Cherry MX Speed

First debuting way back in 2016, Cherry’s MX Speed switches are designed to be hyper-sensitive, and quick to actuate. Despite being a full-sized switch, its actuation point is lowered to 1.2mm compared to the 2mm you’ll find on a Cherry MX Red. Couple that with a linear action, 45g of actuation force, and no tactile bump, and these things are quick sharp, and surprisingly quiet. But don’t worry though, they may be super sensitive, almost delicate to the touch, but they still come with the same 50 million keystroke warranty as any other Cherry switch. They’re the FPS gamer’s best friend.
