What is the thickness of these keycaps?
I've attached a picture of the DSA Eve Keycap, Varmilo Front Printed keycap, and the Vortex PBT Backlit keycap.
The Varmilo Keycaps are pretty thick! These are my favorite keycaps so far in terms of the sound, feel, and aesthetics, so much that I've bought another Varmilo KB (wired this time) with the dye sublimated grey keycaps. The Vortex PBT Backlit key is 1mm thick and the Varmilo is just barely thicker than it. The DSA Eve key is significantly thinner than either of the two. I ended not really liking the DSA Eve...
No problem~! I enjoy answering these questions because these are the same questions I've been asking myself whenever I'm thinking of buying a new keycap set.
And honestly, the value of the Vortex PBT Backlit keycaps is probably better than these. It would likely only be a matter of preference over the aesthetics and how willing you are to pay for it! For me, the texture of the keycap (a little less rough than either the Vortex or DSA), the thickness, and the front printed legends (quite legible as you can see in the picture) are what would make me think buying a set of these keys is worth it over any other comparable PBTs. But, alas, that is only my preference!
My keyboard is the Varmilo VB87M Cherry MX Black, with white case, keycaps, and LEDs; perhaps, the sheer amount of white lends to the visibility of the legends haha
