These are fantastic switches. I looked into various silent switches and I’m so glad I went with these. They feel great right out of the package annd are quite a bit cheaper than all of their competitors.
Very interesting and smooth
Super smooth factory lube job. I could not have done better. They have a soft bottom out, but not squishy. Super quiet. Cons: They have almost zero pre-travel before they actuate. Takes a little bit to get used to.
Issues with Cherry Profile keycaps
asdf alpha line tends to still clack when used with cherry profile keycaps. issue goes away with OEM profile keycaps. Be aware of this.

Silent is an understatement!
I work all day coding and writing, so I wanted quieter switches to be friendly to my ears. Ordered these to add to a new keyboard I built. They're extremely comfortable to type with, feel great, and won't tire your fingers out after hours and hours of typing. Also ... they are crazy silent!! I had watched review videos of people typing with these and recording the sound with fancy microphones that, as I've learned, up-play the sound. When using these in real life, I can barely hear each keystroke. Half the time, I forget I'm even typing!! So buyer beware, these are really really silent. But I love them!
