Title says it all, but make sure you lube them (I prefer krytox 205g0).
These switches are amazing for the price. With a little bit of lube, they can sound and feel like premium switches. Amazing weighted springs btw. Surprisingly, these let in very little light, even less than smokey housing switches. So I wouldn't recommend if you love RGB.
I live in California, and the switches arrived very quickly. I only had about 3 switches with bent pins, and I was able to bend the pins back with little to no effort; the rest of the switches were flawless. Fair warning, the bottom casing of these switches let through very little light (maybe 10-20% light is shining through), if you are in to LED's or RGB. Luckily, I am not, and I use keycaps that do not shine through. I have lubed these switches with Krytox 205g0, and bag-lubed the springs with super lube (iso 100). I put the switches into a cheap Keychron C1 keyboard, and they sound, and feel, amazing. The amount of force required to press a key is also very enjoyable. The yellow's are a very very nice middle ground, compared to red's that go down too easily, and blacks that require a ltitle bit too much force. The yellow's are just right =)
It was great and the packaging was awesome!
The Gateron Milky top Yellow is a great switch. The feel and sound are so good just stock can't wait for the switches to be restocked really want to lube these switches. :)
