Soft bottom out, standard top out tactile
These have a medium, P-shaped tactile bump, and come with a long spring like the Gold Pink does except this is a 2-stage one. While 2-stage springs are supposed to offer a stronger upstroke and firmer downpress I don't have any other 2-stage springs to compare them to and honestly they feel like any other switch to me. The most interesting thing about these switches to me is the dampened bottom out and standard top out sounds. I think it's a nice compromise for those who want something in between a standard and a silent switch. Sometimes I'll put a silent switch in my spacebar and can definitely see myself using one of these instead.
These switches are a hidden gem. Practically no pre-travel and not too light nor too heavy. They have a strange poppy kind of feel and are quite pleasant to type on. It has a soft quiet bottom out but a satisfying thock on the rebound. I compared them side by side with Zealios 67g and Boba U4t 62g and found that I enjoyed typing on these TTC Bluish Whites much more. I highly recommend these strange but awesome switches to anybody looking for something a little different.
Very Unconventional, but in a Good Way
To begin, yes these switches only have dampening on the downstroke so if you were looking for a fairly cheap silent tactile, this might not be the switch for you. I'm typing this review on a Portico with TTC Bluish White that have been lubed with Tribosys 3203. The tactility on these switches are much more than a MX Brown or MX clear but less than a T1 or Zealio. They're of decent smoothness out of the box and have factory lube, which is inconsistent. Thankfully you are able to lube right over the factory lube without a hitch. Now onto the strange stuff. This switch only has dampening on the down stroke, meaning that you still get the housing clack from the upstroke. How does this affect typing? Well, it makes the switch feel like Topre in that there is that softer and somewhat thockier downstroke sound that is followed by a higher pitched clack. Only this time we don't have the rattle that comes with Topre type keycaps. And then if you couple this with a fairly reasonable tactile bump, you get something that can closely resemble Topre in mechanical form. As a fan of Topre, I consider this a win. I would recommend this switch for people who really want to try something strange in a world of round tactile bumps
An excellent tactile switch for the price
I tested these switches out on a Keychron K8 plastic version. These switches have a very nice, poppy tactile feel to them without any pre-travel. I compared these to some Boba U4 and U4ts, and I have to say, I find them almost as good. Factor in the price, and I find them a much better value than the U4Ts. The only factor which might give some buyers a pause, IMO, is the sound signature. I'm personally not too bothered by them, but their downstroke is a pretty muted sound, while the upstroke is a noticeable clack. Definitely a lot less silent than the U4s, and a less typical sound than the U4Ts. If that's something you care about, you might want to get a small pack to test these switches, else they're excellent!
Weird in a good way ...
This is definitely a weird switch to type but not in a bad way. It has a very sharp tactile bump at the top so there is no pre-travel. The best way to describe it is that it feels like a membrane keyboard, but without the mushy feeling and a snappier actuation. They are very quiet compared to other tactile switches that I have tried. With headphones on and listening to music, I can barely hear them compared to the Zealio V2's that I was previously using. There are definitely much more enjoyable to type on then the Zealio switches I previously had. I would recommend the TTC Bluish White to people who are focused on typing experience and not on acoustics. Unless you like the sound of a semi-muted tactile.
