CHERRY MX Blue switches are click-style switches that provide much more substantial audible and tactile feedback with each keypress. Click-style keyswitches tend to have higher reset positions and require greater actuation force, so they may perform a bit slower in rapid-tap situations. Gamers and writers who don’t mind trading a bit of speed for definitive aural and tactile keypress confirmation will enjoy these switches.

CHERRY MX Brown switches are tactile-style switches, with a bump along the travel path that provides confirmation every time a keypress is registered. These switches are a balance between click switches and linear switches in terms of the audio feedback provided and the force needed to register a keypress. They are preferred by gamers who prioritise accuracy over speed and users who enjoy instantly knowing whether a key has been pressed.

CHERRY MX Red switches are linear-style switches; their travel path doesn’t have the bump used to provide tactile feedback. These switches don’t have to reset past that bump to register a repeat press, so gamers who need to rapidly double-tap or triple-tap keys will enjoy the edge in speed. The smoother movement makes these switches quieter than tactile and click switches.
