A solid bright-white keyset w/ a retro-inspired profile
Copy-pasted from my review of the WOB set, because the very same applies here, right down to which keys aren't quite up-to-par with the rest of the set. (A, S, Z, X, and C - to a greater or lesser degree, each of these has thinner, less consistent legends - this appears to be an injection problem rather than a tooling one but it is interesting to note that both sets had similar issues with the same caps.) A timeless colorway, a venerable classic design, and a substantial physical presence make these some of the best keycaps you can put on a keyboard - provided an enjoyment of high-profile, of course. It's hard to overstate how good these look and feel - they really are on another level in a number of ways. So why not five stars - or even four? A small number of keys weren't injected *quite* right, resulting in thinner and/or less consistent legends than intended. I'm a little unhappy with how the Z and S keys look under close inspection, but that's not enough to keep me from loving this keyset and recommending it to anyone who enjoys the aesthetic. Some of the inconsistencies are more obvious on the BoW set because light diffuses a bit more through the white - this makes the edges on the "flubbed" legends less crisp and more obviously out-of weight. (The weighting for "BACKSPACE" is all over the place, for example.) Even with the few and minor manufacturing flaws of this particular example, the quality is shoulder-to-shoulder with the very best out there - and IF they manage to QC those manufacturing kinks out of subsequent runs, I'd easily class MT3 ABS as the overall highest quality keys you can put on an MX-compatible switch.
