Don't buy these. The surface texture wore out in a matter of months.
What's so different between these and the keys on G910 ORION SPARK or KM780 RGB? I'm don't understand
They need to make a clear, front printed version.
I've got the black translucent front-printed set. You can very easily see the codes imprinted on the inside of the keycaps which is pretty disappointing. Also I've found the shafts to fit pretty loosely on the stems, the spacebar comes loose when I hit too far on either end of it.

I also have the black translucent front-printed set from an earlier drop. Look better without lightning, With light on you won't see the printed characters very well.
They wear off quite a bit after a while (shining effect) and they feel relatively light (it's acryl and not ABS AFAIK).
EXTREMELY disappointed with this keycap set. After installing them on my RGB keyboard, you can see inverted/mirrored letters and numbers that have been printed on the inside of the keys for some reason when the light is shining through the tops of the keycaps. Presumably they are the mold identifiers or some such, but they are simply ugly and irritating.
Anyone know of a better set of translucents that have extra keys to fit a Corsair with the non-standard bottom row?
I saw the blank black and the blank clear. Are there black blanks completely opaque and the blank clears are the black tinted clears? Or is the black blank the tinted clears and the blank clears are merely just white/clear? Thanks

The black clear are black translucent and the blank clears are white translucent. They are not opaque. You can search for pictures on Max Keyboard's site.
Attached are black clears.

I am looking at the pictures on this drop. It sure seems like the top-printed caps have a much thicker wall than the non-printed or front-printed caps. That may be intentional, to get greater translucency on the non-printed and front-printed caps. Or I could be incorrect.
Regardless, can someone from Massdrop or someone who already owns them comment on this? Thanks.
I have a 40% percent keyboard, which has a 1.75u shift key, a 1.25u tab key and some other strange sizes like that. Would this keycap set fit that?

Mine just shipped...thanks Massdrop! :)
how much longer until shipment?
Is this compatible with a K70 RGB from Corsair?

Yes

Thanks.
I don't know what material this is made of, but the ones I had developed a shine fairly easily. No more durable than abs for those who are wondering.

Thanks for the heads up. I like a good shine, so this may work out for me. :)
How many U's is the Space bar?

Their website states: "6.0x, 6.25x, 6.5x spacebar and compatible with 4 different types of spacebar mounting sizes" More Info See: http://www.maxkeyboard.com/max-universal-cherry-mx-black-translucent-full-keycap-set-front-side-print.html

Comes with 3 different sizes I believe.
Installed today the CLEAR (bottom picture), however I prefer the BLACK ones (top picture) from my previous drop purchase. The BLACK has more contrast and the resulting color palette is better, with more colors among them, also too much blur on the CLEAR keycaps.
Edit: After some hours of use with CLEAR keycaps, I can confirm that, BLACK keycaps are nice, and CLEAR keycaps are ugly and useless, because CLEAR at day (with enough ambient light) barely shows keycap color, and at night (darkness ambient) shows too much bright and it gets annoying for the eyes.

Thank you, this is what I wanted to see and know.
These just showed up at my door a few hours ago. They are already adorning my 60% KBP V60 and I'm in love. Few things worth mentioning:
1. The shift key on the right side took some serious massaging before it would sit on the switch correctly. 2. I was, for some reason, given a full set even though I only paid for a 60%. Not a complaint, obviously, but weird. 3. The texture on these things is absolutely wonderful. Juuuust grippy enough to keep you centered while you're flying but not so texture that it makes them look or feel weird. 4. If you've got Gateron Blues, these things look dope as hell. My keyboard looks like the inside of Mr. Freeze's helmet. 5. (THIS IS TOTALLY MY FAULT NOT THE FAULT OF THE KEYS) If you have a board that has layered functionality, get ready to realize which key locations you don't know off the top of your head haha.
Seriously though, all in all, great drop. Beautiful caps for a reasonable price and these things feel and look awesome.
Looking for to using these on my first build. My sis surprised me with my first keyboard and now i'm hooked.
I bought the same brand front printed version of these on amazon about a year ago for my makeshift CM stealth keyboard. I really like them, and front printed keys are my favorite. Somehow I paid about the same amount.
Here is an eBay link from Taiwan offering pretty much the same thing.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/272357772882
** UPDATE 2017-03-27 ** These showed up in Canada in only a week, coming from Taiwan. Their packaging looks identical to what is shown on the eBay page and they are just as dark as what was sold in this drop. As far as material goes, MD mentions it in their blurb but not in the spec section where it is normally listed.

Well... if it means getting a darker set then I'd definitely pay a little more to get what I want.
The ones from eBay look very clear compared to this.
Not worth paying more than double the price. at least for me.
What's the difference between the Blank (Black) and the Blank (Clear)? Is the black not translucent?
MarvinJames
I got a set on Amazon a few months ago but it started to shine after just a couple weeks. No regrets tho, at 30ish dollars I knew what I was getting. It was fun for a while and its also great watching people fumble trying to type on it since I use Colemak.
etatauri
I applaud you for putting un-marked keycaps on your different lay-out keyboard. I bet it's a riot when someone goes to type on it!
If this had an ergodox kit I'd be all over it.
Does the lighting on a G710+ blot out the letters on a top print or should I get a front print to be able to see the letters?

I'm unsure about which set to join since the keyboard has a white backlight on it that might match the print of the keycaps that are also white as seen on the product page, causing it to "blend in" with the backlight. However, if the legends are still visible I'll join the drop for the top print.

If it bothers you, go for the front printed, assuming you have LEDs mounted north and not south. Unless your legends are south then get top printed. Personally I wouldn't be so worried about it since the light is diffused a little but to feel on the safe side, just get the opposite of your LEDs mount position.
These caps look and feel great, however, they do shine after a few months of use. The letters do not come with the caps, I just wrote it on.
Edit: Just got some new keycaps, and comparing it to the translucent keycap, the translucent caps feel a little bit mushy and dims the pitch and noise of the keyboard( therefore you might not wanna get these if you like the clicky clacks of the blues), espeically when it comes to the spacebar, since my board uses cherry stabilizers, which are notorious for having mushy keys. And a small detail: when putting on the translucent keycaps, they have a little click that let's you know it's all the way in, pretty neat, since it doesn't do that in the new caps that I bought.

They wear down, yes. Not too quickly though, but not better than any ABS caps out there. And the shine is not due to the accumulation of grease, it's the cap itself actually wearing down, the neat little texture it came with is now gone after a few months of use.

I was going to say "that's a shame" but that actually may be even better for me. I'm buying the clear version because I want to be able to see my switches through them, if the keycap wears down and gets all shiny it'll be even better for looking at my switches.
Will these work on an ErgoDox?

Why do you say that? They're MX-compatible caps right?
smayonak
mainly the alphas.
Looks like it's back. Does this fit Logitech G710+?

These aren't PBT, they're Polycarbonate (PC).
Woo. Looks pretty. This set was very complete. LOTS of layouts supported. Even my crummy Corsair with the funky sized bottom row
