Would love to buy the silver version.
$38 shipping to Australia killed the impulse buy.
$3 cheaper via Amazon https://www.amazon.com/MF108-Mechanical-Keyboard-Aluminum-Keycaps/dp/B06W5SBQNG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1532703796&sr=8-1&keywords=mf108&dpID=41BO6-ndbnL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
I own this keyboard. I like it. It doesn’t move lol. I will say the usb connection is still flimsy. I had to open it and pull it out because the connection went inside.
This seems to be the same price I can get this keyboard on MechanicalKeyboards. Is it a newer edition or are there things about this one that are different and justify getting in on massdrop and waiting for it?

Nope it's just massdrop's mistake
For us Canadians, Amazaon is still cheaper and immediately available: https://www.amazon.ca/MF108-Mechanical-Keyboard-Cherry-Aluminum/dp/B06WGWZ8T3/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1532622137&sr=8-12&keywords=ikbc&th=1
Love my F108. Can I just get the aluminum case?
Solid choice for full-size aluminum beast. I wish they'd release this with a plate that supports switch-top opening.
Kiryu
or a hotswap pcb
Does anyone have a picture of what the stabilizers look like on this board?
To my surprise including the whopping 25$ USD shipping, this is still cheaper if bought locally !
Amazing deal....I've saw a review of it, the metal frame is heavy as hell, I think you can literally kill someone with this KB...
YOU MADE IT HAPPEN!
This is one of the most requested options from the Keyboards For $110 And Up poll created by Chicken. Thanks to everyone who voted for making this drop possible.

FFS, there were 434 votes in total. Only 1 person voted for this keyboard. If you have extra inventory to get rid of, own up to it.

This shit is ridiculous and it's poor customer service.
What does the V2 have over the non-V2 version? This is $159.99 at https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=3400 but it doesn't seem to be V2

From what I understand, just improved LEDs, lighting effects, and a less fragile internal cable guard for the USB connector. Also more switch selections like Silent Reds, but those don's seem to be included in this drop.
Canadian friends - currently in-stock at Amazon.ca for cheaper as you don't get his with taxes/duties!
HELP! Okay... I am going to order one of these for myself... don't know why, except that I love it!
I'm new to mech keyboards, etc... which do I want.. red, black, or blue? I don't want one that is overly noisy, but I don't want one that is like the "big box stores' keyboards"... whatever THAT means...
Thank you... I think I would be happy with anything.. but want to get one on order before it closes. I have put off buying one because I get to this point and just stop... but now, need to get it ordered.. 1 day left!!

Please help, and thank you.

PS: Just read the diff between red, black and blue... still can't decide. I'm not a gamer... more of a typist, I guess... They need one for people who can't decide anything... make it zebra colored and a complete surprise to the person who receives it!!

If you bought this setup, it might be closer to what you want, at a cheaper price:

A GMMK @ $60 from this site https://www.pcgamingrace.com/products/gmmk-full-customized = ~$60

12 x https://novelkeys.xyz/collections/switches/products/aliaz-switches = ~$66

...and then choose whatever keycaps you prefer (ABS, PBT, whatever profile you prefer [E.g. SA, XDA, DSA, etc.]) you might find you've either spent less or as much as you would here, but get the experience you're after.

Just an example of something you might like: https://www.amazon.com/printed-Translucent-Switches-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B06XXNNW1D?th=1

The Aliaz switches are pretty quiet out of the box and with 12 order (they come in packs of 10), then you'll have a few spare. The beauty of this approach is that you'll have a keyboard that requires little work, but is completely customizable. I have clicky switches on mine for the numpad, but quieter ones all around. My alphas are using Gateron Yellows that I've modded myself, so they're quieter than anything else I've tried. The Aliaz are closer to those than anything, but require much less work.

Also keep in mind that unlike this keyboard, the GMMK doesn't have dedicated media keys. For that I downloaded the free AutoHotkey app (https://autohotkey.com/) and found a script that allows me to use some function keys as media keys. If they are function keys you don't normally use, then you can even get media keycaps to put in their place.

This is all a personal thing, but that's partly why I suggested a GMMK. You'll get the option to try things out and see what works best, instead of spending $200 for something you're basically stuck with.

EDIT: I love the Aliaz switches, but they ended up being too loose in my GMMK for my taste...kept coming out of the case while typing, so I went back to my custom Gaterons.

GMMK is great for all the reasons you mentioned but the build quality on this is what you’re paying for. If V.3 has hot swap switches IKBC is going to cause a worldwide aluminum shortage.
I got one of these from the first time they were offered on Massdrop and love it. The only reason I am not currently using it is because I got one of the K-type keyboards, which goes that few extra steps toward my heart by being completely open-source and having replaceable switches.

That said, I keep it propped up againt the inside of my computer desk in case the Zombie Apocalypse breaks out. I truly believe it would win hands down as most powerful melee weapon against even the venerable katana. The only advantage the katana really has is that it would be less tiring to swing. Also, it has a numpad so if I have to do any data-entry type work I will temporarily swap it back in, in place of the K-type (which, for those who don't know, is a tenkeyless style keyboard).
