    switches are usually plastic housing that strokes the membrane. quality of switches greatly effects tactile response.

    for example.


    this is a standard keyboard. Plastic Key Housing -> Switch -> Membrane -> PCB


    SteelSeries caters to Professional Gamers this is the 6/7G Model it runs anywhere from $100-150 usd. I admit it doesn't look much but what is the difference between a $150 keyboard and a $30 keyboard? cables sleeved, has rubber feet, key changer, extra key set which are grey, detachable wrest, housing is constructed of thermoplastic, usb/ps2/mic/audio inputs are 18k gold platted, can stroke 10-12 keys at once (anti-ghosting) even on PS/2! with this special buffer system also holds the title for tactile response time see below.


    this is a switch from the SteelSeries 6/7G they use a spring system which increases the life expectancy of each key to 60,000,000 key strokes versus standard 1,000,000 to 10,000,000 to the right of the spring is a 18k gold platted connector for optimal conductivity.

    this is the bentley of gaming keyboards.
