NEWS: Refreshed Pudding Keycaps by HyperX
This keycap re-design seems to be a result of new double-shot molding techniques. Stencil-like fonts are replaced by a closed font, and long-key symbols are replaced by actual words (e.g. CAPS, ENTER, etc.) In addition, more translucent material is used for the LEDs to shine through; we reckon the results should be very pleasing to the eye.
These pudding keycaps fit all HyperX mechanical keyboards, as well as other brands using Cherry MX cross-type switch connectors. As before, these pudding keycaps by HyperX are resistant to oil absorption, are available in black or white keys and come with a limited two year warranty.
