Milky top gat yellows are a classic. Cheap! Feel great! Smooth! Sound nice! It's everything you want Inna switch. Add some 205g0 and deskyfilms and you have a killer linear that's good I'm pretty much any board.
Didn’t realize this switch was only appropriate for PCB mounting, not plate mounting, so it won’t really work in my Keychron C2 hot-swappable board without blocking the backlight. Doesn’t seem to be a way to return them either. But, prices were good, shipping was fast, and I’d buy from Divinikey again.
These were my first introduction to linear switches. I used them for a week or two unlubed and they were pretty smooth with some switches scratchier than others. Having lubed (krytox 205 g0) and filmed them I can say that they are now really smooth and sound way thockier. For the price they cant be beat. ~25 dollars to cover a 60% board is crazy value.
10/10 on the thock scale, would recommend
the packaging was great and the switches were in a really nice bag
