It's about a keyboard switch called as the smith corona leaf springs but more commonly known as possibly the worst fucking keyboard switch to ever exist.

And its a review on that specific keyboard switch. I wouldn't even consider it a keyboard switch. It barley even does what it's been manufactured to do. From the 3 keyboards I've ordered with the same switches, all of them were completely dysfunctional as I thought, really it's just a fucking shitty keyboard. It's well beneath any rubber dome fuck waffle and deserves to rot in fucking hell.

I have became an atheist because of this keyboard switch. God forbid anybody has the logic to say this is actually *cringes* good then god literally doesn't exist.

A review is generous, more of a rant. I still have no idea what this switch is like really which is kinda important for a review. Also, why would you buy a second one if the first one was as bad as you say? Why would you think every single switch on the board was dysfunctional? Let alone then going and buying a third

dude. The switch is in the title. Also the keyboard looked really fucking nice and I had no idea what switches on them they were ( they were cherry mx compatible through some digging ). I found out they were smith corona leaf springs and I looked at reviews and they all pointed out the same thing. "Ahhh the keyboard is so shit" and what not. But no, they weren't passionate enough. That "the keyboard is so shit" didn't fully describe the experience I've had with this absolutely horrendous monstrosity that dwells deep beyond the depths of hell itself.

Nope, its just garbage. I'm pretty sure they made typewriters but they were different switches. Even if they weren't different switches it doesn't change the fact that there garbage.

There specialty keyboards that they manufacture ( which keep in mind literally look the fucking same with same switches ) are 140 bucks.

just came off as kinda odd to me

Believe me it isn't exactly the same but it is similar in terms of complexity in words. But the actual words themselves are different. I was inspired to make a more passionate review about these switches. I was more specifically inspired by this youtuber to make a more passionate review. And I have tried the switches myself and they are indeed pretty fucking bad. Probably only a word in there was similar, apart from that the majority of it is my own words.
