Hey everyone, Welcome to another round of the Keyboard Re-Store. This will be launching on Saturday, December 15 at 6 am P.T. It will be similar to the Keyboard Re-Stores of the past in that we’ll be limiting the drop to 2 keyboards per user initially. We will open it up to more quantities on Sunday and onwards if there is demand for it. This is intended to give everyone a chance to grab something they’d like and not have everything disappear right away. Some notes about the various keyboards we are selling: - Planck - These are the Rev5 and prior Plancks, which means they do not have Kaihua hot swap sockets on the PCB. This means you will have to solder switches for the kits. Note that switches are not included, but we do have a few switch drops going on right now including the Halos switches (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-halo-switch-pack) which are available to ship immediately if you don’t want to wait. - Preonic - These are units prior to Rev3 for the Preonic. So similar to the Planck, it will not have hot swap sockets on the PCB nor does it ship with switches. - Planck Light - These were from the first run of the Planck Light. It will ship with an ISP flasher device in order for everyone to reprogram their Planck Light as needed. - Tokyo60 - these are Season 1 Tokyo60 units. - WhiteFox / Z70 - these were from prior runs and quantities are very limited. They do have switches with the kits. We are excited to make these types of drops more regular and we hope everyone enjoys the holidays with their friends and family.

It should be mapped as Ctrl by default, so it wouldn't behave as a toggle. Can you confirm it still doesn't work?

i figured it out,thanks though.

Hey everyone. We've increased the limit per user to 4.
Please drop this again soon
okay ill be honest i picked the wrong keyboard i wanted a planck but accidently bought the z70 at first i was mad but then i said whatever and rolled with it. i now have the keyboard and am using it to type right now its not bad. BUT theres some sort of issue where it isnt grounding right and causing my audio to have a loud whine whenever my hands come close to it so i think im gonna be shelkving this keyboard its a shame because i really wanted to like this board but the whining noise will make me go deaf
Think there might another Rose Gold Tokyo keyboard before the end of the drop?
vanderwald
theres one right now without keycaps, letting you know
SeaBui
Ahh thanks. Just missed it before the end of the drop
hmm wonder if i can use Tokyo60 housing for HHKB pro 2
I have an extra brown switches Z70 in black I'd be willing to sell too :P
Sloblo
yeah I could be interested...
I joined for a Tokyo60, can anyone confirm whether or not the kit comes with stabilizers?
will_force
Any answer for this question?
There is something weird about this drop. I got the complete Planck (rev3) for less than 130 on its own drop. But in this drop a Case + PCB (pre-rev5) alone is 102? The Case and PCB(rev5/6) both cost 50 on OLKB website. That's 100 bucks. Where is the group buy discount???
bsastor
This drop also includes a plate, which would not be included in the 100 bucks from OLKB. However, that would still be a less than 10% discount and probably no discount at all when you consider that the pre-rev6 PCBs included here were most likely significantly cheaper to produce because they didn't have the switch sockets that the PCBs on OLKB have. I believe OLKB and Massdrop also use different factories for the cases, but I don't really know how that affects quality. (I'm happy with my Massdrop Planck case for what it's worth)
gimpel
Me too, i'm extremely happy with what i got a year ago. Now i can't go back to normal keebs. If i were to get one now it will probably be the new rev6 PCB instead of the old ones in this drop. The hot-swap sockets are definitely the deciding factor.
which Planck option do i need to choose to get the slimed MX Low profile pictured ?
ScientistTotoro
That would be the Planck Light. They are using the Kaihua low profile switches.
Ugh I'm so sad the rose gold Tokyo60s went so fast. I've been regretting not getting one since the original drop ended. Dunno how I missed this too 😭

Thanks friend!! Managed to snatch it up! :D
dr_unconscionable

thanks!
yeah i dont udnerstand the pricing on massdrop. its rarely better. i can order this from asia for cheaper and itll prolly take roughly the same time to get here, maybe even faster :/
Why not label the pics Massdrop?
Anyone happen to know what switches some with the Tokyo60? And are they soldered in?
pattycakes
No soldering needed for the Tokyo60 it uses a hot-swappaple PCB.
Will the z70 be available with a black aluminum case, top printed pbt key caps and Cherry MX blue?
If "high pro" is not mention at the item, is it all low pro?
(Edited)

I would assume low pro if high pro isn't stated. There are no rev5 or prior mid pro.
The ones from the drop that included mid-profile cases haven't been produced yet, so all of these are from earlier, using an older PCB without the hot-swap feature.
Just placed an order for the Planck HiPro with XDA Canvas Betas + Icon Mods - the kit comes with a Matias compatible plate but the keycaps are MX Compatible (At least that's what it says). Is this an error? I'm kind of new to the game so if it isn't an error can someone explain to me how that works? In any case I ordered primarily for the keycaps so I don't mind going out and purchasing a new plate.
redthebeing
I ordered that exact combo last re-store so it is no error. Just very odd. I got my Matias compatible plate and MX compatible keycaps.
hampusk
Thank you, now I can continue my search for switches.
which one is the slim RGB keyboard shown in the photo?
rossb2
Planck Light
Does the Tokyo60 allow for MX Cherry switches with the given PCB?
pattycakes
Yes
I tried the search option as described but can't make heads or tails of the Planck versions. Anyone have an idea how to tell V5 vs V6? Is V6 even available? The high profile cases got me excited. Wow, the MX preonics sold out quick...
ZevB
V6 is not available, all the Plancks (and Preonics) don't have the switch hot-swap feature. Looks like the description is a bit of a lie.
preonic sold out :(
what about international shipping?
What case is the Preonic round 2?

No, that's the first Preonic. Rev2 looks like this:

Thanks
What is the hhkb black kB name?

It has to be R1 since R2 hasn't shipped yet.

It's a great keyboard. I have Halo trues on them and it is my main keyboard now
  • "For detailed information about each product, type it into the search bar to see the drop page."
haha! Good alternative to linking to the products I guess.
wontonotnow
Probably because this particular drop page is mostly universal. For every time they post it, the stock of products varies greatly.
Cyphre
For awhile I tried clicking on pictures or product names, because you know...this is the internet? I should have known this was boilerplate. Why should they make links as they change the pictures? Just kidding, I enjoy poking massdrop. Those wtf moments while trying to spend money I don't have on things I don't need.
What are the Preonic numbers looking like? Sell out instantly numbers?
I really want a blank mechanical keyboard... But... It's almost 2019. Self driving cars are not future anymore. Maybe it's time to make a "magic" wireless keyboard. I mean with no wires. I mean, like civilized people used to do 20 years ago.

ProProposer
Perhaps a question you should raise on GH or r/mk. This drop is for leftovers from previous drops.
What revision is the plank keyboard with pbt caps?
Did anyone else get the preonic kit with canvas betas? Just found out I have a misprint set. 🤦🏾‍♀️
i neeeeeeeeed the 0.01 z70!!!

Here's your chance!
