i agree 100%… but with anything in life – its all about marketing, design, and fine tuning.

this: https://www.amazon.com/Cougar-KBC700-1IS-Backlight-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B00NFOD58M

… is built to cater and entice 1 segment of the population – gamers. it doesnt have to be used for gaming… and on the flip side, a $20 logitech keyboard would work for gaming as well. but the cherry reds are built for speed… higher reactions times (which gamers think they need as they all have .001 millisecond reaction times /sarcasm) macro keys not present on most boards… etc.

as well, some of those offer features gamers want that most boards dont offer at all…. like auro sync for rgb, custom macros loaded automatically per game… etc etc etc etc etc.

so again… i agree with the sentiment, but to say there is no such thing is to ignore virtually all aspects of the device besides the mechanical switch.

If you are going through the trouble to place a bunch of Cherry/Cherry clone switches into a keyboard, why not do it for all the keys you put on the board? I do not understand why they would simply make the volume keys the same as the rest of them.

edit: ~~Also, here is a link to the product on Amazon and not a terrible website: http://www.amazon.com/Cougar-KBC700-1IS-Backlight-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B00NFOD58M/ref=sr_1_2?srs=2587748011&ie=UTF8&qid=1449706770&sr=8-2&keywords=keyboard~~

Nevermind that is their old keyboard…
