Not a bad price honestly. The fonts are decent but, I'm not a fan of all uppercase letters on the special keys. I'm sure a lot of people don't mind them though.

You can control the lights normally, few use rainbow puke, on mine, off is very easy too, but fair enough it is not for everyone.

In principle, yeah. From a font standpoint, the font on these SteelSeries caps look to be a tad larger, which is great for those of us who have trouble seeing, even with the amount of light this style of keycap gives off.

@VSG @W1zzard, any chance of getting a set of these for review and comparing them side by side with the HyperX pudding keycaps? :D

Which is also the same as the dozens of other pudding keycaps. The difference is going to come in the font, thickness, and material transparency. Most pudding keycaps copycat off 1st gen hyperx puddings (you can tell because they all use the same terrible font which was changed with gen2). Hopefully with the different font being used here there are other improvements as well.
