Gateron Browns are a true modern classic, but even a classic tactile switch can be improved.

These Pro switches keep the consistent operation and tactile feel of classic Gateron Browns while offering a handful of notable improvements, especially for those who want to use a switch that truly doesn't require any modifications or additional work.

The Pro includes:

  • Tighter Tolerances
  • A New Casing Mold (Polycarbonate)
  • Being Pre-Lubed at the Factory
  • An Enhanced Pro-Stem (POM)
  • A Thicker Metal Leaf
  • A lifespan of 60 million cycles 

These switches are packed in a protective tin and include a switch puller.

Smooth switch

These are very smooth with a light bump and deeper sound. I loved the packaging and the prompt delivery. Thanks for carrying the switches. Not many places seem to.

Smooth Tactile Switch

These went into a System76 Launch board. I got these to replace another tactile switch that was hand lubed and filmed, but had become very scratchy shortly after this painstaking effort. The Pro Browns are buttery smooth with a small bump. I wish the effort was a little heavier, but the buttery smooth action on these switches and the fact that I did not have to open them up and lube them, make me fall in love with them all over again with each new key press. Gateron, thank you for making these! Now, I have to get another set for my home office board.

Love them!

So this board is my Keychron K10 with Gateron Pro Red switches, I decided like my work board to switch them out to Browns, and I was happy I did, I love the silence from the Reds, but I also like the tactile from the Browns, I ordered on a Sunday and received on a Friday But didn't switch out the switches until this last Monday as it was a day off I could do it on and had the time. And the best part is they are pre-lubed, so if you don't have the time the cost of these is great. Only one switch had a bent pin and that was easy enough to bend back and all switches worked. I love the tin they came in and they are holding my old reds until I decide what to do with them. It makes a nice safe holder for them. If/when I decide to redo my switches on either of my boards, I'll definitely get them from here again.

A Solid Improvement

In a blind test of a full board, I can't really say if I'd notice a difference between these and traditional Gat Browns that've been lubed. Some people enjoy the process of lubing switches. I'm not one of those people, so the price difference over stock Gateron Browns to me is well worth the cost, especially if you don't have the supplies to lube switches already yourself.

My only real gripe is that my batch, to varying degrees, had quite a few squeaky and/or pingy switches(~5-15 out of 115). In my experience that's not too uncommon when buying any bag of loose switches, so I'm not too bothered. I just thought factory lubed switches would be a little more consistent. I won't speculate whether this is common or a 'problem' with Gat Pros because I'm a sample size of one. I chalked it up to luck of the draw. I'd recommend going with the "5 Extra Switches" option in any case.
