Razer mechanical green switches?

According to the Corsair/Cherry Q&A on Geekhack, they're not Cherry switches. My money is on Kaihl, who is not known for reliable switches and have switches that routinely have the stem break off in the cap.

There's a ton of pseudo-science marketing (come-on, if you're floating the keys like most gamers do, 0.3mm will not make a difference...or a speed difference at all for anyone), but they also moved to a different company than Cherry. My bet is that they got pissed off on Corsair's brief exclusivity for the RGB MX switches since their main user base are those that love flashy gimmicks and decided to find some other gimmick to compete.

I bet that they're using Kailh (Kaihu) for their switches. Kaihu claims a minimum of 50million actuations (which doesn't hold true in real world usage) at minimum, so Razer probably went for a higher average lifespan. The Kaihu Blue is a 2.0mm travel to actuation, 50g of force switch, so it's probably a slightly modified version of that.

All I can say is good luck with Kaihu Razer, be ready for people to start lumping you in with MadCatz.

It is impossible to make a clicky switch more "gaming" oriented, leastways the way Razer is doing it.

Two of the most common problems clicky mechanical switches face in gaming is hysteresis and chatter. Making the actuation point 0.3mm higher does not make for a better gaming switch, not when the reset point is well above the actuation point (hysteresis). Tactile-nonclicky and linear switches are better since they have a more consistent and lower reset point than any clicky switch with a slider. They are also far less prone to chatter and accidentally actuating multiple times with one press.

I wasn't reasoning for them just saying what they said.

So just gauging interest here (not making any promises or suggesting anything)

Say I were able to obtain in volume, the housings and shafts for the new Topre switches used in the Novatouch TKL, and the Topre TypeHeaven keyboards (the ones with Cherry MX compatibility) how many of you would be interested in purchasing them, and how many would you purchase?

I don't think OCN really allows group buys. We had a fan one that took absolutely forever and didn't go well, and I'm sure the vendor that just scammed a bunch of people doesn't help either.

I dunno if it'd even really be a group buy...

WASD Keyboards UV printed keys are extremely durable and very resistant to wear under normal use. While they aren't indestructible, you can easily expect several years of use before any sign of wear compared to laser etched keys which can begin to wear within months.

Unfortunately not, I picked up a few neat ones, but nothing amazing. I have enough plain blacks for two, possibly three boards now. Gonna start converting them shortly. smile.gif
