UPDATE: White is now OOS online. Changed deal link to the black one

Seems Mem-ex is clearing stock of this board, this board is a few years old and there is a V3 out now. I saw this deal on bapcsalescanada reddit a few days ago and they were apparently restocked, surprised it didn’t get posted to RFD.

Decent keyboard, though mixed reviews on the Kalih Polia switch – I have not tried these myself. My musings from owning the Cherry MX Red version (which I paid $130 off kijiji 2 years ago):

Pros:
– RGB is nice and bright (especially with pudding keycaps)
– PBT keycaps feel decent.
– On-keyboard memory.
– Very compact and portable.
– 2 stage adjustable feet.

Cons:
– No software control – per key RGB must be done manually
– Lots of plastic. Plastic frame, and switches mounted to a plate, soldered to the PCB – PCB mounted to the plastic frame.
– USB-C connector seems fragile
– Not great for productivity or if you use the arrow keys/F keys, need to press FN to use those.
– No hotswap.

Ducky also has a firmware update available, depending on how old this stock is they may already be updated: https://www.duckychannel.com.tw/en/Support/Detail/19

I wouldn’t pay the retail price for this in 2022, but for $80 it’s not bad.
