YMDK and npkc any good?
« on: Wed, 12 June 2019, 06:54:00 »
Just found some interesting PBT OEM profile keycap sets on amazon (don't know whether I'm allowed to put links here) from YMDK and  npkc. Does anyone have seen and felt them?

Originally I wanted to buy blank cherry profile ePBT caps, but they would cost twice as much.

Quality is much better with ePBT in terms of thickness but they are okay I guess given the price difference

The thickness is the same. With EnjoyPBT you are paying for rounder corners, smoother finish, and better modifier lengeds. I just got 2 sets of YMD blanks (possibly made by NPKC?) and they're great.

I can second NPKC/YMDK caps. These have a rougher finish than ePBT (which I personally prefer) and are of course OEM instead of Cherry profile (up to you as to which is better).

They sell Cherry profile as well. Need to read store pages carefully sometimes in order to tell which is which.

Oh, that's cool!
