You might have already heard about TTC switches being discussed in the community of mechanical keyboard fans.

So, if you want to know about the TTC switches review and a complete guide on the switches, types, and more, this is the right post.

While reviewing, I would consider all the aspects that would matter much for typing and gaming. 

Let’s begin the post!

What is a TTC switch?

TTC switches are transparent cases (except the Watermelon Milkshake variant) MX style mechanical switches of Tactile and Linear types.

The TTC switches are the TTC Bluish White switch, TTC gold pink switch, the TTC Watermelon Milkshake switch, etc.

TTC switches review

TTC switches aren’t that popular and still niche.

The only reason they aren’t that popular is that Cherry MX switches are much more common!

TTC switches offer a unique experience for typing enthusiasts looking to find a perfect match for their typing needs. 

However, there is a reason why people like TTC switches.

The reason is that they tend to last longer and the price is low. 

However, the main reason is that they don’t require as much force to activate as Cherry switches.

While Cherry switches are bouncier and give a better tactile feel, which is the main reason why they’re so common, it is always a tradeoff. 

The TTC switches have a clear casing which I like very much.

This comes in handy, especially when you will use an RGB keyboard.

These transparent casing switches will emit much light, which is a great thing to consider.

Types of TTC switches

There are several Tactile TTC switch variants:

  • TTC Bluish White Switch
  • TTC Watermelon Milkshake
  • TTC Gold Brown V3 switch

Also, you get several linear variants TTC too:

  • TTC Gold Pink switches
  • TTC Golden Blue switches
  • TTC Golden Red V3 switches
  • TTC Silent Red V2 Switches

Build Quality

The TTC switches’ quality is excellent and durable enough for your gaming sessions and even when playing competitive games.

The load capacity, and number of clicks durability is good for TTC switches.


If you’re reading this, chances are you’re a typing enthusiast.

TTC switches are the best things that have ever happened to your fingers. 

TTC switches use gold contact leaves and soft plastic stems, making an unparalleled, smooth typing experience.

TTC Gold Pink 37g, TTC Silent Red 45g, TTC Golden Red 43g, and TTC Golden Blue 37g come with linear feedback. 

For those looking for more tactile feedback, there are TTC Bluish White 42gf with a notably high actuation point and the 55g force TTC Watermelon Milkshake and TTC Golden Brown. 


TTC switches are designed to provide an unparalleled typing experience.

They are tactile and linear, making them suitable for both gaming and typing.

TTC switches are also available in many colors, including the ever-popular pink.

If you’re looking for the next step in mechanical keyboard switches, these gold-contact switches might be it.

With a smooth, soft leaf that makes for an unparalleled typing experience and several different options for feedback (linear and clicky, with and without audible feedback), this might be the switch for you.

My View

Overall, I liked the TTC switches variants very much.

I liked the tactile variant over the linear ones of the TTC switches as I prefer having tactile feedback from my clicks.

I would recommend going for linear if you play a lot of FPS games.

One downside I found is that these switches sound a bit scratchy when clicked and can be fixed by lubricating them.

So, once you need to add some lubrication to make it smoother, these are good switches and look good when used on an RGB lighting setup.

Sure! The TTC is great for beginners and pros alike.

They are good ones considering an average user using it for gaming and typing.

Also, being budget-friendly is a great thing to have.

The gold pink switch is a linear mechanical switch with a low operating force, i.e., 37g only, and has a pre-travel of 2 mm, which is good. Gold Pink switches are good for gaming.

TTC gold pink switches are linear types of mechanical switches with an Operating force of 37g.


Let’s conclude the post on TTC switches review and complete the guide.

TTC switches have a lower price as compared to the Cherry switches and are good in the budget.

However, they feel a little bit scratchy while typing.

If that does not matter much, then this would be a good switch for you.
