Can you buy the PCB board?
I would like this with the red aluminum plate.
Wondering why anyone would want to switch Gateron Blues for MX Blues, can understand upgrading the other way around. ;)
Max Keyboard doesn't even offer custom keyboards any more (according to email response a few weeks ago). The Nighthawk and Blackbird (non RGB) are discontinued. Why buy sample switches from a company that doesn't offer and products that use them? You can get used samplers on /r/mechmarket and GH forums for much cheaper, with a wider variety of switches.

You can still use different switches in this, maybe some people like the way it looks
This is great for finding the perfect switch that comes on a typical preassembled board. For all those people saying "oh it doesn't have this switch or that switch" Check out novelkeys.xyz
what was the price on this?
SYSTEM-GLITCH
23 dollars plus shipping.
I bought one with 8 keys, this wasnt enough, so I bought a big one and I dont use them at all. Why?
IMHO the main problem is that having >50 keys to type on a specific support is totally different from having one key to test on another specific support (=sampler tester kit): not the same feeling, not the same "click", not the same sound. Maybe a big improvement could be to have one row of 4 same keys so you can test with 4 fingers and have a closer feeling of what you'll get on a real keyboard, but right now I just feel like Sampler Tester Kit are useless.
doesnt even have mod switches
"Ultimate" Only includes Cherry and Gateron. "Mainstream" might have been a better name.
Let me buy the PCB you fucks!
Theodoooore
Maybe be a bit more polite, like "Could you please add an option for the optional PCB?".
Okaay quick question... WHY THE FUCK is it going to take soooo god damn fucking LONG to ship or whatever?????? Jul 14, 2017 was the date of purchase, so its not even planning on shipping for a whole month and a half after that date?? And that means what, that it probably won't be at my door for like another weekish or so after that???
Please let me know if this is incorrect, and I'm just tripping, that my math and shit is all messed up as well???

nvm
Not worth the price
AdiDrop
I'm inclined to agree. After tax and shipping, came out to $27ish, barely better than $29.99 regular price.

Can someone explain to me what the purpose of owning one of these is?

They also make excellent desk toys. Speaking as someone with ADHD.

Got mine today! Looks great but the caps are very uneven on the switches! :(

What did you get? My first was a Ducky Shine 1, many many years ago. Now I have 5 keyboards. Woops.
luv_sic
The magicforce 49 key! If you check my profile out I've been posting about it. And ya I'm addicted now too
Just received mine :D I am very pleased with it, as it is everything that it claimed to be. My only problem is that the keycaps are reeeaaalllly tight on the stems of the switches, which means as hard as I try I can't seem to get any of them off....
ElectricWolf
One of mine was so tight that while using a wire key cap puller, the switch came apart. I still cant get the cap off. I'm about to use vice grip pliers on the stem to yank it out. The switch metal leaf is damaged so theirs no point in playing nice now.
It would be nice if the macropad pcb was an option as well as a "master switch" pack to include the missing varieties.
haz no zealio, gets no feelio.
erickong
oh boy!
I'd like to join this drop but $22 is pretty steep for something that is essentially useless. I'd like to find out how each switch type feels since I only know reds but this is something I'd spend $5-$10 at most.

I heard u can solder and wire it to make it functional macro keys, I don't know if it applies to this set, but this is what I've heard... take this with grain of salt though, xD
Cherry Brown, a mistake? How dare you.
What row would the keycaps fit on if I were to put them on my keyboard? Thanks

I just received mine and I am using the purple one as my esc key :P
ElectricWolf
Same!
I don't quite get it, why would i ever buy this over this one with master pack? https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1620
I mean sure, it's not nearly as beautiful, but having 28 switches to try instead of 14.....For a better price too

It would be perfect if that tester had a PCB option as well, but for $27 shipped I'll be happy to try out all those extra switches. I really like that they have both linear and tactile MX gray, all the non MX and Gateron are really just a bonus.
Sir_Playsalot
Thanks! just put in my order for the master pack!  at ~$1 per key, it is a pretty alright deal imo. I was also interested in the other drop right now for that ludicrous 67 key tester, but not sure I want something that big on my desk...
No upgrade to include a PCB and make it a macro pad? Bummer
TelFiRE
You can purchase a PCB from max keyboard for $20
erickong
Thanks for pointing that out, however I can get the whole kit from MechanicalKeyboards.com for 40 shipped (and actually did order it before this drop) so I will just stick to that one.
I recieved mine in great condtion no marks. I uses it as a stress ball kind of prop at the moment. Now that my gateron switches came in time for a PCB then ill make a Gat yellow macro board

So this was my first purchase from Massdrop and I'm very happy with it. I received it in a timely manner, it was a better price than what was listed on the Max Keyboard website and shipping was free (saved me a couple bucks). I got order updates via email and the package came with everything as promised. After testing the switches, I think I like the cherry/gateron blacks with an o-ring
Just received mine, very nice!

Where are the key samplers with Topres Romer-gs, Matias and alps?
Geo80
www.novelkeys.xyz has these switches in stock, but I do not think they have topre. You could get Topre in a keychain from ebay
Hello everyone! Could this Tester Kit be delivered to Russia?
Marat
If the options allow you to join the drop and have it shipped to you then, yes.
This seems like a great deal
If only it came with topre-, hall effect-, buckling spring-, and alp-switches too.. To be an ULTIMATE tester?
*someone pls?*
Sterenke
Not exactly. With what you suggested along with Clueboard's offering (https://www.originativeco.com/products/cmyk-modifiers) along with MOD switches from originative, greetechs, kaihl, outemu, some fewer rarer ones from Cherry, Razer, and logitech's Roma-G, then, we're talking ULTIMATE.
