Great Linear Budget Option From KTT For RGB Lighting
TLDR: These are KTT Mints that allow for better RGB. E.g. A very good budget switch. So KTT also makes the Mints and the Sea Salt Lemons which are also in the same price. According to the specs on Divinikey, they are the same material composition for stem and housings, only this time the spring is 55g instead of 53g. This difference is pretty negligible in real usage. The spring is also standard instead of progressive, so more comparable to the Mint than the Sea Salt Lemon. So like the Mints, these have the same advantages over other budget options: - Tight Housings - Takes to lube very well However, its important to note that I'm seeing that these housings are a tad bit looser than the Mints. Granted, if you try to budge the switch housing a bit with your hands, the jiggle is minimal and for some switches requires some force to notice. The loose ones are still comparatively tight to other switches price range, I would put them on par with standard Durock Linear switches, the L7s and L2s. So unlike the Mints which required no Films, I'd recommend films for these. Sound wise, I'm noticing that these are bit more clackier than the Mints and a bit more high pitched, perhaps because of the top housing. But the sound is still quite pleasant. And of course, since the bottom housing is milky, and the top is clear, RGB shines through much better than Mints or Sea Salt Lemons. If you missed the Mints this time around, these are a fine substitute.
