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.

Be aware that the red switches does not offer what you seem to seek. They are plain linear switches. They offer zero tactile feedback and zero noise. You may find blue switches better for you. I own both a keyboard with reds and blues and the blues made the red switches feel quite dull.
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. biggrin.gif
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.

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. wink.gif
Enjoy your new keyboard.

Just got it. Lots of packaging for such a small thing.

It's got some heft to it, feels quality, that's for sure, adjusting to typing on it. Spacebar does that "bottoming" out, I suppose, but the rest of the keys are fine. One thing that surprises me is "Delete / Backspace" is insanely quick compared to my old Keyboard. Have to get used to that. I like the feelings of the other keys and it's general style. Only the space bar really annoys me with it's sound.

Backspace being light is a plus...probably due to the costar stabilizers.
Other mechs are like that too...except for Model Ms, which feel sluggish in backspace, enter, etc.
Out of the box I knew I favored red switches over others after having blacks, blues, and browns...sounds like its the same for you.
Be warned mech keyboards can be addicting.
Soon you will have more, trust me XD

Lol, I dunno about that, I'm pretty OK with just one Keyboard. It's nice though. Just about backspace is I mean before I used to have to hold it down for it to delete multiple letters,. now just one quick click of it deletes 2-3.

Well everybody and thier grandmother always says browns are the best for typing and gaming, thats the general concensus i got when i first started researching switches. It still holds true today, browns seem to be the middle ground.
