The First Step to Create Your Own Mechanical Keyboard

Keyboards have come a long way. They initially originated from the slow and clunky typewriters but have since then become the fast and highly reliable tools that we have today. And with the advancement of technology, keyboards, and key switches continue to evolve.

 

 

Mechanical switches are the core of every mechanical keyboard. They are responsible for creating their unique feel, sound, and even the smoothness of typing. Mechanical switches are what allow signals to be inputted to mechanical keyboards. They can be found underneath each key on the keyboard since mechanical keyboards are built with individual switches. One of the reasons why plenty of typists and gamers prefer mechanical keyboards and switches is that they can customize them.
There are three types of mechanical switches that are defined by their keystroke behaviour:
Linear switches: Smooth and consistent keystroke with a quiet noise.
Tactile switches: A small bump on each keystroke with a moderate noise.
Clicky switches: A small bump on each keystroke with a loud click noise.

 

 

MX stands for Mechanical X-Point. MX switches can provide a reliable lifespan with over 50 million clicks without losing input and quality. Different keyboard manufacturers also widely use it in their gaming keyboards because of the high demand for the quality of keyboards it produces.

 

 

Here comes our newly arrived mechanical keyboard switches tester collection. This kit is designed to achieve the actual feel of a real Cherry MX switch mechanical keyboard by mounting all the actual switches on a specially designed model. The transparent acrylic switches tester will help you decide which switch is best for you.
