Japanese Keycaps

There are many advantages to using Japanese keycaps. For instance, they are often sold as a complete set of keycaps. And this means that you get the cap in its entirety, along with the instructions on how to install it on your keyboard.

This is a huge advantage over simply buying the cap separately from its corresponding keyboard, which can waste a lot of time trying to figure out which part goes where. The other great advantage of these sets is that they are usually made out of high-quality, durable materials such as ABS or PVC. Both of these materials are known for their durability, and because they are nearly indestructible in normal usage (meaning that they’ll last for a long time) they will make any keyboard look brand new.

On the other hand, there are some disadvantages. One of these disadvantages is that you have to be very familiar with the mechanism that keeps these caps in place. For instance, pressing on the Caps lock button on some models can sometimes come away with a chime noise, and this is simply due to the mechanism that keeps the caps pressed down. There is also the issue of having to use different keycaps for different languages, which can make it more complicated for you to use the keyboard. This is one of the disadvantages of the whole set in particular, but it’s something that you might consider looking into if you plan on using several different Japanese keycaps.

As you can see, there are both advantages and disadvantages of using Japanese keycaps. You can often purchase them as a complete set, which will save you a lot of time, but at the same time they aren’t cheap. If you’re not comfortable with the whole arrangement of having to use different keycaps for each language then it might be worth looking into different options that allow you to personalize your keyboard by changing the actual keycaps themselves. In the end, however, it all boils down to preference and what works best for you. Whichever route you take, it’s sure to be a worthwhile decision!
