what's funny is all the anger... over keyboards.. that nobody is forcing them to use, buy,or even look at.

I know whats the deal with that. I'm going to go troll the 7970 club because they are too expensive.

Cherry clear switches are closest to rubber dome feel, am I correct?

Not at all. If anything, blacks or reds feel more like RDs. Especially black IMO

I wouldn't say any kind of purely mechanical switch ist really "close" to rubberdomes. The reason is simply that the mech switches all have their actuation point at mid-travel. While rubber domes have the actuation point more or less at the end of the button travel. You can get mech switches (Clear, Black) that feel a bit like some rubberdomes to the fingers, but the actual typing will still be different because of the underlying mechanics.

PS: There is nothing on the mech side of things that would feel similar to a good scissor style, like the Thinkpad keyboard. No mech switches are available with this kind of short button travel and heavy tactile feel. No comment on which is "better", i like to use both.

guys, there is no "rubber dome feel"

notice how one of you said clears, and another said blacks or reds? thats because rubber domes dont have their own feel. depending on how the keyboard is designed, rubber domes can feel completely different.

although i have never felt a rubber dome that feels like reds/blacks. every single rubber dome i have ever tried has some tactile feel to it.

very confused what keyboard you have tried that has rubber domes and is linear. even if they dont try to make the keyboard tactile, you still have the rubber dome to push.

I was speaking on the mushy feeling linear switches have.
