After using it for couple months I can say it's a worthy upgrade. The solid feel of PBT caps are incredible.

Sorry to add to such an old thread, but is there any chance of a black PBT cap set for the low profile Cherry keys? I'd suspect these switches will get more popular and show up on more models over time.

Sorry to necro post –

But I picked up a set of the Corsair PBT Double-Shot Keycaps (Black) for my K95 RGB Platinum Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. I’m very glad I did. The feel of the PBT keycaps is amazing, and the quality is top notch. They have enhanced my typing experience.

However, I would like to suggest a couple of things for future iterations of the set:

Firstly; there is an error in the guide-booklet that came with the set. The keycap to the immediate left of the “1” key needs to be substituted for the alternative one on the UK layout (it’s not highlighted in the guide as one that needs to be substituted).

Secondly; I would love to see an alternative space bar in the set – one that doesn’t have the heavy surface texture, but more like the texture on the rest of the keys.

Thirdly: the text on the EU/UK “Enter” key needs to be moved to the middle of the key or replaced with the “return” symbol (again in the middle of the key) so that it can take advantage of where the LED light is and actually light up the text.

Lastly; given this is a Corsair made set I would have loved to see it include replacement “G”/Macro keys as well – or even just half a dozen blank keys with squares to allow RGB light to get through.

If those revisions were made, I would be more than happy to pick up another set!

I am very pleased with this set – and I fully understand why these are not included as standard keycaps. There is a trade off in terms of RGB lighting intensity – but for this avid typist (and part time gamer) it is well worth it.

Just finally installed the set I got from Newegg a month or two ago. The lighting is terrible with a Strafe MK2. Most of the keys are only half lit as if the shine through section is thicker on half the key or something. They also aren't nearly as bright as the stock keys. Frankly if I got to these within the return window I would have swapped back to the stock keys and sent these things back.

Worth the $50 Corsair wants for them=NOPE
Worth the $25 I paid Newegg for them=Not really
Should I have purchase the pudding HyperX caps for $20 or some China knock offs and dealt with a funky bottom row=Yea probably as I honestly wouldn't feel so robbed right now.

Maybe I just got some old stock from original batches who knows but they sure aren't what I expected other then the feel. The non uniform shine through of the RGB is just terrible!
