I own a tenkeyless version of this and after 1 year 3 months, its still working great with no problems. All LEDs working and i usually play csgo on a 1-2hours daily basis.
For how much did people bought this one?
Mine still says active, but I was charged straight away. Mind, there were only three left after I got mine left in the august bazaar drop.
I ordered this a week ago and I've yet to be charged. The drop status in my transactions tab is still "active". Am I the only one getting this or is there something I've overlooked?

I ordered one. It sat in the Paid state for a while. I only waited 48 hours and opened a support ticket (since I ordered a KC60 in June and it is still "maybe going to ship in 30 days" ) I stated in the ticket that the Bazaar said it would ship within 48 hours, where's my order. It shipped the enxt morning (last Friday). UPS can only tell me that I ought to get it by Saturday and that it's no longer in New York... :-)
QC issues with this board is really holding me back from getting it, I own a stealth QF board which has no issue or whatsoever and a rapid-i which currently only has 7 LED working. Very disappointing tbh.
Have had 2 of these so far, the 1st one was DOA. Have had the replacement for about a month now, 2 LED's have died so far.
As other people mentioned, the QC of these keyboards is completely missing.
I'm wondering if my keyboard is defective: I use a KVM to switch between computers and the CM Storm doesn't register half the time when I switch computers and when it does register, there's a long delay before it becomes ready (20-30 seconds). No other keyboard I own has ever shown this behavior. I've tried it on several computers and it can take 5-6 tries and switching USB ports to get the keyboard to show up. Anyone else see problems with this keyboard? Google shows that it's a common issue with CM keyboard. I'm very disappointed about this.
Mine has just arrived. After the initial excitement died off, I realised that one of the switches is stuck (pops back out after several hits) and the keycap has broken off. Disappointing.
Gifted this board today, recipient loves it. Working great with no issues to report.
I'm sorry to have to report that mine arrived with a bad key switch. It was sticking badly, which was apparent in the first ten seconds after I opened the box. I didn't feel like returning it for service, so I scavenged a key switch out of my Cherry key switch tester and soldered it in - fully violating the warranty in the process.
At this point, I'm disappointed with the quality control. I found this key with a cursory inspection, the factory should have done the same.
I don't know yet if I'll like the keyboard. I've been primarily using IBM Model Ms for decades and the Cherry Green seemed the closest pick. We'll see how it goes now that I've got it working.

That is one nice looking board. Which keycaps are those?

Thanks, I don't know if you can get the blue anymore I had to get them on ebay for 80. But I freakin love em. EDIT: looks like they decided to start producing them again. http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=773 and for other colors: http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=search_list&s[search]=+Bi-Color+PBT+Double+Shot+Keycap+Set+%28Vortex%29&s[title]=Y&s[short_desc]=Y&s[full_desc]=Y&s[sku]=Y&s[match]=all&s[cid]=0 They are really thick and even make the greens require less force hence why I needed green vs blues for these caps and my typing style. I came from a rx-9000 with blues for reference.

I would also like to make that switch....it made me sad when I saw it drop the DAY AFTER i placed this order :(

I would send in a request to support, but do it quickly before the Stealth drop ends (two days from now). They actually (after a few emails -- I think they are kind of swamped) let me cancel one order after I placed an order for the Stealth with greens. That was exceptional customer service, IMO.
When does this ship?
they're cheaper on newegg for 79.99
Mr.Wilson
@Mr.Wilson -- that's not true, I just looked. Yes, you can buy the Cherry MX *Blue* switch version at Newegg for that price, but not the *Green*. Be careful, the Devil's in the details! I thought I was getting a good deal on a mechanical keyboard with "Blue" switches... Turned out the weren't Cherry MX, but a Chinese knockoff..
Can I ask something guys ,how much is the shipping inside US ?Because for Europe it is ridiculous.Around 30% of keyboard value
I already have this board, with greens, and can confirm it's amazing. Greens are amazing; I can't stand blues anymore; they feel like they have no substance. The keycaps are kind of ugly, but feel good for stock OEM caps.
How long do we think this will take to ship once the drop is over?
First time buying a mechanical keyboard. All my friends have one, so I figured I should have one too.

Welcome to the dark side. We have cookies.
I bought this BECAUSE of the greens. Can't wait to give them a try!
I had this keyboard (full-sized version). Had to sell it as MX Geens were way too siff for me(many errors due to underpressed keys)
WHY. WHY is this only in MX Green.

You can buy other switch types elsewhere for less money.. Greens are harder to come buy, so get blues, Browns, etc, elsewhere.
Dr_Romeo_Chair
True. But i personally don't like the feel of greens.
I was about to buy it, but noticed it's only in MX Green. What a shame

He has the baby hands.
I would totally love to have greens, it's just I want to take this to history class and take notes, and also my skype friends would complain all the time. So yeah.
why couldn't this be the TK :(
Man i just bought the stealth version lol
Couldn't resist GREEN switches in a TKL format, LOVE IT : )
Searched and found this keyboard on Amazon for 79.99 and free shipping. Why would I want to buy it via massdrop?
chronicvader
I see blues for that price, but if there are greens, I will have to check it out.
You're better off buying a Quickfire Rapid-i for 90 bucks in Europe. It's a backlit version with most features being improved upon, plus no shipping cost at most retailers. This would actually be a viable keyboard if it were 60 bucks or so... :/
Scyther
Rapid-i doesn't come with green switches, and also green switches are more expensive.
