Oh right, I can see it now by the how the WNV keys look.  Well, emptythecache's pics make the gray look a darker than the pics I've seen on KBDMania. So maybe they were dyed darker for this group buy?

lol, no... Just bad lighting/camera  :p

I had imsto's dark gray PBT and the legends weren't as bold as I would have liked them to be on the darker background... this coupled with the smaller font from Vortex would be somewhat bothersome IMO.

All this being said I am still selling my set when they arrive... not because of the colors, but because I have very little patience. :)

Imsto doesn't have anything close to dark gray, and what he has is barely even medium gray imo.
I look forward to the day when there is a GB for dark gray Thick PBT and this may actually happen with Ivan's R3.

I figured imsto's gray was as dark as it should get for dye subbing legends... any darker and I wouldn't see the point.  Either way, I get everyone's point... you wanted them to be like the classic WYSE sets.

I guess I need to see them when they come in, Install them on the keyboard and judge it from there.

But sample that was given by Feng and was copy/paste from the pic of the full gray set onto a WYSE retro style mix of white with the gray did look to me like "descent-acceptable" gray color that would match nicely with black cases.

But at this point I have to wait and see how they actually look on the keyboard...... Anyways its a long shot till then, mein are not even being shipped.

it happens dude, my gray set from Imsto came with 7 keys damaged and I didn't checked the set for any missing keys. Lucky me checked it 2 days a go and saw that one key is missing, I contacted Imsto and told him about the extra key missing and also lucky that he hasn't shipped the keys yet... So at least he will mail them all together...

Here the WYSE set looks better, gotta waith to see how things turn out...

I don't think it's updated.

Don't worry though. Mine is not on it either but I sent him a message about it and he said he was just too busy to update the list.

I would be pleased to see an updated list though.

Yea I know he's busy, but since the order is closed now, would be nice to have at least the full list of people who ordered it. I don't expect him to update the shipping info often, maybe not until all is shipped, but  to have the full list would be nice.

No worry still anyway  :cool:

 I imagine that the amount of work involved is HUGE

Feng, can you take 2 seconds to reply to a pm since is friday/weekend. Still waiting for you to reply back to me on the missing G key since tuesday in my WYSE set. Been waiting for my set since December for these PBT keycaps. I'm not even going to mention the \| legend key being wrongly labeled or the 2 keycaps (enter and right shift key). I just need a G key to complete the set. Thanks.

I wonder if anyone got the all grey sets. Would love to see it bc I haven't gotten mine yet. Maybe I shouldn't cave into my temptations and just persevere to the end!

I'll have good pics up of my all gray set on a Ducky when my down-arrow key cap comes in the mail from feng. (he forgot it :P)

The set is gorgeous and feels amazing.

Highly recommended that you use the hot bowl of water trick, to straighten out the space bar. It was very frictiony when first installed due to the cherry stabilizers, so I straightened it out in a hot bowl of water (Ouch!!! I put up with the pain, to have a straight bar though  :rolleyes:) I'll show you when I get my down arrow  ;D

Edit;
I have a confession to make. I no longer hate cherry stabilizers. I thought it was all like that - naw, I just had a warped space bar which didn't cope well with the cherry stabs.

Please do give tips on the hot bowl of water thing to straighten out the spacebar because my Grey set will also be going onto a Ducky with Cherry Stabilizers. I really do hope they come straight w/ no missing keys!!! I have said this before but I actually like Cherry stabilizers, maybe even prefer it :P

The way I did it actually was very rudimentary...boil some water, then poor it in a bowl, then wait until it's boarderline too hot for your hands to be in, then push the space bar down wards, turned upside down so that it straightens out. (for liability reasons I will say no higher than ~120F but I think mine was higher... my hands were a bright red when I was finished. They're fine now lol.)

I see~ Did it fit perfectly afterwards? I'm scared it'll get mega warped and it'll perma-damage it :(

Why upside down? I'm only asking because it would seem more intuitive to push down on the top side, being that the bottom is flat and not rounded.

I believe it's because the two ends of the spacebar end up coming up. Even if the top side is rounded, it's still straight. But I do see your point... I'm just scared that the keycap will expand because of the contortion and heat :(

The particular bowl I used was a concave, very rotund bowl.

My space bar happened to be bowed end-up... meaning it bent like a u shape kind of, either end of it sticking up.

See diagram below.

I've been waiting 4 months now for my keycaps.  I was so into keycaps 4 months ago.  Some people even accused me of spaming so I can sell something on geekhack.  This is how much I was into keycaps.  I couldn't wait to experience my first PBT set.   I have no lost all interest in keycaps during this wait for my first set.

Then don't do group buys. The thing with group buys is you get cheaper prices, but you'll always have to deal with some kind of wait for the product to be manufactured, shipped to the GB organizer, sorted out, then shipped to the GB participants. 4 months isn't even that long compared to what I've seen some group buys take.

Well most of the people who should have already received theirs, should be the people who ordered earlier on and got their sets when Feng had some sets on hand. Those of us who are still waiting should be people waiting on colored sets that Feng had to wait on to get shipped from China. He did say that he was going to ship them out the 18th though. I know he's been busy with school. Hopefully he'll give us a new update soon.

I think they said earlier that the \,| thing is due to the italic font. So the non-slanted bar appears slanted and vice versa.

Oh dayum! That is looking sharp! Makes me kind of regret not going with the WYSE :P Gives me an idea of what all Grey will look like though :) Thanks for the picture!

How are they feeling on the Greens? Big difference? I'm hoping they make a world difference...

They feel awesome! The space bar is a little warped but I'll be fixing that soon.

I thought the thicker keys would mask some of the clicky feel but they actually make them feel more crisp and solid.

oooooooo I'm soooo excited!!! Hopefully my keycaps will arrive soon :P Can't wait to throw them on dem Greens and experience this... This will make it harder for me to part with them, if I do decide to sell them. I'll be sure to test them on the Blues too. Thanks for the response!

Done diggity


Okay~ So for my report: I just placed them on my keyboard and must say they feel pretty damn good! They are currently placed on the Ducky Greens and I can say that the click does seem slightly more crisp but I wouldn't say more pronounced. I did notice though that the sound does get dampened quite a bit, which I expected because of the thicker plastic. It is now more of a clack than a click. I wouldn't say this is a bad thing but rather just different.

There is one problem that I did notice though, and that's that there seems to be a significant amount of scratches on them. This is my first time buying dyesub thick PBT's so I don't know if this a common issue but I just assumed it to be so. The numpad enter also has really warped paint/color. For the price I bought it though, I can't really complain :) I will post some pictures of this issue though. The blemishes didn't come out as well as I hoped but as those that have tried taking pictures of issues on keycaps before, it's not so easy to get the lighting right.

Also need to straighten out my spacebar but mine didn't come too bad. It doesn't really affect the functioning of the keycap but the slight bent shape is bugging me so I'll probably do the hot water treatment.

Pics:



Here are some pictures of the scratches and warped dye color (they are more apparent and obvious in real life than these pictures). Click on the pictures for zoom and then click on the zoomed picture again for max resolution which you can drag around.

It has this heft to it that makes it feel really good. The heavy weight just makes it feel more expensive than it really was hahaha.
