I replaced the flimsy ABS stock caps on my Keychron K7 with the NuPhy COAST caps. Needed to modify the stems that go over the stabilizers, but that was an easy job for a Dremel and a few drops of superglue (had to sacrifice a few F-keys for it). The caps feel great and are thicker than I expected, which also improved the typing sound a lot. The shape and colors are also great. The only thing that I’m missing is a 1.75u escape key to replace caps lock but those are even a rarity among high profile sets.
A bless to my Streak65
I found this Nuphy Keycap when I was start giving up to my streak65's ABS keycap. An oily and shiny looks of low quality ABS is really annoying if you use your keyboard heavily 8 hours a day.
Initially, I was full of doubts whether this Nuphy keycap will make a lot difference to my keyboard since the XDA keycap profile is not my things.
All of my doubt gone soon after I received the keycap and installed it to my keyboard. This Nuphy Keycap is totally a BLESS to my streak65.
Start with the heights of the keycaps, it makes my keyboard feels more "low profile" without compromising the travel distance of each key.
The "key spacing" between key also feels so great. I just realized this Nuphy keycap profile is not similar as XDA profile. This nuphy keycap has a wider touch surface which is felt perfect to my taste.
PBT material quality of the keycap also really good . The keycap's font also simple and elegant. It is not using a fancy fonts which makes the keyboard legend looks "weirds" and sometime too "childish" for my taste.
The keycap is thick, and not feels cheap. You can clearly feel the different compared to ABS keycap material. Most importantly, it is not easily looks oily and shiny at least in 1 day full of use. PBT keycap is known for this superiority.
A fancy color of RGB lights also not my thing. But because of the non-shiny through keycap, I felt it is best for my keyboard.
As the keyboard user, I won't get distracted with RGB lights, but my keyboard still look…
I got these for my Keychron K3 Ultra-Slim & needless to say, they’re much better than the original keycaps. Since they’re textured PBT, they don’t get all oily & slippery as fast as ABS.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to stick all of them on the board due to the K3 having different stems for the keys with stabilizers, but I managed to get the rest of them on with relative ease.
The only thing I have against these keycaps is that they aren’t shine through, which makes it hard to see the keys in the dark.
Thank you for your support, your review means a lot to us!
best ergonomic mechanic keyboard
this is the best and coolest low profile keyboard you can get from the market, low profile keyboard keep your wrists safe and comfortable!!
only downside is their aren’t shine through i really love this colorway
Most attractive PBT keycaps for low profile👍
I ordered this attractive PBT keycap for my Keychron K3.
However, it did not adapt to the key with stabilizer of K3.
It's a shame, but the value of this keycap remains the same.
