They are much more solid - Barely any key rattle (especially vertically)
Nearly indestructible - These do not break. The most common error is the wire snapping out, takes 2 secs to fix.

Why I prefer the Cherry ones:
1) They are much more solid - Barely any key rattle (especially vertically)
2) Nearly indestructible - These do not break. The most common error is the wire snapping out, takes 2 secs to fix. Compare that to Taiwan ones breaking in half - you are fucked.
3) Much better for frequent keycap swapping - It does not take two instructional videos and 20 minutes of work to get a shift key back on.
4) Much more forgiving to differently shaped keycaps. This is quite a big point. The Cherry stabilizers will take pretty much any keycap you throw at them. No matter of the material and stem size. The Taiwan ones are not forgiving at all, since they have to sit very tight in the keycap simply because of the way this design works. Some of the Black Widow spacebars actually have a tiny bit of paper between the stabilizers and the keycap, because they are so demanding for precision.
