I'd like to join this drop but $22 is pretty steep for something that is essentially useless. I'd like to find out how each switch type feels since I only know reds but this is something I'd spend $5-$10 at most.
This is a much better fidget toy than those 15 dollar fidget spinners them darn tootin' kids have nowadays.
That's not the reason I have one of these, though. I've got it to carry around at school to educate others and spread awareness of superiority of mechanical keyboards.
The price is a bit steep for something of this caliber, but to each their own. I would rather spend 22 bucks than make a 100+ dollar mistake (ie. buying a cherry brown board) in the long run.
It's definitely to expensive. All switch testers are to expensive and I don't know why… You can buy full size keyboard for $40 with cheaper switches or $150 with cherries but it's ready to use product which require more resources than simple metal plate with holes. Maybe it's time to make sampler kits only with switches. I check price for single cherry mx switches in few places and it can down up to $0.6 per switch, other should be even more cheap. In this case you can get many different switches for less than 10 bucks…
Problem is you won't have them mounted, therefore you won't be able try them as they would feel on a real keyboard.
I have switch tester and it's not comparable with any mechanical keyboard which I own. It's only switch tester, real keyboard feel different because switches are mounted on PCB, with different plates, key caps and cases and all these elements have impact on final feeling. Also typing on keyboard with all your fingers is quite different experience than clicking single switch.
There are probably many peoples like me which already have tester plate and just want to try other switches.
I heard u can solder and wire it to make it functional macro keys, I don't know if it applies to this set, but this is what I've heard... take this with grain of salt though, xD
Cherry Brown, a mistake? How dare you.
