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:

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 Linjär 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.
