Is this drop keyboard defective?

more_vert
With no way of knowing what causes this, my drop shift will simply stop responding. This is a used drop shift, but it has been hardly used though. Once or twice, it appears that a key which has last been held may simply start to repeat itself as the keyboard stops to send more input, possibly including that the key is no longer being held down? other times, it simply fails to respond any further. Pressing anything on the keyboard, despite that RGB is still going, does absolutely nothing. I opened switch hitter (small program) and it doesn't register anything going on at all. Wondering if anyone thinks they may know the problem. I bought this used from facebook but apparently this is far more problematic than thought. The ONLY thing I need to do is disconnect and reconnect the keyboard, but y'know this is kind of a problem. Otherwise, I cannot tell that the keyboard has been even touched just once. But I mean something is a bit off. Is the keyboard itself a bit off?

Hmmmm, when I restart the computer, it never saves the LED layout. Like if I press FN +A or D it will just go back to the default wave when I turn the computer off. Anyone think that this may be indicative of a problem?

Ctrl button activates Caps lock?
I just purchased a drop alt and noticed that the “ctrl” key activates caps lock and that the caps lock itself doesn’t do anything, really confused as to how that works. Is it some software/hardware issue?

Keyboard/key cap compatibility
Hi, I am new to the drop brand, and I really love the MT3 Dasher key cap. Are the Drop Shift Mechanical Keyboard — Full-Size 1800 Layout (99 Key - in cherry Mx blue rgb) and the MT3 Dasher Keycap Set, Hi-Profile compatible? These items are not cheap, so I prefer checking with the experts first. Thank you in advance for your help!

The Drop ctrl keyboard has a specified height of 36 mm. Is that the height of the top of the rear end keycap or the height of the case (with or without angled feet?)?

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.
