I received my V3 mechanical keyboard today, and when I went to use my existing USB-C to USB-C cable, I got no response. I tested with the included USB-C to A cable, which is in no way long enough to replace the 15 foot cable I was already using, and the keyboard is fine. Using it to type this, actually.
The problem became BLINDINGLY CLEAR as soon as I looked at the cables. The included cable's connection point is about 1MM longer than on commercially available cables, as well as having an inset collar. A regular cable literally can't fit securely or make a connection.
The design of the cable restraints in the channels on the bottom are still far too aggressive as well, cutting into the jacketing of both the included cable and my existing cable.
I note support posts for both of these issues which are nearly a year old.
Overall, that's really disappointing for a $200 keyboard.
