Product Description
The Drop ALT mechanical keyboard is just like the CTRL, but with 67 keys instead of 87. Absent of function keys, it wastes no space—but it still has a full set of arrows and numerals Read More
Review Highlights:
Amazing keyboard
Keyboard is hefty and feels very sturdy. I bought the barebones kit since I saw you could purchase it with the GMK Red Samurai keycaps and I also wanted to use different switches than the ones you could get with the pre-built set. It's very easy to get into the board if you want to band-aid and change the stabs. I went with sakurios from zeal pc and keyboard feels amazing. I love the look of the Red Samurai caps and I'm pretty fond of the mx profile. I haven't yet messed with flashing the board but I like the options that are preset on the board for RGB. I highly recommend this keyboard, definitely the best keyboard I've ever had.
Would recommend to a friend.
Awesome quality! I love how it sounds, looks and feels. Top notch.
I've assambled mine with Zealios V2 and DROP + MATT3O MT3 /DEV/TTY KEYCAP SET. Its like driving a Bugatti - or at least what I can imagine it would be :)
Would recommend to a friend.

Q&A Highlights:
What kind of switches can I use with this - PCB mount or plate mount?
Plate mount will work best, but if you happen to have PCB mount switches you can mod them to allow them to fit (involves clipping two plastic bits off the bottom of each switch).
