Got this off the Mech Keys super sale. I had tried to get them on the Drop previously and it did not get funded. This keyboard is amazing. Five stars. Switches are smooth and stable, keyboard feels quality, nice size. Great buy.

Anyone know if this is using the retooled switches? I really want to join the drop but I don't know if its the retooled ones or not...

Reporting in with the same issues as everybody else with the Matias keys. In my case it's the N key that often double or triple presses itself. Love the Matias keys otherwise, they're both silent comfortable with just the right amount of strength required to activate them. I'm quite disappointed the quality is so low.

A lot of ALPS style switches have issues with repeating, but if you know how to reset them, they'll usually behave afterwards. If you're still having problems with repeating keys, try pressing the switch down and jiggling the switch in a clockwise fashion. Another trick is to press down with pressure from the upper edge of the switch then press again with pressure from the left edge. Continue and do this for all four sides several times. Usually this will get repeating ALPS keys to stop repeating. I've found that some ALPS are susceptible to vibration and being stored "improperly". I had a board that was fine and had zero repeating issues. I kept it on its side for a few months. When I brought it back out, it was repeating like crazy. I had to retune a bunch of keys. I also sold an ALPS board that was working perfectly before I shipped it and when it was received, a lot of the keys were repeating. My ALPS boards all do this and they work fine after retuning and continue to be hassle free so long as I'm still using them daily. The trouble starts back up only after I put them away. Not all of them are this quirky though.

It is really a pity, tactility wise it is such a nice construction.

Switch on the "R" key died after 3 months, replaced with a spare that came with it... switch on the H key died a month later. Binned it.

Seems exactly the same to me.

I have some questions regarding aftermarket stuff. Mainly:
Can I swap out the case for another 60% case that I can buy online? Are keycaps for Matias switches easy enough to come by?

I own 2 V60s 1. V60 uses the same PCB as poker, so most 60% aftermarket cases will fit. In some cases, screw holes don't line up correctly but the case will still fit. Also V60 has dip switches so not all cases will have cutouts for them, but dip switches are common amongst 60% boards so you'll have an easy time finding cases. Just look up "tex 60% cases" if you're curious. 2. Matias switches are ALPS clones, so you can easily find keycaps online, but your selection isn't as big compared to cherry stems.

Just a question for the OP running this Group Buy;
Where are the Datacomp Alps switches?
Sorry, I can not find them in the buying selection list. The only other clicky alps switches available, are the Xiang Min (XM) switches.

What is clickier and lighter to type on? The XM or the Matias clickY keys? I’ve typed on Matias but never heard of the XM alps. Thank you

Wonder how do you use the arrow keys on the right hand side while the Fn key is also on the right hand side?? Never used this kind of keyboard, can someone enlighten me.

i have a KBParadise V60 (but with Cherry switches) and in it, there are arrow keys on both left and right hand sides. The keyboard also lets you swap the Caps Lock key out for another Fn key (via the dip switches on the back) so you can use either depending on your preference. I'm assuming this model also has the same functionality.

You press FN + ENTER, which puts those lower right keys into arrow mode. FN+ENTER again to cancel.
