Anyone encountered this gap? This is a Quickfire Rapid so I guess Filco owners will not encounter this :(

My best Massdrop experience yet. I already received the case after being notified that it was sent our for shipping on 10th of July (Asia Pacific timezone) Item has no scratches but it has some cnc fluid stains which is expected I guess. lovely case nevertheless!
Any reason why his case will NOT fit the Plum 87 keyboard? Anybody tried it already? Thanks!
No red color like the 60%???
Are there any cases for full-sized Filcos? My Majestouch 2 badly needs a cool case :(
That first render picture with those keycaps though
leopold?
Anyone know roughly how often this drops? Really looking forward to grabbing a silver one.

Looks like today is your lucky day.
Just got my lambo 80 last week. I can't seem to identify the correct tool to use to unscrew the case. Went to the local hardware store and nothing worked. Saw the post from 44 weeks ago that mentioned M2.5. I tried that and down to M2.0. Even that was too large.
How do you get this darn thing open?

I used a small hex wrench (unsure of exact size - was part of a computer repair kit I had). Didn't feel ideal but worked. Be careful not to strip loosening and tightenen minimally when installing. Screws seemed of high quality from what I could tell but don't need much torque so don't risk stripping.

Thanks Fred. Went to another hardware store and found the correct size. It's A 1.5 mm hex key.
Anyone else who has received theirs notice scratches on the top surface? The largest one in the attached photos is near the backspace top-right. There are about a dozen scratches on top in total, none on the sides, and the bottom just has a few. Definitely disappointed at this price point, and caution future purchases despite overall build quality and feel being superior. I do not regret the purchase, but expected perfection.

You're completely correct. I'll reach out and revise my post here accordingly. I just hope that ultimately Massdrop doesn't take the hit. I'd be happy with $20-40 in future keycap credit, because I have zero faith in this Lambo company producing a quality replacement considering how few of these they actually made in the first place for this drop and managed to mess up.
FredMR
I don't see any scratches on mine, it's quite pristine. Very happy with it.

Can someone post a picture of the opening with the USB connector? Trying to figure out if a Type C breakout would fit.

Disappointed, but glad I asked before spending.

FYI, a photo trying to insert an actual USB C cable (does not fit):

If anyone is curious... KBParadise V80 Silent Cherry Blacks, with EnjoyPBT keycaps.

How does the USB port / cable work w/ the V80 and this case? I'm considering this for my V80 w/ silent blacks as well.

Sorry for the late reply! Works 100% fine, no issues at all. Even has some room for thin foam padding inside to reduce metallic pings.
Too bad it doesn't come in blue like the 60% does :(
Where can I get a PCB for this? Sounds like phantom will not work for this?

Thanks for the quick reply! That is what the general consensus seems to be.

What's the going rate to get a plate?
Will this case fit Filco Convertible II TKL?

Thanks! Where did you route or keep the button swith for toggling the bluetooth radio on/off??
Hahaha no worries. This‘ll be a bit challenging then. last question. Any holes on the bottom part of the case? i guess not. i’m curious cause the 60% has holes
I love it! But a bit to rich for me. I could buy a HAM radio for this price =D
Not really hating. Like the design. But until you can get this molded pile of Pepsi cans to $99 or below I just can't get there. To even insinuate this should ever cost $220 is crazy to me. Honestly anyone who is buying this for $159 is getting taken. If your costs are this high that you need to charge this you are screwing up, bottom line, no excuses.

Only you can really answer that. It's very subjective. People like what they like, watches, knives, sneakers. Keyboards at the very least can be utilitarian and aesthetically pleasing.
Perish
Milled, not 'molded', i think you meant 'cast'. Careful with that attitude, assuming you know everything already leaves no room to continue to learn, which limits your potential in life.
The reason aluminum computer cases are cheap is because they are stamped aluminum. That is fast and cheap. You can also make keyboards by stamping aluminum, but it will simply be a facade, but with a plastic body. This is a full aluminum keyboard body far too thick to be stamped.
In no way is this a 'cost efficient' way to make a keyboard, but it results in a solid brick of a keyboard, a quality feel you cannot find in cheap mass produced keyboards built down to a price. Whether it is worth it to you or not is up to you, but that isn't a fault on the product if it isn't, apparently, it is worth it to some people.
Apologies in advance for yet another "will this fit"... Will this fit a CM Storm TKL? I thought I saw somewhere that it did, but the cutout for the USB looks like it's in the centre with thios, and it's on the right front of my KBD.

Hey, I'm about to make a post over at r/mechmarket with that color so watch out for it.

I don't know about the storm, but the quick fire rapid will fit. I have no idea if the mounting screw positions changed or not.
I own one. It is beyond hefty and truly the highest quality board I own. Highly recommend.
wow this is really nice... but the pricing...
A $160 dollar case and it doesn't even have free shipping?
vectorx5000
Not sure most ppl. happy to pay $160 for a case are too fussed about free shipping or not. Would it be better if it was a $180 case, with free shipping? ;)
Will this fit the Majestouch 2 Convertible TKL?
Anyone knows how the LED (caps/scroll) holes look like? (Can't see them on the screenshots.)

Go to image 5 of 12, and zoom in. Looks like they're both there.
Or, scroll down to a post (by EELAmbiense) about 30W ago for more photos that do indeed show both holes

Thanks!

From reading previous posts describing the color, I believe the following link provides a better and more accurate comparison between silver and titanium grey. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32677061753.html
Does anyone know if the USB module will interfere with the "Pegasus Hoof" replacement programmable micro-controller?
fluxrez
Since it's on the opposite side of the PCB it will fit just fine.

I was more worried about software conflicts
Sorry to be one of those “does it fit?” kind of comments but does it fit the Coolermaster Novatouch TKL (the Topre one)? Thanks!

Thank you for the pointer. It does indeed look great and I will set some alerts on online sites for it.

Norbauer is not planning on doing another round after 2.5, the best way to find one is via Geekhack or Deskthority FS/WTB listings or on r/mechmarket. He's just finished the RF 86/87 case, so there will be a few people selling their Norbatouches / cases as they start to be delivered. It's probably the best time to try and snag one. If you get a chance to get an Enigma Black I truly recommend it, it's got that fine texture of late 40s/50s electronics that just oozes quality. The Norbatouch cases are a step up in finish and quality from the ones in this drop, especially the powder coated ones. It's reflected in the price, but, I haven't heard on anyone who was disappointed.
This is a closeup of my Enigma Black to give you an idea of the texture, this is the subtle wrinkle coat - it's not actually sparkly, just the light catching on the finish. Good luck hunting yours down, you won't regret it.

Does anyone know if this case is compatible with the mistel sleeker tkl keyboard?
Load 1 more comment
This one Looks so much nicer XD thanks for the reply :)
KikkotheWhiteFox
Fair enough :)
Is this compatible with a Ducky DK9087 G2 pro?
Is this compatible with the Majestouch 1 as well?
Acclaim
Unsure - but posts further down from a previous drop say yes, it's compatible.
Does this fit a Code TKL or a WASD V2 TKL?
norunners
Not without modifications you really don't want to do.... I mean, at a glance there is no slot for the dips and the usb connector is placed differently
