Budget Tactile King
Great tactile feel for the price. Has the rounded D profile.
Better than Baby Kangaroos
This was part of my first purchase from DK and I am very happy w/ my buy. The switches arrived in excellent condition, and installed w/ no additional adjustments. The typing experience is great, including the sound - very tactile. Modded my existing keyboard using these switches for that beautiful marbly sound (after some taping and padding). The switches arrived literally overnight, due to proximity and took even lesser time to install. I find I prefer these, paired w/ the Tecsee Corals, over my other keyboard w/ Baby Kangaroo switches. Highly recommended and will be buying from again.
I don’t like them but they’re good if you know what you’re getting.
These have the nice tactile bump you’re looking for in a “panda” switch but with an even shorter travel distance which I think is what I don’t like about them and is throwing me off. I didn’t hear the annoying ping that’s present in a lot of other panda clones. Something about the housing makes them look very cheap, like it’s dollar store trinket plastic, idk, but this doesn’t actually matter in the end. They get 5 stars because of the price and how close they are to the other much more expensive panda clones
Fantastic Budget Panda
Really happy with the quality of these switches for the price. I simply lubed with Tribosys 3203 (while being careful to avoid the legs for tactility) and they turned out nearly perfect. Very similar sound and feel to the Holy and Glorious Pandas that I compared them against. My SO actually prefers these over Glorious, though I'm undecided. At $0.43/switch however, they're hard to deny. If you want the Panda experience on a budget then these will absolutely deliver. Don't hesitate.
Better than expected for the price
I was really happy with the purchase, at first I wasn't sure which tactile switches to get seeing there were both more affordable options and higher end, more expensive, ones. But in the end I went for the purple pandas and I couldn't be happier. Bought them for my first build ever and was specially surprised with quality and quality control, different from many switches that I see around, over the 108 that I got there were none bent pins and I had no issue lubing nor had any dead switches when I plugged the board. For me they seem to have a great balance between tactility and smoothness, super glad with the feel and sound I got from them. Overall super glad with the choice, would buy again.
