Cherry VS RAZER VS Outemu VS Generic
Today we’re going to be taking a look at tactile clicky switches and I have four different ones in front of me we’re going to be talking about them and comparing them a little bit now I have the classic cherry MX Lu this is it a thermaltake mega Pro keyboard I have the newly overhauled Ranger green switch this is an a Razer BlackWidow X I have the Altima blues in a first player fire rose and then I have some no-name Chinese knock up switches and these are in a tumble Co I 500 and basically what we’re going to be doing today is talking about the specs talk about how this would just feel and also compare the price versus the actual overall quality of the switches okay so the first thing I want to start out with to just talk a little bit about the switches spec so the Cherry MX blue switches been actuation force of 50 grams it has a actually consistence of 2.2 millimeters and a total travel distance of 4 millimeters now the Razer green switch is kind of geared to be more gamer II than the cherry MX blue and basically all they did was they still have the 50 grams actuation force and they slightly shortened B actually some distance which is how long the switch needs to actually 5.3 millimeters so it’s 1.9 millimeters to actuate the Razer green switch now moving over to the out team of Blues these are advertised as being at 50 grams actuation force and they basically copy the cherry MX blue switch and have the same actuation and travel distance one thing that’s important to note though is these switches do feel a little bit heavier than 50 grams than they say and I’d say they’re probably somewhere more like 55 to 60 grams so that’s something just to keep in mind in terms of the comparison now going over to these switches I don’t even know who makes them they’re unlabeled no-name switches and I just thought it would be interesting to compare them to some of these other branded switches so I don’t really have concrete specs for you but I can tell you they do feel about somewhere around 55 to 60 kind of like the out team is but they’re a little bit chunkier okay so going up that let’s go ahead and just talk about how they actually feel and perform so starting with the cherry MX blue switch other sand a sermon take Mecca Pro if I just type on it a little bit the cherry MX blue switch is just a really light feeling tactile clicky switch it’s nice and solid feeling there’s really not a lot of wobble in the keys they’re very solid and that’s one thing about Kerry switches that I’ve always liked so their sister it’s not a lot of key wobble to them and they just have a really really solid actuation now if you compare this with the Razer green switch that I have over here you can even actually hear a little bit of a difference and that lightness of the click of the blue switch that I’m talking about and these are a little bit higher pitch versus a little bit lower pitch in the Razer switch now the Razer green switch compared to the Cherry MX blue is a lot makya and so by that I mean the actuation the bump that you feel in the tactile bump is a snappier feeling and you even feel that in the clicky mechanism that’s in there too because as a click in the sherry switch is a lot quieter and it’s like a nice little little quiet click versus this snappy feeling and sound of the Razer green flip so if you like a lot trickier feeling switch you’ll probably like the Razer green more now the Razer green does have more wobble to it then the Cherry MX blue does by quite a large margin they’re very wobbly so that’s something to take into account too but as far as the actual clicky mechanism I like the mechanism on the Razer green switch more now coming over to the Altima blue switch like I said these feel a little bit heavier and they’re kind of in-between the feeling of the Cherry MX blue and the Razer green in that they are a little bit snappier feeling than the terry emic blue switch but they also have this sort of like crunchiness to them and I’ve always said that our team use switches are by far the best budget switches that I’ve ever used you know you’re going to for this out team with keyboard versus about for this cherry MX keyboard and about a for this razor keyboard so price of course is going to be something relative that you’re going to need to consider when you’re looking at all these keyboards but just with that in mind the alkane mini for fantastic buy and then going over to these no-name switches they’re a noticeable difference between all the other ones and kind of excuse a word I used earlier they’re very crunchy feelings and they’re very snappy a very harsh tactile bump and it’s just overall not the best experience and I would always recommend going with a brand that you know if you want to stay on the cheap go without Teemu I’ve personally used all four of the main types of ou t teaming switches so your blues Browns blacks and reds and they’ve all performed a lot better than I thought at least I’ve raised the first two switches and then I kind of expected good things from them so I wasn’t as surprised but they just function really really well they get very close to the quality that you get from curious which is at about half the price if not more but I think the main ones that you guys are going to want to know about are the Cherry MX blues versus the razor greens and in this sense I think I have to give it to the razor green switch and the reason for that even though it does have a little bit more key wobble is that overall it’s just a much nicer typing experience that’s a nice quickie snappy feeling without being too crunchy and the Blues are just they’re just a little too light for my taste and carry you know it’s no secret they’ve been having issues with the cherry MX blue switch or the last couple of years which is why you haven’t seen it on a lot of the bigger brand gaming keyboards that’s why Corsair doesn’t have it on the k95 platinum just because for whatever reason cherry has run into some issues with them I think they’re resolved now but there was a dry period there where you couldn’t get cherry MX blue switches on a lot of keyboards and for some reason I don’t know if there was a QC issue or something but they just were having issues with it so if you guys are looking at purchasing a quickie tactile keyboard I think right now the way to go is to go with something with a newly overhauled Razer green switch so that I’m talking about the Razer BlackWidow chroma b2 and the Black Widow X and if you’re looking for something a lot cheaper the LT mu Blues are also very good as well now I’m also going to do a quick sound test back-to-back of all the keyboards so that you guys can take a listen to them and kind of see how they sound all together so now that you card have the switches found I just wanted to kind of do a comparison for you guys of all these different types of clicky switches to kind of help you decide which one you should get I hope you guys enjoyed the video if you did give it a like and let me know in the comments down below what you think about this new style of video for me and also
