When you want unique items like this and the only resolution is that I take a small refund and decorate my shelf with it or return it, neither of those seem like resolutions. Now instead of getting this cool keyboard I get the frustration of lending my money for 5 months, being teased with a non-working unit, and having to ship it out. This seems to be a trend.

drop just sent me an email to review this and i wanna reiterate what a piece of shit this is. it's just a rebranded version of an existing keyboard, the switches are scratchy, it's ultimately pretty useless. spend your money on something else if this runs again. seriously, these novel switches are not worth it, you can get this for cheaper on aliexpress. kbai!

I got one of these off the second-hand market and absolutely love the clicky switches. I was thinking of putting together a new board and was hoping to find something close to the feel of this. Of course, they won't be hall effect switches, but can anyone suggest anything similar? Should I be looking for something like blue alps?

I've had mine for about 2 years now and the wood started to warp and the screws on the back started to pop from the pressure. Im trying now to straighten the warped pieces and glue the together but its a 50/50 chance it'll work. Other than that never had issues with the switches or the LEDs, but keep in mind build quality on the wooden version is not very good at least mine isn't. I like how you can remove some of the wooden construction to make it stay flat on the desk and the LED mode settings are very cool you have a wide array of options there. Switches are acceptable not very clicky but satisfying none the less would prefer cherry's but they are not available, or they weren't 2 years ago. If anyone asked me I wouldn't recommend the wooden version. Hope I helped.

Received mine on march and this is already broken.... Also when I got this keyboard I've noticed that the keyboard wasn't even leveled so I had to put some padding on the lower right side of the feet so they wont shake each time I press on a key. Very disappointed in the quality of the board I was expecting a lot fore than this considering I payed over 170 including the arm rest. I didn't even use this harshly, especially since I didn't pay games for about half a year after I got the keyboard. I'm back to my old keyboard which i bought in 2012 and still working fine. I guess in terms of durability Cherrys are far superior.

Are any of these boards programmable? I'd want the 60%, ideally with the layout of a Poker 3.

Opinion on 61-key 2nd Rev. clicky version: Goods: Awesome materials. Switches are detachable from PCB. Switches can easily be downgraded to linear. Bads: Not able to remap Esc key. The remap tool is a joke and the producer is just not willing to work on it. For like 20% of keys click did not trigger the switch. I had to rebend all the click leaves into tactile mode. On closer inspection click mechanism is a joke. Often it doesn't push the switch stem, only makes a click. The part it is pushing against is a weak bit of plastic so no way it could be consistent. Should not be manufactured like that. Space switch has stiffer spring but otherwise it is same so it took more effort to balance. . Overall, this keyboard brings some fun but I do not recommend it to common people as out of the box it works surprisingly bad.
