Gateron Phantom Switch
I got my Phantom Yellow switches in my pre-assembled Q1 Knob Version and they have proven to be a comfortable and fun switch. The yellow housing creates some interesting color mixes but can be annoying at times because a solid white isn't possible. The marketing suggests that the factory applied lube is thick and that certainly holds true, it took a few weeks for the switches to smooth out and now they feel fantastic. I am impressed with their buttery texture and the sound characteristics are appealing. To my ears they have a muted, deep "clack" sound but aren't quite deep enough for "thock", although a PC or POM plate would provide a deeper sound. I have no problems recommending these Gateron Phantom switches to people looking for unique pre-lubed switches.
I got these because they were about half the price of factory lubed Glorious Pandas and I have no regrets. They feel the best out of anything I've tried, the caveat being that I've only tried unlubed non-hot-swap boards before. They also have a more noticeable tactile bump than the regular gateron browns, which is not a high bar but still. Seriously enjoying these in my first custom board!
Phantom Switch is good item.
love the colors and the sound. thanks y'all
Gateron Phantom Switch
If you are looking for a new feel on your keyboard, you came to the right place. Keychron teamed up with Gateron to create the exclusive Phantom switches. They are designed to deliver a premium smooth and tactile typing experience. The SMD-LED compatible switches are fully compatible with our regular Keychron mechanical keyboard.
Note: The Phantom switches have phantom light effects that allows the RGB backlight to have the switches' own case color. The red will make the backlights have more of a red lava fire effect, the blue will allow the backlights to have a more of a mysterious blizzard like effect, and the brown will make the backlights coffee color and the yellow will make the backlights shine like the sun.
Silky Smooth And Satisfying
When it comes to the feel and performance of your switches, every detail counts. As one of Gateron Pro switch series, every detail in Gateron Phantom Switch delivers near perfect consistency and smoothness with each keypress. Available in red, blue, brown and yellow, these custom switches will elevate any board you put them in.
Pre-Lubed, Plus Stable
Compared to regular Gateron switches, these factory pre-lubed Gateron Phantom switches (excluding Blue switch) offer less wobbliness while increase switch thickness as well as stability.
