The button is well made, looks great, has no visible seams on the ring. The button and ring are both lit by the LED. Bright enough, but not glaring. The Cherry microswitch was a really tight fit at first but after fitting has been really easy to take apart the few times that I needed to during assembly. Would recommend to anyone.
I've used these buttons as my main gameplay buttons. Make a nice sound and are well made and easy to wire up. I chose white for all all them and then separate coloured LEDS so that they would light up different colours once turned on.
I choose them for the front of my pincab, as function buttons, with led and standard switch.
I got the 5V versions of all colors, these are fantastic illuminated buttons with a great look with or without illuminations. Each of the buttons are different colors, and you'll get the corresponding LED color to match, each LED already has a resistor so there's no need to add one, and each LED draws approximately 20mA. The buttons are raised vertically with a black ring. You can print graphics, even on regular printer paper, and insert under the button lens but you'll get better results printing on translucent media.
Excellent quality and fast shipments.
For less than a pound fifty (at time of purchase), these are great value with the standard switches. I used a selection of these for my 'function' buttons - coins, start/select, tab/escape - and have not been disappointed.
