Time to change!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Currently have a Razer BWU will blues. Will definitely get a Ducky Shine 2. I have a couple of questions...

1. Is the only difference between browns and blues is the noise?
2. For people with reds and blacks, is there a noticeable bottoming out or is it pure quality control?

Thank you

1. Yes the major difference in the noise. Blues click when it actuates and browns just have the resistance without the click,

2. Bottoming out is dependent on the keyboard and and user. Some people hit the key harder than others and certain keyboards have a metal back plate that really causes a loud clang when bottoming out. I'm not exactly sure what the ducky shine uses for a back plate but it is probably plastic.

1. In my opinion no - the feedback from brown switches feels rougher than blues.

2. depends on the user, I never found it to be a problem and with experience you can learn to not bottom out, or just get some o-rings if the noise bothers you.
