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.

Electrostatic capacitive switches are a little faster than basic bitch Cherry and Cherry-esque switches, but it is a relatively close race. The OmniPoint switch in the Apex Pro TKL's are multiple times faster. That's the switch itself. All the other variables can easily make that not matter at all. For example- How your fingers rest above the key, how quickly you push the key, how much weight there is in the key press, how close the actuation point is, how fast the controller accepts and sends out the signal, how you are plugged into the computer. If I were after speed for gaming, the first component I would optimize, after the GPU (for the specific game) of course, would be the monitor. As LinusTechTips demonstrated a few years ago or so, the speed of your display matters a lot. We are talking up to several kills per game in your favor when playing an FPS game against someone of equal skill, if they are only gaming at 60hz and you're on the bleeding edge. So, there is a good excuse to use a high refresh rate display. If I had to put together a fast keyboard setup, though- I would probably just find the fastest gaming keyboard I could that supports plugging into a PS/2 port. PS/2 ports send a direct hardware interrupt to the CPU, so it is going to outdraw USB no matter what. The problem is that less motherboards support PS/2 these days, and companies selling keyboards have little to no incentive to mention support for it, given that keyboards have been using USB en masse since 1998. If the Apex Pro TKL supported PS/2, it would be a solid candidate. Me, myself, though? Right now? I wouldn't worry too much about the speed of the keyboard. I also wouldn't piss on Steelseries if they were on fire, though that is a discussion for another day.
