So what is it? The MX Brown doesn't make the *clackity clack* noise that the MX Blue does. Oh, and all the Cherry keys are mechanical. And hence, Razer's switch to the MX Brown keys (Even Razer thinks the Cherry Blue is inferior so I don't know what the argument here is
Between blues and browns there is only a 5g difference in force, they both travel 2mm, 4 to the bottom as far as I'm aware. The blue is preferred for typing, hence the click clack for audio feedback, the browns are the middle ground between typing and gaming, and black & red are suppose to be the best.
I've been using Blues for FPS, RTS, MMO, and everything in between, I've yet to have a single problem making complex movements because of my switch type. In quite a few cases hearing and feeling the click help me in games, the more feedback the better.
The only people who complain about blues in gaming are the ones who haven't used them.
Razer- Like the rest of the critically acclaimed Razer BlackWidow line-up, the core feature of the Tournament Edition keyboard is its blue switch mechanical key infrastructure. Crisp, distinctive tactile feedback at the fingertips, rapid-fire keystroke actuations faster than an opponent can react, and improved anti-ghosting, makes this the only keyboard to match the unrelentingly fast reflexes and instincts of the best pro-gamers.
Razer doesn't seem to think so either.
