Clomonico21Waits are always long on Massdrop. Massdrop serves as a middle man for group buys. A lot of people submit orders to something through Massdrop, Massdrop submits a bulk order to the original company, but then they have to actually receive all the orders in New Jersey before they can split them up into all the individual orders and ship them out.

Joined the other silicone drop because they finally added a solid color (clear...) and then just as it ships I see this drop with actual solid colors...

AkephalIt's actually not a bad thing. Truth is, none of the keys larger than 1U work well since they bend when pressed anywhere but dead center where the switch is. You'd learn the hard way that you couldn't use this on the Enter key anyways.

I was in on the multi colored silicone keycap drop. There are quality issues, some deformities in the stem. 6 months out and still no replacement. Had heard bad things on numerous forums about quality issues with the MD no brand name products, now I confirm it. I cannot recommend this at all.

aouesnthIf I may ask, are you currently using the set now? If not, would you be willing to give/sell me one of the keys from the number row? I'm curious as to how these feel, but don't exactly want an entire set. Thanks.

derhpI am using the set, minus the Q key which didn't have a working stem. Also, all keys over 1U ie any long key ie TAB, ALT etc bend when not pressed dead center. So pressing them is pretty impossible.

kuhnsrcSoft and quiet keycaps sound good on paper, but the silicone getting torn up set aside, ask yourself: How dusty can your keyboard get? If you don't know now I assure you it'll become apparent with the grippy rubbery material these are made of. Then there's the matter of getting dust off the keycaps.

The aesthetic of the watermelon on blue LEDs is pretty bomb

Does anyone know what the Shore hardness of these are? Curious as to whether they will rip easily, or deform too easily to the point where you are just typing on the stems.

CeleraCan't say the exact hardness on these but they definitely need a good amount of force to bend. I'm using cherry clears and gateron blacks and I really have to go out of my way to bend my spacebar between the key stems.

evilunicorncatThey're pretty much as stiff as your average pencil eraser I'd say.

Really curious about these keycaps for the feel, but I'l save the money for something else.

Not something I see myself actively using, but I have to admit I am curious as to how they feel to type on

That's how I was with the 1st silicone keycap drop. Truth be told, it's bad... very bad. They may as well toss the modifier keys out, they all bend too much to be useful unless you type with your finger directly pressing above the switch and not to the sides of the switch on long keys. If they sold just a set with no modifiers and knocked the price down like $10 then it might be ok. They need to maybe do a ABS/PBT shell and coat that with silicone for the modifers.

aouesnthI didn't have the problem of them bending too much during use, but they definitely can bend if you take the keys in your hand and simply apply force to them. They typed fine for me personally, but I'm not a typist so maybe it's just me. Only reason I don't use them as my daily driver is because I don't prefer the type of sound they put off, it makes clears feel to clicky sounding and not as thocky sounding.
