Where are the switches? I got mine with the PCB, the keycaps, and the case, but no switches!! Is there a one star rating review option? I'm upset, but this is also hilarious. A switch tester with no switches, WOW!
Oh I'm not the only one. I thought switches would be included. Got mine today with no switches

I checked my email and got the same response. At least they'll provide a full refund for our trouble, which is very nice of them.
No switches here either (just got mine today).
Here is what I got concerning this:
"Toby here with Massdrop Community Support, thank you for reaching out and bringing this to our attention. I'm sorry to hear that your switch tester arrived without switches. This issue has also been reported by other members, so we have a dedicated team handling these inquiries. I am going to forward your case over to them because they will be able to better assist you.
They'll be in touch as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience. If you have any other concerns or additional information to provide, feel free to reply to this email and a member of the team will follow up with you as soon as your case has been reviewed. "
No switches. I was going to solder some cherry mx blues so I have some on order along with stabilizers, but really. Massdrop? Between this and the order of SA key caps I waited for six months for before they were cancelled, I expect better.

Same here. I just got mine today, and no switches!

No switches in mine either.
Unfortunately all they are going to do for those of us that didn't get switches is give us a return. I have no idea how they dropped the ball on this, but it makes me leery of doing business with them again. Anybody else have a good source for a switch tester?
I thought this was supposed to come with switches? (no switches here either)
Same with me. Got mine yesterday with no switches.
Got mine in the mail today and the switches are missing. Received the keycaps and the aluminum frame, but no switches. Whats going on Massdrop, please help asap

Same here! Not a single switch

Also got mine today with no switches!
Just got mine in the mail with the PCB v4.0 The switches are nice and the plate is solid and the correct color. The PCB is apparently still pretty much garbage. Only one key press at a time without serious lag. Wish I had done more research about how bad the PCB was/is before I bought this.
Mine came pretty much as expected, except for the Gaterons I got a green instead of the advertised black. Not a big deal.

indeed, that's why in don't realy get this.

So the one linked has all the same switches too? Cause it would be one thing if massdrop was buying the cases and adding a selection of switches, but I can find the same exact product even with a PCB included so I absolutely don't get this drop either
Was going to go on about how they ripped off the Corsair K series aluminium keyboards but they openly stated that they ripp off the Corsair design (they said case instead of keyboard so they would not get sued) and as a proud owner of the Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire I would want this but there is NO black colour for the top plate and it won’t match my setup
With the shipping fees, there isn't much of an actual steal on this drop. It'll end up like a dollar cheaper than it retails for.
Found a cheaper one available at https://www.blinq.com/detail/electronics/computer-accessories/keyboards-mice/npkc-no-keycaps-no-o-rings-17-switch-tester and ordered it instead. No wait either. Limited supply though.
I already informed MassDrop about this but they still went ahead and put the drop out again. DO NOT TRUST THE IMAGES. The colors are LIES and MassDrop doesn't seem to care.

I like your color even more actually.

Well, I hate it. It's not what I bought and it was a bummer to wait months for what I thought was the perfect color only to get a color I'm not even remotely interested in.
Any updates on if the PCB is available separately or will be? I already know about Dirty PCBs, I don't want a 10 pack.
Also, how's Version 3 of the PCB?
Is there any way to change the led lighting mode? Default seems to be numlock on and all other keys react when any key is pressed. Can I change that to all on all the time?
As a switch tester it's perfectly functional. It is, however, not cast aluminium (it's cut/bent) - the anodising is nice and even though. And mine's come out more or less the colour I expected.
The extra circuit board (at least on mine) is a poor fit. I suspect I'm going to have to drill out and wire at least two of the connections as the board won't fit in place with the keys inserted. The keys were inserted in the wrong orientation to fit the board, and required some fairly significant bending once corrected to get the pins to fit. That is pretty disappointing.
Wow. How insanely disappointing. The color I received was not even remotely close to the one in the pictures.

Sorry for the poor quality editing but you can tell there's zero similarity between the colors. They might as well have sent me an orange one, I don't want this. I bought for the color.

Can I buy JUST the PCB? Mine shorted out from the last drop.

Hopefully @Durnlaw already found this if that's the route they went, but for anyone else looking, the BOM for that PCB is here: https://github.com/VinnyCordeiro/tmk_keyboard/blob/master/keyboard/AUNK_Numpad/BOM.txt

Thank you kindly. :) The project had to be placed on hold but this will be useful for when I can start again.
Is there a top view of the keycaps, I'd like know if the switch color can be seen from above.
Also, with keypad PCB (+ $9), would this include the cord (idk)->usb to power it?

massdrop pls
The plate has definitely been stamped, not cast.
I have one of these with the PCB and it works fine except the LEDs are on the bottom instead of the top so lighted keycaps don't look as good as they could. But as a cheap numpad it works fine.
What kind of O-Rings were used in this drop?
Pin is not joined on PCB board.
just got mine and didnt realize that this would have made a great num pad for my TKL stuff, is there any way to go buy a PCB board? What exactly does that entail? hmu thetrevorpage@gmail.com if anyone in the community knows the answer, or we could do like a facebook chat or google hangout chat. Whatever works, or i guess answer here!
Just received in NZ. Awesome, wife tested the switches and already decided which she likes, and so have I - now to watch the drops for keyboards...
When can I receive the item in Korea?
So it was supposed to ship yesterday... But I am sure we will hear from them in a couple of months to let us know it is delayed.

Isn't massdrop just the best?
