Mech. backlit keyboard - Page 2

Pick up a clicky ballpoint pen. The type where you click the base to make the tip pop out. Click it. That's tactile. And clicky! An MX Blue switch is similar, but has the click/tactile feel in the middle (go halfway then click then goes the rest of the way) and it's tuned in force and feeling to feel real good when typing.

MX brown is a bit more subtle with less tactile feel and no click.

MX black and red have no tactile feel at all; it's like pushing on a spring.

Thank you, that is about the BEST answer I could have gotten. Now I wish I would have ordered 2 of the browns. I would have liked the tactile 'click'
Oh well, I now have 1 brown and one black. one for me, one for my brother.

There was no offer of blue with the offer I was given, but it was 75 each for CM Triggers (over 100$ board) WITH the 2 year warranties still register-able.

EDIT: I really with I could have given you a rep, when did you retire by the way? I remember you being staff for (what I thought was) years. I lurked for a while before actually signing up and posting.

There is a code in the online sales section, storm_keyboard30. Not sure if it still works, but last week there was a sale going on and many of us jumped on it. Got my first mech keyboard, the Quickfire Pro with brown switches and it is amazing! The above comment about it being like pushing on a spring does come to mind when I use it, as I am not quite accustomed to the tactile feel yet. Either way, you will immediately notice the difference from the damn dome keys you are probably used to. I'm typing on one now and it's pissing me off...
Edit: that code is for the Cooler Master website
