Pckeyboard Model M keycap replacements

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was curious if anyone here has experience with the key replacements that pckeyboards.com has to offer? I'm looking to upgrade the "look" of my model M, but I don't want to sacrifice the feel by putting cheap feeling keys on it. I know I can get a whole new blank black set for $20 bucks, but wanted to ask first.

The other option I've been toying with is getting a new keyboard. At first I was really interested by the ducky, but here lately the customization + excellent reviews of the WASD have me really interested in them. Just figured I could save some cash for the time being by giving the Model M a face lift.

Thanks

I ordered a set of yellow wasd keys and a red esc from unicomp and they feel no different than the original keys of my ssk. They don't feel cheap at all. I also own a unicomp spacesaver, which obviously brings new keys and they are pretty good compared to my other model m.


I was actually looking to get the APL set but with the announcement of EK getting clears, going to put that on hold.

Unicomp probably uses the same outsourced manufacturer IBM did.

They use the same molds and printing process that IBM did.

I believe they've said they roll their own.

The final dye sub. But I doubt they do key molding in house.
