A silent, light, and linear keyswitch that is nice for typing and great for gamers looking for something lighter than Cherry Blacks. The patented noise reduction reliably minimizes any operating noises. This is the most silent form of quality, precision and reliability making it ideal for office environments and TeamSpeak.

Love the quiet sound of these switches. Ideal for office work environments but also lessens mic noise in gaming sessions. Very similar feel to MX Blacks for me, slightly more force than normal reds.

Having used Clears and Browns, I can say that I really enjoy Silent Reds. The typing experience is unique, but once you get used to them they are a fun typing experience. Not to mention that you can keep things quiet when you're typing away.

Pretty good switch, very silent use and smooth action, but after using for about a year, I can definitely say that they are less smooth than when I began using them. The silence characteristics haven't changed though.

Very good for content creating especially since i dont have a Microphone that is very high quality love the silence good in offices but typing is hard because the actuation is so low that i keep miss clicking but overall 8/10 i prefer silvers tho

I love my Ducky One 2 Mini with silent reds but I would highly recommend Silvers unless you need the quietness of a silent red. Overall a great switch just a little deep compared to what I had on my Anne Pro 2.

If you want "silent" switches without to much hassle, this is the way to go. I'm doing a lot of typing and definitly do not recommend. The main part is linear kinda bad for tying and the activation travel distance is really short so you will hit ready keys by accident.

When I got my ducky with these switches, when I pressed them there was a ping when it bottomed out and when I lightly pressed them they were scratchy. I would stick to something like gaterons or other cherry mx switches.

Great for gaming in my opinion. Especially if you don't want to be loud. I used to like clicky switches until I found that they were just too obnoxious and couldn't stand them anymore. Silent Linear's all the way.

I have had these on my ducky one 2 mini for a while now and they feel pretty scratchy in the beginning but that feeling goes away after a couple of months. They feel really nice for gaming and are very satisfying to type on.
