I have a sampler from them & I can say that it does give you a very good idea of what a switch is like. Though noise characteristics can be slightly different with some boards due to plastic materials, the CM Sampler will give you the best case scenario of a switch at it's loudest.

Also Qwerkeys are opening up a distribution center in LA soon so shipping prices should be reduced considerably.
Thanks both of you.
Also, this is more pointed at you Tator Tot, but if you happen to know the answer Paradigm feel free to answer: Would trying on blacks tell me whether or not whether greens would be too heavy for my taste?
I just find it odd that the actuation force is actually less for a brown (according to the Mechanical Keyboard Guide thread stickied here), and that according to the description for MX Clear, their actuation force is close to a Rubber Dome; which I type on daily for school and I have one at home that gets used quite often; both without tiring out my fingers. So I don't understand why Browns would tire my fingers out when rubber domes are apparently comparable to the "heavy browns". Maybe I'll go in sometime this week and try them both out again.
