There are many types of switches when it comes to keyboards, however at QWERkeys we deal with the mechanical Cherry MX switch varieties (or any compatible switches like Kailh). There are quite a few in the Cherry MX range, however not all are available and some are quite hard to find. Each different type of Cherry MX switch behaves in a different way, some have a linear movement, some tactile. Hopefully the animated diagrams below will help demonstrate the differences between them (thanks to Lethal Squirrel at Geekhack).
