Gateron Browns are probably your best bet if you want to save money but still have a high quality switch. Cherry MX Switches are one of the most popular brands of key switches. Each key switch has been designed with a specific function in mind, such as precision or speed. MX Red: There are a ton of different brown switch options out there. Let’s take a look at the most popular ones and talk about the specifications and benefits of each switch. Cherry MX Brown Type: Tactile Kailh Box Brown switches are a cool option because the actual shape of the stem is a bit different.

Regardless of the type of Gateron switch, you can rest assured that you will get a 50 million keystroke lifespan for each switch. Gateron is known to have some of the smoothest keystrokes on the market. These switches also have an actuation force of 27g, along with a pre-travel of 1.3mm. Kalih Box Brown:The switch has a small tactile bump which makes it good for accurate typing and programming, although it may not be the best option for gaming. Cherry MX switches aren’t the only ones on the market these days. In fact, many gaming keyboard manufacturers like Razer now often make their own proprietary mechanical keyboard switches, and other companies like Gateron make switches for other manufacturers to use, just like Cherry. The Gateron Brown switches have an actuation of 45g which means the keypress is light, and you don’t have to worry about fingers getting fatigued during your keypress. Cherry MX Browns are an excellent option if you can afford the price and want your keyboard to last forever. Gateron Brown Type: Tactile Brown switches are excellent for programming. The tactile bump helps limit mistakes which can increase the speed at which you enter data.

The main lineup is based on the Cherry MX switches, while the rest are more adventurous and interesting. Gateron has designed several additional switches such as their own silent switches, milk switches, ink switches, and low-profile switches. We’ll explain the differences below. The Main Line-Up COLOR Operating Force – this refers to the force required to make the key press down and register the keystroke to the computer. I.e.: how hard you must press the key. This measurement of (cN) refers to centinewtons. Gateron switches are said to have a smoother keypress than Cherry MX switches out of the box, but Cherry MX switches often become just as smooth over time after being broken in, and some people prefer the slightly scratchier feel of Cherry MX switches. Gaterons also tend to have higher actuation than Cherry MX switches. Ultimately, personal preference dictates the victor of this battle, too. Red vs Blue vs Brown Switches Optical switches have a different feel than mechanical and for that reason they can feel strange to use. They tend to feel a bit hollow and fake.Activation Point – this indicates at which point the switch is pressed down hard enough to translate information from keyboard to computer. Most switches will have an actuation point of around 2mm unless the switch is low-profile, in which case the activation point is shorter. This pressure point is measured in millimeters (mm). I recorded a couple of audio clips to give you an idea of the sound differences. I installed both switches in my Skyloong GK61 and recorded them with an Audio Technica AT2020. First up, the Cherry MX Reds: Many actually prefer to use a switch that has been broken in past the 100 million keystroke mark because the switch will feel less scratchy and better overall. If you’re looking at Gateron switches though it’s hard to pass up on the linear switches, due to the smoothness. Glorious key switches are available either lubed or without. If you opt for the lubricated variant, then the switches have been primed for an extremely smooth typing experience. Whereas, if you wish to customise and specifically tailor your key switches to suit you, you can select them to come without and apply the lubricant yourself. To aid you with this, Glorious even have their own dedicated lubing station. Glorious Panda:

The hallmark differences of the Ink switches are the clear smoky housing, different plastic material, lower pitch sound, and smoother feel.The tactile bump on the brown switch can be distracting if you are attempting to press as many keys as possible in a short period of time (AKA button-mashing). The brown switch can limit the accuracy of your keystrokes.
