Very quiet, and more tactile than MX Browns. Hands-down best Alps switch currently being produced.

Fans of switches with clicky tactile feel will love this. Weight is in-between -- not too heavy, not too light when pressing.

Best clicky switches, in my opinion. Short travel, high actuation point, low resistance.
