Just got mine, it's indeed the refreshed model. Keyboard itself is pretty nice, but where's English manual and where's the driver software?

Despite the initial Drop stating that this would be delivered in late October, I was pleasantly surprised to have received the keyboard today. It's definitely a different feel from mechanical switches with a very smooth but tactile actuation--honestly, I am digging this a lot. Below is a photo of the keyboard but with the keycaps replaced with another set:

Does anyone know what the "M" with the circle around it indicates (it is side printed on the Pause/Break key)--I see that pressing Fn + Pause/Break turns on the right most indicator light, but I'm not sure what it's for. Edit: Actually, in retrospect, it may stand for "Modifier" and reflects when the keyboard as been re-programmed using their software. Although, as a previous user stated, it does not seem like the programmable software is available for these 2019 keyboards.

Got mine today. This is the second Plum 87 I've bought from Drop and it's absolutely my favorite keyboard at any price. For anyone wondering, this is the new design: USB-C, the case is slimmer, the keycaps are nicer (doubleshot PBT, better profile, better legends), and the switches are the new (and presumably improved) design. Two things I'd like to mention: 1) The pictures for the drop are totally inaccurate, but since what you get is actually newer and nicer than what's pictured, this isn't a terrible thing. 2) Despite these switches' claimed 35-gram resistance, they feel nothing like the older model I have. Those switches are WAY lighter and squishier. The new switches are much snappier and springier. They feel closer to the 45-gram EC switches in the ABKO Hacker I use at work. I could see a small number of people preferring the old switches for all-day typing, but for the hobbyist it's MUCH easier to swap keycaps on the new switches. Hope that helps! @dinhhieu @TuCZnak @Duff1321

Here's everything that was in the box (please ignore the aftermarket keycaps):

how about the stabilizer did they use cherry stabs or their own stabs?

They're using the same Costar/Costar-style stabs as the previous design, and they're still the hardest part of swapping keycaps. The stems are much more keycap-friendly than before, though.

Just received this keyboard from the last drop yesterday. I'm very happy with the feel of the key board. And it sounds great and not too noisy, good for working in my office environment. But I do have one major complaint. It doesn't come with any media (volume, play/pause) keys pre-programed. And I cannot seem to find a software to configure the newer 2019 model at https://www.nizkeyboard.com/download/. The older software for version v1.1.33 doesn't recognize the keyboard. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/lridb6fhsj9lw9x/AABWfqv6OYPTPyGygPgCa6oJa/87%20EC%20pro%20(Non%20Ble)?dl=0&subfolder_nav_tracking=1. They advertise it with "Multimedia keys" but I cannot get them to work. I appreciate any help to get meida keys on the 2019 model, thanks.

Almost pulled the trigger on this but decided to buy the 82 key 75% version from their website instead. I just cannot do TKL nor white plastic case, even if it costs $30 less.

For those of you who find 35g to be too light and plan to take advantage of the springs that are included to raise the weight to 45g, be aware that it's not the same experience. I've been using this straight at 35g for about two years and I recently installed the springs for a change of pace, but I'm finding that the springs completely messes with the experience and messes with my mechanics. I make a lot more errors and it's not due to the added 10g. There's something about the keystroke that messes me up. I have no such issues when using a 45g Cherry MX Red board. I love the 35g weight of this board when I'm doing a lot of extended typing. If I'm doing something in which I pause a lot, other keyboards are better.

Pretty sure it will be the 2019 model. At least that's what I received from ordering the keyboard here in June.

Cool, thanks for the heads up! In that case ordering this one, a pretty good drop for once.
