Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I wish I could've titled this red vs blue(good lord i should be sleep right now, curse you adhd meds)

What's the main difference between cherry reds and cherry browns?

The reds don’t have a tactile bump so they are smooth all the way down, while browns are more similar to blues in that they do have a tactile bump, though they are quieter than blues.

off the top of my head, specific spec may be wrong (like actuation force and actuation point, but it's relative):

red = linear with 45g actuation force

blue = tactile, clicky, 50g force

brown = tactile, non-clicky, 45g force

black = linear, i think 60g force?

silver/speed = linear, 40g force, 1.2mm actuation vs 1.5mm on other switch

The REDS are linear while the Browns are tactile. Basically what @Moonzy said.

Reds are linear, not smooth. No cherry switch is smooth except lubed vintage blacks.
