Very pleasant and vintage-looking profile, but the legends get dirty quite quickly
I love the feeling when typing on it, but the legends, especially those of more often used (or maybe heavier hit) keys like Enter, get filthy quite after a few months already. so that the key caps look rather grungy after a while. This also lowers the initially good contrast of the legends remarkably. Minus one star for that reason. (I though didn't experience any wearing-off as others did, the legends are still all there, just no more that white.) Since all rows have the same profile, this key cap profile/set is well-suited for more exotic keyboard layouts like e.g. most 40% keyboards. One thing I though don't understand is the flat top of the space bar. It doesn't seem to fit to the way more rounded design of all other key caps where the top resembles a dish. Would neither recommend to a friend nor not recommend to a friend as this mostly depends on if the friend is ok with those lower-quality legends.

I've had this set on my 65% board that I use for work for almost a year now. Very slight fading on the left shift key but otherwise it looks the same as it did on the day I got it. I'm a big fan of the profile too, the spherical tops hug my fingers nicely.

Way more comfortable than I thought!
I prefer XDA most of the time, but wow these are so crazy beautiful to type on! My first real complaint is that they are ABS plastic, and I'm kind of a material snob. It doesn't even bother me at all anymore, they are really nice sounding, and don't have any perceived flex to them, like some cheap ABS sets have. Great buy, and I'm waiting for them to drop again! One thing that would improve this set, is if they were either in PBT or doubleshot legends.

Interesting profile
The quality of the keycap is good. It feels a bit slippery, but it adds to the rhythm of typing. The quality of printing is good, but if it is a defect, strong LED lighting is seen through the keycap.

Good value, unique profile
As others here have noted, the legends fade on heavily used keys (my daily driver’s left shift is wearing quite fast). Other than that, I’d say this is a nice value keyset. I really enjoy the profile; I hope they make more sets in ADA.

Decent Keycaps
I ordered these for the price. They look good and feel decent. Since they are single shot ABS, they feel a bit thin when typing. I wasn't loving the sound either as they don't weigh hardly anything. Lesson learned on these.

Okay value
The lettering wears off a bit faster than i was expecting (daily use), and some of the caps started to become loose on the switches. Other than that, the build quality is decent and clean, and they feel solid.

I purchased the key set for my Preonic keyboard (orange case, cherry MX brown) and it looks great! It's a pleasure to use it. Robust keycaps, great quality, clean and vintage aspect, very good feeling and fantastic glance. No issue or drawback to highlight at the moment. Looking at the photos on the site my expectations were high and fortunately they weren't betrayed. If we really want to split hairs the fact of not having a key set designed specifically for ortholinear keyboards forced me to buy two complementary keysets but it wasn't a big problem. I recommend this product, I'm enthusiast. Great job.

Great keycaps for the price with some minor setbacks

I am a big fan of these, I got the additional modifiers so that I can put it on my Race 3. First thing I noticed is how clean these keycaps look out of the box. The feel on these is very very nice. As I usually use DSA I was not sure what to expect, but I am blown away by how comfortable these are to type on! Compared to the stock race 3 caps, these things blow it out of the water. The only gripes I have is that the spacebar had some slight warping, which is somewhat common in keycap sets anyway and some keys lettering is slightly misaligned (see N key). A dedicated ESC key for the race 3's non-standard sizing would be nice, but I did not expect to get one anyway Apart from that, I think the keycap set is excellent and I am very happy with my purchase.

Great quality
Been using mine for 6+ months as my daily driver at work. I have not seen any shine or fade on these So i would say these are great quality. They feel like scooped DSA. Mine fit totally well on my stems and i have no issues at all with them so far.
