You can go your gaming

Greasy and worn buttons of your gaming keyboard go to your nerves? Meinmmo author Benedikt Schlotmann has now bought new keycaps. He explains why he does not regret the purchase and why he can recommend you.

The problem knows almost everyone: You can go on your favorite keyboard and sometime the known problems begin: The buttons will be illegible, the key caps get a greasy and shabby look and do not feel good anymore.

The reason for this is in the production of the key caps, because many manufacturers rely on ABS key caps. The use of the wear and tears are no longer overlooked at some point.

A significantly better experience promise PBT key caps here. They are rougher and more resistant and do not use so much. An acquaintance had mixed how great they were and for that reason I wanted to test them. A better tip feeling and no greasy buttons more? I wanted to try that!

I ve proceeded: In my search for good key caps, I also reviewed Multiple independent online providers next to Amazon. PBT keycaps are not uncommon anymore and you will get them with various providers.

But in the search I noticed that it is almost impossible to find PBT key caps with German Layout (ISO DE). While manufacturers such as Hyperx or Razer offer PBT caps for their keyboards, but only for the English layout.

For these key caps I decided: In the end I decided for a key capset of a favorable provider. On my first set PBT key caps I did not want to spend as much money as for a complete keyboard.

I have received the compromise that I get the buttons only with English layout. This is not that important for the tip feeling. Since I also blindly tap, the caption of the keys plays a subordinate role for me.

The keyboard feels really good again

These are the advantages: The keys feel rougher when tapping and thus significantly more likely. This is above all the fact that I do not feel anymore, to constantly tap in the fat movie of my own fingers. I feel clearly more precisely than with the old ABS key caps.

The keys feel more stable and are more durable. In addition, my buttons no longer look like I have been tapping for months, because the unsightly Abnutz effect can not be seen at PBT key caps.

Also in practice this is noticeable. Because the keys have a decent grip. Zoke me a few round apex legend or play two matches Overwatch, then I realize the difference to my old ABS keys immediately.

As long as the keyboard sets on mechanical switches, the key caps fit pretty much on each keyboard. I ve made the test with various keyboards: on a cheap China keyboard, the key caps work as well as on the Roccat Pyro or Fnatic Streak.

The advantage is also that a pair of key variants are included, about two differently large entering or shift keys. This is mainly practical because not with each keyboard the special keys are the same size.

These are the disadvantages: The most important drawback first: You do not get the buttons in the German layout. There are also those, but then are really expensive. If you want to have German key caps in any case, then you probably have to be patient.

It challenges some effort and something to put the PBT key caps on the switches. This is likely to like that among you who do not want to spend a power to swap the key caps.

In addition, the key caps sit pretty firmly onto the switches. If you suddenly consider the decision differently, then there is at least the risk that you break the switches. Here I have the experience that the key caps will be soft after several weeks of use and then lose weight. I had to find out that myself and is in no manual.

For whom are the key caps recommended? Your are annoyed by worn and greasy key caps and wishes you grip and better workmanship? Then you definitely look at these PBT key caps if you do not shy the English layout. Pudding buttons with German layout have since been at the top of my wish list of things I wish in the hardware area.

The difference is clearly noticeable and I like personally very much. PBT key caps feel significantly better than ABS key caps and that writes someone who uses his keyboard for more than 8 hours every day and writes, playing, playing, or surfing the internet.

Above all, it is unusual if you return to ABS buttons from PBT key caps. Suddenly I have to tap back on greasy, worn buttons and no longer have the grip under the fingers, as I know him from the better keys.
