Gateron Yellow linear switches – “full black” (KS-3) version

A great value linear switch that can give you 85% of the performance of high-end switches (when lubed correctly) for a fraction of the price. Positioned in the “sweet spot” between Reds and Blacks by weight and well loved for its “slow curve” spring.

Here’s what have to say about them (although I don’t think it’s true any more now that the Gateron Pro Yellows are available):

Best variation of this switch. They do not need films and are by far the smoothest Gateron switches/housings aside from Inks which while definitely smoother are also 6 times the price.

Gateron Linjรคr and N1 switches are re-colours of the KS-3 for example. The fixing pins (for PCB-mounting) are somewhat wider than Cherry MX, giving a tighter fit. Supports two-pin LED’s only.
