As you've said. For the most part, it's nit-picking. Twas just stating the technicalities behind it.

I do notice the tactile bump getting in the way, but I need to type on this computer still, so the Clears were a compromise (like the browns). It's really noticeable when I try to double jump with the scout in TF2. Sometimes the bump throws me out of rhythm, and I end up dying like an idiot.
(By out of Rhythm, I mean I don't bring the key back up far enough, and then I push down again for nothing)

After my Notepad test, I think I understand how that would happen to you or anyone else.

Do want. . . either one . One of these two will be my next purchase. I figure by the time fall rolls around.

Why not the all 55g version of the Realforce?

the 55g model is probably better suited for gaming where the inconsistent force of the standard model is a problem for gaming. in the end the Topre Realforce is a typing keyboard and Paulie Walnuts owns a Deck Legend so I would choose the standard model for the ergonomic feature as well.

I don't like it at all, I now use my Microsoft Comfort Curve for practicing and scrims.

It's not nit picking on the blues, I literally would use a $5 rubber dome keyboard over them in games, assuming I could press enough keys at once lol. It's a pretty big deal, I consider quite a few games unplayable with them.

EDIT: Nevermind, apparently they don't like it.

I'll just stick to my HP for now I guess.
If you're going to be that picky then get this one.

And just because one person doesn't like a keyboard that doesn't make it bad. The new Lenovo ones aren't as high quality as the older IBM ones, but that doesn't mean that they're HP cheap and going to fall apart. And their feel is still excellent, and they still have no flex, which is all that really matters.

FWIW, I would have called you crazy before this weekend. I got my hands on a SIIG Mechanical KB ( Cherry Blues ). Although the keyboard feels great for typing and other non-gaming uses, there isn't any type of game I'd prefer to play with the blues over any of my Cherry Blacks. I would probably prefer a rubberdome over the Blues for gaming too. The way the blues work, it requires just way too much lifting for fast double taps in fps movement or rts commands. Sorry TwoCables, I have to agree 100% with Imnop and Crazy9000 on this one, after getting to use Blacks, Blues, Browns, and Black Alps. Cherry Blacks are superior for gaming in every way ( I'll hopefully get to use Reds by the end of this month ).

Crazy9000: Saw your comment earlier saying only non-serious gamers could prefer the Blues over Blacks, would have totally wrote this off if I didn't experience using the blues today. You and Imnop are flatout right!

TwoCables, the best description I can provide is the fact that I don't have to fully release the key my finger just pressed down to register another fast press. If you've ever played a fighting game on an arcade stick, a technique top level players use is double-tapping, it's used with 2 fingers instead of 1 though. I feel as though I can only replicate such precise and agile presses on a linear switch. This strong belief is only towards gaming, the blues feel great for everything else, very fun to use.

I don't need an apology. I mean, it's not like I was trying to say that lmnop and Crazy9000 are wrong or anything like that - I was more or less just trying to better understand why.

On a completely unrelated note: as you may have noticed, I typed "lmnop". Her name is "lmnop", as in "a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p". Or, "L M N O P".
