Also, your comment is a fallacy. The various switch types are all different and have different purposes, and you can never have "All the +s" so to speak.
Reds and Blacks are inline, and will always
outperform any tactile switch in response and reset due to the complete lack of a reset distance. But they come at the price of no feedback besides bottoming out and are very easy to typo on. It is possible to "float" with them, which I can provide an example of if wanted.
Blues, Greens, and Razer's version of the Greens are "clicky", which gives that awesome feel that is great when typing but sucks for "floating" since you can't really hover over the actuation point and you need to pull back to reset the switch.
Browns, Clears, and Razor's Orange are bumpy but not clicky. You get some of the feel of the blues without the noise, and their reset point is much much closer than Blues, but they lose to both other main categories in their respective duties. They're the Jack Of All Trades switch and most people like it most since it doesn't really have big downsides.
And then you get into more complex switches like Scissor, Buckling Spring, Apls, and Topre, which each have their own distinctive feel.
However I did listen to several Stealths with orange switches comparisons... That is not that silent. It is quiet compared to the blues for certain, but compared to my reds... It has a long way to go. But hey, you don't have to give up the tactile feel like I do, so you got that going for ya.
I want to get Blacks in my next keyboard personally. I love my reds, but I beat on my keys pretty hard and could use something a little tougher.
