Late to the granite party
« on: Sun, 19 February 2017, 12:37:57 »
Well I'm late to the party, but they sure look nice.  Finally got around to putting my granite set on a board instead of sitting in the bag they arrived in.  It's interesting to me how different they look with simple changes to the accents.  Even though blue is my favorite color, I Finally settled on this setup that seemed to look best to me. 

I also think granite alphas with purple mods would look pretty BA.  Maybe with 1 or 2 yellow accents??  I'm ordering some now so we will see.  Just wish SP offered icon mods in different colors :(

Clean and nice look. Keep us posted on the yellow/purple experiment.

Granite looks much better with all the keycaps pointing in the same direction :))

In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

soon, I will get a set of granite.
But not before I get my PCB, I must confirm the layout. :)

and, definitely icon mods :D

Well then.  Maybe my keyboard escapes differently. Maybe mine escapes to a universe of magical ponies.  You never know...

Do you remember the original Granite GB, where the molds were imperfectly formed and every keycap was aligned differently?

I never did end up getting mind rectified.

Yours looks fine btw :)

Oh yeah, I have some other random DSA caps that have all kinds of issues.  I just come to expect it with SP, but these were actually the best looking caps I've ever had from them.

I thought you were talking about my escape key pointing the wrong way. But I think my way makes more sense :)
