The Cherry MX2A Silent Reds are such an improvement over the originals! The Originals I found to be a little too scratchy and the bottom out felt really mushy. With this new revision you get factory lube which gives the switches a very nice smooth feel, I can't say how long this will last as I have only been using them for a few weeks but long term I'm sure these will just getting better with break in.

I find the bottom out a lot more satisfying as well, it might be the new spring but I don't find the bottom out to be mushy, these switches feel amazing and the dampening silent them enough for calls without effecting the feel as much.

If you want a silent switch, you can't go wrong with these!

I will say though, a few of the switches came with bent pins, these are easy to bend back but a plastic container would have been nicer (but probably increase cost) , I use a 60% so I have enough switches left in the 110 pack that these should last a good few years!
