Pre-Order Date : Drop, January 14th, 2021
I want to provide support to relevant issues that are happening in the world. Therefore, all designer profits from the first month of sales will be donated to the Black Lives Matter Support Fund through blacklivesmatter.com. Social injustice in America has recently become a larger issue than ever before, and I believe that contributions from the sale of this set will help the campaign immensely.
When will the pre-order end?
Drop recently changed how GMK group buys are managed. Instead of the group buy lasting only a month, Drop will keep the product running in perpetuity on...
I'm writing this post to gauge how others would feel if the current CTRL/ALT PCB's where updated to support 5-pin switches and potentially even holes for PCB mount stabilisers. I understand that if both 5-pin switch capabilities and PCB mount stabilisers where made available for the PCB there would need to be slight modifications made to the case of the particular keyboard, i will elaborate on my thoughts on this topic below. I have also heard issues with north facing LED's and getting some sort of interference when it comes to using certain switches with Cherry profile keycaps such as GMK, if anyone has encounter this please share in the comments below as i have personally not faced this issue on my CTRL.
I would love to see a new PCB be offered on the drop store for the CTRL and ALT that can be bought separately that supports both 5-pin switches and PCB-mount stabilisers. Extra cases and switches are offered as a stand alone product on the Drop Store and i feel like...
DROP View - Monitor That Matches Fit and Finish of DROP Mech Boards?
TLDR: DROP should make a high res monitor that matches the ALT/CTRL/SHIFT boards in design language + fit and finish. Just drop a good pre-existing panel in an aluminum enclosure with that signature LED acrylic strip and a controller board that doesn't lock you into the Apple ecosystem to control more than 4k. If LG can get $1500 for a crappy plastic monitor, and Apple wants $6k for 6k, there has to be some in between market.
More wishful thinking:
Has anyone else out there been looking for external monitors for WFH and realized that there are essentially three camps, and that you don't fall into any of them?
Camp 1: Crap you'd find in Office Depot. They probably don't list their resolution because their customer base probably doesn't know or care what that means unless they saw it in operation. Cheap, but not as cheap as they should be.
Camp 2: Gamer monitors. Seemingly prioritizing nothing but refresh rate with a resolution that is almost certainly at or below 1440p. Almost...
【GB】MelGeek MG Ember ABS Doubleshot Custom Keycap Set Round2
In the underground city of Ember, the population has flourished for years under the glimmering light of the all-powerful generator. However, once the generator starts to fail, things become chaotic fast.
Inspired by the 2008 film City of Ember, the MG Ember keycap set recreates the glory and heartbreak of the shadowed metropolis.
Sculpted in the all-new MG profile (a high-profile offering similar to Topre’s hi-profile), the keycaps have a wide surface area and plenty of curve.
And for the Round 2 group buy , we add one more colorway , Ember- Aurora to the keycap set .
Ember- dusk , Ember- Dawn , Ember-Aurora for your choice .
Produced by Melgeek
Designed by Muni
ABS plastic material
Compatible with Cherry MX switches and clones
Made in China
If you prefer a darker look, opt for the Dusk Kit; or go for the Dawn kit for a brighter aesthetic.
Group buy starts on 16th.January 2021, ends on 31st.January 2021...
I accidently spilled water on my Drop Alt last night. I quickly unplugged it and shook out/dabbed as much water as I could. I then took a blow dryer and blasted it for a good minute and then left it over night to dry.
As of now it seems to have no issues and all LED's work fine.
I did however notice that when I unplug and then re-plug it back in that there is a little orange light that flashes on the front LED strip. From, what i'v read this means that there's a connectivity error? Could this be from the spill? Everything is working fine so I'm not sure where the connectivity issue is coming from? Maybe it's always been there and I'm just seeing it now...
I've been wanting to get a Numpad that I could put away when not in use, but I couldn't find any that would look good in my setup. Would there a possibility that DROP would make a separate Numpad with the same styling as the DROP keyboards (both normal and high profile).
