Does this come assembled? These things need to start being specified, Massdrop! So many drops are unspecified, in terms of assemble. What if I didn't want to place all different kinds of switches, but wanted a macro board?

Nothing against Massdrop since they're not the manufacturer of this, but I honestly don't understand the point of having RGB versions of the same switches in an unlit switch tester. There are plenty of other Cherry brand switch options (MX Blacks, MX Nature White, MX Speed Silver, etc) that could fill out those slots. As it stands you're paying for a nine switch tester that comes with six different switches. Not a terrible deal if you want to source your own switches to try several of the same type at a time, or hand wire this into a macro pad, but there are a lot of other switch testers that currently offer a better value than this.

Agree with your sentiments. In their defense, this includes only switches that CoolerMaster ships with their keyboards.
It is easy to remove the switches and plop in your own. It's also a pretty good value for a plate + chassis to build into a macro switch. I think I have a photo of a disassembled unit from some time ago if you scroll down. Not easy to take apart, but not too hard if you have the right tools.

Got it few days ago. Not really cool. It come without any notice, so you don't really know the characteristic of each switch. Plus, some switch are duplicated which is totally stupid for a switch tester. As a result, it doesn't worth the price. Quality is good. Very difficult to remove caps by hand, which is bad for a switch tester where you could think of changing switch more often than on a keyboard. Layout is also not good for a tester. Maybe a line switch layout would allow a better isolation of the feeling of one specific switch. That square layout is not good for a switch tester and moving switch is a nightmare (see previous point). I've seen previous comment where the box need to be opened to move switch but no tool is delivered to allow this. I'm not able to do this by hand. My conclusion : bad realisation of a good idea.
My suggestion : a 5 to 10 switchs square hole in a line, easy to move around and change + a set of 20 switch. A metal "n design bar" with no back or bottom. From behind, with no tool one can push switch to remove it very easily without tool. Add laminated notice that details all 20 switch characteristics =>that would be a great switch tester.

Great looking case and I love that they've included the silent red/pink switch... but the 3 RGB switches are all redundant... soooo stupid.

Hrmm, that is a problem. I'd rather have Black than Silent Pink!.

Step one: Obtain switch tester. Step two: Spend money on keyboards.
