A couple of days ago I posted a picture on facebook of a super cheap DoubleShot PBT Custom Keycaps that I got from shopee for just around 392 pesos, and Today, we are going to take a closer look on it and install it on my Gigaware K28 Mechanical Keyboard.
MY EARLY BREAKDOWN
Pros: Super cheap, Decent quality, Compatible with backlit keyboards
Compatibility: 104 key-caps for Cherry MX mechanical keyboard

Let’s start with the font, the font used on this custom keycaps are actually decent, it’s not over the top gamery looking fonts and the quality of the details is acceptable and consistent across the board.
In terms of construction and the quality of the keys, I was able to verify that this is indeed double shot PBT plastic. It’s hard and it has a nice texture on it that is very nice to the touch. It has some imperfections at the back, especially on the edges but it’s barely visible in front
With regards to compatibility, this set of keycaps comprises 104 keys that are compatible with any keyboard that uses Cherry MX stems like Kailh, Gateron, Outemu or even the Content blue switch on the Gigaware K28 Mechanical Keyboard.
PBT VS ABS
This DoubleShot PBT Custom keycap is definitely an upgrade to the ABS keycap that’s on my Gigaware K28. PBT is harder, more durable and has a nice texture on it, it also doesn’t shine over time compared to the ABS plastic which loses texture as time goes by. You will really feel the difference once you’ve had it on your hand side by side.
Will I Recommend This? Yes!
If you have the patience to wait for the shipping and you’re willing to gamble with regards to the actual color you’re going to get, then for the price of just 392 pesos, I think this is a good deal. I’ll probably order a couple more colors such as grey and white for my other keyboards.
