New CHERRY MX website launched
« on: Wed, 03 May 2017, 02:12:00 »
Hi volks,

we just lunched our new website http://www.cherrymx.de on May, 1st 2017.
We want to continuously improve it and it will be great if we get some feedback, here in the comments or  through our social media channels, which are linked there.

Your feedback is also much appreciated.

Thanks,
Michael

Looks awesome and a lot more informative, although the homepage makes it look like you're an esport team :P

Most of our users are gamers ... so we wanted to be close to them ;-)

It's missing MX-Clears. :P

Light spring mods on Clears have been all the rage for years now. Hell, Zeal even made a business out of selling something similar.

Really nice website. Simple and intuitive, like all sites should be.

If you use a narrow browsing window, there are arrows for scrolling the "tabs" of switches. However, those don't appear unless you mouse over them, and having a light grey field to the right of them makes it appear as if the options visible are the only available.
I would suggest that the trough should span the entire width of the containing div and if one or more options are hidden, it should show the applicable arrow automatically.

It's missing MX-Clears. :P
Yes! Lots of people who have tried multiple switches have finally settled on MX Clears. Myself, I have four boards with them.

BTW. Zeal beside making them lighter (which I find not necessary) fixed two drawbacks of genuine clears: he made them smoother and not hold keycaps too tightly.
Now, Cherry... get me smooth silent MX Clears and I will never look at Zealios again. ;)

Looks great! My only feedback would be to have a bit more about other things you do. There are lots of pictures of esports but nothing about who you sponsor, what games you are involved in, anything else you do. It seems the site map is just the landing page, products and that's it.

Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Great looking site and as an engineer, I love the specs and diagrams!
The only thing its missing for me is a "buy Silent Black RBG here:" link  :))  I can't wait until i can purchase about 300 of them!

The home/landing page looks nice, but I think the "see products" button is a bit cumbersome. Instead, I think you should have all the switches displayed on the top of the landing page just like in the products page so you can directly click on the switch you're looking for. Also, on the page describing the specific switch, you should probably place the social media links at the bottom of the page, not the middle. I'm not sure if that was an error or not.

Hope that helps a bit. Website looks good though!

what is the zweck of this website?

Are you trying to sell switches to end consumers?
