Stats and figures are one thing but here are some quotes, thoughts and opinions we've been able to find from across the web regarding these switches.
A new and improved iteration of the first POM-on-POM switch that brings with it a fun feeling and sound.
The difference between these and the Gateron Inks is the sound. The inks are very quiet, and have less of a bottom-out sound. The Creams have more of a muted clack when the key hits the base. Its subtle, but the creams are definitely slightly louder.
If you want super quiet go for Gateron Inks, but if you like the buttery clack of a perfectly lubricated switch then the creams are perfect.
Being an all POM switch Creams are pretty smooth anyway but there is some noticeable friction. A small amount of Krytox 205 Grade 0 works well on these.
