Max Keyboard Cherry MX Pro Sampler Kit Key Cap Guide

The included 9 clear key caps are actually in different row profiles just like what you will find in real mechanical keyboards. There are symbols under each key cap which tells you which row profile they are.

E = Top 2 rows (ESC, F1, F2, 1, 2, 3)(1 key included)
D = Q, W, E, R...(1 key included)
C = A, S, D...(3 keys included)
B = Z, X, C, V, arrow keys (4 keys included)

You could  use the 4 "B" profile keys for your lower row. 3 "C" profile keys for your upper row and E / D profile for your last key. To remove the switches, simply push it out from the bottom of the base.

Max Keyboard Pro Sampler Kit Installation Guide


I wanted to test different switches for a mechanical keyboard without going to the store, and bought this because I was planning on buying another mechanical keyboard. My current daily keyboard has blue switches which is pretty loud and clacky in my opinion. This is very handy and would definitely recommend it to those who are planning on buying a mechanical keyboard!
I knew nothing about all these switches differences. Asking a friend for advice he made me rediscover the keyboard world. Without such a device it is quite difficult to guess what you'd feel comfortable with, so it was really practical.
Great product - helped me determine which switch I wanted to buy. I would have made the wrong choice without this!
Helps a lot with deciding which switch to choose, especially if you (like me) have never tried a mechanical switch before and have no idea how its supposed to feel.
It's nice that the tester has 8 different switches to test (I think that's more than any other tester), and the O-rings are a nice touch, but the keycaps provided aren't all the same (you can't even make 2 consistent rows—at least one has to "mix and match" profiles). When comparing switches, it's best to keep all other variables constant, so 8 identical caps would be best, and 2 different sets of 4 would be okay, but inconsistent rows are just uncomfortable and weird. I used some spare caps I had lying around, so now I have a functional tester, but they aren't see-through, so it can be hard to remember which switch is which. The switches also don't "clip" onto the acrylic base, so pulling caps sometimes pulls the switch out too. It works for me, but if you don't have spare caps, this could be a problem.
This is a nice handy little tool to help you decide what type of MX keys you want on your next keyboard.

I chose Cherry MX reds and couldn't be happier.

The only way to improve this item is to include what kind of O-rings that are included? Like the part number. This is an excellent product.
I wasn't sure what mechanical switch I wanted so I bought this. I cannot complain it arrived sooner than expected and did exactly what I needed and wanted it to do.
Very good way to evaluate what kind of key you want to get. I found it helpful to make my final decision (brown over red keys).
I ordered this item and got it shipped to me only two days later! Super FAST shipping. Easy to assemble. Now, if I can only make up my mind which key switch type for my gaming keyboard...
Simply perfect!! Very handy for guys like me, who never owned a mechanical keyboard, to try how the buttons feels and sounds, before purchasing the keyboard.
