    As long as it's a momentary switch it'll work. Other than that all you need is the lead off an old switch to run to the mobo.

    In switching type, it says it's "Impulse function, piezo principle". :eek:

    It will work. I don't see any advantages over a standard switch other than they tend to be sealed and more robust. Other than that just wire it up as normal.

    They will work fine. It has no moving parts and only requires 1-3 newtons to be activated.

    Ive tried a capacitance switch before, it did not work as a standard momentary switch, not a piezo type, in the end i cba to work it out, i think i needed extra voltage input and stuff.

    So your right to querey it.

    I got my meter accross it etc, couldnt work the little bugger out, may of needed extra circuitry, found it easier to convert a momentary switch to a latching switch with extra circuitry, but for the hell of me, couldnt work out the capacitance switch, paid about £20 for it aswell.
