The most underrated Massdrop feature
Massdrop is an ever changing e-commerce site with a load of features. For someone that is new to the site, it is easy to get lost in the discussion posts of products. It is vital to ask questions about a product that you are about to purchase, but sometimes those questions do not get a response. Pictured below is where the "search" feature is located when you are looking at the discussion of a specific product (the yellow box). Use it to search for keywords that are pertinent to your question. It is very likely that someone else has already asked the same question and gotten feedback. The search feature can also be used to sort through all the posts that have been created by fellow community members. Highlighted by the yellow box in the image below. "Search" can also be used to sort through product reviews. Notes: For anyone that is curious, I am using the Dark Reader Google Chrome extension to change the colors of the Massdrop page.

How to Work (and Thrive) From Home
Wake up, put on sweats, grab a coffee, start working. Sound familiar? For some, working from home is nothing new. For others, it’s a complete 180. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, we’re here to help you get the most out of your day, from the way you work to the gear you use. Here are some tips we hope you’ll find helpful. Create a Dedicated Space While it might be tempting to work from your couch (or bed), resist the urge. Creating a dedicated workspace will help you stay focused. We recommend picking an area with low foot traffic, preferably by a window or a plant. Finding the right listening environment can also help you get in the zone. If you’re craving that concert-like atmosphere, we recommend our open-back Sennheiser HD 58X headphones (but be careful at high volume, unless you want to give your roommates a concert, too). If you prefer to listen loud with no limits, try our Meze 99 Noir closed-back headphones. Get Comfortable (and Ergonomic)...

Vegas and the $20 sandwich trick
This is the first part of what I plan to be a multi post thread where I talk about some neat things about my favorite vacation destination, Las Vegas. The Setup When you get to your hotel, you'll line up at reception with the hundreds of other guests checking into the hotel. While waiting in line, take a $20 bill and triple-fold it so it's smaller than the size of your cards. Then "sandwich" the bill between your ID and credit card. The Gamble When you get to the front desk, they'll ask you for your ID and credit card. Hand them the sandwich, they'll split the cards up, note the $20 bill and nonchalantly leave it on the reception desk. They'll look up your booking and confirm the standard details about the check-in dates, room preferences, etc. Acknowledge that it's all correct, and then ask "Are there any complimentary upgrades available?" They'll acknowledge your request and say they'll see what they can do for you. The Suspense At this point, you'll probably see...

Emergency/Survival Kit
Hey everyone, I'm about to embark on a fun project to build a 3 (or 5?) day survival kit for my household in Berkeley, CA. The primary reason for this is to use when "the big earthquake" hits. I was wondering if people wanted to give me suggestions on cool stuff to get/include in the kit. Here are some initial thoughts: 1) I'm generally price insensitive (within reason). I wouldn't be surprised if this kit ends up costing $2500. 2) I'm against having a firearm (I accept there are some practical reasons for this, it's just not my thing.) 3) I plan to include a sat-phone in the kit 4) I want to plan for mobility, i.e. have the kits in large containers, but also have backpacks in there so I can pack up and move if needed 5) I'm thinking 2 separate kits in 2 parts of the house, in case one becomes inaccessible when parts of my home collapse. 6) We have 2 adults and 2-year-old at home. I've literally done zero research into this, going to start now, likely going to try to post...

How Massdrop Decides on New Communities
One of the most common questions we get is: “Can Massdrop launch an [insert name here] community?” With Hub, we wanted to create a space to have this conversation in an open environment, where all community members can provide their input. We’re looking forward to hearing from all of you about which communities you’d like to see most—and we’ll also be using Hub to test these out! With every community we add, we’ll learn something new that will help us do it faster and better the next time around. What makes a good candidate for a new community? Communities can really run the gamut, but each one should possess one or more of the following qualities: Communities requested by the members of Massdrop Communities we believe we can meaningfully help and grow Communities that can be split off from our existing communities New Communities Requested by Members Our members have a say in everything we do, so our top criteria for starting a new community is that it has been requested by you...

My original fidget spinner, and my new one!
This is a bearing I have had for the past 20 years. I've fidgeted millions of time with it. I always have to fidget with something. Or doodle when on the phone. It's just a bearing I picked up at university where I was studying Industrial Design (there was always lots of scrap stuff lying around); it's about 4 cm in diameter, 65 g, and is engraved as follow: 'Japan, Nachi, 6203'. I don't think it's a limited edition 😂 With time, I was able to achieve unbelievable spin times of 20 to 30 seconds 😂. Now, having just received the Giggle Hands fidget bought earlier here on Massdrop, I have to say, that's way more enjoyable than an old cranky raw bearing! Spins a lot longer, too! By the way I ordered three, and gave a purple one to my daughter, who seems to have inherited my tendency to fidget and doodle. In the weeks since I discovered spinners exist, thanks to Massdrop, I already have developed an obsession about spinners and have now about half a dozen on...

First time on Drop since it was MassDrop: Mech & Audio only?
Hi all, today I came to Drop.com for the first time since it was MassDrop.com. I've been looking around and it seems like the site has narrowed its focus to mechanical keyboards and audio gear. Is this accurate? I know I bought some "everyday carry" items and used to follow camera gear, watches, pens, knives, and some other things. Not a problem if that's the case. I'm mostly interested in mechanical keyboards but just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something, or if the other stuff split off to another website. Thanks.

Once upon a time, you could buy watches like this Seiko Flightmaster right here on MD. But that was back when they were a cool website.

Who is this website for anyway? Seriously question.
My friend that is a self-proclaimed true audiophile tells me that Drop is not the place to get good deals on audiophile grade headphones. He tells me that headphones never really go out of date, and that the 2 hand market is the best way to go. As well as for me a PC gamer for 20 years I've gone though 4 keyboard over that time. I've never thought that I needed a new keyboard ever time I've upgraded the rig. Seriously who is keeping this site afloat? Can you maintain a website with only fidget spinner keycaps? Side note There is two thing I wish I saw in time that drop exclusive jacket with nasa on it and that titanium measuring tape. Sad about missing out on those.
