how is the keyboard quality?
why no drops on more known brands like Logitech or corsair ?
adartzt321
This is a drop on just the keycaps. It isn't a keyboard.
goofynoofie
oh okay, thanks
have a nice day
Is it me or do those look really low quality?
nogoodnames
Because they are... painted, thin abs, and OEM
giv ISO pl0x
Ewwww painted abs keycaps, just like on mainstream gaming garbage keyboards.
Bring in the Vortex Side-Lit PBT keycaps in black please! https://www.massdrop.com/buy/vortex-side-lit-keycap-set/
FeebleOldMan
YES! Been waiting on the Vortex PBT for a while.
FeebleOldMan
can we have that PLEASE with an ISO option tho? :(
Anyone have an estimate on ship date?
Hello Does this exists with european format ? I use to be in a location where the enter key is tall rather than wide, as well as brackets and { being at different places
6.5u spacebar for Corsair Strafe in this set or no?
psiclone
nope just standard keycaps (so 6.25u space)
Can you get these in UK format?
If only i could get these in a blood red or a white
I can't tell from the photos; Do these have a smooth/oily feel to them, or do they have that nicer (I think) light texture to them? Not sure what that light texture finish is called, but my PBT keycaps have it and I have seen ABS keycaps have it as well.
Some people in the previous drop are saying they're smooth, I'm mostly concerned about them feeling oily because of it. Best example I can think of is the default keycaps that came with my CM Master Keys Pro L have a very "oily" feel to them.
GaleForce
They're somewhere in between. They're smooth but not to the point where it feels oily and slippery, there's some light grainy feel to it.

Thanks for the info!
PBT version would be a dream come true but I don't think that's possible, right?
6.5u spacebar for Corsair Strafe in this set or no?
psiclone
nope 6.25u

Just saved me $. Nope, won't buy that then.
will there ever be pbt keycap version???
Mine came in today. No defects, standard 104-key set with no spares/odd sizes included. I'm on a cheapy E-Element Z-88 and had to substitute my right shift with a "Fn" key - otherwise they all fit great.
These caps are extremely smooth - frankly, I don't know ABS from PBT, but I switched from a set of TaiHao Miamis to these and noticed the texture difference. Not a bad thing, though!
I have top lit keys with pretty weak LEDs and these still show good light through. I've looked for this combination for a while so it's great to not be disappointed. The stars instead of Win or Cmd icons is nice as well.
Thanks Massdrop! I'm glad this one worked out so well.
does this come with a keycap puller?
Trajedir
No keycap pullers in mine, though there's space in the box for a standard "ring"-style puller and wire one.
Don't do it guys. There have been several reports of receiving incorrect key caps and there's no replacements unless you return it and purchase it again in hopes of receiving a complete set.
I purchased these and received duplicate single/double quote key caps instead of a semi/colon cap.
ohaikthxbai
Good to know, thanks.
I'm not a fan of the keycaps that came with the CM Masterkeys Pro so this is the perfect replacement.
Would you recommend buying these? They're pretty cheap on here but I don't know if that's because its a group buy or if the quality is poor.
How will these keycaps look on the k70 RGB LUX edition or will they even be compatible?
user73
I've looked at that set multiple times and I thought it was "just" for the models listed near the end of the title - Corsair K65 K70 Logitech G710. Thanks for re-linking so I actually would check the details and see they offered other sets as well.
smikwily
From what I've read the sides of these are actually painted so it can flake off, and the quality is inconsistent.
So those won't fit on a razer chroma ?
MrCheez
Bottom row won't fit, unless you have the TE Chroma.
How is the build quality? Do the keycaps feel thick and have a nice texture (like slightly grainy instead of shiny/smooth)? Thanks!
Jont828
So they do look a little thicker than most stock caps, but I wouldn't call them thick. And these caps will be shiny and smooth, unless you type with gloves or something. I think the keycaps you're looking for are PBT keycaps.

Would you recommend buying these?
CODE keyboard has its LEDs on the top of each switch but they get super bright (I keep them on the lowest brightness setting unless when the sun directly snipes my desk from the window). Will they shine enough to be visible when the keyboard is set on max brightness?
ExeciN
yeah they work quite well. not as bright as top lit key caps but still very visible.

If some manufacturer makes these in white AND PBT, link it here and I'll give you a virtual high five. Going from PBT back to ABS is killer to me after feeling how amazing PBT is.
Despite owning more aftermarket keycap sets than I own keyboards, I would have bought these on sight had they been PBT instead of ABS. Blank ABS would only accentuate the shine
Are these available in white anywhere?
On an unrelated note, does anyone know what board is shown in the photos in the description?

That's most likely the MechanicalEagle Z-77 (http://a.co/aQbbUsN) The logo isn't visible in any of the photos but the shape of the metal plate around gives it away

Thank you very much!
Got my caps. No errors or missing keys. Build quality is excellent. My board has the leds on the backs of the switches and almost 0 might shines through (I was expecting this but even in a dark room I don't see any light through the legend). Theres very little light leak around the cap Because it's so thick. The look is clean, but a little too shiny and glossy for my tastes. Looks kindof like the cheap I rubber dome boards that ship with most consumer desktops today. The texture is just ok. Definitely not my preference. I ended up keeping my old not cap set caps for my qwerty and just using these for tenkey and mods. These feel extremely smooth and low friction, like a worn in pbt cap would. Not my preference as it doesn't have that "premium" feel.
Got my set a week ago. No defects, but I got 3 Alt keys, and only 1 Ctrl key. Is there a way to get just the key I'm missing?
