A silent, light, and linear keyswitch that is nice for typing and great for gamers looking for something lighter than Cherry Blacks. The patented noise reduction reliably minimizes any operating noises. This is the most silent form of quality, precision and reliability making it ideal for office environments and TeamSpeak.

If you want "silent" switches without to much hassle, this is the way to go. I'm doing a lot of typing and definitly do not recommend. The main part is linear kinda bad for tying and the activation travel distance is really short so you will hit ready keys by accident.

When I got my ducky with these switches, when I pressed them there was a ping when it bottomed out and when I lightly pressed them they were scratchy. I would stick to something like gaterons or other cherry mx switches.

Great for gaming in my opinion. Especially if you don't want to be loud. I used to like clicky switches until I found that they were just too obnoxious and couldn't stand them anymore. Silent Linear's all the way.

I have had these on my ducky one 2 mini for a while now and they feel pretty scratchy in the beginning but that feeling goes away after a couple of months. They feel really nice for gaming and are very satisfying to type on.

It's a great switch if you're a light and accurate typist. I recently started transitioning to touch typing after using only 4/10 fingers for 15 years and it's incredibly easy to make typing errors. Very fast when used by a capable person though.

One of the best cherry switches for mixed tasks, be wary that it may be harder to type as the actuation is so short and there is no sign of telling when the key is pressed like how a mx brown/blue does.

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!
