Great tactile feedback and the beautiful music of the clickety clack.
Good luck and enjoy!
Not as good for gaming as the reds imo though. In fact I didn't want to proceed gaming on blues after some hours trying because of the actuation and release point being too far apart. Made it a pain to accurately double press one key.

Of course they are rather uninteresting directly compared to the blues. But I'm more interested in typing on what feels like a cloud of boobs... oops there, I said it.
And in the end all switches become "uninteresting" once you get used to them all. So what's left is your actual feel about the switch itself, not it's presentation or first time encounter.

All I do is bottom out and It's annoying.
Go with Blue's or Brown's if you can find them.
Browns actuation force is 45g, the same as reds.
And: bottoming out is nothing to complain about as long as you don't have a problem with the sound of that.
I bottom out on reds, blues and browns. Only ones I didn't (and that's why they were interesting to me) were the blacks.

I have the same opinion as the guide then.
Enjoy your new keyboard.
