EC9009 from kbdfans color compatible with Realforce stock?
« on: Wed, 24 April 2019, 13:52:16 »
I plan to replace the windows keys on my white Realforce 87U with the ones from here. Does anyone have a comparison photo for the modifier keys (9009 vs stock)? Are they close enough?

Uhhh I left Type Heaven with EC9009 at work so I can't do a direct comparison (Realforce at home).  However off my memory I think Realforce is more neutral tone (grey) while EC9009 is more beige ish tone.

Also EC9009 has a rougher texture while Realforce has a smoother texture.  Typing feel is also different.

To be honest I'd probably not mix and match.

If I happen to bring it home I'll take a side by side pic at a later point.  :P

Ha, I also use a Type Heaven at work!

And thanks for the info. Iíll probably just use some generic colored blank keycaps then.
