Model Switch Type Actuation Force Characteristics
Cherry MX Red
Linear 45g Smooth, no tactile bump, The Cherry MX Red is a lighter variant of the Cherry MX Black linear switch.
Cherry MX Black Linear 60g Smooth, no tactile bump, The Cherry MX Black is a stiffer variant of the Cherry MX Red linear switch.
Cherry MX Blue Tactile & Clicky 50g Tactile and clicky switch. You can feel the tactile bump and hear the "click" that occurs when the activation point is hit.
Cherry MX Brown Tactile 45g Softer and lighter tactile bump, no click. The tactile point is much less pronounced.
Cherry MX Green Tactile & Clicky 80g Firm tactile and clicky switch. You can feel the tactile bump and hear the "firm click" that occurs when the activation point is hit.

Cherry MX Clear Tactile 55g Tactile bump, no click. The tactile point is much pronounced.
Cherry MX White Tactile & Clicky 65g Tactile and lighter click switch. You can feel the tactile bump and hear the "soft click" that occurs when the activation point is hit.
Gateron KS Black Linear 60g Smooth, no tactile bump. The Gateron KS Black is a stiffer variant of the Gateron KS Red linear switch.
Gateron KS Red Linear 45g Smooth, no tactile bump. The Gateron KS Red is a stiffer variant of the Gateron KS Clear linear switch.

Installation Guide
Thought I'd only use it to test switches, but ended up ordering the PCB as well and it was soooo worth it. I now I have a fully functional media board that I also use to play osu! and I couldn't be happier.
Super nice kit, it's great that it's usable too. I already have a mechanical keyboard but it was fun to try what all the different switches felt like.
Nice tester ... I liked having the Gateron and Cherry switches to compare to each other, and the metal casing is heavy enough to handle multiple switch changes.
Spend 3 weeks playing around with the keyboard. You will be surprised at which switch(es) you end up choosing. This is a must-buy purchase before you lay out the cash for an entire keyboard never having spent any time with the switches.
Got the product, works great as a tester for items. Would probably work best if a) we got labels as to which switch is which (you can reasonably guess, but still), and b) got keycaps & room for all of the keys on the plate so you can test them all at the same time. Still, worked like a charm; helped me test the differences and figure out what I was looking for.
The key switches snap into square holes in the aluminum plate that pass all the way through. Additionally, each switch has 2 short leads sticking out of the bottom. This makes it quite simple to attach wires onto the switches, and use this thing as an 8-button input device for an Arduino. Many possibilities from there :)

You could also purchase their PCB and turn this switch tester into a media pad or macro pad! http://www.maxkeyboard.com/max-falcon-8-programmable-macropad-pcb-printed-circuit-board.html
This is a great product for helping me pick my keyboard's cherry because it is so easy to switch out the different key testers.
