Product Description

Why does this only have one windows key?

There's a couple of really weird exclusions here, like the top row pg dn and end keys, 1u numpad 0 key, and 1.5u alt and fn needed for a drop shift keyboard and other 1800/96% layouts. It would really help broaden compatibility if there was support for the non-standard bottom row using 1.5 u ctrl and alt and 6u spacebar. There's not a lot of nice pbt backlit sets out there right now and adding that would give lots of people with other brands of gaming keyboard the opportunity to get a nice set. Add in 1u ctrl, alt, and fn keys for the 65%, 75%, and 1800 boards that use them and you'd also make this set work for a lot more people. I personally would really like to see pg up and pg dn in rows 2 and 3 respectively plus a row 4 end for the 65% right column that's common on non-drop boards. This isn't as important to me as the other things I mentioned but I think that is a much more commonly used layout if popular GMK sets are anything to go by. (row numbers assuming #1 is the number row and #4 is the shift row) Sweet sets though, I'm very interested to see where you can take them and I think it's great we are getting good pbt backlit sets lately. EDIT: Oh, also I think the kit image makes it a little tough to tell the row height of some of the keys. The 1.75u shift being shown next to enter is slightly misleading, but it took me quite a while to realize that the navigation keys shown above the numpad are for the alt right column and not for 1800 layouts. SECOND EDIT: I also didn't realize that the drop shift uses a 1u + key on the numpad, so that is missing here as well as the proper row "-" key to accompany it.

Glad I could help then haha, set is well made and looks good but I'll stick with the stock caps until they bring out an adapted kit or add on.

Yes. But the legends for these caps won't match the media keys on your board

Oh man, come on. Missing so many keys. No 1u CTRL, ALT, FN, or OS keys. No 1.25u Shift key. No 1u numpad 0 key. No top row profile END or PGDN keys. No blank 1u keys; would have been nice to have a couple of blank 1u keys. No ISO support, for those couple of guys that use ISO layout keyboards; all 3 of them. ;) Why am I bringing that up? Well, this keycap set won't fit a Drop Shift keyboard, or any 1800 style keyboard. Also doesn't fit most compact 84 key keyboards. Needs less than a dozen keys to make this more compatible. If you have a Drop Shift, just move along. If you have an 1800 style keyboard? Move along. Lots of 1u on the bottom row, keep looking. 84 key compact? Keep looking. @Kevin for future runs of this, you guys might consider adding those missing keys. Would make this set way more useful.

Considering how people on reddit complain about ordering from drop to Europe, I can't imagine that many iso users are shopping here, so supporting it might not work out well for drop. I've never seen 1.25u shift used without iso as well. Good points otherwise, and also don't forget the 1.5u alt and fn keys for the drop shift

Will you ever be selling the sets including the 1u 0 numpad key for the Drop Shift? I'd like to be able to get a different colored set but the fact that that one key is preventing me from doing so is just kind of odd and frustrating.

The side profile image makes me think these caps use R1-R1 and not R0-R1 at the top, and there's a R1 Del key in the ALT right column set. I didn't realize that the numpad + is 1u, so yeah it's missing that and the R2 - key to go with it. And we're in custom keyboards after all, we shouldn't have to sacrifice the look with weird gaps in the bottom row.

You're right about Del. I wasn't thinking about the ALT; I've mostly been looking at off-the-shelf backlit keys from Vortex, Tai-Hao, etc. and the R1 Del was on my list.

Will this be continually offered or is it a one-time run with the current stock? I want to pair these with my Carina arriving in November, but I don't want to buy too early in case something better comes up.

What makes these better than the $30 Razer PBT keycaps? EDIT: Razer keycaps support standard bottom row and even has extra ISO keycaps. The lettering has better shine through and the caps themselves aren’t as rough as the default CTRL/ALT keycaps.

That's very strange, do they give you extras for the bottom row? In the amazon page for the razer keycaps the pictures clearly show a non-standard bottom row with a 1u windows key

That's dependent on your needs and for you to decide. If the Razer keycaps are better suited to your needs/preferences, then by all means, stick with them.

My spacebar is warped (skylight). On a standard CTRL. It is really annoying to hear the clattering. Is there anything I can do to fix that?

Sorry about that. A replacement would be best. There are, however, some DIY methods you could attempt if you are so inclined. Some people have reported putting the keycap in boiling water and then making sure the keycap is flat while it cools.

Currently debating between these and the Matrix keycaps to go on the Carina, anyone able to provide a comparison on the build and feel?

The lighter the keycap color, the more you get light bleed around the letters. That's an unfortunate fact of backlit keys. These Skylight keys are better than MANY others I've seen, but are far from perfect
