backlit keycaps, Ducky or Tai-Hao?
« on: Sat, 27 March 2021, 09:31:36 »
Hello, I am looking for PBT doubleshot backlit/shine through keycaps.
I've narrowed it down to Ducky seamless

And Tai-hao

Is one bighter, or better quality then the other? I am having a very hard time finding comparison between the two. Any insight is appreciated.

My guess would be the ducky keycaps are better. The reviews seem to indicate that as well.

Thank you for the feedback! I noticed the legends on the taiho the alpha keys look great but the rest look dim.
I guess I could also consider the Drop skylight caps

I've never used Tai-Hao or Drop but personally I find that Ducky make pretty great backlit ones that they primarily use on their boards like the One 2 Mini and etc. and they often have good QC as well as the fact that they come in a variety of colors and are double shot, hope this could help  :thumb:.
