Kailh Silent Switches

I've ordered a set of these: AliExpress link
They've arrived, I've soldered them in instead of standard, D2F-style switches and they work like a charm. Very short travel, high actuation point, and they're very silent indeed. They're not mushy at all either. Store claims a nominal lifetime of 800 million clicks, which I highly doubt would be real.

Great choice if you have a wife/girlfriend/roommate who would like to sleep while you vigorously clickspam during the night.

Agreed, they are pretty nice, but you also have to find the proper mice for it because of the short travel. In the G305, it is extremely light (lever action + spring tensioning). I will try them in some Zowie mice, it should work better there.
Also, you can find exactly the same looking switches on aliexpress for $1.7 / 10pcs. I have no idea if they are genuine Kailh (who would have thought one day we would be worried about fake Kailh products, lol), but they look 100% the same. Some of these offers actually don't advertise it as Kailh, just look the same.

I paid $10 for 20pcs to have that guaranteed genuine Kailh quality, haha.
