Series 6184[1] is a low-profile keyboard switch series from Marquardt; series 6184 followed the fairly similar Series 6180. All known switches are linear.

Description

Standard (non-LED) switches are all equipped with a diode, which is only visible if the switch top is removed[2]. Pictures of a disassembled switch can be seen here[2] as well.

The keyfeel of the Marquardt white (Linear) switch is similar to that of a Cherry MX Black, though it feels a bit stiffer.
