Great switches

Even unlubed the action is smooth, they're quiet but with a nice pop-y thock on release (abs keycaps), short travel distance and the light diffusion on the switch housing makes per key RGB really smooth looking

Great tactile switches! They feel very nice, though they are slightly scratchy so I would advise lubing them

They’re nice … with some work

These switches are nice but didn’t come in the best shape. Many of the pins were bent and needed to be straightened.

Also they were scratchy and not well prelubed. I’m not a switch snob and don’t feel compelled to lube everything i receive but the feel of the base switches was not great.

I re-lubed the switches and they’re working much better.
