Is this the same as the one on IKBC's website? Also, why is there over 800 requests for the this one and only 50 for the V2?
Hey, I really love this keyboard, but I don't like the black color. Can you tell me where to buy white
Got mine in. Swapped out the Keycaps for GMK Miami nights. Holy crap, even the stabs were lubed!?!?

VERY premium feeling board, especially with the Silent Reds. I LOOOOVE this Silent Reds/Lubed Stabs/Aluminum Case Combo!

For the type feel and price, I give this board a 10/10! Thanks IKBC!

If you guys run another group buy, can you run these in some exclusive anodized colors, like Gray? If yes, count me in for another board!

My keyboard did not work. I have solved the problem.
But when I open it, there is a crack in the joint.

I've had five MF-87s and all of them have had this problem. I ordered three through Amazon and finally on the third one I asked iKBC to send me a new USB port module and replaced it myself, rather than hassle with yet another return. I ordered the last two from Blinq (Massdrop's closeout sales) and in addition to the cracked USB module they also have issues with shorting LEDs and switches. These MD version don't have the insulating layer between the case and PCB, unlike the current production versions sold by iKBC on Amazon that do have the insulation. These boards work fine when the case is opened up and an insulating layer is inserted properly. I've emailed iKBC again asking for replacement USB modules and the insulating layer so I can retrofit these boards. It really is in their best interest to provide the parts since they clearly have several design/production flaws with these.
Just got mine in and plugged it into my computer...and got a "USB device not recognized" message.
Anyone know what's going on? I just took the board out of the box!

this is happening to me too, i also got the ikbc mf 108 version of the board, and the same exact thing had happened and its quite irritating. Also it felt like the micro usb didnt want to go in the port on the keyboard all the way, but the computer still recognized it and stated that it was malfunctioned.
How have some people gotten their keyboards and others haven't?

I see tons of people on here who got their keyboard more than two months ago. Meanwhile, I just got an email from Massdrop today saying that the shipping date for my board has been delayed. Can someone please explain this?

This keyboard is also available on amazon now. Both the MF108 and MF87 in silver and black colors. It's possible that some people have just ordered from amazon ($20 more expensive if I recall)
Phew! Good to know I'm not alone, then.
Seems like iKBC has replenished their inventory for this board on Amazon... https://www.amazon.com/iKBC-Mechanical-Keyboard-Cherry-Aluminum/dp/B072JWBJDJ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1497659948&sr=8-2&keywords=ikbc%2Bmf87&th=1

For those who missed the drop. Still wish it had macro functions tho...
Got mine today and it feels great. No QC issues I just have to learn how to control the lighting effects
Just received DOA. Caveat emptor.

It has an aluminum case right? Can I buy it off of you?

After some troubleshooting, opening the keyboard up twice, and a lot of cable jiggling, I noticed that a plastic piece that retains the pins inside the Micro-USB socket was missing. Wrote to IKBC asking for the part, and they sent it to Canada for free, and thanked me for fixing it myself.

The MF-87 still pulls more power than my MF-108, and I am unable to plug it into the same unpowered hub that was fine for the larger keyboard with more LEDs.

The MF-108 "ripple" mode looked like spreading concentric rings whereas this one does this rotating radar thing that doesn't look as good. There is a firmware installer on the IKBC site but I don't know which version I have installed and since the installer package is just a zipped EXE with no documentation, I'm not all that keen on trying it.

The typing experience on MX Browns is excellent -- seems better than my MF-108 somehow -- and all keys and LEDs are working. Not a smooth purchase experience but I'm very happy to own it now.
received mine today, a screw fell out of somewhere and the micro usb port was not attached to the board properly. It pressed back inside the board and is now stuck. QC not so good on this board.

Yes, they treated it as a warranty repair. No charge for the part (declared value $1) or shipping. Gotta be cheaper than an RMA.

Thanks again! Both of my RMA'd boards are back with iKBC and I'm waiting for the $340 charged on my CC to be refunded. It would have been much less of a hassle to just get the socket. I think I'll order one more and then deal with iKBC as you did if there are further issues. I really want this board!
