It seems to me that the normal mouse buttons use normal mouse switches (Omron micro switches). Somewhere on the mouse, however, the marketing department has placed one special "'attack key" sporting a Chery MX blue switch with the sole intention to trick kids into buying this mouse.RC-1140 wrote:But I wouldn't want a mouse with a Cherry MX switch.

Mechanical keyboards all are designed to allow you to type without bottoming out to activate the switch. They generally (not always) rely on metal contacts and a spring in an individual switch. Capacitive circuits are included in this guide as well as buckling spring switches which use a spring/hammer mechanical action to press a membrane switch. Although they don't use metal contacts to close or open the switch they share having a mid-point activation in the switch travel. The end result is a switch with longer key travel and a precise feel.
