POM Plate for NovelKeys NK87
Made from polyoxymethylene (POM), these replacement plates are used to modify the sound and feel of your keyboard
1.5 - 1.6mm thick
Has underside notches to ensure switch latch engagement
Please note that due to the manufacturing process, POM does not have a protective film applied. Because of this POM almost always contains surface imperfections such as light scratches. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to prevent this; however, the integrity of the plate is not affected at all.
Some Manufacturers also include batch numbers in POM sheets on one side. When we create our plates, we ensure that all batch lettering will be facing down on the finished product.
Overall, it's a good plate that gives a quieter sound than the ALU plate that I've been using. However, after using it for a couple of weeks, I switched back to the original ALU. Reason? The "Enter" key cut-out is missing the upper notches. The plate is actually preventing the stabilizer from returning to its original position. As such, the "Enter" key always look half-pressed. I'll try to fix the missing upper notch myself when I have more time for that.
Hence the reason for the 4-star.
Aluminum plate sounded hollow and pitchy. POM plate made all the difference.
