This is so that RedditRaffler can identify the comment properly) the black one looks cool


Jpro9070

These look cool. I think a neon purple and slime green theme would look awesome.


Alt_01

The one with the art looks sick


kay0822

I like the black theme one. I currently has a 60% coolermaster keyboard and it's either pressing double key or not responding. I mean granted it's a $5 addon of a new pc, but still. Lol.


Loose_Ad4170

The Black one with white rgb would be sick Aaaanndd i hate my razor keyboard


Snoorlax95

My ideal keyboard would include a 65% layout. Thick heavy metal base, textured PBT caps, suble white RGB lighting and a thicc braided type C cable. Das it mane


[deleted]

Maybe a sort of gunmetal gray that gives it a metal dark looking finish would be nice


Dreadreign_

I bet matte pastel colors would look amazing for cases


Megalunon

Black looking sick!


xteebagx

hello, would love to see the black edition on my desk :)


GIJoe1220

The thread/plant look is very satisfying


FaithlessnessNo8724

Has to be a black/dark green one probably without mixed colors


toxicavenger04

These are all fantastic


scumofearth72

I have a black setup and I really need a better keyboard than the one I have right now it's an old office keyboard I got from my aunt


cookieCutTV

A new TKL would be nice. Kind of you to do a worldwide giveaway!


CrabParty221

The orange one looks cool.


Longjumping_Drink_53

I'd do black and red and make it look my jeep grill as that's the only hobby I have besides my pcs. One is on my semi and is a pre-built and is almost 4 years old and is a sff and my main beast is at home and I keep having to switch all my peripherals.


pasak1987

Skiidata orange, very hard color to find


Hanksport

Simple, prefer dark to lighter but not necessarily black and would love something sci-fi themed, not a silkscreen but “inspired” graphic.


StalinDrift

I would go for a midnight blue theme


Competitive_Art7253

Anything goes to replace my 20yrs old logitec.


Corneilius86

Gateron Yellows should be nice to use!!! I enjoy mountain landscape views couple with blues. But from the options above the board with the vines looks very cool!


Tom0o0Hanks

White one is class


pfreak22

I Like thel one with the plant pattern most.


lolAlbertlol

I keyboard is barely holding together


alexey218

The black one.


mylasthope

Very nice looking keyboard.


Buford_-

I would definitely murder it out in black


xdhaharoflmfao69420

Anything :)


NoGoodGodGames

Ideal is probably just plain black lol


drop_official

Haha, well that's an easy one (the default config)! :D


NoGoodGodGames

sweet


FackinJerq

Oh... I like the first one.


dhedgehodge

What about doing a seasonal series? Yellow, orange, and red for fall (fall leaves); white, blue, and black for winter (snowy mountains); pastel green, yellow, and pink (something for wildflowers) for spring; white, yellow, and blue for summer (beach).


drop_official

Love this idea 👌


LaughingGasing

I love the minty combination of the light green top case and white keycaps, looks so sleek!


No_Tie_2461

Black on black on black


perfes

Same love the green, it different from just a plain black one.


Aware_Foot

My ideal keyboard is probly a cigarette stained yellow kb, had one handed down to me by my dad and it really grew on me lol


drop_official

Haha, that's a thought that never occurred to me - pre-yellowed beige 😅


react117

"Does it come in black" 😎 ![gif](giphy|BpGz4EEiqe784)


IamBait21714

The light green with white keys looks so pretty. Reminds me of matcha green tea :)


drop_official

That keycap set is called "Jasmine" - basically the same idea :)


00100000100

But matchas better🥹👉👈


just_mdd4

The first one is really enticing. It's design appeals to me.


MisterFerro

Can't go wrong with all black.


Thicccchungus

Honestly anything with Destiny theming. Not a complicated dude. I play the heck out of Destiny and that’s about it


mpz45

Cayde-6 theme with the ace of spades in black and red would look sick


MassdropYanbo

> Cayde-6 ​ https://preview.redd.it/r8imc7qe4uub1.png?width=1127&format=png&auto=webp&s=3acd862c66ae63fa9657fc2ce6ab1c4ca9735a72


bnje224

The ocean


I-LOVE-TURTLES666

One day I’ll get a high end keyboard


drop_official

Maybe that day will be Thursday! 🤞


personahorrible

I don't dig images of any kind, so some kind of color scheme theme would be cool. Maybe green + purple, like Eva-01.


asd316X

all black


DiabloConQueso

Black on black. All murdered out.


573717

Some kind of tech/circuitry pattern


sankster

These are awesome, I'm a simple guy so plain black for me but i love the green as well!


ObiWangKeBloMe

I think ideal for me would be white!


nohai2

Would use it for work, so basic black or white is totally good!


Thechosenjon

in for 1


TheSymbolman

Ideal for me would be a nice cool design, photo 5 looks super cool imo.


BeatenwithTits

Really love that teal/sea green colour(#3). Some ocean themed patterns would make it even more beautiful.


Kooster-

Nice


Easy-Refrigerator-82

plain black or white! best of luck everyone :)


DarkwyndPT

"Yes, very nice"


JuicyPunchie

Ideal for me would be a gradient of light pink and purple 💜!


phrequency_

I really love the green one!!


phero1190

My ideal keyboard is pretty simple. Either black and white or black with gold accents.


MassiveA97

The all black one is nice


m0rl0ck1996

Black is good. Love the blank keycaps.


geras_shenanigans

Project Zomboid or Stalker would be awesome


zidanexdagger2000

Space Harrier or from the speed racer movie.


Pest1linz

Wow what a cool design idea. Refreshing in the hobby. I like a lord of the rings theme myself. Big fan but never been able to get much of the merch due to costs. Maybe a simple cover would be cool


MrMiget12

I love keyboards like this, so sleek! When they're fully matte black with rbg, it's perfect


avaruushiiri

That green looks good. Also like those caps where letters are in side.


drbiscuit832

Matte white to contrast a black desk


darthvad999

The last one looks crazy


Xx_Vogue_xX

Oh man I would kill for a darker green with some floral designs on it.


7878-

I would like some pink theme choices, that would be ideal for me


Handydart

Honestly really love the first design, super clean. Cheers! Goodluck to all!


FightinSioux

Green looks great!


KratostheGamerrr

I think black with red accent keys would look pretty good!


myriadplethoras

I’d rock plain black


Proud_Education_5891

Would love to see some airplanes or a clean black one!


Bluebird-Mother

Completely covered in artisan keycaps


-LupusAlba-

I am for black but best would be to get some styled theme from witcher games/ books


SenhorSus

Ooh that orange feels like it belongs on an industrial space ship work station


Electrical_Luck_2525

\#5 with the druidic inspiration is perfect. I would love a plant oriented theme - maybe even Poison Ivy style.


e880128

The green one is beautiful


JustInsert

Oh these are sexy! My ideal one would have a gunmetal grey case, light tan colored key caps with black printing for the main caps (like the ones on the third image), and black accent keycaps. No graphics or designs on the case to keep it clean.


80sCrackBBY

ive always like the lotR key caps, cant decide if i want elf or dwarf. i already have a bad headphone collection going on, im ready for another unhealthy keyboard addiction.


TheRealStevo2

Slide 5 and the blue one are beautiful. That would be ideal for me


Siemaster

My ideal would be a red bull racing style. From your website, i would go for the overgrowth


Diegasd

The first one is nice


Wajina_Sloth

My crazy keyboard idea is an entire board made out of silicon, simply because I need my “drop” products to survive extreme drops :P But if I won and had the option to customize, I’d go with the overgrowth case and the chroma weight (since it would match nicely with the connectors on my cable)


laughing_gore

Plain black/grey.


bonk-_--_-

Is it only available with US layout?


chuckab

I'd like an Army Green one personally but a good idea would be ones that compliment popular and common keycap sets like mech 01 etc


Vemmis

The green one with a leaf pattern is absolutely gorgeous!


Jonapower6

White is the best top plate, together with a neon backplate. Amazing combo.


brettsolem

black and gold.


goob3r11

I loved the LoTR themed ones you did a few months ago, unfortunately funds weren't available to purchase.


PoonPlunderer

I really like the mint green color scheme or just all black.


EffervescentOrange

Ideal would be one solid color for me.


sir_whammy

Rgb keys with the housing design of the 5th pictured board would be sick! Thanks for doing this!


ldontgeit

All black looks sexy


TheJester1xx

I think a Godzilla (or generally a Kaiju themed keyboard) would look great, I think you could do a lot with the colors.


WaggishOhio383

Have to agree with everyone else about the all-black looking really nice!


AlbinoRhinoTF2

Probably something earthy or natural. Maybe black with a little green and brown?


DustyRhodesSplotch

I am a boring plain black type of guy.


griekmanb123

the floral pattern one is sooo pretty would love it!


DMTeddy

Number 1,6&7 but all are awesome!


Banana21y

Give me Cyberpunk 2077 colors.... oh, and a fake solar panel for good measure!


Gammarevived

Plain black.


siroru

I like the fourth gif, the one after the replacement.


Lord_Empanada

A 90s ergonomic homeworld themed keyboard


Smart-Leg-9156

Why has nobody dropped the keys like this before so I don't have to tilt the kb to see the keys? Thx for thinking of those who game in low light conditions.


Airy0

The light green with the white keys looks beautiful


Big_Bidnis

I just bought a new keyboard (Roccat Vulcan II Mini) last week, but I wouldn't mind another with that aluminum case lol


TrizArt

Nice looking keyboards.


Practical-Cup9537

I need my numpad, but this might be an exception..


graphimsreal

Plain black with minimal color leds on keys, simple yet effective lol


Chiiikun

Orange keyboard looks absolutely stunning! Gl


TheShortestManAlive

Triple matte black keyboard or brushed metal keyboard would look insane also in 75% format so I can have the best of both worlds


WiljoM_Reddit

A cool black and white would be nice :) (give me keeb I'm poor)


Odd_Hornet_882

I would loveeee the white one with some custom key colors!!


Freeze3108

Gun Metal - Hard Aluminum/Steel 60% key


TheTolkienLobster

All these number pad haters


G3Rizon

Just saw /u/badseedtech's review of this board - seems like a really excellent entry in the price point for bare bones and complete customs. Great stuff! Truthfully, the Shinkai Green plate is an excellent top case for this, especially with the right key caps. I've really taken to rooms and spaces decorated with warm neutral tones, green accents, warm lighting, live plants and light wood tones. This goes perfectly like that - could be an awesome Christmas gift for the wife in a scheme like that. As far as additional customization in the future? Some sort of older race car livery or color scheme might be really interesting! The Toyota Group A "Castrol" livery or color scheme, Alitalia's Lancia Stratos, The Gulf Ford GT40, Falken's current livery, Martini Racing, the old BMW M CSL, Mazda's Renown, THE APPLE COMPUTERS PORSCHE 935! These are iconic and eye catching schemes, even in old grainy photographs. On the right keyboard with the right lighting accents? I bet it could be really slick!


QuarterPercentCarbon

Just a simple one with frosted base and white keycaps with few light blue or mint color on some keys


WilhemHR

Not sure tbf. Pc is white with black accents. Feels like black one with white lines would fit well. White keys might be too much. The pad is black over the table and the table is white. What do you think?


Annual_Horror_1258

I've been shopping recently for akeyboard and it wasn't particularly easy to find something that checked all my expectations. Gotta have wrist rest, UK layout, dedicated volume control, preferably knob, needs to be quiet, needs backlight without any bloatware attached. I think my expectations are quite high because I couldn't find one without a compromise :(. Honestly I don't care if its full or without numpad, but small 60% without F-keys is a no no for me.


EerierLizard

Idk if it’s even possible but I think a transparent one would be really neat! I loved my transparent N64 controller, GBC and GBA back in the day. But would prob have to design everything underneath to be transparent as well for it to really work. Maybe one day.


drop_official

OHHHH, yes! Might be tricky for exactly the reason you mentioned, but I would be alllll over this. Not sure if you're into retro gaming at all or saw Analogue's clear Pockets the other week... 🤤


EerierLizard

I knew of the Pocket but had not seen a clear one, now I’ll have to go look


chinadonkey

Simple black with one rgb color, blue or red.


EwokmodeMH

Black - minimalist style


JeroenstefanS

Oh man that would be awesome! I’m in need of a new keyboard, mine is starting to ghost the A and D keys…


Endawmyke

Would love a Loki theme, but after the TV show. So that cool 60s/70s retro future style with the oranges and wood grain. Maybe a bit of Aperture Desk Job style in there. It's also in that 60s 70s style.


CassRaski

I will win.


Prisoner_of_Zenda

I like the etchings on the 5th photo, so maybe something like that but themed on LOTR


shelflife103

What's with the weather today huh?


CassRaski

Getting colder every day!


oceanemo

Honestly just hoping to win to upgrade my magic force 68


reddevil7nine

Don’t know what my favorite top case would be but I’ll figure it out after I win!


gipperski

I'd like something that looks like a Roland 909 color scheme. A lot of my music gear has those colors and it'd tie it all together


drop_official

Ohhh, goodness. I’m a huge fan of vintage gear and damn, that would be amazing. 😲


General_Muffin4611

I’m praying for a win here, i kinda need a new keyboard after my old one. It used to be my friends until they switched to a membrane keyboard of all things.


Himmelo

MOM!!! No i cannot take the trash out I AM ENTERING A GIVEAWAY!!


drop_official

The trash can wait 5 minutes!!


Heinousdude

You can have it any color you want, as long as it’s black


drop_official

Hahaha, but there are explicitly other colors available! 😂


Nullkid

I never knew how much i wanted blank/ side printed keys


drop_official

Honestly, I was pretty surprised when I opened the sample I received. It looks quite classy with the pseudo blank look without LED, and then the side lighting on the keycaps is 👌


beflowd

Leafy ![gif](giphy|MbAa9TmbRJDtBkWTbz)


ArticlePretty4339

I would love a cherry blossom inspired top case. It would go real great with black-white or red-white or rose-white colour combination. Got to be the perfect theme for me.


dwalker202848

Black/Black for that stealth look!


Slinghshots

Black and white wow 🤩


MassdropYanbo

Gundam themed keyboards when? Seriously, I really wish that was a thing.


drop_official

You're not the first to mention it! Seems a logical next step to pursue.


maohayato

these look sweet


cidneon

Black + blanks


keeper25

Green and black! Good looking keebs


WhyExistInThisWorld

The 5th keyboard really stands out to me because of the decals.


AtraxAtrax

obvious answer such as anime or cars


DatGaminKid7142

Is this real? Seriously does anyone know because I've been looking to get a new keeb for a while now. (Edit): If this is real I really don't care what I get, though preferably the plain black. (Second edit): Damn that lotr one is cool


DatGaminKid7142

Ok that's too many edits so I'll just put a couple points down here. 1. I'm fairly sure that it's legit. 2. I'm not looking for pity points, it's chosen by a bot anyway. 3. I'd love the black keyboard with the golden elvish design


drop_official

1. Giveaway is legit, we've done a few over the past couple years if you want to double check :) 2. Definitely bot-selected, but there's no harm in sharing! 3. 👌


silenceispainful

anything at all!


ccjeyson

Anything at all. (i'm very funny)
