Premium on a budget price
A great layout for those getting into the hobby, hotswap, incredible sound profile compared to the V1. Only thing it really doesnt have that would make this perfect is flex, but with a good deskmat this shouldnt be too much of an issue.

Nice keyboard for the price
A good starter board for people wanting to try different switches. And a good price to try the 75% layout for those that have not tried it yet.

That's a hefty case!
This was a real pleasure to build in, I enjoyed every second after picking the package up after delivery. Feeling the weight the case had was a pleasant surprise, even knowing the weight prior- feeling it was satisfying. Some of my Key Points: The case is machined with tight tolerances. I had to leave the case in the fridge so I could separate the acrylic bottom from the aluminum section, its that well machined (ambient temps @ build ~85F/29C). The color is laid on think, evenly and very durable. The case being aluminum I thought would be "hollow" sounding like others I've built. But it wasn't bad, not at all. I still used a bottom PCB SMRTfoam from Green Door Geeks and all echo/resonance I noticed was removed. I have filmed switches and can't speak for non filmed (subjective) I installed cap dampeners as I noticed extra cap impact/resonance (subjective) The PCB loves finger prints and grease marks, clean well prior to sealing it up. If you're looking for a lifelong 75% case this has my recommendation without a doubt. The extra switch sockets and hardware were a nice addition too.

I am satisfied. Delay was the worst part
The delay was pretty silly like 2+ months, but board is very high quality. I used the stock stabs for a bit and they were loose, but would have probably been fine with lube + holee mod. I had one minor issue with the casting. There were small, thin pieces of metal left in the casting that I had to break off (did it with tweezers so really hardly any metal) or they would squeeze the stab bar between the frame and the board and make it so that the keys would not depress. I say this as a PSA more than a critique, though fixing it would be nice but probably not worth the cost of a new mold for IDOBAO. feel really bad for the person with the tight tolerances causing the acrylic to crack when they forced it back in. For those who may have similar issue in the future, I would recommended sanding the acrylic down instead of forcing it in, but hindsight is 20/20. other notables about it are that it is surprisingly heavy and the stock usb-c cable is above average but probably worth replacing next to such a nice keyboard. I am very satisfied.

Looks good, but has some issues
After the extraordinary delays (which were not entirely the fault of Drop), the board came in looking pretty good. However, while opening up, the acrylic bottom was jammed up into the main aluminum case. I was forced to carefully pry it out with a thin flathead. Once this was done, I noticed a fair amount of the white coating on the inside of the case came off with the bottom at the corners. After the build, while reassembling, I had great difficulty getting the bottom to go back on. A crack even formed on the bottom corner of the acrylic. However, once more of the white coat on the inside got rubbed off from repeated disassembly, the tolerances opened up and the bottom now goes in fine. Honestly disappointed on the tolerance issue and the coating, but it board looks great otherwise.

Took forever to arrive but damn it's nice
Great build, great soldering on the hotswaps sockets. Replaced stabs with screw in so idk about the stock stabs. Bottom lighting looks slick. Turned off the key lights but they seemed fine. The quality of the board makes up for the two+ month delay lol.
