Anyone order red keycaps and receiving like orange/brown/yellowish like i did?

montormabur
yes... same here (late to the game, I know, but only openned them recently)
The keys are beautiful! I must've been luckier then the rest of the posters, only 1 cap out of 24 I ordered was noticeable crooked.
P.erhaps
Yeah, I must have been luckier, as well. If I look closely at them, they're definitely not perfectly straight which does definitely speak to some poor quality control unfortunately, but because I'm using them as the P1 P2 P3 P4 keys on a MasterKeys Pro L (so basically a 104 key + 4 profile key layout), they're not really important keys. I had just been looking forever for something to replace the default keys with, since the PBT set I bought as a temporary measure until I got one of the nicer sets I'm waiting on from Massdrop didn't include anything I can use on them.
Here's how they turned out (FYI they're all blue, just did different colors for fun in the picture, and it worked surprisingly well - but they look great all uniform as well, or with one lit up differently to indicate the profile):

I photoshopped this a bunch to clean it up, and took it at an angle where the crooked stems are not obvious.
A whoooole bunch of my caps came with crooked stems, and it's driving me nuts. What happened @MrTym

search
Several of my caps seem to have a stem rotation to them (aren't lined up with other keys). I might go so far as to say that *all* of them might be relatively rotated, but some far more than others. Unfortunate.
tsnieman
I have like 50 of them, and I think 25 of them suffer from crooked stems, but only 10 or so are crooked to the point where it is unacceptable for an artisan cap.
I hope Hidden Lab corrects this for us.
I received my keycaps today and as mentioned below by Ghastone, one of the keys are way off center. Also, R3 keycaps don't fit into the stem making it higher than other keycaps. Who do I have to contact to get it fixed?
I received my keycaps and I have some noticable problems with the {[ key. It is very clearly off center

R1, R2, R2, R3 would've been correct.
Ghastone
noticed this with mine too... about half of them are crooked
Hey Guys! Production has been complete! Thank you for sticking with us! Hope you enjoy these as much as we do! Very excited our end, hence the extreme use of !!

150 users have requested this drop as of 9.12.17, and I can promise I'd buy these if they ever returned. The question is this: Will they?
The original reason some of us didn't buy was a question about key rows that wasn't resolved until about 16 hours before the drop ended. Those of us who inadvertently picked the wrong row asked to be sent a different row but had our orders canceled. That's one of the reasons I'd love to have another chance at these.
Hope you bring this back! Now was not the time but I do want it for sure.
Why did this disappear. I thought it was on for 1 more day
Zed-MD
Limited to 200
Which row would be for the insert key on afull sized keyboard with a number pad?
@MrTym can you confirm escape is row 4? Looking through the comments, it seems there is not a consensus on this, and I want to make sure I ordered the right caps for hhkb arrow cluster.

I wrote to Massdrop's customer service asking specifically to substitute R4 keys for R1s, R3s for R2s, etc. Their only recourse seemed to be to cancel my order completely, which was understandable if mildly infuriating. Hidden Lab's rep seems nice, but I do blame that person for failing to answer questions until the zero hour. Correct color descriptions, numbered key rows designations -- these are things that should have been made clear from the beginning. The information should have been part of the product page.
Varholiaglimp
Agree on all points. I wonder how many people ended up canceling their order vs how many people couldn't and will end up receiving the wrong caps. Really unfortunate.
I'm thinking that for replacing the WASD caps on a SA profile set of caps I should just choose the R4 cap for all WASD keys. I'm just going from the pictures and I really don't want to have these caps sitting WAY below the SA profile caps surrounding the WASD keys that I'm currently using on the mod I want to make. Hmmmmmm. I just don't know what to do. I know these are a first production as well but December 5th? Damn.
Neblin7
Cherry profile and SA profile DO NOT mix... SA is the tallest... Cherry is the shortest... It will not be pleasant.
Amnesia1187
Yeah, I just decided against it. I decided after really giving it the best comparison I could with a ruler and a row 3 SA cap, I just couldn't roll the dice on something I wasn't sure about in two ways. 1) The color for red really looks more orange to me and that was the color way I was hoping to more match with (orange of Carbon SA) and 2) the heights for the two different profiles of caps for both Cherry MX vs Signature Plastics Carbon Row 3 SA profile. As much as I REALLY wanted this to work out I just don't think waiting until December of 2017 for the hopes of a match between those two very varying variables (? lol) are worth it. I'm sure someone else will grab 'em up and let us all know how they compare to all the different cap profiles in existence some time in 2018. Until then,... Happy Collecting!!!

Can I suggest pink to go with my gradient set next time around? :D
BlueCrowned
PINK FOR LASER
Can someone definitively clarify the row naming? I looked at thermochromic caps listed at Hidden Labs website and While most are showing Esc as R4, some are showing Esc as R1.

The official seller also confirmed it. Hopefully you were able to get in the 200 unit limit!
erickong
Thx I had my order in before so I'm good!
This is a great drop, but five keys would have been a much better option, esp. since you offer individual color selection for each key. Your product photographs use this layout, just as many users would: four resin keys for WASD or arrows (possibly blue or green); one key for ESC (possibly, blue, green or the vermilion you categorize as red, if the photos are color-accurate).
Since the product photos show five-key arrangements, and since that arrangement is the most common among users, why not sell five keys as a set?
One of the many examples on your product page:

Do leds shine through any part of the key cap? Or can LED's light up the key cap?
Load 1 more comment
Thanks, is the stem/core lite up by the the key LED?
dman777
You can literally see through the cap... thats what transparent means... If you can see through it, that means light is passing through it which means an LED would also pass through it.
hello. is this really red color...???
search
i think looks like orange color..

There is absolutely a bit of orange hue just like I said before, but it is absolutely a shade of red.
Amnesia1187
well... after receiving them, they're no where near red, but more like brown with an orange tint
Doh, 5 in a set would be better! 4 for arrow keys and one extra for whatever.
@XiKHellooooo. I need Arrow kit. R1 x4 or R4 x4 ?

I think an arrow kit would be R1 x4. This picture was linked earlier in the discussion which explains how Hidden Labs' rows are numbered:

Thx BRO!
I would buy a whole keyboard set for my HHKB, any chance that might happen?
Dang these look awesome!
What's the texture like on these? I'm considering joining, I'm just curious on the firmness. Are they soft and squishy like a gummy bear, or stiff like plastic?
ThyEtherealWolf
They're resin so they'll be stiff like plastic.
I hope none of you support this. This is straight stolen from hot keys project HKP. Looks like they even found the manufacturer who makes them
appleonama
That's not how this stuff works. There's no 'manufacturer'. HKP makes their own artisans, and so does Hidden Labs. They're both very well respected makers of blanks, especially for Topre. They are blanks, how can you say they are 'stolen'?
An exact copycat of Hot Keys Project (HKP) popular design. "... From the brains behind the Dark Lord Helmet, Mutated Ninjas, and Shotgun keycaps comes these detailed two-toned caps. ..." Possibly these 'brains' find the OEM factory of HKP, and are not even shameful to sell the exact design to take over HKP customers.
These brains, please do something more useful than bringing down the price and capturing your market share with other people's idea. Many will be thankful for you bringing cheap price, but please, you these "brains" can do better. Please introduce your new designs, created by your brains.

What is your intent in continuing this? They've already said this is neither the time nor place for such discussions, and I tend to agree. Looking at the two, there are significant differences in the reinforcement particularly. And the drop is over, and because of MD's commenting system, no one in future drops will bring it forth.
ChuckDee
1. I have stopped indeed and the above was the last reply - because I agreed with "... this is neither the time nor place for such discussions..."; 2. I didn't notice the drop is already over, but about the "significant differences" you can also say K3KC's work is "significantly different" from Bro Cap's work, it's all relative you know you have the freedom to provide your judgement of differences and similarities. 3. I don't think MD will care about what was discussed above.
Wanna get one to replace the Kana key on HHKP jp, which row should I pick?
You guys should look into making DSA ones!!!
Would be a lot easier to produce just 1 keycap mold!
These look awesome. Is there any chance for a backspace version (2u R1)?
Also, as others stated too, I'd also love a white version. These colors unfortunately don't fit to my keyset.

Would also be interested in a 1.75u, for the caps lock key that I use as CMD/CTRL
Sounds promising! I'll keep an eye out ;)
Any chance we could get some pics with backlight?

Good call, unfortunately we do not have any of the MX Cherry ones in house - or else I'd totally get some shots of those w/ an RGB keyboard. @MrTym any way you could get some images? o: many thanks!
XiK
Nooooooo lol Maybe next drop :D
Any way you guys could add a HHKB picture with row profiles?
erickong
Thanks!!
