    This one looks interesting. Reasonable price, has 10-key, doesn't have 8 million flashy colors, cherry switches.

    I don't care for the RGB crap and at this price sounds really good.

    very nice and solid keyboard, I just wish it has light on keys also and not on the background only.
    It helps a lot while playing on the dark, like I'm used to ;)

    The article is incorrect



    This keyboard uses Kailh switches (overseas made MX cherry knockoff) not real MX cherry switches.



    Now most people will not be able to tell the difference in actual feel - but Kailh do break easier as the quality is not as high as genuine MX cherry switches



    Kailh have a tendency to snap the key shaft right off, also issues with double register are a lot more common  - so buyer beware



    According to the manufacturer they use actual Cherry switches on this keyboard http://www.ttesports.com/productPage.aspx?p=243&g=ftr#.Wkpem9-nGUl

    Because manufacturer is mistakenly calling Kailh swithes MX cherry.
    Poseidon series has Kailh switches. Meka Pro has Cherry.

    I think you're confusing this with other keyboards they manufacture. They do have keyboards with Kailh switches, but those products are listed as "Tt eSPORTS Certified Mechanical switches" like this one http://www.ttesports.com/Keyboard/209/POSEIDON_Z_TOUCH/productPage.htm?a=a&g=ftr#.Wkp6Bt-nGUk The keyboards like the one featured in this article have geneuine cherry switches.

    Look under "Available from these sellers", there's 4 options listed. 2 are Kailh, they're just listed as "Blue Switches" and "Brown Switches" and they're $10 cheaper. To the right are the ones with genuine Cherry switches. Amazon lumps all of the reviews together even though there's 4 separate products being sold. Again, the ones that Thermaltake lists as Cherry MX are genuine Cherry MX switches.
