Zoom65 EE Links:

📌
Air Express
Arrives to Canada via a cargo airplane, takes 14-21 days in transit. This import method is very expensive, as such some of the items brought over via Air Express have a markup added to cover the extra expenses

Scheduled to arrive at Mech.land around late December, 2022 to early January, 2023

Zoom65 Essential Edition Air Express product link 🔗
Ocean Freight
Arrives to Canada via a ship. Takes 45-70 days in transit. This is the standard import method used in most keyboard / deskmat group buys. It's much cheaper than Air Express but takes much longer to arrive.

Scheduled to arrive at Mech.land around March, 2023

Zoom65 Essential Edition Ocean Freight product link 🔗
📌 You cannot combine Air Express and Ocean Freight items in the same order
📌 Most of our rates are approximated. You'll be refunded the difference if the actual rates during fulfillment end up cheaper than what you paid during pre-order. Alternately if the actual rate is significantly higher you may be billed for the difference or offered a chance of a refund.
📌 Depending on our workload volume at the time of fulfillment, we may choose to use a third party fulfillment service to deliver the Zoom65 to you. Please do not order any other in-stock items with your Zoom65 as the fulfillment service will not have them at hand.
🟡 Order combination / modification policy changed significantly recently.

Zoom65 Essential Edition

Essential Edition includes everything you need to assemble your Zoom65, except for keycaps and switches. 

Unlike the Olivia Edition, EE comes with a Bluetooth 5.0 PCB that's compatible with VIA. This PCB can be used in wired or Bluetooth mode. A 2300mAh Li-ion battery is also included in the kit. 

This round of Essential Edition is available in 10 different case colors and 8 different weight and knob finishes. You can mix-and-match to build your perfect Zoom65 out of the 80 possible combinations!

Additional cases, weights, knobs and other parts and accessories can be purchased separately. All the accessories and add-ons are compatible with all rounds of Zoom65 to date.

This is the listing for Air Express. Please see above to learn about the difference between Ocean Freight and Air Express units.

Zoom65 - by Meletrix

Zoom65 aims to make an enthusiast level typing experience and sound accessible and affordable to the general population and hobbyists alike. 

A subsidiary of Wuque Studio, Meletrix was formed to bring the latest innovations happening in the DIY custom keyboard community to the masses without sacrificing quality. 

Each Zoom65 includes a PCB, plate, stabilizers, USB cable, carrying case and more!


Mech.land Recommended Build

We recommend the following build adjustments for a slightly louder, but much crisper sounding and more bouncy / flexy typing experience:

  • No plate standoffs except the two next to the knob
  • No PORON foam under the PCB
  • No PORON foam on the bottom case. You can use a little bit of polyfill if you'd like a slightly deeper sound.
  • No PORON stabilizer pad under the included stabilizers. 
  • 205g0 in the stabilizer housings and stems and XHT-BDZ on the stabilizer wires. 
  • Lubed and filmed long pole linear switches (like Durock POM Linear, WS Onion, Penyu, Graphite Gold etc.) at the stabilizer keys, or at least the spacebar

Features

Premium build quality

Electrostatic coated aluminum top and bottom case

Not only are they more durable than the typical off-the-rack mechanical keyboard with a plastic shell, they feel so much nicer and heftier to the the sight and touch.

Engraved external weight

Each Zoom65 features a weight with the beautiful Zoom65 logo engraved on it. You can choose whether you want an aluminum weight or a PVD mirror stainless steel weight.

Internal brass weight (add-on)

Take your keyboard to the next level with an internal brass weight, sold separately. It weighs about 400 grams and the exposed brass inside the case gives it a nicer, more solid sound compared to having no internal weight.

Internal bass weight is compatible with all Zoom65 sold to date. There will be a type test out in the coming days showcasing the weight.

Ultimate flexibility in layout

Hot-swap PCB

Each Zoom65 comes with a hot-swap PCB. You can install switches by just pushing them into the PCB, no soldering required! Tired of using linear switches? Change them in a pinch! You are not bound to just one type of switch with this keyboard!

Multiple layouts on the same PCB

Every Zoom65 PCB supports multiple layouts! You can have a regular ANSI layout like you're used to seeing, or you can have split left shift, spacebars, backspace or all of the above! You can have stepped or regular caps lock, and ISO or ANSI enter!  

Flexibility of  VIA

Re-map your entire keyboard on the fly with VIA. Add custom macros, special keys and a bunch of other useful functions in many layers. You can even customize the knob, using it for things like page up / down instead of volume control by default. The settings are stored in your keyboard so you don't need to install any software at each new device you use it on.

Elevated typing experience and sound 

Gasket mounted internal structure

Zoom65 features a gasket mount design. It offers a softer, bouncier typing experience and produces a more even sound all around compared to traditional tray mount design found in most off-the-shelf mechanical keyboards. 

Polycarbonate plate & flex cuts

Polycarbonate plates produce a softer, less metallic sound than traditional aluminum plates. Both the Zoom65 plate and PCB feature various flex cuts to allow for a soft and bouncy typing experience.

Dampening and sound enhancing foams

The Zoom65 comes with an array of optional use foam. Some are sound dampening foams, you can use them to make your keyboard really quiet. The keyboard also comes with a PORON sheet that goes between the switches and PCB, offering a very marble on slate like sound. You can experiment with all the different foam configurations to find your sweet spot!

Sound test by Zion Studios PH

Comes with everything you need!

Switches & Stabilizers 

A set of WS stabilizers are also included with each Zoom65. These new stabilizers from Wuque Studio features a brand new design that makes the stabilizer wire impossible to pop off while removing keycaps. If you're new to the hobby then these are the perfect stabilizers for you!

Coiled cable & storage bag

A premium coiled USB-C to USB-A cable is included with every Zoom65. You do not need to spend an extra $30-50 to get a matching cable! Your Zoom65 acan be stored in the included carrying case to transport between home and work, or wherever!

    • Your payment method will be charged as soon as you place the order. As such, if you cancel your order there will be a 4% fee applied to the total refund to account for payment processing fees. This is a fee we do not get back in case of a refund.

    Group Buy

    What is a group buy?

    Keyboard.University has an excellent write up on group buys related to mechanical keyboards. 

    In short and (overly) simple terms, think of them as pre-orders. The process goes something like this:

    • Vendors / proxies (like Mech.Land) collects orders and payments from customers (like you).
    • The payments collected from customers get transferred to manufacturers.
    • Manufacturer begins production. This process can take weeks to months. Our estimate is 45 - 60 days for OA Switches.
    • Once production is complete, the manufacturer sends out the product to vendors / proxies
    • Vendors / proxies ship out the product to customers.

    When will my group buy order ship?

    You are not ordering in-stock products that will ship within a few days. Group buys take time, and sometimes unexpected delays happen. It's very important to keep this in mind before you join a group buy.

    Check the group buy product page to get an ETA of when the product is likely to ship.

    Are group buy delivery date estimates 100% solid?

    The estimates are just that, estimates. Best guesses. Sometimes unexpected things happen that causes a delay. In some rare cases products get delivered before the ETA.

    Can I cancel my group buy order?

    You can cancel your group buy order and get a refund until the group buy ends.

    4% of the order total will be kept as processing fee to cover for the transaction costs.

    Once a group buy ends there will be no refunds or cancellations. 

    I've moved since I placed the group buy order. How can I change my address?

    Send an email to support@mech.land from the email address associated with your order, this way we'll know it really is you who's requesting the change.

    The address can be changed but the recipient name will have to remain the same to prevent scalping. Your shipping fees may change depending on the new address, and you'll be billed for the difference.

    When will I be billed?

    Your payment method will be charged as soon as you place your order. 

    Orders & Cancellations

    When will my order ship?

    For in-stock items your order will ship within 1-3 business days, unless under extreme circumstances.

    Check the updates page for an estimated ship date for group buy products. 

    Can I cancel my order?

    You can cancel your group buy order and get a refund until the group buy ends.

    4% of the order total will be kept as processing fee to cover for the transaction costs.

    Once a group buy ends there will be no refunds or cancellations. 

    For in-stock items, you can cancel your order until it ships. 

    Can I return an item?

    Sorry, there are no returns or refunds once you've received your order. If you receive an item in damaged / defective conditions contact us ASAP and we'll make it right.

    Local Pickup

    Do you offer local pickup?

    Yes, if you are in Toronto, ON!

    Please visit this page for more details on how you can pick up an order in person.

    Shipping

    What shipping method do you use to ship within Canada:

    We use Canada Post for most of Ontario and Québec.

    In addition to Canada Post, we use Stallion Express, a shipping third party to ship to all other provinces and territories. Their rates are far cheaper than Canada Post direct. They mostly use Canada Post, but they also other companies like UPS, Purolator etc. to ship.

    You will receive full tracking info for all packages shipped, with the exception of Lettermail. Instead you will get a video confirmation of your Lettermail package being dropped off in the mailbox.

    What shipping method do you use to ship to USA?

    We use Stallion Express, which in turn uses USPS to ship to USA. They're a shipping third party based in Toronto. We drop off our US bound packages to Stallion Express, they drive these packages across the border to Niagara Falls NY and then ship them within the US using USPS. 

    Their fees are very affordable and that's why we can afford such competitive shipping rates to USA.

    We also use UPS to ship to USA.

    What shipping method do you use to ship to the rest of the world?

    We can use PostNL tracked, APC tracked or UPS to ship worldwide. The international shipping price you see during checkout is just a best guess average. Your rate will be calculated manually and you'll be refunded if it ends up being less than what you paid. You'll be invoiced for additional amount if it ends up being higher, and you can cancel your order if you choose to do so in this case.

    Can I be charged extra for shipping even after I've placed my order?

    Shipping fees calculated during checkout are correct for 99% of the cases. However it's not possible to accurately estimate shipping fees to all the parts of the world. If you live in rural areas it might cost more to ship things out to you. 

    If that's the case and the shipping cost difference is significant, you will be contacted and asked to pay the difference. If you choose not to then your order will be cancelled and you will be refunded in full.
