Up to a 1 month delay on something that I've been waiting for for 3 months already. Man.
Sockies
Just to update anyone curious, here’s what my timeline looked like: Ordered: Jul 19 Original ship date: Oct 18 Received an email on Oct 18 telling me that it may be delayed by one month Ship notice: Nov 11 Not sure exactly when it will ship or arrive, as the FedEx page doesn’t have any info just yet. Will update when I get the package.
So....this keyboard is my first purchase from Massdrop,
I'm unfamiliar with the reliability of Massdrop's shipping. Moreover the estimated shipping date for this run (September 2018) is Dec 26. In the event that my package is damaged/lost, what should I do.
Last time I ordered something in December, it arrived February the next year.
Is December 26 a realistic shipping date or can we expect it sooner?
can I know the precise XYZ dimension of the keyboard? the manual file is unavailable.
Anyone rock one of these with MacOS? compatible?
December 26 shipping is very off putting
Damn $40 more for MX clear ?
Hm, if a $30 mechanical keyboard from china can integrate media control keys, I don't see why this keyboard can't do the same. Keyboard standards are all over the place these days. Was almost a purchase for me.

I guess so
Too bad it turns out to be $90cad with shipping, i'll have to go with a similar option in amaz
I ordered one in Amazon but returned it due to subpar quality. The RGB flickering is real. I thought maybe some reviewers had a dud but I also had one so that says to me that there's definitely quality issue with this model. It's different from 62 keys model's quality. This model might be a re branded Ajazz that can be bought for $30
Bought this model (MX blue, white backlit) through Amazon and the backlight is flickering when ever it's adjusted to max. brightness. Anyone has the same issue? Also after using it for more than 1 hour the backlight goes on and off randomly. I think I've got a dud... It's a pity since the bottom out noise is excellent for a plastic bottom-case with aluminum plate only board. MX blue is excellent, no doubt. Also the double shot ABS caps are excellent with really nice font type for a budget board IMHO.
And... It shipped today?! A pleasant surprise. :)

Now my daily grind begins: Constantly refreshing the courier tracking page. The previous drop took 14days to reach me...
Well, you did prepare for an October delivery, it's still an early delivery even if you can only get your hands (fingers?) on it a month later ;)
Is this US layout only?
Is this a good alternative to a Vortex Race 3?

Maybe? It‘s less than half the price, has a fairly minimal case (but not quite as sleek). The keycaps are fine but not as classy, and it’s not programmable.
I really like it, but my next board will be a Race 3. But I’m going to wait for the next Race 3 with USB C & lower profile switches.
I intend to use one at work and one at home.

Too bad there's no Gateron switch close to a MX Clear, other than Zealios
Just a quick question, why does it take till October to ship?
Tai-Hao double shots plus GMK switch dampeners installed. I didn't like the normal white keycaps from the Tai-Hao set since it's off white and not bright white like the default Magicforce one.
I like it so far, just need to get the custom ctrl keys that are not standard width.

After much scheming... donezo! keycaps from PMK.

Ok, excited to get this bad boy. Immediately plugged in my braided cable and it doesn't work. It only powers with the cable supplied. Anybody got any light to shed on that?
MikeeTeevee
I've noticed this, too... I bought mine as a travel keyboard for when I work from collab spaces at my office, and I tried both the mini-usb cable that was at the station as well as the retractable one I'd been carrying and using with my P0k3r before. Did you ever get a reason as to why?
Keyboard has more than just the LED breathing effect. It appears to do the following backlight, 3 different reactive modes when a key is pressed and a few various light shows. also feels more solid and a little quieter with the same brown switches as my magicforce 68
Arrived, legends are more tasteful than I expecte.

Did anybody else from the recent drop get a shipping notification? It was estimated for July when I joined but I got a notice this morning that it's been shipped.
korbo
Yeah, i got it too, but when i try to track the package, it`s say that it's haven't shipped yet. Take to wait i guess
korbo
yup, me too. Pleasant surprise
So, fulfillment notwithstanding, the masochist in me is considering designing a custom cap set for this thing. Some of these key sizes seem a bit weird - who could produce them?

Is my above freehand assessment correct? (I’m new to this mech kb stuff)

If you want a nice overview of many of the popular alternative keyboard layouts, Livingspeed made one: https://www.massdrop.com/talk/947/keyboard-layouts-explained-in-detail-many-pics
If you want an idea of stock colors from many of the keycap suppliers, the Keyboard Layout Editor website has them, although it’s display of those colors is not so true. KLE is also useful for playing with layouts, but WASD’s is better for showing their own stock colors and true graphics.
dvorcol
awesome thank you!
I was so looking forward to joining this drop (despite the difficulties that other people have had with the previous MF82 drop) and ordering it, but then I noticed that it would be shipped from the 2nd of July...
That's four months from now! I need a mechanical keyboard now, because my current KB is broken. All these MassDrop deals are quite interesting considering the price, but the shipping dates are ridiculous.

Do you have any photos of your keyboard with this layout? And what brand & color switches do you have?
YJ93
Yep. I have the Magicforce 68-key keyboard, without the lights. The switches are blue, but I can't remember if they are the Gateron or Outemu brand switches.

For $5 more, you can get this on amazon prime (And you’ll have it before the end of the week, instead of god knows when) These drops don’t make sense. Stahhhp

Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Blue Backlight GATERON Brown Switch 82-Keys(80%) Wired Mini Design Keyboard-Case White by Qisan https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076LHZJH6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_oCPUAbHJN6AAS

The problem for me, with Amazon Deutschland, is that you can only get the one with the black case & white LEDs and brown switches for €90, because they have Cherry MX switches. I can get the white case & blue LEDs and Gateron brown switches for €65, but I just don't like the blue lighting.
Which is why this drop on MD could've been really great. You can choose the color of the case, the color of the LEDs, the color and brand of the switches and the color of the keycaps. Unfortunately, the manufactering process takes over four months because of this, so you have to be patient, which I am not.
There is no user manual on the server. Could you upload it again?

Mr.Hyde
Thank you!
Dropping this again so soon after the last fiasco with no items shipped and no communication, what a joke and very insulting.
Anyone even considering this should definitely think twice.

You got my feelings exactly right. Got an email for this drop today and I felt so insulted after I paid and waited for the last one just to have it canceled with basically no updates. Can't believe Massdrop would even go back to the manufacturer and/or the supplier. I am tempted to join the drop again though because I've been waiting so long to purchase a mkb within my budget.
fakenam3
Lol, i was considering this, but after your insightful comment, i no longer am. Thank you :)
I'd be interested with no LEDs and no switches, but I suppose they don't come out of a factory like that at all.
Given these options, Amazon works better for what I want.

I'm trying to get Input Club or 0.01 to make a 75% hotswap board.... fingers crossed!
Look up the XD84 if you just want the layout and don't care about hot-swap like me lol :D You can get an aluminum case with diffuser, steel plate, PCB, and cherry stabs for $120 and just add your own keycaps and switches.
Please, again...please state that it is ANSI, at least in the specs.
Don't bother. They had this a few months ago. They were a month late with no updates and then just cancelled the orders. Gigantic waste of time.
Looks like it's back on the market
If you were going to buy this keyboard with a black case, white keycaps, white back lighting and cherry mx brown switches, get it on amazon. Absolutely gorgeous keyboard, haven't have any problems yet! https://www.amazon.com/Mechanical-Keyboard-Backlight-Keyboard-Case-Qisan/dp/B06ZZWYZZQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1521343223&sr=1-1&keywords=magicforce+82
