Firstly, let's talk about the front. Unlike the narrow border design of the previous series, the Z75 uses a large border design with rounded side profiles, which looks softer and smoother.
The transition between the upper and lower case is rounded, giving it a smoother feel. The interspersed upper, lower and bottom shell structure highlights the waistline while avoiding bulkiness. In addition, the waistline extends to meet the curve of the front edge, creating a small notch that adds to its aesthetic appeal.
The 20-degree slanted design of the front and back edges creates two symmetrical parallel planes that enhance its depth and three-dimensionality.
The entire back panel is also a 20-degree slope design, with curved small slopes on both sides connecting with the straight lines of the foot pads, which is simple yet comfortable.
Finally, the weight on the back and the logo on the front are both composed of two rings, which combine to form the letter Z, hence the name of this kit, Z75. The Z logo is also a CAPS indicator light, and the light can cycle freely.
With a round large border, it is 36.4cm long and 16.64cm wide, weighing approximately 6 pounds (including switches and keycaps). It feels heavy in your hand. The 20mm front edge height and slanted design not only conform to ergonomics but also provide a comfortable typing experience for extended periods of time, as well as better aesthetics. For internals, we are sticking with gasket mount. The PCB has single-mode and dual-mode options and is equipped with two battery compartments allowing for a capacity of 5000mAh.
It not only extends the symmetrical beauty visually but also improves battery life. The single-mode PCB supports both VIA and VIAL key customization, and you can use VIAL without downloading firmware. The dual-mode PCB still uses the LDN and can connect up to eight Bluetooth devices with one-click switching.
This kit moves away from the popular flex cuts. There will be no flex cuts for the PCB and plate, providing a new experience for everyone. We provide two types of plates with significant differences in material: POM and aluminum. For others who would like plates with other materials or flex cuts, we will provide design files later on.
Based on experience of previous products, the battery connection interface of this kit is connected to the TYPE C daughter board instead of PCB for easier installation and removal.
