Dunno if this is a deal deal, but it's nice to see different keyboards get some exposure on here.

So does this keyboard come with all 4 types of switches that can be switched out? Brown, Red, Blue, Black.

unfortunately, this keyboard doesn't have hot-swappable switches. You pick what switch type you want at checkout.

This keyboard does:

This looks like a typewriter, the original mechanical keyboard.

Has anyone used this before? I'm in the market for a new one and have been looking at Corsair, but this could change that.

My understanding is that the actual cherry switches are the gold standard.

Not sure about gateron as being touted as good or better.

In fact, I would stay away from anything non cherry.

I thought that before as well. Gateron switches are imitation cherry's that actually perform better. If you get into switches you'll find that some of the most popular enthusiast switches like zealios are made from Gateron. Switches really are a subjective thing that is different for each person and not all switches are made equal. However, Gaterons are not an inferior product, I'd buy a switch tester and try out a bunch of different switches to see what you like

I have 2 Cherry switch keyboards, but there are other brands that are good.

Cherry are the "standard" but certainly not the "gold standard". They are a good default but there are others that work quite well, if not better, and others that are (subjectively, because that's what we're talking about here) better in every way.

What size keyboard are you looking for (Full-size, Tenkeyless, 60%).

Seeing as how massdrop dates are weeks and even months away, I would recommend getting a keyboard somewhere else if you don't want to wait.

Awesome deal for a quality keyboard but it is unclear how to control the RGB if you get the switch Gateron switches
