I just ordered the KBDFANS ALL-IN-ONE 72-SWITCH TESTER and I was wondering if I'm gonna have to wait a couple months to receive it. If so that's fine I just need the closure really so I can start to forget about it, so when I come I can be surprised. if it's a pretty quick ship then cool I can be excited for the arrival.
After a few months using my Drop Ctrl, the Z key doesn't light up anymore. Is there a way to tell if the led is dead or something? I've tried restarting the board and also reflashing the firmware that I'm using but to no avail the led doesn't turn on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Definition: An fully customizable keyboard with unique abilities for layering key-functionality, switchable appearance, an ortho-linear layout, and replaceable parts with a high build quality. You can buy from indie brands, people in garages, and large companies, with both pre-built boards or the kits you see on Drop.
I spend over 40 hours weekly hammering on keyboards, and that's why I'm here figuring out how to make it more pleasant. To be honest, I feel the black hole sucking me in, and I'm about to fill a lot of stockings.
The Physical Components:
1. Bottom case
3. Switch plate
We start off with the bottom case, made of metal and acting as the housing for the keyboard. Just a metal bowl with a hole for the cable.
Into this we place the PCB, printed circuit board, which uses electricity to sense the button presses and run the backlight. This is screwed...
Introducing Drop Signature Series Keyboards : Round 1
Most of us got started in the mechanical keyboard hobby in the same way: we saw a beautiful keyboard and just had to have it. Asking “how do I get that?” always resulted in a convoluted epic quest. We’d need to scour mechmarket, group buys, and an obscure collection of vendor sites to gather components, while taking many months and costing a small fortune, all in pursuit of the “perfect build”.
While we admire this pursuit and feel it’s an integral part of the hobby, at Drop, our goal has always been to expand enthusiast communities. This comes from two approaches: creating innovative products that push the envelope on product development, and making those products increasingly accessible to the community. We’re proud of our previous innovations such as GMK’s first custom keycap colorways, the first scale-produced hotswap sockets, and the gorgeous MT3 profile keycaps. And while we will continue to innovate with interesting products like the 1800-layout SHIFT and gasket-mount...
