Should be noted these will work with any mechanical keyboard with switches that use a cherry stem (so most of them), and should work with most 61/87/104 key keyboards.

Great deal if you need some cheap keycaps, legends are kinda whack though.

Really can’t go wrong at this price.

I guess for people who would like to customize the colour of their keys, mix and match or just themed gaming stations. Or replacement for damaged/worn out paint on caps.

A good mechanical keyboard can last a lot longer than the keycaps if they aren't high quality.

People spend $200+ on keycap sets that are technically inferior to the one in the OP, and sometimes another $100 or so for modifiers, all because of the sound they make, how they feel and how pretty they look. Not uncommon to see $500+ keyboards.

Not much reason behind it other than look and feel, keyboard people are crazy.

People like me who bought the redragon k551 and hate the font they use.

Going to buy one. Thanks.

Look and feel. Key caps are what you touch, and so the surface texture matters. The fit and finish matter as well; when you touch the keys (not pressing on them, but just resting your fingers on them) there's sound from the surface interaction (keyboard ASMR)...and then there's also the sound from the switches as well.

Razer keyboards too. On Razer keyboards like mine, the Windows-key is narrow (about the same width as a regular letter key).

Funny this thread popped up. Quarantine has made me jump into the rabbit hole of mechanical keyboards. Was about to drop $80 on two Razer PBT keycap sets....

Anyway, this is a solid deal. Newegg has the black set for around the same price for those interested:

They go with high-end keyboards for a custom look and feel.

If you don't have a mechanical keyboard with removable keycaps, then obviously these are of no value to you.

I have a HyperX Alloy FPS Pro TKL keyboard (Cherry MX Red).

Does it have standard bottom row and/or do these keycaps work with that keyboard? Thanks.
