Before buying your next lot of Cherry MX mechanical switches, wouldn’t you rather pick the perfect type based on feel than settle on descriptions? Giving you an aluminum baseplate outfitted with six types of Cherry MX switches and clear PCB keycaps, the Cherry MX Switch Tester lets you order a sampler plate before going all in on one menu item.
The Cherry MX Switch Tester comes with the following colors: Black, Red, Brown, Clear, Blue, and Green. Traditionally used by gamers due to their low activation point and lack of tactile feedback or clicking sound, Black switches feature an actuation force of 60 g while the Red switches require only 45 g. Giving you a slight tactile bump and a slightly more audible click, both the Brown (45 g) and Clear (55 g) switches feature balanced design that allows for satisfying typing without raising a ruckus. Finally, Blue (50 g) and Green (80 g) switches come with strong tactile feedback and enough audible clacking to recall the tip-tapping of a typewriter.
