I can't decide on a switch..

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I want to go linears, my memory of blacks is good but i'm not sure how well they would hold up over long periods of time... that said reds seem like they are too light.

Have you considered Topre switches?

Like a RealForce or HHKB thumb.gif

well blacks hold up very well for me at work. Got a Cherry KB with blacks on my server for 3.5 year with daily use on them and havent had any issues yet.


never tried reds so I can be of no help on that one.

MX Blacks hold up forever... The switches in my WYSE which had keycaps worn into mirrors feels pretty much the same as my nopppo choc mini.

Not quite sure what you are tryign to say, the mx reds should hold up just as long too,.

What do you mean by the switches holding up? Like how long they would last or how comfortable they would be over long periods of usage? All cherry switches are more or less equal in how many key presses they can take anyway.

Eagle stated Reds are too light therefore it was irrelevant.
