#1
Before introducing various key switches, novices can first understand the basic knowledge of these switches.

Paragraph sense:
When we finish hitting the keyboard, there are two processes, one is when it is pressed, and the other is when it is lifted. The feel of a general keyboard refers to the strength of the feedback the keyboard gives our fingers during the process of pressing down and lifting it back And the force feedback changes in real time during the whole process of hitting the keyboard, so the part that gives people the strongest feeling is what we call the paragraph sense.

Key travel
This is easier to understand, that is, when we press the keyboard, how deep the keys can be pressed. The length of the key travel is related to the feel of the keyboard. A keyboard with a longer key travel will make people feel full of flexibility, but it is more laborious; a keyboard with a longer key travel will make people feel soft and comfortable.

Pressure in grams
Pressure in grams is the amount of force required to press a key.The force feedback of the mechanical keyboard is mainly provided by the spring, and the elastic force of the spring determines the pressure of the switch in grams.

blue switch
Total stroke: 4mm±0.5mm
Trigger stroke: 2.2±0.6mm
Initial pressure: 25cNmin
Trigger pressure: 50±15cN
Paragraph pressure: 60±15cN
Bottoming pressure: 60cNmin
The green switch is the most popular axis among the little whites who have just come into contact with the mechanical keyboard. It has a more obvious sense of paragraph. Bottoming out 65g, the burden on the hand is not too big, suitable for long-term use. The disadvantage of the green axis is that it is noisy. Maybe you can hear the sound of the buttons at first, but it will really become noise after a long time. So Cherry green switches are very suitable for newbies who live alone or who are planning to buy their first mechanical keyboard.

Red switch
Total stroke: 4mm±0.4mm
Trigger stroke: 2±0.6mm
Initial pressure: 30cNmin
Trigger pressure: 45±15cN
Bottoming pressure: 60cNmin
The red switch has no sense of paragraph, it goes straight up and down, and its key pressure is one of the smallest among the several. Its biggest feature is that it is very light. . The overall pressure profile is relatively smooth. The entire pressure from triggering to bottoming is very soft, making it more comfortable for both typing and gaming. This type of shaft is suitable for people who plan to use it for a long time and do not easily replace the keyboard.

Brown switch
Total stroke: 4mm±0.4mm
Trigger stroke: 2±0.6mm
Initial pressure: 30cNmin
Trigger pressure: 45±15cN
Paragraph pressure: 55±15cN
Bottoming pressure: 60cNmin
The feel of the brown switch is between the blue switch and the red switch. Although the brown switch has a sense of paragraph, it is not particularly strong. It doesn't sink too deep and feel too slow to rebound, nor does it get stuck halfway through and feel like it doesn't bottom out. Its sound is also much smaller than that of the blue switch. The brown switch has sound but is not noisy, suitable for people who play games and type in office.

Black switch
Total stroke: 4mm±0.4mm
Trigger stroke: 2±0.6mm
Initial pressure: 30cNmin
Trigger pressure: 60±20cN
Bottoming pressure: 90cNmin
The cherry black switch is a linear switch. The keys are straight up and down. The rebound force is more obvious. The pressure continues to increase. And the lack of paragraph sense and the sound is low. Bottoming out at 90 grams, the pressure is significantly heavier. It can also be said to be a vigorous version of the red switch. The black switch is suitable for people who have strong fingers, like to play games, and do not need high-frequency typing.

In general, from the point of view of the pressure gram index, black switch > blue switch > brown switch = red switch; from the total stroke and trigger stroke, black switch = blue switch = brown switch = red switch, so in the four In terms of the intuitive feeling of the shaft body, the black switch is the heaviest.
