I'm updating my workstation setup as follows: one monitor for two systems, a gaming pc and a macbook, with one mouse and one keyboard.
Now, the monitor and the mouse are a settled choice (a Dough f.k.a. Eve Spectrum and my current mouse + a Magic trackpad) but there's a huge question mark over the keyboard choice and I'm asking for your help. There's no need for multidevice since the monitor works as an hub, but i'm looking for a 65% mech with low profile caps and muffled switches.
The main doubt is about the layout, there are keyboards out there with mixed MS/OSX layout?
Thank you guys!🙏🏻
Would there be any interest in an iPad Keyboard Configurator App?
This is my first post here but I’ve been using and enjoying the Drop CTRL keyboard for over 2 years now. Since about 2018 I’ve been moving my workflow to an iPad Pro. It’s mostly mild PDF editing, word docs, photo editing, and basic video editing, so i didn’t need a full desktop/laptop anymore for what i was doing. Now i’ve fully committed to working on an iPad. I have a proper setup with the iPad center stage.
But this is isn’t a post about me working on an iPad, it’s whether or not there’s interest in an iPad app Keyboard Configurator?
I realize the audience for it is extremely niche, but perhaps with enough interest Drop could make it happen.
Let me know!
Is the Drop Keycap club worth it? I am not a user who frequently buys stuff from drop except when something like the LOTR collaboration comes up.
If the club offers good discount, is it worth it for a user like me? please let me know thanks
I demand PREMIUM packaging for my PREMIUM keycaps. When I receive keycaps in simple, environmentally-friendly, minimalist packaging, it makes me wretch with bilious rage. How dare you, good sirs! This is a slap to the face, and it will not stand!
I insist, nay, stipulate that henceforth, any keycaps I buy be ensconced in a diamond-encrusted golden chalice, then draped in velvet, and carried through the streets to me in a litter, attended to by a full military honor guard! And they should be followed by a procession of war elephants, classically-trained dancers, and serenaded by a chorus of the very factory workers who produced the caps. Oh, and some tanks to escort them! Moar tanks = moar PREMIUM.
Plastic baggies! Hmph! What am I supposed to do with those - easily recycle them and the tiny box they shipped in?! Did I fall asleep and wake up in the time of Charlemagne?
Option in the Mech build for wireless or Bluetooth, I got an ENTR keyboard but can not use it with my setup because I know I will damage the USB connector. I do not have a desk and just game from my couch, so no stable area for the keyboard to rest. So a Bluetooth or wireless option would be great thanks.
Preonic + Planck + 3d printed Keyboard Case for a Mega Ortho Keyboard
Keyboard enthusiasts and known to be creative DIY-ers and for good reason. For me, and for most of us into mechanical keyboards, half of the enjoyment comes from putting together a keyboard from all the parts as much as using it afterwards. Experimenting with different mods, 3d-printing custom cases, and mixing up different switch parts are naturally a part of the hobby. After browsing some awesome keyboards to feature on our site, we stumbled upon this amazing build from u/MomonaBoy. He combined both a Planck and Preonic into this amazing battle station keyboard that I've never seen before.

AM AGA by Angry Miao
Crazy Designers here. The last few months have been hectic with the upcoming release of our Angry Miao CYBERBLADE wireless earbuds, but we also haven't been sitting still when it comes to keyboards. Today I'll introduce the latest thing we're working on: AM AGA.
So far, we have two keyboard styles in our lineup, namely CYBERBOARD, which has gone through several iterations, and AM HATSU, a wireless split ergo keyboard. For the last year or so, we have been thinking about what the next AM keyboard should look like. We have shared some drafts of 65% keyboards on our Discord channel, but those weren't really up to your tastes.

One of the main points of criticism was that they simply didn't have the same presence as other Angry Miao products. We always stress that we want to make products that are valuable and meaningful to people, and definitely don't want to turn Angry Miao into a...

Created a typing tester for fun 🤗 want some inputs
Hello friends from drop,
I used monkeytype for a while and really loves it, especially love its typing rule and interactions. The site got so many great features but I only played one or two so far for a long time. I then decided to create a simplified version and adding some my customized things. So now when I got new keyboards, I just use this typing tester to play. just want to share it here if you also like it lol.
Welcome to try it out here 🤗
The project repo is here: https://github.com/gamer-ai/eletype-frontend
It is open sourced and welcome to give inputs! I am also working on some other new features that I will launch later.
I purchased the kit from Drop and I really like my Kinesis TKO. The other day, it just stopped turning on. No power or anything. I tried multiple cords, computers, methods, etc. It is dead. Suggestions?
As I learned the lazy way (buying an MT3 kit and putting it on my old keyboard), some Corsair keyboards have 6.5u spacebars and none of the MT3 kits come with or have kits containing that size spacebar. So I went looking for alternatives to fill the space with something nicer than the original spacebar that would hopefully complement my MT3 keycaps a bit better.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any keycap profile pictures that obviously showed me the differences between spacebars for the usual suspects - Cherry, OEM, SA, MT3, etc. But I did find that I could order 6.5u spacebar kits in fun colours and SA profile from kprepublic. So I went ahead and did that and got a variety of colours for funsies and in the hope that one of them would be a nice complement to my kit.
So here are some pictures (apologies for the terrible quality) showing the original Corsair spacebar (which I believe is OEM profile), the MT3 spacebar, an MT3 R4 key and an SA spacebar. I have oriented the MT3...
This is the first keyboard I purchased from DROP for the second time . With my monthly DKC coupon, it only cost me $46! I paired it with queen switches and DROP MT3 Dusk keycaps. Out of the box it's a great board and sounds amazing with DROP double shot ABS.
