Akko lavender purple basic review

(1/1)

HeadlessHorseman:
Iíve been using Akko lavender purples for about a year now as it is my first (and only) keeb.
I can only comment on the reliability of the switches as I donít have much of a frame of reference to other switches.
The problem Iíve had with the akkos is that Iíve had to replace them fairly commonly as they would stop working randomly without much use on them. Iíve heard that other users have had similar issues with their switches but other than that they are good affordable switches.

HungerMechanic:
Unfortunately, those particular switches and their Ocean Blue companions are known to have the issues you describe.

I am not sure if this applies to the latest Cream Blue Pro V3 and similarly-new Purple release.

I would not recommend using the original Lavender Purple or Ocean Blue tactiles in any builds.

Although the issues are fairly common I wouldnít go as far to not recommend them as they still usually perform to what I expected, apart from that it is unusual to only buy one box so you would have extra switches to swap out
