Staff comments

This is a sample set of switches that covers the recently released switches to some extent.
The pedestal of the switch is 10mm acrylic, so there is no rattling, and the feel does not differ depending on the mounting location, so you can concentrate on the test firmly.
The acrylic on the pedestal is also highly transparent and beautiful on the desk as it is, so I think it's fun to click when you have a little time or want to calm down.

How to use the switch tester

Here's a little advice for anyone trying to choose a new keyboard switch with this switch tester.
Instead of clicking directly on the switch shaft with this tester, please try it with the keycap attached.
If you don't wear the keycap, you may be worried about the rattling that you didn't care about, or you may feel that the tactile feeling is different.
Depending on the profile (shape) of the keycap, the sound may be heard differently, so if possible, it is more accurate and satisfying to wear the keycap that you actually want to use.
Also, if possible, it is better to attach rubber feet to the four corners so that you can concentrate on the test because there is no reflection of vibration from the desk.

Switch test points

After attaching the keycap and attaching the rubber feet to the four corners, it is finally the switch test.
The points of the switch test are summarized below.
You can feel the difference more by checking each point rather than hitting it casually.

  • Try to hit as usual
  • Try to hit hard
  • Try to hit it weakly
  • Try hitting with another finger
  • Try pushing the end of the keycap to make a stroke
  • Check the glare by pressing the corner of the keycap with your finger without pressing it.
  • Shake the keycap while pressing it to check the glare.
  • Check the glare with a long key of 1u or more

When evaluating the switch, pay attention to the following points.

  • Is it a weight that can be pushed comfortably?
  • Is it smooth?
  • Isn't there a sound that you care about (close your ears)?
  • Is the glare (before and while pressing) acceptable?
  • Does the strength of the tactile suit your taste?
  • Does the bottoming sound suit your taste?
  • Is the return sound acceptable?

By paying attention to the above and testing, you will be able to find a switch that suits you.
I think there are other points that I value, so please try them out.
