I did not receive a manual, should there be one? Where can we go for a list of all the keybindings? I somehow managed to swap my CAPS and CTRL buttons and have no idea how/what I did to make that happen. Any advice? lol.

There should be a manual. I got one. Take note of the symbols on the keycaps. FN+F6 through F8 modify stuff. The one that you're specifically looking for is Fn+F7 (up/down symbol.

You can reset your keyboard to factory setting by holding down FN+R.

Thank you, you are amazing. At least I figured out how to get it back out of Dvorak on my own haha.

There's a link to MF-87's manual on its page. The controls should be the same.

This video explains things better though. Skip to around the middle.

Yeah, I found that video when trying to find examples of how the lighting modes should function since the manual gave me a headache. There's still a few things I'm not clear on even after watching the lighting mode part of the video, and reading the manual five times:
1. What the hell is the manual referring to under the Light Mode table for Fn + Blank = Pause current dynamic lighting/resume dynamic lighting. Seriously, wtf is "Blank". It's even mentioned again in the text under #3 "...press Fn+blank to pause current keyboard lighting". The only thing I can think of is it's a printing error, and "Blank" was a placeholder.
2. In the video at about 6:39 he displays a reactive mode that flashed the lights in "quadrants". I'm not seeing that mode on this keyboard. I know this is a different model, but they even include the manual to the F108/F87 with this keyboard, so I would have figured that they're indicating that the modes are the same. Is this mode missing in this model, or is my keyboard defective?
3. Speaking of the manual.....just wow, what a mess. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt as it appears to have been a best effort to translate into English. But, still, for a keyboard that has fairly complex lighting/RGB controls, and no software to control it, the manual is pretty vague and confusing.
4. Another thing that makes me think that this model is slightly different than the F108/F87: The manual states under "Speed mode and others" that the light to the right of the space bar will change with those settings. On this keyboard, the light that changes is in the Capslock. So, if that's different, what else is different?
5. Hey, another complaint about the manual: In the manual Fn+F4 only lists three modes. However, when you press Fn+F4 on this keyboard, there's five modes. So, great that we get five modes, but still makes me wonder what we'd know if we had an accurate manual.
Other than all that, I'm one of the lucky ones. I don't appear to have any issues with my keyboard. However, it's a bit disheartening to hear others are having issues. I don't remember how many people joined this drop, but my email from before it ended indicated there was at least 122 people. There appears to only be a "handful" reporting back in the discussion here about issues, but that doesn't factor in people that aren't reporting their issues, or don't know they have issues.
Anyways, all that said, I like the keyboard. It's very solid, and has a great feel to it. The lighting and RGB modes are pretty neat. Hopefully I'll either get answers to my questions above, or I guess I could become an electrical engineer so I can figure out the modes without - or in spite of - the manual.

1) Blank refers to the space bar. 4) Speed mode seems to have to do with repeating characters when a keys is held. If you press Fn+4 and try to type something it will look like ttttttttttttttttttttthhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhihiiiiisssssssssssssssssssssssss. Press Fn+1 to go back to normal.

Hey, I've just got my MF-87 and it's also the same as you mentioned in number 4. The right LED of the spacebar that was supposed to light up to notify the speed mode status doesn't work. Instead the one that acts on that is the Caps Lock's LED, which I thought it was for Caps Lock status. But then the Caps Lock status has its own white LED indicator at the navigation cluster. Man, this is so mind f**ked (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
