since its a drop keyboard on principle I know that the hot sockets are just gonna fail after 2-3 different swithces it happened for my alt and for the tokyo v3...
I’ve had that happen with higher end boards more expensive than Drop Keyboards. But the sockets can easily be replaced I found just by watching tutorials on YouTube. Now I know with hotswap it’s more of a convenience to not have to solder and to use my favorite switches. If you want a better alternative to hotswap I find soldering holtites on solderable pcb a better option as I’ve changed 15 times and none of the holtite sockets ever came loose because it is soldered better than a hotswap socket and more securely I find.
