What makes the SteelSeries Quick Tension Switch special?

We started with a standard rubber dome design, then engineered the housing and plunger mechanism to create an actuation feel that resembles a mechanical switch. The Tension Membrane Switch assists in actuating a key press, pulling the key down after the half-way point, resulting in faster registration with all of the tactile response of a traditional mechanical keyboard.
