I was thinking lint and dust, but doritos should do the job just fine, too.

Maybe dusty, but my similar hypers are fine, and don't seem to be dust magnets

Those are not similar, they're translucent. Won't let you see dust that creeps up inside.

Don't like it. Pudding diffuses light. Looks better imo.

G.Skill's rams are good but I doubt this keycap set can bring you a good typing experience. And talk about the aesthetics, transparent keycaps are horrible tbh.

I would not put on my desk, even if they gave it for free.

Why would anybody want this? Light coming from the bottom of the keys has always bugged me. The lettering/numbering on the keys should be the only light source, in my opinion.

But they're not, because they're clear... I might have to try these out and see if I like them better than my blank translucent caps

People like to pimp everything these days...

But I'm with you, the problem with many keycaps is the led on top doesn't light the symbols on the bottom. Though be leaking light left and right (pun), these may actually improve on that.

These let a lot more light out compared to the puddings from hyperX, which would be an upside for keyboards that only light up one side of the key (looking at you, razer)

personally, i hate LED's right to my eyeballs so diffused puddings all the way

I like these buuut...I like my HyperX caps more :D

Also, if G.Skill doesn't price these competitively, in the same range as HyperX's, count me out. And given that these have a completely clear bottom, I don't see them being in the same price range as the HyperX caps. Think more around the price of Corsair's keycap set...

Wait are you people talking about pudding keycaps from one specific brand? Pudding is the type of keycap. I think it was first seen on GMMK boards but could be wrong since I don't follow MKB scene. Then there's loads of cheap chinese alternatives.

hyperX puddings are pretty much the gold standard
