KBC keycaps half and half for LED mechanical keyboards

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can someone give me an input on the quality of these keycaps, I have done some reading left and right about keycaps (ABS,PBT,Double Shots...) and here I'm thinking of returning the Meka G1 because in a week of use the lettering already is fading away. While I still can return the Meka G1, I can get the Zibal 60 for the same price + is back lit. The only question is the only keys I could of find for back lit are the half and half KBC which I have never heard of them...... Here is the link of the keys http://www.ebay.com/itm/104-KBC-half-Clear-key-caps-any-Cherry-MX-Switches-Keyboard-Filco-Noppoo-/300596787260?pt=PCA_Mice_Trackballs&hash=item45fcf6f83c ,and hope someone can give me an input of the keys:

1.VERY IMPORTANT legend on keycaps durability,will they fade away fast?
2.How is the overall build quality comparing to the PBT keycaps.

But most likely I'm worried about the lettering to be honest,thanks in advance.

Those keycaps you've linked are ABS so they'll still fade after awhile and also if you really want them, buy direct from qtan's online store. They're cheaper (no eBay's fee) and here's the link.

Thanks Reaper,but I think every since I purchased the Meka G1 I kinda got the feeling of what quality stuff mech keyboards are made.the Meka G1 screams quality but the keycaps fading away just killed for me,which it means another 50-60 bucks for PBT's or worse for the Zibal 60 since I would never find double shots to be able to use the LEDs once the stock keycaps start to fade away....

So its round 2 for me, and I brought it to 2 overall quality keyboards that will last in every aspect,one is pricey but has Led's the other dont have leds but it has good price. Deck Legend Fire and Unicomp space saver, I'm afraid I might buy both of them lol.

I have those keycaps on the black widow ultimate. Been about 3 months and they're not fading. Here's a picture.

Np, can't really get a good photo of them with my camera. They aren't that bright in person.
