Got mine yesterday, gateron clears. my daily is a QFR with browns but wanted a 60% that I could carry in my backpack for work and school. I have been using this keyboard for a day and so far I am loving these keys. No problems at all with key chatter for me. The clears do feel very different from the cherry browns, almost too smooth. But after a few hours of typing they feel very enjoyable.
Very nice. Which keycaps are those, the Tai Hao Rosewill keycaps? Also good to hear you have no issues with key chatter. Mine should be in Tuesday.
Yes these are Rosewill keycaps I got off ebay for about $17 including shipping. They are also ABS but they feel a little better than the stock ones. The stock keycaps are not bad though, the layers are easy to remember so I wasn't worried about switching out the keycaps.
Gateron Clears are linear, they shouldn't really feel anything like Cherry MX Browns. If anything they're a lighter spring version of Cherry MX Reds.
That's the one "name" Gateron messed up, their clears have no relation to Cherry MX Clears.
Yup the clears are linear with an actuation of 35 cN. Since I already had cherry browns, I wanted to buy a keyboard with linear switches. I was intrigued that the gateron clears were were actually lighter than mx reds. Overall I am satisfied with the feel of the clears. The comment about the switches feeling different was meant as a simple comparison, although the switches are completely different :).
