willing to buy one of these with the pcb!
The reinforcing plate material is not aluminum but steel and NumLock light problem, but I am satisfied with it.

Anyone having issue with numlock led? Mine seem to be working but the led stays white no matter how i change my spectrum :(
Hello, I just assembled mine. My numlock stays lit whether numlock is on or off.

I was wondering how you control the rgb lighting. Mine are a dim green, and I can't seem to figure out how to change it.

My Vortex Family
Vortex Vibe, Vortex Core, Vortex switch tester with Dye sub PBT DSA key caps.
...some strange Elf legend key caps...

I have been waiting for a firmware update to this so it would allow programmability as they have promised before however I have not seen such an update so i decided to tinker around a bit and found that the vortex 22 firmware can be updated to the Mistel Freeboard firmware. Current firmware is available here http://www.mistelkeyboard.com/firmware/ it will allow you to use the "2", "0" ,"00", and "." as the direction keys. Programmability when used with the MD600's accessory port as well.
hi everyone.... i forget to add the pcb :( where can i found one? i really want to die
There is a story that the reinforcing plate material is iron, not the promised aluminum material.
Have you checked?

Yesterday Vortex Vibe keyboard wonderful shipping notification, and Today Vortex 22 key switch tester..
Thanks for quick delivery...
Too much good!!


All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.Estimated ship date is June 6, 2018 PT.


Shipped on May 11, 2018 PT

DHL E commerce delivery is too late than I thought.
Finally vortex tester is arrived in local post office. May be tomorrow delivered...
It takes exactly 2 weeks since shipped May 11. PT. I expect 11 days...
But Vortex Vibe that was shipped early one day remains Germany due to transit facility.
DHL e commerce center said to me that Two delivery difference depends on seller choice to delivery.
Sorry for the delay.
Does anyone know a proper way to solder the RGB LEDs? I followed this guide: https://www.massdrop.com/talk/1633/vortex-switch-tester-rgb-numpad-conversion?utm_source=linkshare&referer=RQWW4N
but I'm wondering if the last drop has a different type of RGB LED. All my switches are working, except my LEDs don't seem to function, so I'm wondering if the newer drop has different LEDs shipped.
If anyone wants to sell me his/hers with PCB in Europe, I'd be glad to take it off your hands.
I don't want to wait til june for this to arrive (but I really want it tho), any other sites to get it?
Besides this, does anyone know if this will sound as low pitched as the vortex race 3 (which I love the sound)?

Currently, Vortex 22 key switch can used only as numeric pad and can not be programmed.
I found Cospad XD24 PCB on othersite and Plate screw hole postions are very similar in 3 position, Top Left , Top right, bottome right.
Cospad XD24 is even advertised up tp 24 keys-Two Mode:numpad/PAD or 1/2 Planck
This PCB and Vortex 22 key tester case can be assembled together?
I think It's very interesing way for 40% keyboard users.
I love Vorex keyboard design with low height and slim bezel housing case, So this programmable numeric pad have more funtionlity, but I don't give up Vortex Switch Tester.

How about this picture?
I think the left number pad is this vortex 22 key switch tester.
Is that right?
On Vortex 22 key switch manual,Using option PCB, Fn key is only for LED function.
Num Lock key support direction key or Pg Up/Down, Home, End key as like other number pad?
Manual have been reuploaded to the description page
dropping this here in case anyone is looking for it. :)
Any ideas on what the case colors look like compared to the other anodized aluminum Vortex keyboards?
Is the gray case the same gray as the Vortex Core? Is the silver case the same silver as the Vortex Vibe?
Why does the pcb have two different USB inputs? Can you daisy chain it to your keyboard?
I believe I'd read something in documentation about the one interface being intended for it to be plugged into another Vortex keyboard, but it doesn't seem to have ever been implemented or utilized.
