Why are Cherry MX Clears so rare / unpopular? Even the keyboards via Drop that have Clears as an option are very few and far between, and the Clear switches are almost always an additional $20+ or more. And trying to find a NumPad or Macro switch box with Clears without soldering it yourself seems near impossible.

I guess the straw that kinda broke my back on this particular subject was when I was configuring an Ergodox keyboard, and while Clear switches were an option, they do not offer it in a backlit variant. That is especially irritating given my KBParadise V80 with Cherry Clears is individually backlit, so it shouldn't really be a compatibility thing.

I find them to be an excellent alternative to Blue/ Brown switches if you find the Blues too noisy, or find the Browns too light. My dream keyboard would be a backlit Ergodox with Clears, but it's one of only a couple configs they don't offer. But even in "boutique" mechanical keyboards, the Clears are still limited in availability, and cost a premium in almost every instance.

Anyone else love them? Anyone else disappointed by the lack of options?
Clears and greens are my favorite switches I've tried so far (haven't tried many out of the common cherry, gateron, and kailh options though). Like skupples mentioned you can find WASD boards with clears and I've also found that a lot of Vortex boards have clears as an option as well. Neither WASD nor Vortex are the cheapest options but I own two boards from each manufacturer and they're all quality products.

My ALT High Profile is here!!!

My Drop ALT is finally here!! As we know the stabs are really loose, but I'm going do the normal mod list, band-aid, clipping and lubbing.

The Kailh Silver Switch are going to wait... coming from CherryMX Silver this feel too heavy for me, so, I think I'm going to order some 35g Springs in order to make they more light, a pack of films are on the mail too.

Now I need to learn QMK in order to make that led strip do like the Knight Rider K.I.T.T. front strip jejejeje.

I've been using a Ducky Mecha Mini (60% KB) with Cherry MX Silent Reds for a good 6 months now. After using classic Cherry MX Reds, I thought the Silent Reds would just be the same thing only quieter. I have never gotten used to the 'mushy' feel of the dampeners doing their thing to mute the 'clack' of classic Reds. So, regarding this topic, since it's already too late to return this, I went ahead and just got another Mecha Mini (there's a v2 now, so slightly improved) with classic MX Reds.

Anyone else have this experience where going from Reds to Silent Reds was too much of a change to get used to?

It's been a while since I last frequented this thread, but there have been tons of good people here sugesting good things at different points so I figured I would ask some questions here again.

I am looking in to putting together a board for someone else, though I am unsure on some of the specifics. Normally I would just buy a Varmilo board and stick with their excellent dye sub PBT caps, but given that they don't seem to have any that work well with backlit keyboards I am looking on to some other stuff.

What would you guys and gals do if you were building a board for someone (100-300USD range) and needed stable stuff on the software side, a full sized ISO board and good coloured caps that also allow baclighting to shine through? As for keys, I am leaning towards MX silent reds.

Any input on this would be great.
