The perfect gateway keyboard!
I have the ENTR in silver and white with Halo Trues, and upon first impression is seems like a beefy Apple keyboard. Imagine if you could take the magic keyboard and stretch it out from the table so it’s taller. The board is very solid, the keys are satisfying to type on, and I find it quite easy to get up to speed on it. It’s also much quieter than my other boards, and the switch travel is much smoother. The spring weight is a little heavy for my liking, but I think I’ll get used to it soon enough. My only concerns are a slightly uneven “W” key with a little backlight bleeding through, and the backlight is a little on the Yellow-ish side, but that’s just personal preference I suppose. I plan on swapping out the keycaps anyways, so the W key isn’t really an issue for me. This is my first TKL board, so at the moment I do miss the numpad, but on a desk with limited space, I think it’s a welcome trade-off. I would absolutely recommend this keyboard to anyone looking to dabble in the mechanical world. It would be a great introduction, as it doesn’t carry the sticker shock of most other mechanical keyboards, and it still offers excellent build quality and feel. I just bought a Surface Go 2 and spent more on its detachable keyboard, so I think this has the value proposition in the bag. Now, time to get to work using this thing!

Wonderfully heavy and well built.
This board feels ridiculously well built when you consider the low asking price. The White lighting gives a lovely clean effect with the stock caps, but I personally opted to replace them with some solid caps I had in stock. The stock caps. However, are of a wonderful quality and are now happily living on an RGB board I use for gaming. My unit has the Halo True switches. These differ somewhat from regular tactile switches in that they have a somewhat soft feel. I wasn't sure how I felt about this at first, but I've grown to love them. They don't fatigue the fingers while still having a nice solid bottom out feel. Great for extended use throughout the work day, though they are not my favourite for gaming. Overall, a solid recommendation from me.

Can I turn the lighting off?
You can turn it off or cycle between four brightness levels with a keyboard shortcut. (fn+up/down arrow)
If I want to get different keycaps, will I need to get specific keycaps for the halo trues or will any work
Need to fit an MX style switch and the keycaps need to cover a TKL layout

ENTR the Mech Keys World With Confidence

Mechanical keyboards have been a vital part of the Drop community for years. But with all of their customizable components, they can be difficult to grasp at first. The Drop ENTR is the culmination of our efforts to create an accessible keyboard made with enthusiast-grade materials—a win-win for those just getting into the hobby, and those who’ve been in it for years. Crafted in the popular tenkeyless (TKL) layout, the ENTR has a neutral aesthetic that looks the part in any environment. The keycaps are the same you’ll find on our popular CTRL and ALT keyboards. Made from durable doubleshot PBT, they won’t fade or shine—but they’re easy to switch out if you want a new look. Available in three colors, with your choice of mechanical switches, the ENTR offers unbeatable value. Once you go mechanical, good luck turning back.

Quality You Can See & Feel

From its quality build to its streamlined aesthetic, the ENTR pulls no punches. Constructed with an anodized aluminum case and a plastic top cover, it’s heavy enough to stay put on a desktop, yet not so heavy it’s a burden to take on the go. For the switches, we chose two of the community’s preferred styles. Your first option is Halo Trues: tactile switches known for their snappy feedback and satisfying tactile “bump.” Your second choice is Gateron Yellows: linear switches (with no tactile “bump”) that feel mushy—a great choice for gentler typists and gamers, thanks to their speedy actuation. Whatever you choose, the ENTR has N-key rollover, which means it keeps up with every keystroke, no matter how fast you type. Finally, it’s backed by the latest USB-C connection with white LEDs for visibility in dark conditions.
