My Miami set came in! I put them on Lolita Spyder I use at work.
Very nice! My first custom keyset was Tai-Hao Miami as well. It's a great place to start, although I had to use rubbing alcohol to remove that "Anti-Biosis Coating 99%" of theirs. I dunno if they still put it on their caps, but back then it would attract all sorts of dirt and grime.

I have seen that coating before and I am not fond of it but thankfully this set came without it.

@silkstone GeekKeys may sell metallic WASD clusters. I bought my GMK RGBY from them but they have a lot of metal key caps. They are located in China but shipping to the UK is never a hassle as it's cheap and doesn't incur import fees (UK customs has enormous bias towards Asian countries). Also check out MK.com.

Is this "metallic" plastic as in @Jetster 's Corsair WASDs or actually metallic? Corsair's are just rubberized plastic and that's not what geek keys is selling.

Be careful of what you buy. Some zinc keycaps have reportedly become discoloured after extensive use, but others have not.

I must admit, I saw Jetster's WASD cluster and thought it looked really cool. I'd like something similar but, possibly in black. I took a look at geekKeys, but they have nothing similar. I also scouted around on eBay, also nothing. :(

I'm not a huge fan of this stuff (too spoiled by EnjoyPBT, GMK and SP :p) as I don't game, but I can see the appeal. Unfortunately, I don't think black will be viable as I've never seen a WASD cluster keycap set of any material or profile in that colour. The closest you can get is probably one of the zinc/metallic keycaps, but in case you really want the Corsair one, they sell it on their website. http://www.corsair.com/en/fps-backlit-key-caps-keycap-puller-and-palm-rest

I mean, it is red, but I don't think you'll find "contoured" WASD caps like this anywhere else. Also comes with a left hand wrist rest (doesn't clip onto keyboard if yours isn't a K70) and a horrible keypuller that I would never let within 100 yards of my keycaps. For $14.99 that ain't too bad (well, again, my sense of "expensive" has been severely distorted after all this keycap craze :D).

Thanks. Yeah, i'm not too interested in spending lots of money. The $20 i spent on the Tai-Hao ABS ones is quite a lot for me. I actually liked the orange/black PBT ones they have, but they cost $40 and I also didn't fancy cleaning that coating off every key.

I've got to say that I am surprised at how the feel of the keyboard also changed with new keys. I like the new feel, though it will take some time to get used to. They also seem a little more noisy than before and I may go get me some rubber o-rings.

With MX Reds? Wow you must bottom out HARD lmao

Tai-Hao apparently revised their approach to the Anti-Biosis coating recently. They're now applying a really thin layer that won't attract so much grime and they even do drops from time to time (of Miami only, sadly) without it. I agree though. My TH Miami came with a coating and I had to scrub it off with a toothbrush...a real workout! I have a TH Dolch copy set (ABS) and I liked it less than the Miami (PBT).

Yeah. At the time of buying, I was looking for MX Browns.

I initially got a Zalman ($30 i think) with Kaith's browns, but some of the switches were broken! I went back to the shop to exchange it for something else, but the one I wanted wasn't in stock.
They had a single Quickfire XT that wasn't even advertised for sale, I think it was a sample from the manufacturer or something, but they offered to exchange the crapo Zalman to Quickfire for an additional $10.

It was a deal that I couldn't resist. $40 for a really nice KB. The only caveat, it came with MX-Reds. I use my computer a lot more for work than gaming, so it has taken a lot of getting used to. The switches are so sensitive, I have to be pretty precise when typing. It beat the hell out of the old Logitech rubber dome I had and now I'm used to it, I'd never go back to a non-mechanical.

Me too, went for reds instead ... they made me adjust my typing, now I'm typing much more lightly and get to bottom them out only when angry. Also, weirdly, the way reds conditioned me to type also makes my membrane keyboard at work feel less mushy.

K70's a nice one. When I get tired of my Roccat and the burned out LEDs, I'll probably swap back to that one :) it's on my server right now :)

I used to long for a K65 because of the distinctive Corsair style. Not that it's any less desirable, but there are a few things that have kept me away. For one, the 1u winkey and menu as well as proprietary spacebar is a pain, as virtually no keyset will accommodate it. The aluminum plate is nice, but most if not all mass produced boards use a stainless or aluminum plate nowadays, (and Corsair's is just an extended version) and the rest of the board is still plastic.

I still don't understand why companies like corsair and TT stick to a senseless nonstandard layout. The only acceptable bottom rows in a full keyboard is 1.25-1.25-1.25 (standard) or 1.5-1-1.5 (retro winkeyless). It would save keyset enthusiasts so much trouble, simplify things for the manufacturer and make the K70 a perfect product. Love the media controls.

That's true, I'm just not sure I'm up for the amount of tedium involved in de- and re-soldering all those lines heheh. It started dropping LEDs within about 3 months, and I'm down 23 at least, without lighting the entire keyboard to check.

How bad was the process? How long did it take you? And what did you swap to from Blue?
