Quiet!
I bought these to use with my Preonic and to replace my Halo switches. I like the tactile feel of these better and I'm impressed at how much quieter they are. The only problem I've had with the Gateron Aliaz switches is that occasionally I'll find a key press to feel a tiny bit scratchy.

Silent indeed but a bit sticky
The difference from MX browns is tremendous, they are much more silent. But I feel the typing experience is not as fun. They feel heavier and stickier, and I make more typing mistakes than usual. However, they are solid switches and I do recommend them if typing silently is a priority.

I love these switches, especially because of their subtle bumps nearing the end of the press. So smooth... Like lightly tapping a baby cheek 😅 All in all, if you read this review remember that switches are all about PRE FE RENCE.

I tried to like them
I really tried to like them as the offerings for silent tactiles is quite narrow, but these just don't provide the bump you're looking for.

Eh
They’re okay. I was expecting more of a tactile bump and they didn’t deliver at all. Not terrible but not in use at the moment. At least they wobble less than Halos.

Pretty good switch
This is an interesting switch for me. I got these only because Drop was selling them for dummy cheap compared to KBDF so I figured it was worth a shot. As a disclaimer, if your looking for ultimate in tactility, these are not it. You'll have to go with HPs or one of Zeal's offerings for that. I have 67g Zilents in my current board and I love them. The Aliaz is a different type of tactile. On a scale of MX brown to Zealios, these are much closer to browns. However, I feel that they're better than browns. The tactile event is very long and soft, but it's smoother, and with the silencing pads, it's got a softer and quieter bottom out. I put one in between a 67g Zilent and a 67g Roselio on a tester I have. I can say that even with it's super light tactility, I like the 70g Aliaz more than the Roselio. I'd rather have that slight bit of resistance than no resistance at all from a linear. After lubing with 3203 and a Deskeys film, the sound is really quite nice too and the little bit a tactility is still there. To sum it up, I like this switch. I don't LOVE it.... But they will find there way into a build of mine soon.

Ugh, really wanted to love them.
I can only compare these to the MX Cherry Silent Reds and Cherry Reds because I generally prefer a linear feel. I wanted to give these a try because I value fast typing and tactile switches seem to be perfect for that. These definitely don't feel like that, the tactility is apparent, but the silent part... These compare in sound to the Reds, and have about the same clear acrylic fragility. They rattle quite a bit on upstroke and I definitely broke a couple while soldering and de-soldering them, whereas of over a 100 Silent Reds, I only broke one. I am not going to throw them away, obviously, but I wouldn't recommend updating from the Cherry Silent Reds, because these puppies are THE quietest switch out there.

Cherry MX Browns
Feels like a silent MX brown switch with stronger MX black spring.

Silent but it feels linear
The switches are silent as expected but the tactile is not here... It feels like linear switch. This is the worst tactile silent switches I have. Theses switches are cheap and don't make ads for silent tactile even for that price (50$ for 90 switches).
