This one one of the best sets of PBT keycaps for Cherry mx mounts that I have ever purchased. The set could be used on its own for an all-blank keyboard, or it could be paired with other Ducky sets with legends. For example, I like my alpha keys to have legends, but I prefer blank modfier keys.
The fit and finish of the caps is excellent. The surface is dry and smooth to the touch, similar to that of the high-end caps on Topre-switch boards such as the RF87U or HHKB Pro 2. The fit of the stems is uniform across all the keys, and the keycap height is uniform within each row.
Moreover, there are very few sets of this caliber that are available in OEM profile, which I have discovered is one of the few profiles that works well with the Novatouch keyboard. Lower profiles such as Leopold or Cherry result in down-stroke contact with the switch housing or plate, thus producing a clicking noise. This noise is completely absent when using the Ducky set.
I have only two minor quibbles. First, the spacebar has a slight amount of show-through of the stems, but this is barely noticeable unless you are looking for it under direct lighting. Second, unlike the Ducky cream and green set, which is packaged in cardboard trays in a sturdy cardboard box, the gray and blue set comes in a long single clear plastic tray that can be difficult to open without causing at least some of the caps to jump out of their holders. I like some of the features of the plastic trays, but I prefer the compactness and better stackability of cardboard boxes for storage.
It took me a long time and considerable expense to find a keycap set that looked, felt, and sounded this good on the Novatouch keyboard, and I would expect the set to serve just as admirably on other Cherry mx-mount keyboards. Five stars.
Got these key caps to spice up my first keyboard--a Rosewill RK-9000--and they look awesome! Solid construction, great feel, and they come packaged well.
The colors are pretty fairly represented in the images: understated and not over saturated. I'd purchase another set of Ducky PBTs in the future.
These keycaps have actually grown to be my favorite! Ignore my previous review,
This is my 4th set of ducky keycaps.
I have the ABS Shine black / ABS Shine gray.
Green / Cream PBT
and now this blue and gray PBT
I have come to the conclusion that ducky is just bad at making PBT keys.
The edges are not clean at all and there is warping in random PBT keys.
The gray of these keys is almost yellow or green tinted which is gross in person. The image looks more of a washed out gray and my Shine grey ABS caps are a washed out gray.
Not worth the money!
