Choosing the perfect mouse switch

Choosing the perfect mouse switch

If you're looking to upgrade your gaming mouse switch, there are a few popular options to consider. Let's take a look at some of the most common types of mouse switches and their characteristics:

  • Heavy and Tactile: These switches are popular for their satisfying click sound and tactile feedback. They require a bit more force to actuate, which can prevent misclicks but may also cause fatigue over long gaming sessions. Examples include the Kailh Red GM 4.0 and the Huano Blue Shell Pink Dot.


  • Medium Feel: Many gaming mice come with switches that fall somewhere in the middle of the tactile and light touch spectrum. These switches provide a balance of tactile feedback and ease of use. The Kailh Light Blue GM 2.0 and the TTC Gold 80M are examples of medium feel switches.


  • Light Touch: If you prefer a lighter touch, you may want to consider switches with a lower actuation force. These switches are easier to click, which can be advantageous for games that require a lot of clicking. The Zippy White Dot and the Omron Blue Dot are both examples of light touch switches.

When choosing a mouse switch, it's important to consider your gaming style and preferences. If you play games that require precision clicking, a more tactile switch may be best. If you're looking for speed and ease of use, a light touch switch may be more suitable. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide which switch feels the best for your gaming needs.
