From their page:




The only possible significant difference I can spot is the tactile bump on the Razer Orange looks bigger than the one on the MX Brown, but it would take an actual side-by-side comparison of the switch to verify.

Doesn't appear so, the Cherry branding isn't in the usual place.

If I had to make an educated guess, Razer are doing this so they have the freedom to make their own RGB mechanical switches down the line, instead of having to wait for the exclusivity deal between Cherry and Corsair to finish.

EDIT: That being said, the leaf spring design looks identical, so they may have those in common with Cherry, however the actual switch casing looks significantly different.

I saw those a lot when I was in S. Korea a couple of months ago, really cheap though as I assumed they were more informed consumers out there

As I understand it, these green switches will be like a mx blue but with the same actuation and reset point. That was the only problem with the MX Cherry Blues for gaming it was very hard to spam the same key because you'd get caught in the dead zone and the key wouldn't always reset. Browns on the other hand were too soft and didn't have the same actuation force of blues.

If greens have the same actuation force of mx blues but a very short reset/actuation distance. I'd pick one of these up.

Not thinking this is correct information unless you have a source..... As the guys pointed out above it looks like they are more similar to Cherry switches. Guessing they are having someone else manufacture them.

I think its a matter of preference really. You'd have to pay me money to use a Keyboard with Red switches.. I can't stand them. I also can't stand blue clicky switches either, I found the perfect balance with the MX Browns.

This new switch sounds a lot like a red switch on crack.

I looked through it. I actually saw it on reddit a few days ago when it was posted. You can't just assume that's who they are going to have manufacture their switches when no one has any information yet as to if that's the case. You are posting it on the forum as if it's fact where as no one really knows yet. That's how false information gets spread around on forums so easily.

unless razer secretly opened up their own manufacturing plant to make a knock off of a knock off....

its basically the strongest argument, it is not a cherry switch. fact.
