Which kind of LEDs should I buy for a nice glow under black DCS keycaps? 3mm round flangeless or 2x3x4mm rectangular? Clear or diffuse? I'm leaning towards white color LEDs.
This is all new to me so any advice is much appreciated.

2x3x4 LED works well in my ergodox. I recommend it. Clear and diffuse is up to personal preference. However, if you have translucent keycaps, they will do the diffusing for you. I think clear might be better in this case.

I also went with 2x3x4 white clear LEDs (from amazon). I wired them such that they are through the switches for all the alpha and num switches, and through the bottom for the left, right, bottom and thumb clusters.

Why did you go through the bottom for some? What's the benefit?

It was more of a "look" thing. I wanted the edges of the case to glow, and for the main keys to glow from under the caps.
