love these keycaps for typing, i make little to no errors and love the sound. for gaming i do like something with a bit of physical feed back and prefer tactile or clicky switches. but for a daily driver these will do the trick for those who love smooth linear switches without the platsticy bottom out sound

After 2yrs with Silent Reds, I went back to classic MX Reds. I could never get used to the 'mushy' feel since I'm not a touch typist. Instead of clack, you get a thud for feedback. On paper, Silent Reds should actuate the same as MX Reds. But in my experience, the built-in stabilizers made my switches feel stiff (even after lubing them).

Great to use for gaming - Personally prefer Blue/Clicky tactile switches for typing. Universally is great! Super silent and good to use anywhere! Overall great switch!

Silence is golden. Especially while gaming. Keys are smooth and no ghosting or miss clicks and theyre pretty quiet. I love these switches, orings make it a little quieter but gives you even less switch travel so its up to you on putting orings. I prefer no orings because of how much less switch travel there is with o rings. Tho i want my board to quiet as possible.

Soft, but not very quiet. It is a little louder than expected. I had to lube the switches to make them super quiet. Nice for content creators and streamers.

The mallets I have for fingers were trained on manual typewriters in the 80s, so I tend to be a bit heavy on switches and experience soreness from bottoming out regularly. Sometimes dampers help, but silent reds have damping built in (on the rebound as well) so there's no need to shorten an already shortened travel distance with dampers. For gaming, twiddling and feather tapping work fine, thoug

These switches are completely fine other than the fact that they were a little to mushy for my liking and my fingers always felt weird after typing, by the way I have these switches on the ducky one 2 mini.

They feel fine, linears are almost always excellent for gaming, and typing is better than average compared to others to me for some reason. Feels like the keys are more responsive in some ways.

Definitely recommended for gaming. Typing on them is good, but it takes some time to get used to. These switches, used regularly, will grow on you. Great sound and feel to them.
