Blank white PBT or laser engraved white PBT keycaps?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I very much like the blank white key look on a black board. My question is since I've never seen laser engraved white PBT caps in person how noticeable are they compared to blank white keycaps? I ask because I'm not 100% on my typing ability as far as finding where exactly keys like: *&$(^, prtscrn, etc are first try everytime, and I would still sometimes like to look to fix myself on where I'm at on the keyboard. Do you think I should get blank keycaps and get used to it or are PBT white on white laser engraved keys not noticeable unless you really look at them very close? Thanks for the help.

Get the blank ones. Use a touch typing program to learn your special character keys. I liked stamina touch typing when I was working on it.
As for how noticeable they are depends on the lighting of the room. But, be classy; get blanks.

Probably depends on the lighting, as the engraving is going to be most notable from it's own shadows. I think both look cool, really personal preference. I also like the key-caps that have the printing on the front. I'm in the market for a set of white key-caps for my tenkeyless as well. Where are you picking yours up?
