The only difference that matter is key stroke length and height of point of actuation. Every single other characteristic is gimmick used to gather gullible sheeps.

No they aren't - they are ever so slightly faster in theory but in reality the difference is meaningless - all comparisons show that.

For instance Razer advertises its optical switches having a 30% respectively 16,67% shorter accentuation point than regular mechanical switches.
But the time required to press is so short, that we are talking about a theoretical 0,1-0,2 ms difference.

As others pointed out, you are way better off, identifying the type of switch you prefer and to focus more on keyboard build quality.
