key caps make all the difference
« on: Sun, 03 November 2013, 10:22:46 »
I bought a second hand filco here from the classifieds and originally hated it because of the shiny ABS caps that were already on it. Well, today I got an idea and switched the caps from my Leopold with reds I was no longer using to my filco... and the simple fact they have no shine made it feel sooo much better. Also, a red esc key, all black caps with a white space bar on a white board actually looks pretty sweet.

Time to find some PBT caps now!  :cool:

Yes, keycap have big difference on typing enjoyment. Now don't waste your time and money and go straight to Cherry profile thick PBT.

I recently changed my mx green board and my YOTS to some of fengs thick keys and the difference is astonishing.
