Cherry MX Ergo Clear
|This article requires photographic illustration|
The Ergo Clear switch is a modified Cherry MX switch with a slider from a clear switch and a lighter spring. In the original recipe the spring is from a brown, red or blue switch but the denomination is also being used for switches with third party (Korean) springs.
The switches are usually made by enthusiasts by combining parts from other switches.
On request, Cherry has stated that they would actually produce Ergo Clears in a slider-colour of choice, provided that they get an order of at least 750,000 switches. Among keyboard enthusiasts there is a controversy, whether such switches should be called "beiges", "pinks" or "violets".
Somewhat like the Brown switch, but with a bigger, longer tactile bump.
Some users have described that they experience "sticking", with the slider having difficulty to get back up again past the tactile point. Sticking could be reduced with lubrication or by choosing a somewhat stronger spring.
