Types of Mechanical Switches

 

Mechanical keyboards are becoming increasingly popular, thanks to their superior feel and performance over traditional membrane keyboards. One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a mechanical keyboard is the type of switch. There are three main types of mechanical keyboard switches: linear, tactile, and clicky.

 

 

Linear Switches

 

Linear switches have a smooth and consistent feel when pressed. There is no tactile bump or click, just a smooth travel until the switch actuates. Linear switches are often preferred by gamers for their fast and responsive feel. They are also a good choice for people who want a quiet keyboard.

 

Some popular linear switches The Kapco offer include Outemu Red, Outemu Black, Leobog Rock Lee, Leobog Graywood v3, Gateron Yellow & Silver and more!

 

 

Tactile Switches

 

Tactile switches have a small tactile bump when pressed. This bump provides feedback to the user, letting them know that the switch has actuated. Tactile switches are a good choice for typists who want to feel a bit of resistance when they press a key. They are also a good choice for people who want a keyboard with a bit of noise, but not as much noise as a clicky switch.

 

The tactile switches TheKapCo offer include Outemu Brown and CIY Primaris Asura Switch

 

 

 

 

Clicky Switches

Clicky switches have a tactile bump and a click sound when pressed. The click sound is created by a small plastic piece that snaps into place when the switch actuates. Clicky switches are often preferred by typists who want to be able to hear each keystroke. They can also be a good choice for gamers, as the click sound can help to confirm that a key has been pressed.

 

The only clicky switch The KapCo offers is the Outemu Blue.

 

 

How to Choose the Best Switch for You?

 

The best way to choose the best switch for you is to try out a few different switches and see what you like best. You can often find switch testers online or at your local electronics store.

 

Here are a few factors to consider when choosing a switch:

 

  • Your typing style: If you are a heavy typist, you may want to choose a switch with a heavier spring weight. If you are a light typist, you may want to choose a switch with a lighter spring weight.

  • Your use case: If you are a gamer, you may want to choose a linear switch for its fast and responsive feel. If you are a typist, you may want to opt for a tactile switch for its feedback.

  • Your personal preferences: Ultimately, the best switch for you is the one that you like the feel and sound of the most.

 

 

Why Choosing the Best Switch for You Is Important

 

Choosing the best switch for you is essential as it can heavily impact your typing and gaming experience. A switch that is too heavy or too light can be uncomfortable to use, and a switch that is too noisy can be distracting.

 

The right switch can make your keyboard feel more responsive and satisfying to use. It can also help to reduce errors and improve your typing speed. If you are serious about your keyboard, it is worth taking the time and effort in choosing the best switch for you.
