Does anyone know if these will work on a pok3r?
Arbane
This will work on any mechanical keyboard that uses a cherry MX stem. So basically anything in the last ten years that isn't topre.

If anyone is in Orange County, California, I have a grey/white set of these for $22.
I would pay double for orange modifiers. Apparently I am the only person on the planet that prefers orange to the primaries+pink color sets, so it is impossible to find orange outside of the horribly thin chinese doubleshot "advertised as PBT" sets.
if anyone has 3 of the white novelty keys (with the faces) that they’d sell for cheap i’d be very happy to buy 3!
I bought a grey and black variant of this set with MantisTek branding new on Ebay for $1 less than the Massdrop price and free shipping. Like others have said though, the backlighting under them is very uneven and inconsistent. My "B" key almost looks like a "3" key for example.

Aw damn. I ordered the exact same one and it's arriving soon. I'm hoping they aren't as bad as you've described, but we'll see...
what keyboard is that?!

somebody else said it was the vortex vibe, which seems about right. sentrak tk78 is the PCB board or something?

Massdrop seems to have run it in the past as a kit. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/sentraq-tk78-mechanical-keyboard-kit
I have a vibe , and had never seen this thing before. To me this looks a lot better than vibe - on paper - . Tmk firmware, led support, multiple layout support ... I however love my vibe though, solid ss plate, and amazing stabs.
Anyone have any thoughts on this from the last time it dropped? Price versus other vendors? I've been trying to find the off-white/white combo they have in the pictures, but haven't been able to spot a similar one anywhere else.
anyone kowns the keyboard in the pictures of this drop?

thx u
Yeah, I just bought this keyboard, it's really a nice one.
I ordered mine off aliexpress, just came in today. The bad quality doesn't do them justice, they are very nice. Unfortunately had to use the oem keycaps for fn/menu because of a non-standard bottom row.

Will these work with the Topre Realforce RGB?
Load 3 more comments
There aren't many options if you want the backlit legends. The old Vortex PBT backlit set is nice and thick, but fundamentally flawed in that any key with more than one character on the legend will only be half-lit, and the new Vortex set which has replaced them is practically identical in quality to this set. Considering this set is cheaper and comes in more colour options, I'd go for it.
I have both a new Vortex set and a Ducky PBT / POM set and also own the Realforce RGB. Of the two keycap sets the Ducky set is better quality. The vortex set I had trouble with the homing F & J keys being way too loose. The Ducky key caps all fit snugly. Also I like the font on the Ducky set better, although your taste my vary.
Is this available in a nordic or Swedish layout?
Will these fit on the Corsair Strafe RGB?
BlueMagic
Same as the K95 inquiry below, the bottom row will not fit.
There are at least 5 rebrands of these sets out there, if you're looking on Ebay or Aliexpress keep an eye out for the ones with the extra 4 smiley caps. Out of all the Chinese backlit PBT sets (aside from gen 2 Vortex, which I haven't tried yet) these are the best. They're thicker than the others, though slightly less thick than my gen 1 Vortex or Papyrus Deck sets. The texture is virtually identical to either of those, perhaps very slightly smoother. The font is fairly simple, not too "G4m3r" and not unorthodox like my Papyrus Deck. The thickness of some of the lettering is a little inconsistent though. The double-shooting on the backlit legend is fairly even, much better than the gen 1 Vortex and slightly better than the Papyrus Deck, with no split characters. I only have a black set which has little to no backlight bleed, can't comment on the white or coloured sets. All in all, whilst I prefer my Papyrus Deck set for its thickness, and more opaque double shot legends which make them more legible without a backlight, these would be my second choice, and for those who can't stomach the Papyrus font this is probably the best set available (with the potential exception of the gen 2 Vortex)
Hi, i have a k95 platinum, does this keycat set fit it?
Prohero113
No, the bottom row will not fit.
do these work well with ducky shine 6?
dreadsmokey
Not sure about the 6, but I have a set on my Shine 3 and it's fine.
dreadsmokey
Ducky always use standard spacing so yes it will fit. :)
Anyone have the Vortex set and these and can share a comparison of how they feel to type on?
TelFiRE
They "feel" very similar to type on. But the legends on this set aren't very consistent (e.g.; U is thinner than I which is thinner than Y). It's not too obvious when they're lit, but it drives me mad sometimes when they're not. My Vortex set is in my everyday keyboard.

Thanks for the info!
I bought these off eBay just three weeks ago in both white and black saving me CAD$20 over what I would have paid here.
Both my feedbacks are on his account [i have 782 +ves as of today] and he is still selling it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/108-Backlit-Thick-PBT-Keycaps-Cherry-MX-switch-FOR-Mechanical-Gaming-keyboard-/172611728503
Showed up in just over a week to Canada both times and came in its own box with foam cutouts for each key and there were two layers of foam with keys so it. One came with a metal keycap puller as well as a plastic one and the other a plastic one like the kind pictured here.

care to post some pics? Are they knockoffs?
Even at the lowest price here, from eBay to the US, eBay is almost $5 cheaper. It is only cheaper from here if you order 4 or more sets.
Is that keyboard a render or is it real?
Haaaaaandrew
thank you
Are these Captor sets? Vortex sets? Who are these?
Randomness
Captor is one of the rebrands, not sure if you'll get these in a "Captor" box, but they're the same caps.
I wish that they came with an international option. Also, when it is only american layout, I wish that it would be clearly stated in the drop.
I see that there are some options in the drop down when joining the drop, namely All Black. Could we get some pictures of the all black set? I don't see the black keys on any of the examples. Thanks in advance!

Is the space bar on backward? Or is there a reason for the slope?
CodeMonkeyX
Yes it's tilted backwards.
I wish these keysets were available for RGB boards with non-standard bottom rows (Corsair, Razer, et al).

Thanks for the link. I put in a request for them so I'll get notified if/when it comes back. I don't mind the stock keycaps on my Corsair Strafe, but having the option to upgrade to PBT would be great.
saturnotaku
Glad to help, mine should be in my hands in about a week from now, the date was end of the day Thursday, May 4th.
I'll be posting pictures and what I can of a review (It won't be professional). I'll basically post everything I personally wished was available information both picture wise and use case/situation wise.
I'm still waiting for the backlit keycap set that skips the weird spacebar cut-out. No one has trouble reading or locating the spacebar.
Will these fit a G.Skill Ripjaws KM570 RGB ? Not sure how to check the compatibility.
jotry
yeap. if your keyboard has this layout, http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/ with ansi 104/108keys
JamesLee
Thank you very much. I believe that this is indeed the same layout. My head swirls from the different terminologies at times, but I know it'll get easier with more time!
Really pleased with my set too, the layout sort better than on old pictures i saw of it, even the caplock and b problem i heard of seems non existent, and as i said, the white seems the most on point. the quality of plastic is way better than on the oem pok3r rgb...

Arrived. The keys are better than expected. I have white diffused 3mm LEDs installed on Gateron Blacks w/ clear tops (GH60 satan build), the keys look best on the lowest setting of brightness. Light tends to bleed through the keycaps a little too much at higher brightness levels.
Very happy, but I like the font on the Vortex equivalent better.

Looks like I'll have mine tomorrow
Received a tacking number, fedex expected delivery next thursday.
Still awaiting for a ETA on the shipping date and with people saying these are mediocre I hoping they aren't that bad. But, they have to be better than my original Ducky shine keys which are starting to wear on the Legends where the back lighting shines through.

The estimated ship date was listed on the page when you bought it

Sorry time feels like it is going slowly lately.
Bought the same keycap set from Aliexpress. Took one and a half month to get to me, so Aliexpress gave me a full refund since they didn't arrive on time. These keycaps are pretty mediocre, but for the price I guess you can't complain. The top of the keycaps are too thin, they let light shine through what is suppose to be the opaque area, giving the keys this undesirable glow. The modifier keys can't really be read when your keyboard backlights are turned off. Also, they're not quite as blue as shown in the pictures; they're a bit darker and a bit more teal. I've put them on my Magicforce 68 with Cherry blue and they certainly do change the typing experience. I can't really describe it, but the keys feel "lighter", not exactly in a good way. I've posted some pictures so that you can see how they look before buying.

Just got mine in and the blue color looks a bit different from the one in your picture, it's more like the submit button below. The backlight bleed is definitely the same with the caps lock button but I won't be using these in an environment that's dark enough or the backlighting bright enough for me to care. Can't really complain
techwiz
The whitebalance in the photos I took that day wasn't so good, they're more like the submit button like you've said. And yeah, you can't really complain since it's pretty cheap.
