Can someone clear something up please? I read on GeekHack that the Matias Red switches are not true linear. The description describes it as "mostly linear" with a tactile bump just before you bottom out - possibly caused by the compressed leaf.
Did this individual get a bad sample switch or does the tactile leaf still provide some (barely) tactility?
This "bump" is only at the end of the press. After the actuation point.
I thought it was a bit strange first using them, but it really does help me not bottom out the switches. Ergonomically it's much better.
I have *many* a few linear switch keyboards (including hall effect, and many one-of-a-kinds) that are much better than Cherry's current offerings. The Matias Linear stacks up quite well against them (and is available).
Taking silencing out of the equation - how does the Matias Red stack up against Gaterons?
I think Matias Reds are still better personally.
Gaterons are just a really good Cherry clone imo which is a meh design in the first place.
However, you really just got to try them to decide :P
What do think about Matias Quiet Pro Switches (comparing to the Matias Reds)?
At this point it's just tactile vs. linear. The tactile switches are actually tactile, and the Matias Linear switch is linear by my measure (the bump is at the end, and has no part in the actuation).
