What types of mechanical switches are you using?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I was going back to the time when Corsair decided to discontinue their line of Cherry MX Blue RGB switches and I was feeling the pain and sadness again, even though I can't afford it. Then I remembered that Corsair James on his forum mentioned that contrary to popular belief, Cherry MX Blue switches are actually really outsold by other switches such as Cherry MX Reds and Browns. So I wanted to see for myself, because many gamers and streamers I see on YouTube all have some sort of clicky switch, which I can only assume to be Cherry MX Blues.


BRRRT!

I love my K95 RGB with browns, but I wish I could have gotten it with blues. Too bad Cherry had issues with them and had to discontinue them for the time being. I hope they find someway to fix the issues they were having with them cuz I would love an RGB keyboard with blues.
