In any competitive battle, the tiniest fractions of a second matter. That’s why we’ve designed a mouse switch that actuates at the speed of light. The Razer™ Optical Mouse Switch is a stark upgrade from the traditional mechanical mouse switches used in gaming, with instant actuation and unparalleled durability to deliver a competitive edge.
Traditional mechanical switches send electrical signals via metallic contact. When these contacts strike each other, they create a residual bouncing effect that can result in multiple signals. A debounce delay software is used to overcome this bouncing effect so that only a single click is registered. With the Razer™ Optical Mouse Switch, no physical contact is needed to send an electrical signal, eliminating the need for a debounce delay. Any click is actuated instantly with no unintended clicks.
As no mechanical contact is needed for the transmission of electrical signals, the Razer™ Optical Mouse Switch is less prone to wear and tear from extensive usage. This allows an industry-leading durability of up to 70 million clicks—40% more than the previous best.
