Not at all. It's not impossible to type on cherry reds - I do it every day with my K60. But for my home gaming PC, where I spend the majority of my time gaming, Cherry Reds are much preferable due to their lighter touch. If I spent the majority of time typing (like my work PC), I'd want a different switch.
And as far as anybody saying that we're trying to lie to customers or something - that's just insulting. We're the ones who came out and told everyone what we did and why we did it. If you don't agree with that, I completely understand. We're all allowed to have our own opinions - but we're not trying to mislead anybody. We are completely up front about what decisions we made and why we made them.
I understand if you don't want to buy our products because you would prefer full mechanical or something (though I disagree with its necessity - I can understand why you might feel differently), we aren't lying to anybody.
EVEN if that is the case, how do you explain the insert/home/delete keys? 99% of gaming takes place on the left side of the keyboard. Accidental presses wouldn't be an issue with those keys.
Tons of people own Black widows/BWU/BWU:S and I've never heard any of them complain they accidentally hit keys, macro keys, or the F keys. They use brown and blue switches which are pretty darn close to the required actuation force of reds.
If you are indeed sticking by your guns by saying it wasn't to save money, then did you have chimpanzees in your development test phase, and determined they would mistakenly press the wrong keys?
