i seriously doubt that these keyboards use real cherry switches, unless proven otherwise, given thats its from a no name chinese company combined with the fact that the cost of switches alone is almost the entirety of the keyboard. the cheapest ive seen switches is $0.543 for 1000 in bulk. http://www.newark.com/zf-cherry/m...dp/01M8366so its safe to assume that companies buying that many switches would pay around $0.40~$0.50, and with 104 keys on each keyboard, that ends up somewhere around $40 just for switches. theres then also a pretty significant cost of the keycaps and pcb. together, those likely cost at least $10. I just don't see the company being able to turn over a profit at this price unless they used an alternate switch
