Domikey vs. SP
« on: Sun, 26 December 2021, 18:19:38 »
I personally haven't had a chance to feel Domikey. What are people's thoughts of Domikey's quality? It seems they put in a lot effort to make a high quality SA, and it seems to be a bit cheaper than SP SA.

general consensus i've heard is that domikey is inconsistent at best

SP SA is just as high quality as it's always been

Inconsistent with the legends or colors?

The legends on my SP SA sets are not entirely consistent or aligned either.  You might not notice it at first, but once you see it you don't unsee it.

Domikey SA set is great for me, what turns me off from a lot of their sets is colors, very weird color combination here and there. I think another part of the reason why their SA not very popular is that they often want to match with their own more success Cherry profile line. Ex: Semiconductor on cherry is amazing both colors and finishes, but their SA variant is very weird with the low saturation green mods oppose to neon green on the cherry set. But at least they not doing clone like Maxkey...

Other note: I'm just overall sad that there is not a lot of GB and IC for SA keycaps right now... Everywhere I go I see GMK

Having both Domikey SA and SP SA here - SP are higher quality overall, for the keycaps themselves (better colors, better legend consistency, slightly heavier keycaps with slightly better construction).
SP packaging though is lacking (caps are thrown in plastic bags) whereas Domikey have really neat trays that keep each keycap in place properly, and a very nice box around these trays.
Overall Domikey SA is still good. SP are the best so far IMHO.
