Practical testing …
We test the Thermaltake Level 20 RGB Titanium Edition over several weeks with different games on everyday suitability. The Cherry MX Speed Silver have a low pre travel and a linear switching characteristic. These are ideal basic requirements for gamers!
In the following table we have created a small Cherry MX switch comparison where you can clearly compare the switch type, the click sound, the actuating force in Centinewton, the forward travel and the total travel to select the right switch for your application.
|Cherry MX Switches Comparison|
|Type||Marks||Characteristic||Sound||Force||Total travel||Pre travel|
|Cherry MX RED||Effortless and fast||Linear||Silent||45 cN||4.0 mm||2.0 mm|
|Cherry MX BROWN||Tactile and quiet||Tactile||Silent||55 cN||4.0 mm||2.0 mm|
|Cherry MX BLUE||Precise and audible||Tactile||Audible click||60 cN||4.0 mm||2.2 mm|
|Cherry MX BLACK||Sensitive and precise||Linear||Silent||60 cN||4.0 mm||2.0 mm|
|Cherry MX SPEED Silver||Fast||Linear||Silent||45 cN||3.4 mm||1.2 mm|
How well the keyboard performs when playing, we first test with the game Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.
Additionally we test the performance in Dota 2 to extend our test spectrum with a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena).
As expected, the keyboard is doing great! You simply notice that it is at home in the area. In the beginning we even had to get used to the speed of the input. So the MX Speed Silver have their name right. The switches are perfectly suited for games like First-Person-Shooter. However, if you have to write several hours a day with the keyboard, we would recommend one of the tactile switches like the Cherry MX Blue or MX Brown. For the game-mad tester, the Cherry MX Speed Silver are just right.
Here you can also see the keyboard in its full RGB color spectrum.
And so that you can get a better impression of the RGB lighting, we have also created a small video.
