Product Description
The latest addition to our family of mechanical keyboards, the Drop SHIFT is our largest and most ambitious undertaking yet. Done in the compact 1800 layout, it’s still significantly shorter than a traditional full-size keyboard, which frees up desk space for other gear Read More

Sept 19th Update: We've made some slight tweaks to the stabilizers that has improved their sound by a significant amount. We're being told that the timeline for this will be moved up, and we should be shipping keyboards by mid-October. We're leaving the "estimated" ship date published at Dec 1st for now but we're currently expecting to beat that by about 6 weeks. More updates as we get more information! Oct 1st Update: Expecting to be shipping these around October 25th. Oct 21st Update: Sorry for the late update, but we received word that things have been pushed back on this and I didn't get a chance to post last week. We're now looking at shipping around Nov 15th. Oct 30th Update: Nov 15th is still the expected ship date. Nov 15th update: These cleared customs at JFK Airport on 11/13, should arrive at our warehouse on 11/16 or 11/17 and we'll be shipping a day or two after we get them. There are 1400 keyboards on this shipment and currently 715 keyboards pre-ordered, so this shipment will cover all outstanding pre-orders, plus there will be extras that will be available for our inventory sales. Nov 17th Update: SHIFT Keyboards just arrived at our warehouse. They're unpacking them now (will take at least this afternoon, and maybe tomorrow morning). We might see some tracking numbers by end of tomorrow if we're lucky, if not, likely the following day. Nov 20th Update: These started to ship today. We expect more to ship over the weekend, but that depends on how many staff come in for voluntary weekend overtime. I'll monitor and update on Saturday and Sunday. Nov 22nd Update: 417 keyboards have shipped out of the 710 ordered. I expect the rest will go out on Monday or Tuesday. Thanks for your patience!

I placed this order and it says it shipped but FedEx just says the information was sent to the warehouse. I ordered switches a few days ago(after my keyboard "shipped") and those are already on the way. Hoping FedEx didn't lose it already.

Managed to get the Drop Shift for Christmas, and was really loving everything about it being my first mechanical keyboard. BUT I ran into one unexpected flaw. The magnetic feet are the new style design with 2 magnets on each foot but the magnets aren't adequately cut for the screws to fit recessed. It causes the feet to not sit flush, wobble, and pop off if you move the keyboard sideways. It was ordered through Amazon, so I had them send me a replacement, but the next keyboard had the same issue as well.
just ordered the shift. whats the expected delivery time?

It says on the details page of the product and if you look at the order in your account: Estimated ship date is Feb 23, 2021 PT.

Was briefly available.... and then they cancelled all orders because I guess they didn't get enough money to actually make and ship. Now there is basically no chance they are doing a high profile SHIFT.

It's a great board overall, and I'm ready mod. Drop's configurator won't allow me to alter the behavior of the lock lights, so I'm trying to find the fastest way to do so. I know the QMK tutorials exist, can anybody help guide me to the fastest way to contol the lock lights? I'm making custom numpad layers, but the lock light only works with the embedded layer.

Hey Everyone. Absolutely love this keyboard, my first mechanical purchase. However, how on earth do I assign the hashtag symbol to the number 3 key, atm it types £. I would like to assign £ to key number 4 which currently is assigned $ (I'm in the UK so I don't use the $ key) then the hashtag to key 3, but can't find out how!? Many Thanks, Kevin

No worries. I did realize there is a workaround for you. If you want to use Drop's configurator to alter the shift layer, you can manually create a shift layer and reassign the Shift keys to MO switch to that layer. It takes a while, and isn't "right", but it should work fine. I'm new to programmable keyboards, and I'm surprised. Compared how quickly most of our technology has developed with perfected gui's, keyboards are very much behind. The need to learn any programming for these essential functions would be unacceptable with most common computer tools, but for keyboards, this is the best we have for now. Although this feels limiting, Drop's is one of the better examples anywhere at the moment.

Would be all over this if it was still available. Hopefully the next iteration is improved! No excuse for bad stabs and such for this price. Please keep the indicator lights for capslock etc instead of the cap lighting up.

Started using this recently as I couldnt pick it up from my office until now. The board keeps freezing/locking up when using my work or personal PC but strangely seems to be okay if I have it plugged into a Surface tablet. I've tried every USB port on each PC and various USB cables I have on hand, tried it with LEDs on/off, tried updating firmware, and I'm out of ideas. Really want to use this board so I'm hoping theres a fix or workaround. Any known issues with conflicting drivers maybe?

Thats whats weird to me. I find it hard to believe that there isn't a single port on either 2 full tower PCs built within the last 2-3 years I have here that can deliver as much power over USB as a Surface tablet?

This is a thirsty beast. All of my laptop's usb-a and usb-c ports are 3.1 v2, but only my 'fast charge' port will enable the full ligthing.
