I ordered this back in May and still have yet to receive it... Anyone else get theirs? Estimated ship date was 2 weeks ago...
Looks identical to the Ajazz Zinc model I just got. Might did more details online about that, though not much…

Not saying it definitely is the same keyboard, but looks similar and maybe the details on that page help answer some of the other questions.

Admittedly, they do offer Gaterons on this drop
I bought this from the drop back in February and finally received it. Anyone have any idea when we can expect the manual to be translated to English? I have no idea how to do anything on this except plug it in via USB and type away..
When you guys say there's lag on Bluetooth 3.0, do you mean for gaming, or is it unacceptably bad in general? I'm looking for a work keyboard that would just be used for coding, would this thing be okay for that if I just plugged it in to charge when I went home every night?

I have a different Bluetooth 3.0 keyboard and I find it varies by device it's connected to, but at best I can only type 70wpm or slower if I don't want dropped keystrokes, and the lag is noticeable but tolerable.
Give me this in black, with MX or Gateron browns, Bluetooth 4.1, and some kind of useful key remapping, and you can have all my money.

how does kbdfans work?

just go to their website, buy a keyboard and they will ship it to you. you can pick what switches , on which pcb, which case (make sure its compatible) then order as a kit or as assembled. make sure you ask and add to cart genuine cherry stabilizers if you choose assembled. their bluetooth 60% is currently still on pre order tho, but should not take that long
What kind of cherry mx switches? I was wondering if they have the brown switches. Just wondering. If someone knows what switches they use, contact me please. tanks! :)

It says black, blue, brown, red for cherry in options after clicking “join drop”.

Oh. Ok. Thanks! I'll look forward to purchasing!
I have a question about the place where this keyboard made ? What's branch name ?
How's the backplate resonance?
I have a love-hate relationship with this keyboard. At first, I was in love with the construction and wide variety of function hotkeys, but the bluetooth is pretty disappointing. There are three different bluetooth modes (blue, green, and red), presumably to maintain pairing to three different devices. But getting a specific bluetooth mode to pair and to maintain its pairing is incredible frustrating. My experience has been that each time I want to use my computer, I need to expect to spend a solid 5 minutes getting it paired. It is frustrating.
Further: there is no included instruction manual, and using this device is really complicated. It may be that there is a better way to use the device, but I just cannot figure it out. I've settled on simply using USB, but the whole reason I bought this keyboard was to use the bluetooth features.

Any hints as to how to even begin pairing this thing?

I put it in the blue Bluetooth mode (Fn + Q) and wait a bit. its extremely finicky.
For anyone who consider about bluetooth 3.0, Im using TADA 68 bluetooth 3.0 with my pc, the lag is unnoticeable, but with the phone, you can clearly see it, I dont need a good latency with phone, so its ok for me. I didnt use any keyboard bluetooth before, but my mouse is Logitech 603, when connect to phone, I still can see the lag there
Can this keyboard work with usb wire ? Like other people say, bluetooth 4.0 is better
ForteD
Works fine with just the USB cable
Magicforce?
Is this Mac-compatible??
jtanadi
yeah, compatible
So Massdrop, are you going to ignore the questions and comments on this drop and just let it slip away?
- Battery life? - Bluetooth 3.0... Really? - Did you not learn after running the Keycool 71 drop that had 3.0 - Programmability? DIP Switches? - Is the brand really just "IF2"? Can you pick something more vague? No one likes buying products for $99.99 when you don't even know who is making the product and if they will offer any support beyond the initial purchase. No website/documentation just makes this product look like it was made by some cheap manufacturer and sold at a premium price.

Battery life?     3000mA Programmability?     Does not support customization Bluetooth 3.0 ... Really?     Is Bluetooth 3.0 - Is the brand really just "IF2"? ----this is made by Magicforce?
I don't mind the blue-white or white LED options, which complement the IF2-68's understated design. What does bother me is the Bluetooth iteration.
Bluetooth 3.0 = errors and omissions that occur so frequently they make swiping substitutions on a smartphone seem relaxing by comparison.

Yep, there have been other keyboards that use Bluetooth 3.0 which have had TERRIBLE lag. Just check the comments on the Keycool71 / Drevo Calibur before they finally updated to BT4.0 there were complaints everywhere.
Was considering it until I read Bluetooth 3.0, that alone means terrible battery life since Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) wasn't introduced until 4.0 , others will say otherwise but compare a Bluetooth 4.0 keyboard to a 3.0 one and the difference is night and day, 3.0 also has terrible latency, absolutely no reason what so ever to use 3.0, you could argue compatibility but you can simply emulate BT 3.0 in 4.0, something many boards already do.
This is a real disappointment since this looks like the birth child of the Anne Pro and Magicforce 68, the lack of RGB is also strange but understandable since some people may only want White backlighting.Then there's also the lack of USB Type C that other keyboards like the New Poker II already use (Its a much better connector compared to micro USB).
Overall this board doesn't seem worth it unfortunately, mainly because of the poor decision to use Bluetooth 3.0 instead of 4.0 with 3.0 Emulation, there are other keyboards at the moment that simply are better options for a better price (Drevo Calibur, Anne Pro, Poker II, Drevo Excalibur).
Keyboard: $90 Shipping to Spain: $30 :(
Is that....A Magicforce?!?!

True. Not sure why this over the BT Tada68?
outsider
If you like the floating key design of the Magicforce, that's one reason to get this over the Tada68 Pro. Also if you don't want to go through Taobao proxies then this is a pretty good alternative.
if it wasnt for that mirrored bezel....sigh....
I wish I knew something about the different switches because this is a tempting drop

There are several things on reddit too if you want to know more about Gateron or any other switch

I would LOVE this as a kit or without keycaps. Is it anywhere?
Can this be programmed?
Battery life? rechargeable?
No_Hands_55
