So we've been waiting over a month and a half now, all the while the keyboard had snuck onto Amazon, and now we're getting delayed a week? That's pretty disappointing

Amazon has been selling this brand of keyboards for some time. However, none of their options have included brown switches, or Gaterons of any color, let alone Cherry. The versions on Amazon use either Kailh or "Outemu" (house brand) blues and blacks, with the occasional white, red, or green.

They have (and have had for the last month and a half): - Outemu switches - Kailh -MX Whites, Greens, Reds, Blues (not in stock anymore/can't find link anymore)
Which means they had the exact same options we had save for Gaterons and a switch or two of Cherry. That really doesn't make up for much of anything. Honestly had I saw them earlier on Amazon I would never have got from Massdrop

Right, like I said, there are no Cherry options for this keyboard on Amazon, and no browns of any switch type. Meanwhile, this drop offered Gateron switches and brown switches. If you didn't look around beforehand to check what the overlap was between this drop and Amazon or other stores, that's on you.

Regardless, it's not Massdrop's responsibility to tell you what your other purchasing options are.

You're right it's not Massdrop's responsibility to tell what our options are, but it is Massdrop's responsibility to make sure that the THOUSANDS of orders are done first and the manufacturer doesn't sell on Amazon before they fufill our orders. Especially since it's been 6+ weeks.

Like I said, these keyboards were being sold on Amazon long before this drop came around. There's little to be gained in assuming that we're the victims of some kind of conspiracy, just because there's a minor delay on the production of our particular batch.
