Pre-Production Sample

more_vert
We received a couple of the pre-production samples of the SHIFT last week. This is one of the key milestones for getting the keyboard ready for mass production. Here is a side-by-side photo showing our original SHIFT design and the new updated one.

Our next steps are to update the firmware on the new SHIFT along with ensuring the various mechanical / electrical parts are to spec. I’m pretty excited about checking off this step and we will be updating as we hit more milestones. Let me know what you think in discussion!

I love it. This is like the FC980M. I won't use a full size keyboard for ergonomic reasons, but I would buy this in a heartbeat. Too bad I JUST bought the ALT. I like the second one much better.

Huge fan of the DROP ENTR (Halo Orange) as my home desktop keyboard. Looking forward to this release as I would love to get the same feel for my work keyboard, I need the 10Key extra for work needs. However, I have no need for all the RGB shenanigans (I'm old and a grumpy cotton-headed ninny-muggins). Worse case I'll just buy the Christmas tree one and turn everything off, but am interested if there be an option of an ala carte kit where I could choose to ignore the pieces I don't need and build myself?

My understanding is that the ENTR will not include RGB, only a simple white led backlighting.

@steven_schuhly, yep ENTR has only the white backlight, which is why it works for me. I've been using it for a while now and am very happy. I did end up ordering the SHIFT, which is winging its way on a freight truck to me as I type. I decided to pay the money and I can just ignore the color change function. Very excited to try it out as it has those lovely HALO True (see I learn!) switches.

Is there going to be any integration with iCue or Asus Aura? What about dedicated media keys, or at least ones through the function row?

Both the SHIFT and SHIFT High Profile were manufactured and sold. Currently the SHIFT High Profile is not in production, but the SHIFT is available for sale.
