The technical data of a switch can be hard to understand. Our goal here is to demystify how these specs affect feel and sound. We hope this helps you discover whether or not a switch might be a good fit.
A switch's actuation force, or force required to trigger a keystroke, on the Sarokeys Strawberry Wine (V2) requires 45g of force. This is lighter than 77% of other switches' actuation force in our selection.
A switch's actuation force is based on the entire switch design.
Bottoming out, or pressing all the way down, on this Sarokeys Strawberry Wine (V2) switch requires 50g of force. With a lighter bottom-out than 90% of switches in our selection, the Sarokeys Strawberry Wine (V2) is considered lightweight.
A switch's bottom-out force is dependent solely on its spring weight.
What matters more: Actuation or Bottom-out Force?
If you prefer to bottom-out when you type, bottom-out force is the more relevant measurement. If you do not, then actuation force is more relevant.
The Sarokeys Strawberry Wine (V2) is factory lubed. This is done to reduce friction and improve the feel of the switch. Other effects include reduced noise and if a tactile switch, slightly decreased tactility. Choosing a factory lubed switch saves you time and energy from having to lube the switch yourself. Factories have drastically improved the lubing process over the years, meaning more and more factory-lubed switches are great to use out-of-the-box.
Top Housing: POM
POM is the Sarokeys Strawberry Wine (V2)'s top housing material. POM housings create an incredibly pleasing and unique sound. This sound profile is on the deeper side and it is relatively more muted.
Bottom Housing: Nylon
Nylon is the Sarokeys Strawberry Wine (V2)'s bottom housing material. Nylon is a classic switch housing material. Typing on switches that use nylon elicits a deeper and fuller sound profile. In part, this is because nylon is a relatively softer plastic and absorbs more sound than harder plastics, thereby creating a duller and rounder sound.
A note on housings
The Sarokeys Strawberry Wine (V2) uses different materials in its top and bottom housings. As such, the qualities each housing material brings to the switch will be split between the bottom and the top of the switch.
When you press down on this switch you will feel the qualities of the bottom housing: the bottom housing has more of an impact on the bottom-out sound and feel. On the other hand, the top housing will have more of an impact on the sound when you let go of a key.
Mount type: PCB (5-pin)
The Sarokeys Strawberry Wine (V2) is a PCB (5-pin) mount switch. PCB-mount, or 5-pin, switches feature 2 extra alignment pins when compared to their 3-pin counterparts. This ensures alignment (i.e. switch won't rotate and will stay in place) if your keyboard does not feature a plate or if you choose not to use one. If your keyboard's PCB does not have holes for these alignment pins, you will need to trim them off before installing them.
Stem construction: Standard
The cross-shaped stem construction is the most standard as well as the most classic, as it is derived from the original Cherry switches.
A clacky keyboard switch produces a sharp and snappy sound when pressed. The sound can be described as crisp, bright, and percussive.
High-pitched switches produce a sharp and crisp sound when pressed. If you do not like the more rich and bassy sound profiles of certain keyboard switches, be sure to pick higher-pitched ones.
When typing on a resonant switch, you can expect a higher-pitched sound profile and an immersive auditory experience. The sound profile is clean and sharp.
A silky switch refers to a switch that offers an exceptionally smooth typing experience. These switches enhance the overall smoothness of the typing feel and minimze resistance when pressing and releasing keys.
