Hello, short question. I misbuyed the ergodox with cherry switches, I read into the subject and I would prefer Matias ones. I contacted the customer support who told me that only 40 people ordered Matias switches. And they can't change the switchtype for me cause they have ordered allready. I wonder how this is possible but ok. I am working in Libraries often and I read that matias switches are less noisy then the cherry counterparts. Anyone willing to swap orders, so I could get the Matias ones? Thanks in advance,
v.

I have enough of the Linear Matias to swap with you if those work for you. They're incredibly quiet and very light. I think 35g is their weight. Let me know if those will do and I'll get your info from Support.

That's real good of you, Alex.
It's certainly true that individual Massdrop staff are well iintentioned. That's never been the problem... or perhaps it is part of the problem, insofar as the fact that you're all such nice people might be part of the reason MD has gotten to an unmanagable size.

Did you order keycaps with your original order? Your biggest problem is not going to be switches, but keycaps. You can try harvesting some from an old Apple or Dell keyboard, or you can join the ALPS keycap drop at https://www.massdrop.com/buy/alps-keycaps - hurry, only 2 more days!
I'm one of the 40 who ordered Matias, but sorry, I'm not switching :)
