    Since when Razer have their own mechanical switches? Those were Kailh and Greetech switches branded for Razer.

    I'm surprised their switches weren't red, green, and blue.

    Razer initially used Kailh Switches, but swapped to their own Razer Mech Switches.....IIRC.

    Great, now I will have to make sure any keyboard I buy does not source any parts from Razer.

    I will never support that company in any way because I still remember what they did way back when they made the $120 Boomslang mice that were horribly defective and then "went out of business" (went into temporary hiding) to avoid making good on the warranty when people started returning them. Shady, thieves. *Trump voice* Sad!

    I love all the marketing BS behind this crap, like you can't play games using a keyboard with anything other than some silly special switch and RGB backlighting.

    Sure, some have higher actuation points that will trigger before other more traditional switches, but realistically it's not going to give you an advantage over anyone with a "non-gaming" switch. I'll stick to my Cherry Clears thanks.

    Uh, excuse me, bro, but I gain 5FPS when I set all my LEDs to full-blast red, and I managed to reduce my CPU temperature by 15C when setting the heatsink's LEDs to blue. I have up to 500 RGB LEDs in my rig and anyone who stands in MY way is going to get rekt. I'll have you know that my reflexes are far better than the average person (if you don't believe me, ask ur mum), so every micrometer difference in actuation point enhances my noob pwning abilities to levels beyond pro. *drops mic*
