Buying from you guys again
Package came quick and was nicely wrapped. I was missing 2 switches out of 70 but it doesn’t really matter to me.
these sound really good stock, but there is some wobble. but some lubing and some film will do the job. these remind me a lot of creams because there is a little bit of a scratch and the bottom out feels really good. there more of a higher pitch sound than the creams. super happy with this switch
I've gone through a lot of switches in my short time within this hobby. But man. These may be one of my favorite linears. The sound is so consistent. I don't even have them on a fancy board. For this price you really can't go wrong. I think they are absolutely worth trying especially considering that "premium" alternatives may cost 3x as much but still not feel or sound as nice as these do.
Start with Cherry, End with Cherry
As enthusiasts, we start to stray away from Cherry MX Switches because they're "basic". There are many other interesting and better alternatives like switches manufactured by the likes of Tecsee, Gateron, and JWK. These are scratchy, just a bit smoother than the notoriously scratchy NK Creams. The springs on these are crunchy and pingy, something that we all aim to get rid of. These are scratchy and have spring ping, so why get these at all? Sound. These Cherry MX Black Hyperglides have a very full-sounding clack both at the bottom out and the upstroke. Which I find very satisfying. If you are not too bothered by scratchiness, lubing, and filming these are good enough. That said, I do recommend to those that get these switches to devote a significant amount of time to break these in to get maximum smoothness. PS. It is pretty unavoidable to not get bent pins. Luckily out of the 100 I ordered there were only 4 or so with slightly bent pins, and one with a pin somewhat twisted (?) Fast shipping as always.
Package was purchased on a Saturday and delivered by Thursday the following week. The switches all came in nice packaging and like the reviews below have said, hyperglide blacks are very CONSISTENT. Once broken in and lubed, these switches feel wonderful and sound wonderful. Would buy again. 70 switches for $$27.30 before tax and shipping is a steal.
