Good little read on these switches

I've typed on a corsair and I loved the experience. My biggest issue with it is that I can only find US and UK layouts available which is upsetting. The article you've mentioned is really helpful. Thanks a lot smile.gif

Yea that is a problem it seems not a lot of keyboard companies are using the MX Silver switches yet, I did find out that Vortex is. I am actually typing on a Race 3 with silver switches, not sure of your keyboard requirements but maybe try mechanicalkeyboards.com and sort the keyboards by their switch type and see if you can find one that suits your needs. Thats if you haven't already done this lol

Can't go wrong with a Ducky they are quality I have been wanting to pick one up but I am a stickler for desk top foot print. If you don't mind DSA or 75% caps check out the Vortex Race 3 I love this things foot print and feel it is built like a tank.

i havent tried that lenovo laptop keyboard, but im sure you wont have the same feeling.
Maybe the pressure point could be equal, but the length the standalone keyboard key travels when you press it in comparison to the shallow laptop one is, id say, at least double, and definitely changes the way you feel when typing.

btw I have das keyboard model s ultimate with mx brown

Reviving ye ole thread here..

Has anyone noticed any degradation in quality in cherry mechanical switched?

My first cherry keyboard lasted years not a single issue ever.

I got a new keyboard last year because I wanted heaps of macro keys, Runs red cherry switches just like my first.
But this one started chattering on multiple keys within a couple months, got a replacement and it did the same thing.

So rather than get the same keyboard again (I figured it was the manufacturer not the switch causing the issue)
I got a completely different brand.... same deal cherry reds... started chatterinng within a couple months..

So now I'm thinking it may be the cherry switches..

Am I crazy? or is there validity to my insanity?
