. Payments are collected ahead of time in order to submit a bulk order to a manufacturer for production. Due to this, there is often an extended timeline from the order date to when the product is shipped out, with these timelines ranging from a couple weeks to several months. In all Group Buys posted here on the site I will include on the order page an estimated timeline for production and shipment.
- You missed your estimated timeline. What's going on? We provide weekly updates for all group buys, so that customers can stay informed and up to date on the progress. Many times unforeseen issues can occur, which can cause delays.
- Can I get a refund for my Group Buy purchase? I changed my mind. The nature of the GB process means that funds for refunds are not available after submission of the group payment to the manufacturer. Refunds may not be available after submission of your Group Buy order. Refunds will not be available after bulk order submission to the vendor. Refunds may be made available on a case-by-case basis at our discretion.
Despite all the horror stories, my board came in as advertised and is my daily since receiving it.
I had high hopes for this board but having built it and used it, I find myself conflicted and honestly a little disappointed. On one hand, there are several notable design drawbacks that negatively impacted by experience during the build, such as but not limited to the use of delicate ribbon cables and the top case having clearance issues with switches next to the screw posts, but on the other hand I'm actually quite satisfied with how the finished product turned out and I feel some level of contentment with the board. Overall quality of materials is good, plenty of accessories included in the box such as foam pieces and allen wrench tools, and QMK/VIA is working flawlessly. The GB price was definitely too high IMO and there are some really solid competitors for less, but I don't regret my choice to enter the GB.
