TX-CP with Maxkeys Ashen R1

I traded my Modern Beige Purple Hangul PBT for a set of Maxkeys Ashen R1. I wanted to see what the fuss was about regarding maxkeys aside from of course the price and that it comes fully sculptured 1-1-2-3-4-3.

I wanted this set because it matches the color scheme of my TX-CP and because of this I might take a look at other keysets using this color scheme (SA Honeywell maybe?)

I can confirm that the complaints people had on reddit and other mechanical keyboard forums are correct. Beforehand I know about the “Back Space” “SHIF T” issues they had and I can live with that but what bothers me are the following:

  • Inconsistent Legends
  • Non-centered legends

Those are the things that bothers me the most.. I mean this set the whole number row is not centered and the “1 !” key is bolder than the other keys.

They also feel more hollow compared to Signature Platics keys (I know since I owned SA keycaps until now)

Well for the price basically you get what you pay for
