Hey everyone, it's MONSTER R here, and today we're going to dive deeper into mechanical keyboard switches. We'll be discussing the three main categories of switches: linear, tactile, and clicky. We'll also be highlighting some popular examples of each type, so you can get a better idea of which switch might be right for you.



Linear switche  provide a smooth, consistent keystroke without any tactile feedback or audible click. Linear switches are often preferred by gamers who require quick, precise keystrokes without any distractions.

Tactile switches provide a tactile bump when the key is activated, giving the user a sense of feedback. Tactile switches are often preferred by typists who enjoy the feeling of feedback when typing.





Clicky switches switches provide an audible click when activated, in addition to a tactile bump. Clicky switches are often preferred by users who want a satisfying and audible feedback when typing.

Of course, these are just a few examples of each type of switch, and there are many more options available on the market. Other popular switches include the Gateron Yellow for linear, the Zealios for tactile, and the Kailh Box White for clicky.

Ultimately, the best switch for you will depend on your personal preferences and needs. If you're a gamer who needs quick and precise keystrokes, a linear switch might be the way to go. If you're a writer who enjoys tactile feedback, a tactile switch might be the better option. And if you want a satisfying audible feedback, a clicky switch might be the best choice.


In conclusion, mechanical keyboard switches come in a variety of types, each with their own unique characteristics. It's important to understand the differences between these switches and choose one that suits your needs and preferences. Hopefully, this guide has helped you get a better understanding of the different types of switches available, and has helped you make a more informed decision.
