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.
