Gateron Box Ink Pink switches

Gateron Box Ink Pink switches reviewed by ThereminGoat.
Published October 18, 2021

This week, ThereminGoattake takes a look at the new Gateron Box Ink Pinks to see how they are and if they really are just Gateron Yellow Ink clones.

[Box Ink Pinks] make a great addition to the Gateron Ink family line of switches even if they don’t get nearly as much attention. While the short throw stems as well as the relatively light weighting may initially scare many people away who are looking into these, I would honestly encourage you to give these a try and especially so if you were interested in and upset by the performance of Gateron Ink Yellow V1s or V2s. These definitely are not just ‘the same molds as’ or ‘recolors’ of the Ink Yellow V2 switches. Albeit subtle, these are a much more polished, well defined, and well-constructed addition to the Ink line of switches than I think many people will give them credit for as the community at large begins to try them out.
