These Outemu Box Blue MX Clicky keyboard switches feature a nice tactile bump and a solid click. They are great way to get started and get a feel for clicky mechanical switches.
Outemus are fantastic for modding too. Due to their accessible price, you can experiment worry-free! For example, you can add JSpacers to make Jailhouse Blues. This will turn your clicky switches into fantastic tactile ones! Interested? We've got you covered!

Note: These are the improved Outemu Box Blue Linear switches from Gaote. Outemu has released a box design that reduces wobble. The leaf has been strengthened and is on display in the transparent top-housing. The new tooling leads to a reduced scratch and a nice heavy linear feel.

These switches have a lifespan of 40 million clicks. 

Note that our current stock does not have pin protectors that have to be removed so you can plug these right in!

I thought Amazon / Ebay were the only options to get custom switches. Many "china-made-trinkets" vendors will take your order when out of stock, and leave you waiting a month for the boat to arrive from Singapore (hello Glorious Keyboards!). SwitchCaptain has a great selection, fair price, free shipping, and they arrived only days later. Who needs Amazon?

Such a click!

A little slow to arrive but was still printing parts anyway. Plus the great little metal cases were worth it. I want to turn one into a giant Gameboy now!
The keys are awesome. "I knew I needed a click..." - Giorgio
My tastes may have been cemented at a young age by obtaining an IBM Model M. A keeb you could very easily use to fend off zombies and then sit back down and continue coding. Sadly I loaned it to a friend of a friend and never saw it again. Many years later I've now realized I have the ability to create custom devices from scratch and experiment with various options. So here we go. A dash of 3D modeling, a cup of 3D printing, a sprinkle of diodes and a deep dive into QMK and voila! It won't be quite as useful in a melee fight but it will definitely satisfy my craving for the click for quite some time.
There's enough resistance that when I rest on the home row I don't have "DDDDDDDDDDDD" across the screen which occasionally happens.
TL;DR A very solid tactile feedback and once you add some double-shot PBTs a nice, fairly high pitched click with a nice return bump up as well.

Great Service, Product & Shipping

Received my blue switches 4 days after ordering on the 4th of July. Switches came in nice tin container. Installed switches without a problem, and they perform, fell and sound great.

Great switches!

Ordered these for custom macro pads, they work flawlessly! Nice sturdy clicks, much better than I expected for the price, I'll be coming back for more when I start my next project

Fantastic Switches

I've had a bad experience buying switches before, and these switches really turned that around. The switches took a while to arrive, but it was really great when they showed up and got them installed. They are just as clicky as I was hoping, and they also look really nice with my Redragon K556. They provide a very nice feel and were very easy to install. Over all 10/10 experience, and I love these switches!
