So if you would have to write a top 3 chart of switches (durability+precision+fleel+clicky sound) we hathe the buckilg spring of the Model M I'm writing you with at the first place... how about the second and third places?

Like I've said before I don't recommend specific switches or keyboards. Pisses people off.

Why not get a Model M if you like them. They are good and can be found cheap if you search and dont mind cleaning them.

If not I suggest you try : Blue, Topre then some high end scissor switches. I say TRY because the switch is a very personal thing. Some people love one even thought it is not the usual type for their style. There are a lot of choices right now and if you are willing to give them some time and actually spend a bit of effort learning to type they should all be wonderful for you. Its like picking the best candy. They are all good and even the best is better than not having candy.

I wish there was some way to try a Topre before buying it... those 87U keyboards are crazy money if you aren't sure that you'll like it. I know you can resell it for near no loss and all, but still.

@DaClownie I much prefer my 87u over my Quickfire with Blues. I was pretty hesitant on ordering the 87u, but i don't regret it one bit now.

To offer a counterpoint, I preferred every MX switch over Topre and sold my 87U as soon as I could.

Is it true that keyboards doesnt operate on HZ frequensies 125hz and 1000 hz?

Im looking for a mini-size keyboard with cherry MX switches. Any good suggestions? Shipped to Denmark.

I have two of them (and I'm writing with one of them as you can read in my 'main rig'). I was just curious.
Unfortunately most of the shops in Italy don't have any mechanical keyboards to try the switches myself.
That's why I asked.

PS/2 interface is interrupt based, USB is polling based with an interval that depends on the controller.
