I'd love to get a drop with the new retool switches that were supposed to fix the chatter.

I want some alps switches for the DIY project, but they're a bit expensive in my country. Could you launch this drop again? Ps. Are they quiet-click or not?

I didn't realize I was getting 200 keys. That's enough to fill a full size keyboard and a tenkeyless!
I bought the quiet key version and used them to replace the mushy POS keys that came in my Dell AT101W. (The keys in the AT101W were all black, for reference.)
The most difficult part of the replacement process was definitely desoldering and removing the old keys. It took me about 6 feet of desoldering wick to remove all the solder. In addition, the metal leads on the original switches are bent over, meaning they are physically holding the PCB in towards them. So, you have to bend the leads straight either before desoldering or after. Either way you will have to heat up the leads while bending them in order to liquefy any existing/remaining solder, and I did pull up a couple of the solder pads halfway trying to do this. I lifted the leads up after desoldering. I'm not sure which way is better, but anyway, just be careful during this step.
Also, when soldering the new keys to the PCB, make sure the PCB IS FLAT up against all the keys. If there is any bend in the PCB, it won't want to sit flush with the keys, and you might find yourself halfway through soldering all the keys and suddenly the PCB alignment is out of whack (vertically).
Despite the niggles in the replacement process, I'm very satisfied with my Maitais Dell AT101W. The new switches are very springy and tactile, more tactile than Cherry Blues, Browns, or Clears. The level of sound is about the same as the Browns, maybe slightly less.
Overall, the Maitais Quiet Keys are fun switches with a bouncy feel that Cherrys don't match. Would recommend.

Got my switches today! Please reduce the size of the boxes next time, had to pay a large custom fee due to the amount of excessive packaging. More info here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Massdrop/comments/2cx656/hey_massdrop_stop_shipping_boxes_inside_bigger/
