SA in 2024: Where does the high-profile king stand in the modern keyboard hobby?
In early 2021, I only had eyes for SA Godspeed. Raised in Florida across the bay from Cape Canaveral, I grew up watching space shuttle launches, and my dad’s life-long obsession with NASA, space and sci-fi quickly spread to me. At 27, I was introduced to Neil Armstrong, a personal hero, and was able to tell him the impact he had on me and my family. So on that fateful spring day when I walked into my IT department and told my coworkers that I was thinking of getting into mechanical keyboards, the first set I wanted to own was Godspeed. It took awhile, and I mean awhile for me to accumulate all the different versions of that set. It has three alphas (Solar, Lunar and Supernova), a few full alternates (Mito & Genespeed) and several alternate modifier sets including the transcendent Ares colorway. But several hundred dollars, and many months later, I had constructed a few keyboards all equipped with different versions of SA Godspeed. I made an Earth keyboard, a Mars, an Asteroid, a...
Hello, after long waiting i got this new pcb and went to configure it. So after doing so running mdloader it goes 60sec countdown and when i press FN+B just types .....bbbbb.bbb.b. etc. So it looks like on my pcb doesnt have the b button configured (becuase it types b instead dfu) to go to dfu mode hence i cant flash the pcb. Any other way to flash the board please? It should be on b by default as it seems...so i dont know what is the problem here. thanks
MT3 is great and all but after using MTNU I can never go back. When will Drop get MTNU? Drop has so many cool sets but at this point I’m not interested in any other profiles. Cherry, DCS, DXA, OEM, XDA, SA, etc all boring. MT3 was neat but it’s boring now too (and too tall). Hoping to spend boatloads of money here again sometime soon, but that won’t happen until Drop offers something interesting again like its own custom cap, MTNU, or another low profile sculpted keycap. e.g., I tried CannonKeys CXA and preordered SLK Dessau. Neither will be permanent use but at least they’re something different.
