I replace my old/bad quality microswithes for this cherry and I discover a new world. Never will buy other switches.
I've used all sorts of microswitches, but these are the best. Pay the little extra, it's worth it, trust me.
In my opinion the best switch you can get. Great positive click , and have never failed on me. Yes you could save a few pence buying a cheaper switch but if you're on a budget there's a lot of other areas to cut corners to greater effect. Don't scrimp on your switches!
I selected this microswitch for my playing buttons, not a choice that I regret. This one might be a little more expensive, but well worth the extra money. Feels right, zero delay even when you buttonmash your buttons.
Put them in my Sound Voltex controller, they are quite light and have a nice tactile click. Very responsive switches, recommended.
Slowly replacing all my existing switches with these.. nice switches
I used these switches on a Hori Hayabusa. The switch itself is great quality, however provides minimal feedback and has a soft click. If you need to make your stick less noisy this is a great choice, however the lack of feedback will probably need some getting used to.
I needed some additional switches and took a chance from previous reviews to change all the player buttons to the cherry switches. What a big difference!, you can feel it in the raw form pressing the switch how much better they are than generic other swiches in the ease to press and they are quieter although microswitches in general give that distinctive click. Highly recommend for player buttons, not so much menu controls, 1up etc as you can recycle your old ones for that.
I'm in the process of updating my X-Arcade; buttons and switches done, joysticks still to do. The improvement I've already seen just from swapping from stock to Cherry micro-switches is MASSIVE, they're super-responsive, with a very nice, soft action and feel. Worth every penny, recommended without hesitation!
Really responsive (and with the classic Cherry click) microswitches. Not the cheapest, but considering how much use they'll be getting worth the extra little bit of cash.
These are solid excellent quality switches - worth spending the little extra to get these.
I originally built my bartop cab from a kit, with all the components included, however when recently rewiring it all, I decided to take the opportunity to replace the 6 player 1 and 6 player 2 switches, as the original ones required a bit too much force to use comfortably for long periods of time on rapid fire shooters. The difference between these Cherry switches and the originals is like chalk and cheese, the buttons now have a much more 'quality-feel' to them - even though the buttons are the same, it's just the switches I replaced - they can be used for long periods without the dreaded 'gamers finger' repetitive strain injury! I'm really glad I chose to replace my switches with these, although for infrequently used switched (P1 start, P2 start, insert coin) the cheaper switches are probably just as good. On the frequently used buttons though, these are worth paying a little extra for.
