I have the Mountain Everest Max with Cherry MX Red switches. I like the very quiet sound of it when pressing down a key, but dislike the pinging sound when releasing the key. So I want to replace these switches.
I have earlier written a review about the Mountain tactile version, not sure why it is not visible. Conclusion was I would have been very good if the quality would have been consistent. But because it isn't, some switch still makes a pinging noise.
So I wanted to give the linear version a try. I expected that it would be quieter than the tactile version. But it isn't really. It is quieter than a Cherry MX Brown, maybe slightly quieter than Cherry MX red and muchg louder than Cherry MX Silent Red. So that was disappointing.
Unfortunately also the linear switches the quality is not consistent at all. I tried some and there are too many with a pinging sound.
Therefore I decided to return it and keep the Mountain tactile switches for the time being.
The Mountain switches are better for the RGB compared to the Cherry ones.
