About this deal

It’s up to you to decide which type you think is better, but if you want my opinion, it’s PBT all the way. These ABS keycaps offer compatibility with a multitude of keyboard layouts, including popular ANSI and ISO standards. They're also easier to clean and replace than their ABS counterparts, since they're less likely to snap or crack when pried from the keyboard itself. We’ll go more in detail about the main differences between the two and some other interesting keycap variations. Double Shot keycaps are more durable and more expensive than standard keycaps and are available in both PBT and ABS materials.

Some items may arrive before these dates, but we can't guarantee this due to the huge volume of parcels couriers are currently processing, so please bear with us. One plastic is used for the main housing unit while the other is injected inside the main keycap to form the stem that connects to the switch, and is used for the color of the inscription. Also, some keyboard brands, such as Corsair, have different keycap widths on the bottom row of the boards.If you plan to use the same keyboard for years to come then it may make more sense to add a set of PBT keycaps that will certainly last you throughout the life of the keyboard and beyond. Keycaps constructed through dye-subbing have a higher chance of fading and are not as resistant to general wear and tear. PBT keycaps are heavier than ABS keycaps and produce a more crisp sound, providing a smoother, more responsive typing experience. However, its physical characteristics are quite distinct, leading to a noticeable difference when used for keycaps.

Sufficient Keycaps are included to change all keys of a mechanical keyboard with ISO layout to black.Some people may not appreciate the sound that PBT keycaps make, as they tend to make a deeper sound due to thicker plastic. Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. For a while, PBT has been considered the superior material, while ABS was considered low-quality and cheap.

It doesn't make sense for manufacturers (and consumers) to incur increased expense for a product they're not really going to put to the test. While it depends on the manufacturer, PBT tends to have a deeper, crisper, and less tinny sound when typing than that of a typical ABS keycap set. ABS Doubleshot Keycaps utilize a dual-molded design to produce clean legends guaranteed to never fade over time.PBT are considered to be superior, since they are more durable and don’t develop a shiny look to them over time. Please note that the product images used are for illustrative purposes only and may differ slightly from the actual product.
