The switches came out great and were shipped well!

Expected good...received great

I had purchased a 65% keyboard with knob online that I thought would be my favorite but it quickly ended up being my most hated as the yellow stock switches were one of the worst and loudest metal-y spring hearing keyboard with every key. I've ordered keyboard from that online store before with the same switches before and none were a fraction as loud as this one was. I tried the tape mod and bought switch pads, but nothing. I came across Gateron Oil King Linears while looking to try something new for my daily driver. Once I received them, I decided to give my nightmare keyboard one last chance and switched out the hell-ish yellow stock switches. I already knew they were going to be good, but I didn't know they came with a side of miracle because this keyboard is now my daily driver with one of the most pleasant sounds.
