Great Switches!
I know there have been some negative reviews on these switches, but I decided to give them a chance anyway. With respect to Price/switch the Candy Jades are a very appealing, great looking switch. I used the switches on a YMDK Alice board and was very satisfied with there performance. They have a nice snappy return from a that long spring and sound great. If you are looking for a nice, fairly priced switch with more than just the typical red, yellow or brown performance, I would absolutely recommend the Candy Jades.

Fantastic Switches
I’m not the most knowledgeable about switches yet but these were easy to use and went absolutely so well with my new snorlax keyboard!

These are literally awful
I bought these when I was very inexperienced fully based on the aesthetics. Fast forward months later, I've learned a lot and part of that learning was the reality that these switches may be bad. When they were finally delivered, I realized how truly bad they are. Absolute garbage switches. No amount of lubing, filming, or anything will make them good. Please don't buy these.

Not the switch I was expecting.
It's all preference, but be aware these switches have a unique stem design with plastic "feet" at the bottom in an attempt to create a soft bottom-out feel. At the time of purchase the listing made no mention of this feature nor included a photo of that aspect. To me that feature was unpleasant to type on, just felt less solid. In addition I found them to have a fairly high amount of stem wobble, and their MX clips for opening were sized just slightly narrower that my existing opening tools really struggled to get under them. I considered hanging onto them to perhaps try a different stem or use them for frankenswitch parts, but the difficulty of opening them made even that prospect unappealing. Fortunately due to "not advertised" stem feature, DROP was able to facilitate a return/refund. So overall positive experience, but not due to the switches.

Good move on the return if you didn't like them. Due to the unique design of the stems the housings seem to have slightly different dimensions and have tolerance issues with other stems (although I've only tried a couple of gateron stems). They get a little stuck about half way through the keystroke and almost feel like tactiles despite being linear stems.

Very unique, but definitely need lube
These are probably the most unique switches I own. They have a very long spring, about 50% longer than most other switches I’ve seen, and the stem is designed in such a way that the side pieces that slot into the slider rails of the housing don’t actually hit the bottom of the switch. As a result the switch is very quiet on the downstroke and has a nice clack on the upstroke. There’s a little bit of scratch stock, but they’re nice with just a little krytox.

Can confirm. These are smooth out of the box, but they sound pretty rough until lubed. I have some comparison sound tests in this overview video of the KK Lightwave V2, which is the same switch aside from the spring: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOV1OJIPPzA
