Just received mine today! Did anyone else find some of the key caps off the board also? O.o On too loose or something...

Got mine today, everything was ok with it.
I just got a " Your package has shipped! " email! Sound like it was not January after all.
carlosjuarbe
Same here. Fingers crossed!!
I need to have this!
Anyone have any experience of wait times? January seems a long time to wait
Can this be programmed for a Spanish Keyboard?
is this available in nordic mac layout?
Its a decent deal for Canadians with the shipping cheaper than mechanicalkeyboards.com but its too bad it ships so late

I got mine within 2 weeks when it said I could expect to wait until November - could have just been lucky I guess
Looks like the Race 3 is now available for pre-order at mechanicalkeyboards.com to ship in September. Probably worth it for the extra $10.

I pre-ordered the race 3 with mx clears two days ago. Estimated arrival date on the website so far is September 1st. Hopefully my order doesn't get pushed back much like it has with other users.

It took mechanicalkeyboards.com 9 weeks to get my poker from NY to Alberta. Literally never giving them a red cent again.
My order was filled but didn't ship for over a week after they had my money. The support guys were pretty useless in tracking my shipment too.
Was thinking about building a KBD75, but then this drops... Decisions. How customizable would the Race 3 be vs the KBD75. I know I will have more limited choice in switches (unless i want to desolder) but this is also cheaper. Would the KBD75 be worth the cost over the Race3?

The Esc and Delete keys are pretty unique and not so easy to replace...

I own a Race 3 with Brown switches and I just ordered a pre-assembled KBD75 with Zealios the other day. While I love my Race 3, I wanted Zealio switch and hi-pro case. I anticipate better tactility and acoustics with the KBD75, but I also recognize I paid double what I paid for the Race 3.
If you don't mind the Cherry switches, Race 3 is a great value and I highly recommend it. If you chose clear switches on the Race 3, be super careful when swapping out keycaps - there are numerous reports of people pulling out the entire stem.
Do these ever ship earlier than anticipated? Been wanting to cop a Race 3 but to wait until January...
somasatellite
I want to know the same thing. January is too long of a wait.
Does anyone know of any custom key cap sets that have the odd shaped ESC button included? I have this keyboard and although the key caps are nice, I want to change the aesthetic. Love the keyboard though. I have it in MX browns.

Many keysets offer add-ons that include the 1.5u escape and delete keys. I joined the XDA canvas drop which offered those specific keycaps
This keyboard would be perfect for me if it had RGB backlighting while still having the PBT keycaps...
This is absolutely amazing! Just received my Race 3 today. Its supposed to be shipped only until this November!
I hope to add cherry mx silent-red option to the next drop
Hey guys, I just got a message from Massdrop stating that my Race 3 has been shipped. Well... Its still several months away from November... Anyone else got it too?
Obscene324
Same here... That would be a miracle, but I suspect it may be a mix up from the last drop which was scheduled to ship in July.
The product has remained in Germany IPZ for more than 21 days.
can i ask about when the re-order open?
is the keyboard heavy like the pok3r?! steel or aluminum case?!

My bad...2018...haha. I find vortex keys to be really stiff at the start. I tried browns and reds from other keyboards and vortex by far is much stiffer. Could be the PBT caps? It changes the whole feel of the switch. My silvers are far heavier than any reds I've tried.
ez_flow
hmm.. could be the caps!! i had browns on an old coolermaster TKL keyboard and reds on my pok3r. personally, it's hard to say which one i like better.
I will be waiting for the new version though, coming with low profile RGB red switch and USB-C.

Don’t know. Staff from vortex said cherry delayed delivery of low profile switches. Probably due to high demands, I guess.
wolix
Shoot, guess we'll just have to keep an eye out.
as of right now in the USA,
this keyboard, cherry brown, blue, red switches $139.99. This is link for brown, other listings for the other switches https://www.amazon.com/Vortex-75-Keycaps-Mx-Brown-Aluminium/dp/B071J5WTT6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1529999568&sr=8-3&keywords=75%25+keyboard
this keyboard, cherry clear switches $149.99 https://www.amazon.com/Vortex-75-Keycaps-Mx-Clear-Aluminium/dp/B072LZ2YRM/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1529999568&sr=8-7&keywords=75%25+keyboard
if waiting for shipping in November is too much, it might be worth spending another $10-20 on Amazon for the same product

I can’t find one with speed silver anyone know where I can get one without waiting till NOV?
Justalouie
with speed silver, not sure
Damn I've been waiting for this drop for awhile but am really conflicted on the pricing. I can get these for roughly $168 locally (same price for all switches).
Was hoping to get either clears/silvers since I already have browns & reds(not gonna get blues to avoid getting slaughtered by colleagues) so I'm not sure whether the savings will be worth the 4 months wait.
ARGHHH DECISIONS.

I purchased locally from xtremesolutions just to get peace of mind in warranty? you never know what will happen :P
Hikashi1988
Ahhh you're right, I don't think this has warranty either. Thanks!
Dang, I was hoping for a better price, but you can get these pretty much anywhere else (at least in the US) for $139. This isn't a bad price, but you're only saving $10 and you'll have to wait 4 months for it?
I've been wanting one of these for a while, and I've heard great things... however, the odd key sizes for right shift and escape are going to limit changing out the caps. I believe the stock keycaps are pretty good though.
kyuss80
agree with you 100% amazon has in stock and it is for good price (comparing to this one) and you get it two days later.
Just received mine (supposed to ship in July). The keyboard is great!
Got a small mishap with shipping though. I almost missed the package. DHL+Canada Post said I refused the package (didn't happen) and it was being sent back to the sender. They didn't even bother leaving a slip for a pick up. Thank god I was tracking my package electronically. I was able to stop them just in time and make them come back.

i'd like to know too.
tenchimato
i can't believe there's nowhere to buy this locally in canada
Just got my shipment notification from the batch that was supposed to ship in July.
Love it! Add some key caps (haven't done) and the typing is just fantastic :-)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MRAIEUN/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 After its arrival i had to do some finishing and polishing.. EOD its worth it.

that mouse pad rug is absolutely amazing
I really wish it came with a USB C connector.

In this day and age it's almost unacceptable.
I've just received my set in Romania on 03.05.2018. Ship date is 16.04.2018. It looks and fells better than I expected. i'm quite impressed. Still, I have a problem. The space bar is not comming back to the same full height. There is still half a milimeter difference and it's driving me crazy. I can use my finger to pull it back up. With the old space bar keycap everything works just fine. I'm using that atm untill I find a solution. There is no noticeable weight difference between the two space bar keycaps.
How much did this drop cost at its lowest? Is it worth it waiting for this drop to relaunch, instead of buying it from mechanicalkeyboards.com for $183 incl shipping ($144 is its original price)?
FlamingElephant
$129.90, and with shipping for me it's a total of $139.49.
Just got the email saying it was shipped, nice surprise since it said like June or July before.
Mockles
That is interesting. Probably they are shipping first come first serve basis? I joined this drop late and haven't heard from them.
