honestly its a really good switch, but one down side is that the red switches are really loud. but they are super responsive and great for gaming :)

Gateron Reds are exactly what they are perceived to be: smooth. Best feeling switch out of the box. However, the 'wobble' associated with Gaterons is also real. The stem is a bit looser which results in a smoother actuation . But that's the trade off. Smoothness at the expense of stable keys.

Really smooth and light for gaming. 45g is horrendous for typing. If a finger so much as grazes the edge of a key, it gets actuated on accident. Gotta keep your fingers raised high and type very slowly. I still love them for how smooth they are, but I can't use them comfortably.
