当ページのリンクには広告が含まれています。

Cerakey was the pioneer of the different material keycap.

In Japan, the “World’s First! Ceramics Keycap” as a “Ceramics Keycap”, and it is now available through crowdfunding.

However, it is also true that the first version (V1) had problems with the stem, and some keycaps were too hard to fit or too loose to come off, resulting in product quality issues.

In this regard, an interview with Cerakey revealed that.

In this issue, we will review the appeal of the Cerakey v2, which has a new stem.

Products were provided by Cerakey. This site has a business partnership with Cerakey through performance-based advertising, and GreenEchoes Studio, the business operator of this site, may receive a profit if a contract is concluded through this site.

What are the features and attractions of Cerakey V2?

As mentioned at the beginning of this article, everything currently available at Cerakey is the V2 version, and the poor fitting due to stem molding errors has been eliminated by changing to a plastic stem.

The following are the six features and attractions that I have found in Cerakey.

Cerakeyの魅力
  1. Unique keystroke sound
  2. Beautiful glossy looks
  3. Wide variety of coloring
  4. There is a homing key.
  5. Stability when typing due to the weight
  6. Easy-to-purchase pricing that is the same as plastic keycaps

Unique keystroke sound

The most appealing feature of Cerakey is its excellent keystroke sound.

Let’s compare keystroke sounds in a typing movie using the same keyswitch but with only different keycaps.

SingleShot PBT
DoubleShot PBT
Ceramic

As you can hear by comparing them, Cerakey has an attractive hard hitting sound.

The tight, bass-accented keystroke sound is like the sound of rain.

Many people are attracted to this keystroke sound and purchase the product.

Beautiful glossy looks

When we mention Cerakey, many people are surely first struck by the beauty of its luster.

Because the material itself is shiny, unlike resin keycaps, ceramic is said to be very unlikely to wear out and become shiny with use.

Recently, there are shiny keycaps made of ABS, but Cerakey is still the standout when it comes to glossiness.

Just looking at it is enchanting.

Wide variety of coloring

Cerakey is available in 11 colors at the time of writing.

Yellow” will be added here, although it is not shown in the photo.

It looks like candy.

All colors transmit LED lights, so you will also discover a more attractive side.

There is a homing key.

DSC 9423

Cerakey has a new keycap with homing available starting April 30, 2024.

It has been considered extremely difficult to create homing points for non-resin keycaps due to the difficulty of molding and processing, but Cerakey has succeeded in creating such a keycap.

This is a very significant advantage among keycaps made of different materials.

Kawamura top RKawamura

Note that homing keys are sold separately.

Stability when typing due to the weight

Compared to regular plastic keycaps, Cerakey’s individual keytops are much heavier.

A 6.25u space bar, for example, weighs 32g.

Considering that a normal space bar weighs about 6g, you can see how heavy Cerakey is.

This weight is directly related to “stability when typing.

The heavier weight will make it more resistant to misalignment forces and provide more stable typing.

Easy-to-purchase pricing that is the same as plastic keycaps

Keycaps made of different materials tend to be expensive.

As for certain metal keycaps, they are in a rather “high-end” category, with a full key set costing $300.00.

On the other hand, as for Cerakey, a full set can be purchased starting at $126.00.

In addition, we also offer “bulk sales” of alpha keys only, mod keys only, etc., so you can buy only what you need at a lower price.

Precautions before purchasing Cerakey

Cerakeyを購入する前の注意点
  1. Purchase only from the home site
  2. No 1.5u size keycaps.
  3. Fingerprints adhere easily
  4. Product inventory is not stable.

Purchase only from the home site

Cerakey has no distributor in Japan.

Therefore, to purchase the product, you must buy it from the official online store in your home country.

Since the official website is written entirely in English, many people may be reluctant to purchase the product.

Kawamura top RKawamura

In my experience, I think that many people give up just because it is written in English.

However, modern Internet browsers are equipped with a “translation” function, so it is unlikely that you will not be able to understand the content.

Please see below for the procedure for purchasing from overseas shopping sites.

  • Many of the sites listed on this site are outside of Japan, and all of them are in English.
  • If you are unfamiliar with overseas shopping, you may have some resistance to English-language sites, but rest assured that all of the operators are reliable and directly affiliated with our business.
Kawamura top RKawamura

We have business transactions in English with our counterparts and have a business alliance with GreenEchoes Studio, the operating entity of GreenKeys.

  • If you are not sure in English, use your browser’s Japanese translation function.
  • PayPal and credit card payment are available for payment. Even if you pay by credit card, the risk of information leakage is low as long as you do not apply for the service over public airwaves, since the payment is protected by encrypted communication.
  • All information regarding shipping address and name should be written in English.
  • Here is a website that converts Japanese addresses to English addresses ▷▷.
  • Coupon codes can be entered on the cart screen.

No 1.5u size keycaps.

Unfortunately, Cerakey does not have 1.5u size keycaps.

Kawamura top RKawamura

I have inquired, but it seems that there is no mold itself to create it in the first place.

Therefore, if you want to use 1.5u size keycaps, you must substitute 1.25u size keycaps.

Fingerprints adhere easily

20240526 062656 scaled

Cerakey is prone to fingerprints and must be cleaned after each use.

The recommended care method is to wipe with a soft microfiber cloth or wipe with a Kimwipe for easy cleanup.

Product inventory is not stable.

Cerakey has become so popular around the world that production is not keeping up with demand.

As a result, some color is always out of stock, and all colors are rarely available in the lineup.

Kawamura top RKawamura

Especially for the popular color Yellow, we are waiting for its restocking.

Therefore, if you do not purchase them when they are available, they may sell out quickly.

Buy as soon as you are ready to buy.

Green Keys is also constantly bringing you information on product arrivals.

summary

These are just a few of the reviews we have provided on Cerakey.

If you have only ever used plastic keycaps, this product is so shocking that it will probably change the way you think about keycaps.

Why not start with the Alpha Key set?

You will surely be charmed by its keystroke feel.
