These switches are the silent line of Gateron. Great for those who like to type in the middle of the night without disturbing the other housemates! 

"They feel the same as their milky cousins. The only difference? The sound, of course. It's not completely quiet, but it's VERY close to being silent! The only thing you will be hearing is your fingers smashing the keycaps. (lol) 

They do have a bit of scratch-ness as stock. I really recommend lubing them before use."

Great muted Switches!

Exactly what I wanted at a good price. I like the sound, and the difference in the "Silent" version is the deeper, muted sound I wanted. The switches are a little scratchy when stock, and the housing basically stops all the RGB. I am likely to buy an RGB version later.

Good for price. needs lube

Gateron KS9s are one of my favorite non-silents, but these didn't quite fit the bill as a silent version of those. They feel a bit scratchy so the difference is probably just a matter of getting some lube. Didn't notice any stick in 70deg temps like some other reviewers have mentioned. Ended up choosing durock dolphins. If they'd just make a black crystal v2 in silent yellow... I'd go for that too.
