I’ve been trying to choose some peripherals and after extensive reading I believe I was missled about mechanical switches. I read somewhere that I could choose the type of switch I wanted, which Is why I assumed mechanical keyboards were modular. Like, you could just remove a Cherry keycap and pop in another color of your choice. (Thinking of the Razer Naga Trinity here).
But this is not possible. You can’t just rip and pop whatever you want. It actually requires soldering to change the switches.
So what’s the point of mechanical keyboards?
