I usually buy old stuff not new, and have questions.
« on: Mon, 30 August 2021, 15:56:06 »
I don't know art keycaps, but I know what I like...  I like 'em tall and round.  Sculpted curves.

I have great love for older keyboards, and own several in various states of repair and usability.  But...  I would really like to have a new keyboard that just works well, something to use while tinkering on my older stuff.  I found some keycaps that I really like, but don't know if they are a good deal or not. 

https://www.amazon.com/Drop-Matt3o-Keycap-Ortho-Keyboards/dp/B081DDDK4H/ref=pd_sbs_5/131-5609843-4534556?pd_rd_w=G8wH6&pf_rd_p=0a3ad226-8a77-4898-9a99-63ffeb1aef90&pf_rd_r=HADBM7NSJW81Q6DC0SJD&pd_rd_r=0ce064ac-0e59-44d4-85c7-310cac348b2f&pd_rd_wg=oFVuY&pd_rd_i=B081DD7W11&th=1

I was hoping that someone might have a suggestion on what to buy that is similar to these keycaps, possibly cheaper, better, or both.  I am willing to put up with long shipping times.  I haven't purchased a keyboard yet, so if there is a package deal out there, I would be willing to check it out.

I am pretty set on a full size keyboard with a number pad.

Much thanks!

Welp, I went ahead and ordered a full set.  I did some looking around and didn't find anything else that appealed to me at this price point.  The caps I found that were cheaper seemed of lower quality and not the profile I wanted.  There were other MT3 sets I found, but they were generally sold out or in color ways that didn't appeal to me.

I will update when I get them in a board.  I was thinking something simple like this:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00S5E4KH2/?coliid=I3UTJ8D3O2LYJH&colid=2FSI4UV3MKUEW&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
