Why are the Inks so much more pricier? Inks are the premium line of switches under Gateron. The Ink housing versus milky housing.... everyone's experience is different, but I would say the Inks give off a thockier sound profile than the milky's. 

Main difference would definitely be how smooth it is as STOCK. Gateron does not specify what the housing material is, but I would believe the plastic (housing) has a lower co-efficient of friction because of how smooth the stroke is. 

These switches come lightly pre-lubed. You can lube over.

Great Switches!

I know people say these switches have QC issues, but I personally haven't gotten a bad batch yet. Maybe they've been fixed in the past year or so? Great for making deep-pitched frankenswitches!

Fantastic Switch! (Ink Black v2)

Stock these are great switches, take some time to lube and film these and they become fantastic switches! They produce a muted, deep tone and have a satisfying push and return feel. The spring weight may be heavy for some, but if you type heavy like me and enjoy bottoming out linears then this is for you. If you have the money, I recommend getting some, enough to at least cover the alphas just to try them out!
