Do you have some special switches in mind? Which ones would you recommend?

I actually meant that as "branded" d2fc's, but If I was comparing an Intellmouse with some "good" d2fc's opposed to a Logitech 518 with some average ones, there's a good chance I'd still prefer the 518 due to it's shell construction.
You're right, but Omrons feel like Omrons even with compared to TTC and Huano. smile.gif
actually shell designs can change the feel of hitting the buttons... and I think they may change the button of the switch a little bit 2 fit the shell of the mouse too.

Switches themselves have different tolerances. I already mentioned that the shell can change the amount of travel and feel.

Everyone will still agree than an omron is an omron though^^

As far as I know, most/all current Razer models use D2FC-F-7N...

It's SS which cheaps out using TTC in its Kinzu and Kana.

I would recommend the Omron D2FC-F-7N - reliability is not everything.

Even though there are several models featuring extra good reliability with 20M life cycle I prefer the D2F.

What good is a 20M switch if I dont like the click feeling or find the sound annoying?

You are right - but hey you get a nice braided cable instead smile.gif.

I meant more TTC as brand - afaik Razer was the first gaming brand relying heavily on TTC encoders and switches for extra buttons.
The main buttons are in Razer so far always D2FC.

I have to say also that razer always cheap out on thier mechnical encoders, steelseries had some ALPS over the years and if not ALPS they use some very nice cheanise based which have very simmilar quality and feeling to ALPS... I have to rep them on it, SteelSeries really do a great job on the build and the feeling of thier products, not all of them though, but you know...

can i use a different micro switch? the spring on my omron just snapped, so replacing it is my best bet but can't find any omron switches locally, and I don't want to pay a huge fee for the transfer biggrin.gif
