I’ve got four of them So I must like it
I really liked the low profile CTRL so when I saw a sale I had to get two High profile CTRLs. Then they released a Ceramic White high profile case. That means I needed another CTRL pcb. My only gripe is is doesn’t use screw in stabilizers. But I can make the plate mount stabs work nice.

Worked in my build
I had a second CTRL chassis and needed the PCB to complete the build. No issues and I was able to complete the build.

Total CRAP
Received my first PCB, tested it only to find that more than half the switches didn't work. Received a second PCB only to discover while building the board that SO FAR 3 of the F keys don't work. Tried multiple switches in every non-working key and NOTHING. This was my first purchase from Drop and you can trust I won't be a return customer nor will I suggest them to anyone.

Product quality
As good as a replacement can be after I broke my original PCB.

RyanJHDid your first PCB come in a prebuilt keyboard or did you put it together yourself? The CTRL case is literally perfect for me but I've had zero luck with their garbage PCBs.

Bad QC. RMAd replacement still disconnects
Random disconnects. Random lock ups. Truly frustrating. I even sent back my custom cable thinking it was that, but they replied that everything works fine. I have a great looking keyboard that works when it wants to. Stay away from this product, far away.

RigoMortizThis certainly doesn't sound normal for the keyboard. Have you had a chance to update the firmware?
Jyri_DropYes I did. On the pcb before I RMAd it and also on this one. Reading other comments the disconnecting seems like a common issue unfortunately, and I also have a prebuilt drop Ctrl from about 2 years ago with zero of these issues. The current issues are from one of the more recent batches.

It's A Replacement Board
I see a lot of people giving this high ratings for two reasons:
  1. It fits inside the CTRL keyboard
  2. It was in stock and they were able to buy it.
Neither one of those features are extraordinary, at best they're the absolute minimum requirements for this product. The only reason to buy this is if your CTRL PCB died or you are building one from scratch with the special colored CTRL cases that Drop sells. Availability for this product is generally poor. It is currently in stock, but goes out of stock and disappears for months. Drop, of course, won't even acknowledge posts asking when it's going to come back in stock. If you have a dead keyboard or an empty case, this is really frustrating (no how pretty the case anodization is). Next, the board is pretty poor as far as keyboard PCBs go. It appears to have a high failure rate, mostly due to the way the Kailh sockets were soldered. For issues where one USB port stops working, it's just too frustrating to try to fix it yourself, because the PCB traces are such a rat's nest. On top of that there are the standard complaints, it does not support PCB mount switches and the switches are north facing.
