Guys, do Gateron switches feels inconsistent? Because I have an Outemu blue keyboard and it's inconsistent as fuck. I'm planning on switching to Gateron clear/brown/blue, feel free to give your opinions about those Gateron switches too

I've said this before, a while ago actually, but it's been real cool watching your channel improve over the years. I just rewatched your old key tester video from a year ago, and you've improved so much as a video maker since then. I love the sort of asmr approach for this video, and the graphics were well timed, minimalistic, and Christ it must have taken you forever to make all of them and edit them into the vid properly XD I've only ever used cherry reds so I guess they're my favorite, but I really want to try out a key with a bit more click to it because I really don't like how linear they are. I might buy myself a keyboard with cherry blues, tho now that this video has introduced the Jade greens to me maybe ill consider them as well. First I really need to get myself an SSD tho. Still running on an only hdd machine and it's THE WORST. Anyways great video Frank.

I personally own Blues, and yeah when I got it I was happy but turns out, it’s gets in the way of a lot of things. I prefer tactile and clicks but not noisy I guess. So browns and reds are pretty good
Otani Oribe (26 days ago)
Oh god, those Blue switch are earrape and cherry MX brown are really shit as well.
Zoey (28 days ago)
Hi Frank, in the video you mentioned that the razer orange was "silent linear", but as far as I know, the razer orange are actually tactile like MX Browns.

I'm currently keyboard shopping & this is the most useful info/tool I have come across thus far. So much has changed in mechanical keyboards! I will be referencing this again before I buy. Thank you!
Slavfactory (1 month ago)
can you go over switch wobble? from my own testing gateron have much more wobble then cherry mx switches but i have never done any testing with the newer switches like kailh or the zeal branded gaterons. so far im not really impressed by any of the chinese knockoffs. but the kailh dark yellows seemed to be pretty stable, so i would be curious about your results with those

BobBunny80 (1 month ago)
Btw I bought the Kailh Box Thick Jade Switches as soon as you said they were one of your favorite switches. It's really satisfying but I want to find a way to add it to my Razer Blackwidow Chroma V2 without losing the RGB. Any ideas? Or would it be possible to make my own custom "macros" that have no RGB but use the switches? Kind of like the size of a key switch tester but looks the same as a Razer Blackwidow Chroma V2 so it matches my setup?
BobBunny80 (1 month ago)
Can someone please tell me what the best clicky and silent key switch is? Like I prefer it to be more a tiny bit clickier than the Razer Oranges but just as, if not quieter than the Razer Oranges
OhKenzie (1 month ago)
I might be wrong but I thought Cherry Greens were clicky instead of tactile and Razer Orange were tactile instead of linear?
