Welp, this is disappointing. I figured I would join this drop for being ~$40 cheaper than other places and for the included spacebars, but now I'm probably going to have to get a refund and just buy it somewhere else, which unfortunately brings me back to where I started after 3 months of waiting (deciding where to buy this keyboard). Would've just bought it months ago off amazon if I knew this was going to happen..

Update: bought this keyboard on amazon with next day free shipping, I am typing on it now and the "thock" noises and tactility are really cool. It is something to get used to, though, it is very different as I've never tried topre switches before. It is growing on me quickly, though.
This is crazy. What exactly are we waiting for at this point? Are we going to have it by the end of the year? Next year? I know that the 3 month wait was just an "estimate" but when there is a delay this big, we should at least get some semblance of a notice.

Yeah, honestly, I don't think I'm going to be very interested in joining more drops at this point. This board has been sitting on Amazon with Prime shipping at ~225 the entire time. It is barely worth the discount for an assured 3 month timeframe let alone an uncertain amount of time with no communication. Really disappointed on this one. In the future, hold off on drops if you are not rock solid on the logistics and communicate with your customers if you don't want to lose them, Massdrop.
Any updates regarding about the shipping? While I don't mind the delay, I need to know the when it shipped out because I would traveling soon and I need to plains for somebody to received my package.
As per a support email: "It looks like this item is currently back ordered. We do not have any other update on the expected shipping date for this item at this time. I will reach out to our logistics team to see if I can gain any more information and if I do, I will be sure to reach out to you with it. Otherwise, an email will be sent to all members who have joined the drop when a new date is known." Bummer.

I don't mind waiting a little longer before cancelling, but it would be _really_ nice if we could get timely updates.
I just used the HELP CENTER at the bottom of the page and contacted them about this purchase telling them that I want to cancel the order. Just got a reply from them saying they're sorry and they're giving a refund.
It'd be pretty cool if we received some kind of communique regarding this drop..
totally forgot about this one just realized was supposed to be shipped last week, So massdrop whats going on? if they are MIA or EOL give us an option of full refund, then i could use the money to order the CTRL High-Profile or at least keep us updated whats going on , Whats up with the silence?
after 13 weeks of waiting, come on massdrop! :D
Massdrop - Can we get an update? We are past the estimated shipping window... even if the update is "no update" that is better than silence.

I submitted a ticket over the weekend and the response I received from Massdrop was that they do not have an update for us. They also do not have an ETA on when we could get an updated delivery date.
Pacwageo
That doesn't sound good i will be looking for full refund if i don't hear about any updates this week!
Three month wait for this board and late shipping on top of that? Pretty lame.

Massdrop handles everything. They will email when it finally ships then we get to wait another month for FedEx Smartpost to route the package around the globe 3 times.

Oh man :/
Anyone have their board shipped yet?
Russell_t3ap
Nope
So much anticipation in my fingers, im gonna get all up on that board uwu
That was 3 looooooong months.
Just curious, is this drop still on track to be shipped on the 25th? Has anyone heard anything?
Pacwageo
Nope. I'm also curious but lets hope they do ship it out in 2 days :)
If you have buyer's remorse, I will gladly buy it from you.
Oh wow there were only 70 of us in this latest drop. Hopefully that'll make processing and shipping faster. Cant wait!
jotante
yes hopefully I cant wait
Yay they have more than 3 uniform boards this time around😂 i managed to get one this time im excited for it
Why does this take three months to ship? I guess they are new from the factory?

Fingers crossed with only 70 people in the drop
This version is awesome, I have been using mine ever since I got them. The 55g might take some getting used to for some people. Personally, I love it!
Topre will stop producing every old style keyboards this year, so I think this is the last chance.

I want them to use old molds to make more design, rgb or what I don't care, honestly speak I don't really like their new keebs.

I completly agree, the only reason i didnt pick this one up is at this price id expect a removable cable which is a big thing for me because of the way my set up is cable managed.

I actually bought one of each color last time they had a drop. Wanted to try out the famed Topre 55g uniforms AND I wanted to switch the caps. Unfortunately, even the 55g is light for my fat fingers (currently typing on BOX Navies) so I do plan on selling the two Topre's. Anyone interested in a black case/beige keys or white case/black keys? If I have to, I could always switch the caps back but thought maybe someone would want the look I wanted. I really do dig the contrast.

I agree that is the better looking option for sure. However, I don't want to get stuck with the other one if no one wants it so I am going to try to sell that one first and if there is no interest I will just put the original keys back on and ebay them both
DLW1975
This might be a long shot but I would be interested in buying it if you still have it.
Does white case mean white case and black keys?

No problem!
should I get another one for home.. or hkkb or ..
Let me know if you are interested in buying my 55g uniform beige board!
Dalicanollie
hi i am interested

Please email me at dalilai519@gmail.com where we will discuss the rest.
I did not like the feel of 55g Topre.
it felt to mushy.... Luckily I sold it.
if anyone wants to try it out make sure to get the beige one as it is easier to sell.
Wow. I would have picked up a uniform 55g as an impulse buy but, I was saved by the lack of options.
MarinaSaturday
Honestly same here lol
Why so few 55g layouts? Weak sauce.
198 units? Only 10 people have joined this drop and everything but one option is sold out lol, that doesn't add up

Now the big question... is Massdrop reading our comments? Is there a reason for the lack of good options?
I think the Topre is a great keyboard. But the 55g uniform, while great, is really only great if it fits your preference and typing style.
Wowed by the lust heaped on the 55g, I purchased one from Massdrop a few years ago. It was my first Topre keyboard.
The quality is great, as it the fabled Torpre thock. Everything people raved about is true.
For me, however, the 55g action was just a little too stiff, and fatigued my fingers after a short while.
After that, I lusted after a 45g uniform, but ended up getting a variable weight. I am very, very happy with it and rarely use my 55g uniform anymore.
So it helps to know what your preferences are when choosing a key weight. If you don’t, you may be disappointed, even while you are using an otherwise superior product.
Had I been a little more experienced at the time and known that I prefer the feel of Browns over Clears, it would have chosen something lighter from the get-go.
Of course, it’s all part of the learning process. How can you really know you’ll like or not like a particular Topre key weight until you try it?
Short of actual getting your hands on a specific Topre, the best you can do is make an educated guess.
One thing I found a bit disappointing about the white colored Topre is that it’s not actually white with grey keys. It’s more of a beige keyboard with taupe colored keys, almost like something you’d see on an 80s style computer.
While that may be cool for some, it wasn’t what the picture suggested the color would be, and certainly not what I was expecting. Just a heads up on that.
Otherwise, it’s a pretty great keyboard. Just choose your key weight wisely and there’s a good chance you’ll be happy with a Topre.

Thanks for the info., just got a variable in white. Have been looking for a reason to get a Topre for a while and this seemed like as good as any!
Isn't the point of massdrop grouping together peoples money to order items that are either custom made or not easily found?
The fact that the most desired option, 55g uniform, isn't available here seems very confusing knowing what massdrop is.
Pool our orders, and make the order for the 55g uniform keyboards. Isn't this the entire point of this place?

It's a shame really.. they would sell so many more of these if they were able to source more of the uniform 45g/55g version. It's clearly the most sought after in the keyboard / topre community
