What's the hybrid mechanical switch?
According to PCGamer.com:

>Cooler Master uses Cherry MX switches on all of its keyboards—except for one. The Cooler Master Novatouch TKL, the most esteemed plank in Cooler Master's inventory, uses Cooler Master's proprietary Hybrid Capacitive switch.

>The Cooler Master Hybrid Capacitive switch is basically a modified Topre. It adds Cherry MX stem to the center of the Topre stem, giving users the flexibility to install custom keycaps.

Review at Kitguru

https://www.kitguru.net/periphera...bo-review/

"The Deathfire EX keyboard is also a 'memchanical', or 'hybrid' keyboard – meaning that it is actually a membrane keyboard but the keys have been modified slightly to give some tactile feedback, making them feel more in-line with high-end mechanical switches."

This keyboard is coming with neither Topres nor (Topre knock-off) NovaTouches.

My problems with this set:
  1. Not a mech, but a plunger (and expensive at that)
  2. Asian layout - enlarged Enter key, shortened Backspace and misplaced "|" key

So by mechanical hybrid, what they mean is, not mechanical at all.

I hate that some manufacturers still call these hybrid, it's kind of misleading. Calling it a "mechanical-feel" keyboard is much more clear.

The reason they are cheap is because one they are EU layout, and two they are not mechanical at all. For that you're much better off with the Cooler Master Devastator series which a combo regularly goes for $20 AR.
