PBT > than GMK
I've built a handful of keyboards using both GMK and PBT. I must admit, I'm a "PBTfan." I am also a big fan of the simplicity of these key caps and their quality. Reason being is that PBT tends to wear slower and not get glossy or smooth as fast as GMK or ABS. I recommend these keycaps and am planning to get another set of PBT. Make sure it is PBT and not ABS and it won't disappoint. Only downside would probably be that the purple in the modifiers are hard to read, but I honestly love that about them and keep focus on the alphas. Thanks for the great service Divinkeys!
I just received this set of keycaps. First off, they DO NOT look or feel like they do in the pictures. I have a couple other sets of PBT keycaps. This set looks and feels more like ABS. I wouldn’t even say that these are in fact PBT. But, I don’t know much about plastics. All I can go off of is aesthetics and how they feel. This set looks nice. I would not buy this set again. Pretty disappointed. All of the keycaps in one of the trays were all mixed up and tossed around. Few scratches on keycaps. I guess it’s good to know that computer renders are much different than in person experience. I don’t think any of this reflects upon Divinikey. This review is more so for the product made by KBDfans. Again, I don’t think I’ll purchase a set of PBTfans keycaps.

Damaged Purple Spacebar
I really like the set overall, but one of the stabilizer mounting points on my purple spacebar came cracked. As a result, my spacebar does not sit properly on my spacebar stabs. Would like to see a better QA process, as I feel I wasted $18+ shipping on the spacebar kit.
Hi Keith, thank you for your feedback. It looks like you purchased the base kit outside of our store and bought the spacebar kit here as a replacement. In the future, if you have any issues with any product purchased through us, please contact us and our customer team will be understanding and happy to help!
Great keycaps with 1 caveat
Complete set at a great price that look, feel, and sound awesome. Legends on the alphas are crisp, even, and look great The one caveat is with the mod key legends. There is hardly any contrast with the black and purple so unless you are in a very well lit office or have a light directly over your desk, the mod keys look blank. Not that big a deal for me but may bug some folks.
