[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 1417

post #14161 of 14564
Got it in last night and am loving it. They feel real good for me typing, no stress to my fingers yet anyway, I'm really heavy fingered so it feels like I'm barely brushing them when I can go to the next key.

I'm testing these days the SS 6GV2 mech keyboard that features cherry black switches. So far it produces less sound thatn the cherry red and blue ones that I had in the past (Razer BlackWidow)

I just got a ducky shine 3 to replace my Black Widow Ultimate and I could not remember if my BWU was this stiff ( with the key press ) when typing, I like the minimalistic look and also how supports on the space bar.

What switch type was the BWU and what is the DS3?

I'm new to the concept of these mechanical keyboards. I'm trying to absorb the information on the first post, there is so much information.

I am currently using my 10 year old Logitech MX3100 wireless mouse and keyboard. I am now looking for an upgrade.

I do want to maintain a wireless setup, however. Are there any wireless mechanical keyboards? If so, which ones are the closest to silent?

Switch choice is up to you, I'd suggest reading the guide to help but the MX-Brown & MX-Red will be the quiet switches. MX-Reds are linear and lighter while MX-Browns are Tactile and a bit heavier making them feel closer to a rubber dome switch due to the bump mid-way.

I'd almost say the Red is closer. I just did a quick comparison with all 3. No real bump in the rubber although it's subtle any way you slice it. It's just that bottom hit of the rubber that makes it feel inferior on a healthy one.
