This new old stock Dell features black Alps. How do they feel?
Heavenly. Black Alps are far from the best Alps around but for my money still better than any MX-style tactile switch if you get them NOS, and with a simple modification they become 10/10 linears – TheGodmonster.
Yeah, linearized, they feel surprisingly nice... otherwise I find late black Alps to be dreadful, like when some people complain about MX Brown feeling as if there was sand inside, in my experience that actually describes the late black Alps' weird bump combined with the Alps' inherent bump at the bottom (so even linearized they're not entirely linear) – Schemik.
