Gateron Yellow Switches are linear switches with a unique sound. It accomplishes this by utilizing a Gateron Milky Yellow top housing in combination with a black bottom housing. Often referred to as Gat Yellow, KS-3 Switches, Milk Yellow, or Gateron yellow, these switches are the go-to for a reliable linear switch on a budget.

BE WARNED. Did NOT in fact contain milk!
Great switches however. I bought a 10 pack to fiddle around with and take apart with my kids while ordering supplies to lube and film my Glorious Panda’s. What we discovered was a nice, well built switch, clean and linear feeling even dry. Not too scratchy. I’ll likely be ordering 10 packs to have a full set on hand, and probably some other inexpensive switches to try. I’m thoroughly impressed with the packaging as well. Clean and organized. Great job.
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 =)
Great products, long shipping
I like the fair pricing but it's been 10 days and package still hasn't gotten here.
The switches are good but too many came not working
8-9 switches out of 70 were unusable with bended connectors or for other reasons, so I couldn't replace all the keys.
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. :)
