They do have a blank keycap set, it's just not in stock at elitekeyboards.

The special orders are they keyboards that come with blank keycaps only. Those should come back in stock late spring.

Yes, and there's also a difference between the blank keycaps on the blank keyboards, and the blank keycaps that you order separately.

In their printing process, they put a coating over the entire key after they put the letter on (see "pad printing" in the guide). The keycaps on the Otaku keyboards skip the lettering part, and get the coating. The keycaps you order separately are never put on the printing line to begin with, so they don't get the coating at all.

Neither is better than the other, they just have a slightly different texture. Just thought I'd point that out.

Well I placed my order as well for the Majestouch Tenkeyless Tactile Touch as it is what I need space wise since I use the G13 for gaming anyways. I wanted to see if i could pick it up since I'm only 12 miles away from them but no dice. I should receive it tomorrow! Can't wait till I go back home to Frisco and set it up.
Thx Manyak and all for help!

Will there be a difference between how fast the keycaps turn shiny between the two? I would assume the ones without that extra coating would have either a difference in the amount of shine or the time it takes to turn shiny.

I think the coated ones would take longer to shine, as it takes virtually no time for the uncoated ones to start to shine.

Hi
I finally found a US qwerty mechanical keyboard in France (well there's the Steelseries 7G but that's a bit pricey)
G80-3000LSCEU-2

Which switches does it use? is it a decent price (by European standards)?

Actually my blank set isn't as fine. You can tell by comparing the space bars. I don't have a great camera this is the best I could do.

I'm just trying to decide between waiting for the otaku version of browns or buying the normal version and then buying the blank keycaps later. It seems pointless to spend $30+ for a set of blank keycaps if there aren't going to be any advantages to them over the ones that come on the otaku.

lol I didn't see that thanks!

How loud are blue switches? Will I hear them over my audio system? through my headphones?
