Kono [kono.store] is currently selling the Hexgears Supernova (full size) and Nova (TKL) mechanical keyboards for $49.99 and $44.99, respectively. You can choose between Kailh Box White, Box Brown, or Hako Clear switches (+$5) and a Black, Grey, or Blue aluminum chassis.

Nova:

Even with the standard shipping cost of $9.86, this is the best price I've ever seen for both a full size and a TKL keyboard with Kailh Box Switches and/or Hako Clears. And they're both RGB backlit to boot. Do note that the keyboard also has a RGB ring light around the chassis, which may be annoying or tacky to some.

Kailh Box Whites are most closely equivalent to Cherry MX Blues, with a click sound and tactile feel. However the click is much more refined, imo, due to their use of a "click bar". Makes a click sound on both keypress and release. Will annoy office co-workers.

Kailh Box Browns are most closely equivalent to Cherry MX Browns, with no click sound and a tactile feel.

I don't have experience with Hako Clears but I've read they are extremely tactile and very heavy. You need to press down a tiny bit harder on these so beware if you need to type a lot - chances are you'll tire out your fingers.

I forgot to mention that their bottom row is non-standard. The Window, FN, and Menu keys are smaller. Many keycap sets will likely not be able to fit this keyboard's bottom row. All other keys are standard sized.

My old Rosewill Cherry Brown has held up decent, but I've always wanted a bit more oomph. Been watching for a nice Clear, pulled the trigger. Thanks!

Oof - I tried looking around for codes and coupons but I must have missed this one. Shame, could have saved myself a few bucks. Added it to the post. Thanks!

I didn't NEED a new keyboard, but my trusty cherry blue work keyboard is starting to show its age...

I ordered the supernova with Hako Clears and gray chassis. I'll move that one to my home keyboard and switch my home keyboard to my work keyboard. At least my coworkers will like the Brown switches on the other keyboard better, LOL

No brown left in the black or gray chasis. Picked up the Blue chasis/brown switches. Thanks!

I just got mine today. Just what I thought it would be. Super hobby-grade keyboard. It's rock solid. My fingers are going to get a workout on these 70g switches but it's great. Great cherry on top of my new build.
