Hmmm.. tempting.. save $4 for 3 month ship time 🤔 lol.
willgreenzilla
my thoughts exactly
I can't tell if the keyboard im using is DOA. Tried plugging it in with the microusb-c cord, no lights come on. Switched the cord and it still isnt working. Is there something I'm missing?
I'll buy this if it drops. (And I can save a little bit of money of course)
Sam.F
Thank you! (bought from another account)
One can only dream that Pok3r x Topre will come true one day...
Nice little board. Keep in mind that the stabilizers might come horribly squawky from factory, though, so it wouln't be a bad idea to have some stabilizer lube at hand.

I think you'll have to desolder all the switches and add Dielectric Grease to the points where the stabilizers wire meets the plastic parts. You can also try adding the lubricant without desoldering, but I think it will not be as effective.
ealiagach
Yeah I don’t want to get any grease on the pcb or switches either. If only I was better at soldering
Can someone explain to me how is this a good geal? I mean you're supposed to save some money on a product when joining the drop, right?
For the MX Red switches it says 130,70$ with shipping & handling, which converts to about 111,93 Euros, Google says. I ordered a Poker 3 on german Amazon last week for 99,00 Euros.
The keyboard itself is great - typing on it right now. But the price here one massdrop... how? why? Am I missing something?
virtualxip
Yup, I don't understand. I can get the coolermaster masterkey S for $10 cheaper on Amazon than the price listed on MD.
Does anybody know whether we can add single color LEDs to the PCB?
Tony48307
Yes.

It's a little tough though, the solder points on the pcb are pre-filled and I struggled getting the solder out
I love Vortex low profile aluminum keyboard case like Vortex Vibe, Vortex Race3, Vortex Core. I could see gray key set added in this drop option. This Vortex Pok3R is still the same aluminum case like the previous model? I am looking forward to get new Pok3R with low profile aluminum case .
inflection
Should be. If you're after a spare frame and live in the US then PM me on geekhack (same user name) and I'll mail you mine. I'm only after the PCB/plate/switch assembly on this drop.
No MX Silver?
What is different with this over Amazon or mechanicalkeyboards.com? Est ship date is 0ct 08
All those great features but not backlighting. For those who dont use the lighting, they could just turn it off, but it takes away from the people who do use it.

We tend to do all sort of things to our keyboards so most would applaud barebone Pok3r with no keycaps or switches I guess. On the other hand there is plenty of eBay offerings and if you have alert set you can score it cheaply as I did ($80).
killyou
alas, I am not ready to give up my F1-12 and arrow keys yet. I heavily use multimedia and my F1-12 keys. I have to ease myself down as I just moved to a TKL keyboard from an extended full sized.
Sent a request for a refund as these are going to be delayed. Haven't heard back yet though...
Wil this drop again soon ? Mx clears please.
Huh. I just got a shipping notification -- are these shipping earlier than July?
hey im trying to sell mine barely used right now if anyone is interested in buying a used one

I am new join of the community. A simple question for the Poker3, is there media control key on board? Based on the review below, there is not media control keys. (at 4:50) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wjW-Or1jg8 The video is posted on 2015, I would like to double check if there was any firmware update which added the media control back. Thanks guys.

To confirm what Salieri said (Fn+QWESDF = multimedia keys, but not printed on keys) adding link to manual. http://www.vortexgear.tw/db/upload/webdata4/6vortex_201711192025078172.pdf

you guys are awesome!!!
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
So the case is grey and not black? Any place you can buy a POK3R with a black case?
callinallcreeps
you can find the black case version on Vortex office website. http://www.vortexgear.tw/vortex2_2.asp?kind=47&kind2=220&kind3=&kind4=997
I got this on the last drop and it's an amazing keyboard, but the included keycaps have started to fade already on the S & D keys. Not an issue since I've ordered some sculpted caps, but something to keep in mind.

I bought a CNC Aluminium case, so shouldn't be a problem ;)
Tazor
Exaclty that is the problem. i got an aluminium pok3r also, right after it was released and the paint lasted a year or so. On warm days you can peel the paint off with your fingernails. Problem is that you can not paint alu as easily as plastic, thats y usually you anodize it. But i would assume that vortex did some improvements on the painting process over the time.
Is this the same as the last one of these Massdrop sold that didn't register key presses and was virtually unusable?
I don't understand the savings here. You can get the same keyboard on https://mechanicalkeyboards.com for $5 more and you only have to wait 1 week with free shipping.
Edit: I guess it's not so good for US orders, maybe a better deal for international orders?

> maybe a better deal for international orders?
You are correct, although I'm not sure if this is a conscious effort by MD. And at $15 shipping it's a bargain.

International orders benefit a lot. Shipping from mechanicalkeyboards.com can get very pricey, I was looking at ordering a couple keycap sets and it racked up to >$35 shipping. I think a TKL keyboard I considered was around ~$45 shipping.

There is a board for every Jack/Rose

Poker II just went live in case you wanted to pick one https://www.massdrop.com/buy/new-poker-ii-mechanical-keyboard
can you repost the user manual the download expired ?
Should I buy this or the Planck ?
LiangShui
depends if you're into ortholinear keyboards. personally i don't like how every key is assembled in a grid, because i need to bend my wrists in an uncomfortable position. if your wrists are parallel to your arms, then regular layouts follow the "bend" of your fingers anyway, if you get what i mean.
To verify: this drop has no backlighting except the status lights under the spacebar, correct?

Is this going to drop again soon? I hope it comes with Clear Cherry MX switches.
Recieved my White | Clear Cherry MX board today. This is my first mech board. it is EPIC.
Mine just arrived. This thing is a TANK! Also got a low profile Silver case and a braided coil cord coming, but really like the stock key caps on this, and is so quick to type on.
Really glad I went for this and not some more over the top or larger board.
