a cherry mx brown switch takes 45cN to actuate...all over the keyboard, leaves you in no doubt that a key is pressed when you only have to use the same force for all keys rather than a difference of 50cN.
the membrane has a larger range of force needed than the mechanical has between resting and actuated positions!
add to that the fact membrane keyboards bottom out at actuation means you're inevitably pressing harder than actuation and into a solid material behind the key vs a mechanical keyboards extra 2mm of key travel which cushions the impact meaning less of a jarring stop for the finger and it mounts up to be a lot less fatiguing
just a pity kinesis doesn't use cherry MX browns in their freestyle keyboard, if they did it would be my ideal keyboard.
