A light, linear keyswitch that is nice for typing and great for gamers looking for something lighter than Cherry Blacks. Cherry MX Red’s linear feel combined with minimal spring force produces fast response times and smooth operation.

In my opinion they're a great choice for one's first switches (specially considering availability and stuff like that)

I've spent a week with a board of reds after a few years of more tactile switches, so I accept I might have a bias. I've found the reds to be too light to be used with muscle memory. I am regularly getting errant keypresses, despite being a well practices touch typer. A similar experience while gaming, I regularly hit the wrong keys simply reaching for anything outside the WSAD cluster. Cherry Re

I added some clear 40-A o-rings to them and they feel amazing now. I love these switches!
