Cherry MX switches were developed and patented in the early 1980s (U.S. Patent 4,467,160) and first marketed around 1985. In the consumer keyboard market, Cherry MX switches are often referenced by the color of the key stem—the part of the switch below the keycap that moves downward when pressed. Most common Cherry MX switches are:

  • Linear
    • Cherry MX Black
    • Cherry MX Red
    • Cherry MX Silver Silent
    • Cherry MX Grey
    • Cherry MX Speed
  • Tactile, non-clicky
    • Cherry MX Brown
    • Cherry MX Clear
    • Cherry MX Grey
  • Tactile and clicky
    • Cherry MX Blue
    • Cherry MX Green
    • Cherry MX White

Cherry MX Grey Switches can be found in Linear, Tactile, and Clicky variants. They are distinguished by stem color, with Linear being darker than Tactile. The Clicky version is no longer made. It is debated as to whether it even clicks, since it is not listed as a "click" switch by Cherry in their 1994 "Keymodule MX brochure", along with MX Whites, which are greased to reduce the click. Given their use primarily in large keys like space bar, the feel is selected to match that of the other keys on the board.
