Potential Group Buy? New 2013 Rainbow PBT Keycap Set
« on: Wed, 10 October 2012, 14:47:29 »
Found this on Taobao. They call it the 2013/new rainbow PBT keycap set (old one is called classic):




I really want to get one and was wondering if anyone who is also interested would be nice enough to make a IC thread in the Group Buy forum (I do not have the privilege yet) to see if other GH members would be interested in a Group Buy as well. The listing price on Tabao is ~$55 for the 104 set, but they also have the 87 set for ~$50. Available in top and side print flavors.

I like the color on the new one but that space bar is warped

Do you mean the two tone coloring or that the space bar is bent?

Warp is common problem. It's why thin oem profile pbt sucks.

Maybe a little but they don't come to you looking like a bananna. I also haven't noticed any dimpling in the tops on the thick ones, which can be quite noticable on the thin oem ones.

I've fixed 3 PBT spacebars with a hair dryer, not that hard.

I agree, but I really like these keys too. I like the way the rainbow is on this. It blends really well.
