Anyone else have an issue with the FN keys? I occasionally get a weird lozenge character instead of open or closed parenthesis:

Tried to determine what character this is
I just returned one of these back to Amazon because when I used it on my iMac it would freak out if more than one key was down at once. It would typically duplicate the first key press so 12 would come out as 112. Has anyone else noticed this issue, is it just with Macs?

Oh! Then I’ll not be buying this. Gonna wait for @MiTo’s Laser themed Staryu-like pad. Can’t wait.
If this had a removable cable I would be interested for sure
Has anybody already received the order? How's the quality of the version with Gateron switch? There are many negative feedback on the reliability of this switch types on the net...

i love my gateron switches. I have a magicforce 49 key and it has never acted up. I have a switch tester (my opinion might change if I try the retooled cherry switches) but the quality of gateron switches is higher than cherry IMO
Would like an update of some kind, considering it's now 4 days past estimated shipping date.

I did get the usual Massdrop email earlier this week:

Due to an unexpected delay, these orders may ship later than the original estimated ship date. Our apologies for any inconvenience. If we find that the drop is going to be delayed by more than 30 days, we will let you know.If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button on your transactions page and our Community Support Team will be able to help cancel your order up until it is ready for shipment.
Did our orders for these ship out yesterday per the expected ship date of 5/7/18?
Is this a true numpad (sending numpad keycodes), or a remapped number row?
If I already have a full sized keyboard, can I use the separate numpad to have extra keys like a macropad?

No problem it just means reprogramming the functions

Ah - okay. Thank you. I can understand that. ;)
So there are no pics of Icy White? They are all in Blue backlit, am I right?
I'm really interested in this numpad, but does it support 'alt' functionality? (for instance, where you hold 'alt', and use a combination of numpad numbers to type out en/em-dashes, and other keys that aren't on a typical keyboard layout, as shown here: http://www.irongeek.com/alt-numpad-ascii-key-combos-and-chart.html )

This is a really good question. I would also like to know that, since I certainly would expect it to.
I am "assuming" you somehow attach this to your keyboard? If so, how do you do it? Again, sorry to have to ask...

Thank you. Which switches should I select? I am thinking that I want the exact setup that is pictured.

Thank you.

This is a question hard to answer, because it depends on preference!
Usual answer would be to go to a mall, meetup ... to try out different switches.

Something to read: https://deskthority.net/wiki/Category:Cherry_MX - https://deskthority.net/wiki/Category:Keyboard_switches_by_feel/sound

It might be good to know as a starting point, do you want audible and tactile feedback like mx blue or mx green; linear switches without a tactile feedback like mx red, mx black, speed silver; tactile feedback like mx brown, mx clear.

So many options, different folks, different strokes :)
Replacable switches?

But do they require desoldering or are they socketed to be replacable?

Ahhh... Excuse my previous post -- clearly hadn't had enough coffee in the A.M. and was talking about caps. Nah the switches would have to be desoldered.
