Believe it or not, the click is not loud at all (I said this a few times in my most recent replies to this thread, so check them out because you may enjoy what I said). The sound of the keycaps bottoming out is actually louder than the click of the switch. When the keycaps are only gently bottomed out (such as bottoming out while trying to avoid bottoming out), then the volume of both sounds is about equal - or rather, it's difficult to tell which is louder. Either way, I feel that the sound of the click is subtle, very crisp, and very satisfying. I wouldn't have it any other way.

To put it in another way: if you're not bottoming out the keycaps against the body of the keyboard, then the keyboard is very quiet because all that's left is the subtle click. It's not quiet like a rubber dome, but I'm just trying to drive the point home about how quiet I think the click is as opposed to what I thought it would be like. It's subtle. It's also much easier to type on the Tactile Click than it was on the Razer Lycosa, and so I know I'm facing a future where I can type so lightly that I never bottom out.

If you were to bring the Tactile Click to Best Buy, set it upon the shelf next to the other keyboards and then compare the typing noise to the others, then you would find that the only way that this keyboard is louder than the others is when bottoming out (in the same way you have to bottom out the non-mechanical boards - by typing kinda hard, especially in comparison to how light one can type on the Cherry MX Blues). Otherwise, without bottoming out, you'd be finding yourself straining to hear the clicks of the switches in the louder environment of Best Buy. Even as I'm sitting here in this dead-silent room of mine, it's not really that loud at all. It's just a very pleasing and subtle (and crisp) click.

To finalize this, one of my requirements when I was looking for a new keyboard was that it had to be silent (much like those really quiet laptops). With that in mind, I am 100% happy with the Tactile Click NKRO. As I mentioned in my most recent posts: I wouldn't change anything about this keyboard at all. Actually, I would increase the cable length to around 6 or 6.5 feet (7 feet might be a bit too much) from the current 4.9 feet just to be more universally compatible with all computer setups. But other than that, I wouldn't change anything else.

Now that I own this keyboard, I'd like to make an analogy here and compare it to all other keyboards - especially the Lycosa: the difference is like comparing a child's pretend tool set to a man's real-life, high-quality, high-end professional tool set.

Here's what some guy named "dabeshu" from YouTube has to say about the Majestouch Tactile Click NKRO:

"The sound is as crisp as a dry leaf in the desert, and the feeling, i would say, is up there in the God-Tier with kneading a natural, high-quality pair of a pregnant woman's breasts."

I feel exactly the same way about the way this keyboard feels. But the sound? Well, I'm not as good with words as this guy, but using a dry leaf as an analogy throws me off since that's a dead leaf. But I can't come up with anything better!

Here's the video:

haha what a discription. He should get a bung for such advertisment.

I've sense gotten used to the blue tactile clicks. The biggest issue for me is, I used to keep on bottoming out on both browns and blues, even more on blues. I would like the least amount of energy as possible when typing.

And yah, 240 since I got the irock browns first before trying out the filco blues.

isn't the maximus keyboard around 1k each due to the lcd screen it has on the keys?

Except it's not LCDs, it's OLEDs.
