Mine finally came a couple of days ago and I wasted no time in checking all the LEDs worked and then removing the horrible laser etched keycaps and replacing them with my Tai-Hao Miamis.
Looks fantastic, but I'll be a bit put off buying anything with Costar stabilisers again in the future, it wasn't so much fitting the caps back on, it was having to use cling-film (saran wrap I think to you USA guys) to stop the little bits that go into the keycap from falling back out. Every stabilised keycap seemed to have one that would stick fast and one that would just drop out under it's own weight. I don't know if this is poor manufacturing on Tai-Hao's part or just those little things (forgot their name) being slightly off.
Fantastic keyboard though, I'm loving the MX Clears. Sorry about the Miami's picture, I'm sofa ridden after leaving the hospital. Best I could do.
What’s so wrong with etched PBT?
Nothing, really, the legends weren't as solid and crisp other forms of legend printing... also can fade over time, I hear? When you have a set of doubleshot PBT keycaps waiting to grace the stems of the Cherry switches, you kinda have to rush to swap them over.
