 I have been looking for some replacement keycaps for this board, the XArmor U9BL-S LED backlit mechanical gaming keyboard. They are apparently not quite the same as the ducky set. Does anyone know where I can find these either individually or in a full set for this board? Are there other sets that will work with this board? I love this keyboard and I would hate to think I have to replace it over a couple of broken keycaps.

 Thank you for any help you can give me. I am new around here.

There are no aftermarket keycap set that will iOne backlight keyboard compatible 100% due to the different size key on the bottom row. Best bet would be to contact the iOne sub brands (Qpad, Xarmor, Max, Tessoro, Razer, etc.) and plead support/sales to sell you a keycap replacement set if it must be backlight compatible. If you don't mind regular keycap your options become a little more.

I contacted ione today and they sent me back to maxkeyboards.com

 I sent maxkeyboards sales an email to see if they offer them at all. So far on their site I cannot locate the key caps I need so hopefully they will email me back with something that can help.

 I know this keyboard is not for everyone but I have to admit, I love this keyboard. I would hate to have to replace it after only 2 years. It took me quite a while to find a board with cherry browns and blue backlighting. Just in case I do have to replace it do you guys know of any other boards with cherry browns and blue backlighting that are not over 200 bucks?

I would suggest Ducky Shine 2.

I just replaced the entire set of keycaps with a complete set form max keyboards and yeah 50$ is a big ouch to pay when you only really need 2 "old" keycaps.  I have available a nearly entire set of old keys except for 2 keys which have broken stems ( PrintScreen, H ).
Let me know which keys you want and how much you want to offer and I will gladly ship them to you.  I don't want all my money back it's much better then dealing with the unhelpful iONE.

send me a PM on the board and maybe I can help you.
