PG1280 is a series of metal contact switches from Kailh. Based on the product photographs, it appears to have Cherry MX-style switch contacts. The product colours of red, blue and brown imply linear, clicky and tactile versions.

As with the i-Rocks switch, the switch colour is provided by the shell instead of the slider; the slider in all three types is translucent plastic, and this may be intended to offer better keycap surface illumination without requiring a proprietary keycap mount, as is the case with SteelSeries QS1 and other similar Kailh designs.

Bounce time is cited as 5 ms or less, at a keystroke rate of 3–5 keystrokes per second.

At the time of writing, no individual switch part numbers are known.
