Linear Switch Force Comparison

By Xah Lee. Date: .

Gateron Red is lightest, my favorite.

here's keyboards i have and the switches on them.

Note, Kailh Red has 50g force, while Gateron Red [see Gateron Switches] Cherry MX Red is 45g. That's a very noticeable difference. I know because i have Gateron Red in X-Bows Keyboard and Kailh Red in Ultimate Hacking Keyboard . I much prefer the lighter ones.
