I love blues, mostly for typing, but i prefer to use browns because they are quiet but still feel amazing. also browns don't disturb my house/work

I tried Rubber Dome and Scissor Switch and I'm going with Scissor Switch. Near silent and easy to type. From what everyone says, I imagine a mechanical keyboard a lot better but because I never used one I'm only voting on what I used.

Rubber domes and Topres have similar force curves, just different activation points.

Makes sense when you see how a Topre switch works.

Topre, no Cherry can match the sheer typing pleasure from Topre, unfortunately I can no longer afford one and the Brown will have to do for now.

Most people likes browns just because is the only kind of microswitch they ever tried, and in turn they tried browns because all the "experts" are suggesting them as first try.

I have NO IDEA how this poll will turn out but for the OP I'd recommend Buckling Springs.

My wife claims she gets less typos with her sharp tactile clicky Unicomp Spacesaver Buckling Spring.
