Zalman Intros the ZM-K900M White Edition Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Zalman today introduced the ZM-K900M White Edition mechanical gaming keyboard. Based on the same platform as the original ZM-K900M, this keyboard features Kailh Brown mechanical switches, compared to the Kailh Blue switches the original comes with; and a white-colored front bezel. Kailh Brown switches offer a soft and bumpy tactile feedback. The Zalman ZM-K900M White Edition also features RGB LED illumination with on-the-fly settings, an onboard memory to store macro maps, N-key rollover, and 1 ms response time. Backed by a 1-year warranty, the keyboard is priced at USD $99.99, although from its 24th March launch, it can be had on Newegg at a special price of $79.99, until stocks last.

A white keyboard is a fantastic idea given how saturated black keyboards are in the market.

I feel that for white keyboards they need white keycaps with black letters that have transparent outline where diode shines through, but that would require really fine machining.

Most stock keycaps simply laser etch the paint off the existing keycap, so that would not be possible with white keycaps. An option would be to double inject the legends but here too you can't have the outlines be a different color. You can do dye sublimation but then they won't be translucent. The best option I can think of is pad/screen printing but it's not long lasting and dying out with time.

Amazing, I thought of the same things, came to conclusion it would have to be fine double inject for the font and then after that laser etching the paint off where the outline is :toast:
