Preonic V3 stopped working?

more_vert
My recently acquired preonic V3 has bricked itself. I flashed custom firmware onto it, and when it started going haywire I flashed it back to default. However all of a sudden, my pc isn't registering that its even plugged in. It's not making sound when I plug it in, the LEDs aren't turning on, and hitting the reset button, my PC isn't even detecting the bootloader, it's not the cable, I have tested, I do not know what is going on, please help.

Same issue, mine just died after 4 months. Was using it as normal, went to the bathroom, came back, and it was no longer responding to any keypress, reset, computer swap, etc. Very sad, after I spent all that time designing a layout and coding it.

All I can say is that I had the same issue, twice; got my first preonic v3, and after one week, while I was using it, it went haywire for a couple of seconds and then it was completely dead. Drop was nice enough to send me a new pcb, which also died in the span of half a day (technically it still has sound, rgb and reset button working..) I can't deny the possibility that there is some issue on my side, but I never had any other issue with other peripherals, and online you do find multiple threads of people with preonic/planck pcbs dying out.

Why did Mass Drop change their name?
Remember when this website had a different name? Remember what it meant? Group orders = Cheaper. Mass= People Drop= Merchandise. This old model made Mass Drop a good deal. Want to know why they dropped the "Mass" out of their name? So, you get zero deals. They Dropped them. Group orders don't give you discount anymore. Now this is a regular thing and becoming more expensive than to just get the same keyboards from Amazon.
