Anyone get their clears?
tis back in stock!
Received mine just now. Haven't assembled yet, but all parts seem to be present. The plate is somewhat scratched (both sides), but the metal is textured by itself, so it's not a big deal.
Edit: also noticed both legs are broken off on two of the switches, and one's missing on another one. Again, they are not required to be there for this product, so no biggie, but yeah, next time I suggest you use more safe packaging.
Got my package today. It was a big hole in both the packaging and the clear plastic bag the components for the tester was in. Only got 2 screws, and 3 legs.......the back of the plate was really scratched aswell. You seriously need to sort out how you package these.

I feel like the issues with damaged packages is probably to do with the various shipping standards in different countries. Where envelope post is handled with letters or on its own there should be no issues, and the package should arrive in good condition (as mine did yesterday). However, the packaging just won't hold up if an item like this is handled with boxes at any point in the shipping. For a lot of places, this would likely only occur in customs or preliminary sorting, but even then it's enough for the package to arrive damaged.
It's unfortunate that people have been having trouble, and hopefully we'll see QWER making an effort to change their packaging procedures when shipping internationally in the future.

Sorry to hear your QWER tester arrived damaged! Get in touch with Massdrop and they should be able to sort you out. If not, drop me an email on our site and I'll get you a replacement sorted.
I received my package today! Everything looks intact and present - except the clear switch I mailed QWERKeys about receiving (their offer of adding it to the drop if you notify them).
When will this be sent? I'm in Denmark, EU by the way for those wondering what the shipping times are.

Haven't received the Clears yet, but when I do you will be notified!

What's the status on the clears? 40 days wait on a product seems a bit much, even for clears. Are you getting them direct from CherryCorp, or from a third party?
Grabbing one ASAP! Need to get me a Mech Keyboard!
Got my tester as well. The back of the metal plate is scratched, but I don't really mind as it's unseen. However, the tester is a bit shaky when I place it on table...
Btw, will there be a 8-key tester? Eager to get one as well.

Is the plate flat? Try taking the feet off and placing it in a table or something, could be a chance it got bent during transit. Might have a spare one if MD don't.
QWERTim
Have unscrewed to check: the plate is slightly bent. Manage to bend it the other way and now it's standing great! Thanks for offering to send a replacement, but it's okay now. :)
Btw, is an 8-key selling soon? Worried I am not fast enough to get one for myself :P
Got my tester, back of metal plate was severely scratched/cracked. All parts present.

Shoot us an email at support@massdrop.com, we'll hook you up with a replacement.
Update: Did some soldering to make it more useful: https://plus.google.com/106976163883228641472/posts/BrajtU2NH1g

Very cool! Pics of the underside?
QWERTim
Better not, I did some horrible soldering there ;-)
Got my package in Germany today. No trip to customs necessary. Thanks!
Got mine today too. Also thought I was missing a bolt, turns out it was stuck inside one of the keys.
Finally get to try out all the different keys, still can't decide which one I like most :(
Received my package! However I was missing a bolt :(
Hey everyone, As of this morning all the orders within this drop have been shipped! Thanks again for the support guys, and please feel free to share your experience of the QWERkeys with the rest of the group afterwards. If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to email us at support@massdrop.com.
Alright, let the betting begin. Will my Decibullz molds arrive before or after the QWERkeys tester? I'll put 5 Dollarz on the Decibullz by 2 business Dayz.
Anyone from Australia received their order yet? Got the email on the 15th Feb that it was being shipped. I'm also getting "Not Found" on my shipment number. Hope this all works out.

Thanks for clarifying.
Thanks, nelson. I've got my tester today :)
I can't find the original description. Can anyone tell us what exact Cherry switches come with this sampler, and what their color is? Thanks.
valnar
The kit "contains Cherry MX Blue, Red, Brown, White, Black and Green switches".
For future reference, you can click 'Description' at the top of the page to see the original description for a drop at any time.
I'm having trouble getting my shipment too... The USPS tracking displays "in Transit", but there have been no updates since February 18th. USPS does not know where it is either. Kinda bummed since the MD warehouse (Mira Loma, CA) was like 20 minutes from where I live. Looks like I may have ended up waiting for nothing.
Haven't got the package yet. USPS says "not found" in shipping. How long am I supposed to wait for it? I know it's an international order and it should take some time. But it's already a week.
Got this in the mail finally; however, it is missing a screw and also missing the rubber pads. What the heck massdrop??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get in touch with Massdrop - should have everything there! Any problems, I can send some over.
Umm... was this supposed to come with key caps? It doesn't seem like I got any with my shipment.

I would suggest you get in touch with Massdrop!
QWERTim
Done!
My order still says Drop Status: Order enroute to Massdrop fulfillment center.
This has been a really long wait... how much longer until my tester gets shipped to me?
I'm not going to lie, the delivery was very disappointing. Not only was the delivery long overdue, the package came to me with no proper care, small bubblewrapped envelope, and switches all loose and exposed. Anyone else have their switches not packaged well?
sk1p2my1u
They should have been in a plastic bag, with the Union Jack flag bag?
So did anything ever come to be as far as those who bought this getting the other two color (I think there were two others not included in this Drop IIRC) Cherry switches?
Got mine today, must say it's pretty nifty. I never thought I'd like blues the best but now I'm certain I do. Can't wait to try a clear though when that gets setup.
Just got mine today. Put it together without tools cause im hardcore like that. Seriously happy now cause it confirms that me picking blues for my ergoDox was the right call. thanks guys!
Is anyone else met with a 'Not Found' message when trying to track through USPS?

Yeah, you're right. My eyes are getting too old for close small stuff. :-}
Still, a T-8 works perfectly! ;-)
EWTHeckman
Ahh it does too, never really thought about it!
What was the drop price of these testers?
I just got the shipping notification shortly ago - I'm pretty bummed that it ships via USPS, from America. I'm in Germany, and UK is right around the corner. This means I'll need to take a 45 minute drive to the customs office to pay taxes which I wouldn't have to do if it was shipped from UK without a stupid detour to America.
Looks like my email in which I asked if I can get a clear switch & if shipping from UK was feasible was ignored too... Kind of a bad first Massdrop experience...

Taxes for USPS, like... regular mail? Man, that sucks. And to be fair - those extras like clears depended on vendors stance on the drop, so MD can't really help with such things.
And that's the point of the massdrop in the end - getting goods in large quantities and shipping them in bulk in one package to one place - and here's where most savings come from and where MD gets their bulk discount. If they will impose the shipping of actual good to the vendor - then what's the point of this service in first place?
Though I agree it can be a bit frustrating for a package to make 2 half of the world trips to get to destination :)
the-kenny
Hey the-kenny. After looking into fulfilling the EU orders ourselves, it was actually cheaper and quicker for Massdrop to handle the orders. for us. As for the clear switch, I'm not sure I've had an email from you? I reply to every single email I get - I make it a point - so email me again (tim@qwerkeys.co.uk).
So... where are they?
Hey everyone, We have just been by QWERTi@QWERTimthe order has been shipped out. We have already alerted our warehouse staff about this shipment, so we should be able to process the bulk shipment upon arrival, and repackage them into individual orders before shipping them out to everyone very quickly. Cheers!
