Donor keycaps for Cherry G80-3494

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I love the feel of my cherry mx reds but I'm not too big of a fan of the keycaps that came standard with the board. Are there any cheap cherry keyboards that I could buy to replace my current keycaps with?

Why not just buy an keycap set, instead of a whole board?

I'm really not sure where I would buy a keycap set seeing as cherry doesn't list anything for the g80-3494 on its website anymore.

Head over to Geekhack and search their group buy forum. Tons of choices there.

That keyboard uses Cherry MX switches, correct? You should be able to use any keycaps designed for that switch. You can find keycap sets on Taobao, ebay, GH, and Qtan's store, to name a few.

There's a GB for a white on black double shot cherry set @ GH going on. 25 shipped if I'm not mistaken.

Yup it uses mx reds, I don't see why other keycaps wouldnt work for it I just thought the only way to get new ones was to switch them with another keyboard..thanks guys!

Problem is that the GH groupbuy will first ship out in 2012 after the world has ended
