Hey guys, I am going to extend this drop out for another week. Obviously this is a huge undertaking and we want it to go through as much as everyone else that’s joined so far. While we are constantly trying to work out a better MOQ for this drop, Das does need a certain quantity before it makes sense for them (think GMK keycaps) to make this many changes to their manufacturing process . In the meantime I ask that everyone that is interested in this going through to jump in - with more people showing interest we will have an easier time getting this moving forward. You obviously will not be changed unless the drop actually goes through. Thanks!

"Das does need a certain quantity before it makes sense for them " *cough bullshit*
Why can tiny companies like KBParadise and Varmilo offer a dozen different switch types yet its soooo hard for DAS just to throw people a bone with just one on a limited run?
Another way DAS can look at this is as a good will gesture for bold face lying and leading people early on with the DAS 4C: They put Greetechs in it and didn't tell anyone. They've always used Cherry switches so that's what people expected. Now I don't want to debate which switch is better or worse - it's the fact that they never advertised this early on (it's on their website now - probably had too many returns due to their treachery.)
This just smells. Just like initial TaoHao Alps, GMK's, and the Topre keyset. Companies want to complain there is no business but don't want to move their ass to make money.
I can see right now just over a 100 boards have been sold. I can tell you KBP/Varmilo would be foaming at the mouth for those kind of sales.
Thank the baby jesus those companies exist.

The holiday dump of a LOT of enticing items at once is probably a factor in why these haven't gone further. I only saw them listed a couple times, and the high MOQ probably turned a lot of people off. I jumped in early despite it having a pretty low chance of making it. Even if the drop doesn't go through, hopefully DAS recognizes the interest. Over 100 takers even though the chances were small reaching quantity says a lot, especially with the flood of deals burying this one the week it came out.
