I'm guessing that all the users complaining about the shipping timeframe do not participate in the mechanical keyboard community. I'm fine with the shipping. Thanks Massdrop for bringing this back.
I'm very surprised that we aren't seeing the same thing in the MK community. Carbon SA isn't going to ship for about a year, and yet the order quantity is crazy.
Availability would be the main reason. You can't just pop over to Amazon to buy SA Custom sets and get them shipped to you in 2 days. That being said, as a proud member of the MK community, waiting is no issue, and I'm in this drop.
Very good point. There's still basically no competition for GMK or SP, so people are willing to pay and wait.
Luckily more competition is starting to show up. While they have some QC issues, Maxkey produces lower cost SA sets within a 2 month time-frame as opposed to the backlog SP has going, and I'm surprised no one goes through Tai-Hao for group buys* (I've seen some records that they have done them in the past).
That's a good point, although technically speaking you can't jump on Amazon and buy a HD6XX specifically either. Either way, if you get into the MK hobby you will get accustomed to waiting.
I'm not a fan of SA, but I still love Maxkeys. Anything to increase availability. If SP has to drop their prices then it will eventually trickle down to GMK as well.
