Re: How Cherry has fallen

There are many factors that affect the performance of the switch. I believe that even if you compare a NOS switch of the 1980s with a new switch, there are differences.

Those caps are also made by Cherry but some of them have a weird top, I wonder why those are different. I would wager that they are key caps that light up and are made of translucent plastic. It would be a dashboard, of sorts. That's an interesting thought. I hope that the buyer is on dt and makes ...

As for MX-Alps Clicky and Linear, Most news about it shows that it is related to Taiwan. Cherry does have distributors in Taiwan-Greendich. I have contacted Greendich but have not responded.

Yes,Except for the key cap of the M4 switch, the others are doubleshots. I am sorry that I forgot to mention it. My focus is often on those switches on the keyboard.
