Thank you for sharing.

The switches in this keyboard are the Razer Green ones, which are described by Razer as "Tactile & Clicky." These are similar to Cherry MX Blue switches. Razer manufactures the keys to have shorter actuation points, so the keys will have a slightly faster response time.

I am using this keyboard as my main one, but with Razer Orange switches, which are described by Razer as "Tactile & Silent." I really like the feel of it and enjoy typing on it.

Razer manufactures the keys
With all due respect, it is LongHua/KaiHua, who manufacture the switches for Razer and slaps Kailh Razer logo on them...

Is that bad or good or doesn't matter? Are they evil or something?

It's all three simultaneously...

They were the first (?) to introduce cheaper alternatives to the heavily overpriced original (German-made) MX. But otherwise, they are yet another low-quality manufacturer from Mainland, with uncertain labor motivation. My problem with them (or rather, Razer) is that they are pretending to be equal to Cherry MX in quality and price, while being yet another sub-par clone of the original Cherry MX, that are - in their own turn, a somewhat lousy (but legal) imitation of the USA-designed and -manufactured Buckling Spring in the original IBM's F and M models...

Technically, you are absolutely correct. I considering writing "Kaihua manufactuers," but ended up writing "Razer manufacturers" because that's the way Razer writes it here [razerzone.com].

Thanks for providing clarification for the community and starting a conversation about it!
