Best purchase of my life and I've adopted a kid.

Day one of using this keyboard, it worked perfectly. I loved the LEDs, the feel of the MX Browns, just about everything about this keyboard seemed perfect compared to my previous keyboard. Day two of using this keyboard, I was playing a game and about 30 minutes in, I hear the disconnect sound from my computer and also notice that the default light pattern on the keyboard stopped moving and pressing any key on the board did not do anything. When I went to click the reset button, nothing happened, so I had to power down my PC. To my surprise, the keyboard lights still stayed on even though the PC was powered off, so I unplugged the keyboard and let it sit for 30 min. After I plugged everything in and powered up my PC, everything worked fine for the rest of the day. Day three, everything that happened in day two was happening every 10 minutes of using the keyboard, making it unusable. Now I know that this is very unusual looking at all of the other reviews, but it is still upsetting. I have reached out to massdrop and they are sending me a replacement. Hopefully the new one works like its suppose to, and if it does, I'll update this review. Update to this review. 3/20/2019 They actually sent me the replacement before I sent in the defective keyboard which was nice (because I threw out the old box it was mailed in), and they also covered the cost of the return label which I can't complain about. I have had the new keyboard for a week now with no issues what so ever. Despite having to go through the exchange process, their customer support was very helpful and the process was very smooth. I am happy I have a working keyboard because this board is gorgeous! I know defects do happen and because I got one that was defective I probably would of updated my review from a 1 star to a 4 star, but because their customer service was flawless, this review definitely deserves the full 5 stars.

Great out of the box
Less customization options compared to newer keyboards. I didn't think I was going to get into modding keyboards when I first bought this, but later changed. Also the halo true switches are pretty wobbly and stock spacebar rattles.

Great to use, great to look at
Amazing keyboard! It was my first mechanical keyboard and now I cannot go back using simple membrane keyboards. I liked it so much that I am buy a second (probably a SHIFT for the numpad) to leave at work. Not to mention it looks very nice.

Holy moly !
Love this thing. It’s solid and well made. Doesn’t feel cheap at all. I wish they had more selection on switches but I paired mine up with true switches and this thing is bad ass

Sturdy Keybaord
Love this keyboard. It's small, sturdy, and feels good. I've been using this keyboard exclusively for the past 4 months and I have no complaints. I was a little worried that the plastic color strip around the outside of the would result in some flex in the case but it does not, the case is rock solid. I prefer a heavier keyboard and for it's small size the DROP ALT is hefty but I still pack it in my backpack when traveling with my laptop because it's so much more satisfying to use than my laptop keyboard. I haven't done anything to cutomize or program the keyboard so I can't speak to the ease of that process but I've been happy with the factory set up right out of the box.

Perfect low profile keyboard!
RGB makes the board run way faster and the dual usb-c ports and very very useful. Changing the stabilisers and putting some foam in can make this board even better

Great board for the money, stabilizers could be better.
I love the dual usb-c connectors, wish more boards included it as a feature

Decent keyboard with one glaring issue. Where is the wireless capability?
For the price, I would expect wireless capability in addition to the wired usb-c option. It does have a nice USB-C hub and you can plug in the cable on either side, which is a plus.
