Help me choose the best key caps for my Leopold

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just bought my first leopold tenkeyless Otaku with browns.

now to throw some UW color on there, but could use some help determining the best caps to get. Price is not a huge factor for me, i would prefer higher quality and reliability. here is what I have been able to find as options:

KBC PBT $30.00 from U.S. Seller

KBC POM $24.99 from China Seller

KFORCE Unknown $15.00 from China Seller

Thanks in advance for the help and advice.

the pom you list i think is only for cherry kb height which is lower than oem's, and won't fit perfectly on leopold. kforce do not worth 15 dollars for a 37 keys set. so i would say pbt is the best. and the pbt you list is only 37 keys set. i would recommend wasdkeyboards's abs 87 keys set or kbc pbt 87 keys set.

check with this seller of this web. http://www.vendio.com/stores/E-sports-Gaming-equipments/category/pbt-key-caps/catId=3982960

btw, abs is easier to be shiny than pbt. and filco's white abs is the best abs i ever used. kbc side printed pbt is a great choice for pbt, if you do not like engraved style.

I am really liking the OCN/Tankguys/Ducky/KBC PBT Engraved keys.

Clean up well too.

Extra Buttons (Sanwas) for my CST LaserTrak Trackball.


The keys is getting shiny because the texture wearing down. No way to clean that off.

thanks for the tips. i am only looking for a 37 keys set, so I can have a purple/black color scheme. WASD does not carry purple unfortunately. I would love to find a 37 piece purple PBT engraved, but most of them are lasered I believe.

This site you linked looks like the place i will end up ordering from. every bought from them before?
