Got mine today also, thanks Ragnorock for the quick shipping. I love the PBT keycap feel and now cant wait for /KL full set.

On my cmstorm with KBC PBT Keycaps, the white was almost a perfect match

I have them on MY cmstorm, and I also plan to put KL's caps on it too! We two are gonna have the same keyboard.

The SP PBT keycaps feel better to me, feels more like my topre keycaps for sure. That's why I can wait for the /KL set to come in.
OMG now I need a dye sub set of the Red Alert theme, if it feels like topre keycaps

Wonder if Sixty would let us use the files he sent into SP, we have to get his consense right? Since his modifiers were awesome also

Also Sixty's set had 170 keys, I think if we did that via dyesubs it would be super expensive, since \KL's set of 87 keys ran for like 90 something at 170 keys it would be double that? I think we should stick with 87 keys instead if thats the case lol

Someone should start a new group buy then. I'd be in for one set with either blue or red legends.

I would also like a kustom key...grey/beige with \KL sublimated in green, white and red =)


I would want both also...preference red first and then blue.

Actually this how this board will sit, I dont like the white keys with blue keys mixed and then all the red on the board...also for the price of that set I want to use all the keys..hahaha =P

Yea I wouldnt mind just an 87/88 kit , the red alert kit was so big because of the extra keys for all board types and full size, so I probably wouldnt have used all of them anyways.

I wouldnt mind just using /KL setup for his GB and just change the color parameters...

Red on dark grey!

So it won't be a total red alert rip off. But I'll buy either theme lol.

Lol, back to my original idea of Red on back almost.

I'm about to go grab my new Topre out of the mailbox, so what you guys decide to do on dyesubs is irrelephant to me, I'm good with ABS on my cherry boards.

PBT does feel like boobies though. :P

I've done an initial placement of these keys.  This is my keyboard for work, so no actual gaming happening on this keyboard.

There is, however, plenty of Science being done:

(keyboard = Leopold Otaku w/ Cherry MX Red + 'firm' soft landing pads)

edit:  You may be wondering why I picked certain caps for certain keys:
Esc:Duh
F1:  What sort of science can't Aperture help with?
~:   balanced out that row
1:  Is a lie
2:  gears crunching you up
5:  Well, why not.  More of a marker
0:  zzzzap!
-:  Single line
=:  Bunch of lines
Ins:  Needed a place to put a key.
Del:  deleting a turret. Am I doing it right?
Scrl:  KVM switching key
Num:  OMG it has a Lock!

Red on Gray or Red on Black would look really clean. Rag and I were talking about it the other day in regards to how amazing the red color looks in contrast with darker base-keys.

Thanks :)  I had to put a few markers on for a few keys I use as part of key combinations while not actually typing.  Touch typing is fine without them, it's that damn hunting and pecking for occasional keys.

Lol I know what you mean. It got so frustrating in SC2 that I bought ninjas instead. I love the look of otaku, but when it starts to get in the way of functionality its a problem.

They have been shipped out to everyone but the Canadians, which will ship out in about a week.

I'm not doing another round until next year, providing SP decides to stay true to their word and does actually run a second set. This one just finished.

I'm sure this is no surprise for most of you, but for reference here are some shots comparing the key profile from my Portal set with row 1-4 caps from a white Leopold Tenkeyless otaku board.  The Leopold caps are row 1, 2, 3, and 4 from left to right.  Note that although these are advertised as row 4 (number/fn key row), they're closest in shape to row 3 on a Leopold board.  (They don't *exactly* match any of the rows.)  Don't get me wrong, the caps are beautiful and I'm pleased, but if you're planning to mix them into a Leopold board then you should know what to expect.

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 32173[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 32174[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 32175[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 32176[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 32177[/ATTACH]

Note that the first two shots are *not* exactly edge-on --- they're from a slightly elevated angle so that you can see the shape of the Leopold caps behind them.  As the third shot shows, purely edge-on shots would not show all four caps.

Thanks to Ragnorock for organizing a great group buy!  Cheers---

They don't match any of the rows because SP produces Cherry-style caps and, therefore, have a different profile for their keycaps than a Filco/Leo/Noppoo/WASD/Das/Rappoo/Deck/XArmor.

Actually the Noppoo POM/PBT keys have identical key profile to Cherry.

Well shoot. Replace Noppoo with a different Chinese Clone (Ducky) and ignore my mistake.
