Bringing back some archived sets in the form of a fully built Portico75!

We've put together some keyboards that are ready to plug in and use, straight out of the box. We wanted to make Christmas shopping as easy as possible, either for yourself or someone special. 

These boards are in limited quantities. All sales are final. 

Common Questions:

1. Are keycaps sold separately?

     A. No, keycaps are installed and not sold separately.

2. What stabilizers are installed?

     A. All boards come with Equalz screw-in stabilizers installed. Stabilizers are varied throughout the boards. 

3. Will my board look like the photo?

     A. Yes, each board will come full assembled exactly as shown in the photo.  

4. Can I change out switches, stabilizers, or case color?

     A. No, switches, stabilizers and case colors will not be swapped out. Items are sold as is.

5. Do the boards come with the rest of the keycaps from the set?

     A. Unfortunately no. We created these boards out of keysets that had missing keys, damaged packaging, or sets we opened to do quality assurance checks.

    Keymap and RGB Settings

    The default Portico75 layout can be adjusted in VIA Configurator.

    You can adjust the RGB settings by holding down the FN key (the key immediately to the left of the arrow keys) and pressing:

    FN + F1: Effect mode increase
    FN + F2: Effect mode decrease
    FN + F3: Hue 1 increase
    FN + F4: Hue 1 decrease
    FN + F5: Saturation 1 increase
    FN + F6: Saturation 1 decrease
    FN + F7: Hue 2 increase (please note, only a few effects use a second color)
    FN + F8: Hue 2 decrease
    FN + F9: Saturation 2 increase
    FN + F10: Saturation 2 decrease
    FN + F11: Brightness increase
    FN + F12: Brightness decrease

    Common Questions

    Is this easy to build for beginners?

    Yes! We designed this specifically for folks who have never built a keyboard before. You have to be mindful of small parts like screws, and check that things work, but it’s a straightforward process that anyone can do. A summary of steps is:

    1. Assemble and attach the stabilizers to the PCB.
    2. Screw together the plate and the PCB.
    3. Put this into the case and screw it together.
    4. Insert switches.
    5. Install keycaps.

    And you’re done! You can get the full rundown in our Build Guide.

    How do I configure the keymap?

    Portico75 is compatible with VIA Configurator, which is an easy-to-use app. You click to change what keypresses do, and changes take place instantly—you don’t need to flash your keyboard to apply the changes.

    Read more about using VIA Configurator →

     

    In addition to this build kit, what else do I need to buy to build a complete keyboard?

    You’ll need to buy switches and keycaps.

    • Switches: Portico75 uses 79 switches and works with MX-style switches. We recommend buying 84+, so that you have a few extra in case a pin gets bent or you lose one. 
    • Keycaps: Portico75 has a 75% keyboard layout. It is compatible with most custom keycap sets, as it doesn’t feature any unusual key sizes. As always, take care to double check the keycaps you’re buying to ensure it will fit on the Portico75 layout!

    This layout is missing keys! How do I type them?

    You access the missing keys via another “layer” of keys. It's like typing numbers or symbols on your smartphone, or holding 'shift' on your keyboard to type capital letters.

    For example, by default FN + F11 will increase the brightness of your RGB LEDs and FN + F12 will decrease it.

    This can all be configured in VIA

    Fully Assembled

    This is a fully assembled board, including stabilizers, switches, and keycaps.

    Sound and Feel

    Each component of the Portico75 was carefully chosen to produce a budget keyboard that feels and sounds like a high end board right out of the box.

    Gasket Mount

    The Portico75 uses the same gasket mounting system as many more premium boards. Versus a standoff mounting system as offered by other boards in the same price point, gasket mounting offers a good combination of increased durability and better typing feel due to the keyboard’s flex within the case.

    Anyone at any age can build one!

    The Portico75 build kits are designed to be the highest quality, easiest entry level board. It's easy to switch out keycaps or switches to get the perfect board for you!

    QMK/VIA Compatible

    The Portico75 is fully compatible with VIA, the premier programming software for premium mechanical keyboards. Portico75 has complete plug-and-play software support - no sideloading of JSON files needed.

    Hotswap

    The Portico 75 is hotswap compatible so you can easily switch between any of your favorite mx switches.
