Recommend me a mechanical keyboard - Page 2

What made you want greens? It seems like a strange choice for a first mechanical board. Even blue is a huge change from membrane, but with greens you will essentially be forced to type to actuation only, which might be a taxing learning curve.

I went with the greens because I like the noise that blues have, and greens have that sound too. I wanted blues, but was seeing that the keyboard I wanted wasn't going to be in stock for awhile, so I went with the one I wanted, but in greens because it was in stock. I'm sure I can get used to it. Might take some time, but I saw a review on a CM green switch keyboard and he said he really liked how it felt and the feedback, we will see tomorrow at the earliest, if not Wednesday.

Well, to be honest, I think blues could be easier to stop at switch activation. I bottom out on blues equally as often as I do on browns. Perhaps the extra force for the greens will give you more deceleration control and actually work out for the better if you're heavy handed like me?

That being said, I went with browns to try and train myself away from being heavy handed to reduce RSI issues and browns have worked better than blues to that end too. But for some reason I just find the "uniqueness" of blues (compared to the rubber domes we are surrounded by) attractive.

Might turn out that you've made the best choice. Will be interesting to hear how you feel about it after a month or two of daily use.

you'll be more than happy with greens over blues, due to the higher spring rate ( yes its noticeable ) the keys feel stiffer, yet more 'chunky' and solid feeling than blues. they will be heavier than a traditional keyboard, but Most people who try greens for awhile seem to prefer them over blues in the long run.

and the shines are great keyboards, so don't worry about second guessing your choice.


Also, for quick fast and informative mechanical keyboard q and a's, please post ini here, we will reply much faster.

Well I never actually used a mechanical keyboard before, but I am hoping that I like the greens. I will post in that thread about my first impressions, after a week and after a month.

yeah new boards, espc ones with heavier springs will feel really stiff at first, and after awhile they will break in a little bit and smooth out.
you're going to love em.

Good luck with the MX Green's, I have never used them not surprising really given that I found a 60g activation push weight on the MX Black's too tiring for extended use while gaming and pigging awful for typing!

I really pound my keys apparently, I find cherry blacks to be a little on the light side. I would probably prefer greens or a linear switch with the stiffer spring. Must be a bad habit I picked up someplace.

People adjust quickly, I didn't like the slickness of the keys on my Ducky at first, but after 2 weeks I don't notice it now.
