Select the best switch for your style.
Before choosing what type of mechanical or optical switch, we need to understand it is mostly about preference. You need to look into what will work best for you and what you will use your keyboard for the most. Our Epomaker GK series, and some of our other keyboards allow for hotswappability. This means that even if you dislike the current switch you bought, you can swap it to another switch. Which switch you can swap to depends on your keyboard type.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
- Keyboard Customized Kit (PCB, Mounting Plate, Stabilizers)
- Type-C Cable
- Keycap Puller
- Switch Puller
- Carry pouch
My gk73s keyboard does not have to option to apply an underscore key. At the very least I can't seem to find it or make it work. My key next to numlock is a dash (-) rather than an underscore which the guide seems to note.
