The novelty cream is special customized switches by Novelty.It's linear switches,
Featuring housing and stem that is made out of self lubricating POM, this linear is a smooth and unique experience. The switch is also a first for Kailh, as it features MX style latching for the housing.
NovelKeys Cream - Linear | 4mm travel | 2mm operating | 55g actuation | 70g bottom out
it's a decent switch for sure. No need to pay resale though as these restock regularly and stay in stock on amazon for a while.
I ordered some Novel Key Cremes to try out. First, they feel extremely linear in their houses. I could only feel the bump after I opened and gently lubed the spring. Sounds weird, right? The is nothing wrong with these switches, but they were not for me. Even after some Krytox 203, they felt really stiff, but they do sound good.
Zealios are really hard to find so I cannot comment directly on how they are a community favorite. However, I was intrigued by the reviews on Youtube and decided to purchase this one. This one was sent standard shipping but the package got to me 2 weeks earlier than the date range. I have to say this company is top notch. This is the fourth buy including the Kailh Burnt Orange switches and the GK61 diy keyboards and everything was packaged nicely to protect the product. Anyways, these switches actuate early and is linear until you bottom out. The tactility is more subtle than the Kailh Burnt Orange but just above a Gateron Brown. I think it is very smooth. The Cherry MX blues and the Kailh Box Jades are still my favorites but I do like the diversity of the tactile switches like the Burnt Orange and this Pro Purple. I am not sure over time if I prefer these switches or the Burnt Orange as my favorite tactile switches. I think for some enthusiasts or gamers who love linear switches, these may be the ones. I find myself bottoming out more often when typing then the Box Jades or the Burnt Oranges. My only negative thought is that these switches, unlike the box switches, have a little wobble.
Not much difference from a outemu brown switch. Keep in mind that actuation distance isn't a lot and feels mushy when bottoming out. I play osu with these switches but I like to bottom out, so these weren't exactly for me. Shipping to US took a long time but that's to be expected coming from China. Used these switches on my redragon k556 but they don't quite fit, as the keyboard originally used outemus, but it was easy to make the pins thinner so it can fit.

I had gotten these switches (speed silver) about a month ago and wanted to give it some time before I went writing anything. Thoughts so far is that these things actuate the very instant the stem starts to depress. Might put some people off but for my uses it works just fine. Fair warning though, there's some switch wobble, so if that's not your thing, I'd look elsewhere.
The switches have been awesome in a number of the keyboards I put them in.
Amazing feel to these switches! Came faster then expected so give 2 1/2 weeks for me. Love the feel of that push back, making them feel heavy. Honestly was skeptical but these are the real deal! Thank you! Will be sure to get some more soon!
changed from blues. fast actuation, quieter than blues with no click but the switches can be accidentally pressed as they are quite light and resting my fingers on top will press the switch
Pretty nice switch if you like clickies, I'm not really into them though. Slightly weird how actuation is above the click but it's only a very small amount. These switches feel very stiff to me as I'm coming from MX reds, they must be at least 60g actuation I'm sure.
Bought these for osu! and they're really nice. Very clickly just how I like it
The switch pins are too big to fit into any oteamu and cherry mx keyboards, but the switches feel nice
