The MECHLITE is available with your choice of blue, brown or red type mechanical switches so you can choose the keyboard feel that best fits with your play style and typing preference.
Blue switches (GKB710L) provide a slightly resistive tactile feel with a bump-like actuation point that makes an audible click when pressed, giving gamers that assurance of positive engagement.
Brown switches (GKB710L-BN) are quieter (less-clicky) and require slightly less actuation force than Blue switches for a lighter overall feel.
Red switches (GKB710L-RD) have no actuation click, making them even quieter than Brown switches and feature a linear design that provides the same smooth, solid feel throughout the full travel of the keystroke.
Unlike dome or membrane switches, mechanical switches do not need to be fully depressed for proper registration, allowing users to game faster and with less hand fatigue than with traditional keyboards.
The MECHLITE has a Windows key lock function to prevent accidentally entering menus while gaming, and an All-Key lock that prevents unwanted keystrokes when you have to make a run to the fridge. Left-handed gamers can swap the W, A, S, D and arrow key functions, so both hands are in an optimal gaming position. The heavy weighted base of the keyboard also increases stability while gaming, to prevent slippage.
