Title: Keycap Shines
Post by: NimbleTortoise on Mon, 30 December 2019, 21:48:39
I wanted to see people's keycaps that have shined to judge for myself whether I like them or not and willing to buy another GMK set. I've seen some sets already but would like to see more. Feel free to post and share

Same. I want to see some of the wear and tear over time as well.

Now is my time to.. shine?

OG double shot Desko caps after what I would assume is about two hours of usage.  :p

Seriously, how long does it take to get this result?

I bought these second hand so I have no idea what the usage timespan is, but I'd guess a few years at least eight hours a day.

I donít have a photo but my ABS went shiny after a couple of years.

As such I only go for PBT caps now. Much prefer them. Canít understand the fascination with GMK double shots given how poorly they age in everyday use. But each to their own
