Anyone has a review on this?? Am comparing this to the tada68. Which has a better build quality?
I would not recommend this keyboard if you want to use GMK keycaps.
I regret buying this kit. I didn't know south-facing switches are not compatible with GMK keycaps.
In the picture it looks like a lot of the keycaps are crooked. Should I expect mine to look like that too?
Just so everyone is aware: the plate that ships with this is not compatible with the split spacebar layouts, and the gradient keycap set does not include a standard sized right shift key. I got screwed on both of these things when I purchased this kit (I could have figured the keycap thing out if I was smarter but the fact that MD shows the split spacebar layout when their plate isn't compatible kind of triggered me).
Is this kit compatible with Matias Switches?

Unfortunately not.
Are the switches on this pcb mounted upside down?

From what I can tell from the PCB picture, backlight LEDs appear to be at the top of the switch.

They're south-facing switches.
anyone have an assembly details? the middle of my board bows and doesn't want to sit flush with the switches. I can't see what's causing it.
I started working on the layout this evening and, hey... the plate doesn't support split spacebar, does it? Dammit!

:( well I didn’t really have a choice

You can take a file to remove this part. Takes some time but doesn't seem to interfere with stability as far as I can tell.
Still it is ridiculous to tell you that the board supports split layout and then without any notice the plate doesn't. When asking massdrop support about it, all you get is basically "screw you, we don't care"
My mini-USB port seems really loose, so my keyboard easily looses connection to the computer. Does anybody know of a good fix for this?
P.S.: I tried with different cables, one was slightly better, but still not near as good as it should be.
I just got a notice of delivery
I still haven't received mine
So is this shipping soon or ...?
But to choose this or Preonic? Oh man oh man oh man
May I know if the weight at the bottom comes the same color as the case, or a random color? Because actually it would be nice if we can choose the color of the weight, too.
