Hi! I have two questions: First, being a five-pin switch is it compatible with hot-swap keyboards? and, With 45 g. spring, what's the difference to Cherry Browns? ThkU!

I can only answer your first question, but from my knowledge, you can clip of the two plastic stems on the side with cutters so that it can fit your hotswap board. But if your PCB comes with holes for them, don't bother clipping them! The support they provide is always nice.

With the 5 pin you can just cut the 2 off you don't need. I put them in my GMMK board which is hot-swap without issue after trimming the 2 legs off. The weight is similar to the Browns but the bump/feel is much more pronounced/different than the Browns. Hope that helps some

@ragedemons , are you happy with your GMMK? How does it compare with standard issue keyboards?

Sorry for slow response - I really like the GMMK and don't have any issues with it. I have the TKL version and works well for me as a software developer. I do have fancier or more expensive boards too but find myself using this one a good bit still as it's easy to try out switches in. I'll put a switch in and make myself use it for a week or so to really see how I like them. I'm not sure you're definition of a standard board but for the money I would say go with a GMMK over most other things. If you want to go to the next level and get something all aluminum or a little bit more custom I'd say KBDfans or the Drop ALT is even a good choice.
