It is comparison.
Although there was no necessity of usually comparing, since it was using Complicated, the comparison picture was also prepared.
The case of a switch adopts how for the same outside as Cherry MX to carry out.
Complicated is not compatible with ALPS. The size is also delicately different.

It is very hard to remove a switch. A thing like a pipe in a leg is solder.
It was not able to be sucked up whether it entered into the substrate.
A special feature is linear and bottoms out at 60 g.
Since it did not measure when it turned on electricity, exact load is not known.
It discarded except the substrate of a keyboard.

I was not able to specify the manufacturer of this switch.
The character on the back side of a switch is not related.
The left-behind hope becomes a stamp of a mystery.

Video control panels are a interesting and relatively unexplored topic. Sony made some nice ones as well, don't know which switches they used.

Wow nice find. Never seen that switch before and I don't recognise the logo either. I wonder if AU stands for 'Aperture <something>'?

Since the character currently written to the reverse side of a switch changes with lots, it is not that it is consulted.

Ahh yes I see now, 'AH' and 'AU' -- you're right.
No idea...a good mystery for Beardsmore to solve :)

How weird! Those switches are a hybrid of Cherry MX (shell) and Mitsumi (switchplate).

The AG-A850 sounds nice, too — deep and metallic.

I have no idea what that switch is; I have assigned it a code [wiki]USw LABW01[/wiki].

looking at scareface's keyboard photos in his archive on that other forum (was posted about here on DT, I can find the topic if you can't) there are lots of other ones as well. I distinctly recall one with honeywell hall effect switches in it, I believe it was also SONY branded. I am sure that hirose (cherry japan) can claim some.

Scarface is that Korean geezer with the most user-hostile website the world has ever seen, right? I gave up with it — you couldn't make it more difficult to run it through Google Translate if you tried (every angle is blocked), and the URLs all suck donkey dick. The content needs to be moved to the Deskthority wiki; until such time, he can keep his stinking website.

HaaTa bought a similar Panasonic video editing controller a few months ago, after I had the seller pull a cap and noticed the switch wasn’t in the deskthority wiki. I’m not sure he’s done any documentation yet though.
