Filco keycaps (104 key)
« on: Wed, 29 December 2010, 19:45:13 »
So I was stupid and sprayed isopropyl alcohol over my keys and it ruined them. I'm chasing a replacement set. I'd prefer lettered ones if possible.

Thanks for the fast replies guys, however I'd prefer not to buy from that TW site if it can be helped because I have no idea how to navigate it - plus the keys are listed for $800 and also I'd prefer lettered keycaps, not blank ones.

Just to clarify, that isn't $800 in US dollars, it's in NT$ (New Taiwan Dollars). Currently, NT$800 is roughly $27 in USD.

Thanks neptunebadger. I thought that was the case but I'm glad you clarified it. My biggest concern was whether or not I'd be receiving a pallet of filco keys after placing the order.
