Logitech’s latest keyboard, the Pro X Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, uses key switches that can be swapped out without you needing to desolder them. Instead, as Tom’s Hardware reports, you can extract them using a simple plastic tool, which makes removing and replacing them almost as easy as swapping the keyboard’s keycaps.
Being able to change a keyboard’s switches this easily is great for anyone who wants to try out a different switch type without having to buy an entirely new keyboard; they can just buy a new pack of switches. Also, since you can replace the switches on an individual basis, you could theoretically customize a board that uses one switch for some keys, and an entirely different switch for others.
