Has anyone tried to flash the latest Drevo firmware on it to be able to use Drevo customization software?
The software is on there site: https://www.drevo.net/product/keyboard/calibur And here's a post with firmwares and a demo of what the software is capable of: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/6zjda3/news_drevo_calibur_software_released_credit_to/
Has anyone had an issue with the windows key not responding? Both windows keys do not respond which makes me think some setting got changed. I cannot figure it out.
I use this keyboard on OSX so technically it is my alt/option key. I've been using this keyboard for probably 6 months with no problems. The LEDs still work on the keys so it doesn't sound like a soldering issue, plus what are the chances BOTH alt keys stop working.
rondog
looks like at some point I hit ƒ+option and that disabled it. Hitting that combo again fixed it.
Anybody else having issues with support? My keyboard won't sync to any bluetooth device.
Is the bottom row supposed to have the Blue of the LED's always on? Annnnddd it's now flickering the blue on/off. I bet there's a short somewhere.
Kind of hard to use it when LED's are flickering all the time.
luke.nukem.jones
There's a short in the circuit for the LED's somewhere.. Sure, the KB works fine, but the LED's don't. Effectively makes it junk unless I remove all the LED's.
Also having problem with wired connection. Windows 10 just straight doesn't see it. When I plug in a normal keyboard, Device Manager sees it and adds a "HID Keyboard Device" but when I plug the KC71 in, nothing shows up. Is there a driver or something for this thing?
I plugged it into my mac via USB and it didn't work either.
How do I get support for this thing? I downloaded the english manual but that doesn't say all that much...
Please help.... :(
(BTW, it works fine on BT with my macbook but that's not where I want to use it.)
I'm having trouble with the wired mode. When I plug it in it blinks in the rgb once or twice then it seems like the keyboard completely turns off. I don't know what's going on but neither the RGB or the actual keyboard work then it's plugged in.
received my keyboard and my intension is using it wired but when i turned it on the spacebar is always bliking green, does it mean its charging ? when the charge is full the light will turn to the color i want ?
i turned on the keyboard via bluetooth and the color was fine
id like some help :s
KAPA1g
yes. when it blinks green, that means the keyboard is charging. once it is fully charged, the color will match the colors of the rest of the keyboard.
is anyone else having issues pairing their drevo bluetooth mechanical keyboard to their os device? I'm trying to pair it to my macbook pro but it isn't detecting the keyboard. it has no issues connecting to my iPhone and iPad but my laptop doesn't even detect it.

By any chance, is that software *NOT* drevo72? I'm trying to find an alt to it as it's awful...

I don't think so. I kinda gave up on the Drevo. Couldn't be bothered to send it back. It's a nice little keyboard - I bought some nice caps top go with it - but it's hardly a good solution for people using MACs.
I received my keyboard Monday, April 3rd 2017, Chinese instructions and all. I promptly tried it on every OS i could get my hands on( Mac OS Yosemite, W10, Ubuntu 16 ). W10 and Ubuntu didnt workout so well using the bluetooth connection. Mac OS worked flawlessly with the bluetooth connection. All worked flawlessly with the wired connection. I'm happy with my purchase.
So i received my keyboard. but the instructions came in Chinese. Does anyone have a link to an english version?
I just received mine today. Everything seems to work except that I can't figure out how to put the keyboard in bluetooth mode and make the connection to my computer. RGB effects are nice. I tried the FN + Q for 3 seconds but no light is blinking etc... help anyone? Thank you!
CoachRico
nevermind! I just figure it out! the pairing mode did not work as long as the usb cable was plugged in the computer even though the switch was on ...
As an update to this purchase -
It's been used heavily since receiving around 6 months ago and while no more LEDs have died my left control key is on the fritz.
Upon press it toggles the caps lock function.
As it's just one key I'm not yet at the point where I want to dismantle and attempt to fix, but buyer beware etc.
den_is
This is actually a feature
FN + Left Ctrl : Switch the Ctrl and Caps key function
^From the instruction manual
Do it support SDK for rgb led programming? I want to make some light effect.
Hey...has anyone else had a hard time getting support to help you with a defective KC71 RGB Bluetooth Mech Keyboard? Been trying to reach some one for about 2 weeks.
Yep, mine is defective, but I can't tell if it's fixable or a complete deal breaker yet or not. The Q key on mine is stuck on white – it still has all of the functionality of changing it, I can switch it to any color manually, but as soon as I exit the setup mode to customize the colors, it changes back to white. Then it either stays lit (even in modes where it should be dark), or flashes on and off continuously for no apparent reason.
Hopefully I can find a way to fix it because right now it is making things pretty ugly.

That's the bluetooth indicator, Idk why, but that is intentional.
if u were to say no keycaps does that mean it litteraly doesnt come with keycaps or no to an extra set or something
Rival
They quite literally mean, no key caps
Rival
In the case that you're going to put your own keycaps on it, you don't have to waste your money getting the keycaps from the manufacturer
What does it mean when some of these product has "best of massdrop" in them, while other do not? As far as looking at some of the comments, this doesn't seem very great.
Nomv
Agreed. After reading the comments from others that have purchased this keyboard, I'd never buy it. And the bluetooth lag. Yuck.
Is there a significant response difference between wired mechanical and Bluetooth wireless mechanical?

Are you on Sierra yet with the VB87m? The last drop said it wasn't compatible yet.
robungar
I had some issues with Sierra syncing when it was still in beta, however it has worked without any issues with me for the last several months.
BUYERS BEWARE: The majority of shipped products in the KC64 drop were defective and unusable. Heads-up to everybody!!!

KC64 and KC60 are made by a different manufacturer.
compuguy
idk... but anyways still an issue that Massdrop obvs shipped out a bunch of defective products without even first checking to make sure they work, and then you're on the hook for shipping, etc.
Does anyone else get a bit of lag over bluetooth? It's pretty small but annoying enough where I just use it as wired.
syedjafri99
this is to be expected as it is bluetooth 3.0 and not 4.0 3.0 tends to have about a 100ms response time 4.0 a 3-6 ms response time
So, has the bluetooth been fixed for this drop, or is it still the same?
Is this compatible with Sierra?
robungar
I'm using it with Sierra. Although I have a bit of lag over bluetooth. I'm not sure if that's just my unit or if it would happen with another OS.
syedjafri99
will always get lag because of bluetooth 3.0 the minimum response time of 3.0 is 100 ms. they should have went 4.0 for the 3-6 ms response time.
I'd join right now if shipment wasn't $32.50. A real pity though.
zoomer
get it from AliExpress I just looked and found the same keyboard for less with ftee shipping ;-)
TuxKey
What'd you search?
$32 for shipping to uk? really? :(
tscolari
Check out AliExpress ;-)
I see that in the Massdrop photos that there is no Bluetooth indicator light on Q/E/R yet on every other photo outside of Massdrop I see that they do light up. Has this been changed for Massdrop?
Also has the lag input of 70-100wpm been fixed?
o4kmodo
They are still on 3.0 so no it isn't fixed it is a limitation of the bluetooth standard used
AntonyFarag
Thanks. Since that's the case I just went with the Drevo brand instead for half the price. (with the sacrifice of being Outemu switches though). Hopefully there's a way to manually swap the BT 3.0 chip to a BLE BT 4.0 or an HID++ chip without recoding with Arduino.
My keyboard seems to work ok except for the times it totally freaks out and starts inserting some random codes into my text... and it doesn't stop until I unplug and plug back in. Any ideas? Is this some bluetooth related garbage?

Hey maybe the resolution to fix my issue has been posted already but I'm having some quirky behavior. When I press the "M" key it jumps back to the start of the line and does a return. And when I hit the "I" key, it also puts the letters "K", "J" and "M" afterwards...all other keys seem to work ok. Not sure if this is just a defective keyboard....
Thanks!
Hey, where were these assembled? I noticed that when I press the "2" key it strikes the "W", "S", and occasionally the "X" and "ALT" keys, so I popped it open, and I found that for that entire column the soldering is... not good.

There's flux everywhere, too... I don't even know where to start cleaning this up.
Has anyone else cracked theirs open? I'm kind of disappointed, after waiting for two months I was expecting something that works.
eletious
Same exact problem with mine.
