[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 1221

post #12201 of 14551
I just wanted to say thanks to all the people who contributed to the mechanical keyboard guide and the other threads on this board. My Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 arrived the other day and I'm very happy with it.

Cheers,

Ade

Congrats and since this is your first post, welcome to OCN. That Ninja is a thing of beauty. I especially like the black logo in front.. very cool.

No, actually I came on board about 2 years after it was started.

Looks like Tom's Hardware copy and pasted from the OCN Mechanical Keyboard Guide.

Don't you just hate CopyPasta?

Cherry MX Black switches are purely linear (non-tactile), making them ideal for first-person shooter games. Since the keys in this type of gaming scenario are pressed frequently (and often with considerable force), a detectable pressure point is not necessary, and in some cases even disruptive.

Those who frequently make mistakes while typing will also benefit from this keyboard's relatively high operating force, which helps to avoid accidental strikes. This type of switch has most in common with the non-mechanical variety widespread in gaming keyboards. But it offers considerably more feeling and security against error, thanks to its high compression force. These keyboards are also relatively quiet, as far as mechanical switches go.

Cherry MX-Black switches are linear (non-tactile) switches, these are considered one of the best switch types for gaming. When gaming, having a tactile bump does absolutely nothing because you're going to be bottoming out anyway. So these give you a very smooth feel. The actuation and release points are at the exact same position as well. So games that require a lot of double tapping become easier than on any other keyswitch. However, most people don't enjoy typing on them that much do in part, to their linear nature.
If you're a person who tends to hit a wrong key every so often while gaming, these will be beneficial in that the high actuation force will help prevent many of those accidental presses.
Which one is from the mech keyboard guide and which one is from toms hardware? I would be furious if someone completely stole my whole write-up like they did.
Wahoo!

Overclock.net is a website with user generated information and images. You should have attributed those images to the user in question and linked back to the Mechanical Keyboard guide you took them from.
If anyone wants a more in depth guide go search for Mechanical Keyboard guide on Overclock.net. Manyak put a lot of time into it. Also user Ripster has a lot of good info.
Even though I'm a bit of an afterthought.
