Modeled after popular Cherry MX mechanical switches, Gateron’s SMD MX switches have amassed an impressive following for properties all their own. Often described as “smoother” or “softer” than their Cherry counterparts, Gateron SMD MX switches are great for those who want an effortless typing experience with just the right amount of resistance. Like Cherry switches, Gaterons come in a number of different colors, each with its own unique characteristics. Available here are linear Reds, clicky Blues, linear and progressive-spring-equipped Yellows, heavy and clicky Greens, and sensitive and linear Clears. As their name indicates, Gateron SMD MX switches are compatible with SMD LEDs found on most hot-swappable boards. Choose a 70-, 90-, or 110-count pack to fit your setup.
