Here we tell you about the different types of switches that can be found in keyboards mechanics:
- Network switch considered by many as the best switch for playing video games and ideal if we want to perform double tapping on a recurring basis. It is faster and more sensitive, and the typing sensation is very smooth, its high responsiveness to pressure makes it the ideal choice for those more experienced players who know the position of each key perfectly. Its sensitivity is very high, so it is recommended for gaming but not for typing. It is one of the keyboard switch types the most suitable for gaming as it is the fastest for pressing the same key once or twice repeatedly. Their lifetime is usually very high (50 million keystrokes).
- Switch blue ideal for people who prefer high speed accompanied by a louder sound. It is more comfortable and accurate if you need to embark on long sessions of use without resenting your fingers. Perfect for blogging, social media, online magazines... Out of the three keyboard switch types is the most suitable for typing, due to its speed and its characteristic sound, which simulates that produced by a typewriter. On the other hand, if we want to be precise in our games, the switch blue is undoubtedly our best choice. Its lifetime remains high (20 million keystrokes)
- Switch brown smooth and balanced performance. Considered the keyboard switch type in-between. It is suitable for both gaming and typing. It is characterized by being the quietest switch of all. Like the network switch, it allows you to quickly press one or two keys in succession. It is an all-terrain switch and has a very long service life. Perfect for those who are looking for a keyboard that allows them to perform at their best both in their gaming sessions and in all other activities.

A standard keyboard usually has between 102 and 105 keys and a 60% keyboard usually has between 61 and 62 keys. The right side of the keyboard, which includes the arrow keys and some keys and the entire number pad, is omitted.
This type of keyboard takes up much less space on your desk and has its origin in the gaming world. This type of keyboard is created due to the fatigue that occurs in video game players after long gaming sessions. One of the main reasons for this fatigue is the player's own configuration. Using a 60% keyboard can prevent shoulder and wrist pain because it is easier to adjust the position of the keyboard without colliding with the mouse
