What do you guys think of gateron brown over Cherry MX brown I've never tried the gateron version
Well they are clone and exactly the same in terms of specs. But things change when you actually type on them. Gateron are more smooth in general. And they have more keycap wobble than Cherry
Gaterons tend to be smoother but more prone to breaking. I think the plastic they use is a lower grade and a little softer, which is why it is smoother, but their quality isn't where Cherry switches quality is at. Product failure is still pretty uncommon though
I have the gaterons brown on my Anne Pro and cherry browns on my Vortex Race 3. I honestly like Cherrys more. It give you more tactile feel while Gateron has a smooth transition.
I have a board with gateron browns and one with cherry browns, I like them both, I type hard and bottom out a lot so some of the intricacies of the two switches may be lost on me, but I intend on ordering a set of the gateron browns just to have laying around. I like them as much as the cherries.
