TTC's Bluish White switch has proven to be an exceptionally popular tactile switch. Its close cousin, the Silent Bluish White Tactile switch shares its rounded but sharp tactility in a quieter package.
We have worked with TTC to bring the new 2022 tooled Silent Bluish White into the fold. Further modifications were made, the hardness of the bottom-out pad is further increased, the coil lubricant has been thinned out, and instead of the large hollowed-out LED cover we selected a more appropriate convex lens (enhancing keycap compatibility).
To truly make this a tactile switch, besides TTCs signature double coiled spring, the stem bump has been refined to provide a tactile force of 60g (42g actuation). The bump is crisp and clean.
This is a great silent switch, we really like them for larger keycaps (2U's+ and even space bars). This is the 2022 Silent Edition, it's not an easy find.

TTC is well known for its workhorse switches and has recently entered the high end fray. Beyond keyboard switches the company specializes in the design and production of switches, encoders, electronic switches and connectors, which are widely used in computers, automobiles, intelligent machines, mice, keyboards, digital audio, household appliances, office equipment, measuring instruments, industrial control equipment, and more.
All of our TTC switches are direct from the factory, with no reseller or other middle-handler. Tested and packaged in the USA by SwitchCaptain. These switches come with an authenticity seal, and unique serial, guaranteeing the switches are directly from TTC. This means no risk of split pins, cracked plastic, uneven spacing, improper operation, keyboard damage, or other issues from non-authentic products.
These switches are packed in a protective tin and include a switch puller.
What is the SwitchCaptain Authentication program?
We are keyboard and mice enthusiasts ourselves, we have spent hours (perhaps days, okay fine, weeks) trying to find particular keycaps, switches, lubricants, and more. Too often we stumble across knock-off products, poor quality components (that can do real damage), and sometimes even stores passing non-genuine products as the real thing! Enough is enough. So we got together and decided on a plan moving forward to stop fake products from hurting all the different folks involved.
The SwitchCaptain Authentication program includes a holographic seal on every item we sell, each seal has a unique code that lets you verify your product came from the original brand.
We want you to know that if you buy a product from us that what you get is real.
Let us be clear:
- All branded products we sell are bought from the manufacturer directly, we do not try to save a buck and purchase from a supplier (which we find super suspicious in the first place). If a manufacturer won't sell to us direct we will not have it in the store. This includes big names as well as up-and-comers.
- This also means that manufacturers ship directly to us, we inspect for quality, package them in sealed bags (so they cannot be tainted), code them into our authentication database, and ship it to the customer (that's you!). We do not allow 'middle-persons' to broker any product, as this opens up an opportunity for manipulation.
- Any product from SwitchCaptain without an authentication sticker is counterfeit or repurposed without authorization. Even our refurbished products are authorized.
- We require all brands to provide us with proof of any certifications they say they have. The onus is still on them of course. If a manufacturer cannot produce for example their RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) when they are supposed to be able to, we will not work with them. While we do not know of all licenses, permits, and certifications, we try our best to keep an eye out.
