Product Description
The Drop CTRL High-Profile is just like the original CTRL, but now it comes with a tall CNC-aluminum case that covers the switches. Machined to be 6-degrees, the case is ergonomically crafted for a natural feel—and it’s quite a bit heavier than before Read More

Great news everyone, the CTRL High Profile mechanical keyboards have started to arrive (a few weeks early!). These should mostly be shipping in the coming days, there may be a few that need to wait for a second shipment coming in a couple weeks (still early though).

Will it be gone forever after the Timer ends or is that just the date when they bulk ship them?

Does anyone have a suggestion for matching numpads that can go with this keyboard? Right now I have a ducky pocket and it doesn't really fit with the aesthetic. Ideally it would have a flat metal body and the edge lighting of the CTRL, but just aluminum body would also be good.

I'm having a problem with the right winkey being dead (2 to the right from the space bar). I saw this when I first received my keyboard and sent it back for replacement. Just got my replacement and it has precisely the same dead key. I've swapped switches to no avail. The switch light comes on so there's definitely a good connection. This looks like it could be a systemic issue with the CTRL. I'll see if there might be a firmware remedy.

Think I have the answer to why the right WinKey does not appear to function as such, and it's basically an oversight on my part. The default key mapping firmware flashed to the keyboard defines the right WinKey as "Fn", and this key is defined as a special prefix key for functions like changing lighting configuration and media functions. The functions are detailed on the card included with the product, and online here as well: https://drop.com/talk/9382/how-to-configure-your-ctrl-keyboard Having ordered the bare-bones version without key caps, this functionality wasn't immediately obvious to me. The keyboard is in fact working as designed.

Unfortunately, there's a lot of power leakage from the LED drivers on my sample of this keyboard - when I have the backlights running my USB hub practically sings, with peaks at just over 200Hz and around 2600Hz. I don't have this problem with other keyboards, e.g. my Ducky One 2 RGB TKL. The USB hub is a 10-port hub from Anker with a 60W external power supply, so there's plenty of juice. I can't trigger the behavior by putting even substantially more power demand on the hub by charging some other devices, so it seems to be specifically related to the keyboard. Changing the brightness changes the volume of the tone; changing other power draws has no impact. Arguably the USB hub should be able to handle this sort of behavior as lots of devices have poor power conditioning at the input, but I wonder if this is a manufacturing issue like a missing capacitor. Is this typical for these keyboards or should I be doing an exchange?

Is there any way to verify drop products ? I have got my black high profile CTRL keyboard from China.

Has anyone else been having trouble with their keyboard disconnecting? I've noticed if I use the right USB port it's unreliable and prone to disconnects. I can usually get trigger it by wiggling the cable a little bit, but it will disconnect on it's own as well.

Will drop be coming out with a new keyboard design after the sale period ends? New design or not, any idea when a Drop TKL keyboard will be back for sale after this one ends?
