Keyboard looks good. Snap on the laptop front (I win both) and your phone wire is making a lovely ampersand sign. Good work!

There's a fair bit of propaganda on that page. Our special switches (mx copies) last for 60 million keystrokes compared with 20 million for a typical mechanical switch.

They even ripped off the cross section diagram.

Call it what you like, the keyboards are still plastic hell.

I suspect Razer are fed up of paying premium prices for German made switches so have opted for Kaihua or some similar OEM to make much cheaper ones for them. They'll probably be fine, but you can rest assured they'll be cheap, and the keyboards shiny.

I once sat and pressed an MX red fifty million times. On the fifty-million and first press, the switch disintegrated and my curtains caught fire. The ensuing inferno levelled an entire street of houses. It's comforting to know that I would have been able to achieve another ten million presses with the new Razer designed switch.

Nick - at what rate (in approximate strokes/sec) did you press the switch? Just so I can schedule in the appropriate amount of time to recreate your experiment.

to the best of my knowledge, Kaihua haven't made clicky switches - they make linear cherry clones, I have never seen one that clicks. But then I have only seen blue red and yellow ones. It's just a 50g blue, and the orange switch is just a 45g linear switch.

Yeah I noticed the claims about a standard mech switch only lasting 20 million presses - and the thing is, up until now I am pretty sure that razer have only used cherry switches in their products - so what is this standard mech switch?!

I would be all over those orange linear stems though hehe

Matticus has a bunch of blue Kaihua - get him to post some pics, we can compare

They're certainly aiming at a very specific niche. Gamers who want a clicky switch but want a slightly lower reset point than blues for fractionally easier double tapping. Anyone who cares about such things - and for the record Razer, League of Legends players like the one you have there probably don't - just uses a linear switch anyway.

I never could understand why it was that Razer chose blues for their keyboards. Browns I could understand, if you wanted to be sure you've reached the actuation point, and they don't have the double tapping issue to boot, but blues? How are you going to hear the click over the sound of the game?

Anyways, I'm surprised there aren't some patent issues with such an obvious Cherry clone?

gaming on blues is sweet! Gaming on blears is next level, I love a good tactile switch for gaming.

Lest we forget though, this new switch will have been specially commissioned by Razer, probably in huge volume. I'd be astounded if the OEM wasn't Chinese.

It depends. The portfolio of patents which covers the MX switch technology may now all be expired - without checking, I'm not sure what their earliest (and indeed latest) filing date is. I raised this very question with Margon earlier on actually - there's a chance that these boards will be doomed to failure either because they are a bit crap, or (or indeed and) the switches are an infringement of Cherry's rights.
