I had a great time sorting through the grab bag! Expect lots of copies and the diversity to vary greatly! There will be the odd stuff that is not usable as-is, but make for a great project.
You'll get an assortment of keys, some of which will be unusable, and very likely, you will not get a 'complete' set of any profile (meaning, even mixing and matching different colors, you likely won't be able to populate 60-100% layout keyboard with the corresponding legends.
At this price, unless you just like to gamble, it is more worth it to just buy a complete set either from here or from Drop.
Remember, you have to find space to store this bucket of mostly unusable keycaps.
At $45 + $10-$20 shipping, this is very much - not worth it.
I can't see giving this anything less than 5 stars, seriously it's a grab bag, you're rolling the dice on what you're going to get. I didn't get anything epic, not a full set of alphas but I got enough SA keycaps to create a unique keyboard that I can't wait to finish and start showing off. Yea there were broken, and undershot keys or ones where the second shot bled through, and I got some keys with stems that I can't use but I did also get some neat unique keys. I'm a huge fan of the aerospace ones.
For the price and the sheer number of keys, I'd buy it again. Since I'm not into wasting material maybe the ones I can't use or have no interest in I'll make some ABS printer filament out of.
I ordered this set hoping to put together a set of keys, but out of all the keys I was going to use, my set was missing a Z, D, and Y, for a complete set of alpha keys. I still have to go through all the flat keys, I am pretty sure that I can make a set out of those, but that is not what I was looking for.
It was fun trying it once, but I most likely will never do it again.

Don't take our word for it
This is hands down the best set of keycaps I've purchased after getting two more spherical PBT keysets before it from sketchy sellers on Amazon and eBay. The quality is excellent, there is no sign of wear on the engraving after several weeks, etc.
I have purchased both the alpha and novelties + a few single keycaps and I'm super pleased with the design. If you are considering to get this, I highly recommend that you go ahead with the purchase!
I got this set for my first TKL keyboard and it looks great, even better in person than I anticipated.
I've ordered many keycaps from this site, and customer service has been awesome whenever I have contacted them with questions about available options.
