Gateron Milky Switches feature am opaque housing made of a different kind of plastic from normal Gateron housings.
The milky housing causes the LED lighting to be diffused more evenly through the keycaps. In addition, they cause the switch to have a deeper and “fuller” sound.

- Black – 60g Linear (70g bottom out)

The two extra legs can be clipped to become suitable for use as plate-mounted switches.

Sounds really nice. Has a lot of thock and can be improved with lube. Kinda scratchy though, but again can be improved with lube. Overall a great switch.

The Milky Yellow switches sound and feel awesome to use. For the price they’re unbeatable.

These are a go-to for customer builds. Cheap but incredible. Using lube definitely makes a difference but they’re very good stock as well
