I like the way it looks and LOVE the software, but the build quality isn't up to my white-glove test "golden standard." The stabilizers wobble around and the finish attracts my sweaty palm prints when I rest my hands there while gaming. I have a Filco for my workstation PC, and apparently Duckys are like backlit Filcos. I LOVE MY FILCO!!!! But does anyone have a suggestion for which switch type I should get? I love the way the blues feel while I type this and I love the sound they make, but I am worried it may not be the best for gaming. I have actually reconsidered the 4TB and am going to move the fileserver to a Shuttle I have sitting around by turning it into a NAS. I think I will still get a 2TB too, though, because I watch HD movies off of iTunes and I buy a new one every night so it fills up pretty quickly. And I am not worried about the overclock, I probably can't go too far on air anyways without delidding, (which I am starting to consider less and less.)

Reds are the standard for gaming keyboards but their very light on the pressure you have to apply and not the best for typing... I don't see why Blues would be an issue for gaming.

I know they're the standard for gaming. I basically focus on keyboards, as is suggested by my username. I am using Blues on my BWU to type this and they feel quite nice, I just worry that I am hindering myself when it comes to RTS or twitch games, because of the issue with doubletapping. Aside from that, Blues I would say are the best switch for basically everything, as long as you don't mind the click, (I love it!)
