Hey everyone, our vendor just reached out and let us know there was a miscommunication with availability and the inventory set aside for us no longer exists.
As a result, I've taken down the drop. Those of you that joined will not be charged for anything.

Any expectation for it to return?
Can anyone tell me what stablizers are on this board?

I owned a CM Storm QuickFire and some of the LEDs stopped working about 4 months in, didn't bother me much. Then the spacebar springs stopped pushing the bar up all the way and I had to trash the keyboard, not worth the price for how many issues it has with the build quality.
As someone who owns cm storm keyboard, the usb cable gets stiff and breaks in a matter or a year or two, so don't place much hope on a "braided cable"

I own 2 Quickfire Rapids and neither of their cables have had this issue in the last couple years. Is it particularly dry where you live?

On the contrary, it's particularly humid. I'm not sure if related to the issue, but the keyboard is one of the first tkl quickfire Rapids available, early model? so probably the quality in the materials improved over time. The plate on mine also got rusty overtime but I believe that's due to humidity. The cable is removable so if it diea after 2 years is not a big deal.
Greens in a minimal, sturdy case for ~115€ incl. Taxes and shipping to Germany? I'm in! Weird to see that Double sided USB type A cable though...

I've contacted support about this but I wanted to reiterate this directly to you.
I ordered this to be delivered to the UK, but did not realise that it would take two and a half weeks for the order to be dispatched. I also assumed that the $33 shipping must include import duties, as the similar shipping figures on amazon and ebay include import duties.
I couldn't find any of this information by browsing the site itself, but only through a reply from customer support where they provided links. I'm out of the country from 30th March to the 3rd May, and won't be able respond to the request to pay import duty. The order will then be returned to you for refund after three weeks of being held at customs.
I want to cancel my order and be given a full refund. I am not happy to wait for customs to return the product and to be denied to be refunded $33 in postage costs. I'm now aware from links provided by email that orders cannot be cancelled once the drop is complete, but it seems unlikely that the original vendor has yet dispatched their order to your warehouse, and you will have to amend your order with them. If that means the drop price is not allowed by them, then I imagine the other four buyers orders will also have to be dropped.
I'm sure it's in both our interests to resolve the issue before the order is shipped for your warehouse. I consider the lack of information on your site to be grossly misleading and I will go to considerable effort to contest the payment with paypal and visa if you don't want to resolve this amicably.
if anyone on the edge of this one, love for you to help make the drop happen.
Clears have a peak of 95cn. Actuation is lower on greens. So clears feel like a car that's braking hard, greens feel like a heavy truck operating normally.
Mufti
Where are you getting that actuation is lower? This shows is being higher for greens. http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/mechanical-keyboard-guide
It might be higher if you bottom out clears but the bump is pretty sharp so I rarely bottom out the switches.
HappySkitty
Clears - https://deskthority.net/wiki/Cherry_MX_Clear Tactile force 65 cN Actuation force 55 cN Peak force ca. 95 cN
Greens - https://deskthority.net/wiki/Cherry_MX_Green Actuation force 80 cN
They're just completely different switch mechanisms. Clears peak higher than green, so if you bottom out keys (which a heavy typist tends to do); They will feel more stiff. You'll feel a heavy friction or braking at the end of every press, which tends to be more noticeable then the linear actuation of the green. Though it requires more force to begin movement; there's no ramp to a peak, nor does the actuation raise to the force of the clears. Clears would only feel lighter than greens if you're softly typing, and never hit peak.
Lol, I miss read you first post , wasn't trying to be a dick
Amazon has this for $109.99 + prime shipping after $10 rebate ಠ_ಠ
i love the green switches on my pok3r, might get this so i can use a full-sized keyboard with greens
Q: I'm looking for key backlighting (which this board lacks), full-size with 104 keys, Cherry MX Green switches, in a reliable board, with a total price tag under $140 (board, tax, shipped). Does such a beast exist, or am I wasting my time? I know the Greens are rarer, but this search has been nuts.

yeah full sized, not a tk
Jschin
Varmint has has a full size drop on right now, there's more than just the tk version. Smart ass
I own this. I haven't compared prices but I can tell you I like it a lot. This keyboard is my daily driver at work. w/green switches
I have another variant of the CM (Quickfire TKL Stealth) with greens. Got it about a year and a half ago. The build quality far surpassed what i had expected out of CM. Still going strong at home. Would recommend greens if you happen to be a fan of the old school buckling spring sound. To my ears, this comes closest to sounding like the IBM Model M.
Not great if you are in a open office environment,though :)
dang i was super interested in this exact model.... like two years ago! i have too many keyboards now... -__- sorry MD, not this time
Wouldn't mind a keyboard of this size that was back-lit and/or had nicer caps. This one presents cheaply.
Nice keyboard, but the drop is still to much money. You can still find it cheaper.
I have one of these, thinking of getting a second for work since MX White switches seem pretty hard to find. Not sure my coworkers will be too happy about it, though...
I am so sick of these not coming with any lay out choices.
Come on folks let's give this another go, this is the best deal around for a green switch kb
I love the greens on my pok3r. might just buy this keyboard and put on the pbt keycaps i have laying around in order to get a full keyboard with green switches
Do you guys think that one can type faster on greens than blues?
snapsitsthekorean
Depends on what you prefer. I find I type more accurately on switches that require more actuation force, but some people find that higher actuation force tiring when using those keyboards for a long period of time.
Some love it, some hate it. You are probably less likely to accidentally hit the wrong keys, though.
Ugh, green switches
Why is this keyboard NOT available with ISO layout? It's really a pity... WASD keyboards are obscenely expensive (counting with shipping costs) but it seems the only option we have for a mx-green ISO keyboard atm.
A guy who calls himself Bathroom Epiphanies on the internet makes replacement controllers for these that make them fully programmable and compatible with easyAVR or TMK. They are 35 bucks shipped worldwide, so maybe that is of interest to some people.
I love green switches and have been looking for a KB that didn't charge such a premium for them, but that "gamer" font is just terrible. 110 for the KB then 30 for keycaps. I might as well pay the premium and get a WASD
I would join if it didn't have those terrible key caps. I've already ordered enough boards this week with shit font.
