Trying greens now!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So after my K90 died on my (still don't know what happend, I went and get a CM quickfire rapid ten keyless with green switch. Since this is only my second mech, ( and first tenkeyless) (read: have not tried every type of switch), all i can say is that i prefer these green much more then the red ones. They feel more *multi-purpose* I found myself doing more office work and typing a LOT lately and not gaming as much and my K90 had grew kind of a pain.

So that's it! This was not a informational post or anything, it was just a *I like my new switch* post.

Going from reds to greens must be a big switch. I've never actually felt green switches before. Are they quite heavy?

Greens are awesome as are their quieter cousins (mx white) if you're like me and bottom out on everything. I really liked my kbt pure with whites (coming from filco with blues, and a filco with browns) because I didn't bottom out at all. My pure died and I have to exchange it, but still!

I've been wanting one of these MX green keyboard for a while now. It's really hard to get these things in Canada.

I have a problem with the blue switch , i do touch type and game so i press the buttons very minimal. If i do it that way with blue i get repeated letters.
Its so sad for me because blue switch like the most of all switches ,my black red and brown are not satisfying like my blue.
So my question is does green has the same problem as blue is you press at touch typing ,does you get double lettering?

It should be weird if it do the same ,because greens are pretty heavy so the chance the button is not pressed till bottom out is very big.
I really like blue and black aswell ,that should make the green. I only like black because its very easy to do very minimal pressing.
So as green switch not has the same problem and is confirment by more people then two, igo buy green asap:D

If the greens don't work out for you either, you could always try buckling springs. I'm not sure exactly how you get the double tap effect, but buckling spring switches are heavier than MX blue and have a shorter travel distance below the actuation point, so I would imagine that it would be harder to double tap the keys by accident.

Okay good tip ,but do you mean with buckling springs Topre realforce?
If you mean that then its problem for me ,because last time i ordered by Elitekeyboards a Leopold blue cherry, ipaid a lot for it.
90 dollar keyboard 45 dollar send cost, when it got here the courier said another 40 euro for checking or something outside europe.
So i paid 1.5 sending cost as the original product was.

THe tactillity from blues the click is so nice i click type with it ,but then there occur the problem. Gonna find a Coolermaster green if it is launched in the Netherlands.
But i shall stop typing in someone else topic.thumb.gif

Buckling springs, as in the keyswitches used in IBM model Ms and Unicomp keyboards (basically model M replicas).

Model Ms are nice because there is an abundance of used ones, so you can get them fairly cheap.
