Today we’re looking at some keycaps made by Drevo, the makers of many rather good mechanical keyboards. Here’s what you need to know!
Materials: These keycaps are made from PBT, a kind of plastic. PBT is generally considered to be a more premium alternative to the most common keycap material, ABS. PBT is preferred by some because it offers a slightly rougher finish and better durability. However, like many elements of the world of mechanical keyboards, this is a matter of personal preference as well. The keycaps are 1.5mm thick.
Legends: The legends are laser etched on the front of each keycap. This removes the possibility of [...]
The Tyrfing V2 is an elegant tenkeyless keyboard, with plate-mounted Cherry MX-style mechanical switches produced by Outemu floating above a black metal base. You have the option for Brown, Blue, Red or Black switches, which are tactile, clicky, soft linear and linear, respectively.
Each switch is topped by an ABS keycap, with lasered legends that allow the RGB backlighting beneath to shine through. Unlike most other mechanical keyboards, Drevo have selected a stylish capitalised typeface to label their keycaps, and have opted to spell out most keys (e.g. the Windows key is WIN, not a Windows symbol). This produces a consistent and stylish [...]

The Magic Keyboard is legendary amongst Apple fans — it’s light, stylish and even provides a decent typing experience, courtesy of some MacBook-style scissor switches. Today, I’m looking at a prospective replacement for the Magic Keyboard, a new mechanical keyboard from the experts at Drevo called the Joyeuse.
This keyboard uses Cherry ML-style low profile mechanical switches, allowing it to maintain incredibly thin dimensions while still including plenty of tactile feedback and a bunch of LEDs too. Let’s put it to the test, and find out if it’s time to retire the Magic Keyboard!Design

Speedlink impressed us with their mechanical Ultor keyboard, so how does their Ludicium budget rubber dome fare in comparison?
