Best I've ever used, but not perfect
When I first opened these keycaps, I was pretty dissapointed. The packaging is horrible, every key has a noticeable injection mark at the back, and some of the legends had uneven lines, particularly the longer lines in the blocknet set. I was confused why anyone would buy these for over double the price of the competing Akko set, which also has the benefit of being more durable than this abs plastic. I had planned on giving 1 star here and maybe looking to return the set if possible.
All of these worries faded when I started typing. I don't know why, but this set of keycaps is by far the most comfortable I've used. It might be the smoothness or the weighting, I really don't know. All I know is that I just want to keep typing on these. I've been inventing excuses to type on these. I don't even write reviews but I am just to have the pleasure of typing. These are the best keycaps I've ever used. If you've never typed on a GMK set before, they will be the best you've ever used.
I would give these 5 stars but for $140 I really can't forgive cosmetic flaws like the imperfect legends and injection marks. If you have the money, do yourself the service of buying these or another GMK set if you prefer a different colorway. I can't imagine switching back to anything else now that I've tried these. I'm putting in an order for more modifiers right now.

More injection marks.
Bent legend line. These lines are all thinner than the rest so I assume the doubleshot plastic was not sturdy enough to hold shape for such a long, thin line.
I understand that these are all minor flaws but for the price point it's still absurd that there are noticeable flaws at all.
Drop: if any of these flaws are one offs and you'd like to fix this, please contact me and I'd be more than happy to update my review. I want so bad for this set to be perfect.
Would recommend to a friend.
