EnjoyPBT, I know some have said that IMSTOs are superior and these caps overall have QC issues, but I own several of their products and they are all top-notch. These are aesthetically wonderful, but more importantly an accessible and affordable alternative to OG Cherry Dyesubs with a great many options to choose from. The only product they make I can't really say is anything special are the lasered CMYW kits.

Second vote is for Granite and there is not much to say here. I don't have numbers or anything but I would wager it easily had to be the most popular keyset of 2016. Simple, aesthetically pleasing, and coverage for pretty much any layout you can think of.

There's a link to mechkb.com (Realforce/HHKB stock keycaps img) that's triggering my malwarebytes. Just FYI.

Likely a false positive, but I switched it to make your Malwarebytes feel better.
