I have some broken caps, how can I get in touch with Magicforce about them, not my fault they broke? Massdrop has washed hands of the matter.

Did anyone else notice that the lowest price is the same price that you can buy one from amazon. It's a nice board, just don't see why we need a drop to get prices that are already available.

Actually, all the ones I see on Amazon seem to be Gateron-only, while this Massdrop also has Cherry switches as an option.

O BOY! CHERRY SWITCHES!?!?!!? NEVER SEEN THEM LOLOLOL jk man, but gateron / cherry are pretty much identical, except you pay more for cherry because of brand name. Both are boring IMO, and I won't buy a board with soldered cherry / gateron in them. With so many options out there, its like going to the ice cream shop and buying vanilla. If you like that, cool, but I like something more interesting personally.

i own and do like it. i got mine on amazon where its currently for sale for about the same price. i like my planck a lot more, but the magicforce is just sooo light, its much nicer for traveling.
the right shift key instead of the space bar is annoying, so you do need a way to reprogram it in software. I use autohotkey for windows and karabiner for macos.
the other big annoyance is the lack of a dedicated ' key since that comes up all the time while typing. but i do like having page up and page down.
not a fan of the keycaps. much happier after i replaced those.

That's fantastic. I thought about changing the switches from GATERON to Cherry MX, but I don't know if I can even make the switch between the switches, and I don't know which version of the Cherry MX to buy. I have the Clear at home, but I thought about the Silver for work.

On vacation now. Can share photo when I get home. But these were the keycaps. The caps i used for the space bar were a bit short but I could live with it.

Wondering how I could use the "break" key needed for some server configs?

It's sad but non-programmer users would find this keyboard frustrating. Manufacture's preset mapping wouldn't work for everyone's need obviously. Therefore, no 40% or even 60% keyboard should be sold without being programmable. Especially for 40% keyboard, the keys should be heavily mapped. If you want something affordable without functionality and convenience, go for it. If you want some thing small and minimize finger travel, I would recommend the Kumo which is on a Kickstarter campaign at the moment.
