Which switch is the best?
Most switches fall into either of these three categories:
Linear (Cherry MX Red, Kailh Box Red, etc.), Tactile (Cherry MX Brown, Kailh Box Brown, etc.) and Clicky (Cherry MX Blue, Kailh Box White, etc.).
Linear switches provide a smooth uninterrupted travel.
Tactile switches have a tactile bump during travel, indicating the actuation point.
Clicky is not entirely unlike tactile, however, they feature an additional audio feedback, usually in form of a clickbar, to make you both hear and feel the actuation of the switch.
Can I use any switch with my Everest Keyboard?
You can use any 3-pin plate mounted mechanical switch from Cherry, Kailh, Gateron, etc. Our webstore carries a carefully selected collection of switches fully compatible with Everest.

I'm trying to install a switch but it won't fit! Why is that?
I plugged in my Everest but it doesn't work! Why?
Everest has a total of 5 USB Type-C ports. The two on top are for the Media Dock, the two on the left and right are for the Numpad. To connect your Everest keyboard, insert the type-C connector of the Type A to Type C cable in the center port at the back of the keyboard as shown here. For stability purposes we recommend the usage of a USB 3.0 port or above on your computer.
What are the best practices to update Everest's firmware?
First of all, please make sure Base Camp is up to date before you start a firmware update. If not done so already, please also ensure Everest is connected to a USB 3.X port prior to the update.
Can I use any USB Type-C cable to connect the Numpad to Everest?
If you wish to use an extension cable to connect the Numpad to your Everest, please find it here. Other USB Type-C to Type-C cables are not compatible.
