I assume these come pre-lubed unless noted (like the panda ones they recently sold)?

120 is such an odd amount. Too many for 1 keyboard, not quite enough for 2.

Reminds me of the good ol' 6:8 hot dog bun:dog ratio.

Does anyone know if the blues use a click jacket like Cherry or are they click bar?

So others were saying Browns were the quietest. Got my Anne Pro 2 with Browns and - Rata-Tat-Tat! - They are so noisy. 🤨 Even when the keyboard is laying on bedding, which would naturally muffle some of the case reverberations. I want a bit of tactility, but not so much noise. Would O-Rings resolve this for me? From where?

if you like the tactility of the browns, I would consider getting the gateron silent browns that are tuned to be silent. I've found that o-rings drastically change the bottom-out feel. Or if you're looking for something really nice the Aliaz tactile switches are silent and more tactile than gat browns. Imo it's the best silent tactile switch. Of course with either option you would need to desolder your pcb and solder the new ones in. Just something to think about.

I was needing gateron blacks, and luckily I saw this just in time! I’m really happy I bought it for cheaper than from Glorious since I’m using the GMMK tkl.

If you mean for what is being sold on Massdrop right now, they offer both PCB and plate mounted options for all the switches

Why only sold in batches of 120... most people buying them only need 60-87. And Feb ship date? Lol, can just go to aliexpress and pay 10% more and have it in a week or 2.

AliExpress is the way to go if you want to receive knockoff, counterfeit "Gateron" switches.

Not really, there are plenty of reputable vendors like kbdfans, mkb, ymd etc. It's the same place all the main websites ship from.

Aside from price, what could be a reason to buy these over the Halos that are currently available? Does Gateron do anything special in the way of the guts that wouldn't be found in a Cherry, Kailh, Outemu, etc? Like how the YOK pandas pair well with the Halo stem because their housing is tighter, would there ever be a reason to buy Gateron Browns/Clears over Halo? Not hating, just curious.

I am currently running the gat yellows actually right now on my preonic, with HPs on the num row and modifiers and a few NK_ sherbets for things like esc and the layer buttons. I did get some tangerine v2s and they are awesome, plan to get more to repace the yellows. Also ordered some silent alpacas to test out.

Nice. The tangerine v2 look interesting. Currently using the gateron varient and well, bring gateron milky top and black bottom, they type well like the others. Was interested in the v2 but heard mixed reviews about it, but the stem material is really interesting. Let me know what you think of the alpacas. Really interested in those.
