Switch: Gateron BOX Ink Black V2
Operating Force: 60g
Pre Travel: 1.2mm
Total Travel: 3.4mm
The same material as the popular Gateron Ink V2, the Gateron Box Ink V2 Switches improved its design and upgraded its linear experience with more flexibility and smoothness to offer you a brand-new typing experience. The 5-Pin switches are fully compatible with 5-Pin MX mechanical keyboard hot-swappable versions with 2-Pin LED without modifications, which will give you extra stability when typing or gaming.
Short Travel-Distance, Fast Actuation
Expanding on the original Ink V2 switches, the Gateron Box Ink Switches incorporate a shorter travel distance (about 3.4mm) as well as a black-plated spring for a fast rebound. Compared to other ordinary mechanical switches, the Box Ink Switch is lighter and triggers faster.
Long Operation Life
20mm (Box Ink Black) plating black springs and brand new anti-oxidation gold contacts improve the oxidation performance and guarantee the switch for about 60 million cycles.
New Appearance Design
Featuring a smoky-transparent housing and opaque colored dustproof “Wall” stem, this mechanical switch has less stem wobbliness than other gateron switches, which makes it more stable when typing. The newly ink black and ink pink physical design also adds a little mystery to this switch to add more enjoyment when typing.

I really like this switch, being a leftie and playing a lot of simulator ETS and ATS I use the right side of the board for steering, I find them a bit heavy to use for that, hence the four stars for overall.
