TAI-HAO HAUNTED KEYCAP is made with ultra-durable ABS with bright white Doubleshot legends,
It provides a fantastic sound that doesn't add a ton of noise to the keyboard and looks, matching the semi-opaque case quite well. the translucent nature is not smooth but the uneven and random effect has its own charm.
This gray and blue set is a great choice for bilingual users, foreign friends, or anyone looking to brush up on another language, which is available in 13 different selections, it is no wonder that it provides a ''Exotic'' layout: full-size layout is large enough to fit just about any keyboard. Please mind that it's not compatible with 90% of the 65%, 75% or similar, but only with 60%, TKL, or full size, and only the ones with the standard bottom row, so if you own a Razer, Corsair or similar KB, beware since most of the keyboards from these brands uses proprietary row layouts.
It is exclusively made for Massdrop and come out with four new Miami-inspired sets, each with its own distinct personality, they’re sculpted in OEM profile, the keycaps have a rougher texture than my ducky keycaps that I liked, the only problem is when I play a game with those keycaps, they tend to get dirty fairly quickly, to be honest, the light doesn’t shine through the keycaps, it looks beautiful with the subtle colors.
This set of Avatar-inspired keycaps will put your keyboard in a world of its own. Made up of blues, greens, and teals—with slight touches of yellow and pink, the set is made from Doubleshot-injection ABS in cubic profile, Tai-Hao makes ABS keycaps that seem to feel way better than most mediocre PBT, it includes 125 keys (including the 21 bonus caps), which is a solid affordable set.
This double-shot PBT keycap is provided with a considerably thinner layer of scratch-resistant coating. It still kills 99.9 percent of germs, and the keys still have the two-tone design, but the poor contrast on the muted lilac alpha keys with the black on black modifier keys might keep you off this set, if you are into the color scheme, then get the light color version. They are a little rough to the touch and not completely smooth, quirks of their own make them feel unique. it was a great buy for a PBT cheap set.
These Doubleshot shine-through keycaps feature a rubberized finish with a non-slip diamond texture.
The set consists of numerals 1 through 6, four arrow keys, Q, W, E, R, A, S, D, and F in a sharper font. Also included is a key puller.
The surface of the keys is slightly rough, which does help the fingers not to slip off, They're well made and very grippy giving you confidence during a gaming session.
However, this grippy nature does come at a cost as the rubber seems to cling to dirt whilst also making them tricky to clean effectively. It is a Great and simplistic set and is priced very fairly for what you get.
Sculpted in OEM profile, the set is made from Doubleshot PBT plastic, they are fun colors and the double shot construction was well-executed. The feel of these keys is (naturally) different from the feel of Doubleshot abs keys by signature plastics; those are very smooth and hard, these have more texture and almost a softness to the touch. The feel is also different from GMK caps' quasi-pebbly texture. Finally, these are noticeably better quality than stock OEM caps on even nice prebuilt boards.
But the light-colored keys do require periodic cleaning since over time the rough texture will exfoliate your fingers and collect skin gunk.
