A lot of off-the-shelf keyboards offer all that, minus the bluetooth or combo. Take a look at the Varmilo VB87M, it doesn't have RGB LEDs, just single colour. Alternative is the GON NS NerD TKL, but you should approach that with caution.

Why the caution? I was thinking about building my first board and was looking at that.

The cost of a fully assembled NerD TKL is $475 USD, according to the GON website. That's very, very expensive, even for an enthusiast-oriented product that appeals to a niche market. The board doesn't come with its own keycaps, so the cost quickly stacks up. If you're absolutely sure it's what you want, it's perfectly okay to buy one, but it never hurts to think twice before making such a costly purchase.

Just adding to Zenix's comment, its not mainly the price, as Gon is putting it together using his own time so he's charging for that; its about his current affairs or problems. He currently has quite a lot of orders he hasn't completed yet ranging from months to a year over and longer. I don't know the reason to it. With current new orders, its not going smoothly either from the feedback I've read from a number of people. Adding to that, his time scale is about 1-2 months to put it together for you if you plan to get any of his built kits. I'm told if you get anything from his site, get them as parts and build it up yourself.

Concerning Drop + Invyr Holy Panda Switches.
Are people not incorrect saying the stem have the legs "broken off" when in fact the stem was just an incomplete casting? When taking the switch apart to lube, there are no pieces of the "broken" stem legs inside the housing. So how did the stem legs become "broken?"

When will my DROP + REDSUNS GMK RED SAMURAI KEYCAP 1800 SET arrive? I've looked at my transactions page and it says it's estimated to be shipped *August 30th?!* That's 44 days from now! I don't want to wait too long, but I want to know if this is an error or if this is true? If it is an error, please let me know, if it is true, why is this so? What is the cause for it to take so long? Please let me know as I am very interested, thank you.

Just curious, do you guys ship worldwide and how much is the shipping fee? (estimated is fine) I'm not worried about custom fee because that's just what have to be paid.

High pitched whine on CTRL?
Recently I've noticed a high pitched whine coming from my Drop CTRL if I have the LEDs turned on at all. It's quiet but clearly noticeable and is driving me crazy. I had assumed it was a USB issue so I tried both ports on the CTRL but no change. I tried different ports on my PC but no change. I was using a Custom cable so went and tried the USB cable that came with the keyboard but the whine was still there. Anyone else have this issue?

CTRL making weird high pitched noise when lights are on.
I just noticed (when I put my computer to sleep and could only hear the keyboard) that when the lights are on, the keyboard is emitting a very high pitched whine-like noise. It sounds almost like this, but with a higher pitch and not as loud as the video makes it seem.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJxlNDliSUs Questions: -Is this a normal occurrence for CTRL boards, or could I have received a defective one? -If you HAVE experienced it, how did you fix it? Also worth noting... My USB port should definitely be generating sufficient power. I've had multiple other RGB boards connected, and have never experienced this issue.
