However they are quieter and the lifespan of the Matias switches is longer, with 50,000,000 actuations (compared to the original spec of the classic white Alps, which was 10,000,000 actuations).
The Matias Quiet Tactile Switches are quieter than other mechanical keyboards, and have a sound level similar to a regular non-mechanical keyboard, they are quieter for two main reasons:
1) The switches have internal rubber sound dampeners, that drastically reduce the impact noise on the downstroke AND the upstroke.
2) The metal tactile leaf on the quiet switches is held stationary to eliminate the click noise. On the clicky switches, it's loose.

Great price and quick delivery. Which is absolutely great and unexpected since its probably the only shop in Europe with these switches.

The ALPSMatias is THE tactile switch.

Somewhat scratchy if not lubed.

Distinctive audible ping due to being otherwise silent.

So happy with it - using the 2nd of two keyboards I've built with one 200 pcs and 9 single switch packs (209 with some spares in total).
Highly recommended.

The shopping was a breeze - went in, cart, payment and the goods arrived perfectly packed and somewhat earlier than expected!

One perfectly satisfied & returning customer :D

Some people are concerned that MatiasALPS are switches of subpar quality or things like that - let me reassure you it is quite the opposite:
I had the 2 key miss contacts and behave for like 2 weeks after initial build - and every time substantial force would yield one or two characters in the end.
As time goes on it has been broken in and works as flawlessly as any other of the 104 keys on that keyboard.
The other board ran 100% error free from the get go.

They just break in for a week or two.
(I'm a years long original black ALPS SCKM user so i would know by now - it's their specific thing)

I had a cleaning accident with my Matias keyboard and had to replace one broken switch. As always, Keyboard company delivered great service. I cannot recommend them enough!

Hard to replace in the Matias keyboard, instructions are not readily available (someone should make a video of how to take it apart). Some soldering experience required, but that wasn't a problem for me. The switch is working pretty well, no reason to give less than 5 stars. (A greater problem was that I did not have proper soldering equipment at hand)

A difference that I noticed between this switch and the stock switches (that came with my keyboard) is that this switch has a tiny dab of transparent plasticelasticrubbery material at the bottom where the shaft would touch the bottom of the key, as if it is extra dampening. I guess this is a change Matias made to this design since I bought the keyboard in 2015. I bought 5 switches now, and this difference was present in all of them. I do think it is a small improvement.

Keyboardco delivered overseas more quickly than expected, everything was frictionless and package arrived in good condition

Would buy again!

Keyboard Co has been my rescue, when it comes to needing the right switches in case something broke. Very fast shipment and good prices. Sadly this will likely be my last order since ordering from outside the EU will likely make it too expensive and complicated :(. Best to you, I hope the UK will be okay on its own.

The switches themselves all seem to be in great condition. I only had to replace one for now but ordered several.

Speedy delivery in great packaging.

Thumbs up all around.

Great quality and prompt delivery, the matias quiet click that I use on a Keyboardio are awesome.

Great quality! (require some (de)soldering experience)

Great switch, especially the new generation that has less inconsistencies and wobble. Also, the packaging, delivery and all-around service was excellent. The only thing I was missing is an option for a 100 switch pack - sometimes 200 is too much..

All in all, both Matias products and the Keyboard Company are highly recommended.
