  • I bought a SparkFun MIDI Shield with three of these switches, and assuming they're the same ones [I believe so] I can report that two of the three are failing after under 5000 presses. They're supposedly rated for one million presses,. But if I press down with a slight emphasis on on one side of either switch they'll click but not register an electrical contact. This is reliable and consistent. This is way worse than switch bounce: the switches won't even turn on. Additionally, the buttons have always been loose: if you press the switch, then wiggle it, it'll go on and off and on and off.

    I have found these to be very poor quality switches.

No public wish lists :(
