Straight up the best keyboard I've owned.

I want ten.

I'm really struggling deciding if I want to keep this keyboard at work or home.
Get hype! Got confirmation that this was shipped.
Does anyone know what it specifically means when they say "In addition, the VA87MR is comptiable with Macs"? With keyboards being simply USB connected how is a keyboard *not* Mac compatible?

Not all controllers are compatible with Apple's software. Specifically, the original Varmilo VA87M did not work with Macs due to the specific implementation of NKRO they used. The newer VA87MR fixed that issue and now works fine with OS X.

Awesome. Thanks for the reply!
New to mechanical keyboards, what's the difference between white and mint laser front printed? It it just the color?

Yes. The mint is very green.
Got my keyboard a week ago or so, finally got to unpack it.
I don't have much experience with boards, other than my trusty Corsair K60 with reds.

Still, a couple of remarks:
1. The legs are a bit too tall IMO. Feels like a typewriter when I use them (not that this is a bad thing, but still a thing to note)
2. If you plan to use some fancy cable with it (like I planned to get something along these lines https://www.massdrop.com/buy/diamond-patterned-techflex-usb-cables), don't bother. The connector is passed through a small notch, so a thicker cable will not fit in it, I think. See attached picture.
Am I seeing things or is Massdrop shipping something early for once.
Warning, I bought a Varmilo VA87MR here on Massdrop. I received it in May of 2017. It's now December, and the "alt" keys stopped working. Varmilo told me to pursue warranty through Massdrop, but Massdrop says they only have a 30 day warranty. Varmilo keyboards are supposed to have a 1 year warranty, but no one is honoring it. I will not be purchasing another Varmilo keyboard, especially not through Massdrop.

Hi, have you ever tried firmware upgrade?
Varmilo-rep
Yes, I did a firmware upgrade. No luck. I'll be throwing it away and going back to a WASD keyboard. It's too bad, I was really enjoying the Varmilo up until this point.
In the picture of the keyboard you can clearly see Gateron switches with clear top, which I'm guessing spreads the LED color better than the Cherry MX black tops will. Is that a safe assumption that since Cherry MX switches are used, the tops will be the factory black?
I'm new here. Anybody knows why these drops ship so late? February 2018 is 3 months from now.

Because the order isn't submitted to manufacturer until the drop ends, so they have to be manufactured after that. And the date Massdrop counts as being shipped is when they have a US shipping label, so they need to get into the country first.
Does anyone have pictures of the Key Color/Style options?
I just got a tracking number. Nice!
So sad that none of the keyboard on Massdrop are available in ISO layouts.
More pics of the available configurations?
I've been using this keyboard everyday for a good while now with cherry mx brown switches and it's great, no complaints at all. Now that I've tried PBT switches I won't go back to ABS.
