yap I needed some time to get used to this keyboard. The leds are extremly bright and the keyboard is a bit thicker. But Quality wise its a really good keyboard. And I never found a review about dying leds like with the Corsair K70.
I feel like the CM Storm series is the only good mech keyboard for around 100 euros in the EU.

Suprisingly people in skype told me they found the sound from the mx blue better than the mx red. For myself I love this noise! It has sometimes a "ping" sound but I guess this is normal. Or is it? I dont know.
And I have no problems with double tapping.

The red version seems to exist in canada, asian and germany as far as I know.

Anyone have experience with the new "Razer Green" switch?

Looks like a Cherry MX variant by its picture but I am no expert. Just curious if this is Razer PR or actually something worth looking into, and how it compares to other switches.

No, it was just announced and released

Hey guys,

I noticed that Razer just said that they made their own mechanical switches that are "meant for gaming". While I find that assertion to be silly marketing, anyone has any thoughts if these switches are any good? I've personally only played with Cherry MX switch keyboards, including the Cherry MX Blue switch inside my Razer BlackWidow (pre 2013) keyboard.

Thoughts?

Probably Kailh switches from what everyone is talking about. IMO overpriced over the tried and true Cherry MX switches.

Almost definitely Probably Kailh switches, with "our own engineers on the factory floor to ensure better than "other company" quality control." Still, should have been much cheaper, not exactly the same price, and they should have mentioned it on the box. Calling it "Green" and not saying what they really are is a bit off. We are in the post MX erra now folks. If it does not say Cherry MX its not Cherry.

Now that Cherry patent is expired, all the clone factories in China can make their own switch. I just hope it makes Cherry come out with something new and special soon, more than multi LED switches tongue.gif And figure out better quantity control. No need for running out or limited availability.

That said, I am typing this on a Topre. LOL Suckers with you "switches of colour" soon you will join me! (insert evil laugh here)

I am having a hard time finding the main keys one color and the control, alt, windows, ****, enter, tab, etc another color.

Anyone know of a company that sells them in packs like that?

You could make your own set on WASDKeyboards.

I need honest opinions from people who have Blue/Green keys with O rings. Do the O rings reduce overall noise?
