Does the 2U keycap have 2 stems or just the one?
Sorry, but I have to ask. What is the purpose of a blank keyboard? I am new to the custom keyboard scene so I am a bit of a noob when it comes to these things.

If you touch type, then having legends is not necessary. One of the struggle in the keyboard community is finding compatible keycaps for your unusual layout. Ortholinear aren't as hard to find as some other layouts, but it still can be a challenge due to modifier keysize and row position. Having blank keycaps means you don't have to worry about any of this. Another reason is that some people just prefer the looks of blank keycaps.
How many homing keys? No mention = none included?

I do like this drop, but you'd wait a little less time and pay a little less (for more customization) by putting together your own set on Aliexpress where you can pick from a wide range of colors for each key! For DSA at least, XDA sets ship to next to no variety which is for sure the strength of this drop. Here's an example of just how customizable sets can be on Aliexpress, (and I chose a conservative palette when I was thinking up what to order) (all for $17) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1BiLqsDFSsKOmo5o-K3nToHMy53FwEzqHJQZzf4g8IBo/edit?usp=sharing If you're not in a rush and these color schemes are more or less what you want (especially if you want XDA with cool accents) I do think this is a neat drop, just letting people know of what's out there if they want to push the variety in a DSA set, for the same price. For XDA this is a no-brainer though.

Thanks for sharing :) do you know if that (or anything similar) have options for homing bump?
Stratas
That's a good point - I feel like I've only seen that from Signature Plastics, not AliExpress sellers.
Sorry I have never herd of XDA, how does it compare to DSA?

Good question! The top is flatter, and has a larger surface area, so there are smaller gaps between keys. Personally: I love how it looks, but find the profile too flat, and prefer more definition between cap edges. As always with switches/caps, your mileage may vary!
Zynski
It feels a lot flatter in comparison to DSA. After a while I think I prefer XDA over DSA because of the larger surface area. They have a more "blocky" look which I also like.
I am quite new to mechanical keyboards. These keycaps seem to be compatible with Cherry MX switches. Am I right? Do they work with other switches too?
(Edited)

Yes these are compatible with cherry mx, gateron, kailh, zeal and other mx style switches.
To clarify (based on the drop down selection) there are 4 possible combos? XDA red or blue and DSA red or blue? OR is it XDA blue and DSA red like the pictures show?

It is pretty clear from the order form that you can select one of four possibilities. Would be nice however to have clearly labelled pictures illustrating the difference between the two profiles. Also it would be helpful to state explicitly that these fit Cherry style switches!

I don't think that there would be any doubt that these are for Cherry style switches and not Topre or ALPS? Their stem shape is obvious from the photos on the overview page that show the caps upturned. I mean maybe it wouldn't do any harm to mention that as well, but caps for non Cherry switches are almost always the exception not the standard anyway?
