Does my keyboard have Kailh or Greetech switches?

    Hello,
    I have purchased a used (three month old) Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition Chroma V1 in a very good condition from ebay.
    After it arrived and I took the Keycaps off I noticed that the switches look like the new and supposedly better Razer Greetech switches. However, I thought that the new Razer Greetech switches were only rolled out with the Razer Blackwidow X Chroma and newer Keyboards. That means that Keyboards like my original Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition Chroma should have the Razer Kailh switches that so many people have been complaining about so much. But when I look up the Razer Greetech switches on Google they look exactly like the ones on my keyboard. Hope someone can clarify what is going on here.

    Greetings from Germany

    These are Greetech switches. They were introducend around 2014.

    Those are the Greetech switches, as mentioned before.
    I hope you enjoy your keyboard :D

    So I got the switches that are supposed to last 80 million keystrokes?

    I just heard from friends that Kailh had QC issues and greetechs switches are supposed to be much more reliable and of higher quality.
