Well, I did send a message just shortly after 7bit's last update, on the 5th. But I guess posting that update might have been the very last thing he did before leaving for the weekend. Oh well. The waiting game continues, I guess. :(

So that's where my white TAB key went! ;)

I don't thinkt there's a protocol in place for that scenario. I guess send a list of the extra keys to 7bit, and let him figure it out?

Got my order a few minutes before we walked out the door for vacation, so I didn't get to check it out. Pretty stoked to finally have (hopefully) everything on hand now!

I think that's a flow mark rather than a scratch. It happens when plastic has started to cool down before filling out the entire mold, so it doesn't 'weld' together seamlessly.

SP had the same problem with their recent run of Nuclear Data, but it affected all the alphas, not just ISO Return. I don't know if their molds are getting worn out, they got a bad batch of plastic from their supplier, or they are just rushing to get keycaps out the door, but I think they need to figure this out quickly before it affects any other sets.

im very pleased with the quality but i've nothing else to compare with.

only thing i've noticed is that i'm unsure if my 'S' is the wrong way up! it could be the typeface, i won't grumble though! they're so awesome.

lukenukem: You installed it with the sprue facing "up," which should be correct. I did the same thing, because I don't want to see that nasty sprue.
This officially marks the LAST time I will be buying any SP products. The QA on these is even worse than it was on the DangerZone caps. Lots of sprues, scratches, sworls, and bubbles (I guess that's the best way to describe it - it's a very thin film of plastic on the very outside layer that easily scratches away, but still leaves a visible outline) - AND several of my DVORAK keys are mounted crooked on the stem.
-_- 3 years of waiting for.. this? Never again. GMK from here on out. (Not that I need any more keysets, if I'm honest)
All of that said, they do look very nice (the ones that are straight on the stem, and not scuffed or bubbled), the colors are great, the legends are nice and crisp (and straight).

edit: and I just noticed something odd about some of these "blanks" I got with my ErgoDox kit. It appears they were cast as double-shot caps? I can clearly see the word "CONTROL" imprinted on one (pics to follow) and "TAB" on another - others are less clear, but obviously lettering of some description. It's freakin' bizarre.

Here are some pics, as promised.

My Dvorak F key is twisted (can verify the stem/switch are straight, as this does not look twisted on any other capset)

Not sure what this says, but it's clearly not a blank cap.
ghostTAB.jpg
Here you can see two keys with ghosted text - one is clearly TAB, but I can't read the other one well.
ghostCONTROL.jpg
This is the clearest ghost text. It's almost like they double-shot it with the same color.
bubble2.jpg
Here are a couple shots of the "bubble" I mentioned earlier - this is typical of this issue. (I had these on my DangerZone caps, too)

It's not a huge deal on a R3 blank key, because you can turn it such that you don't see it all the time, but it's still frustrating.

Nice boards. You need to post this on 'The Cappening' thread.

Not sure if this is the best place to ask (feel free to point me elsewhere), but I just got my caps this week and realized that I forgot to order a grey vertical bar/backslash key. It shows up like this on the leftovers page: HONEYB/VERTBSL150/GREY.

I know it's available in the leftovers list, but I'd rather buy it off someone else if it means I'll get it quicker and not have 7bit sending a single cap out. If anyone has a spare, it'd be very much appreciated!
