2020 Drop Alt Key stuttering?

more_vert
Hi there, I recently acquired a Drop Alt keyboard this year (2020), and I recently notiiced that sometimes I get key stutters when typing the letter "I" (I left the one intentionally in this post because it just happened as I wrote this). I tested this by pressing only that key and space and managed to get a stutter within an iinterval of spaces (happened again). Has anyone else experiienced this (again)? Any ideas? This happens on multiple computers so its not specific to an OS. I remember this this happening with another key as well but I clearly use it less often and noticed iit (again) less.

My "i" key does the same thing and thought I was just hitting it perfectly were it misfires. It doesn't really do it alot but it does happen. What switch are you using? (Just curious)

I think they are gateron clears? Whatever came with the alt. So far reseating fixed it.
Have you tired using a different switch in that position? Or cleaning out the hot swap socket? You can try reflashing the board, there might be a firmware update.

It started happening again. Could it be a defective switch? Defective board?
Can't tell without pictures
