Every switch shown in the order of the list they appear in. Every row is a different make/brand. Cherry - Gateron - Aliaz (technically Gateron but not listed as Gateron) - Kailh - Halo (technically Kailh but not listed as Kailh).

I like having a variety of switches for comparison purposes and I don't mind paying up a bit for the convenience of having switches on hand that I would never buy otherwise, but this 'sampler' really needs to come with an acrylic base, legend and translucent keycaps. And yes, a Holy Panda would be a nice addition to the set, especially in light of the recent unpleasantness wrt Drop (formerly Massdrop) HOLY F'ing Pandas.

Need a key so we can tell which switch is which. Maybe a picture with a name? I can identify the following switches:
  1. Cherry MX Blue
  2. Cherry MX Brown
  3. Cherry MX Red
  4. Cherry MX Silver
  5. Gateron SMD Red
  6. Gateron SMD Blue
  7. Gateron SMD Yellow
  8. Gateron SMD Green
  9. Gateron SMD Clear
  10. Kailh Box Navy
  11. Kailh Box Jade
  12. Kailh Pro Purple
  13. Kailh Pro Burgundy
  14. Kailh Pro Silver

That leaves 6 switches that I have no idea what they are. They are all labeled as Gateron and Kailh. Does that mean I did not receive that Aliaz or Halo switches? My best guess for names are:
  1. Gateron SMD Pink
  2. Gateron SMD Pink
  3. Kailh Mustard
  4. Kailh Brown
  5. Kailh Beige
  6. Kailh White

If it was 16 dollars, included the their version of the Holy Panda, I would get it. For 20 bucks I expect 4x5 tray. I went searching for the cheapest I could find each switch and the switches are priced as follows (add .03-.15 went attempting to purchace a single switch):
  • Cherry MX Blue RGB: $10 of 12 Cherry switches| .83+.12= .95 cents per single switch
  • Cherry MX Brown RGB: $10 of 12 Cherry switches| .83+.12= .95 cents per single switch
  • Cherry MX Red RGB: $10 of 12 Cherry switches| .83+.12= .95 cents per single switch
  • Cherry MX Silver RGB: $10 of 12 Cherry switches| .83+.12= .95 cents per single switch
  • Gateron SMD Red: $2 for pack of 10 switches| .20+.05=.25 cents per single switch
  • Gateron SMD Blue: $2 for pack of 10 switches| .20+.05=.25 cents per single switch
  • Gateron SMD Yellow: $2 for pack of 10 switches| .20+.05=.25 cents per single switch
  • Gateron SMD Green: $2 for pack of 10 switches| .20+.05=.25 cents per single switch
  • Gateron SMD Clear: $2 for pack of 10 switches| .20+.05=.25 cents per single switch
  • Aliaz Silent Tactile 60 g: $40 for a pack of 70 switches| .57+.08=.65 cents per single switch
  • Aliaz Silent Tactile 70 g $40 for a pack of 70 switches| .57+.08=.65 cents per single switch
  • Kailh Box Navy: $4.50 for a pack of 10| .45+.10= .55 cents per single switch
  • Kailh Box Jade: $4.50 for a pack of 10| .45+.10= .55 cents per single switch
  • Kailh Pro Purple: $2.80 for pack of 10| .28+.07= .35 cents per single switch
  • Kailh Pro Burgundy: $2.80 for pack of 10| .28+.07= .35 cents per single switch
  • Kailh Speed Silver: $2.80 for pack of 10| .28+.07= .35 cents per single switch
  • Kailh Speed Copper: $2.80 for pack of 10| .28+.07= .35 cents per single switch
  • Kailh Speed Gold: $2.80 for pack of 10| .28+.07= .35 cents per single switch
  • Halo True: $5.50 for a pack of 10| .55+.12= .67 cents per single switch
  • Halo Clear $5.50 for a pack of 10| .55+.12= .67 cents per single switch
So around 10.20 cents if all these switches were bought as single. You have to figure in your local shipping times however many times you ordered individually (but who's doing that, right?). These switches as is should already be being sold at least 4x times as much as they cost to make. Anyway, I figured I'd save people some time. Is this a good price just for the switches? I don't think so, but I only think the 87 switch tester for 55 bucks is worth anyway. I could understand about 15 dollars, unless it comes with a tray to hold them, which still wouldn't cover another 5 dollars, but hey, everyone has got to make a profit too.

Wow that's quit expensive, I know some of them switches here costs about 1$ or more than 1$ but most of it doesn't... Though this is really convenient way to try out multiple switches....

Without the holy pandas this is worthless to me... most of the switches here are cheap and easy to find in sample packs, whereas stuff like T1, Zealios, Holy Pandas would be much more relevant... especially given that the have holy pandas as one of the main items they sell.

For $1 a switch + shipping, I wish it included more premium switches to try. A lot of these switches in this pack range from $0.20 to $0.60 each.

I agree with you, but from another perspective it saves me buying 1 switch each and pay for its shipping or being forced to buy a set of switches and pay for their shipping. It helps to prevent regretting buying a full set I wouldn’t like or enjoy

I would agree if this was a more complete sample pack. You'd end up spending more getting sets of overlapping sample packs than if you were to buy a more complete switch tester. The recent kbdfan 72 switch that was even on Drop for less than $1 a switch comes to mind.

What's the chances of getting a Drop Holy Panda switch tossed with an order. Very hard especially in Canada to have access to a variety of PC gear. The closest thing to a computer shop is best buy where I live. We did have a computer store but it went out of business about 10 years ago. I'd even pay extra to have one of those switches added in. I really want to see if they live up to the reviews without buying a whole set, in case I personally don't like them better than what I currently use.

It's a hell of a lot cheaper than switch testers I've found in canada. Seems like a reasonable price to me, again in in canada so the exact same products are often 2x the price compared to US. We also have a fraction of the selection of products available to us. I've found identical products on line for less half what I'd pay in canada but when I tried to order them the companies tell me they aren't allowed to shop that particular item to canada. That's not even considering the 15% sales tax I have to pay on everything I buy.
