Really, just sell a barebones keyboard, I need to change the stabilizers anyway and I don't need any switches or keycaps... Also, why is it so hard to make the PCB compatible with PCB mount switches?! I have custom keyboards that have a plate and still support PCB mount switches! This keyboard is too expensive as it is now, you need to change the stabilizers, you need other switches and you will definitely throw away the keycaps if you have a decent set or two... It really has no advantage over customs at this price.

Considering your concerns you are definitely not the targeted auditory for this keyboard. It is obviously not worth the money and something like kbd67 is much better.

Yeah, in the end I gave up on this KB and ordered a barebones regular Alt from the EU warehouse cleanup so I can have another hot swap board. At $110 with no VAT and fast delivery to the door it was a far better option. As for the next custom KB, I am waiting for the Pebble ANSI to show up at KBDFans as I don't like the layouts they are offering now but I also thought about the KBD67V2 Mk II.

Thanks, but I already ordered a regular one from the EU warehouse as it was just $110 with all taxes included...

The problem with it was that people were expecting group buy stuff to ship from there but instead Drop decided to stock already produced items instead. If I knew the barebones version would show up, I would have waited, but now it's too late.

Make sure to buy foams for the kbd67 mkii. Without foams It pings like hell!

Thans for the tip! I did pick up foam for the KBD8X MK II and, together with the lubed switches, it does indeed mute the sound so I assume it's the same for the KBD67 MK II.
