    Received them today, thanks ripitup/longweight. On initial impressions I absolutely love the blue, more satisfying than browns IMO. I may just have to get a board with them.

    Not a massive fan of the red/black though, don't like the lack of tactile feedback.

    p.s. Send me the address of the next recipient and I'll get these passed along tomorrow or Thursday.

    p.p.s. Sent out on Tuesday morning to Big Elf. Will either already be there or be there soon I would imagine. :D

    Just arrived. I prefer the Red, very closely followed by the Black. Brown and Blue feel too stiff for me plus the click of the Blue would drive me mad.

    I'll be posting them on tomorrow when I know the next recipient.

    I should add that I wasn't putting my name in the hat, I was just wondering why the last post was over 5 months ago - I'd have expected things to have happened since.

    My request for them was a page or two back, but I never got any notification. They're lost in space :lol:

    Can I add my name to the list please? Will check back periodically to see how things are going as it sounds like the keys have dropped in to the ether at the moment!

    No trouble. I thought this thread was a great idea when it first appeared, and if it introduces people to some new switches/keycap types they haven't experienced before then it's doing a sterling job for the community.

    :)

    I'm glad to see the keys are back in circulation, looking forwards to creeping up the list! Thanks Longweight for curating.
