I bought these after eyeing them for weeks on KBDFans but not purchasing due to shipping fees. When I saw that Divinikey was stocking them, they became an immediate purchase, and I put them on my new build. They are fantastic keycaps, and they come with enough to fit a 60% layout variation with arrow keys and 1u Alt, etc on the right side. They have a really great texture, and they are just the right flatness on top to be easy to use on any angled keyboard. In terms of quality, they seem extremely sturdy. Using a keycap puller to take them off hasn’t left any noticeable dents or anything on them, and for PBT they are very uniform. No significant warping that I noticed. One thing to keep in mind is that this kit is more for Mac compatibility, which I didn’t realize before purchasing, so there are no 1U FN keys among a few other things, but there’s enough novelty style keys and the like to easily replace that!
Love these caps, the legends are precise and the quality feels good. Divinikey is a great seller and the shipping was a day faster than what I expected! Will be purchasing from them again!
This set covers just about every layout you can think of. And since the profile is uniform, it doesn't matter what rows you use them in. On top of that, Divinikey service is top notch - quick shipping and great service!
These keycaps are pretty good quality, and a decent value. For a GMK set $70 wouldn’t even buy you a base kit, yet it gets you the entire kit for this set. Don’t let that fool you though, as this set is still excellent quality. While it might not be as amazing as some sets, the PBT is good and the keycaps are pretty thick. They are slightly thinner than something like EnjoyPBT, but keep in mind these are a good $30 cheaper for way more keycaps. They look great and the legends are crisp and clear. However the black isn’t super black, slightly blue actually but it shouldn’t be an issue for your color theme. A few complaints are that the keycaps are a little slippery and the profile isn’t great for gaming but they feel great for regular typing. As for sound they could be a little better with added thickness. They are still plenty thocky, and you will have a hard time finding something better for the price, but they could be even better. All in all these are a great option for your keyboard.
I needed a new keycap set for my board, since the supplied cheap oems are not my cup of tea. These are a smooth grit similar to enjoypbt cherry caps, and they also work with north facing LEDs unlike cherry caps. One thing you'll notice between less gritty pbt is the edges are not as sharp, doesn't feel as bad when your finger inevitably slides along one. They look good, but maybe a bit too busy. The font is not as thick as a result. This profile is different from sculpted, when you first put your fingers on the keyboard you wont notice it but once you start typing it becomes apparent. They are NOT chiclet like, but I can understand the comparisons. There is a subtle dip for your finger to rest. Muscle memory is the biggest problem, since you now have to use even pressure on every key. I type light, so at first I missed a key every so often. It also just feels weird once your typing speed starts ramping up again. I assume that will dissipate with time.
