Only 15 people joined the drop.
What did they have like 1 Black in stock?
So glad I sold my kidney early for this.
Good to see the price is reduced bringing this down to only $105 before shipping, what a bargain, for a numpad,
Toprahh leaves you Brokahh! ♫♪
Let's be real this is a $100 realforce cap with bonus keypad
rumblehotep
But that RF cap is a really nice cap! It almost makes up for the throwaway keypad, I think.
costs as much as a keyboard damnnnn
~shameless plug~ anyone from australia interested to get this product? i can get them for a good price from my country reddit: briano1905 email: briano.g.1905@gmail.com
Have one for work since I travel a lot and input a lot of data. Best investment of $100 I've made. I'm considering getting another one but maybe next year or so when this drops again.
I've bought and made several numpads through MD, but none feel as great as a RF Topre.
lol over $100 for a numpad. But I guess you can charge as much as people are willing to pay for it.
100$ for le rubber dome???

Well gentlemen, I understand that if you live in the US then there are many choices you can choose regarding sellers and have many more shipping options than people like me who live in South East Asia where hardly any online stores would want to ship stuffs here. I'm glad I found Massdrop 2 years ago and since then it becomes my top choice when buying certain kind of stuffs. It is not the fastest shipping store but if it does ships to my location most of the time the shipping cost is reasonable and acceptable. Some online stores like Amazon sometimes sells stuffs for much less and ships within a few days but they don't ships electronics to my address, even if they do the cost would be very high which I'm not ok with.
Anyway, I got this numpad from last drop and it is sitting on the left of my HHKB. I was wondering what proper Topre board would feel like and I wonder if it would be a lot different from Royal Kludge Topre clone I got over a year ago. This was the cheapest Topre board I could get and besides I need a numpad for spreadsheet but I hate full size board so here it is. So I later bought HHKB when I visited Japan 'cause either store wouldn't ship to my address or some stores would but shipping is another 40-60$ extra(was going to Japan anyway so why not buy from store over there for 170$) Gotta admit that typing numbers with left hand is much slower than with right hand but I can manage.

100 buckeroons?
109.00 on elitekeyboard.com, regular price. No dye-sub extra key cap, though.
Over $100 for a num pad? You've got to be kidding me, I could get an entire mechanical keyboard with a numpad for the same if not less. Hell the entire mechanical keyboard I have now is a less than a third the price of this thing, albeit without a numpad, which is what led ne here.

I'm literally comparing the same switches. You can get this numpad only for over $100 or a full size kb for a little over twice that. The value proposition isn't even close, and there's no reason for this numpad to be this expensive, especially comparing it to similar products. This is a bad value for torpres, not just for a numpad
FredtheFailLord
Buying an 87U costs just as much as a 104U. You're still getting less keys, but paying just as much. Price isn't determined by a 1:1 mapping of how many keys are on a keyboard.
This drop is a bad deal. This numpad is sold for $110 by many American companies and ships out same day
EWBears
That RF keycap tho...
Overpriced in my opinion but to make it worse shipping takes way too long for the "deal" you're getting. Massdrop claims to have deals with lower prices but at a cost of almost a month. Please if you are willing to spend 100+ on a numpad at least get the better deal from elitekeyboards and pay 5 dollars more and get it sooner smh massdrop they really give you the deals.

That's Massdrop's bussiness model. Unless something is massdrop exclusive or a pre general release sale (a la K-Type), it is not worth buying.
These any good?
Ponoj
Eh
I could buy a fullsize Topre keyboard for $35 more, and get it in two days. Hmm..

Yeah, Topre Type Heavens are roughly $35 more. That's what I was referring to. I get the whole ergonomics thing, although presumably both hands would be on the keyboard to type. I suppose it is a situational thing.
Most people these days probably can't operate a numpad with the left hand--unless they are left handed. Which is a shame as I learned actually on a business calculator. I did some practice the other day and while not as fast as I used to be I still got about %80 speed of my right hand. I'll probably buy it from elitekeyboards though at some point.
I'm interested in picking up a numpad and I'd like to try out Topre switches, but from the last update (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/topre-realforce-numpad-bundle/talk/616957) it looks like the previous drop for this may have never been shipped.
ObscureReference
I'm pretty sure they shipped, massdrop has recently changed how they update drops from comments on the discussion page to emails to the users. although judging from the comments it may have not.
New years resolution is to no longer use massdrop....embarrassing how long this order is taking
Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.

So no update lol?
Kind of ridiculous that massdrop took our money basically 2 months before the product ships
I asked for a refund, any of you were answered? NOTE: Already refunded. Thanks @XiKuang

That price +shipping is almost as much as I paid for my Novatouch... and I still think it was expensive.
Pufff... I was in... BUT I have realized it has a 00 key... I can not stand the 00 key... in EU the 2u 0 key is the standard and I am quite fast writing numbers in blind mode. With 00 I would get wrong quite often I feel Argh!
You know what's really hilarious here, they are all crying about paying a little close to $105USD for a numpad.
Maybe this is why any HHKB will never be sold here ; )
Elrick
$220 for a keyboard is much more justifiable than $105 for a number pad, imho.
Elrick
I'm actually fine with paying that amount (I mean, not overjoyed, but I'm crazy enough to feel like it could be worth it), I just want to know more details before I do, because at this price (probably will be $200 CAD after exchange rates for Canada, shipping, and customs slapping fees on it) I need to be sure there's no pitfalls with using it on Linux. Unfortunately, either nobody out there really has talked about that, or my Google-Fu is weak.
