we can work on it w/ GMK :)

what was it priced at???
4 months later, numlock, leds and media controls still don't work on Windows and if you are on OSX there still is no configurator tool released. I expected much more from GMK on this, especially at this price range. Don't get me wrong, I love the board but not having even the basics working is pretty damn shameful even more so from the members of the keyboard community who hand their hand in bringing this to market. This should have never been released until the config tool worked 100% and before you defend yourselfs think about how you would feel on any group buy to finally get the board and even the bare basics don't work, you would be screaming bloody murder. I have seen folks get all bent out of shape if there is a tiny scratch or dent on their kustom's so again for a recap (and this is also pointed at you massdrop) how was this ever given the greenlight to be released when A. Basic functionally does not work (caps lock to toggle num pad) B. Led config does not work (cannot change the color) C. Conf tool is barely usable (2Fn layers, really? no scripting, most features don't work) D. MultiMedia keys don't work E. No OSX client, Windows version still at 1.0 (does anyone even work on the software) The state of this keyboard is beyond sad and I have a feeling nothing will change anytime soon, DYI kits anyone? Again how did GMK, livingspeedbump, T0mb3ry, Photekq, Wodan, and Zambumon screw this up so bad and why are you not trying to actively fix this?

Yeah I gotta agree. The hardware is great, the software leaves a lot to be desired. By that I mean the software basically doesn't work at all. I tried to program some stuff, but I couldn't figure it out, and there is no documentation. I tried contacting GMK, and they were going to send an email with instructions, but I never received anything.

I agree with this. Pretty shameful.
Hopefully someone here can help me....
Got my keyboard 3 months ago and the backspace already stopped working. I contacted Massdrop support and they mentioned that there is no manufacture warranty after 30 days of delivery. They are not able to help.
This keyboard was expensive (with $60 custom) and its just laying there beside my desk. I don't know how to build or solder keyboards. Can anyone here give some advice or tips on how to fix this?

Thank you for replying and writing this up Eli_Kasamoto. You provided more help than Massdrop support "out of warranty".
I bought this pre-assembled keyboard as I didn't have time (and not interested) in soldering. Looks like I have to buy some tools along with doing some research if I don't want to waste this keyboard.

No problem. Wish you luck, and I really hope that you are able to fix it.
Do update us about your progress. 😊
pretty much exactly what im looking for. this better be below $150
Just wondering if anyone can help with using the Uniqey Control software in general, my NumLock doesn't do anything except lighting the 1st LED on the right, and the dedicated number keys don't work as intended. Thanks for your help!
This is an awesome layout! If I could get the layout with a lighter case and extensible feet for travel use it would be great. I've tried some other keyboards, but I keep coming back to my Leopold 660 for its lighter case and easy portability.
what are the chances of seeing this with illuminated keys?
If anybody wants to trade their Titanium Grey for Dark Grey let me know. I mistakenly got the wrong color case:(
Equipped with Cherry Blue and qmx clips.
I thought we were all going to get a 6U spacebar pack to match the GMK sets sold here or am I completely wrong about that?
I finally got sometime to play around with this keyboard. As other members have already said this keyboard build quality is very good. On the other hand the software part of this keyboard does not work the way it should be either on the keyboard firmware itself or UniqeyControl software. For example I cannot use num lock key with MacBook. when I press this key, the status led doesn't light on, and the num pad function cannot be enable. For UniqeyControl software I think it's far from completed product.
I hope someone from GMK or Massdrop can give some ideas on what's going to be the next steps to solve the issues, instead of being so quiet.

It has been more than two weeks since I opened the tickets at uniqey.net, but I get no answer at all, and it is so quiet here as well. Hope this product is not dead yet, as I just got the keyboard after waiting for almost 7 months.

Hey @Jaeuk.K Thanks for the info. I just checked DHL website, and it says C70 just arrived DHL local distribution center in Thailand today.
KeycapLord
And mine surfaced in Korea today, after the same 20-day blackout. We'll see if they manage to deliver it...
Has anyone successful reprogrammed the keyboard with the uniqey software?
I can't seem to get my media keys (volup etc) to work. After setting and download the settings to the keyboard, the functions are all wrong... Volup opens up 'my computer'.
Tested with other media buttons on the programme and most don't work...

I'm currently using Windows. Is there a different version of the software or input that I need to select for Windows?
Sylvestyeo
I use UniqeyControl software for Mac. So I'm not really sure what's the difference between Mac and Windows version. Anyway when I try my keyboard on Windows machine, I cannot adjust volume up and down either. Even after changing the settings to VolumeUp/VolumeDown.
This is an awesome keyboard. It has everything, finally a complete navigation cluster with adjacent PgUp-PgDwn, Home-End, Insert-Delete...many compact layouts disregard how useful this is. And you get a numpad when you want to! But the price is too much for me.
three hunned dollars tho...
Yeah,
My purchase got through Turdbull's Blockade without being pinged for extortion.
Funny thing is that the "MassDrop" logo is no more, it's just a plain cardboard box with minimal identification.
The youngster is happy typing away on it with quality key-caps (GMK) what else.
If you lot are sitting here, wondering about buying it don't, put down the moolah and look forward to a real quality built keyboard. Very nice presentation box with some extra GMK key-caps to subtly change the look of your current key-set.
Thank you MassDrop, you have delivered something really NICE to one of my ankle-biters.
Obligatory unboxing shots... 📸

The build quality of this board is outstanding. Nothing to complain about here. But given the price of this board I had expected nothing less here.
In contrast the software - currently windows only - is a bad joke. I really do not understand why they had to develop something on their own. It's a huge pain to map and program the keyboard.
Mapping media key functions the board is broken. Volume controls somehow open Finder windows on my mac.
Partyschaum
Just to have it documented here: I sent this board back to MD after some days of sorrow regarding the Uniqey software. The software is in alpha stage at most. This rendered this fine keyboard unusable for me. 😪 Why didn't they use an OSS alternative for their software? 🤔
I see that a lot of people said the keyboard shipped 2 weeks ago. I assume that is not for this current drop and the december 2018 date is the correct one for this drop.
bionku
Yes that is correct!

Be still my broken heart
Really like the construction of this board and the layout feels great so far but, having planned to use it at work, the fact that the Fn key doesn't work on OSX makes it a non-starter. Real bummed about that, hope it gets resolved soon but it doesn't sound like it's going to be any time soon.

If they don't get back to you soon let me know and I'll send it to you or upload here maybe. They said the mac version was far from being done but it seems to work fine other than scroll lock, num lock and multiple led choices. To set fn, you use the second layout page in upper right corner...

Thanks! I'll give them a shout.
no qmk or tmk firmware, proprietary only it seems
has the first iteration of this gb been delivered to buyers yet?
Is there any way to get this with the shift and fn keys swapped around so that the fn key is on the medial side?
I received mine several days ago.
Nice keyboard! There’s nothing immediately flashy about it, but everything screams quality. Super solid.
The case is nice. Really heavy. Solid.
I usually spec Cherry Browns, and got them this time as Cherry switches were all that were offered.
I find, though, that when a case is really heavy and solid, the tactile bump and typing action feel lighter than they do with less substantial cases. Maybe because when the case is so solid, there’s no additional flex or deflection to power through, and the typing action feels lighter.
When the case is as heavy as this is, I probably could have specced Clears and it would have felt fine to me. I usually find Clears just a bit too heavy for my taste in my other keyboards.
This is a keyboard that won’t necessarily wow you with bells, whistles, or flashing lights, but it will win you over for its quality and solidity.

Might be easiest to send me a link over at https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/
Just got this keyboard but can't figure out how to program it. Anyone figure that out yet?

Is there a way to get the "fn" and "code" keys to work on MAC? So far no good...
GreazyFingaz
Sorry cant say really. I've tested it only on Windows os.
New drop...but still no sight of the ISO option that was promised... :(

Any guess as to when, we will see it for sale?
BitLuder
It's Uniqey GmbH who is responsible for this layout so you'd have to contact Uniqey on their social media of via email from their website. I asked them a few months back and they said they are still working on it, so they're probably get back to you if you ask them directly.
Not happy that there were setbacks with the drop. Not happy that there were no incentives for first time backers. Not happy that I got $65 in customs
Now, the packaging was top notch. The Uniqey box that the keyboard came in is premium and the quality of the keyboard is absolutely amazing.

Wow! Can't thank you enough. Valuable info there! I'm hoping to get to the bottom of my "key spin" problem soon. I'll let you know what happens...
Nope I don't feel any travel or wobble on the switches that are unusual for Cherry switches. What switches do you normally use, have you used Cherry switches before, what Cherry switches did you get on you c70 and last question have you checked the keycaps to see if they are lose and causing the wobble?
I got my c70 with Cherry clears so the keycaps are VERY snug as they are on all Cherry Clear switches so the wobble I would feel would be from the switch stem itself, so yeah check your keycaps first to see if they are loose. Hope this helps you.
Mine arrived today. I'm very happy. This was an upgrade for me over a Pok3r after I realized I can't live without arrow keys. Same switches as my Pok3r (MX Clear) but feels a million times better. I ordered it with the damping brackets. I like the layout quite a bit. It gives me everything I need while taking up minimal desk space.

Nice, I think the layout we end up having for this keyboard is fantastic and GMK did a fantastic design with the case
Would love to see this offered as a kit in the future; clipped/lubed stabilizers + zealios switches on this layout would be awesome!
Anyone interested in a batch 1 board with MX Clears and QMK clips? Asking retail + shipping.

$315 plus shipping? Where are you located?

I don't understand the purpose of this layout? 60%, 68%, 75%, okay -- they have a distinct place, but this is an inch away from a TKL in width yet has far less stock functionality. And remapping layouts or adding a layer is only a small part of programmability -- why not use QMK?
