My gaming performance improved noticeably when switching from roamer g switches to Cherry MX Speed Silvers. Very, very happy with them. They feel excellent paired with double shot pbt keycaps. Typing is great, but if that's your priority I'd advise going with the reds instead as these can be sensitive at times. Nothing that one can't get used to but require more forethought.

These switches are so sensitive, the first time I tried to type with these I kept having random letters poping because my fingers was kind of scratching the surface of the keyboard going from one key to another. You get used to it very fast and the reward is priceless. You can type not even pressing the key if you're good enough ! Awesome switches for gaming especially, confortable for typing.

I think these are the perfect switches for me. I don't have a hard time typing on these at all.

It takes a minute to get used to, and it's pretty scratchy, but it's one of the more solid Cherry switches.

It took a while to get used to these, but I really enjoy them. They're in my Anne Pro 2, which I use a lot on the go and pretty frequently in my lap, mainly for typing. For lack of a better term, they feel tight since they don't need much force and they're pretty quiet. I'm really enjoying them, but I can see how if one maybe has heavier hands, actuating the keys accidentally might be a problem.

Kinda light, the actuation point is a little too quick for me but I'll get used to it. Also, the sound is GREAT.

I recently purchased a K70 Mk.2 from Corsair, and the keyboard has been working excellently for me! With both stock and aftermarket keycaps, the switches perform very excellently. The sound quality is very excellent, the registration of the switch takes very little actuation force and distance, and it seems to be quite durable from my experiences so far. Would definitely recommend for gaming!

I'm a professional writer with joint inflammation issues. The mx silver allows me to type with such a light touch that I can go hours longer before I start getting that squeezed feeling in my wrists. It's like typing on a cloud. But if you aren't a precise keyboardist, if you don't float your wrists when you type, or if you like to rest a little weight on the keys, you'll hate these switches.
