Got these keycaps today, replacing them was a little bit of a hassle but when I re-plugged it in the lights were absolutely beautiful. The difference between my standard K95 Platinum keycaps and the vortex ones was incredibly noticeable, no doubt these are some good quality keycaps. I thought they didn't include a windows key designed for my bottom row, but two of the keycaps were diamond shaped in the second box and fit perfectly so I assumed those are it. Anyways, good purchase; great keycaps.
Is this the exact same keycap set? Or am I going crazy?
126 vs 108 keycaps set... not same offer at least...
Is this key cap set compatible with the K70?
Everything except the bottom row (ctrl, alt, win, etc.) will fit. Corsair boards generally don't work with most keycap sets because they use a nonstandard bottom row.
Are these available with front printed legends elsewhere?
Would these be flush on a Colemak setup?
HIDEOUS 'stencil' font! No way.
I spent weeks looking at backlit keycaps, and as far as double-shot PBT goes, there is only one decent (not great) choice:
I bought those, and while the "shine through" isn't flawless, at least the font can be looked at without retina damage.
because of how molding works, you'll have to go for either "stencil", or dark spots where the stencil part would have been.
(you can see the effect on the low profile planck drop)
Unless some lighttools wizards simulates a design that miraculously shines through evenly.
I personally prefer this for the time being. Though I do want them front facing on black pbt..
Agreed! Cant stand that stencil font. I have the K-Type which uses Tai-Hao PBT backlit keys (NOT stencil). I'm looking for a similar key for a separate numpad. I found these on Tai-Hao's website, which may be the K-Type keys, but can't seen to find them at any other store besides the Tai-Hao store.
Are these the same keycaps as the front printed ones? Just different location for the legends?
Yeah essentially
$25/30 on amazon free shipping.
Even cheaper but maybe still good enough for most:

<$20 / free 2-day prime. I had a hard time justifying $30 caps for my $23 refurb velocifire TKL, but I will do the $19 or so for some decent blue caps. thx.
Does anybody know what keyboards are those?
Wow, nice to see they include a 2u shift key for the GK64 blokes out there. Or is it a Tada compatible one? Can't even tell anymore.
Now we just need an ISO and international kit...
Sorry, ISO is there, we just need the international kit...
I already had a few different sets of keycaps from vortex and while I did not expect much in terms of quality, these are the worst keycaps they have ever manufactured. The right short shift arrived damaged and while they kind of have the feel of PBT, they are very cheap keycaps. I would consider them worse than the white keycaps they used to sell with the old white pokers/pure/race that were just spray painted.
