How to choose Cherry Mechanical Keyboard

By  Bartolemo Sade 2020-01-04 4465 139

Mechanical keyboard is the most popular codeword equipment at present, and it is also a standard peripheral for many game players. But the mechanical keyboard is divided into a variety of different shaft bodies, Cherry home alone there are dozens of shaft bodies, it has to be said that the choice of players is dazzling. For those who are new to the mechanical keyboard, how to choose the mechanical keyboard that is suitable for them? I think the most important thing is to start with the shaft.

For mechanical keyboard enthusiasts, the original Cherry MX mechanical shaft is the most trustworthy, but also where the faith lies. However, there are many original Cherry shafts, at least dozens of them. For novice players, how to choose a Cherry mechanical keyboard? Don't panic, although there are many axes, there are actually only four axes, namely, the red axis, the green axis, the tea axis and the black axis. Dozens of axes are derived from these four.

The biggest difference among the red axis, green axis, tea axis and black axis is mainly the structure, which leads to their differences in sound, pressure and feel.

1.   Red Switch

Linear shaft body, trigger key distance 2.0mm, initial pressure 30CN, trigger pressure 45 ±15cN. The reason why it is said that the red axis is a linear axis is mainly because it has no sense of segment drop when pressing, it is straight down and straight up, and the trigger pressure is smaller, so it needs less force when pressing, so it is suitable for long-term codewords or keyboard operators.

Although Red Axis itself is not very loud, Cherry has launched a special silent version for it. If you are not so obsessed with the "click" sound of a mechanical keyboard, the red axis is a more balanced choice.

2.  Black Switch

Linear shaft body, trigger key distance 2.0mm, initial pressure 30CN, trigger pressure 60 ±20cN. It can be seen that the black axis, like the red axis, is linear, but the trigger pressure is larger, so it is suitable for people who like the keyboard to feel heavier and need to press vigorously, but for most people, long-term use may make their fingers feel tired

The black shaft is estimated to be one of the four shafts, with the least number of users, mainly because it is easy to cause fatigue after long-term use, which makes many people think that it is difficult to use. In my personal experience, the black axis is not so unbearable. If you get used to its feel, you will feel that every word typed is "sonorous and forceful" (laughter).

3. Blue Switch

Paragraph axis body, trigger key length 2.2mm, initial pressure 25cN, trigger pressure 50 ±15cN, paragraph pressure 60 ±15cN, paragraph stroke 1.75mm. Although the trigger key distance is longer, the initial pressure is even smaller than the red axis, so it is easier to hit. However, considering that there is a sense of falling when pressing the green axis, it will make a "tick-tock" sound, which is similar to the ballpoint pen that presses the switch, so the sound will be louder.

Qingxian is a friendship judge, mainly if it is used in the office or dormitory, the loud sound is easy to affect colleagues or classmates, please use it with caution. If the environment permits, using the green axis is the most rhythmic like that of a mechanical keyboard.

4.Brown Switch

Paragraph axis body, trigger key length 2.0mm, initial pressure 30cN, trigger pressure 45 ±20cN, paragraph pressure 55 ±25cN, paragraph stroke 1.25mm. The tea shaft is the shaft body closest to the thin-film keyboard, because it has paragraphs but is not obvious, and the trigger pressure is also lighter. If you have just made the transition from the thin-film keyboard, it is more appropriate to choose the tea shaft. At the same time, the sense of falling is not obvious, which makes the sound made during pressing is less than that of the green axis.

Tea axis can be said to be a lot of fans, mainly because it takes into account the sense of the green axis and the quiet of the red axis, of course, its characteristics are not so obvious, or the characteristic is-the Doctrine of the mean.


Cherry mechanical keyboard these four shaft bodies are usually our most common shaft, but also relatively large shipments of the shaft, considering the mechanical keyboard pit friends can start from these four shaft, and more advanced friends, can consider some more special shaft, such as Xiaobian personal prefer to trigger very fast silver axis, typing comfortable, play FPS games efficiency is also high.
