Hey guys I'm kind of new to the keyboard game. I just got the Redragon K552 KUMARA. Does anyone know if these keys are good or work for this kind of keyboard?
pcb mount or plate?
udller
Just go for PCB mount and if the board you're using doesn't support it then you can just clip off the two plastic nubs and make them plate mount.

Haha I didn't realise there was an option to choose. I only read the pages with out joining. Rhabkst
What, no Silent Browns?
JohnRCooper
You can try Aliaz silent switches

While this is by no means a bad drop, I came to say this.
The 4-8 day shipping beats waiting until January too.
Tommiw
You the real MVP.
Can someone explain how Gat Blacks would feel when compared to Gat Browns and Cherry Clears? Gat Browns are too light for me, but Cherry Clears are a bit too heavy. Would Gat Blacks be the perfect compromise?

Gat blacks are also linear type switches, and do not have that tactle bump present in browns & clears
nk4261
Oh yeah, good point. If you're looking for something in this drop that is tactile and falls between Gat brown and Cherry clear, you would have to do a spring swap into Gat browns. You can get MX springs from 55g-62g that would be between the two. Even a 67g spring feels a lot lighter than stock MX clear. Stock MX clear get heavier the further you press down.
These should work in the Planck hi-pro keyboards right?

Yes
What type should I get for the M60-A?
Gateron black or yellow? They have the same weightings so I'm struggling.
XxGSUS420xX
the weighting on yellows increases slower than blacks.

Ah sick thanks
Hello everyone,
As i use Varmillo VB87M and it is sold either with Cherry or Gateron switches, should i go with Cherry or stay with Gateron? When i have bought mine, it came with Gateron clears, which i'll probably change to silent browns.

Is this an ongoing poll? When was this poll taken place?
heldpizza
This poll is referenced at the top of this drop’s overview. It is now closed.
Very disappointed to not see the option for Silent Browns, as Gateron Silent Browns switches are arguably one of the best in the market !
RSF_Deus
isnt that all entirely preference? (at least when you are considering the more commonly used or trusted brands)
RSF_Deus
Do you have a link to silent browns?
You can get these far cheaper from meckeyalpha :)
I ordered the Clears, and received my package today. Oddly early, but I won't complain.
Hello I have a kbparadise v60. Do I have to get pbc or plate mount switches? anyone know?
chickenstrip2400
It has plate mount
AUD? or USD? please

blacks or tealios? :(
neemajon
Tealios if you're willing to spend that extra money, but blacks are pretty nice :)
Unless this hits the lowest drop point, it's literally cheaper from Glorious (as long as you use a 15% off code) or KBDfans, both of which you will get probably before this drop ends.

Ah, I get what you mean. I try to avoid buying from MD, since I get hit with a huge customs fee (and a handling fee) because I'm in the UK.
princessvikky426
I look forward to that day where customs isn't an issue. But that day will unfortunately never come, so it will always be an unfortunate consideration.
Same amount from KBDfans, 26e including shipping to Serbia..... Why should we bother with this drop?

But there is worse shipping on KBD depending on where you are as well. You asked why this drop should be bothered with, and the answer is that for a lot of people it can save them money and they don't care about the wait.
A lot of people don't care about the wait time. I get these so I always have them on-hand. I already have enough switches for my current builds.
What do you guys think of gateron brown over Cherry MX brown I've never tried the gateron version

I have the gaterons brown on my Anne Pro and cherry browns on my Vortex Race 3. I honestly like Cherrys more. It give you more tactile feel while Gateron has a smooth transition.
PlasmaPod
I have a board with gateron browns and one with cherry browns, I like them both, I type hard and bottom out a lot so some of the intricacies of the two switches may be lost on me, but I intend on ordering a set of the gateron browns just to have laying around. I like them as much as the cherries.
I'm thinking that in college my future roommate would prefer I get browns or one of the linear switches. Is it really a big deal if i got greens or blues?

Blues and Greens are loud as hell. I like my Cherry Blues a lot and love typing on them, however, my 3 room mates have all stated that they always know when I am on my computer since they are so loud. Our rooms are pretty far apart but even through my closed doors and their closed doors, they can hear me. So not everyone will like it. 2 of my room mates don't like them and the other one doesn't mind too much.
ThePWRofYog
At least mechanical keyboards are not as loud as type writers.
drop halo pls
So, SwitchTop and Flashquark have them for $30, and you can have it in days, not 2 months.
KBDFans has them for $24, and even shipping from China, averages under a month.
Still not sure how this 'discount' is worth it.
ARCFXX
Actually, if you pay for Fedex shipping with KBDFans it shows up in a couple days, at least to Canada and it's about the same or less money for shipping than most drops here.
do these switches have the bump next to where the spring goes on the bottom part of the housing? if they do, cherry silent stems won't work with it.
RaymondLu
Yeah, anything ordered within the last 6-8 months will have that.
ARCFXX
Depends on if the seller has old stock. which mass drop sometimes sells
Do these switches work with surface mounted LEDs? Like do they work on the Glorious GMMK TKL?
Windspeed
probably not, there is a special version of gateron switches that support the smd leds. they have a special cutout on the housing that the normal gaterons don't have
Windspeed
No, like Windspeed said, the SMD version has a square cutout instead of little holes for the through-hole leads. Assuming they're clear/cloudy white tops, you could possibly get away with drilling them, if you're into that kind of thing. I'm planning on doing that myself since I'm doing a board with some surface mount RGBWs
I love gaterons as much as the next person, but could massdrop consider their way into dropping cherry switches next time? Especially PCB mounted clears and the RGB and silent variants. You guys have enough purchasing power, distribution and reach you could make it really interesting.
FYI, Since my last post, this has become the best deal for Gateron switches shipping from the US (that I could find), if you dont mind waiting. Second best would be directly from Glorious PC Gaming Race with their 15% off coupon (about $29 bucks plus shipping). Those guys ship super fast, usually getting your stuff out the same day and shipped in the US with USPS Priority. Great if youre in a rush to get your switch on!
Is it strange that I only want to replace one switch?

Just take a spring out of a mechanical pencil and put it in the switch
136 browns from kbdfans cost roughly the same as 120 at MD and ship now and not next year. (shipping to Germany)
