The Asus Cerberus Mech RGB is available in Red, Brown, Black and Blue Kailh RGB switches
The Kailh Brown switch on the unit that we had received has a higher actuation force (60g), hence it feels heavier than what you would find on Cherry MX Brown switches with a 45g actuation force. Because of the higher actuation force, the switches feel like a cross between Cherry MX Black and Blue. Even though there isn’t much of a difference in the interior design between the two switches (except the Gold crosspoint), the Kailh variant claims to achieve a higher durability of 70 million keystrokes.

The Cerberus Mech RGB is available in Red, Brown, Black and Blue Kailh RGB switches. Our review unit shipped with Brown Kailh RGB switches. Apart from the keyboard in the box, you’ll find four extra orange keycaps to replace your WASD or arrow keys. You will also find a plastic keycap puller, something that all manufacturers should include in mechanical keyboards. There are no USB passthrough or audio ports, and although you get software support, it isn’t really required.
