Which push button illuminated switches?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I need to figure out which illuminated push button switches I need for my new build. Any suggestions? Are they all the same these days?

I found these:

Going to do a blue & green combo.

Ali Express for that kind of stuff.

Look at the ones around $2.

That's good advice, but rather deal with a place like performance Tha. A dealer on Ali to save a few bucks.

And I want to make sure I get a high quality switch, so hoping someone can suggest a particular brand.

I find that the parts sold on Ali Express are not cheap parts. The labor to make them is though. I've seen many instances where the exact same part a reseller was selling was available for 1/10 th the cost.

So I bought the 22mm Modsmart switches and they're smaller than I thought, yet seem to be the biggest performance offers.

I have a ring illuminated switch on my Origen HTPC case that's almost twice the size in diameter.

Anyone know of larger high quality aluminum illuminated switches available?
