9/10. This is probably the best thing to get if you're on the fence about a mechanical keyboard and not sure what type of switch to go for. The only small nit to pick is that the key caps aren't all the same size.
Great Product!!! If you are becoming a pc gamer and want a mechanical keyboard, chances are that its most likely going to have cherry mx switches. This product helps you chose exactly which product you want. Another good use of this product, even though its not what its intended for, is that it's a great stand for my phone on my desk! The grips on the bottom keep it from sliding around. The only bad thing about this product is that the test that you don't get to really test the reality of what it would sound like on a keyboard. For example you only get one of each switch but on a real keyboard you have 50+ switches. The sound is quite different between the two. Overall a great product for a beginner but I would still recommend going to a store and testing out your favorite switch on an actual keyboard.
I received what I expected. Although having all the same keycap makes more sense in my opinion than having caps of different heights as they don't really change the feel of a switch.
This keyswitch sampler is exactly what I needed to get an idea about different types of Cherry MX switches before buying a mechanical keyboard. It is really easy to assemble and very compact. In case of problems, Max customer service was prompt and does live up to its excellent reputation.
Without this tool, I would not have been able to decide which switch fits my typing style best. Descriptions only go so far, and I'm glad this exists as an economical way to try them all before going all in on a new keyboard.

10/10 would recommend.
A brilliant kit to test a high number of Cherry MX switches if you, like me, have never seen or tried them before. The instructions were very helpful, and the delivery was swift.
Great for figuring out which key switches you want. I like that there are 8 different types of switch to test compared to some testers with only 3 or 4. I would have liked the option of Topre or Alps keys but I may have to just find them on my own later.
A very good demonstration unit for the switches.Very well designed for holding the switches. Unfortunately pretty poor Quality Control on the key caps as I have at least 3 different sized keycaps. It is unfortunate because anybody that sees the unit points this fact out to me right away.
Nice sampler to figure out what kind of Switches you want on your keyboard. Out of the 8 switches they send you only for are readily available on keyboards, some of the switches are made for cash registers and such but it's interesting to feel the difference.

My only real complaint are the Keycaps they send are all different shapes and sizes and they don't really give you instructions of what goes on which switch.
Pros:
1. Easy to set up
2. Provides an accurate representation on how the key-switches feel, instead of just receiving a few keys and keycaps
3. It was nice to get my hands on the cherry mx grey switches, they feel a lot nicer than the clears or browns and are the most tactile switch i have felt in a while.

Cons:
1. No keycap puller; the keycaps are easy to remove anyway, but i feel that this need the puller to test whether or not you like the o-rings
2. The o-rings themselves are not to my liking, whilst it wasn't worth knocking a star off for, switches like the blue lose a majority of their tactility. i don't bottom my keys out, and the o-rings were just thick enough so i would erratically bottom out.
3. No point in the different sized keycaps
