The technical data of a switch can be hard to understand. Our goal here is to demystify how these specs affect feel and sound. We hope this helps you discover whether or not a switch might be a good fit.

Bottom-out: 63.5g

Bottoming out, or pressing all the way down, on this Wuque Studio WS Silent Linear switch requires 63.5g of force. With a heavier bottom-out than 65% of switches in our selection, the Wuque Studio WS Silent Linear is considered medium-heavy.

A switch's bottom-out force is dependent solely on its spring weight.

Factory Lubed

The Wuque Studio WS Silent Linear is factory lubed. This is done to reduce friction and improve the feel of the switch. Other effects include reduced noise and if a tactile switch, slightly decreased tactility. Choosing a factory lubed switch saves you time and energy from having to lube the switch yourself. Factories have drastically improved the lubing process over the years, meaning more and more factory-lubed switches are great to use out-of-the-box.

Top and Bottom Housing: Nylon

Nylon is the Wuque Studio WS Silent Linear's top and bottom housing material. Nylon is a classic switch housing material. Typing on switches that use nylon elicits a deeper and fuller sound profile. In part, this is because nylon is a relatively softer plastic and absorbs more sound than harder plastics, thereby creating a duller and rounder sound.

Mount type: PCB (5-pin)

The Wuque Studio WS Silent Linear is a PCB (5-pin) mount switch. PCB-mount, or 5-pin, switches feature 2 extra alignment pins when compared to their 3-pin counterparts. This ensures alignment (i.e. switch won't rotate and will stay in place) if your keyboard does not feature a plate or if you choose not to use one. If your keyboard's PCB does not have holes for these alignment pins, you will need to trim them off before installing them.

Stem construction: Partial box

Switches with a box stem reduce wobble in two ways. One is through an aesthetic enhancement by reducing resting state wobble: this makes it such that gaps between your lines of keycaps are more straight and won't appear jagged.

Second, box stems have a stricter x and y-axis tolerance as you press down.

Switches with box-shaped stems are also technically more dustproof and water-resistant.

(Although neat in theory, at Milktooth, we do not think the latter two features are very consequential.)

Descriptors

#muted

A muted mechanical keyboard switch produces a softer and quieter sound compared to a regular or clacky switch. Muted switches minimize the noise typically associated with mechanical keyboards.

#subdued

A subdued switch produces a dampened sound when pressed. It's not completely silent per se, yet it is also offers a more subtle sound signature when compared to most switches.

#mild

A mild mechanical keyboard switch offer a more gentle typing experience compared to switches with more pronounced characteristics. With these switches, the sound and feel will be approachable to most, as its qualities all stand in a safe, middle-ground zone.

#neutral

A neutral switch has a moderate actuation force requirement and a moderate sound profile. This makes the switch suitable for most intents and purposes: whether or not you are a beginner or advanced, or if you are planning to use these at home or work.
