ABS or PBT? PBT while can last longer and have a better feel and quality over ABS, it costs a lot more. May cost as much as your tecware or even more.
It's true 7 years ago. Nowadays good quality abs keycap set cost more than pbt.

First few years when mech key first gain attention, ppl prefer pbt over abs.

Nowadays ppl are crazy about abs keycaps.

Looking for an affordable keyboard for office use, non-gaming. Any recommendations?
Prefer wireless, with TKL layout.

Saw someone mentioned Anne Pro, looked good but not sure if I can get used to 60%...
IKBC has a BT 87keys one. Also have 106keys version .
Either that or FILCO convertible 2 BT.

I would say the main draw of CTRL keyboard is the ability to hotswap switches and QMK firmware. RGB as well I guess.

If you don't use those 2 main features, the price premium is not really worth it.
I have a CTRL keyboard that hasn't been opened as I haven't decided what switches to use with it yet.
hearing alot of ppl talking about qmk..wth is that . the main draw for the keyboard is that its aesthetically stunnig

Qmk lets you customise macro keys or add functional layers etc.
E.g. you can change fn+W to be a up arrow key

It does look good but I prefer dark

anyone heard about this massdrop CTRL keyboard? seems super cool and neat. got anyone in singapore here using it give some review?

Or you can consider another alternative for CTRL keyboard.


Get Gemini Dusk from Input Club instead of CTRL. It has everything CTRL has.
https://kono.store/products/gemini-dusk


- Dual USB-C pass through
- Magnetic angle bars
- RGB leds
- hot-swap switches
- Metal casing ( well, Massdrop use aluminum case, which is more ex)


The diff is it uses Input Clubs software , rather than QMK.


Massdrop and Input Club used to be very close. They even collaborated through numerous keyboard, and in creating Halo/Hako switch. Because of that Halo/Hako switch, they fought each other. In fact, Massdrop's CTRL is based off open source design of Input Club's K Type.

I speak that language btw lolz.
I bought the blue ocean spacebar so could match with this wrist rest from another groupbuy

Hope it will match.








Btw, there is someone selling this keycap for super high price. I bought the that keycap for $30 only o.O confused
I believe he got it from the same maker as me.


https://sg.carousell.com/p/jelly-key...ef_sId=3075735

I think some of the best artisan keycap groups are from Vietnam. I believe there are about 7 or 8 viet aritsan groups , some of them selling on Massdrop also.
