What is cherry mx white anyways? I can't seem to find any info on them other than that they're the same as blue, and if that's the case, why do they even exist? To make RGB shine through better?
They're not the same as blues. The click is much less audible and the bump is less pronounced and less crisp. Light won't shine through any more than in other MX-switches btw.
Hmmm, that actually has me interested. I love my Gateron blues, but if there's an even lighter clicky switch I may have to try it, haha. I wonder if there's any tenkeyless keyboards that come with cherry mx whites, or would I have to solder one myself? I've just recently gotten into the whole keyboard world and I don't wanna try making my own yet, but that sounds like a very interesting switch indeed....
The Varmilo VA87MR has dropped with Cherry MX Whites before. That's one of the only pre-assembled boards with whites I remember seeing recently. It will probably drop again, but be prepared to wait a while. They're a pretty uncommon switch, and most often only available in kits where you would have to solder them yourself.
There are a handful of people who said that Whites have a weird tendency to not have a uniform click. I'm still debating whether or not I should go for Whites just because of that reason.
Also, it's pretty easy to procure those switches locally from where I'm from.
You should buy them, and make a board with them for.... KEYBOARD SCIENCE!!
Just got my tester today and yeah, I found the White switch to be very unpredictable! If it were more consistently clicky, it would be my #1 pick for sure. Will probably end up going with the MX Greens with O-rings.
Oh, so there are times that clicks are absent? Is that what you were saying?
Edit: Mine arrived at my freight forwarder, just going to wait 'til it gets shipped here in the PH. haha
white switches are told to make "softer" sound than blue or green with 80g of pressure. maybe the click sound is buried by the bottoming sound.
