Gateron KS-3 X1 Pro

Quakemz spoke highly of it in his latest video:

So I got some from ThocKeys. Cheap too.


I get confused with the Gateron names - are they similar to the milky Cap Yellow V2s?

Made by same company, very different switch however. KS-3 X1 Pro seems to be better Gateron Yellow. I’ve read that Gateron CAP v2 is very nice also.

These look like the milky housing equivalents to the Gateron Pro Yellows that our friend the goat reviewed here. I bought some and they’re still in my queue of switches to properly test in a board but initial impressions were good.

They’re quite smooth, particularly for a budget switch and wobble is impressively minimal. For what they cost, I don’t think you can go wrong with them.


Shipment tracking from ThocKeys remain stuck in “Label Created” status for a full week now. Going to give them another week before worrying.
