These keycaps are heinous but the layout is fantastic. Please make this happen, Massdrop gods!
Make this drop happen please!
When did this last drop?
Need this so bad!
I need this drop so bad!
Any news about this happening?
I've had this board for a year now and no real complaints. The only thing is that the keycaps have definitely been faded away, which was disappointing. Also the uncommon space bar size has made fully changing the keycaps a nightmare. Overall, I'm satisfied with the purchase since it had the form factor and functionality that I wanted, with no practical issues to speak of. However, I do wish the keycaps were a little more durable and that the space bar wasn't such a funky size.
Have Noppoo fixed the problems in their later models where sometimes pressing a button makes it enter it twice? Also, those who have been having this problem: were your keys Gateron or Kailh or genuine Cherry?
I'd love one of these with Cherry MX-Browns, if they're still being made.
I've had mine for about half a year now, and I'm honestly a little disappointed in the quality. The keycaps started rubbing off but I just bought new ones so that was all right. Now, the e and d keys will randomly double-type. I've tried switching cables and adjusting the debounce, but neither of thesee helped. Also, the control key doesn't work consistently - sometimes it registeers, sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes if I hold it down it'll toggle back andd forth. For a $100 keyboard, this is very disappointing quality. I don't think I'll be buying a Noppoo again.

I have a razer blackwidow, it has the same problem. Most of the time when i type an 'o' it double types it. A month ago i couldn't even type an 'x', and now it just double types it. It is barely a year old, i think the quality is pretty bad considering the price.
I hope there are options for switches beyond black and red next time this comes around. I picked up one of these with brown switches a while back, and would definitely grab another. I might try clear in the absence of brown.
Well mine came today.

Was thinking of doing a little unboxing in a bit. Because this is my 5th mech keyboard and I think it will serve me as long as my 10yr-old Filco did. Brown->Red->Blue->Green->Red :D

Would it be hard to desolder all the Black/Red switches and replace them with tactile switches, like Brown or Blue? I can solder semi-decently without burning myself :)
This doesn't have a detachable cable does it?

According to amazon reviews, no.
The spacebar on this is obviously a weird size to fit the key layout...it looks like 5.5 keys to me. It seems highly unlikely, but are there any replacement keycap sets or individual spacebars that will fit the spacebar?
Wireless version in MX blues again, please! :)
SwedishChef
I second that. Please bring back the wireless Choc mini with Blue switches
I bought the wireless version of this board last summer from Massdrop. The initial unit was defective, but after getting it sorted via Henry (thanks again Henry!) I got a great keyboard. I like it so much, in fact, that I'm going for this drop to get one with black switches rather than the blues in my wireless.

You should have gone for the Keycool 84 a few weeks back just to try new things :). I can't wait for my keycool 84 to arrive.

I was actually holding out for a Poker with black switches, but I did want to try this one with the POM keycaps (my backlit 2M has PC/PU keycaps). Anyway, by now I'm familiar with, and love the layout of the Choc Mini. The keycool does look nice, though, don't get me wrong!
For the next drop of these, let's go wireless and add more options for switches like Browns, Blues, and whatever else the manufacturer can get their hands on. Me hating linear Cherry switches is just my preference, but considering how many people have joined this drop so far, I'd say they particularly don't care for the MX Red or Black switches. Just a suggestion and observation.

Well that's unfortunate. I generally just hate linear switches if they're the only switch used on a board. They're more useful in hybrid boards and I generally just need a keyboard for typing. Gaming always comes second. :)
Yeah from what I could see there's nothing out there. It's too bad honestly, I really like the form factor. It's reminiscent of the KBT pro
If it only had backlighting and Cherry MX Blue switches.
Is the keyboard backlight or are the keys just dual legends? The keyboard isn't programmable, so different keymaps would require a software change right?
Would have been interested if it had MXBlues
I keep waiting to see this with MX clears.
I have the gen1 version of this that had the pom keycaps and the delete key and end key locations swapped. Mine is in MX-Brown though Easily the best feeling keyboard I have every typed on and I have owned Das, logitechs, razers, KBT, CM, and filcos. I'm curious what changes beyond keycap material and location of keys they have made and I hope its not for the worst.
Does this have Cherry or Costar stabilizers? I could have sworn they are Costar but thought I read it might have had some batches with Cherry. Or maybe this is Keycool I am thinking of?
Corsair is the built in stabilizers and cherry is the wire with the plastic inserts right? It has the Cherry. The stabilizers are very tight, making them tough to swap keys but they feel fantastic, not even a hint of wobble.
I want this layout! Its damn near perfect. Unfortunately my fingers cringe when using linear switches.
