MGA Standard is an Alice-layout keyboard case.

THIS IS A PRE-SALE PAGE FOR THE FULL KIT of Polycarbonate MGA v3. 

The special edition polycarbonate keyboard is the version 3 of the MGA standard project. 

This project was created by popular request. Due to the manufacturing cost of polycarbonate and unique design concerns with polycarbonate, this project is being launched as a dual pre-order rolling to in-stock upon release. Perks are being offered for pre-order participants. 

This case will accept some Alice PCBs currently available with a USB-C socket oriented underneath the PCB. Of the Sneakbox line of Alice PCBs, version 3 of MGA accepts M4 PCBs, as well as the new M5 PCB with a separate USB socket daughterboard.

Note: Any in-stock items in the same order as the MGAv3 pre-order will be delivered upon MGAv3 fulfillment. 

 

Features: 
- Sold as a pre-order rolling to in-stock, or until max units are sold. 
- Polycarbonate top shell with frosted varnish coating. 
- Bottom

New features in MGA Version 3:
- Case now supports dual mounting choices:
    (1) Sandwich gasket configuration (switchplate suspended between Poron gaskets positioned above and below the switchplate tabs). This mounting method allows for some flexibility of plate travel
    (2) Conventional top shell screw-in switchplate mounting as with V1 and V2 versions of MGA. 
- Internal case allows more downward "flex" travel of the keys and internal components, especially when paired with polymer plate and gasket-mounted
- New seamless lid-cover design, with a chamfered underside profile. 
- Support for two PCB types:
    (1) Conventional Alice PCBs with USB-C socket mounted underneath the PCB
    (2) New PCBs with separate USB-C socket daughterboard.
