    Issue is that optimal switch is bottomed out 1mm after actuation point. My keyboard has switches which have early actuation point too. But then they bottom out as any other switch. So release of key takes longer. It is unpleasant trade of properties.
    I make a lot of typos because of that. Double letters are problem too.
    If it has some special construction preventing you from using rubber rings like on mine, then this may prove to be nice keyboard with unpleasant flaw.

    I kinda like how to looks...

    "shivers in regret after saying such a blasphemous thing about a Razer product with RGB of all things" :eek:

    Fully agreed on this. I have large heavy hands, and "light" switches result in frequent missclicks / typos in my case. Hate it.

    My go2 switches are Cherry MX Black / Topre 55g. Latter one being absolute love, however expensive as HELL.

    Just stumbled upon this today, looks very Neat!

    On my previous Razer the switch was destroyed pretty too early for a mecanical switch (around 2 years of intensive use)...
    i have bought back a ducky channel (Cherry MX switches) it's less cute but way more reliable.
    Lot of company have their own switch but Cherry is still the best around (with those semi mecanical used in HHK too)
