After using mechanical keyboards for so long, do you really understand the difference between these mechanical keyboards?
Why some keyboards feel hard, some keyboards are comfortable to type, and some keyboards are suitable for playing games.
How do you distinguish
the difference between the different colors of the shaft? This article will explain to you the cherry mechanical keyboard.
At present, the mainstream mechanical keyboard has four colors, each color corresponds to a different structure, and then produces different effects, including sound, pressure and feel.
The reason why the four kinds of shafts produce different sounds is mainly due to the structure of the switch cap.
After being pressed by the fingers, it rubs against the contact metal sheet and deforms and collides with each other to produce sound. The red shaft is similar to the black shaft,
which is a linear shaft. Therefore, the source of the sound is the sound produced by the friction between the plastic and the contact metal sheet.
The green shaft and the tea shaft
are paragraph shaft bodies, and the switch cap of the tea shaft contacts the metal piece of the contact at the convex part and produces a slight clicking sound.
The cyan axis is special. The sound is like the snapping sound of a ballpoint pen when it is pressed. During the pressing process,
the white part contacts the contact metal piece, causing the metal piece to deform and the position of the white part also changes. It separates from the cyan part and then stops. Utilize the pressure of the metal sheet to close with it, so as to make a crisp “click” sound.
The second is the difference in pressure, but due to the different structure of the switch cap, the pressure generated is divided into four stages,
Namely initial pressure,
trigger pressure, paragraph pressure, and bottoming pressure (the bottoming pressure is because the official website does not give accurate data ,
So we will not discuss it), and the four kinds of shafts have different button pressures mainly depending on the spring and the switch cap.
Among them, the trigger pressure of the green axis is the smallest, and the rest are the same. The trigger pressure of the black axis is the highest,
followed by the green axis, the tea axis, and the red axis. The paragraph pressure only exists between the green axis and the tea axis.
The black axis is more focused
on giving the user a straight up and down, tactile feedback without pause,
and the rebound process is dry and powerful. In layman’s terms, it gives people a feeling of directly pressing on the spring with their fingers.
The red shaft can be counted as a lightweight version of the black shaft.
The same straight up and down without a pause in the touch, the rebound is softer and softer, and the feel is similar to squeezed cotton.
The typing feel is continuous, pressing Feel light.
The tea axis is more focused on giving users a kind of tactile feedback with a slight click and a weaker sense of passage, and the rebound feel is similar to the red axis.
To put it more generally,
it combines the soft feel of the red axis and weakening.
The new sense of paragraph of the green axis, taking into account the characteristics of the two,
but not exactly the same, taking into account the typing and office workers,
belongs to the universal axis,
but slightly noisy, but not too strong, and the whole stroke of the tea axis feels like bungee jumping.
The green shaft, as one of the representative shafts with paragraph structure, can also be said to be the shaft with the most mechanical keyboard characteristics.
It can bring users a kind of click and click, strong paragraph feeling tactile feedback. (Continuous tapping is called “Papa Papa”),
the rebound process is slightly paused, and in general terms,
it is similar to the snapping feel of a ballpoint pen when it is pressed, forming a sense of percussion rhythm during long-term recording.
The green axis and the black axis are more suitable for game users. If it were you, how would you choose?
